Truly proves you get what you pay for! This place was clean, rooms were as nice as any upscale hotel. Bed was very comfortable. Will definitely return next time we need a hotel on the way to Key West.

Advertised a Beach but there was no swimming area. Staff could have been more accommodating with very little effort on their part but chose not to be. Pool was nice and large but 'let go'. Deck needs repair in many places. Tiki hut was never open.

We stayed at the motel for several nights in April, and loved it and the location. The room was clean and apparently updated recently, and the bed was comfortable. The resort has a nice pool area, and the staff was very nice. The grounds had been a little run down, but they had already begun work on improving the landscape....

Rooms have just been redone and very nice. Must ask and pay extra for view room - but worth it. Marathon is the start of the seven mile bridge and within an hour of KeyWest.You can see most Everything in KeyWest in a day.
