Driving into the resort transports you to a simpler time. It is very laid back in its appearance. Rooms are large, but include a coffee pot, microwave and small fridge. (There are also units with kitchenettes) Everyone we met was friendly --- and easy to talk to, almost like being on a cruise ship. The attached marina was a great...

We didn't want to pay to stay at key West. This was convenient but very basic. The room was large. There is a restaurant next door and easy to walk to from your ròom. The staff was friendly. There weren't a lot of people so it was quiet. There is a marina but we didn't need it.

The Blackfin is an older property where the owners have clearly worked hard to maintain things without doing much in terms of updating.We had what I think was probably their most basic efficiency, it had a double bed that was ok but not great. Small fridge, cooktop, bathroom with huge shower to accommodate someone in a wheelchair. In the wall...

We looked for a reasonably priced motel in Marathon for one night where we could stay with our dog. The motel is older but well furnished and very clean. The pet fee was $5 which, for those of us who travel with a pet, is almost unheard of. We did walk down past the harbor and were about to enjoy...

Staff was very friendly. Room clean, mini fridge, microwave. We prefer to stay at non chains when visiting places like Marathon, we are not here to sit in our room. But we still like clean and comfortable accommodations. Blackfin did that. Nice short walk to the water-Gulf side, great sunsets or watch the day start even better. Use the grill...

Great place to stay - friendly staff, great pier/grilling area on the water, and very convenient. The resort itself is beautiful and somewhat historic, and the Hurricane Grill next door was great as well. Loved our stay there

Eating, drinking and enjoying the islands...Black Fin was excellent for this! Hurricane bar/restaurant was RIGHT THERE and provided excellent coverage for many meals and drinks. Place was clean and allowed our 5 pound Yorkie to stay. Nice to have fridge.

The hubz and I just spent 4 days at BlackFin and it was very nice! Very laid back, no drama, just the kind of place we like. Room was not huge, but very clean, bathroom updated, microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker with good coffee in the room. The property is lovingly maintained, the pool area was very nice, beautifully...

The staff was very helpful and friendly and despite it being an older hotel, it was clean and had been well maintained with some newer touches. We were just passing through town this time and just needed something basic and this was more than that. We had reliable WiFi and were close to lots of restaurants. Older AC unit was...

We liked everything..from the room, to the resort, to the staff that was very nice and helpful. I dint give five because at the swimming pool there was a not very pleasant smell...but nothing too bad. Overall a good experience.
