Having stayed in many motels, hotels, hostels, B&B's, homestays, etc... this is the second time I have ever felt motivated to make a recommendation. It is an old style place, clean and functional. I laid in bed while watching the sun shine on palm trees fluttering in the wind. My room was small, as was the price. The room amenities...

Everything was truly pleasant from booking until check out.This is a peaceful, beautiful resort with a helpful yet invisible staff.Very low key with friendly, happy guests. My boyfriend and I made some great connections. I would love to come back anytime in the future... Sincerely, Mary

Mike and Stephanie went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We only stayed one night on this trip but would consider using it as a home base for future trips to the Keys. The grounds are lovely, you can walk to several restaurants, and the Dolphin Research Center is only 100 yards down the road. Very nice...

My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights. Great little family run hotel, that is very relaxing and low key. (Dog and kid friendly) Good location in the middle keys to get to Key West or other keys for day trips. We always made sure to be back before sunset, to watch the sun go down with our friends....

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights, and found it a very clean, comfortable, covenant and friendly place. It is an older hotel, but has everything you need and it all works. We enjoyed the kayaking in the gulf right in front. The location is convenient to amenities in Marathon (e.g., stores, golf course) and is a easy...

Nothing was as advertised. A waste of money. Living area consisted of 2 uncomfortable futons and a TV so small you could hardly see it. Sliding screen door was off the track and very difficult to open. Communal balcony was furnished with a concrete table and bench. So disappointing.

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the Keys. Gulf View Waterfront Resort was just what we needed. As the name says, the property is waterfront, right on the Gulf. We were welcomed by the owner who brought us right to our room when we checked in. The property was beautiful and "eco-friendly". Loved the talking Cockatoo and...

Old style hotel, friendly staff on the gulf for those great sunsets. Clean with a kitchenette. Nice property with pool. They can make improvements by adding a small side table next to the bathroom sink & adding a luggage rack. The only real negative were the sheets that would not stay on the bed. Hello owners.....an easy fix. I'd stay...

We stayed at the Gulf View Resort for one night while cycling the Keys. When we arrived at the office, there was our name on the welcome sign! Mike was very friendly and helpful as we checked in, then he brought us to our room. The room was absolutely clean. It was on the road side of the building, but...

Our third visit to this hotel and it is always clean and well maintained. We love that is not a franchise and they are very accomodating. They have large birds and a tortoise that my children love. A great place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle.
