Motel is clean, nice room, bath, shower, fridge, coffee and tea. Outside stone tables to sit and relax. Naer sombrero beach. One hour drive to key west. Very nice people. Restaurants in the neighbourhood.

An unremarkable stay at a throwback motel. Nothing special but nothing really wrong with it either.Marathon Key is a fun spot either as a stopping off spot or a destination.A newfound gem was the theatre directly across the street.Old standbys, Sparky, Wooden Spoon and Sombrero Beach,not to be missed.

If you are looking for somewhere simple with a basic room to stay this is a great little place. The room was really clean, powerful shower, extremely fast WiFi and friendly service. Its a definite recommended stop if you are on a budget, or want to save and splash out at Key West.

STAY AWAY unless you want bed bugs! They wouldn't even admit it and it's pretty clear the numerous welts on my partners back were bed bug bites. We even showed the front desk person and because there were no "blood spots" in the bed she blew it off and claimed it couldn't be bed bugs. BS. I'm appalled they didn't...

After staying for four days without incident, you approached the desk clerk the morning of check out with some sort of bites. The room you occupied was torn apart and absolutely no evidence of any bed bugs was found. I am sorry that you experienced some sort of insect bites during your stay in the keys, but we can assure...

Lovely room - two double beds, kitchette and bathroom - and pool. Helpful and friendly staff who gave us lots of information about local attractions and places to visit. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed over for 1 night to break the journey down to Key West. We had arrived several hours earlier than check-in so we thought we would take a chance and see if our room would be ready. No problem so that was a good start. The lady who checked us in was very friendly and gave us local information...

i stayed here back in march for a weekend getaway with my wife. We had stayed here previously and it was reasonably priced and was clean and had the key west vibe so we decided to re-visit. it is not near key west, but it isnt an unreasonably long drive from key west and you save several hundred per night....

No complaints! We used it as our home base for our fishing and diving trip and couldn't have been happier. Real central location on marathon, clean rooms, real friendly staff, and a good all around place to stay. Will be using this as our rental place every year.

We found this place when we went on memorial weekend. The price is great and the stay was great. You can walk to several places nearby and there is a Publix grocery store just around the corner. We have stayed several times and its always super clean and enjoyable.
