“Do not stop here”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

We did lots of homework prior to going to the Keys , but somehow were mislead about staying at Pine Key. Do not stay here. The island itself has NOTHING to offer. You will drive somewhere else for anything you do or eat. This hotel is horrid. It made me sad to stay there. A typical 1960s motel 6 type place. Rooms are beyond tired. Very dreary brown blanket on bed. Shower/bath needs to be torn out/replaced. Don't stay here. We suggest going to another key altogether. The restaurant next door The Cracked egg was busy, but it was so "laid back local" that it was really more "low class truck stop dining" . Not my kind of place. The hotel is right off of the main highway --all the ambiance of a 7-11 parking lot.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

If you are thinking on going to key west and you know its a busy week or weekend you won't want to stay at a key west hotel or resort , for example I went to key west during spring break and everything was packed I didn't have a hotel so we called Marriott and other hotels and the cheapest price was $250 a night so if you don't mind driving 30 miles from the southernmost spot than your okay and the price I got in this hotel is unbeatable for just $119 a night it was great .

I gues that most accommodation is overpriced in the Keys....this place is no different. Bed was comfortable and clean, room had a refrigerator and TV. Wifi didn't work and I suspect it probably never would as the person on the front desk didn't want to share valuable bandwidth! Place is nowhere near a water but is right on the highway. Ten minute walk to a couple of mediocre restaurants for supper in a plaza.

NO lotion or shampoo, tiny TV, no brkfst, flat old pillows, NO clock even, curtain barely spans window thus letting in lots of light. Thin walls means hearing every other guest coming & going. Beat up furniture. Poor lighting, 1 tiny lamp, sparse linens.

I was in need of a short get-away over Christmas. The folks at Big Pine Key Motel were able to provide a room at a reasonable rate. The front desk was willing to stay late as I wasn't sure I could make it there by 10PM and upon arrival, I was greeted with a smile. Thank you for being there when I needed you!

I left a review of this hotel last year and thought I would update again for 2012. My husband and I stayed at the Big Pine Motel in Sept. 2012. My husband and I are the types that don't need to be pampered every momeny of our vacation but we have very high standards when it comes to cleanliness, security, and reputation of anywhere we visit. And after two visits now, the Big Pine Key Motel remains a favorite stay in the Lower Keys.

No, this isn't a "luxury" hotel and if you are looking to feel like royalty and spend more money on lodging then a boutique hotel in Key West is probably for you. But if you want to visit the gorgeous beaches at Bahia Honda State Park, you cannot do better for the price. Also, the motel is just a minute drive away from little local shops, a great bagel joint, Chinese restaurant, and the Key Deer Refuge. Our $89 room came with a fridge, tv, cold ac, two beds, microwave, table, and two chairs. It was comfortable, quiet, and we slept all through the night. Speedy check in and check out, trustworthy front desk staff who charged exactly what they quoted us.

All in all, a great budget option. We saved money by cutting out the frill and fluff but not sacrificing a bit of comfort and fun. We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: If you can climb stairs, the rooms on the top floor are about $10.00 cheaper!
