We Loved this place. Very cute, met our needs and budget. We stayed here and drove to key west for the day. Right up the street is a great place to watch the sun set. Great places to eat in each direction just a couple miles up the road.

We stayed in the upper ocean front with very nice private patio ,French doors and adorable kitchen with large bedroom and perfect living room. We are customers for life because the place is beautiful and the staff are the greatest . Lovely ! The parrots are beautiful but snobby to much ocean front living for them I guess their spoiled.

The room was quite big. Beds were pretty comfortable. Nice large table and kitchen area. My only negative was the bathroom. It smelled like a urinal. And the toilet is positioned so you are sitting under the sink while on the toilet. Weird setup of the bathroom. The pool was nice but it was freezing! It was 80 degrees but...

Sands of Islamorada has everything you need from the hot tub, pool, beach, kayaks, Hammock, grills, beach towels, parrots and more. You can fish right off their pier or converse with their parrots. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They are always smiling. I just love it here!

Our first time at this small boutique hotel having previously stayed at Pines & Palms a few yards away. This is just as nice with good size rooms, kept clean daily and a tidy dock and pool area. It's a short walk to restaurants and good value. We would return.

It is an older, well kept motel. The staff were awesome. When first arrived, there was only one luggage holder, so just put both suitcases on floor. The next day, on return to room, they had both suitcases up on holders and the room was very clean! We stayed here 2 days, in route to Key West. Great price and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An awesome, intimate escape right in the center of the Keys. All of our rooms have recently been refreshed from top to bottom. For a pet & people friendly tropical retreat...This is the spot. This is the kind of place Jimmy Buffett sings about. We are very Keysee and very clean! A sparkling pool and hot-tub with a view of the beach, boat launch and pier, await you. Our rooms and efficiencies can accomodate from 1 to 6 people very comfortably. ... more   less
