I can only speak for my family. We were at this place this weekend (along with 30 + other friends) as we have been for many years in the past. Last year we noticed a difference in the management style of the people that had taken over. Before the old management would be very friendly, new us and would sit and talk with us. We had never had a problem with them to the contrary they liked us. In my opinion last year they had a new management team who were not interested in customer service but in harrassing us. One of the management came by and unpluged our radio from the electric socket. Told us to quiet down and walked off. Our average age is approx. 65 and we were a little loud but having a good time down at the beach. This was a vacation and we may have been a little loud but there is a way to approach people. Disconnecting the radio; which they really shouldn't touch, but ask that we turn it off and insult us is not good. This year we got more of the same but with new accusations. By the way I saw some people cooking at the BBQ grill with a little radio playing, not loud at all and management went by and unplugged the unit and told them that radios were not allowed there. I believe that the rules should be followed and even this year we were a little loud singing happy birthday to one of our friend that turned 70!!!!! . So once again we were scolded. We will not be returning not because they told us to turn off the music or that maybe we were a little loud but because of the lack of respect and indifference they displayed not only to us but other guests. I believe that this will catch up with them in the long run. We rented over 20 rooms for 3 days and I am sure we will find a place that will allow a radio and singing DURING OUR VACATION!!!

Room Tip: If you intend on having fun, having your kids playing, maybe being a little loud maybe playing music...

Been going there for the past 6 years and unfortuanely due to the new management that came aboard a few years ago we will not going there again under this property manager and her assistant. The new management is rude,arrogant and accusatory . They do not know how to provide good customer service and do not want anyone to have a good time . Do not go there if you want to have fun and enjoy the amenties. The rules are not a Keys friendly atomsphere .

Rooms are nice and the outside areas are well kept. I could sit on the beach and watch the boats go by for hours. Very nice "upper" beach that is well manicured. Good location...right next door to Sunset Park where you can watch a beautiful sunset and near locations for breakfast, lunch and dinner and deep sea fishing or kayaking I disagree with those that complain of "rules"...the rules help keep the charm of the Continental Inn.

Contintel Inn/Key Colony City has a lot of rules that aren't the best combination for thirty-something's looking for a romantic getaway - if that is what you are looking for then know to look elsewhere. I spent a lot of time looking for 'just the right place' on TA and would have liked to have known a bit of the following: We arrived to a group of loud kids and the rule that pool hours are sunrise to sunset so no swimming at night - after a night of little to no sleep, an early flight, and a 3 hours drive, I could have cried. Fortunately the rooms are super clean and Spark's Landing is right around the corner - love that place. Also, they say the beach is swimable and snorkel friendly but I did not get that impression at all - nor did i see anyone else doing it - and we were here for 4 days/nights. Clean place but I think we would have had a different experience having stayed somewhere else.

In June we stayed in room #9 at the Continental Inn. It was one room away from the beach, freshly furnished and clean, Hemingway books on the shelf, a flat screen TV and Blue ray player, with everything you needed for a romantic getaway.

Sad to say that after 5 years of staying at the Continental, we won't be back. We brought a very large family/friends group (30 of us, total...18 were kids) and were constantly walking on egg shells. Many of the rules are Key Colony city rules, but what used to be a fun, family-oriented place has turned into what should be an adults only joint.
Owners of Continental Inn units, what have you done?! This management team is NOTHING like Dave and his wife, and the additional office staff leaves a ton to be desired, too. I hope that some of you (owners) read the comments here; they are all the same. You must do something soon, or allow it to go adults only (and maybe that's the desired outcome).
So sad.
