i was a little worried to be honest , we have always stayed in resorts or houses when we go to the keys ,so I was kinda scared being a "Botel"! BUT ,From the second we got there and saw our cute little room (#5) I knew my worries were over! Resorts we have stayed at were not this SPOTLESS! No frills here AT ALL,but the room is perfect . Bed was very comfortable, AC freezing , and opened the sliders and boat was literally right there! Kim and Steve are AWESOME! They treat you like family , we just loved them and hated to leave . We are looking forward to going back!!

Room Tip: we had room 5 ,very small but perfect ! We saw most of the 8 rooms so any of them are GREAT!

We visited Royal Hawaiian mid February. Our three night visit was perfect. Our room was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Managers Steve and Kim were very helpful. This was our first visit to the Keys so we had a lot of questions. Loved seeing the manatees out our back door. Will definitely stay here when we get back to Marathon.

Room Tip: We had room 2. Worked well for us.

Stayed 2 nights in room 1, March 1 and 2, 2018. High season, so $179 per night was about the lowest price around. Very clean, no bugs or critters, reasonably comfortable bed. 2 minor complaints: A/C looked to be the same vintage as the motel (early 60s?) so was quite loud. Also, the bed was not made and sheets not changed after the 1st night. Was this custom (differs from all motels I've stayed in), or just an oversight? Not a biggie, so I didn't ask.

Owners provide coffee, and there's a small fridge. That was plenty, since there are plenty of good eating establishments nearby. Marathon is a good place to plan a stop, since it's about halfway down the Keys.

I would book the Royal Hawaiian again on my next visit.

This was our second stay at the Royal Hawaiian and this time we brought a group with us. Steve and Kim are some of the friendliest people around. Kim keeps the motel absolutely spotless. From the street, most people would shy away from this place, which is okay with me because that means there will be room for us! During our stay, our only complaint was the canal in the back. We had a NW wind and it blew a bunch of crap into the canal behind the hotel. This was way more than last time we visited and probably attributed somewhat to Hurricane Irma vegetative debris. Other than that, it reminded me of vacationing with my parents when we were much younger. If you have a boat, you can park it in the canal behind the motel. The rooms were quiet and we could not hear a peep from our neighbors to the right or left, and they were not quiet little shutterbugs either. The beds were comfortable, and did I mention... clean! We would go out for the day and upon our return, all the towels, washcloths, hand towels, and floor mats were fresh. We will definitely be back.
