“It does what it says on the tin!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

This is basic, clean old fashioned accommodation with the most amazing views out over the ocean. It has its own individual docks for your boat (if you happen to have one).......if not.....it's a great place to sit and feed the fish and talk to the pelicans, egrets, herons and cormorants that perch on the moorings. I saw a beautiful huge turtle swim past and the same week other guests saw manatees. The room is not glitzy but it has everything you need, the bed was fresh, clean and comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful. THE VIEWS WERE SUPERB and more than made up for the lack of luxury. You make your choices!

We made a last minute decision to go to the Keys for Memorial Day. We had heard about the Bay View and called to see if we could get a room. Kathy, our host, made arrangements for us to stay with her for two night and a third night at the White Sands. The description of the Bay View in other Trip Advisor posts was correct. It is a cute motel with flowers everywhere. It is my idea of the Keys. We had a room facing the Gulf and were able to dock our boat in front of our room. It was perfect access to the Gulf or around the corner to the Atlantic. Our room had everything we needed - - a small kitchen, coffeemaker, and excellent AC unit. There is a very nice pool, bbq grills, fish cleaniing area, and a bar outside where we could sit with a cocktail and enjoy the evening. There is even boat rental available for a very good price. I would recommend the Bay View to anyone who wants to spend a relaxing vacation in the Key.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the waterfront rooms on the first .

We were very pleased with our stay. We enjoyed the simple atmosphere. The room was nicely decorated and had modern conveniences. It was clean and maintained. The second floor room provided us a great view of the bay and the bridge. We found the owners to be friendly and accomodating. They provided all that we asked for.

My wife and I were quite comfortable and enjoyed our stay there. We'll be back.

I stayed here for a long weekend. The owners were very friendly, flexible, and accommodating. I got the peace of being on a quiet key but had very easy access to Marathon when I wanted to do more than just hang out. The long key aqueduct is great for a run (3 miles each way). Cathy and Ed hosted a very fun Super Bowl gathering at the tiki hut, which was a great way to meet fellow guests and neighbors. The room itself had a cool island theme with a great four-post bed and deck with view of the bay. Definitely plan on coming back.

I passed this Motel on my way to Key West. Planning just to stay for one night I stayed 3 nights and skipped Key West at all.

I stayed in a room on the second floor with a private balcony and with a very nice view over the Gulf. The bed was comfortable and the room was specious for one person. As I checked in the owner was very friendly and supportive. Giving me directions to the closest restaurant and bar. The room was nice decorated but not super nice clean. I'm not very picky so it did't bother me that much. The most important was for me a fresh, clean bed and a clean bathroom. And this is what I got. Also hair dryers, additional towels and beach towels are available upon request. They don't have a cleaning service but you can ask for it at the front desk (for an additional charge I suppose). They have a washing machne and dryers to use. Really convenient was the small fridge and microwave in the room.

They got a nice pool and a little private beach. Small but totaly enough for a quick jump into the water. Free parking which is nice. No continental breakfast but coffee/tee in the morning.

Bahia Honda State park is also not far. About 35 min.
Dolphn Research Center about 15 min
Walgreens, CVS, Grocery store etc. are just 15 min away in Marathon.


All by all. I had a great time and would come again.

we found bayview online by fluke, and from the 1st conversation with ed and kathy we knew we found the perfect place! we brought our boat down and our room overlooked our slip! very easy access to the gulf and atlantic. the rooms were clean and the property was very well maintained. we loved that there was a store right on property, and they have watersport activity rentals. this was our 1st but definatly not our last time vacationing at the bayview!

This place is great! We stayed here for a weekend and loved it! not only are you right on the water but only minutes away from Marathon! The pool is just the right size for kids, we had an 11 yr old with us and she loved swimming all night! The pool's depth is great just at 5ft in the deap end, and had life jackets on hand. The tiki bar, and grills are right by the pool so everyone is still all together while outside. We will be back! :)
