Clean older motel, basics are all you will get, BUT... the location is well worth the lack of luxury. Hotel is for sale thus minimal repairs have been done. I could picture a small boutique style resort on this picture perfect property, if only I had $10 mill! Economical if just looking for clean place to sleep.

We were at the resort from 1/9 to 1/13. It was everything we read. A great little 1950's style resort. If you are looking for the latest and greatest fancy accomodations this may not be your place. If you are looking for a quiet, affordable place to stay in Islamorada, this is it. We checked in and from that moment...

We loved it! The owners were very willing to make sure we had everything we needed, or wanted. They even let me use their personal fishing pool to use on the beach. They also supplied me with bait. These are very good people!

We LOVED La Jolla. Melissa was wonderful helping me get everything booked. My family stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage 3 adults and 3 boys 21,16 & 13. We had all the room we needed. It feels like you stepped back in time. The dock is awesome for boats and fishing. We will definitely be back!

Lovely grounds and marina with plenty of palms and tropical plants. Very small but pleasant beach (with access to only docks). I loved palms, bougainvillea and bird/squirrel feeders. Water under docks is clear, you can see some amazing colorful parrotfish and needle noses. Front desk sells inexpensive baggies with fish food so you can feed fish. Staff were courteous and...

Room was a nice size and clean but for the money we could have done better. The bed was rock hard- the air conditioner was on and off all night- right next to the bed in a bad place. They have bikes- and kayaks and the location is good .

My husband and I have stayed here at least once a year for the last 15 years. The rooms have been updated and their beds are very comfortable. Vickie, the manager can't do enough for you. The property is what most people want in a Keys experience. The best restaurants in Islamorada are a 5 minute ride south.

I have stayed in many places on Islamorada in all price ranges and this is now one of my very favorites. I like the waterfront area and views. My studio was very airy, nice and had large windows with great views. The location was great and close to many restaurants, etc. This is an old Florida style place and has...
