Royal Hawaiian Motel / Botel
Ranked #4 of 17 Marathon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 June 2017

We came back to visit the Beautiful Florida keys and returned to the Royal Hawaiian. I can't say enough good things about the place, we got to meet the owners who are very hands on Marilyn and Dennis, the managers are also very accommodating and very nice. I would recommend it and we will visit again in a couple of years!

Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!

Great old Florida style Keys motel. You can launch and dock your boat for free iF you stay at the motel. Managers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Book early there are only 8 rooms and limited dockspace.

Took my daughter on a graduation trip to the Keys and we stayed here for a long weekend. The location is perfect - right near all kinds of things to do and the nicest beach in the Keys is right down the road (Sombrero Beach)! The room was large and clean and loved the boat dock out the backdoor. The picnic/bbq area on the water was a really pleasant place to sit. I liked how we could park right in front of our room. If only I had a boat to park out back! Was a great stay and would def go there again!

Total 1950's iconic Keys style motel. Three of us girls had a blast. Kim and Steve were delightful hosts. If we had a boat - we could have been on the water in a minute!
Everything was close by. This place was super clean. Thanks Kim and Steve for making it a wonderful girl trip!

Room Tip: All rooms have a water view.

Only a few rooms but ours, room 2 was huge! bathroom is tiny but it does the job. Very clean and safe. I stayed here with my 2 10 year old boys, and the fishing was so great. You walk out the sliding glass door right onto the docks! Great for divers too. It is not fancy but very fitting with the rustic island style. If you want to feel pampered and have turn down service, look somewhere else, but if you need an affordable place for your family that adds to your vacation, check this cute place out. Our room, (2) could have easily been a perfect place for a week long stay. Great pool, quiet. This is our go to for all of our upcoming Key vacations!

Room Tip: The higher the room number the closer to the pool.
