Staying at the Royal Hawaiian Botel was like home away from home. My husband, myself and 2 children ages 8 and 9 stayed in a kitchenette. We were in Marathon to fish and relax. Our boat was directly outside our door. The room was super clean, and contained everything we needed for a family of 4 to prepare meals and...

A friend and I stayed here for a week at the end of June 2015. Excellent location for fishing access to the bay or reef. My boat was only two steps out the sliding glass door. Room was perfectly cleaned each day when we returned from the water. The management on site were very helpful and super friendly.

Clean rooms and great access to the bayside or Atlantic side via the Vaca Cut. What made it extra special were the couple running the place. They were very friendly and helpful. If you needed anything they were always right there. Highly recommend this place if you are doing some fishing and want to walk out of your room and...

If you are heading to the Keys for fishing or diving, I don't know of a better location. Located minutes to Vaca Cut at the South end of Marathon allows easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic sides of the Middle Keys. The managers of the Royal Hawaiian are among the best you will find! I will definitely return! Clean,...

The managers were friendly and very helpful - hard workers! The room was basic but clean. Loved having the back sliding door open to a pier on the canal. Located only a couple of miles from a great beach - Sombrero Beach, and very near the 7 mile bridge.

We spent two nights here and were very comfortable. Nice and clean. It was lovely having two doors, one handy to your car and the other opening right beside the water. A clean and well maintained pool and very friendly owners.

This was exactly what we were looking for. A quiet, clean room, with fishing outside our door in the canal. We enjoyed the clean refreshing pool daily. The Royal Hawaiian is located close to many restaurants, marinas, Sombrero Beach and shopping. Steve and Kim were great hosts with lots of knowledge about the area. The motel is old style Florida...
