To start out with when we checked in the staff was AWESOME !! They greeted you with a smile and said Welcome. Though our room wasn't ready yet they let us change into our bathing suits and use the pool. Within 10 minutes they had a room for us and it was very nice. And it was cool inside too....

We stayed in Key West for a couple of nights then wanted to extend our stay and we found Blue Marlin. We walked in and the gentleman there was so friendly and held a room for us until we could walk back to our car and get our ID's and credit cards. When we got to the room, we were...

This is supposed to be a "three star" hotel. What makes a hotel five stars? For reasonable rates, I get a big quiet room, the use of a pool, coffee 24/7, a continental breakfast, an uninterrupted night's sleep, and the freedom to do any zany thing I choose to do in Key West. And it all comes with a parking...

I have only stayed at this property twice, and I will never stay anywhere else, ever again, when I am in Key West. I have stayed at most of the other new and super pricey hotels. Yes, they are nice, but you are paying more for the brand and not the experience (IMO). I stayed at the Blue Marlin for...

We stayed at the Blue Marlin motel for 4 nights (23-26 May) our room was on the ground floor and was a disabled room. The room was very large with 2 good sized double beds, microwave, TV, fridge and other extras. The bathroom was a long walk-in shower with ample space for a wheelchair user. My only negative was that...

We chose this hotel based on the price mainly (Key West can be really expensive) but were pleasantly surprised by how good it was! The pool was large and clean, the rooms huge, very nice beds, large bathroom and tv, really there is nothing bad to say!

Stayed for three nights at an affordable rate for key west. Wifi reception is excellent even by the pool. Rooms were clean and comfortable (although no room safe in our room) Would stay here again. Free continental breakfast was not worth the visit to the front desk

In hindsight, we should have done some ipad googling and prebooked a room before arriving on spec at Key West on a friday, just beofre a weekend, as many of the hotels were already boked up. We found the Marlin and enquired and was told they had rooms but "it was small". The guy at the desk wasn't kidding. If...

Just got back from a two night stay at the Blue Marlin Motel. The hotel is in a good location, just a few blocks from Duval street and the beach.

Motel rooms clean, comfortable and quiet. Good location. Round the corner from the "Southern Most Point" buoy, where everyone queues politely to wait their turn to have their photo taken next to the buoy. It's about 1 mile along Duval St to Mallory Square, so a nice walk back after watching the sun go down.
