The Room was lovely, loved the flooring and furniture finishing. However the microwave was dirty seems like it hasn't cleaned for months, 2 cups left in room for guests to used (not disposable) my husband and I used the cups in the morning to have coffee and we asked for room to be cleaned, when we returned the dirty cips were not replaced with clean ones. I had no soap to take a shower the morning when we were supposed to check out. Housekeeping is terrible.

This is a good hotel that with a few tweaks could be amazing. Love the quiet zone policy, but would love it more if it was enforced. It'd be nice to know about the roam towing in advance. (Not a problem if you have your parking pass, but still a little surprising to see a tow truck trolling the premises at 9PM on Saturday.) It'd be nice to have an after hours line to call for issues. Otherwise, room was clean, nicely updated and had a very nice kitchenette (full fridge, plates, utensils, some cooking ware and a microwave). Our room looked right out onto the water. Paddle boards and kayaks were available for use. If it had a restaurant or bar with food, we would have never left the premises!

Great property, well maintained. Outdoor area is nice. Kayaks, paddle boards, bbq area. You can snorkel under the dock and it’s not too bad. Saw lobsters, fish, crabs. Shallow and kid friendly. Enjoyed our stay. Only complaint is that they charge more for ice then the store. Should be a better price for guests if not included.

Beautiful spot! Extremely nice staff! Not at all difficult to get in and out even with heavy traffic. Very quiet peaceful spot.

Nice location bay-side. Great staff the exceed our expectations. Nice amenities and paddle boards and kayaks to use included in the cost, no hidden fees.

The beach is the best part. It’s small but peaceful and family friendly with lots of shade. It’s great for swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding all week long, for free!!! The rooms are old (1950s), but clean and recently updated. There is no restaurant or lobby or game room. But you can drive to fun restaurants and activities in 10 to 15 minutes. Some units have a very small kitchen counter with a hot plate, microwave, a couple of pots and dishes, and a mini refrigerator.

Decent hotel. Nice and clean and close to a nice cozy little beach.

Location and proximity to the water is terrific. The exteriors are great, very quaint. I would've gave a full five stars except for the fact there's no microwave to heat up your food and leftovers from the restaurants that are about a mile away. One issue that my wife had during our stay is a lack of a full-length mirror. :)

Great, bright rooms, charming minimalist decoration and nice staff. The 3 guests were extremely satisfied. Nice beach and dock, paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkeling.

Very nice and clean except the chemicals used to clean room were very strong ...bleach smell especially...need curtains to block out blue light at night - very bright.

Nicely updated clean room, front desk staff was very helpful & friendly, plenty of parking, nicely kept grounds.

Excellent place and staff. Will definitely comeback

Absolutely amazing! We had very good stay in this place. Hotel is beautiful. Room was clear and in modern style. Hotel offers access to own beach with all equipment - it was absolutely amazing. I recommend it to everyone.

Hotel was easy to find, clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again. The sunset off the beach is a must see Bikes, kayaks and paddle boards are free to use. The only downside to this hotel is minor would be it needs a shelf in bathroom to store toiletries, and maybe put a chest of drawers for clothing storage, other than that a little gem in the middle of key largo 😊

If you're looking for comfortable accommodations with more of the charm outside of your hotel room, then this is the place for you! Drift Hotel offered the most sensational sunsets on the bay side of Key Largo with its private beach and dock. You get a real sense of community at this hotel when most patrons catch up over drinks or dropping a fishing line while the sun goes down. Accommodations are modest as the showers are a bit small, walls aren't soundproof, and beds are modestly comfortable compared to chain hotels. But you'll enjoy this stay most at Drift Hotel if your intent is a little siesta and sunset mingling. Stock your mini fridge and get out on that beach for a relaxing, semi-private getaway while you meet people on the beach or dock. We'll be back to enjoy this simple treasure hotel.

The room was clean. The bed is comfortable. The AC is loud and the room bright at night. I slept well, but should have brought a blanket. Excellent staff, very friendly. The paddle boards are good, good for beginners. There is only one kayak. Great restaurants are nearby. There is no pool but you don’t need one, the ocean is right there! Great lil’ beach and parks are close by. If I stay again I will get a room closer to the water.

Hotel in process of changing name from Stoneledge Paradise Inn to Drift Inn. Hotel staff cordial. Offered use of bikes, and kayaks in Everglades Bay. Rooms were minimalist. One uphoulstered cube to sit on. Bed was creaky - easy to strip the shetts off of it if restless. Needed more shelf space for luggage. Bathroom also needed shelf space. Wood laminate floor. CLEAN! Fridge. E.ffective thermostat for AC. Small communal patio outside. May have had 75 feet of bayside 'beach.' Next to a trailer/RV park, which stayed quiet. Glass bottom boat rides were too rough the day we were there, so didn't go. Movie theaters at Tavernier (6 mi away) near the end of Key Largo for the heat of the afternoon. Bird sanctuary a nice place to spend an hour. Some businesses still recovering from Hurricane irma.
