I almost don't have words for how terribly unkempt this place is. To quote part of their policy ' A service fee of $12.00 plus tax will be charged daily and includes use of beach towels, wireless internet, parking and use of dvd movies from office. No refunds because of our small size....' There were no beach towels provided, the...

We stayed 2 nights in February. Coming back from Key West, not having been able to find any room there. That was after 20th something places in our way back displayed the NO VACANCY sign. We would have accepted anything. To our surprise, our room was directly on the sandy beach, nice and comfortable, including wifi! Ideal for a day...

Stayed 2/16. Right on route 1. This older hotel is belongs to a complex of 3 small hotels all managed by a single small office. The guy who checked us in was extraordinarily helpful. We looked at the rooms before signing up for them which was helpful in allowing us to select two adjoining second floor rooms resulting in a...

I was charged an extra fee at check in that was not stated on my online booking, I believe it was somewhere around $10 a night, but since we were staying 4 nights it was an extra $40 - kind of stinks to lose out...

My wife and I spent a full week recently at the Yellowtail. We made the trip from Colorado specifically to visit Ft. Jefferson on the Dry Tortugas but didn't want to deal with the crowds on Key West. Yellowtail and Marathon were exactly what we wanted - quiet, laid back, easy going. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed...

Overall the hotel/inn as nice. They upgraded our room at no extra cost to a two bedroom in place of a one bedroom with two futons. We had a two bed room with kitchen and fantastic view of the ocean from the deck. The apt could use a new futon but other wise it was very nice and clean. There...

We stayed 1 night (Jan 2, 2016) in the efficiency and we did not want to leave. Waterfront view, the stars looked amazing! Very romantic place. They also have larger rooms for families. The service was excellent. We had no reservation but Lori took care of us. Very nice lady. I recommend this place hands down. It's economical and even...
