I left a review of this hotel last year and thought I would update again for 2012. My husband and I stayed at the Big Pine Motel in Sept. 2012. My husband and I are the types that don't need to be pampered every momeny of our vacation but we have very high standards when it comes to cleanliness, security, and reputation of anywhere we visit. And after two visits now, the Big Pine Key Motel remains a favorite stay in the Lower Keys.
No, this isn't a "luxury" hotel and if you are looking to feel like royalty and spend more money on lodging then a boutique hotel in Key West is probably for you. But if you want to visit the gorgeous beaches at Bahia Honda State Park, you cannot do better for the price. Also, the motel is just a minute drive away from little local shops, a great bagel joint, Chinese restaurant, and the Key Deer Refuge. Our $89 room came with a fridge, tv, cold ac, two beds, microwave, table, and two chairs. It was comfortable, quiet, and we slept all through the night. Speedy check in and check out, trustworthy front desk staff who charged exactly what they quoted us.
All in all, a great budget option. We saved money by cutting out the frill and fluff but not sacrificing a bit of comfort and fun. We'll definitely be back!
