My wife and I have visited Marathon many times, and have often ridden our bikes by the Sandpiper Motel. The main thing that jumps out at you is its exotic atmosphere, almost like some of the motels in the jungles in South America that we've stayed at. The Sandpiper is such a beautiful little motel that I'd been wanting to...

I travel with a friend and my dog..and we spent a week in this motel, nice, clean, quiet and the manager , Anita, is a wonderful person and very helpful. You have to share the place with some friendly cats and it was a pleasant and restful stay in spite of US 1.

Looks like a small place, although the people were great and very friendly. The motel was centrally located to great restaurants and shopping. The owner is a guy named Bobby how is very hands on and is very helpful. Rates are very reasonable and the room comes with a fridge, stove, and sink. Basically a little kitchen. Overall it was...

My husband and I spent 5 weeks at the Sandpiper from mid-January 2010 until the end of February 2010. Anita, the manager, was wonderful! My husband had been injured on our trip and we pretty much wound up using our efficiency as a rehab. There is no pool, but there is a beautiful sandy beach located in Marathon that is...

Our friends were staying at a nearby resort which was way to expensive for me. We found The Sandpiper and were very happy. Anita was a pleasure and our stay was wonderful. In fact, the friends who were staying across the street at the fancy resort didn't have some of the nice things Anita provides for her guests like glasses...
