I was not expecting a 5 star hotel at the price we paid $90 however it should have been free! No joke! The room was gross the shower even grosser there literally were claw marks on the door and bugs crawling on the ceiling the images explain it all! The only nice thing I can say was the lady who booked us on the phone was nice and the tiki bar was nice too however the hotel should be closed til renovated

This place is not a resort !
Their cost is just the double of what it should cost
The place is dirty and looks a bit like a dump
The place is in bad condition and desperately needs maintenance
Gaz pumps are just near the pool and the smell is awfull
no breakfast included
I dont recommend this place

Yea, the place is old and needs updating but it reminds us of an old time lake resort in northern Minnesota. We only had one night but had some food and drinks in the big tiki bar. Karoake was well attended, it was all good.

Room Tip: Try and get a first floor room as there are shaded patios right next to the water.

This is not a review of the resort which it is not. It is a motel by a marina. The place looks really old. we stopped by our way to Key West. We went to the Tiki bar. We had chips and salsa, cheeseburger, stone crabs 1lb and beers for about 74 bucks.
The food was great. The atmosphere terrific. We really enjoyed the place, the view to the marina, the great staff and the live music. So as far as a Tiki Bar goes, it's great!

Disgusting shower that by the end of the shower I was up to my ankles in water, peeling paint, reversed knobs. Toilet that plugged every time (they had a plunger beside it - what does that tell you?). Plastic covered uncomfy beds, teeny tiny TV, no clock, generally grungy. Decent Tiki bar, with decent food...nothing fantastic. For $130 / night you should probably pay a little more and go somewhere else. My biggest beef was that we had no cell service as we are Canadians, and we had a medical issue that required people calling us in our room. The management would not answer the main switchboard phone after five o'clock in the afternoon! Really annoying.

Room Tip: Don't stay at all, but FOR SURE not on top level.
