Wife and I drove down to Marathon to meet friends who rented a condo there. Front desk people were OK, not great. Had a room that was on the ground floor and it was noisy. Walls seamed to be a bit thin. Room was clean, beds were a bit lumpy. WiFi, bathroom were good. Breakfast was just OK. Parking was...

Considering how humid the FL Keys can get this hotel did not have a musty smell. The rooms and hotel lobby were nice and clean and the hotel staff were very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was the usual Holiday Inn Express fare. The breakfast room was clean and the staff kept all of the food well stocked. I am...

I stayed two nights with my friend for a quick getaway with the kids and I can tell you the only thing going for this hotel is their friendly housekeeping and maintenance staff. The front desk agent Yvette was not only rude but not helpful. First my son went to ask for anew room key and she wouldn't give it...

Nice value property in Marathon. Room was large and very clean, and pretty standard for the brand. We had a front facing room with a slightly obstructed view of the gulf. The pool area here is very nice. It is located in a well landscaped area along a canal. Along the water there is a small boardwalk that runs the...

This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is a typical HI but this hotel got all the "big" stuff right - friendly hotel staff, clean rooms, plenty of hot water under good pressure, an AC unit that can maintain a good temperature 24 hrs/day, and a good FREE breakfast that gets resupplied consistently. It was also nice to have a fridge...

We were part of a group of 120 bicycle rides traveling from Key Largo to key West. Marathon was our half way point. The group and a great dinner by the pool overlooking the canal. The rooms and service were great. This definitely worth considering for a stay in the Keys.

I am an IHG rewards member due to traveling for business. I stay in a lot of hotels from this brand. I was extremely pleased with this location. It is central to everything, has a nice restaurant, and plenty of parking for boats and trailers. The staff was awesome. It was so nice that we were going to stay a...

Let's face it. With only a few exceptions hotel/hotels not part of the big lodging groups -- IHG, Hilton, Hyatt, etc. -- are more often than not substandard, so travelers usually opt for a cookie-cutter property they know will be clean and comfortable, but with no individual character. That's the case with the Marathon HI -- with one exception. The...
