“Great for what we were looking for...”
Reviewed March 8, 2005

We stayed in our boat at the marina in a transient slip for about 5 days, and found the experience very pleasant.
Our slip included all of the amenities required, and the bathrooms were nice because we had our own keys, and there were no lines.
Other permanent residents in marina were nice, and respectful of us.
(although there was an incident where two marina residents got into an argument with eachother... but more entertaining than annoying... ha ha).
Worth the money.
We are considering staying again this year.

Stayed at Blackfin several days while on a weeklong break ... made reservations in advance and expected oceanfront but found it to be an old style concrete block strip motel probably built in the 50/60's. There is a marina and small peninsula which juts into the Gulf but is approx. the equivalent of a block or so away from the rooms. There is a small pool, no beach area. There were only 2-3 other people staying there the entire time we were there ... I can see why! For $90/day we could do better.

The room was antiquated ... the small bathroom had harvest gold 50's/60's style fixtures and ceramic tile. Mold in the bath and was actually fuzzy around window (in shower). Did have new curtains and bedspread, but the oldstyle brown woodgrain panelling on the walls appeared to have been wet previously and was bulging and warped with pieces of the molding missing. Furniture also appeared to have been wet and warped. There was a small refrigerator and sofa. Carpet was dirty and boxspring had waterstains all along the side ... was afraid to check out the mattress for fear of what we might find on it! Bedding and towels were clean, however.

Not a single room in the complex appeared to have a view of anything other than another row of motel rooms. There was a sliding glass door which backed up to a corridor in between the row of concrete block motel rooms ~ maybe 15 ft. between them with a roof over. Plastic chairs on the sidewalk outside the room by the parking lot. The grounds are well kept, with various pleasant outdoor sitting areas both between the office and the rooms, by the pool, and at the water; there is a small coin laundry for guest use. There is no one available in the office between 10 pm and 8 am, therefore no wakeup call possible. No breakfast offered, but there are various restaurants nearby.
