Kim and Steve are the Best. They made us feel like family so down to earth. We started saving for next year's vacation. We are coming back same place same time. We are counting the days till we get to stay at this wonderful motel. They keep the rooms and pool and grounds so clean and neat.

This is by far the best place to stay in all of the Keys if you own a boat. The managers, Steve and Kim, treated us like family. Helpful, cheerful, and always available, they make the place my #1 destination.

We always enjoy staying at the Royal Hawaiian! Great rooms, walk outside into your boat, literally right outside your door. So glad to have Steve and Kim, Managers here. Whatever you need they are always right there. Ron and I feel like we came on vacation and made 2 new friends. The rooms are typical Keys rooms, very clean and...

The owners were very friendly and offered great advice regarding where to go and what to do. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. Very affordable with a nice view of the ocean. Conveniently located to everything the Keys have to offer.

We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian July 2015 and it was great. If you are a boater-fisherman, this is the place for you. The location is optimal, right off the Vaca Cut so both the Atlantic and Gulf are easily accessible. The boat was kept right on the canal just outside our door. The rooms are very clean and the...

My partner and I wanted to take our 15' aluminum boat with us on vacation, so we decided on the Royal Hawaiin Motel/Botel. Great people running this location with excellent services. The price was fantastic and being able to open our sliding door and walk to our boat and go out fishing was so AWESOME. We will definitely go there...

Staying at the Royal Hawaiian Botel was like home away from home. My husband, myself and 2 children ages 8 and 9 stayed in a kitchenette. We were in Marathon to fish and relax. Our boat was directly outside our door. The room was super clean, and contained everything we needed for a family of 4 to prepare meals and...

A friend and I stayed here for a week at the end of June 2015. Excellent location for fishing access to the bay or reef. My boat was only two steps out the sliding glass door. Room was perfectly cleaned each day when we returned from the water. The management on site were very helpful and super friendly.

Clean rooms and great access to the bayside or Atlantic side via the Vaca Cut. What made it extra special were the couple running the place. They were very friendly and helpful. If you needed anything they were always right there. Highly recommend this place if you are doing some fishing and want to walk out of your room and...

If you are heading to the Keys for fishing or diving, I don't know of a better location. Located minutes to Vaca Cut at the South end of Marathon allows easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic sides of the Middle Keys. The managers of the Royal Hawaiian are among the best you will find! I will definitely return! Clean,...
