Good place to stay and easy to visit Key West. If you stay eat at Key Fishery and the Stuff Pig, both are very good and reasonable. Also don't miss going to Sombreo beach just behind the K-Mart.

Looks a bit worn but room#125 was very nice and the grounds were a pleasant surprise.

Grungy hotel

This place was grungy and not like the website at all. I paid 199/night and it was worth about 40.

this should be your last choice

Pros: marina
Cons: it needs a complete makeover or tear down. In it present condition it has not future in Marathon
Location: Marathon has much to offer, from beach swimming, exploring etc.
i delayed booking until the last minute. was familiar with the marina, the best part of it. the rooms were like a 1960 motel, and the furniture was the same. bad linens, bad towels. pleasant maid service. front desk?? was clueless. pool was ok but the furniture was broken. bar closed a side building was filled with construction stuff. no pool attendant. someone brought a boom box, set way to high. whole place needed to be reconstructed or raised. will not stay again.

Hotel close to water ...

Posted Feb 13, 2015
Pros: Nice size pool and hot tub. I liked the vegetation on the walk to the marina and water.
Cons: The maintenance man told us our building was the last in line to be renovated target sometime in 2015. I hope they put in refrigerators.
Location: Nice restaurants close by
Reasonably priced for the Keys. We liked the fact we could walk out to the marina area and see the water - small sandy area to sit on was a nice treat. Our building was in real need of upgrades and we were told the renovations would begin sometime this year. The other building is being done now. The rooms and grounds were clean and well kept - but right now there is lots of renovation going on. I would stay again in the future.

Website makes it sound like a really nice resort.

Posted Feb 6, 2015
Pros: Staff was friendly
Cons: Renovate it
Location: Lots of restaurants and reasonably close to Key West
Not as pictured onwebsite. Rooms are rundown and not overly clean. Was very disappointed.

No tiki bar, no restaurant as advertised. We should have been informed and compensated

Marathon Hotel

Aging, but under significant renovation. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were very nice. Not a first rate place, but as an overnight stop, it was pleasant enough.
