“Not very good”
Reviewed July 12, 2004

My husband and I stayed at the Big Pine Motel on the night of July 11, 2004. For the price and from their website, I wasn't expecting too much. Even taking that into consideration, a night's stay at this motel is not worth the $79 (plus tax) that they charge you. There were ants all over the room, crawling on the t.v., crawling on the bed, crawling all over the counters. The bedsheets were not clean. In addition to the cigarette burn holes, the sheets had some sort of gritty black stuff scattered on them. The floor was so dirty that my feet actually turned black from walking across them barefoot. The bathroom shower worked but it had no showerhead on it, so the water came out as a full-forced blast straight out of the pipe. Even the telephones in the rooms did not work! The swimming pool looked like it had not been cleaned for weeks - it had lots of debris (natural and human) floating in it. Plus the pool is only 3 feet deep so even if it had been clean there wouldn't be much incentive to go swimming in it.

At least the air conditioning in our room worked, and at least the refrigerator seemed clean. However, the only real positive thing about this motel is that the current managers are very friendly and talkative. Too bad their reception area stank of cigarette smoke.

Unfortunately, there aren't too many alternatives for a low cost place to stay in Big Pine Key. At least this place is easy to find, it's right on the highway. Maybe the rooms were so filthy because they were short staffed? I would advise you to check out the Bahia Honda cabins/campsites or "Ed and Ellen's" (both are low cost) before you settle for this place. In case you have no choice but to stay at this motel, here's a helpful tip - the t.v. remote is part of the alarm clock. Knowing that will save you a lot of frustration if you plan on watching t.v. (especially since they don't tell you at check-in and you can't call the office since the phones don't work).
