Very basic, but clean and comfortable. Old-fashioned feel. Very close to the Lorelei cabana bar and restaurant. My advice: spend the day in Key West and stay here afterward, getting a late dinner and drinks at the Lorelei. We stayed in August, so the price was a very low $45, but I'm sure it's also a great deal in season...

True bargain in the Keys and a fantastic location. We stayed at the Blue Fin Inn side of the hotel. Within walking, or short driving, distance of all our favorite places. Cleaning staff needs to be trained!! Just outside our door there were two hair ties, a dirty cup and cigarettes. Opened the door to see trash on the floor,...

Four days here were nice! Read prior reviews saying that motel looked "very 1970s", which was very true, but dated decor was forgotten given price and room amenities. Kitchenette room was spacious, clean, and comfy. Kitchen area very nice: full fridge/freezer, microwave, range and stove, etc. The price was ridiculously lower than other places in the area, initially making us...

A weeks' stay and absolutely nothing to complain about. Clean, comfortable rooms, big kitchen and relatively large bath. Nothing fancy at all, but a great bargain and the nicest two owners you could possibly meet. I stayed in the Blue Fin side, so can't comment on the rooms on the Key Lantern side (assume they are different?). Room was cleaned...

Lovely basic old style motel. Friendly and helpful staff. Amazing value for money and the beds were surprisingly comfy. Room equipped with tv, large fridge, microwave and AC. Have to recommend eating at Lazy Days which is a 5 min drive south from the motel. It was the nicest, tastiest, value for money restaurant we have ever had the pleasure...

Nice basic motel on the main highway going through the Florida Keys. Rooms are clean, with TV, refrigerator, AC, etc. No pool, but the ocean is walking distance. If you just need a comfortable place to rest your head for the night at a good price, I would recommend.

It's no frills, but it's everything you need - for literally about half the price everything else was asking for. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are large, climate controlled, and have a kitchen and fridge. The place is a little old, but it was better quality than the joint we paid 50.00 MORE for the night we...

I've stayed at this "Mom & Pop" motel several times and have never been disappointed. You can't beat the price! Clean and comfortable rooms, delightful hosts, and great location...all at a bargain price in today's economy. You just can't beat that combination! Can't imagine staying anywhere else when I go to Islamorada!
