We came in at 10 pm and were welcomed with open arms! The owner and her granddaughter were wonderful. They were very friendly and we had a nice conversation. The room was very clean and quiet. It had a nice kitchen. We had two beds and paid $157.50.

This place is a little out dated in décor but it is super clean and the staff is so friendly. Nicest and cleanest Motel I have ever stayed at. Family owned and operated. Room smells so clean every day! I would book here again in a heart beat. Can't beat the price either!

The reviews of this motel are true - very clean (if you read my reviews you know this is most important to me!), nice owners. So I won't repeat what others have said, I will add some details. This was my first time to the Keys, and if you need a good quiet place to crash, even with kids, this...

I have stayed here on 3 separate trips into the Keys. Doesn't get much better as road side motels go. Rooms are a bit on the small side. No frills,but always spotless,comfortable,and reasonably priced. I always feel at home here.

Myself and three friends stayed here for a fishing trip, and thoroughly enjoyed this motel and the grounds. Rooms were extremely clean. The owner and her family were the most accommodating Innkeepers I have ever stayed with, will definitely book this motel for our next trip.

The owner is fantastic. The rooms are small and cosy. Bring your own shampo or ask for it at the reception. There are restaurants at walking distance. Make sure to reserve 2-3 days in advance to see the turtles sanctuary.

Ya know you see the word motel and get scared. It's not the Hilton but I can tell you it's the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Not even the doubletree was more clean. Nothing fancy but everything worked, was clean and ice cold air. Very reasonable prices. I stay with buddies when we go fishing but I wouldn't hesitate...

We stayed at this hotel on Valentine's Day - the lady who owns it is really nice. The rooms are very clean. All linens are hung out on a clothesline to dry so the whole property smells like freshly washed sheets. It's on the main road, easy to get too and the price is right for the Keys. Highly recommend...

I'm on a bicycle trip through the American South. Of course I had to bicycle the Overseas Highway to Key West but not in one day. It was MLK weekend and the Keys were filled with tourists. No Vacancy signs were visible for many miles. As you approach Marathon heading south on US 1 you will see the airport on...

Great little hotel, very friendly staff. Place is very clean and quiet room with kitchen is very useful. Loved our stay there will definitely come back. Only small issue is internet is not very reliable, but if you are here on vacation then it doesn't matter.

“Stayed in 5 and 10. Both spotless, 5 roomier and completely updated. 10 sleeps 3 and is at the end, furthest from road. Both great choices.”

“The property is right on the highway, so the vehicular traffic slows down at night but never completely stops. Higher room numbers are further from the road.”
