Not bad!

Our room included a kitchen area which was a huge bonus. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The only problem was that the pipes made an extremely high pitched noise, randomly, all night. Hopefully that will be fixed soon. Other than that, good place!

Bring your own stuff

When I say bring your own stuff I'm talking your own towels and maybe sheets, because I wouldn't even use the towels hung up on the towel rack thank heaven I had just washed our car towels and we used those instead didn't bring any sheets (wish I would have) the ones on the bed you could see through and had black stains. Great location. Great sunsets. They just need to put a little more money into the motel part of the property.

Not a resort!

A rather small seedy looking motel right out of the Sixties. First impression makes you want to go someplace else. After seeing the room you decide to accept to put up with it for one night...

Good News/Bad News

Good news- this motel is centrally located in the Keys and is lociated close to grocery stores and restaurants and beaches. It pool at the "resort" is quite nice and heated. There is a lovely view of the water from the far end of the property from a manufactured beach where there are spectacular sunsets. The bad news- while the bathrooms have been remodeled, the sleeping area has not. The room was drab with woren, faded bedspreads and windows too high to see out of with gray painted walls. Housekeeping left much to be desired. The tile floow was so dirty that going barefoot resulted in the soles of feet being black. My stained sheet (though it appreared to have been washed) was not replaced on the bed after I left it on the floor; a new sheet was left folded on my pillow. Nothing was ever straightened in the room and the old coffee pak was left in the coffe pot each day. When I could not connect to the WIFI, I was told it must be a problem with my I Pad (though I could connect at the McDonalds) becuse no one else had complained. Amenities were few- no hair dryer or kleenx and just soap and shampoo.
