It cist over $110 per night and the room had garbage under the beds. No maid service the whole 4 days. Had to ask for towels. The table had a quilt on it for a table cloth. The bathroom drain was loose and the wood warped. Exposed wires lead to a TV that was on top of a dresser It... More

Loved the idea of a houseboat but can't described how disappointed we were. The room was so dirty. I moved the bed to use the receptacle and boy I wish I hadn't. There must have been a years dirt and debris behind it. There was rust on the case stand and the worst thing was the shower. The shower controls... More

What a cool place! Sleeping in your own boat so cool. Nothing fancy here though. Place is clean but needs updating. Everything works though - fridge, freezer, microwave, shower. Never turned the tv on so don't know about that. Nice long dock able to see many jellyfish 😊 Husband fished off the boat and dock.

Let start with it is in the Keys and one has to understand the thinking here. After reading the reviews, I did not have the same view. Yes, it is something from a time warp yet this is a tune-out, drop-out type of place. It is off season so the price was $99 plus taxes. The floating room was/is not... More

Kinda cool sleeping in a floating hotel room. The price was good, views great. We grabbed a bite and some drinks one night and sat on the bow enjoying the beautiful weather. Inside was clean, eclectic with very low ceilings (poor, tall husband). Bed wasn't terribly comfortable, which is sorta the point. Weirdly set up. But the price, location and... More

This was a last minute booking on Easter weekend. Booked at 9pm on good Friday It was the only place with vacancy. Was gouged for $380 a night for what I would call a $20 hotel room. Decor = F grade (look like no one cleaned it or painted it or did any repairs since the late 60's) Room was... More

Do not stay here, please!! We booked a room on Expedia last minute about 10 pm while driving through the keys. We pull up to the front desk and everything seemed ok for a small non branded motel. When we got to the room the smell of mold made breathing very difficult. My wife has asthma and is severely allergic... More

I made this reservation at 10pm and called to cancel it at 10:30pm. I had just been told that another hotel lost my reservation and I made this one just in case but then decided it was a mistake. I was extremely frustrated and didn't see that it was non refundable. Out of desperation, I had clicked book even thought... More

My bank and credit card services has been going rounds with the owner/manager of the Sea Cove Motel and Marnia. This place is awful, do not sign anything at check-in, demand to see rooms before giving any personal information. He will run your card while you are looking and then say he doesn't know how to refund your money. He... More

I'll start by pointing out that this establishment has a two star rating. At no point does it try to deny this or lie about it. From that you pretty much know what you can expect. This was never going to be a Ritz Carlton or Atlantis. We decided to have a long weekend in the Florida Keys with very... More
