located in a convenient location close to old town and all sites, yet quiet. Our room was spacious and clean. Breakfast a bit skimpy but adequate. Personnel very helpful. We would definately stay here again!

Our room was spacious, airy and light. The decor just seemed perfect for Key West. It was clean and had all the amenities. The motel is close to the ocean in one direction and within walking distance to all the action on Duval Street. The laundry station is clean and well lit. I used it twice on our stay and...

Stayed for 2 nights in January, probably the coldest 2 in Key West this year. Room was basic but clean. Breakfast incl. Served in reception, very basic and had to be taken to room. Nice clean pool w sunbeds. At 210 per night plus taxes this was not a bargain. 13 blocks from the citycenter, but just a short walk...

I was looking for something special in Key West and the Blue Marlin delivered - it's not a cutesy gingerbread B&B (where half the rooms are furnished with IKEA wicker anyway) but as far as I'm concerned, it's just as valid a slice of American history. It's possibly the best located motel with free onsite parking which is great as...

Great location...one block off Duval Street. Nice pool, even though many say its horrible since its in the middle of parking lot, but that makes it all the more interesting to people watch! Front desk people were extremely nice and had a nice complimentary breakfast in the morning. Nothing to do at the hotel in the evening, but you're in...

Ok, That place was my second choice but I do not regret! The Blue Marlin is a Motel but location is everything! The rooms are big and clean and safe and they have AC and microwave and coffee facilities. There is a pool as well . breakfast sucks ( coffee, juice and bread + fruit) but there are restaurants all...

The Blue Marlin is a great deal for how inexpensive it is! It's updated and clean with a great pool and plenty of parking. The location is perfect, close enough to walk to everything, but far enough away that it's quiet at night. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone!
