I had to erase my previous review as this place is AMAZING. This is NOT A RESORT if that's what you are looking for move on. We stayed 5 days and could not ask for better accommodations. This is an old school Motel not a RESORT!!! It is very clean,no bugs, smells good and was just as clean as it smelled. The beds were comfortable (I have back issues) so that says alot. The owner Mr.Frank and his staff we're very nice and always asked us if we needed anything. I see some reviews here about having to use another property's pool,well at the end of the day if a pool decides your review you have issues as the water in the Keys is the biggest pool I've ever seen. We had a kitchenette 2 beds and we still had plenty of room. It is 20 minutes to Big Pine Key, and 40 minutes or so to Key West depending on traffic of course. This will be our go to place from here on out when we visit the Key's. What is really cool, this property has 7 rooms, so there's not much noise as we slept like new born babies. Again thank you Mr.Frank and staff for making our stay 1 to remember.

I was sadly disappointed this weekend. My husband, daughter and I booked the hotel online almost a month in advance.. planned on only staying one night. May husband and I stayed here before a few years ago. I already knew there were no extra frills and the place is kinda old and wore down but I was only planning on spending one night and it was one of the cheaper options. Especially with it being spring break weekend... I got an email on Wed stating if you plan on arriving after 4 pm call the day before to state you will arrive later.. So I call Thursday morning. Frank tells me that there is some kind of glitch and he will call me back in 3 minutes. 25 minutes late Frank calls me to tell me he is sorry there was some sort of upgrade that occurred to their online booking service and they do not have a room for us.. He did reach out to another nearby hotel and find a room for us... I’m honestly just really upset at the overbooking and the fact that the other hotel shared that Siesta frequently overbooked... Again in all honesty, I think i will be happier at this other hotel as it is bigger, cleaner looking, and I’m saving about $70 but this could have potentially been really bad for us considering the time of year and it only being days the trip... Get you stuff together Siesta Motel..

So, it iant the Ritz, nor does it claim to be...but this is a tidy, cute and tiny motel meant only to offer a place to sleep, and it does so comfortably. 2 double beds in each room are exceedingly comfortable. I am amazed. Quality pillow top mattresses. Cute old bathrooms with funky old school tiles, and the terrazzo floors have flecks of mother of pearl which is cool. The only singular drawback is that given this motel is right on the overseas highway, every truck, motorcycle, RV, car, and bicycle that flies by, sound as though its driving through your room. Yikes! Luckily, I brought earplugs. I recommend that you do too.......

Loved it ... was a clean quaint hotel. Centrally located in middle of the keys. The staff as well as management were very friendly n helpful. The room was very clean with cold a/c . There was a microwave and small tv in room if needed.

We found this place online, looked decent . But we're we surprised! The room smelled badly, the place looked ok from the outside inside not so much... dark dingy, smelly,Not what I thought it should be especially at$245.00 dollars a night. Want even shampoo lotion nothing! The guy at the frontcounter said he usually don't provide that stuff... really? At $245.00 a night you don't provide that? I would never stay there again at any price.

They advertise a pool but it's down the road from the units. The owner wasn't very friendly at all. Didn't have much choice of places to choose from since we went down to the keys last minute for a quick getaway.

A cute little retro-style motel, clean, lovingly cared for and well landscaped and maintained. Huge comfortable bed, quiet room, very conveniently located. Friendly service. That's all I need! Would stay there again!

It is conveniently located at the center of the Florida keys. We stayed here for 2 nights. We chose a high efficiency room as we had a family of 4. Overall the room was clean and spacious. They had a small kitchenette with descent equipment. Quality was worth the price.

The room was very clean, all new furniture. Beds were very comfortable had a full refrigerator and microwave. Frank was a very helpful travel guide and even allowed us to check in early. I would stay here again next time in Marathon.

Basic, spotless clean, relaxed little motel. Got a wee fright when I read reviews AFTER I booked, but knowing people can be fickle, I just went with it. Flight from UK was a little delayed and the long drive from Miami made the clean comfortable room even better. Yes, it was a little dated, but it has all you need and more. Well situated for a drive to Key West and Sombrero beach is a very short drive away.
