First of all, this is a motel. Not real fancy, but cute and it had all we needed. We stayed here height of the season for one night, and the Sea Dell was much less than any one night in Key West--and most places in Key West won't let you stay one night during season. The front desk guy was...

The picture on the web site does not do it justice. It is a bit old but it has been maintained quite well. Loved the tiled shower, abt 1930's vintage, even the old faucets; reminded me of the shower/bath I had as a child. Furniture is sturdy wicker, beds very comfortable. Kitchen is equipped with all you need, just bring...

I chose this place based upon the reviews and they were right, nice little place, easy to find, friendly front desk and very clean rooms with a microwave and a rather large fridge! (nice TV too). Had no problems. Having never been to the Keys before, I didn't know what to expect and based upon this trip, I would stay...

We booked this Motel based on Trip Advisor Reviews. My husband and I are retired and love to travel on a budget! We do not book upscale hotels and resorts, normally looking at 2.5 -3.5 star options , vacation rentals, hotels , motels, B& B`s. This trip to The Keys is part of a 3 month road trip exploring the...

My wife and I usually go to Key West for the week after Christmas. This year we could not find accomadations there. We had fiends stay at the Sea Dell on the way down to Fantasy Fest. They recomended it to us. We actually spent 4 days in Marathon and loved it! The Sea Dell staff was very friendly and...

This hotel is a great "old style" Motel, very clean, and a good stay if you don't want to pay the hotel prices of Key West. Our room was small but ok for two people who wanted a king bed. Our friends had a more spacious room with two beds, that was listed for up to 4 people. The property...

We stayed at the Sea Dell for two nights the middle of January and were very pleased with our room, which had a queen bed. It's not a Hilton, but you aren't paying for one either!! The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. It's right next to Hwy 1 and we were concerned about traffic noise but we...

This place is adorable, much like staying at a friend's house rather than a hotel. Our bed was a little lumpy, and there was a tiny lizard inside the door when we arrived, but we didn't see any other critters. We picked this place because we wanted to be centrally located to Key Largo and Key West. My advice is...

Let's get one thing straight: The Ritz, this is not. For example, the person who grouted the tile in our bathroom should have earned himself a lifetime ban from Home Depot for his 'handiwork.' That said, the tile was clean and functional, along with the rest of the room. This motel managed to hit all the right notes. Bed: supremely...

Room was nice and priced just right. Liked the fact that all rooms were non-smoking. Nice grill and picnic table and community feel. One of the only places with a heated pool.
