“NOPE”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We didn't even see the inside of the room. The grounds were very run down, which I might have been able to deal with if the inside was nice and clean but we went to the pool and the water/patio were both dirty. They said we could use one of the other properties pools but they didn't look very sanitary either. Plus the ocean was full of sea weed and smelt like rotten eggs. They refused to refund the rates that they had already withdrawn when I booked for three days which upset me but we decided it was worth it to spend more and stay somewhere else. The maintenance guy was outside when we arrived and was very friendly. That's the only positive thing I have to say. Me being in Real Estate and customer service...I say, spend a little more and find another place. The Islander in Islamorada was fantastic for the $$.

Place is nice but no Beach as advertised, no where to put in Kayaks or you cannot swim in the Atlantic Ocean. However the place is in Grassy Key not Marathon Key (Marathon is about 10 mins away). The Bonefish is quiet and rooms are big. It's okay to stay you can drive to The beach in Marathon and put your boat, jet ski or kayak in on the Gulf side across from the Shellman when you enter Marathon key.

What a run down place,looks like an upside down dumbster trailer with a door and a window ready to fall apart....just a dirty nasty place from the inside out.And good luck if you are 6 feet or taller to fit through the door.Parking is 5 feet of the freeway....Read all the reviews and stay somewhere else ...believe me.

We showed up at the Bonefish Resort and was dismayed due to the debris at the entry and short buildings of the motel. My husband is 6'2" and he nearly hit his head at the entry way of the door. A sign was posted to check in at the Yellow Tail Resort which was a several yards up the road. We then walked back to see the room to find stained chairs, an unknown substance on the title floor, broken shower titles, out dated decor, extension cords plugged into extension cords and no ice machine. The lady at the counter offered us a room at the Yellowtail inn and we were very please!!!! Don't recommend bonefish resort for your stay in the keys.

The room was clean but so very old. The towels are thread bare, you can see through them. Seems there is a community of regulars there and if you are there to escape and can make due with the bare minimum, this is the place. It wasn't the place for me. The dock area is right on the water and that was spectacular. The small onsite pool looked clean.

We showed up at the Bonefish Resort and was dismayed due to the debris and unkept entry way. A sign was posted to check in at the Yellow Tail Resort which was a several yards down the road. They have three related motels with one check in office. I felt uncomfortable staying at the Bonefish and was accommodated at the Yellow Tail closer to the office. The woman at the front desk was very nice and didn't charge me extra for the more expensive room. Our room was clean but in need of some updating. Not much room for two people but we managed. If you're looking for posh, this isn't the place. If you're looking for a one night stay on a budget, this will do.
