We looked at reviews and even stopped at a few places but this one is by far the nice little keys type hotel that beats them all. You can tell from the upkeep outside that these owners care about small details. The pool is well maintained and they even have small grills in the courtyard. We stayed in a king...

If you want a throwback to the 50's, a cute, comfortable place in the heart of the Keys. This is the place. Competently run, clean, reasonable and a small pool to bask in. Excellent value.

Comfortable room with cool tiled floors (better than sticky carpets!) ideal for our travel plans and by far the best accommodations in our 2 week stay. Older style bathroom fittings in good working order - lovely hot shower and very clean overall

This was our 4th visit here. We have never been disappointed. VERY friendly staff; clean, colorful rooms; great location - and for all you receive as a guest, the rates are very reasonable! I always feel very comfortable here. Each time we've stayed, we have been in a different room, and all have been immaculate. For what you visit the...

Stayed one night as we hopped through the keys. This place was just fine. Clean and simple. No breakfast though if that's a must for you, otherwise its just fine.

Stayed only one night on our way to Key west. Room was comfortable and clean but basic.Ours was in the back,some other rooms more in the front seemed nicer and had patio door. Service was very friendly. Sombrero beach nearby is the nicest one in the keys.

...or they are based on value. It is inexpensive, clean and conveniently located. But we had a cockroach in the shower (UGH). I would have rather spent a few more $$ for something nicer. I definitely would NOT stay there again.

I stayed here with a friend for two nights at the end of December and was somewhat disappointed with what $355.00 bought us. As many of the other reviews pointed out, the rooms are small. Really small as in two people cannot pass each other. To their credit, management kept the premises neat and tidy -we didn't use the pool...

Older quiet hotel on main road in Marathon much cheaper than others in the area, our room was large with 2 queens, a fridge, microwave and sink area, fridge was about 3/4 size of household one which was nice. Also had a couch, but the only problem was the TV was so small you could not even use the remote...
