My wife and I stayed in room #3 Hibiscus for one night on the way to Key West, wish we stayed longer! The room was bright and spotlessly clean and two steps from the beach! Sunrise was something I cannot stop thinking about. Can't wait to return!

This is a small family run hotel. It has a beautiful view of the sunrise. Each room is unique. We have stayed in most of them. Our favorite is room seven (upstairs beach side). It has a lovely view of the water from the balcony deck. This is the best place for an early morning breakfast at sunrise. The management...

My boyfriend and I stayed in Room 3 - Hibiscus Room. It was perfect for us. Walking out our door on to the sand and having the water and pier right there was beautiful. Our room had a stove, microwave and fridge. Shower stall was a little small but not bad. They offer charcoal grills (you must supply charcoal). They...

This place is lovely. Rachel and the staff were really nice. I even messed up and had my reservations wrong and they fixed it. They are super. It is a very relaxing place to stay. I have stayed in the main resort and in the house next door. Everything is clean and the pool is nice too. Sorry I waited...

A great place to really unwind. Only here for 2 days on our way back from key west - lovely place to catch our breath before moving on to Key Largo. Sounds cheesy but it really is a chance to just be in the moment and really appreciate your surroundings and how lucky we are to have been here. Thank...

The accommodation is rated as 2 star which in my opinion is a little low. The 2 bed apartment we stayed in was spacious and clean. The location is idyllic and it is lovely to lie on the hammock and watch the sun go down. The beach really comes alive at night so it is worth taking a torch and...

Grassy key is located a little bit from the downtown of Marathon which makes it a very relaxing place.They have a pool on the ocean, Kayaks to rent. The rooms were very clean and gave us the feel of the old Florida. We enjoyed our stay immenselyat the White Sands Inn.

Great hotel! The staff is very friendly. Our room is small but overlooks the ocean! Amazing view! The grounds are well kept. Kayak rental on property for a reasonable price. Quiet and quaint. The decor is fun and old Florida. The other visitors were very positive about their stay as well

We had a great time, the owners are very nice along with the inn keeper. The rooms are older but has everything you need, yet the outside is beyond natural beauty.... besides who wants to be inside when you are at the keys!!

So, my friend books this place six weeks ago for a wedding. They call a week ago and say they can no longer accommodate her. AND they try to charge her a $20 cancellation fee. What?? She argues with them ... They finally credit her account with the $300. And she is still out a hotel room... No let me...
