Bonefish Bay Motel & RV's
Ranked #11 of 17 Marathon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 February 2017

We've visited here many times and have stayed in many of the rooms as well as in RV spots, and while I've always loved this resort, I was really impressed with the new rooms as well as the overall cleanliness and hospitality of our hosts. The beds were very comfy, room was super clean, lots of landscaping upgrades, and Mark and Karen couldn't have been nicer! Love the facelift, this is my home away from home❤️

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!

An entire new building has been constructed and just opened with tastefully decorated efficiency rooms. The motel shares the property with upscale RVs and has waterfront access with boat ramp and dockage. Enjoyed the Thursday Night Potluck dinner with other guests! Everyone was very friendly and it the property has the feeling of a nice quite neighborhood. Thoroughly enjoyed my time here...the hosts are great

DO NOT STAY HERE. If I could give it zero stars I would. This has been the worst hotel experience ever. The price may be low but it is for a reason. The Lock on the front door did not work, there were dead insects ALL over the room, the room was filthy from top to bottom, and to top it all off the owner is rude to say the least. He charged us for people just visiting, not even staying the night. And he keeps his boat right in the center of his dock, making it a pain for all visitors to get their boats in and out of the water. The beds were filthy, I don't think they ever wash the sheets. We had to go out and buy our own because they looked so gross. And there is no free wifi! They advertise it all over but I wasn't able to pick up the wifi once. I have never been treated with such disrespect at any hotel or motel I have ever been to. Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra dollars for a much better experience.

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We do our best but can't allow unlimited guests to use our facilities when they are not registered here. We feel that our prices are competitive and didn't charge a resort fee for unregistered guests. The rules of the motel need to be enforced and no disrespect is ever intended. Other guests staying here need to be considered by the management also. Extra guests that used the facility were not charged resort fees, only guests that stayed here and were not originally registered were charged for staying overnight. The door lock was repaired within the hour after the damage was reported. The room was cleaned by housekeeping the same day of your arrival and no bugs have been seen. The room is exterminated on a monthly basis. We are a small motel with limited dockage with a boat ramp and we try to accommodate all of our guests dockage needs. The owner does keep his boat on a slip but it is one of the least desirable and he will trailer his boat if necessary. The bed and linens are only 2 months old so not sure what the problem was with the bedding. We do have free Wi-Fi. If there was a problem with login the office should have been informed so the problem could be resolved.

This place was very good value.. The pool was nice and the dock was the best. Mark really appreciates his customers and was willing to help us. I can't wait for the new building to open. We stayed in a one bedroom bungalow. It had everything we could ask for..

Room Tip: When the new building opens stay there.
