I've stayed here 4 or 5 times now. This place is consistently good. Very clean and comfortable,and reasonably priced. Close to everything you might need too. Owned and run by a local Florida family,who will make you feel like family. If I'm ever in the area,The Ranch House Motel is where I'm staying.

The motel is small but cozy. Being halfway down the Keys, it is in a prime location to explore everything from Key Largo to Key West. It is family owned and operated. They are super friendly and the owner even cut me a piece of Aloe to soothe my sunburn! They kept our room super clean and took great care...

Great place to stay if you're looking for basic accommodations. The place is kept very clean. The lady that runs the Motel is super friendly. Marathon is great location with easy access to all the Florida Keys and there is quite a lot to do in Marathon also.

We needed a place to sleep to break up our one day trip to Key West. This being high season, hotel rates were expensive. We came upon this gem! Believe everything you read about this motel - quirky on the outside, immaculate on the inside. They take great pride in their place, clean, updated bathroom, fluffy white towels! We would...

“Stayed in 5 and 10. Both spotless, 5 roomier and completely updated. 10 sleeps 3 and is at the end, furthest from road. Both great choices.”

“The property is right on the highway, so the vehicular traffic slows down at night but never completely stops. Higher room numbers are further from the road.”
