Just what we were looking for, nothin' fancy, just comfortable rooms and nice people near the stuff we wanted to do. They were right on the canal, and you could book snorkling trips, rent jet skis, etc, right from the stands just outside the hotel. We were expecting a regular hotel room, but it was an apartment suite with a balcony looking over the canal.
The whole experience was like dream. A room with a view indeed. Newly renovated. Studio. It is NOT the Sheraton. It's a room on the beach. It's in the Florida Keys an hour north of Key West. You can pay more but you won't get more.

Oh that all hotels could be run like this one!!! Has to be the cleanest room we've encountered. And the view - it's right along the water, with hammocks and beach chairs set out to watch the sunrise. Staff are amazing - two people on duty for the breakfast and lots of rubbish bins so everything stays clean and appetizing. Lots of it too.
We could easily have spent the rest of our vacation at this place, but alas, we needed to move on. We will definitely be back.
If you have very high standards for a room, look elsewhere. If you're looking for one of the most relaxed, laid-back places in Florida: You should consider this place your next destination. Rustic environment, sometimes even dolphins in the morning (I was lucky enough to see them when I was there!)

This hotel was amazing! The room was great, the staff made it seem like a small town feel and they were very accommodating. Especially after was checked out and had an evening dive planned they allowed us to use the showers. I will definitely be staying there every time I dive in Key Largo. It was a much better experience than Marina Del Mar.
I was very surprised in the living space of the suite with kitchen. The walls seemed a bit thin since I could hear others cell phones in the early morning. However, overall stay was just fine. they are also pet friendly which is a plus for me.
