We loved this hotel! It certainly wasn't luxurious, but the Blue Marlin was exactly what we needed. It's located just off the quieter end of Duval, with very easy access to the "beach" and the Southernmost point. There's a handy bike rental place and a...More

This motel was perfect for us. We did not rent a car while we were in Key West so we wanted a place that was convenient for walking to everything. We were across the street from the public bus. How convenient! There was a continental...More

We stayed here just for one nights while we were exploring Key West. It was a good choice. Very close to Duval Street and the Southernmost point of the continental US. It was quiet and relaxing. The room was quite large, clean and the beds...More

Thank you! We offer a minimum continental breakfast for free just to get your day started. Our space is limited so we there is not room for much more. We are happy that you had a good time in Key West!

We specifically asked the desk clerk "is your pool heated?" Desk clerk replied, "yes, it is." Apparently, I didn't phrase the question properly because the pool was ice cold! I was already in a bad mood thanks to sleep deprivation after spending the previous night...More

Sorry we failed to meet your expectations. The clerk you spoke to about the pool was simply trying to answer your questions - smiling is what she does and by no means was she trying to be deceptive. The heater was on but perhaps it...More

Yes it is. It's away from the main chaos on the other end of Duval. Pool is nice and breakfast provided. Basic motel but clean and comfortable. Beach close by.
