Nice place to hang out, the staff is very friendly. The owner is a very nice man, sat with us at our morning coffee almost every morning to have a chat. Personal attention, interested in his guests and taking care of his business. We had an early check-inn, at 10:30AM, which was very nice! Staff was very helpfull and nice....

Arrived quite early at the Sea Dell after what seemed like forever driving from Miami. However this was not a problem and we were soon in our room, changed and by the pool. The motel is located right on highway 1 and superbly located for shops, food and Sombrero Beach. Very clean with a large comfortable bed, an endless supply...

We stayed at the Sea Dell for 3 night recently (room 15) and thought the place was great. Very clean quiet room with a comfortable king bed and a flat screen TV. There's a nice pool with plenty of chairs and a few tables with unbrellas. The lady we spoke with, Sue, to make our reservations couldn't have been more...

We chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and the price. We were very happy with our choice once we arrived. The motel is small, but the location was easy to find and our room was just right. The staff was very helpful and gave us a list of area restaurants and a map showing all the locations. The pool...

This was a great motel. We had accidentally not booked a night at our planned hotel in Marathon and Gary was great at accommodating us. He set us with a room and dinner plans. Completely unexpected but a great experience. The room was very clean and well maintained. The check out was easy. There are grills and tables outside of...

First, we were surprised how nice the lady at the reception was. She waited for us until 9 p.m. and gave us some very valuable (and objective) insider-tips as to the nearby restaurants and attractions. The room we were directed to was rather small, but comfortable. The noisy air conditioning got a bit on our nerves - could be modernized...

My wife, daughter and granddaughter just spent 4 nights in Marathon at this hotel. It was by far one of the nicest small non-chain motels we have ever stayed at. The room was clean and maintained daily, quiet and centrally located to all the attractions. Hope to go to Marathon again for diving and would stay here again and highly...

Some friends and I stayed here for a last minute get away during lobster mini season. This was one of the most affordable hotels on Marathon. The Sea Dell turned out to be the nicest road side motel I have ever stayed at! It was super clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the staff was exceptionally friendly. If you...
