First of all thank you for your feedback, and I’m sorry if you didn’t enjoy your stay with us. This is premium oceanfront property in the Florida Keys, and while we realize that our units aren’t compatible with a 5-star hotel, we feel the price is fair. If your needs are for something more than what we offer at the...

Old and dirty towels with holes and dirty linens, the whole property in much need of renovation and very high price. A shame on its great location.around good public parks and good places to eat- Key Fisheries in Marathon and the Fish House in Key largo.

Thanks for the feedback. We are aware of the problems, and are working very hard to bring the hotel up to the level that our guests expect and deserve. We have recently brought in all-new management, as well as a new housekeeping staff. Many of our rooms have been completely renovated, and others are in the renovation process. We are...

The resort is run down and un cared for. Our room was dirty. The windows do not shut so you can hear the road and it makes the a\c ineffective. There were dead bugs around the windows. The smoke detector has been pulled off the wall the handle to close the windows did not attach. The shower had not been...

Thanks for the review. I'm sorry if you had a bad experience with us. I wish you would've alerted the staff to your problems, as we would have moved you to an acceptable room immediately. Hopefully your next visit to the Keys will be more enjoyable.

We were offered 2 rooms, both of which were littered with cockroach droppings! They would not refund our stay even though we only looked at the rooms & were there no more than 1/2 hour total. The "manager" didn't even bat an eye when we told him. Of course that's because he already had our $! Beware of this place,...

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. If you would've been a little patient we could have easily give you a different room. You agreed to our cancellation policy when you made the reservation. Additionally, it really isn't appropriate to slander our other properties that you never saw.

Did not paid attention to past review and booked 1 night in this place which was dirty, towels had holes and roches in the stowe. Only good that can be said it was in a good location. Expensive for what you get.

All of the previous bad reviews are true. We stayed 2 nights (2-11 & 12, 2013) and did not see a clean towel or a made bed. We were told we should have said something. Well when you leave early in the morning to spend the day at Key West and come back after 10 pm there is nobody there...

Checked in around 5pm and unloaded into our room. We had a few small maintenance requests (non working lamp and internet) which the dull front manager did address. The room was dingy and slanted but we planned on staying and making the best of it. We left around 6 to go get a few groceries to make dinner. We came...

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. If you would've alerted our staff earlier in the evening or contacted our office the next day we probably could have done something to make you happy.

This is the worst place I have ever stayed. We booked way ahead of time and had to settle for a MUCH smaller room the first night. The website says snorkeling and such, but at low tide there is NO beach. Smells of fish and even at high tide seaweed and water and mud up to your knees. The pools...

I'm sorry that it has reached this point with these guests. We feel we bent over backwards to accommodate them. When they said the room they originally booked was too small, we gave them a free upgrade to our nicest and largest suite. I don't really understand the comment about there being no beach at low tide, if anything the...

Had a reservation for the Bonfish Resort, which was a companion resort of this one. When we arrvied to check in were told that they had upgraded us to a nicer room at the YellowTail Inn.

I'm sorry if you didn't like your stay but frankly economy prices get you an economy room. We did go out of our way to give you a free upgrade to an oceanfront room. Obviously our suites and condos are more expensive.

I read the reviews and decided to stay any way. The attendant at the front desk upgraded us after the room we wanted was not avalible. The place is old, but decorated nice. Our stay was comfortable. We did not see any bugs, however we did see lots of iguanas! We thought that was cool. The view from our room...
