“Perfectly quiet and relaxing keys experience”
Reviewed 2 July 2011

Read all the great reviews and got myself really pumped up. The rooms were exactly as I expected which means that they were clean and nicely appointed but were older. The staff is so very friendly and helpful. We loved being able to go swimming from their (small) beach. Every night we spent hours on the dock drinking wine, talking and enjoying the keys lifestyle. The location is perfect - extremely close to John Pennekamp coral state park, an hour drive to the heart of the Everglades, right next door to one of the best restaurants in the Keys and not crazy busy like Key West. This experience put a bug in my head to retire here and run a small motel just like this one.

This little spot is perfect for the scuba diver! We were just a hop and a skip from the dive company we were using. The snorkling there at the hotel was surprising!! I saw so much there under their pier as well as the neighboring piers a well. The staff is great, everything was clean and we felt right at home!

Room Tip: The rooms behind the house are great!!

Great place for a getaway in Key Largo. All hotels and motels in the keysexpect dust and and a few bugs, this place didnt have much of that, at all. Great westside and sunset views, room 11 is the best views. Not the cleanest place because it has dirt and rocks outside.

We stayed at the Bay Cove Motel on the recommendation of others on Trip Advisor. They were pretty much on target - not the Hilton, but a great value. We rented the studio, and would definitely stay there again - it overlooked the water, and had plenty of room - would have been good with 1-2 kids too. There are grills available to cook if you want, kayaks also available, and helpful staff to recommend restaurants and what to do in the area. The best was the resident manatee who came to the dock to visit. Their website does not do it justice. On the down side - the housekeeper missed our room twice, the bed was terrible and the shower leaked terribly. It was walking distance to several great restaurants. And best of all - the air conditioners worked!

Room Tip: Ask for the studio - 2nd floor with a great view

We stayed for one day and one night last month here for my birthday. When I got there, I found a balloon and cupcakes in my room. This was literally the icing on the cake as it's the best value for your money, clean and very 'homey'. We kayaked during the day and hung out on the pier at night. We even saw two manatees and were able to get right into the water and touch them which was one of the most remarkable moments in life. Thank you Kelley and Mike for making our stay perfect!! My only wish was to stay longer: )

My husband and I just recently stayed here for our Honeymoon. The rooms were nice, our neighbors around us and the couple who run the place are very friendly. Went fishing on the dock, basked in the sun and had a great time! Nice grille for anyone who wants to bbq. Was told by many people staying that there were a few manatees who make friendly visits to the dock- was upset we didn't get to see them...hoping to next time! Great deal for your money. Will definitely visit next year. Thank you so much!

This motel has a tropical feel and great views from the dock area overlooking the bay. Very helpful and friendly staff. Walking distance to several restaurants. The rooms were clean and the suite was very nice.

For the price this place can't be beat. There is no pool or conference room or gym. This is just an old fashioned motel with a great view. If you need all of that stuff and flat screen Tv's in your room etc, then this is not the place for you. But if you want to relax you are minutes away from charter boats or snorkling trips. The state park is a 5 minute ride away. I would definately go back to the Bay Cove.
