“We had a great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

I just checked the photos here and I couldn´t see any of that in our room. Our room was very fresh, we just came from Orlando where we payed the double and this was better. Also A HUGE PLUS for the kitchen so we easily could cook ourself.
Will absolutely go back to this place whenever I return to the Keys.

Avoid this place! If you look at the date on the reviews, most are very old. I booked the 3 bedroom effeciency based on the pictures and information on their website. Nobody ever told me that this unit was actually an old double wide trailor. Their slogan, "Cleanest rooms in Paradise", couldn't be more inaccurate. When I arrived at the motel, I asked to see the facility and what I saw made me change my mind about staying there. I found mold in the bathroom.

When I asked to cancel my reservation, the lady that I spoke with (I believe it was Tina) became very rude and would not even discuss a refund (partial or otherwise). There is no security for this facility and if you need anything, you have to walk to the office door and call someone to come help you. I would never recommend this motel.

Just spent 3 nights in the the 3 bedroom efficiency. Manager and staff were very friendly. Place was clean and neat. This is a motel- not a spa and not a hotel. If you want safe, cheap, clean and neat while checking out Marathon, this would be a good choice.

No reviews said that it was literally across the street from the airport. I should've looked at the map before I booked this. Also the beds were terrible, very hard, for a moment I thought maybe I was sitting on the box spring then realized it was the mattress. It was a little dingy, but the bathroom was clean as was the kitchenette. Also the guy who checked me in was very friendly. Wifi worked great. A/c worked fine. All in all I should've checked out the location a little better. I won't stay again.

Thanks for the mostly good review.. With regards to the airport - you failed to mention that it is a private airport with no commercial airlines. We probably have 3 or 4 small private planes land daily. No big jets or loud noise so I do not understand why there being a small airport was a problem.

Our rooms have the original Terrazzo floors and we get compliments on them all the time. The Miami Herald wrote a fabulous vacation article that even praised our floors and the original 50's era tile bathrooms. Dingy ?? no.. Nostalgic.. Yes..

Hopefully you will change your mind and visit us again!

We stayed in the house/ trailer which was just 20 yards down the side road from the main rooms.It was very spacious and clean but very out dated.The bed was comfortable and you could not hear the noise from the main road.The price was reasonable and I would say it is just about an OK place to stay if you want to travel down to Key West and back in a day.If you have time Sombrero Beach is just a short drive away.
