We enjoyed the Ranch House Motel in Marathon. All the reviews said "friendly and clean" which is all we really needed. And indeed it was as all the reviews said. Diana is very nice, and made friends with our 8 yr old son instantly. She gave us good tips on things to see. Location is exactly in the middle of the Florida Keys. I would stay there again. It is sort of a 60's style motor inn, and very cute and well maintained.

We found Diane to be quite charming and very welcoming. She offered us a slice of her homemade key lime pie, which was great. The motel is nothing fancy but it is very clean and the bed was comfortable. It was surprisingly quiet being so close to the road. We were torn between staying here or at the Tropical Cottages up the road but Diane called us back first and I'm glad we got to meet her. Diane was also very helpful with recommendations for dining and sightseeing. I would stay here again and maybe this time ask Diane if she'd take us lobster diving with her.

Stayed at the Ranch House in November 2012. The owner was incredibly helpful and friendly. Offered us a cold beverage upon our arrival, apologized for not having any homemade pie left to share with us! :) Rooms are simple, but very clean. Only place I have ever stayed where the sheets smelled fabulous! Sounds crazy, right? I loved it, though! I took it as sign that they were super clean! :) Not far from the Turtle Hospital and all things Marathon.

Would definitely stay again!

:-) :-) call in advance to make reservations. Dian has two rooms with full kitchens. Dian will give you directions to all the places found in the pictures. Sombrero Beach is only 2 miles away, they have showers picnic tables and charcoal grills. For $45 you can go on a 4 hour fishing trip to the reefs on the Marathon Lady. $5 more rents you a rod and real, make reservation for the stern ahead of time at no extra costs.

Room tip: Room #11 is the biggest with a kitchen

This is a beautiful little Motel. The owner was vet helpful and told us lots of information about the local area. Our room was small but clean and tidy. Free WI-FI is available but unfortunately when my wife and I stayed it was broken which was a shame. If you plan to stay in Marathon look not further than this Motel.
