Hagerstown, Indiana
Reviewed 24 May 2016

Our stay was just one night. We found the room to be clean and modern with comfortable beds. The setting was charming with all the trees. We didn't use the pool but it appeared to be nice and clean. The sunset that evening was beautiful. I would stay there again.

Love this 'oldschool' keys spot that has been updated with modern marine decor. Easy access for your boat. Nice pool, hot tub, BBQ grills, great spot to see the Sunset and possibly even a Green Flash (if you don't know, google) Comfortable rooms, great keys restaurants nearby- The Stuffed Pig, Porky's & Driftwood Pizza.

The resort is small and cute and renovated. The rooms are very nice and clean but what i didn't like was the price. For the size and location I could have stayed in Key west for the same price if not cheaper, the parking is cramped so if you have a truck it will be a little tight. The website...

Truly proves you get what you pay for! This place was clean, rooms were as nice as any upscale hotel. Bed was very comfortable. Will definitely return next time we need a hotel on the way to Key West.

Advertised a Beach but there was no swimming area. Staff could have been more accommodating with very little effort on their part but chose not to be. Pool was nice and large but 'let go'. Deck needs repair in many places. Tiki hut was never open.

We stayed at the motel for several nights in April, and loved it and the location. The room was clean and apparently updated recently, and the bed was comfortable. The resort has a nice pool area, and the staff was very nice. The grounds had been a little run down, but they had already begun work on improving the landscape....
