“A total surprise”
Reviewed April 2, 2009

A friend told us about this place to stop on my first trip to Key West. Pulling into the parking lot it looked like a million other little bitty motels along the road. When we went to check in at where we thought the reception area should be there was a sign telling us to register with the bartender and a little hand pointing the way. The bar was great and the staff incredible. When our friends showed up they took us out back and we were amazed. Nice pool, big tiki bar, and right on the water. The food was good too! We had such a good time that we cut the trip to Key West short so we could stay here for a couple more days befroe returning home. What a blast!!!

Stopped for a night on the way to Key West with 5 couples, saw the Ocean view on the web and looked like our kind of place. We were right , only 7 rooms and we had 6 of them, all were immaculate, some 1 bed some 2, nice patio and walkway to pool, Tiki bar and inside bar with good bar food and great atmosphere, staff and local patrons were all friendly, ran into Ted "the stork" Hendricks, Hall of Famer from the Oakland Raiders, who stopped by for a cocktail at night. Live music the night we stayed. Sandy barbacue area available with grill, nice nature trail to the bay. Had so much fun that we stopped on the way back to Lauderdale just to say hi and thanks. We booked all seven rooms for 5 days next year and are vacationing there the whole time.

Stayed 1 night on our way to Key West. This was a perfect choice to spend some time in the Keys. The room was very clean and nice. All rooms had a private sitting area outside and a very nice private sandy walk to the pool. The pool was very nice. Fun sports bar and good food. The prices were the best for the rooms and food for our six nights in the keys. I met Gary and his wife and we talked some football and joked around alot. This was one of our best times in the keys. We will stay longer next time! Make this one of your stops, you will have a good time!

  • Liked — Clean, fun people, prices
