Budget Motel that doesn't make the grade at all. Don't stay here. Stayed in cottage and it was in bad shape. It's not that this place needs updating because it's older it needs total refurbishment. Beach was stark, only a couple older chairs available. Just not a good experience.

Had the "Penthouse" with spacious accommodations. Older property but had everything we needed. It's not 5 star but not 5 star prices either. It was clean. Gorgeous view, fabulous sunrise location, and enough room for 8. Close enough to fun times and far enough from the traffic. Would visit again. These are my pictures.

We spent 3 nights recently over Thanksgiving Weekend. Since this was a last minute decision we found this place about 3 weeks before Thanksgiving since the usual place we stayed at was booked. The place could really be an outstanding location if the owner reinvested some of the money into the property. If you are looking for a Marriott or...

THEY STOLE $661.51 FROM ME! I have been trying to get it back forever. I booked well in advance but cancelled a week later. They gave me a cancellation number but they never returned my money.

Disappointed that I spent over $600 for the week. All the pictures must have been years ago, very dirty and unkempt. The maid did not change our bedding the whole time we were there. If your expecting a pool... There is no pool to swim in, it appears that it has been empty with yellow tape on it for years....

If you want a 5 star luxury resort, then go to the famous named ones down the road. If you want to capture the essence of old Florida Keys then take a step back in time in this sweet, very clean and very quaint little jewel of an inn! I visited my great grandparents all through my childhood in the...

It is true that you get what you pay for generally, but in this case it is not. Following, this experience we stayed in a whole host of hotels in a similar price range - £110 per night/ $160 approx and we got much much better comfort and quality. This place was so bad, that if they were charging 'peanuts'...

The board of health definitely needs to make a visit to this property!! It is the dirtiest most undermaintaned places have ever visited. The curtain rod which happened to actually be a PVC pipe fell on my husband's head in the middle of the night. We slept on towels because the sheets were blood stained and ripped on a bed...

I think you need to have realistic expectations when staying anywhere in the keys. If you are used to the Marriot or Hyatt this is not the place for you. However, we know that many of the accommodations in the keys are older beach style rooms. Yellow tail Inn Is a older, family owned place. There is a small beach...
