We had a wonderful stay at the Drop Anchor! The owner has kept the charm of old florida while updating and maintaining this beautiful property. My partner Mark and I had a 3 night stay in unit #9 which has a beautiful ocean view from the balcony. The room was clean, large and well appointed with everything you need for...

I booked this when we were flying down to Miami and driving to Key West. Since I normally fly into Key West and have taken the drive before, I wanted to make sure that I stayed overnight somewhere in between Miami and Key West and we chose the Drop Anchor Resort. We checked in a little late because we were...

Our room #9 was spacious and comfortable. The bed was extremely comfortable. The full kitchen was very useful. The balcony was perfect for breakfast and relaxing any time of day. The staff members are friendly and helpful. Visit the geological park across the street. This is a great choice; enjoy it!

First of all, I know that the management will respond to this and claim I am not being truthful, but this was perhaps one of the most disappointing hotels on our trip, simply due to customer service. We felt let down as major tree works were taking place during our one night stay, and speaking to other guests the work...

If you are looking for something like the Marriott or Hyatt this is not the place for you. If you like the craziness of a lot of people and the party life, this is not the place for you.

Stayed here with our 15 month old in the trailer. Absolutely loved it. Trailer itself is spacious, clean with everything you could possibly need. Great deck outside overlooking the sea. Whole resort is spotlessly clean and has a lovely old school vibe where nothing is too much trouble. Pool and 'beach' area are great for both adults and children. Would...

This resort is an older resort. However, rooms are very spacious and very clean. The owner is a very kind person. The grounds and pool area are well kept. No beach area, but it is a nice view. We enjoyed staying here, and would stay again. No complaints
