I would not label this dump a "resort." When I called to make a reservation they said they only have the "garden view" which was actually the "highway view." The paint was pealing off of the walls along with the wallpaper, it was dirty, and was a breeding ground for very loud/fat/toothless/drunk families who just floated in from "south of Key West." The photo on the website must have been taken somewhere else because none of the rooms looked that nice.The only reason for the 1 star is that the front desk person was pleasant. I would call this a very cheap motel at best. There are plenty of quaint places to stay in the keys. This is not one of them.
With regard to the Fish N' Fun boat rental at their marina, stay away! They are the rudest people I have every met and they will nickel and dime you at the end of your boat ride. It really takes away from the vacation.
A cute place to stay is The Breezy Palms in Islamorada and if you want to rent a boat consider Bud N' Mary's.
