We stayed here on a recent trip to Miami and the Keys - did 2 nights in South Beach and continued on from Big Pine Key to Key West afterwards. This was the budget portion of our trip where we wanted to find a slightly less expensive place to stay so we could partake in some of the outdoor activities in Big Pine Key.
We stayed in #2. In general it was exactly what we expected. It sort of feels like an old beach house - dark wood paneling on the inside, but with a cable tv (I was pleasantly surprised by that!), mini fridge, microwave, and bathroom. The bathroom was not incredibly clean, though I suspect that's just age and not actual dirt! The location was perfect - a WALK to No Name Pub which we loved cause it meant we could have an extra beer or two with the delicious pizza. And the Key Deer outside our door each morning were so beautiful to see (though many of the guests were feeding them, which you're not supposed to do!) I should mention that while it was a quiet place to stay during our visit, no one was staying in the unit that attached to ours, so I suspect it probably would have been a much different experience had people been in that unit. We'd likely have been able to hear things through the walls since the wall is shared.
All that being said, while we weren't expecting a 4 star hotel, we forgot that a lower budget place also means lower budget mattresses. And this was probably one of the worst mattresses we've ever slept on in our lives. So much so that it really effected our sleep. Because of that, I probably wouldn't stay here again. I think it's fine for tired fishermen but for anyone who cares about their sleep, I'd look elsewhere.
