We stayed here for two nights as Hurricane Sandy was passing off to the east. Even though the weather was not the best, we had a great stay here at this very charming motel. It reminded me very much of a classic roadside Florida motel from the 60s and 70s. The room was very clean, spacious and well equipped. Our...

The Sea Dell Motel. It's like a trip back into the 1950s. I look for three things in a motel. 1. Clean 2. Safe 3. Comfortable The Sea Dell Motel delivers on all these things! The staff is exceptional and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Now you have to realize that his motel was built in the 1950s...

Great price. Nice pool. Friendly staff. Clean. What else can I say? Not a fancy resort, but who needs the exorbitant fees for simple things like wifi, parking and having someone carry your bags? Would recommend this place to anyone just looking for a nice little motel in the heart of the keys.

Very welcoming reception staff. The room was perfectly fine. Lots of bathroom towels and great water pressure from the shower. Nice outside seating area where in the evening we could hear frogs from a small pond. We were provided with local dining suggestions and menus from these places were available. This is an honest straight forward place to stay.

Me, my husband and another couple recently stayed at this motel. I selected this hotel based on the overall positive reviews on trip advisor. Boy were they right! The room was just about perfect. The only issue I had was the mattress was a little more firm than I'm used but still tolerable. As soon as we walked into the...

This motel is very clean, inside and outside. Staff are very nice & helpful. Price is very reasonable, but I would choose a different motel if I visited the area again because: If you stay here ask to stay in a room that has an entrance in middle area---safer. I stayed in a room where the entrance was behind the...

We stayed here on our way to Key West and liked it. Rooms are spacey and comfortable. Our room had a fridge and i believe thats standard there. The pool was very nice too and heated if i remember correctly. Price was a bit high with $100 (incl.tax) , but this being the Keys i guess bargains are scares here.

Nice place to hang out, the staff is very friendly. The owner is a very nice man, sat with us at our morning coffee almost every morning to have a chat. Personal attention, interested in his guests and taking care of his business. We had an early check-inn, at 10:30AM, which was very nice! Staff was very helpfull and nice....

Arrived quite early at the Sea Dell after what seemed like forever driving from Miami. However this was not a problem and we were soon in our room, changed and by the pool. The motel is located right on highway 1 and superbly located for shops, food and Sombrero Beach. Very clean with a large comfortable bed, an endless supply...
