I'm not sure which was worst, the disgusting room we stayed in or the rude woman that worked the front. I can't believe this place is even allowed to be open. Worst experience ever. We checked out early. Stains on the covers, holes in the shower, light bulbs not working, mosquitoes in the room, etc. When we went to speak...

The room is outdated and small, but clean. Fridge available. No coffee or water provided at front desk. Friendly lady at check-in. Gave us good trips for dinner and breakfast. Nice pool with view over the water. Good stay.

This is our favorite place to stay. Little older motel, but very clean inside and out. Nice pool, with nice waterfront view. Owners are very nice people. Can't wait to make our next trip to Islamorada. Travel date does not go to 2015, that is the last time we got to make the trip. Hoping to make it back this...

My husband and I met up with friends at the motel and stayed for one night. The reception is a tiny room where you can get coffee in the morning but they don't open until 8.30am! Our room was on the ground level and we looked at some bushes outside of our window. The room was very dark and it...
