Me and my family went there last summer and i thought that it was great.We got two suites that joined by a door.If you have a family of around 5 or up i definitely recommend the two rooms.The place was very clean and the staff was very nice.If your looking for a affordable yet awesome place to stay this is it!!!

Room Tip: get two suites that are joined

Our arrival was greeted with very friendly and accommodating staff at the front desk, when we arrived at our room we were suprised to find it very spacious, with a full kitchen, 2 large ( queen sized beds) and our own private deck with chairs. The condo included free fast internet, friendly daily service, and cable television. It was soo close to the ocean we were just blown away. ( Our deck also included an ocean view)

just steps away, their is a wonderful bbq pit ( we BBq'd every night it was the perfect setting) picnic tables, nice lawn chairs, and every day the outdoors was re- set up and very pristine. ( great place to watch the sunset and sunrise)
Overall our stay was wonderful, we wouldn't change a thing. Our last vacation was to St martin where we stayed at the Westin, after staying here at marathon, there is no reason to go to a foreign country when you can enjoy all the wonders and more in our own country.
I think our apt was number 39 they rent them out individually from what I was told, so each one is different on the inside next year we already booked the same one!

HOpe this helps, and you enjoy your travels!

Room Tip: Condo number 39 is where we stayed and loved

We love the Continental Inn! We have been going there for over 12 years now. For the past couple of years we have really noticed a damper on the place and its the aura the managers bring! if they are not complaining about everything you do (which believe me! we know the rules and DO NOT break them), giving you attitude (as if everything you ask is a bother or a stupid question) or just lurking around and staring at you, im absolutely sure you can see them walking around with some sot of drink on their face. theyre just rude and not very welcoming or friendly like managers should be! Not to mention they seem very judgemental! If you arrive with a big group they automatically have you under a constant radar!

other than that, the place is great! rooms are a little out dated, but, thats the keys style! not to mention....LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! great views and beach! VERY clean! EXTREMELY friendly staff!

We recently sent some friends over there and also had the same experience! Along with another couple we were talking to on the beach. I'm almost afraid to recommend this hotel anymore!

i really wish the managers would just lighten up a little and give people a chance and understand we are on VACATION and that they are working! WE ARE THEIR BUSINESS! In the many years my husband and I have been going and taking our children we have never had an issue with the management until now. It really is a shame.

We stayed at the Continental Inn for three nights. Our room was very spacious and clean. The grounds were also very well maintained. The community surrounding the property was lovely and seemed to be a very nice area. The property was convenient to Marathon and was not too far from Key West. Sunset Park is next door and is a great place to catch a sunset! There were also several shops and restaurants near by.

My favorite part about this property was the beach. It was immaculate and had several places to sit and watch a sunrise or relax and hear the ocean in the evenings. The tiki grills on property were very nice, even though we didn’t get a chance to use them.

This property is very reasonably priced and is a lot nicer than some of the other properties in the area that you get for the same price. I would definitely stay again and look forward to doing so again soon!!

Room Tip: I wouldn't pay extra for ocean view rooms

We stay at the Continental Inn any time we are down in the Keys. We usually stop here on our way back to Miami. After all the craziness of Duval Street it is a welcome place to relax. The Inn really appears to be condos, some of which are owner occupied and some of which are rented out. There is a pool in the courtyard and a little "beach" built on the sea wall. There are plenty of lounge chairs and picnic tables out by the water and it is a very comfortable place to hang out and catch some sun. There is also a little sunset beach almost right next door where everyone gathers to watch the sun set (always beautiful). If you want to visit a great nearby beach while on Key Colony Beach, go to Sombrero Beach or drive to Bahia Honda (which is conveniently close by). We love this place!

Stayed at the Continental Inn for four nights in a in a two bedroom unit. We were immediately greeted by two palmetto bugs lying on the floor in their death throes. I got up in the the middle of the night and stepped in large puddle in the hallway. Apparently the air conditioner had frozen up and was leaking and not working. It was repaired in the morning. The shower was another adventure as there was either scalding hot or freezing water and no other option. Also the beds creaked loudly and sunk in the middle. Key Colony is a very nice area and there are many better lodging alternatives than the Continenetal Inn including Sea Isle next door.

They mean it when they say you have everything you need both in the kitchen & for picnics on the beach, day trips, etc. The decor is funky (straight out of the 1980s), but the beds are comfortable, hot water is on-demand & plentiful, and the temp controls are just right. The private beach is lovely. Sunset Park, aptly named, is just 2 properties away. The sunsets there rival Maui. The other guests were respectful of the quiet hours and generally low-key. I thought it was wonderful. A real mom-and-pop place w/the owners living on property.
