This was a very nice hotel and property right on the canal; however, it had very thin walls for such a new place. We were awake all night due to the music blasting from the room above us. Breakfast was great and everything was very clean. However, the water pressure was weak in the shower. Overall, good for the area.

We stayed in this hotel last week and I would definitely recommend! My husband & I were traveling with our 12 yr old & 8 yr old. The staff was exceptionally courteous & the room was one of the cleanest I have ever seen (I am VERY picky about cleanliness!). We had a room on the 3rd floor, it was quiet and the beds were comfortable. The pool was also very nice (and clean!) and we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. A great value & a great stay!

Beautiful, new hotel. Our room was well-appointed, super clean an comfy. Great service ... we had a minor plumbing problem that we reported to the front desk and within 10 minutes someone from maintenance was here and the problem fixed.

We originally reserved a weekend here because of the location on Marathon Key, just before the 7 mile bridge. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the aesthetics of the hotel, the pool area, and the ocean inlet. Very nice. The rooms were like most all newer Holiday Inns, with very comfy beds and pillows, flat screen tv, well appointed, and very clean. Reading reviews prior to reserving, I read about the noise from other rooms, so we requested an upstairs room, and we were not disturbed by any noises, even though the hotel was booked full. We will stay there again. Another plus is that it is right across the street from the Island Fish Company, arguably the best restaurant in the Keys.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the pool have a beautiful backdrop of the ocean inlet. $15 extra, but worth it...

We didn't have reservations the first night we got into the Keys so we just stopped here. Super friendly front desk at check in and walking distance to the Island Fish Co where we planned to eat dinner that night so the decision was made. Usually we don't like to stay in chain places while we are in the Keys, but we made an exception this time. Had a few happy hour cocktails in the tiki bar and watched the boats come in which was nice. Breakfast staff the next morning was really nice too, we were all watching coverage on Hurricane Isaac. Food was good for a continental breakfast. Overall a great start to our Keys vacation!

I loved this hotel from the moment we enter it. Super friendly staff. Our room was beautiful with a gorgeous water view. The room was the cleanest I have ever seen. The bed is super comfy. I would give it a 5 star if it wasn't for fact that the walls are paper thin and you hear the slightest of noise. But overall it is a gorgeous and super friendy and clean hotel.

Room Tip: make sure you get a room with water view on the third level. We stayed in room 349 and had a gorgeou...

This hotel was great for a short stay in the Keys. We stayed because it's dog friendly. I've always liked Holiday Inn Express and this one seems to be pretty new. We liked it but the only thing was we could hear every single word of our (young bickering) neighbor's conversations. I assume they could hear ours. Same goes for the TV on both neighboring rooms. Other than that, everything was great. :)
