Super great location right next to beach; lanai and front window looked out to Beach and Atlantic Ocean; watched sunset and sunrise from front lanai. Owner was very friendly and nice. Our room was about 10 feet from Atlantic beach. Room was nice and clean; quaint 1950's style as most of Florida Keys is. Adding to 1950's quaintness was even...

I stayed at the Harbor Lights Inn while on a bicycle tour of the Florida Keys with my brother. We were looking for adequate, inexpensive overnight accommodations. We got just that. We stayed in a cabin with a kitchenette which was very helpful because of needing to store two bikes and all of our gear. The property is somewhat dated,...

Nice view of the ocean. It's one of the keys older hotels but it's not badly priced and fairly decent if you ask me. Could use a little updating but nice for what you pay. Had a nice little beach and pool area.

This was the nastiest most run down place ever!! We tried to make the best of it however when we were sitting on the porch of one of the cabanas that we rented, a woman came up to us and said she was the owner which I highly doubt it. She looked like she just smoked some crack. She told...

If you want a place to stay that is clean (albeit fairly old) and you intend to be out and about the Keys day and evening, this is a bargain! The grounds are nice in that you are welcomed to sit and enjoy the beauty that is the water and the palm trees. There is a small pool to use...

This motel is old Florida style. Window ac units, old style rooms and bathrooms, and kitchens. There were no towel racks in the bathroom and the bathroom window was the old school slates with the roll up option that did not close all the way (no fan either) and the paint was peeling off the inside of the door.
