Very old and neglected motel. It is a shame because a little bit of work could turn this into a quaint place. First, there is no pool. The gardens have not seen a landscaper in a very long time. There is no onsite restaurant. I would not remove the cover from the dilapidated BBQ for fear of might be underneath....

This was the cheapest room we could find in Marathon in February. The room was clean and tidy, but the location right next to the highway meant you had traffic noise all the time. However, the beds were probably as old as the motel, and should be dumped. Noisy springing, sagging either side of the centre and sooo lumpy. Unbelievably...

Well you stated you picked the cheapest room you could find and yet you want to complain it was not top resort quality. Our beds are less than 2 years old and most people find them comfortable. Everyone has preferences on what type of bed they like and we con't please everyone. In addition the pool is advertised as being...

I rely very much on guest reviews when I choose a hotel. Many folks choose a budget motel (like this one) and expect world class accommodations and when they don't get it, they write a bad review. This is an older motel that provides a clean comfortable stay in Marathon Key. The pink and Black tile in the bathroom says...

Clean, Affordable and Pet-Friendly, what more can you ask for? It is a smaller, vintage-style Florida Motel. Cozy and quaint. Kitchenette. Beautiful blooming trees and flowers in the garden area. Walking distance to several restaurants and good coffee next door! Manager is very nice.

We had to cancel our reservation because my husband lost his job. When calling, he seemed very understanding. After 2 weeks our deposit was not refunded so I called and was given the excuse he was sick. The next call my husband placed and he promised to look into why we didn't get the refund. My husband called a second...

The room was clean and appropriate. Unfortunately it had terrible beds, but the guy in charge promised to look after that. Besides he's a funny and very likeable guy and gave us brilliant food tips for our two days stay.

We were gonna be there a few days. One day was enough. The mildewy rooms with dirty bed sheers and AC that doesn't cool. The many Palmetto roaches that lurk about. We should of read more into the reviews but we were just anxious to go to the Keys. Never again.

Our rooms are spotlessly clean with no trace of mildew or mold. My housekeepers get compliments daily on the cleanliness of the rooms.. Palmetto bugs live outside on the palm trees and there is not much we can do about nature outside. I definitely suggest you not choose a value motel if you want all the luxuries and amenities of...

Room was dirty & NO POOL, I was told there was a pool, you have assess to 2 pools some where else. Didn't stay there because of the conditions (daughter has health problems) manager billed me even though he was able to rent the room to someone else. Dirty, dirty, filed with BBB.
