After staying at Key West for 4 nights we headed back up the Keys. We had booked this motel after reading the positive tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We stayed in room 17 which is the RV. It had all the amenitites we needed and was in a very good location .

We ended up in a trailer on the property which was pretty cool. We had our own kitchen,living room, bedroom etc, plus a deck overlooking the beach out to the ocean. The weather wasn't the best so didn't get to enjoy all the amenities but neat and weel kept.

Happy thanksgiving!! There is a ramp and a fishing pier that is long enough for a 24’ boat but you might want to contact the owner - nice guy-to see how long you can tie up- fishing charters leave from there in small bay boats so there might be not enough pier for everyone. There is a marina a very short distance away. They might have slip rentals? Sounds like a great trip!!
