We stayed at the Sea Dell for 3 night recently (room 15) and thought the place was great. Very clean quiet room with a comfortable king bed and a flat screen TV. There's a nice pool with plenty of chairs and a few tables with unbrellas. The lady we spoke with, Sue, to make our reservations couldn't have been more...

We chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and the price. We were very happy with our choice once we arrived. The motel is small, but the location was easy to find and our room was just right. The staff was very helpful and gave us a list of area restaurants and a map showing all the locations. The pool...

This was a great motel. We had accidentally not booked a night at our planned hotel in Marathon and Gary was great at accommodating us. He set us with a room and dinner plans. Completely unexpected but a great experience. The room was very clean and well maintained. The check out was easy. There are grills and tables outside of...

First, we were surprised how nice the lady at the reception was. She waited for us until 9 p.m. and gave us some very valuable (and objective) insider-tips as to the nearby restaurants and attractions. The room we were directed to was rather small, but comfortable. The noisy air conditioning got a bit on our nerves - could be modernized...

My wife, daughter and granddaughter just spent 4 nights in Marathon at this hotel. It was by far one of the nicest small non-chain motels we have ever stayed at. The room was clean and maintained daily, quiet and centrally located to all the attractions. Hope to go to Marathon again for diving and would stay here again and highly...

Some friends and I stayed here for a last minute get away during lobster mini season. This was one of the most affordable hotels on Marathon. The Sea Dell turned out to be the nicest road side motel I have ever stayed at! It was super clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the staff was exceptionally friendly. If you...

We read prior reviews for this motel and decided to try it, glad we did. It was conveniently located only an hours drive from Key West. The room was very clean and kept up well. The only downside was that the t.v. was very small, but we didn't use it much. The kids enjoyed the cool pool after a long...

We have stayed here for 4 days every Thanksgiving holiday for the last 3 years. My wife, my son, and I find it clean and comfortable, friendly, helpful, and convenient, since it is almost directly across from Marathon Island's main shopping plaza with 2 major grocery stores. We've tried 2 other hotels that are on the beach nearby (Coco Plum)...

We stayed at the Sea Dell for two nights on our way home from Key West. We were on our Honeymoon and had just flown all day from St. Lucia. We were absolutely exhausted and in desperate need of some good sleep. While driving through Marathon we saw the Sea Dell beautifully lit up and although we do not typically...
