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...

This charming LITTLE place is what I remember from my childhood - small, but adequate. Price is right! The place is very clean, lush soft white towels, adequate lighting. The TV was new, but no sound on some stations and there was a black line down the middle of the screen. It was late when we discovered this and when...

Hubby and I are staying at Sea Dell Motel for two nights and so far our cexperience has been good. We came in without reservation and was able to get the last vacant room.

We stayed at the Sea Dell two nights as a base to see the Florida Keys. Ideally located at Marathon, much cheaper than Key West. Simple no frills rooms, a little dated but all you need and clean, tidy and helpful staff. Room only, no breakfast but lots places to eat on the road opposite. We didnt use the pool...

This motel is a little dated, but really a nice clean place. Its right near Sombrero Beach which is a great beach with good parking. There is alot of nice eating plaves around here, and its only a short drive to the 7 Mile Bridge which is great to watch a sunset from. The lady that checked us in was...

It is clean, quiet and comfortable even though it is small. I love this place, it is on the way from Miami to Key west, which is convenient.

I stayed at Sea Dell with my spouse for seven nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. Sea Dell is not for those who prefer an upscale Hilton experience - it is a modest, refurbished 1950s Florida motel with tile floors and jalousie windows, but therein lies its individual spunky charm. Visitors will be especially delighted with the very clean and comfortably...

The people at this hotel went out of their way to be helpful, finding BBQ charcoal for us to cook our fish and supplying a cooler to take the rest home. The room was very well laid out, very clean, quiet and comfortable. The rates were competitive in the Florida Keys, this hotel is only an hour from Key West....
