4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for four nights while vacationing in the keys. The hotel is in good repair and has a friendly staff. They have a restaurant and marina on the property. The location is perfect for a visit to the keys, we visited Islamorada, Big Pine, and key west within a reasonable drive.

Was in Marathon for a fishing trip, the accommodations here were very comfortable, every staff member was friendly, the pool was great (saltwater). But, I woke up one morning by snoring from the adjoining room, and it was not a connected room. The footsteps form the floor above were loud as well. Other than that, it was a wonderful place...

It was a very nice and clean facility. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was free, but wasn't the most tasty. It is centrally located on Marathon Key and is easy to find. It has a large parking lot, but has many boat trailers from other travelers. Beware where you park at night since many of these trailers... More

When you see waterfront and all the other glowing things people say it sounds great, right? When our family of four opened up our door our view out our cave window was shutters.

Stayed one night with a group after a day trip to the Key West. Right off of highway and very clean. We got up early and went down to the beach to watch the sunrise. It was beautiful. I would recommend to others and stay again. Service and attitude of hotel was great

Great location. Loved the restaurant behind the hotel. Great service and food but a bit expensive. Enjoyed the convenient snorkling tour that leaves from the property. Restuarant across the street was awesome but expensive. Pool was beautiful but too crowded so never used it. Free parking a plus. Clean but had a strange smell. Wasn't able to open the windows...

The HIE Marathon is an outstanding and reliable staple in the Middle Keys! Front desk staff member was very helpful with dinner recommendations. Room was standard HIE fare, no complaints. Pool area was very nice & had plenty of lounge chairs. Breakfast was varied and consistently stocked, but small area was a bit crowded. Would recommend a stay here!
