Stayed on a Saturday night Labor day weekend on our way to Key West, Nice little motel with a clean pool and VERY clean room. Not a single bug or ant to be seen which was extra important to my wife and I. Stayed in a nice sized king room next to the office and pool, quiet other than when the neighbors shut their door. The pool is in front and blocked from US 1 by bushes and plants, but not too much road noise. Fridge, TV, and coffee maker in room. Across from breakfast joint and real close to stores and Sombrero beach rd.

Room Tip: King rooms are on the ends of bldgs. Reservations are a good idea, but not required.

We stayed at the Sea Dell for 3 night recently (room 15) and thought the place was great. Very clean quiet room with a comfortable king bed and a flat screen TV. There's a nice pool with plenty of chairs and a few tables with unbrellas. The lady we spoke with, Sue, to make our reservations couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. When we arrived she also helped us narrow down the restaurants choices, of which there are many. It's not a fancy expensive motel, but it's a great value for the Keys. There's lots to do and see in the area which make's this a convenient location to stay. We'll be back!!!

We chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and the price. We were very happy with our choice once we arrived. The motel is small, but the location was easy to find and our room was just right. The staff was very helpful and gave us a list of area restaurants and a map showing all the locations. The pool was very nice and refreshing and they provide extra pool towels. Our room was on the small side but it was very clean and nicely appointed. We were very satisfied and will stay here again if ever in the Keys again.

This was a great motel. We had accidentally not booked a night at our planned hotel in Marathon and Gary was great at accommodating us. He set us with a room and dinner plans. Completely unexpected but a great experience. The room was very clean and well maintained. The check out was easy. There are grills and tables outside of the rooms if needed. The pool looked really nice even though we didn't use it. We were even given a restaurant guide with pricing information near the motel. I couldn't have asked for more.

First, we were surprised how nice the lady at the reception was. She waited for us until 9 p.m. and gave us some very valuable (and objective) insider-tips as to the nearby restaurants and attractions. The room we were directed to was rather small, but comfortable. The noisy air conditioning got a bit on our nerves - could be modernized maybe? - but all in all, we very much liked the place. It was just far enogh from Miami to get in one day and not far from Key West to visit and enjoy until the evening. Highly recommended - don't expect any luxury though.

My wife, daughter and granddaughter just spent 4 nights in Marathon at this hotel. It was by far one of the nicest small non-chain motels we have ever stayed at. The room was clean and maintained daily, quiet and centrally located to all the attractions. Hope to go to Marathon again for diving and would stay here again and highly recommend to all.
