Conch on Inn Motel
Ranked #4 of 11 Islamorada B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2013

The Conch on Inn has come out of its shell with new owners.
Being "pet-friendly" is a little misleading - that's what many places say and don't really mean. This place really LOVES dogs and wants them to run around the fenced-in motel and socialize. And there are three sweet resident dogs in case you have to leave yours behind.
Owners Cindy and Mike will give you hospitality that doesn't feel fake and will try and make your stay as best as possible. They also are people you will genuinely want to get to know if you have time. They love where they are and what they now do, and, as a guest, I can tell.
The canal in the outdoor "lobby" was peaceful, sometimes has a manatee visitor, is a great place to take a dip and has tables, a fire pit and a barbecue. There also are rafts you can use.
I didn't really go to Islamorada to spend a lot of time in a hotel room (I came to dive). But the rooms here are what you should expect: Clean (thanks, maid Elaine) and with everything you need including a fridge, microwave, coffee-maker (bring coffee) and flat-screen TV. You also can get a free pass here to Founders Park.
Upgrades are being made, so the tiki-island motel feel should only get better, and I will be back someday to see them! They've already gotten the hospitality down like pros.

We stayed 2 nights this weekend and had a great time. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. The owners told us they are making continual upgrades, so it should only get better.

We brought our dog with us and not only was the motel pet friendly as advertised, but the owners did a little pet-sitting while we were out fishing.

This is going to be our new home away from home in Islamorada. The biggest reason is the owners. They are super people, made us feel welcome, like part of the family.

Room Tip: Any room is good now, there is a refrigerator, flat screen TV, and roomy bathroom.

The best mom and pop place ever. New owners are the most friendly people ever. Very pet friendly, even my little yappers loved their dogs. My dogs loved playing and running around in the fenced in yard. We were able to keep our bay boat right at their dock. There manatees that come up by the dock from time to time. restaurants nearby. Places nearby to kayak. I just can't say enough about the place. I don't care for places with stuffy people and this place suited us to a tee. If you love quaint little getaways that are very relaxing with great company, this the place to be. We will definitely be back to this place where we felt so welcomed. Great hospitality!!!

What a wonderful time away. We hadn't been away for quite awhile with work, etc. But this was well worth the wait. Located on a peaceful and serene canal with clean, bright rooms, it was our perfect get away. We even ended up staying an extra day. Who would want to leave. A great time with friends or time alone, whichever you wanted. It seemed the guest became friends very quickly with our charming and fun hosts, Mike and Cindy. We will certainly be going back again and again.

Room Tip: Any room provides the same ambience. There are different sizes depending on your needs but leave it...

If you are a native Floridian and grew up going to the Key's like I have.....this is fantastic place......it is true Key's style. I love to take my pups with me on vacation and this place is awesome...the entire place is fenced in so you can literally open your motel door and let them out to run and play. Clean rooms...excellent service.....Cindy and Mike the owners were wonderful! Cant wait to go back!!! I heard the ladder was up and ready...so I need to take a dip in the canal.....and go bug hunting!

What a beautiful little diamond In the ruff. I was expecting a little road side motel, and it turned out to be much more like a little home away from home, thanks mostly to the wonderful staff and gracious hosts Mike and Cindy. A beautiful canal view close to the main water way with dockage for your boat, and my Golden Retriever puppy had a wonderful time with room to play. The room had all the amenities we needed, and convenient location accessible to restaurants and local attractions by car or boat was a plus. Kudos to Mike and Cindy...Thank You for a wonderful experience at the Conch On Inn.
