Nice location on the waterfront and friendly staff.

The property has a beautiful area with palm trees overlooking the ocean.

We loved the retro style of the resort. The unit was clean and roomy. The grounds were beautiful. Loved watching the boats come and go.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at Drop Anchor.

Friendly service, clean rooms rooms were a bit small with limited room to put stuff.

Drop Anchor is conveniently located to everything, however has no beach access. You are at waterfront with beautiful sunsets and scenery. If you are on the ground floor you have it made, but the rooms go quick, so book early (they have only 18 rooms). The rooms are older with window unit type A/C's that run endlessly & are rather loud, but you will get use to this within a day or so. If you are not "living in the hotel room" the actual room should not matter, but it could stand to be cleaned a little better.... (enough said....). What takes away any/all of anything less than all stars are the hotel people. They want you to be HAPPY and will do most anything to accommodate you ♥ They take pride in providing the best!!! This type of staff is what takes the cake of it ALL for me!!! They truly care --- 100%!!!

Quiet, clean. Pleasant staff. Would go back. Beautiful views.

The hotel was clean and the staff was very nice the hotel is on the sea

Third time staying at the Drop Anchor. Always a good experience with staff, the rooms, and the location is perfect.

The Pool, and outdoor games let the kids busy. Our floor was never mopped or cleaned- my husband had to sweep it. Our feet were black from the floors

We really enjoyed out stay and this quaint waterfront Inn They Need to update the bathroom in unit 1 to match the rest of the unit. Would stay again.

Very clean. Whole staff is friendly and accommodating. Ground are well maintained. So much better then a chain hotel. Go here and support the locals.

This would be a great place to stay if you have a boat, but the pictures made it look like there was a beach which there was not. There are some very nice patio chairs and a pool on the water, but it is essentially just a boat drop. The room and amenities were mostly okay. The room's AC unit was so loud it prevented us from sleeping. The room sounded like an air plane hanger. Also the hotel is about 30-50 ft from US1 and not as secluded as we thought.

We stayed overnight Was comfortable and quaint Staff nice

Great view! The Drop Anchor is not the Cheeca but the room was nice and the view is great, it has an unobstructed view of the ocean side. We would definitely stay here again when returning to Islamorada.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your honest and outstanding review. We take this to hart and truly are working to make improvements on the property. As for the AC's, we are working on replacing them all with split airs or "silent" air conditioners. We know that you will join us again and appreciate all your feed back!
