We spent 5 nights at this wonderful property. We were hesitant after reading some bad reviews. These were obviously written by people expecting a five star hotel for a two star price. This is the old style Keys. Ourspacious room had a separate bedroom and a full kitchen with dining area. There were 2 TVs, one in the bedroom and... More

The room was nice with a fridge, stove, sink, and microwave! There was a tv, one bed and one futon bed inside. The room was clean and did... More

I called this place last minute after not finding a room at some of my other places I stay. The customer service on the phone was perfect! I arrived and got a nice room that was large, had a kitchenette, couch and private entrance. The staff were more than gracious and gave me a lot of ideas of fun things... More

My husband and I found this Inn about 15 years ago on a whim, and we have been coming back ever since. The location is perfect for anyone who likes to enjoy the REAL Florida Keys. If you are looking for a spa with an overpriced view, go to the Cheeca Lodge. The Yellowtail is a perfect sleep spot for... More

I stayed here fully expecting the place to be a dump per the reviews on TripAdvisor. I have worked in the resort rental business for 17 years so things unnoticed by others are most likely noticed by me. We arrived and the check in was easy. We stayed in 104 above the office, oceanfront. The unit was not as bad... More

For starters, their website is very deceiving! We checked in for a 2-night stay. It quickly became evident why their rooms are non-refundable. We were stuck staying the first night; but, were thankfully able to find another hotel for the second night (yes, I lost my money; but, I didn't care!). The room was filthy, with dust-covered walls and ceilings,... More
