They Keys are an interesting place...they haven't updated much (see: a lot of Florida) and a lot of the buildings/hotels have been there for quite a while. But this place is in as good shape as you could want and we thought they had done a very nice place taking care of the whole property.
The room wasn't dazzling or modern, but clean and plenty of space. The grounds were groomed (sand) and peaceful, even with the highway right there (that's how it is pretty much everywhere in the Keys). Lots of hammocks, Adirondack chairs, loungers, nice pool area right on the ocean. For the price, I think the Drop Anchor is well worth the stay.
