This is a very basic hotel. Rooms are dated, furniture old. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. We stayed two nights, but no extra towels or maid service after the first night. We would have had an issue with a very noisy window air conditioner, but the evening temperatures allowed the A/C unit to be turned off without discomfort. We...

Started off baddly when we went to the address given to us on the reservation confirmation and it turned out to be 1 mile north. Got there at 2:30 and a sign on the door said back at 3:00. Someone else was there who had driven 20 hours and had been told they couldn't check in because they had to...

The "motel" was the worst place I have ever stayed. Right on the highway so you can hear every car that drove by, trucks actually shook the place. Terrible bed, mattress was so soft in the middle it almost folded. No headboard so the pillows fell off and once they hit the ground you didn't want to pick them up...

Room was spacious and clean. The owner was friendly and recommended a great seafood restaurant! Loved floating on the boats. The bed was a little too hard for our tastes. The shower was on the small side, but then it was retrofitted into an old boat. So I guess we should be happy with the private bathroom. Could've used more...

A floating "houseboat" is not something most people would consider, but we were intrigued by an attractive photograph and relative affordability on expensive Marathon Key. 1st impressions were not great: broken windows and no water view from within the boat, sketchy mattress and old furnishings, WIFI only in the "common area", which in this case was a couple of well...

Due to a lack of planning on our part, we found ourselves in a crunch and this was the only hotel around that still had a vacancy. Now I see why. They jacked up the price to $370/night during the busy holiday week. We stayed in room 4 in the front building. It was HORRIBLE. Sloppily patched holes in the...

It cist over $110 per night and the room had garbage under the beds. No maid service the whole 4 days. Had to ask for towels. The table had a quilt on it for a table cloth. The bathroom drain was loose and the wood warped. Exposed wires lead to a TV that was on top of a dresser It...

Loved the idea of a houseboat but can't described how disappointed we were. The room was so dirty. I moved the bed to use the receptacle and boy I wish I hadn't. There must have been a years dirt and debris behind it. There was rust on the case stand and the worst thing was the shower. The shower controls...

What a cool place! Sleeping in your own boat so cool. Nothing fancy here though. Place is clean but needs updating. Everything works though - fridge, freezer, microwave, shower. Never turned the tv on so don't know about that. Nice long dock able to see many jellyfish 😊 Husband fished off the boat and dock.
