“I LOVE this quaint bit of Florida”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We found this little bit of paradise on Priceline and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were given a bungalow that looked onto the channel. We could put the kayak in the water right there at our room. The owner gave us the heads up on several good restaurants. If you like the look and feel of "old Florida" this is the place for you. Nothing fancy but lots of character.

We loved the room, pool and dock in the lagoon. Great service, friendly staff. Fully equipped kitchenette, clean comfortable rooms. Best deal in all of the Florida Keys! Will stay here every visit. Booked room for 65 a night, unheard of for the Keys. Close to many attractions including "Robbie's Pier" best place, best rates, great staff. Thank you Kingsail!!!

I didn't want to spend a ton of money for only one night so I surfed the net and found this. I was nervous reading some of the reviews but got it anyway. I'm glad I did the lady at the front desk (pregnant one) was friendly and awesome and made sure everything was ok. This place is a older place but while the rooms were small everything was clean had what basic things a room needed, ice cold air, small fridge, hot shower and 2 comfy twin beds. I felt I got a bargain with the online rate, and would definitely stay here again next time in marathon. The grounds pool and marina area was also well kept and clean. Its a older hotel and yes the rooms are a little smaller but for the price its hard to beat.

Our stay was a delightful excursion into the past! From the actual metal key for the door to all tiled bathroom with a convenient bottle opener in the door to the outdoor coffee cabinet picnic overlooking the lagoon to the fish cleaning station, to the somewhat rickety boat slips and launching ramp. The elevated pool area overlooking the lagoon proved a delightful spot for enjoying a beverage and bird watching.
The room was clean, attractively furnished, white black and yellow decor, with a bit of a bleach odor. It is not unusual to see a tiny bit of rust in seaside lodgings and the absence of a rug and stuffed furniture is a definite plus in a tropical climate. (No insects were evident). The beds were comfortable!
Only complaints: 1. The pool boy must have been on vacation (enough said)
2. The ice machine area was unlighted, when I reached in for the ice (stuck together) a whole bunch of it came loose landing on the back of my hand causing a deep gash that nearly sent me to the hospital for stitches. The clerk did provide a small band-aid (gratis).
This motel is located near the Kmart, restaurants, and is a short drive (or long walk) to the fantastically beautiful Sombrero beach friendly with good picnic amenities and boat ramp. Given the outrageous prices endemic to the Florida Keys, Kingsail Motel is a good deal and a great place to stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms appeared to be A-okay

It did not look as good as the photos. Management was not available after 10pm and did not ensure that the noise rule was followed. Rooms were dated and cramped, bed was right on the doorway. Had to step over it to get in. Too pricey for this sub standard accomodation. We did not feel safe.

Right at the Marathon airport, centrally located to everything one would need in the middle Keys. The rooms were clean, the price was right and it was a very good stay. There is a small set of slips for those that need them.
