Stayed here with the family. The room was tiny on the inside and kinda shaby. The main bed was super comfortable. The fold out bed in the couch was aweful. 3 days stay and no house keeping stopped in for cleaning or fresh towels. Very hard to find. Just remember first left when you get into little torch key heading...

Stayed 3/5-3/7. Had 1 bedroom with sleeper sofa. Cost was $200/night. Cramped quarters for 4 people. Only 2 coffee mugs so some had to wait or do without. Bathroom tiny with louvered door so your business was everyone's business. The crowning touch were the hundreds of mosquitoes in the rooms. When we checked out and informed management about insects the...

If you are cycling in the keys, prevailing winds are at your back heading to Key West, but obviously working against you on the way back. So we decided to take 3 days to come back, rather than the 2 to go down. Finding a place 1/3 of the way was a challenge, as there is not much available. Dolphin...

Beautiful water views, good location in the Florida Keys, clean rooms, fresh paint, cute screened in porch. That being said, The structure of the buildings are old and just need to be torn down and rebuilt. The owners have done everything they can to make the rooms as nice as they can with out really addressing the problems. Our room...

Let's start with the positives. The owner was lovely and let us in real early the room we had (habiscus 3) was clean but very very tired. Toiletries were lovely and it had been painted but the furniture was very poor.

My husband and I did not stay here however we fueled our boat each day at their facility . The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The pumps had easy access and the store stayed stocked during the busy lobster season. This location also has non ethanol fuel for about a $1.00 more a gallon.

Convenient stop to gas up but very narrow. Beware of clerk at cash register at marina gas station. She is a poor representative of customer service for marina. During the last 5 years we've been coming to this marina every summer & she has always been rude and nasty to our family. This despite our efforts to be friendly and...

Visited this area for work, but brought my dad so he could fish. He absolutely loved it. The rooms are not overly modern but they are perfect for a quick getaway. Beach is nice, people in the shop are friendly and accommodating.

The room was nice, but the place was nigh impossible to find. Sign was hard to see from the road. While the room was nice, the facilities were a bit of a bummer. We faced a hedge - and right beyond the hedge was a filled-to-the-brim dumpster. Not high on the 'charming' quotient.
