Disgusting,dirty,and unsanitary. No excuse for the lack of cleanliness I can take old simple accommodations but not this! I would pay not to stay at this place ever again, it's $99 value price for accommodations in the Keys is not worth it! Your first impression when driving in is 1/3 of whats left of a tiki hut old rusted broken... More

We have stayed there for the last 12 years and it changed hands a few years ago and has went downhill ever since. Mark the owner is more interested in adding RV sites than keeping up the rooms he has. We had a verbal agreement on the 2 rooms we rented, for a week, but when we got there he... More

My fiancé and I had booked a weekend at another motel in the Upper Keys and were horrified with what we found when we arrived. It was Easter weekend and everything else was booked. We found the Bonefish Bay Motel (not to be confused with the Bonefish Resort, also in Marathon) on the internet, and called and spoke with the... More

We drove down in March and met two other couples there. We were looking for a reasonable place to meet our friends and decided we would rather that most of our budget and time would be spent on snokeling, fishing, eating out and at the Beaches then on high priced accomadations. The Bonefish Bay Motel gave us a great price... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Keys for a business trip and were trying to find an affordable place to stay. After calling many places that were booked due to spring break I called Mark the owner of the motel and he pressured me into giving him my VISA info to book a room because it was "going fast"....

There are two Bonefish places near one another: Bonefish Bay Motel and Bonefish Resort. We stayed in Bonefish Bay Motel and it was the worse place I've stayed in decades! It was FILTHY (hair and dirt accumulation along the baseboard in the bathroom, for instance), both windows' hardware was broken and couldn't be closed, the sheets and carpet were stained... More

The bonefish in Duck KEY is simply put... GROSS and NASTY! The one in Marathon which Mark owns is nice. It has a boat dock the one in Duck Key does not. I am seeing that some are getting the 2 confused. Stay away from DUCK Key Bonefish. Not sure why the health dept has not shut it DOWN. Funny... More

The location of this motel is ideal especially if you are doing fishing in the Keys. We were not fishing but it was still an easy drive into Key West which was the primary destination on this trip. The cabin was nice and clean with two double beds, cable tv, a bathroom and a kitchenette with a stove/oven, microwave, sink,... More

We found this place by accident ( March 19, 2012) and scored the last room Mark Fleer had, a large efficiency. The room was clean, the kitchen perfect, the living room and dining area huge for a motel, and the view from the king-size bed from the large window facing the water was wonderful. We could see the dock, the... More
