Gilbert's Resort
Ranked #8 of 17 Key Largo B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 30, 2014

A biker and boater motel, old school, but a huge bar and resturant out side and always with music.
Beach, rentals etc. Better a guy place than bringing a woman. I was on a painting trip in the keys and it was the perfect location for me. Very friendly people at the desk. My bed was fine and they fixed my TV in 5 minutes.

I've been a guest of gilberts for years and I can honestly say that the quality of people staying there is something less than desirable.
They take your patio chairs, take over you porch, even if they don't know you, music blasting.
For the price of the room you can stay at a much better place...
I will NEVER stay there again or recommend it to anybody.

The place should be shut down! We were told the rooms had been renovated. They did put in new dollar store furnisher, curtains and bedding and painted. However, both beds in our room were caved in and mold was growing on the ceiling. The bathroom OMG an outhouse would of been better. The toilet didn't flush and the shower backed up with what smelled like sewer...no joke! Customer service except for one waiter there was NONE! The employees were down right rude or just plain ignorant we couldn't tell. The tiki bar is awesome but way over priced for frozen burgs and they added in they're own 20% gratuity without informing you. Oh, and the band sucked! We were told you could launch your boat but they failed to tell us that you had to drive off the property over the bridge to a sister launch. It was definitely an inconvenience and the help there couldn't speak a word of English. After launching the boat you have to drive over to another lot to park your truck another inconvenience! When we left in the morning some so called security kid tried to hit us up for a tip stating that he'd kept an eye on our boat all night for us that theft was a big problem on the property. We read the review prior to going but because they told us it was renovated we gave it a shot. Be warned and heed to the reviews..... It was a horrible experience! Definitely not a resort!!!!!

I was not expecting a 5 star hotel at the price we paid $90 however it should have been free! No joke! The room was gross the shower even grosser there literally were claw marks on the door and bugs crawling on the ceiling the images explain it all! The only nice thing I can say was the lady who booked us on the phone was nice and the tiki bar was nice too however the hotel should be closed til renovated

This place is not a resort !
Their cost is just the double of what it should cost
The place is dirty and looks a bit like a dump
The place is in bad condition and desperately needs maintenance
Gaz pumps are just near the pool and the smell is awfull

I dont recommend this place

Yea, the place is old and needs updating but it reminds us of an old time lake resort in northern Minnesota. We only had one night but had some food and drinks in the big tiki bar. Karoake was well attended, it was all good.

Room Tip: Try and get a first floor room as there are shaded patios right next to the water.
