Nice little beach area. Grills outside by the beach. Condo is older but clean and in good shape. The beach is small but nice. There is a park next door to watch the sunset. The area was safe. The room was small but adequate for 4 people.

Stayed here with a dive group. Very pleased with my room (fully equipped) and housekeeping service. It is a small place in a nice location, but was a bit crowded with kids. Decent pool. Nice beach area with grills. Would stay here again.

Stayed here with my son and it was a very clean place. The carpeting was stained and out dated and it would have really helped if they had black out curtains on the windows. When I'm on vacation I like to sleep in and 6:30 am when the sun is up is NOT sleeping in. We grilled out one night and stayed out on the sandy deck by the ocean and the breeze coming off the ocean made it very pleasant to stay out there. Especially since during the day the heat is unbareable. Wish the beach area was cleaner (lots of seaweed on sand) and you are literally stepping off the stairs into the ocean and the last step is really slippery since it stays wet. But would stay there again and would highly recommend it to others.

This was our second stay at the Continental Inn and we still love it! For the money, it fits our needs perfectly.... clean, quiet, friendly staff, and GREAT location. I've read many reviews, and people must understand that the places to stay in the Keys are a little different than most places. There are some that charge more money and are not fit for animals, let alone humans!!! This place is WONDERFUL. If you are young, party seeking, wild and looking to blow off steam (like we all were at one time), then DO NOT come here.... this place is for people looking for a nice relaxing get-away. Every room is a little different because each one is owned by individual people, so some may be more updated than others...so keep that in mind. We had unit #28 this time and it's awesome!!!!

This is my second time staying here and I did not regret it. The landscaping of the property is very well done. The pool is adequate for the amount of people that can stay at this motel. The private beach is nice. The beach is mostly sand but their are some rocks right by shore. They have two big propane barbeques that you can use for free, as long as you clean up after yourself. The reason why I like this place so much is because their are some rules. Rules that have common sense attached to them. This is why this place is clean and not full of rowdy spring breakers. I like to have fun too, but I don't want anyone keeping me awake all night. The housekeeping is great and the location couldn't be any better. I will be coming back here again in the future.

Room Tip: some of the corner rooms have 2 bedrooms

First the good news. The grounds of the property are pristine and the service is very friendly. Great tiki hut, bbq's, beautiful ocean area, quiet neighborhood, incredibly private. All condo's are independently owned and there in lies the huge discrepency in accommodations. We had the opportunity to see an updated unit which made ours even harder to understand. We stayed in Unit 40, on the end overlooking the ocean. Should be awesome right!!! not by any means
The unit itself is past old and antiquated. It starts with the drapes which you can't move unless you stand on the couch, a kitchen table that isn't stable with chairs that are completely uncomfortable with pads that look like they have never been cleaned. The microwave is so old there is no turntable inside, the toaster's elements are bent so pretty much non functinal, and the refrigerator has no icemaker. The bathroom is straight out of the 70's with the teeny tile, bright yellow with a tiny window who's screen is caked in dirt. The shower has a curtain and doors probably because only one works and the patio door is much the same. They will charge you $25 if you don't clean and put away any dishes that you used, but somehow the previous renters must have missed that rule. There are only 2 glasses that match, others have prices underneath, and some are so old you can't tell stain from garbage. We cleaned everything and found food on many. With all that being said, ask for an updated rental and insist upon it. If you get one of those you will not be disappointed in the least. This is a hidden gem, you just have to get the right unit.

Room Tip: Ask and demand an updated unit and you will not be disappointed. All of the photo's here are qu...

We stayed at the continental inn the first week of May. The rates were very reasonable. I also enjoyed the fact that the management tries to keep it nice and quiet. While some may want a hotel where they can party and be loud, that is not what I look for when I go on vacation. I also like that they do not allow fishing from their beach area. There is nothing worse than trying to avoid a fishing line or hook while enjoying the water. We will definitely be back.
