Key Lantern Motel and Blue Fin Inn
Ranked #7 of 11 Islamorada B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 November 2003

I just stayed for two nights at the Blue Fin/ Key Lantern.

This is a very inexpensive mom and pop old style motel, that is nicely located. Service? There is no service. You get a room that is clean and has the basics for a cheap price. If you want service, the town is full of resorts, and it will cost you a lot more.

I got what I paid for: A clean place to sleep, so I could get up and go out and enjoy the pleasures of the Keys. That's how you should view this place. If you want a hotel/resort "experience" you should go elsewhere.

Lots of restaurants and entertainment nearby.

The owners are very pleasant and helpful.

Maybe this is a taste of the old Keys?

This was the worse hotel we ever stayed in. The floor was linoleum and my socks were literally black from walking on the floor. There is only one light in the room so you cannot read in bed. There is no clock or radio in the room. Could hear traffic from the highway going by all night long. If you want ice, you have to purchase it at the grocery store down the road.

This place was a PIT. I can't believe I lasted the whole night. It was dirty, excuse me in fact it was FILTY . It smelled musty. The staff was rude & disinterested. Do yourself a favour, find a nice park bench somewhere. You'll probably have a better stay.

On a positive note, if you're looking for a good place to eat try the Islamorada Fish company. Great ambiance & food to match.

Myself and several friends have stopped here for many years. The owners are always very friendly and accommodating. The place maybe old, but it's always clean and everything works just fine. Love the close proximity to Lorilei's and Woody's.

I've stayed at this motel quite often and find the rooms to be clean, but not fancy. The staff is always accommodating and friendly. I enjoy the motel which is quiet, and it's right on the same parking lot as the Lorilei restuarant which makes it very convienent. Has the old '50's Keys mom and pop flavor and the prices are right, especially for the Keys.

The worst! Crappy rooms, crappy bed. The worst service ever. Hard to believe, but not worth the 30 bucks a night.
