This place reminds me of the classic Route 66 places I've seen. Old school charm and decor. If you want the Ritz, this ain't it. But if your looking for a well situated, fun, well decorated keys classic this is perfect. Clean, but small room. Great colors, nice pool, good staff. The only down side was a AC unit that...

It had been 20 years since I had been to my beloved Florida Keys and was shocked at the rates for Key West lodging. Well thanks to fellow Trip Advisor reviews, I found this wonderful motel to fit my needs at less than half the price of the lowest rate in Key West while being centrally located in the Keys....

Just had a 3 night stay. This motel was as expected clean and fresh. New towels and toiletries every day. Fridge and microwave. The king bed was fantastic. We used the pool one afternoon, clean and hot. The location is the best it's minutes to the free public beach and 1 hour from key west. Used this motel it's good.

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...

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.

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...
