Stayed one night. Desk staff great. Definatly a keys place. Due to overbooking by Booking.com we were upgraded to a duplex for our original price! The duplex room was a little chlorine odor when we arrived but airing out took care of that. Room was obviously renovated and was lovely. The kitchen area was clean and new! We were worried...

Spent one night here as we explored the Florida Keys. The hotel is very quaint with beautiful colors and an island theme. Beds were nice and the rooms were updated and very clean. Staff were very nice. Would stay here again.

As a multi Keys visitors - we finally got a reservation at the very cute, convenient and CLEAN Sea Dell Motel. The rooms here are very well appointed. Clean - did I mention that? Something you just don't find in the Keys - even in the big properties. This motel is located right on the main US1 highway and in...

We have stayed at various places in Marathon while vacationing there in March every year for the last 6 years. Most of them have been in a condo and once in a studio apartment. Now we live in Southwest Florida and occasionally make a trip to the Keys to stay for a couple of days. We have stayed at a...

Quiet, very clean, comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Great little place to stay in the keys. We had a plesant stay and it was just right. It is not a high end resort but just the right place to stay and very much worth for the price we pay. Staff provided all the information on restaurants. Restaurants are...

We stayed here one night as we traveled to Key West. It was perfect. Very comfortable and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. They had lots of tips on restaurants and attractions in the area. Their pride in their work really shows.

We stayed here for two nights as Hurricane Sandy was passing off to the east. Even though the weather was not the best, we had a great stay here at this very charming motel. It reminded me very much of a classic roadside Florida motel from the 60s and 70s. The room was very clean, spacious and well equipped. Our...

The Sea Dell Motel. It's like a trip back into the 1950s. I look for three things in a motel. 1. Clean 2. Safe 3. Comfortable The Sea Dell Motel delivers on all these things! The staff is exceptional and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Now you have to realize that his motel was built in the 1950s...

Great price. Nice pool. Friendly staff. Clean. What else can I say? Not a fancy resort, but who needs the exorbitant fees for simple things like wifi, parking and having someone carry your bags? Would recommend this place to anyone just looking for a nice little motel in the heart of the keys.
