“Great time with friends.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Great place to hang for a quick getaway!!! Friendly staff will attend to your needs. Love the setup of having your boat mourned rigth behind your room sliding glass doors. It's very convinient plus a fish cleaning station as well. Clean rooms and very affordable for the Keys. Definetedly recommend it.

We stayed 5 days in June. This botel is located right on the Vaca Cut making access to both gulf and Atlantic very easy. Great having boat tied up right outside your room, makes loading and unloading a breeze. Rooms were very clean as always. Staff was always helpful and knowledgeable of the area. I have been staying here for years and will continue to return.

Room Tip: No fitness room.

We just love staying here on our two month stay in the winter months. We've been coming here for 5 years now and it's like our own home away from home. We just love Laura and Phil. They keep everything so neat and clean and are a very friendly couple and are both extremely nice. We absolutely love the pool and love to see the beautiful flowers and plants that Laura has planted. We also love the beaches and the stores to shop in. We keep our Dinghy in the canal right outside our room, and that is a real plus. We just jump in it and go out fishing. The Manitees come into the canal also and they are so much fun to watch. After visiting FL for many years this is our favorite place to be. Yes sir, the Royal Hawaiian is the best and so are Laura and Phil.This is truly our Paradise.

Once again, we were lucky enough to enjoy a wonderful stay at the R
HB! Great weather, good fishing, and a typical laid back ambience made for another memorable weekend. You'll find Marathon a lot less crowded after May 15 which makes for a more pleasant vacation. As expected, Laura & Phil, the managers, accomodated all of our needs making us feel very welcome. This time, we made ample use of their pool, the beach nearby, and their fish cleaning station. We were also fortunate to be given some Black Fin Tuna caught by other fishermen staying there. We' ve looked at other places to stay, but in all honesty, this is our "Home Away from Home" D. Padron

Room Tip: Make sure you request rooms with full kitchens, such as: #2,6, or 7

I just can say enough about this place, this was our second visit here, I'll tell you what I love about it. The hotel is cozy, AC works great on a really hot summer day, extremely clean and smells clean. Excellent night's sleep, really quiet place with blackout curtains. The boat dock works great for us, step outside and there's your boat! Located on a canal and in less than 20 seconds you have the bay to one side the Ocean to the other. It's a small place maybe 7 rooms I'd say the people who stay there are recurrent customers, we were talking to a couple from Miami who told us this was their 5th visit! There were a group of serious Fishermen staying there who even offered us some of their catch for dinner. The hotel is older but it is by far better than other's I've stayed at that are bigger and newer.
We will definately keep going back!!

This quaint motel/botel is everything Marathon is about. It is literally on the water where you can dock your boat or just fish from your back door. My room was a kitchenette complete with standard size refrigerator and stove with comfortable bedding and did I say tidy? Yes the entire complex is tropically lush, yet extremely well groomed and maintained. The photo is the view from our room. I give this place five stars.

stayed here from 05/11/14 to 05/16/14. Royal Hawaiian was recommended by a friend of a friend. We were very pleased with the price, room ( effect. w/kitchen), location, really everything. This is a older facility so don't expect a hotel chain but you get everything you want/need. I would rate it excellent except the management lady was not friendly, barely spoke to us at check in. The gentleman was very friendly all during our stay. When we checked out she said the most, ask us to fill out review on tripadvisor, "they depended largely on it". Since I didn't need to have a lot of contact with her she wouldn't keep me from staying again. Service was great, very clean, quite,most people would enjoy it here. There is always someone who wont like it
