Second stay after 13 years away and it was like coming home! Super clean rooms, very friendly and professional staff, use of kayak, paddle boats and pool were just a few of the highlights from our stay. From the moment we arrived we (and our dog) felt welcomed and appreciated. Even my partner (a tough sell) said "there's no reason...

We needed a place to unwind and relax before and after wedding activities. Found this place online, took a chance, and am glad we did. We wanted a real feel Keys experience and this place delivered.

Another excellent experience! We were able to get away with our four-legged friend for a relaxing vacation. We stayed in a different room than usual, but the same clean, comfortable and laid back experience as usual. Did not get a chance to use the kayaks or canoes on site, but they were there ready to go. As always, we love...

Nice clean smoke free rooms. Pool was great in the hot weather. Easy checkin and out. We would stay again. Next time we will plan time to use the kayaks and paddle boats that are available to guests. The kids enjoyed the tortoise and parrot area. Thank you.

I first stayed here 9 years ago and this is my favorite place to stay when I go to the Keys. It is a very comfortable, relaxing and pretty place.

We stayed for 3 nights and booked because of reviews. It was an old Florida 50-60's type motel. The grounds were quaint and room clean on appearance. The daily housekeeping was good. However the last night we got back late and were welcomed by a host of roaches on the kitchen counter. I told the front desk when checking out...

This is by far not a fancy place. However, the charm makes up for it. We really enjoyed the laid back and casual feeling of this hotel. The rooms are very clean and bed was comfortable.
