This motel is affordable, peaceful and cute! It is great for boaters. There is a quiet pool area beautifully landscaped. The office was very friendly and helpful. Great location! The room had a kitchen and 2 beds which was very clean. I would stay there again.

This was our first time to the keys and we happened upon this place. What a gem! We stayed another night in Marathon because the room was so awesome in every aspect. The ambiance,the cleanliness, the location...it was cozy and comfy. There's a boat dock outside the sliding back door which was tiled and spotless with benches to sit and relax. The pool was sparkling and spotless and surrounded in beautiful foliage. When we walked in the room was cool and smelled wonderful. Its old. ..50's style...but kept up and updated wonderfully! These people know what they are doing. Next time we visit the keys we plan on basing our visit from there! The only thing I would have wanted different was a king bed instead of two doubles, but that is just personal preference. Great job Royal Hawaiian management/owners!

We have been visiting the Keys every year for the last 23 years, we used to camp nearby and we had also stayed at some bed & breakfast places, but for the last two years we had stayed at the Royal Hawaiian Motel, not only for the convenience of having our boat docked right outside our room with easy access to either the Bay of Florida or the Atlantic, but also for the beauty of this cute motel. The Royal Hawaiian is located in Marathon, close to restaurants, dive shops, grocery stores, etc. The rooms at the motel are cozy and very clean, with very comfortable beds. Our number 5 room had been just refurbished recently and the owners were renovating room number 3 while we were there. You may also get a larger room with a fully equipped kitchen to accommodate a longer stay.The managers are very friendly as the owners of the motel are as well, always eager to please their guests, their hospitality is remarkable.The pool and the landscaping make you feel you are in paradise. We will recommend this motel if what you are looking for is a clean, affordable, comfortable place to stay with a real "Florida Keys" feeling like atmosphere.

I stayed at the location from Oct. 11 through Oct. 16th with my girlfriend. We were welcomed as soon as we pulled in the parking area. The owners and managers were always there when you needed them. The room is an older room but was very clean and very comfortable. The nice part about the visit was the free dock space just steps from the back door of the hotel room. You could actually hand stuff out to the boat from the back door of your room. I look forward to staying at this location in the future so I can find more Florida lobsters.

We spent the week of Sept 18 thru the 25th, and had the best weather. Our room was #4 which had the hotel fridge and microwave which is all we needed, we brought stuff for sandwiches so we didn't have to eat out every meal. Our beds were so comfy and smelled so fresh, the motel is older but so clean. When they say your right on the water that's no joke.We loved opening the sliding glass doors and your right on a dock. We fished there and caught keeper fish. Also you can watch tropical fish swimming around the the boat ramp.The swimming pool was clean and very refreshing. The air conditioning is a wall unit and keep us nice and cool. One of our fishing poles broke and Phil was happy to lend us one for the week Marathon is a great Key to base out of since it's in the middle, day trips to other Keys is easy from there. The Visitor Center is right next door, be sure to ask them for places to go and coupons. We had such a great vacation and will stay here again. Thanks to Phil and Laura

Room Tip: If you don't want to be cooking , save your money and don't get the kitchen.
