Lovely friendly motel, excellent value for money. Continental Breakfast included (get down to the lobby early for the best selection) which we all enjoyed. Microwave & fridge in the room with complimentary microwave popcorn, mmm.
The pool was great :-)
The motel is conveniently located to walk to the beach, or down Duval Street (keep a watch out for the chickens) - enjoy the wonderful sunsets too.
We'd LOVE to come back to the Blue Marlin.

I revisited the Blue Marlin October 25, 29, 2012, during Fantasy Fest. As usual Marques, the clerk at the Motel was an absolute gentleman. My room was perfect on check-in. The room was clean and the cleaning staff were friendly. The pool was exceptional and quite enjoyable. Thank You, Tom

Stayed for two nights in clean, modern & pleasant room with shower room (as suitable for disabled).
Really pleased with the motel, breakfast could be taken back to room & no hint of any critters!
A long walk from the rowdy action, which suited us.
Do visit Fort Zachery Taylor park & stay for the sunset.

We stayed 2 nights, the room was clean and the staff was very nice. It is one block from Duval street and 2 blocks from the trolley station. The pool is great!! the area is very quiet, the AC works very well and the room has microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine and popcorn. Breakfast is between 7-9 am, a lot of people missed the breakfast (including my party), it should be until 10 am. We had coffee, 3 different type of toast, muffins, apples, etc. It is small but it is enough. It tastes good and it is fresh. We will definitely come back and I already recommended this hotel to my friends!!

Came to Key West to get married and stayed here for 4 nights in Oct. 2012 and fell in love with this motel. Rooms have been updated, very clean and staff was very nice and helpful.

5 min walk to Duval St. and 5 min walk to beach.

Pool area is large and pool was very clean. Property itself was very clean and maintained.

After 4 nights, we cont our honeymoon to Orlando and then on to Indian Shores in the Tampa Bay area. My husband and I both agree'd we should have stayed put in Key West at the Blue Marlin.

We will definitely come back to the Blue Marlin to celebrate our upcoming anniversary's.

Room Tip: Every room I was in (there were family members in other rooms), were all clean and in good repair. Any room you get will be a good room! A/C's all worked good too.
