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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

It was memorial day weekend and we were excited about staying on a boat but it turned out to be a nightmare. I was charged $300 for roaches, ants, and termites crawling on us. My son had stayed at this place a couple of years ago and it was ok but it just needed updating then. It has gone downhill...

First, you have to keep the Keys mentality in mind when you come here...simple, simple, simple. These houseboats sit on a small inlet of water; the morning was nice; watching a few dolphin play just off our boat was a nice surprise! The accommodations, clean but so grossly outdated, were disappointing. The furnishings are a mismatch conglomeration from the early...

(2230hrs) ($195.00 1 night) Very bad first impression of office manager/owner. Bungalow was dirty with hair on floor, toilet, sink and tub looked like they were just used. Beds were half made, blinds were broken/missing. Turned down the comforter and sheets and our 10 YO found bugs in bed. Our 7 YO got very upset. Killed one and went to...
