We stayed at the Blue Marlin several years in a row when the rates were reasonable. We were willing to overlook the shabby worn out furniture in the rooms and the very modest breakfast for the reasonable rates they were charging at the time. I will admit the hotel has a good location, a large pool , and is fairly...

We only stayed for one night. The check in was quick and the staff very friendly and helpful. There was space in the courtyard to park your car. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom wasn't high standard but ok for a one night stay. The breakfast is very basic and I didn't eat any of it as it...

Room 124 was EXCELLENT! Large, clean with all amenities in tremendous working order. This property is 0.9 miles from the center of activity on Duval Street yet walking was A-OK, safe and fun. King bed was comfortable, microwave & frig worked well, WiFI & TV had zero flaws, and bath was HUGE! Very affordable in contrast to other properties downtown....

The kids loved the pool and that it's open until midnight. The rooms are fresh and updated. Reception was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was bland but fine. You're so close to it all downtown Key West!

We didn't know better to ask and ended up upstairs requiring narrow cement stairs to reach. Could be dangerous. Our room had old stained carpeting while all our friends had larger rooms with tile floors which were more sanitary. Also our bathtub and toilet both didn't drain and when reported to front desk we were given a plunger. Great location...

In town for the 1/2 marathon so hotel rooms were at a premium. Got 2 rooms at the Blue Marlin for a reasonable (for Key West) price and was pleasantly surprised when we got to the room. Room was larger than we had anticipated, the bathroom was as well. Our rooms were updated fairly recently so the place had a...
