I booked this on reviews, you get what you pay for. If you just want a place to sleep..good value. If you book on the thought of the name "Resort" change your mind. This is a Motel not a Hotel and certainly NOT a Resort. The "private beach" is nothing more than boulders from the marina and almost cement looking...

This is a nice motel of perhaps 2-3 star. It was clean and the grounds were nicely kept. When you first walk into the lobby, of you are used to finer hotels you will say 'oh no'. Basically it is like steeping back in time but there is nothing wrong at all with this place. We've stayed in Hilton's, Marriott's...

The keys are expensive yes, but when you fork 170 us $ you expect something decent. Let's start with the good: the a/c was strong. Now with the bad: they clean everything with bleach so you suffocate going in. Cleanliness questionable as my wife saw hair and pubic hair which discussed her. The beach is not recommended. It is next...

I could not get a reservation with my timeshare = The Hammocks, but after being there last year and at Black Fin this year - I never want to go back to the Hammocks. Black Fin is family - clean - old time charm of the keys, fantastic pool and area - love the food and entertainment at Hurricane Grill...

The Blackfin Resort is one of those places you cannot describe precisely. It is not going to compare with the brand new big chain hotels not far down the road. That is the allure of this place. You are stepping back to a time when motels like this were numerous and popular. Our kitchenette room was humble, but comfortable. The...

We have enjoyed a 2 night stay. The lady on check in was very helpful and informative. The room was spacious and clean with coffee, fridge and microwave. The marina is beautiful and the sun set to die for. Snorkeling good. By coincidence there was the annual sea food festival which was also very enjoyable. An hours drive to Key...

Clean rooms, helpful staff, friendly guests. The place is close to restaurants and Sombrero Beach...one of my favorites in the Keys. Hotel wifi was uneven. The room was very spacious with fridge, sink, microwave, and full set of pots, pans, and dishes, and looks like it had been mostly updated. Bed very comfy and quiet nights meant a good night...

We have stayed many other places in the keys but this was my favorite. We enjoyed the beach area even though you have to climb down some stairs to get into the water. We liked that our dog could use the beach and go swimming too. We also loved the warm pool that is kept at 86 degrees. Having a...

Driving into the resort transports you to a simpler time. It is very laid back in its appearance. Rooms are large, but include a coffee pot, microwave and small fridge. (There are also units with kitchenettes) Everyone we met was friendly --- and easy to talk to, almost like being on a cruise ship. The attached marina was a great...
