Nasty.. nothing there. They need to update their info. The dock and floating rooms have been gone almost 2 years.

I would not recommend this property to anyone. It was not as advertised. No floating rooms at all. Very small, and not clean, no curtains, electric outlets did not work. The office is only manned for a few hours in the morning and afternoon.

BEDS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, WALL AIR-CONDITIONING UNIT VERY NOISY, AND HAD A BUG CRAWLING ON MY ARM IN THE NIGHT.

Awesome location on the water on a house boat, very cheap for the Keys but oh my, extremely dirty. Toenail clippings and used tissues on floor. Staff/owner found it a mammoth task to find a spare sheet and pillow insisting there were no extra at all anywhere. With a massive clean and a little more attention to comfort it would be ideal. Wifi doesn't reach boats. Hotel doesn't respond to emails so be sure to call if you have queries. Take own bedding if possible. Manatees swim right up to the boats.

Seems like an interesting concept, to sleep on small houseboats on the water, but sadly, we were landlubbers sleeping on simple beds

Thought I had booked a floating room, evidently not. The Motel room was built in the 50s, paper-thin walls, I could hear the next door snoring half the night, dirty floor, dirty bathroom, no remote on the TV, no headboard on the bed so the pillows ended up on the floor behind it, first time I wanted to wear my clothes to bed so I had a minimum of skin touching the sheets, terrible mattress, bad location, have to either drag your suitcase over the gravel or carry it, half the light bulbs were out. Water pressure was a joke. I have stayed in hostels in 3rd world countries where it was cleaner and taken care of better. If I wasn't so tired when I got there I would have started searching for another place and moved on. Hopefully you can avoid the mistake I made.

Unfortunately I have to rate this place the worst I have ever stayed at. Dead cockroach in the bathroom, animal feces in the corners, and the bedding was so extremely stained I ended up using my own blanket. Signs on the kitchen that you cannot use the kitchen but only the fridge and microwave as you have to pay extra to use the kitchen. Really? The room was so cold we ended up buying a heater.

BEACH ACTIVITY AND FOR SWIM. NOT FAR TO KEY WEST.
