I'm generally so good about looking at reviews before dropping 200.00 a night! Don't have a clue why I didn't look closer at the reviews for this place! We were on our last trek of our Maine to Key West Road trip, and ended up here for 2 nights! WOW.... is there not a Florida standard that has to be...

Clean, old including: broken tiles in BR, paint pealing, bed without a box spring (back killer), vertical blinds didn't work, TV was antique and finicky, rusted floor moldings and a coffee pot that was unusable...but what should I have expected for $200 a night? The demand is very high in Islamorada, which allows this honky-tonk town to thrive without property...

I never checked if there was an elevator. The answer is "no" and we were booked on the 3rd floor. Unfortunately my husband had to lug all the luggage because I have a back problem and even navigating the stairs was difficult. The room was not well maintained as the slider to the balcony would not close, the ceiling fan...

I'm a hotel manager for a major brand. I look for three things in a hotel: clean, friendly, everything works. This motel had all three. When I called to confirm my reservation, (Teagan?) was very friendly and helpful. Also, upon check in (Julie?) was extremely helpful with information about the area, taking time to speak with me about various changes...

Not a destination but great for boaters and divers as you can bring you boat, there is a pool and bbq area. Rooms are super old school .. comfy bed but don't expect a flat screen tv or central a/c .. just window units .. very basic. Friendly staff on the water.

Stayed over for three nights in the high season with clients to see in the local area. Read some of the reports and had to check this Motel out for myself. It's an older Keys property, it's clean and the rooms are spacious. You have the use of a full kitchen and the fridge is large, not a mini-bar affair...

Super great location right next to beach; lanai and front window looked out to Beach and Atlantic Ocean; watched sunset and sunrise from front lanai. Owner was very friendly and nice. Our room was about 10 feet from Atlantic beach. Room was nice and clean; quaint 1950's style as most of Florida Keys is. Adding to 1950's quaintness was even...

I stayed at the Harbor Lights Inn while on a bicycle tour of the Florida Keys with my brother. We were looking for adequate, inexpensive overnight accommodations. We got just that. We stayed in a cabin with a kitchenette which was very helpful because of needing to store two bikes and all of our gear. The property is somewhat dated,...
