We checked into Tropical Cottages number three yesterday June 12 and were informed by the desk at time of checkin that towels and wash clothes were not in the unit but would be dropped off within a short period of time. We found the accomodations satisfactory and what we expected and waited till after dinner some 4 hours later and...

Very pleasant, no frills, off the beaten track - or at least it felt that way, even though it was just off the main Overseas Highway and we were there Memorial Day weekend. Quiet, Marathon location, basically in the middle of the Keys. Perfect location to enjoy a day jaunt to BUSY Key West and come back for a relaxed...

Calm and restful. It is pleasantly attending. Quaint and quiet... of the main road. Don't miss Pidgeon Key... just down the road and a short boat-trip away. Plenty of good places to eat and/or shop for food in the vicinity.

We are veteran travelers - and we know what a major chain hotel offers. We knew when we reserved a cottage at Tropical Cottages that we were NOT reserving a room at the Marriott. But we feel compelled to provide a balanced review of our experience there. First - for those who feel Tropical Cottages does not offer good value:...

This was our first trip to the keys in about 20 years. We were so very pleaed to have stayed at these private little cottages. We stayed in cottage #4, it was clean and neat. The bed was super comfortable and roomy. Liked the fact that our cottage came with a kitchenette that included a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker and...

We booked this room for our anniversary based on the pictures and the reviews. While I thought they would be cute cottages for a good deal we were not very happy with the room. If you book a room make sure that it is not connected to another cottage. The walls are literally one thin piece of plywood. We could...

We had a wonderful time here. Loved having our own cozy cottage. Everything was as advertised. Our cottage was very clean. There were a couple of housekeeping issues but when I mentioned them to Dave they were immediately taken care of. Jesse at the tikki bar was great. I loved just unwinding listening to him sing. I didn't give a...

I have never felt so dismayed over any experience as a consumer. Memories of this property take on the essence of a nightmare when thought back upon. Between the lousy accommodations, the lack of cleanliness, and the customer relations SNAFU, it's hard for me to believe this place was in business; never mind charging such a premium rate for it's...

We had four beautiful nights at this adorable "old Keys" resort. Having lived in the Keys during the mid-eighties, we were delighted to find an authentic Keys experience. Sheila and staff are super. The room was clean and comfortable, with a refurbished bath. Nice. We will return and recommend to friends.

We've stayed there in the end of Februar 2 nights and had Appartment 1. Its simple and ok but in my opinion it needs renovation. The Furniture looks old and not-matching together, the wind shields are damaged, bathroom clean but old and had defekts. You have with the appartment your own front porch, which is nice but here the same...
