My girlfriend and I had lodging that did not work out which resulted in us needing a place to stay at the last minute. We ended up staying here and ended up in the room after 10pm. At first it appeared we had gotten lucky as it was a suite with small kitchen and everything else that goes with it....

Pros: Guest service personnel were very nice and helpful. The guy at the front desk deserves a better gig! :) View from room was nice. Cons: WAY overpriced for what you get (almost $200 a night). We stayed in the so called 2-bedroom suite / with ocean view. It was not 2 bedroom (a queen size bed with a futon),...

We had a 3 bd 2 br looking out at the water, great view clean place.Nice staff they let us stay a few hours longer on our last day. Furniture needs updated but over all really clean and comfortable. The price was right.

The rooms were comfortable, the central a/c was great in the keys, pet friendly (minimal to no fee), the white beach & iguanas were cute. I loved my view from the balcony and the peace & quite was exactly what I was looking for. Dont leave food or drinks on the counters or the sugar/pharoh ants will invade. Also, dont...

I wanted to write a review to let everyone know what an amazing, wonderful Inn this is. A few friends and myself were taking a trip to Key West and needed somewhere to stay for one night. While we were in Key Largo we went on HotWire to book a hotel around 10:15pm. HotWire set us up with YellowTail Inn...

We were bicycling our way down the keys and I chose this place based on its location. We wanted to bike about 30 miles a day and we had started at Tavernier Key that morning.) This is an adorable, slightly campy but lovely ocean side inn. Enjoyed quietly watching the sunrise over their magnificent pier with other guests in their...

I booked this room on travelocity secret rooms because hotels in the Keys are so expensive(especially on a Friday evening) that I ended up here. I was hoping that the reviews were wrong, but unfortunately they weren't. To start off, the good stuff: It is located off the beach,a nd I found the beach to be quite nice(it isn't sandy,...

We were looking for a place by the ocean in Marathon, FL. Through Expedia we found Yellowtail Inn. It is over priced. I realize that accomodations in the Keys are $$$expensive, but this one has the potential of being acceptable but it is run-down and not catered too. We are seasoned travellers and know the value of hotels. This one...

My husband and I were looking for somewhere affordable but right on the water and this place fit the bill. After reading all the reviews, we were a little concerned but decided we wouldn't be at the room much anyway so it wouldn't matter. This place is in a really good location between Islamorada and Marathon. (Closer to Marathon) Honestly,...

We first stayed at Yellowtail Inn some 12 years ago. It was our favorite place to stay, quaint, quiet and the little bungalos offered a private, romantic setting. We just returned from the Keys and had the single worst experience with a hotel ever. The floor under the bed was so slanted that two people could not sleep in the...

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. I wish you would've alerted us to your problems while you were here, when we could have done something about it. Hopefully your next trip to the Keys will be more enjoyable.
