This place is not flashy, but it doesn't need to be! You are in paradise, this is a good and clean place to rest your head and keep your stuff safe. The staff was always helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great!

We will definitely be back to stay! Everyone was so friendly, that we felt like family. Everything you need is right there, with tons to do, and great food, that is very reasonably priced. The room was very clean, and accommodating, We will highly recommend to all our family and friends. Can't wait to go back!

we arrived a bit early around 2:30 PM. Our room was ready and we found it to be super clean. The entire staff ( from Chris the mgr to the house cleaning staff and bar tender ) went out of their way to ask if we needed anything. The other members of our group arrived and we spent an enjoyable...

Place was funky, bedspread and sheet had stains resembling blood and there was another stain on sheet from someone's exciting time before our stay. Mattresses are so old that you roll into each other in the middle. Free breakfast...ha, it doesn't start until 9 am and we were long gone! Only saving grace was the hot shower

I stumbled upon this quaint place because I had a snorkeling trip out of their marina the following day. Unfortunately, a friend had already booked me a hotel elsewhere, or I would have happily stayed here. From the moment I walked into the restaurant/bar, every staff member was SO friendly, I felt like family. I was by myself on this...

The GM, Housekeeping staff, and bar/restaurant staff treated us with extreme respect, making us feel as if we were visiting a functional family. When asked for extras -- like an ironing board and iron (to get packed clothes ready for the wedding) or a hairdryer, they went out of their way to provide them. The sole complaint we had was...

No one around when we arrived,but friendly when we did find someone. On check in we had to pay extra for breakfast which was advertised as included on booking. However on the morning there was no one around at the breakfast area . On finally locating someone they just said that the cook hadn't turned up. No attempt was made...

Please do not sign any contract with this hotel until you've looked around at other ones in the area! We went down to fish, the weather was bad and so after 1 night we wanted to go see something else and do something, but they would not let us out of the other 2 days! They say breakfast is included...

This hotel is great if you want a true Keys experience! The rooms are right on the marina and the staff makes you feel like family. Dawn in the office was extremely helpful and Skip the maintenance man made sure we had anything we needed. My family really enjoyed our stay here and we can't wait to go back again!

Thank Mary S
