Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Marathon

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Maria and staff were wonderful. Staff cleaned our room on time. Everyone working on the property had a smile. The location of the hotel is ideal for keys. It’s right in the middle and one can go either way. There are multiple good restaurants next to the property.

Beds were not very comfortable. Decent breakfast.

We liked the room, pool, tiki bar, and continental breakfast!

The hotel is just about in the middle of the Keys, so if you want to do things on both ends it’s great. The same breakfast options got old fast.

It was just a nice hotel room, but the pool and Tiki bar added a nicer touch. Not worth the money though, after our stay in Ft. Lauderdale at the Atlantic Suites and Spa.

Bill was great in accomdating us for an unexpected extra night, and allowing us to stay in same room for our entire stay, on about 2 hours notice. Great central location and very expansive breakfast choices for a “continental” breakfast. Kids loved it too. Clean and as advertised. Only suggestion... move smoking area away from back door.

Very nice and convenient location. Staff was very friendly

The room was clean but the wall is so thin and the door does not protect from noises due to the open gap at the bottom of the door. The switch of the bed lamp was not working, and the alarm clock made strange noises so I turned it off.

The hotel staff did a fantastic job. The hotel is a little dated but it was very clean. The breakfast was as you would expect from a Holiday Inn express. We would definitely stay there again.

The staff were friendly and always had a smile on their face. The rooms were clean and well stocked with towels and soap, etc. The beds were a little hard for my comfort, but the pillows were great with some soft and some firm. The pool was perfect and clean, with some friendly local iguanas. I would stay here again without a doubt.

We were upgraded to a suite when we arrived which was great!

Loved it there. Will definitely stay again. 10 min drive to Sombrero Beach isn't bad. We were worried about the noise from the airport but there was none. Pool is nice and has a nice view and some cute iguanas. No a huge fan of the new restaurant behind it.

Great hotel, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Just pick it up a bit with the cleanliness, and this would be a five star!

This hotel was the best price for the high quality that we found in Marathon. There is a great variety of accommodation available throughout the Keys and we found this location and quality to be great for our one day drive and visit. Check-in, staff, a beautiful room, amenities, breakfast, comfort... we were very pleased. The outdoor pool with the river backdrop is lovely. Would definitely stay here again. There is a fun tiki-bar next door and a great restaurant right across the road. Access to a public beach is only a short drive away.

We stopped here for the night after a day trip to Key West. Location is convenient being just a few miles from the 7 mile bridge. Water front location but not beach front with nice pool area and tiki bar.

The first night we called to tell them AC was not working, they said they would send someone in the morning. The next morning no one came, so we called again later that day. This time they sent some one out and he replaced the unit but that one ended up not working either.
