Can't put into words. No parking! Smell of raw sewer water was everywhere. Even though I paid cash, The motel charged my account for $175.00 even before I got there, It took 3 days to take that charge off. Thhis place is a rip off.

If you need a cheap place to stay this is it. I've read the other reviews and have to imagine these people drink wine with there pinkies in the air too. It's a motel, not the Hilton! Our room was great for what we needed, a one night stay halfway to Key West. It was small but reminded me of...

Ok.. I will take each point separately: 1. Our motel as many in the Keys was built in the 1960's . It has the original terrazzo floors which we get compliments on every day. All of the furnishings are updated and current. There is no mold ANYWHERE nor dust. We are the highest rated motel in the Keys for cleanliness,...

Our cancellation policy is very clear and our policy is about the same as every other lodging facility in the Keys. If you cancel within 2 weeks of your arrival and we are not able to rent the room you will be charged. It is very simple and very straightforward. These guests actually cancelled the day of their arrival which...

After reading previous reviews I was afraid of what we were going to see when we arrived at the 3 bedroom trailer but decided to give it a try. I was definitely surprised. It was as stated by owner...CLEAN!! It is nothing fancy but for the price it is worth staying there if you want a decent place to sleep...

Great little non-resort motel. Well-kept and appointed place. The first time we stayed here in 2010 we were at first a bit worried about road/airport noise but over many days during three extended stays have remarked to ourselves how wrong we were. Place has oldstyle flooring, and the sheets and towels are always top-grade.

The siesta motel owners are very misleading they claim the 3 bedroom 2 bath is a suite and when you get there they even tell you..it is a house you are staying in but in actuality it's a double wide trailer filled with spiders in every room along with mold in the bathroom. The beds are so uncomfortable everybody woke...

Well I have to laugh at this review. The suite dishwasher has not worked in years and we do advertise it as having one. There is a large sign on the dishwasher that says "Dishwasher broken - please do not open". AND the funny part is that we have actually used several screws to lock the dishwasher shut to prevent...

The Siesta Motel does not bill itself as a fancy resort with a pool, just promises clean rooms at affordable prices with a helpful staff. I've had family stay here on two occasions. On the second, my son and his fiance were visiting the Keys together for the first time and were given a room just off the small but...

Hi, My young family of six needed a motel to stay at for a few days whilst we quickly explored the Florida Key's area. Marathon, being roughly half way down the keys, seemed to fit the bill. As we are on a budget, Siesta Motel seemed ideal. We booked the 3 bedroom accomodation which is not on site (but is...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Siesta. We booked the smallest double room but were upgraded to the middle-grade efficiency, with 2 double beds and a small kitchenette. The room was bright, clean and cheery. We read all of the reviews and the Owner's responses before booking and were not disappointed. When we indicated we might be arriving late,...
