We have stayed here before, have made many friends here and will come back soon!! They are clean, quiet, cozy, and right on the water. You can literally fish from your room if so inclined! We won't ever stay anywhere else. The on site managers Laura and Phil were nice, accommodating, and informative too. Phil knows the fishing rules and also will talk to you about his favorite places to fish and tips for your adventure. They keep the grounds clean and very well groomed. The pool is pristine, the rooms are immaculate. I can't really believe that people would be able to rate this place as a one star and be disappointed!! I guess they were expecting the Marriott?? The one thing that makes this place my favorite is the whole retro aspect. This motel is straight out of a 1950's vacation movie. But that's the entire appeal! Who cares if the towels are cheap? I'm telling you, if you know anything about the keys and it's retro quaintness then you will be pleased with this place too. The entire appeal is that it is NOT a commercial chain motel with cookie cutter rooms and an expensive concierge. You can fish off the dock, you can go eat at Herbies, you can drive to Big Pine, fish from bridges, and enjoy a quiet getaway. There is nothing better than a young couple that takes pride in their motel and a nice quiet place to cook up your catch. They have grills there, a coke machine, table, a place to clean your catch. What's not to love?
