We stayed one night. Reasonable price for a decent value. The cottages are dated, and a bit worn. However, they are clean and comfortable. The grounds are nice, and we really enjoyed the hammocks and the tiki hut. All in all a pleasant stay for a reasonable price in a place where you could spend more for less.

It is a bit weird thinking that Tropical Cottages would be situated in the middle of the busiest stretch of highway right behind a busy bank (it really was awkward). The kitchenette was ok, although I wish there was something to cook in the cottage(other than a microwave) or a grill right outside. They lacked items to scrub dishes with....

When we travel, my daughter and I like to get a feel for the essence of an area. Tropical Cottages in Marathon FL gave us just that! The cottages could easily be described as "beach comber shacks" and were clean, comfortable, and ... vintage. We were assigned cottage #6, which contained AC, microwave, fridge, coffee pot, toaster, dishes, and towels....

The area is quiet and near to the beaches . I like the little area outside the rooms where you could sit and...

We stayed one night in Cottage #4. It was very clean and cute. As everyone said, you park your car right next to the cottage so that was very convenient. The bed was comfortable and the service was great. We would definitely go back..!!

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in Cottage #8, which has a king-sized bed and outdoor shower. We arrived much earlier than the standard check-in time, but our cottage was ready and we were allowed to check-in. The service and hospitality at Tropical Cottages was exceptional throughout our stay. Truly nice people who strive to keep you happy while...

We arrived and met no one but there was a welcoming note for us so we did not have to wait to get into our cottage.Our room was clean and by our surprise had a bathroom outside. Was a little hesitant about it at first until we walked around it and felt the cool (ya right moist) night air. We...

The cottages are small, but cute and sufficient for a couple. We arrived late but there was no problem! You can park your vehicule right by your cottage and the location is very quiet. It's nothing special really, you have to take the car to the beach and restaurants, but it's a good place to stop for a quiet resting...

We stayed at Tropical Cottages for 1 night to break up the drive back from Key West to Ft. Lauderdale. Check-in was simple & we parked right next to the door of the cottage. The grounds seem nicely kept. The cottage that we stayed in was very basic, simple and clean. There was a lovely 4-poster, king-sized bed, a futon...
