Very small very old motel style. The layout is decent, the pool just alright. The deck outside is nice and the view and location is what make this hotel.
The room was decently clean, but seems like it could have been cleaner. Many problems with painting and decor in the room. It looks like a child painted the walls...no masking done at all. Also lots of holes and cracks in the walls that needed attending to.
There was an envelope on the counter when we walked in from the housekeeper looking for a tip. I've never seen a housekeeping tip envelope left for a guest in a room to see when they check in. We didn't leave any money because the room was not that clean anyway. There was a sticky substance on the counter which looks like it was from the last people, the beds were dingy and linens looked like they had been used since the 70s. There were small orange dots on the white sheets given to us...I'm hoping these were just rust stains from the shelves they place linens on after cleaning.
This place is not for people who are looking to splurge or find top quality and service. If you are looking for a no frills type place, bed to sleep on during the night in the keys, in a somewhat convenient location to the upper and lower keys, then you should stay here.
