This was a good choice halfway in the keys. Nice, clean rooms. Right on a canal with a great restaurant behind it. Our rooms were huge and faced the canal. Would definitely recommend it for anyone. Heated pool added extras.

Don't think about checking in early at this hotel. The cleaning staff seem to congregate in the hallways and chit chat more than getting the rooms clean. Check in was fine and so was check out. If they tell you that they will put you on the third floor don't be alarmed when they put you on the first floor....

Typical HIE. Clean room, friendly professional service and good breakfast buffet. We were traveling with our Boxer, Pax, and the front desk clerk had housekeeping get a room ready sooner than it was scheduled. The room was close to a little used side door that opened onto a small area that was ideal for us to take him out without...

This is a typical modern, clean, efficient HI Express dropped into the middle of the Keys. Unlike the slightly more expensive HI in Key Largo where the extensive, lush landscaping in the pool area gives it a true tropical resort feel, this one could be anywhere. However, it is one of the few (relatively) good deals in the Keys, which...

Thank you so much for your detailed review. It seems you had a wonderful time in Marathon and a do-it-yourself bike trip seems like a perfect way to see everything on the island. We are happy you enjoyed Tarpon Creek and agree with your comments on their signature drink. We hope to have the chance to welcome you back again...

We stayed 4 nights, our room was excellent overlooking the pool and water. Breakfast was adequate and we took ours to the pool-side each morning. Marathon is a good location as a base for exploring the Keys; we ate at the Tarpon Creek restaurant (adjoining the hotel) although no priority given to hotel guests. There is also another good restaurant...

Great hotel which was clean and comfortable. Reception staff were very helpful. The free breakfast is adequate and you can ask for a bag to take food away, which is a pleasant change. Good location if you are visiting the Keys.

We stayed for several days while traversing the Keys and found the place to be what you would expect form HIE. Clean rooms, good service at a good price (for the area and season).
