We just returned from staying 5 nights. We've been going to Islamorada for 20 years for vacation and wanted a new place to stay. The property we used to stay at has doubled in price since adding a famous persons name to it. The Sands has the old Keys charm that we were looking for that seems to be going...

Our room accommodated our family of 5 comfortably, with 2 double beds and a fold-out sofa plus a kitchenette and dining table. It was simple but comfortable. It was right on the water with a little jetty (no beach), pool and spa. On-site car parking was easily accessible. We loved the birds! We drove to Key West for a day...

This is our 5th time for us to stay here. We love the location, We love the fact that they are pet friendly. The rooms are clean but nothing special and the price is ok. My complaint is the owners/mangers act like being a guest there is an inconvenience to them. They rarely answer the phone. It is so hard...

Had a lovely stay here on our way up from Key West to Miami. Nice big rooms and good facilities. Spent the afternoon relaxing down by the waters edge, which was so nice. It is also walking distance to Lazy Days restaurant.

It is a small hotel with a nice garden and beautifull views. There is a swimingpool and a pier where you can sit and enjoy the sea and the palmtrees. Very well maintained property. People who run it are nice and welcoming. Good restaurant within walking distance.

Stayed here for five nights and very pleased. What it's not: fancy, swanky, modern, plush What it is: Quaint, quiet, convenient This is a comfortable old-fashioned motel. It has only nine rooms. We were fortunate to stay in 18 which has an ocean view, it's own patio overlooking the ocean complete with rocking chairs, hammock and table for four. Only...

Enjoyed a brief two night stay at the Sands of Islamorada last weekend. We selected this resort based on favorable reviews and the mid keys location. We had 5 travelers in total, 3 adults and two kids and were very comfortable in room 11 which is a 2 queen suite with living room, dining area and kitchenette. We were pleasantly...

I just recommended Sands of Islamorada to a friend and was reminded of our excellent experiences there. We have stayed twice, once for our anniversary in February last year, and my birthday the following September. I actually booked the room for my birthday during checkout, I knew that that was exactly how I wanted to spend my birthday. Mercy and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An awesome, intimate escape right in the center of the Keys. All of our rooms have recently been refreshed from top to bottom. For a pet & people friendly tropical retreat...This is the spot. This is the kind of place Jimmy Buffett sings about. We are very Keysee and very clean! A sparkling pool and hot-tub with a view of the beach, boat launch and pier, await you. Our rooms and efficiencies can accomodate from 1 to 6 people very comfortably. ... more   less
