Stayed here in January. It was the weekend of the Key West Half marathon and we had a hard time finding last minute lodging anywhere in the Keys. We travel with our french bulldogs so this limited where we could stay. Didn't have a great feeling about it but we were committed to a Keys visit. When we arrived the desk gave us our key and we went to our room. The room was much nicer than the places we had stayed in Hollywood Florida the week before. Our room looked out over the canal and we could see the African Queen and other boats from the room. Parking is limited but there was never a problem finding a space while we were there. Overall this was a very good value. The breakfast is pretty average, all store bought rather from a local bakery.

I just finished a one night stay at this adorable marina hotel located right on the bay and just off the main highway and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. In the past I have stayed at the Holiday Inn right behind it but due to it being sold out I had no choice except to stay here. This hotel is an adorable little gem tucked away behind the Holiday Inn right on the water. I originally booked a regular double bed room on Trip Advisor but apparently this was the last room left and I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite with 2 full bathrooms and a complete wrap around balcony, a full kitchen, dining area and living room at no extra cost. It was just perfect. Not only that there is a 3rd double bed that comes out of the wall to make a 3 bedroom. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable. If I had known it was going to be this good I would have booked for the weekend rather than one night. When I awoke in the morning I sat out on my wrap around balcony outside the master bedroom drinking my coffee watching all the boats drive past me and the beautiful scenery all around me. It was fabulous. I liked it so much better than the Holiday Inn and I will definitely stay here again when I'm in the Key Largo area. Kudos to Marina Del Mar for having a hotel that is so friendly, flexible, and so adorable.

This hotel has been beautifully renovated and clean, and the grounds are incredible. The pool is accompanied by a Jacuzzi hot tub. The hotel is right on the marina and operates charter boats, a restaurant, etc. There is no beach, but only the most expensive hotels have them, because they're all manmade on this part of the keys. Nevertheless the hotel is located about 2 miles from a state park beach and is nicely located in town with respect to restaurants and stores. We booked through an outside agency at a discount, and the hotel staff upgraded our room at no extra cost to one valued at 3 times what we paid (a 1-bedroom suite). The suite had a king-size bed, a queen pull-down in a spacious LR with very comfortable couch, dinette set, kitchenette, 2-sink bathroom, and Jacuzzi bathtub. The bed is a bit firm for us, but it is high quality and pilowtop. The rooms all appear to have individual balconies or porches. The staff was very courteous and professional. Others have pointed out that the breakfast is "continental buffet" -- a bit sparse, but we knew that coming and didn't expect more. We would definitely return.

Just returned from Marina Del Mar in Key Largo. The hotel is located at a great location just off the main hwy 1, and behind the Holiday Inn. The resort faces the marina with many charter boats. The hotel staff is friendly. The morning desk clerk, (male), was extremely friendly and helpful in providing information. He provided a great cheerful welcome that began our 4 day stay. We stayed in a 2 bed marina view room. However, after viewing a few of the other vacant rooms that had the kitchenettes, the next time we will upgrade most surely. We had no problem or complaints with our room. The room was very roomy, and had a small refrigerator and coffee maker. All the rooms are close to the elevator. The view of the marina is great. It's nice to wake and see the boats going out in the morning. The hotel provides a small continental breakfast in the lobby. The only thing lacking with the breakfast was fresh fruit. But no biggie. You can sit outside on the deck facing the Marina or outside in front of the pool area on umbrella tables. There is a small gift shop located in the lobby with a quaint selection of gifts, not overly priced either. They do have a computer in the lobby for guest however, it is outdated and some sites you can not get on. The computer printer can be used only to print out boarding passes. The pool area is great.. It is a large pool that goes from 3ft to 6 ft., and there is a Jacuzzi located next to the pool area. The grounds surrounding the hotel are maintained. There is a paved path you can walk along side of the boat marina and at the end of the hotel complex buildings there is Sharkey's restaurant that serves meals while you overlook the Marina. I will most surely return there. I have to give accolades to the very friendly staff, especially the Male Morning Front Desk Clerk (who I failed to remember his name), and the other desk clerks. The housekeeping staff is very friendly and everyone greeted you with a welcome hello. We did have a problem with the toilet, and telephoned the front desk, and within 30 minutes, a repairman was knocking and solved the problem. Everyone seemed to be very proficient in their jobs.

Location: The hotel is located near many restaurants and near the State Park where we took the glass bottom boat ride. However, the hotel does offer a glass bottom boat ride at the marina at a discounted rate. We just happen to be at the State Park and decided to take it with them since we were already there and it was scheduled to leave within 15 minutes. The hotel can also provide a vendor at the marina for fishing trips which I would highly recommend you doing. The hotel is a few blocks from the Key Largo Fisheries Backyard Café which sales fresh fish inside and on the outside is a café restaurant where you can sit on the deck and eat while overlooking their fishing marina. The food is just great with good prices. The area surrounding the Marina Del Mar Resort is very quite. The only small negative is the parking. You might have difficulty parking close to your building. There is parking in the adjacent lot, and if you are handicap be sure to bring your handicap sticker as there are several handicap spot that always seemed to be available. I must say though, we were able to find close parking spots to our building. They do have a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers. Cost: $2.00 ea. quarters only. On each floor there are ice machines and vending machine for pop and snacks.

I too had read some of the reviews and was skeptical about staying, however, I had no problem whatsoever, and will be staying there again. True it's not the Ritz or Hilton, but it was darn good and a refreshing getaway from the rat race. A great place to relax and unwind with nature and great staff. A special accolade to the Male Morning Desk Clerk. Hope they keep the rates at a decent price.

Very dated but nice and clean and freshly painted. We were upgraded to a king bed with kitchen living area and murphy bed. Lovely marina with pretty sunsets and access to many water sports. Sharkey's bar and restaurant next door offers good food and entertainment. Breakfast needs vast improvement. Bagels were pretty bad the days we were there. No fruit or yogurt. Reasonable for the price.

Choose to stay at ghis hotel when we had a night free between two other booking. We paid around 135 USD for a room that smelled like mould, had a front door that sounded like it was about to break every time you opened it and a bathroom that had seen better days. The breakfast was very basic so if you need more than cereals and milk/coffe with a bagel and marmalade I would recommend something else.
The best thing about the hotel was by far the nice staff at the reception, they kind of deserv something better. The location was also very nice right by the marina.
