“Friendly Staff, Great Affordable Place!”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

Stayed there this past weekend (9/18) and was very satisfied with the friendly staff and cozy/clean cottages. Staff made us feel very welcome, and let us choose which cottage we wanted to stay in. They took the time to make sure we were satisfied with our rooms and were very helpful in answering all of our questions. All the cottages we saw were clean and looked just like the photos we had seen online. There's great beaches just a couple of miles away, and great restaurants as well. We will definitely be back soon!

The breakfast was nice with the outdoor seating and nice host in the a.m... but our room 12 had slamming doors til after midnight and the connecting door vibrated everytime any door opened. got old fast. Check in was tough... the high school-er couldn't tell us where bike rentals were - we found out later they were nearly on site of the motel.

Clean and comfortable otherwise.

I found Tropical Cottages on the Internet & they were the most reasonable I could find.
They are very unique and a throw back to my early childhood in the 40's before modern motels.
We were very pleasently surprised on our arrival.
The Owner,Manager & Staff were very helpful in recommending local resturants & attractions, and fulfilling our requests for items we wanted for our room.
We found our room (#12), very clean and comfortable and had been recently renovated.
The Grounds were very well kept and landscaped to a Tropical setting.
Loved the outdoor Cabana area with nice seating area.
If we ever want to stay in Marathon again, we will definetely stay here.

My son and I needed to book an inexpensive two night stay on short notice. Our first night was in Cottage 3. It was clean, comfortable, and fine except for a stopped drain in the shower. Gigi (Manager) was more than helpful in solving the problem. She immediately moved us to Cottage 4 for the second night, and we saw a plumber arrive to fix the drain as we were leaving for the day's outing. Gigi was not only helpful, but friendly and welcoming to guests. It's great to be in a laid -back area like the Florida Keys- but nice that the people who run Tropical Cottages aren't laid back when it comes to providing service. Highly recommend. Well located, clean, great atmosphere- and good price. We'll be back.

This was such a cute little oasis in Marathon! Close to everything and our cottage was real cozy. We rented the unit with a fully equipt kitchen so we were able to cook our own meals. Tropical Cottages just started a complimentary breakfeast which was amazing, juice bagels danishes, yogurt.. The staff was very friendly Gigi in the front office was very helpful and knowladgeable on local attractions. We will definitely stay here again and reccomend it to anyone interested in vacationing in marathon!

Tropical cottages were a great value. We stayed in the king cottage, and while we couldn't really cook anything major, there was a full fridge and a small sink with a coffee machine and toaster oven. Friendly staff, and dock space available too. Comfortable beds, and overall clean facilities!!!
