I made this reservation at 10pm and called to cancel it at 10:30pm. I had just been told that another hotel lost my reservation and I made this one just in case but then decided it was a mistake. I was extremely frustrated and didn't see that it was non refundable. Out of desperation, I had clicked book even thought...

My bank and credit card services has been going rounds with the owner/manager of the Sea Cove Motel and Marnia. This place is awful, do not sign anything at check-in, demand to see rooms before giving any personal information. He will run your card while you are looking and then say he doesn't know how to refund your money. He...

I'll start by pointing out that this establishment has a two star rating. At no point does it try to deny this or lie about it. From that you pretty much know what you can expect. This was never going to be a Ritz Carlton or Atlantis. We decided to have a long weekend in the Florida Keys with very...

It was memorial day weekend and we were excited about staying on a boat but it turned out to be a nightmare. I was charged $300 for roaches, ants, and termites crawling on us. My son had stayed at this place a couple of years ago and it was ok but it just needed updating then. It has gone downhill...

First, you have to keep the Keys mentality in mind when you come here...simple, simple, simple. These houseboats sit on a small inlet of water; the morning was nice; watching a few dolphin play just off our boat was a nice surprise! The accommodations, clean but so grossly outdated, were disappointing. The furnishings are a mismatch conglomeration from the early...

(2230hrs) ($195.00 1 night) Very bad first impression of office manager/owner. Bungalow was dirty with hair on floor, toilet, sink and tub looked like they were just used. Beds were half made, blinds were broken/missing. Turned down the comforter and sheets and our 10 YO found bugs in bed. Our 7 YO got very upset. Killed one and went to...

I thought staying on a floating houseboat would be a nice experience. The short time we were there was an experience. It was very shabby. The carpet was threadbare and very dirty. The area around the microwave had not been dusted in a while. There was two towels and one washcloth. Trash was still in the trash can in the...

Imagine your self whisked away into your favorite 1970's horror movie. Now take it to a 3rd world country backdrop. Add a little charm. Then there is this place, a combination of all the above. The special parts are really in the details. Ceiling fan? Who needs blades on that? Towels? Here's one, more then one person with you? Good...

We stayed in a bungalow after a quick last min booking. I've stayed in the Keys a million times and hotels/motels are always an experience that is memorable for many reasons. This was interesting. The following pics are one of a ceiling fan; at Walmart a new one is 12 dollars with the actual blades. The next is the smoke...
