(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...

Yes, it's no frills but it's also very private, quiet and safe and cheap. I just sit on the deck and watch sunrises and sunsets & fish all day. Exactly what I was looking for as a quick weekend getaway alone. I love the place.

We stayed in a "floating room", which is a converted houseboat, way overpriced. They gut a derelict houseboat, paint over the windows, throw in a bed, small refrigerator and a TV. Positives: The TV worked, but there was no way to adjust the volume. Fortunately, it was set to LOUD, so no problem hearing it. Sink with running water, real...

The ugly and dirty rooms we have ever see! At 200US$ the night we expected more than a dirty bathroom, not washed sheets and ..... No need to describe more the room 3 or 7 in the bungalows!!! We let the owner (or his representative) asking him to wash, to clean and we ran far (avoid to book this hotel...

Customer checked into motel and came back to the office complaining that she had reserved a room with a King Size Bed. I showed her her reservation which she made at Booking.com and it was clearly marked as a double room with two double beds. She claimed that the Booking.com site said it had King Size Beds which was impossible...

I was suggested the property from a local diner. Upon arrival I noted the grounds were clean and the Old Florida Key feeling was present. I was greeted by the onsite manager who was very friendly and allowed me to view both the floating accommodations as well the the bungalow. Both were a little dated but exactly what I had...

We stayed here because everything else in Marathon was booked up. We would have been better off staying in our car for the night. They are in business because of the lack of available rooms in the area. The room was moldy and broken down. Fixtures in the bathroom were literally broken and falling off the wall. The room was...
