Let's face it, nowhere to stay in Key West is cheap.The Blue Marlin, however, is good value. The location suited us well being in the quieter part, kids loved the good sized pool, rooms and the property were very clean and breakfast very adequate. The receptionists were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Parking in the area...

We stayed at the Blue Marlin for one night. We choose this motel based off price and location - one block from Duvall and the quieter south side of Key West. Less than a 5-minute walk to Southernmost Marker and it’s near the Hemmingway House/Lighthouse. If you don’t have mobility issues it is an easy stroll all the way down...

Spacious rooms, with fridge and microwave. A complementary micro popcorn package is left daily which is nice if you like popcorn. The breakfast is ok, with some bread and youghurt. Coffee and fruit is also on the menu. The hotel is close to the south beach as well as the Duval street. The Truman little white house is about a...

At the quieter end of Key West but perfectly placed for walking to all the areas. Duval Street a block away and the southern most point the same. Very clean room and nice room cleaners. Laundry facilities on site and very welcome if you are travelling. Good pool and plenty of space. I see others have complained about breakfast but...

This motel was just what I was looking for: very clean large room with a fridge and very nice bathroom. Very close to the Southernmost End with great places to eat and shop near by. 2 blocks from the public beach. The pool was perfect temperature. I will stay here again.

The pool is very nice and well taken care of, that was the kids favourite. The breakfast was not top of the line exactly, The location is within easy walking distance everywhere, but still outside the buzz from the tourist trap's. This is not a fancy new hotel, but a motel, but everything is clean. Would stay ther again.

We had a two queen room. Room was clean and well maintained. Greeted at check in and was quickly in my room. They provide coffee and popcorn in each room. Also a mini-fridge for beverages. Breakfast is provided by the pool 7-9 each morning. Not fancy, but something to get you going for the day. Location was near the buoy....
