La Jolla Resort in Islamorada, Florida is a hidden jewel. Buildings and rooms are old but extremely clean and very comfortable. Ours had 2 queen sized beds and a small kitchen with large fridge, 4 burner electric stove, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, dishes, and pots and pans. The A.C. worked great, as the weather was hot and steamy. The grounds...

My wife and two of her friends had a short trip to the Keys. LA Jolla was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. This is Old Florida at I know it growing up. The room was clean and well cared for. Nothing spectacular but comfortable and safe. We were given a room with double beds and a small...

A great place to relax and enjoy the Keys! Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet! The view was incredible and I loved the small family feel, we sat outside in the evening watching the sunset chatting with other guests. We used the kayaks and loved the pool! Great location, I can't wait to go back again!!!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel while we were in Islamorada for our friends wedding. The hotel is very plain, but the very staff was very friendly, it sits directly on the ocean, the cost was reasonable, and you can check out kayaks, paddle boards, and bicycles at no cost.

My wife and I recently spent 4 days here on our annual Key's vacation and it was a great find. I have drove by this place a number of times on way south but had never stayed here. The location is perfect. We walked to breakfast and dinner everyday. We went out on their kayaks everyday as well.We say everything...

If you don't need a typical hotel experience and want a rustic room with a view, go to La Jolla in Islomarada,Florida which is located in the Florida Keys. Although I used the word "rustic" Conch Villa A Bayfront was clean, cozy, and had a full kitchen. We loved the kitchen because we could just stay in our bathing suits,...

If you're not bothered by little things, this is a lovely, quaint little place to stay. They have a small, nice beach area with a boat ramp, docks, fish cleaning station, kayaks and other things to do. The rooms were within 50m of the water, reasonably clean and had a nice kitchenette. Motels in the Key's are pricey, especially during...

I loved this place so much I hope it stays just the way it is, undiscovered except by serious fisherman and the folks who love the Salt. I loved, loved this wonderful little American owned place. I didn't want to leave :)

This place has a really nice, laid-back kind of feel. The buildings are vintage 1950's-1960's concrete block with bright tropical colors. Very nice retro-keys look. The vintage neon sign out front says it all. This is not fancy- but most rooms have a kitchen or kitchenette and they are well-kept and clean. The manager on-site is Scott, and he is...
