Creekside Inn Islamorada
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Tavernier
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This motel has had many improvements over the past couple years since the new owners took over. I have been staying here several times a year. There has been a genuine attempt to make the rooms more comfortable and accommodating to the traveler. It's been very nice to have the addition of new beds, furniture, wall fixtures and TV. Having free Wifi is unusual and I use it extensively. The opaque windows are nice so you can have sunlight without sacrificing privacy. The staff is very friendly and I always enjoy having the occasional conversation during the course of my stay.

Room Tip: Efficiencies rooms are generally larger.

We decided to "wing it" thru the Keys and didn't have a place to stay, or any idea what was open. It was a busy weekend for traveling and we saw the vacancy and turned in. We were lucky to get the last room. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and the room was large and clean. Nothing fancy but very comfortable.

We booked this on line and a bit blind as we were travelling around Florida and were not sure about the hotel,but as soon as we arrived we were put at ease. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean and well equipped.The whole experience here has been great and would not hesitate to book here again if we are in the Keys again.The view from our door over the water and across the creek are beautiful in the morning and especially at sunset.
can not find anything negative about this hotel.

Took a guy's long weekend with the boat to Creekside. Rented two efficiencies for three nights and our over experience couldn't have been better. Before this management took over,years ago this place was a rowdy dump.
The management and onsite receptionist could not have been nicer and more helpful. It's nice to stay at hotel where the owner takes an active interest in your stay.

Rooms were nice, clean and equipped for cooking. Having your boat 10 feet from your room is what staying in the Keys is all about.

Will be taking my family next trip. For the price and service, this is a great deal!

Room Tip: If you don't care for Marriott / Hilton large hotels like me and have a boat. This is the place...

First off you need to know that this is Not a 5 star motel. BUT, it is a nice! Lets talk first that they are improving it as we speak. I was not sure when I made the reservation to stay a night. But after the night's stay we wanted to come back. As a matter of fact I cancelled out a night at another hotel and stayed here instead the next couple of days. The room is clean and with the white ceramic tile on the floor it has a little echo to it. The beds were very nice and comfy. The bathroom is nice and clean with all tile.. I personally loved the shower..Now a great plus is you can walk out the back side of the room onto a concrete slab the extends the length of the motel. There is a water way there. If you had a boat you could tie it up there. But the greatest thing was I sat out there at night and you talk about peaceful...I sat out there of hours and didn't hear a sound except of the water moving slowly. As a matter of fact it was very quite there. Loved it!
Would I go back? You betcha! I give it a thumbs up!.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10. It's a little bigger then most..

We arrived late at night after the office was closed, they had placed a lockbox on our room door and a note on the front door to call them. The owner/manager came down to check on us and make sure we arrived and settled in alright. The establishment was run down and the new owners are working to renovate the entire place--they are certainly doing an amazing job. The view from the back of the creek is phenomenal at night with the lights on the water. Manatees are abundant in the water directly behind the hotel. Would highly recommend this place to anyone passing through the area.

My family and I stayed a couple of nights. We visit the Keys quite often and this is one of the nicest and cleanest hotels that we have ever stayed in. It is comfortably equipped for a quick one-night stop or even a longer stay vacay. The room we had included a microwave and a nicely sized fridge/freezer combo and the shower was even big enough for the whole family with plenty of hot water. Road noise at night (or even early morning) was never an issue as all we heard while we drifted off to sleep was the cooling hum of the AC. (I actually thought it was a rather quiet location.) There is a full-service marina right across the street, which is where we launched our boat from so that was quite convenient. The staff at the hotel was very nice and friendly and always provided service with a smile. My daughter loved the pool area, which is secluded and adorned with a rock waterfall. It was definitely worth every penny and we would not hesitate staying there again in the future, especially considering that most hotels we have stayed in throughout the Keys barely match up. Thanks guys! We'll be back!
