The motel is small but cozy. Being halfway down the Keys, it is in a prime location to explore everything from Key Largo to Key West. It is family owned and operated. They are super friendly and the owner even cut me a piece of Aloe to soothe my sunburn! They kept our room super clean and took great care...

Great place to stay if you're looking for basic accommodations. The place is kept very clean. The lady that runs the Motel is super friendly. Marathon is great location with easy access to all the Florida Keys and there is quite a lot to do in Marathon also.

We needed a place to sleep to break up our one day trip to Key West. This being high season, hotel rates were expensive. We came upon this gem! Believe everything you read about this motel - quirky on the outside, immaculate on the inside. They take great pride in their place, clean, updated bathroom, fluffy white towels! We would...

We came in at 10 pm and were welcomed with open arms! The owner and her granddaughter were wonderful. They were very friendly and we had a nice conversation. The room was very clean and quiet. It had a nice kitchen. We had two beds and paid $157.50.

This place is a little out dated in décor but it is super clean and the staff is so friendly. Nicest and cleanest Motel I have ever stayed at. Family owned and operated. Room smells so clean every day! I would book here again in a heart beat. Can't beat the price either!

The reviews of this motel are true - very clean (if you read my reviews you know this is most important to me!), nice owners. So I won't repeat what others have said, I will add some details. This was my first time to the Keys, and if you need a good quiet place to crash, even with kids, this...

I have stayed here on 3 separate trips into the Keys. Doesn't get much better as road side motels go. Rooms are a bit on the small side. No frills,but always spotless,comfortable,and reasonably priced. I always feel at home here.

Myself and three friends stayed here for a fishing trip, and thoroughly enjoyed this motel and the grounds. Rooms were extremely clean. The owner and her family were the most accommodating Innkeepers I have ever stayed with, will definitely book this motel for our next trip.

“Stayed in 5 and 10. Both spotless, 5 roomier and completely updated. 10 sleeps 3 and is at the end, furthest from road. Both great choices.”

“The property is right on the highway, so the vehicular traffic slows down at night but never completely stops. Higher room numbers are further from the road.”
