It is clean, quiet and comfortable even though it is small. I love this place, it is on the way from Miami to Key west, which is convenient.

I stayed at Sea Dell with my spouse for seven nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. Sea Dell is not for those who prefer an upscale Hilton experience - it is a modest, refurbished 1950s Florida motel with tile floors and jalousie windows, but therein lies its individual spunky charm. Visitors will be especially delighted with the very clean and comfortably...

The people at this hotel went out of their way to be helpful, finding BBQ charcoal for us to cook our fish and supplying a cooler to take the rest home. The room was very well laid out, very clean, quiet and comfortable. The rates were competitive in the Florida Keys, this hotel is only an hour from Key West....

Clean, quiet, and good A/C in the room. In an area where most accommodations seem to be dive motels or overpriced chain hotels, this is rare middle ground. There is a heated pool and free wi-fi, though my phone wouldn't connect to it properly. They have menus of nearby restaurants in the lobby.

We needed 2 nights at a reasonable rate. We needed a pool. We needed a laundry. We needed 2 beds....It had all these and more. The pool was pristine...towels available. Room 16 in the back is spacious with a small frig. and microwave and room sink and mirror. The bathroom is small but very clean, nice soap and shampoo. Tile...

I planned my trip to the Keys for ages.I found the Sea dell motel on booking.com and read carefully the comments which quite shocked me to be honest. If you are looking for a hotel by the sea or you want a car valeting service or an olympic size swimming pool - go somewhere else! What the Sea Dell Motel...

First of all, this is a motel. Not real fancy, but cute and it had all we needed. We stayed here height of the season for one night, and the Sea Dell was much less than any one night in Key West--and most places in Key West won't let you stay one night during season. The front desk guy was...

The picture on the web site does not do it justice. It is a bit old but it has been maintained quite well. Loved the tiled shower, abt 1930's vintage, even the old faucets; reminded me of the shower/bath I had as a child. Furniture is sturdy wicker, beds very comfortable. Kitchen is equipped with all you need, just bring...

I chose this place based upon the reviews and they were right, nice little place, easy to find, friendly front desk and very clean rooms with a microwave and a rather large fridge! (nice TV too). Had no problems. Having never been to the Keys before, I didn't know what to expect and based upon this trip, I would stay...

We booked this Motel based on Trip Advisor Reviews. My husband and I are retired and love to travel on a budget! We do not book upscale hotels and resorts, normally looking at 2.5 -3.5 star options , vacation rentals, hotels , motels, B& B`s. This trip to The Keys is part of a 3 month road trip exploring the...
