DO NOT STAY HERE. If I could give it zero stars I would. This has been the worst hotel experience ever. The price may be low but it is for a reason. The Lock on the front door did not work, there were dead insects ALL over the room, the room was filthy from top to bottom, and to top... More

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We do our best but can't allow unlimited guests to use our facilities when they are not registered here. We feel that our prices are competitive and didn't charge a resort fee for unregistered guests. The rules of the motel need to be enforced and no disrespect is ever intended. Other guests... More

This place was very good value.. The pool was nice and the dock was the best. Mark really appreciates his customers and was willing to help us. I can't wait for the new building to open. We stayed in a one bedroom bungalow. It had everything we could ask for..

My family booked three nights in one their cottages. We booked this place because they had a ramp and slip to dock our boat. $179 a night plus $20 a day for the boat and trailer. The ramp was adequate and the dock space was deep and had fresh water for use which was nice. It took about 10 min... More

We are sorry your family was not satisfied with your stay. We do have a refund policy and wanting a refund 15 min. before check-out on last morning because your other rental was ready a day early seemed unreasonable. Our cottages are older but are kept up and cleaned after every guest stay. We do have pest control and have... More

We stayed here for about 5 weeks, only finding out about the place from a tip from a friend. There are only about 12 RV sites with full hook-ups, we stayed down on the waterfront by the Tiki hut. The owner is on site trying to keep the cabins cleaned and the park maintained, but I know he could use... More

Stayed in one of the cottages with my husband for 3 nights. Set-up wasn't too bad - bed, 3 pillows, couch, kitchen with general appliances and bathroom. On our first night, it poured outside for a few hours. We noticed that water was pooling in the bathroom and assumed that it was from the rain. However, turned out that it... More

We drove into the driveway passing the above ground pool. The pool was dirty and old looking but we were not going to swim so this really wasnt an issue.

Not to be confused with a similarly named place up the road, Bonefish Bay Motel & RV is a nice place to stay in the Keys.
