I really loved this place and also the fact that they welcomed our little dog. Really laid back right on the water, very nicely run. Never disappoints as a short vacation getaway. Not a resort type place but old school Keys comfort quiet in a nice location. Not crowded or busy. Like the pool and quiet. Has few units so...

My husband and I and our dog stayed here Dec 2015. Rachel was very easy to work with. Location was perfect for us to visit all the Keys on our motorcycle. There was a spot on the property to park our truck and trailer which is not always easy to find. Our dog was treated well. Good restaurants close by...

I have read some negative reviews of this hotel but those folks must have been staying at another hotel. We stayed in an incredible kitchenette with a king bed and a huge deck. We took our dog and we were worried that he would not have a place to walk. The huge deck was excellent because he could look out...

The room was a bit small, but perfect for what we needed- there were 4 of us in one room with a big doggie- My daughter and my fur baby gazed at the ocean for hours from the giant bay windows that outlined the beds- We were able to grab a kayak and head out for a few hours, then...

We road tripped through The Keys for over a week staying at 3 hotels; this was my favourite by a MILE! The location is fantastic, close to restaurants and points of interest, but secluded enough for you to feel isolated from the hustle and bustle. Our room was a great size with a small kitchen that we made breakfast in...

We stayed in this property on november, We just would like to say " thanks a lot" to the owners for their kindness and for offering this service. Rooms are very cute and comfortable, located in front of the sea. For any person who's coming to Keys Island, don't hesitate to stay there. We live in France so we won't...

I read mixed reviews about this hotel and decided to take my chances. It's not a super clean, 24-hour front desk, white sandy beach front hotel. It appears to be run by a couple and they're often not at the front desk although you can call them. We were very disappointed by the beach front when they got there but...

My husband and I have been going to White Sands Inn for years. It is a small place with 11 suites/rooms. This is a place where you find comfortable rooms and suites at reasonable prices.

This place is amazing. I've been visiting White Sands Inn for many years, and it just keeps getting better. The rooms are all clean and painted in the colors you'd expect in the Florida Keys, and the staff is wonderful. I've stayed in 4 different rooms as a paying guest, but have visited every room on the property and every...
