The Sea Dell Motel is right in the middle of things on the Overseas Highway in Marathon. Reasonably priced and very clean. Super fast internet, too. Locally-owned, friendly staff, decent little pool and nicer rooms than you'd expect for the price. Not the latest & greatest, but still nice. And very nice for the price. Enjoyed my stay and would...

Clean, well maintained rooms with coffee machine with complimentary coffee, fridge and comfortable bed. Friendly and helpful staff, quickly answering any questions. List of eateries nearby provided at check-in, as well as plenty of advertising booklets for activities you might like. Central location, nice for exploring Florida Keys. Feeling of the last century travel vibes :) Probably the price was...

If you like great landscaping, not worrying about having people staying above or below you, great service and nice rooms for a very reasonable price, then you want to stay here!!! My family and I were very impressed with the room we stayed in and they have nice landscaping and tables, chairs, etc. out front of the rooms. Very clean...

The motel personnel were very friendly and helpful, but the room was very small and very dark. Lighting over the bed was insufficient for reading and there was no lamp at all on one side. The bathroom was tiny with no space for toiletries.

This felt like going back to old Florida. The big chains have moved in and resorts dominate the area but the Sea Dell retains the charm and comfort of an earlier time. Very comfortable and immaculately clean.

To be honest, if I could I would have given this 3 and a half, it's better than average, good but not very good. It sits just off the Overseas Highway, rooms are small but clean and comfy, there is parking and a small pool, there's also a guest laundry, and a little space to sit outside but not much....
