Just returned from another stay at the Royal Hawaiian Motel in the Florida Keys (Marathon). As usual had a great time... room nice and clean and conveniently located for the boater. Boat docked right behind the room, ramp on premises, clean pool, fish cleaning station and a place to barbecue if you desire. Have stayed here before and will continue...

It COULD have been a hoot!. 40;s 50;s decor, pleasant old furnishings, and funky, My being a senior, this reminded me of the 40s/50s cabin type motels you found along the Florida highways post W.W.II. I was really excited to experience nostalgia of years gone by! Everything was clean, even the "fragrance" reminding me of the old lysol that was...

We spent a lovely time in this boatel/motel. The dock is right behind your room which makes it an excellent choice for avid fishing families. Some rooms are equipped with a kitchen and utensils, the air condition works non stop, a plus when you return from a day at sea. The pool is very refreshing and also a value add....

When I found the place I was a little nervous because it is very small and looked worn. However, when I walked into the room I was greeted by a pleasant, fresh smell, clean linens, just enough space, and a pleasant view out the back slider of the docks. You can come by car or boat and have a place...

Very clean rooms, stocked kitchen and loaner fishing rods, you can't beat that in the Keys. The canal for your boat is clean and deep, plenty of room for docking. I highly recommend the Royal Hawaiian.

When most of the high priced places were full and we needed a place to stay, the Royal Hawaiian was there with a lovely large room that the two couples in our party were able to share comfortably. The place is enveloped in beautiful plantings on three sides, with a small deck over the waterway on the remaining side. An...

We stayed three nights the first week of March 2014 in a unit with a kitchenette and 2 double beds (and there was a fold up cot). It was very clean, quiet even though it's by the main road. (The lush landscaping may help.) The sliding door opened up to a deck right beside the canal where we could have...

Enjoyed staying at Royal Hawaiian - the motel/botel had character and you can't beat the price. The location was perfect for us. The room was clean and the beds were good. The only downside was the housekeeping - they didn't clean your room up daily or make your beds. They replenished your coffee and gave you new towels. However, to...
