We stay at this place based on the photos and reasonable price. We paid extra to get a bigger place. After we checked in, we were told that our lodge is ½ miles away from the office. We were shocked to find out the extra money we paid is a place next to highway and above the Tiki restaurant /bar....

+ friendly helpful staff + cozy garden with hammocks + nearby Sombrero beach (good beach with free entrance and free parking) + better value for money than on key west + diner nearby + cute clean cottage - thin walls: we could hear the neighbours

We stayed one night. Reasonable price for a decent value. The cottages are dated, and a bit worn. However, they are clean and comfortable. The grounds are nice, and we really enjoyed the hammocks and the tiki hut. All in all a pleasant stay for a reasonable price in a place where you could spend more for less.

It is a bit weird thinking that Tropical Cottages would be situated in the middle of the busiest stretch of highway right behind a busy bank (it really was awkward). The kitchenette was ok, although I wish there was something to cook in the cottage(other than a microwave) or a grill right outside. They lacked items to scrub dishes with....

When we travel, my daughter and I like to get a feel for the essence of an area. Tropical Cottages in Marathon FL gave us just that! The cottages could easily be described as "beach comber shacks" and were clean, comfortable, and ... vintage. We were assigned cottage #6, which contained AC, microwave, fridge, coffee pot, toaster, dishes, and towels....

The area is quiet and near to the beaches . I like the little area outside the rooms where you could sit and...

We stayed one night in Cottage #4. It was very clean and cute. As everyone said, you park your car right next to the cottage so that was very convenient. The bed was comfortable and the service was great. We would definitely go back..!!

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in Cottage #8, which has a king-sized bed and outdoor shower. We arrived much earlier than the standard check-in time, but our cottage was ready and we were allowed to check-in. The service and hospitality at Tropical Cottages was exceptional throughout our stay. Truly nice people who strive to keep you happy while...

We arrived and met no one but there was a welcoming note for us so we did not have to wait to get into our cottage.Our room was clean and by our surprise had a bathroom outside. Was a little hesitant about it at first until we walked around it and felt the cool (ya right moist) night air. We...
