“Relaxing and Inviting”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

Clean Rooms, wonderful staff. I spent the day relaxing and reading. Various chairs throughout property allowed for staying out of the sun and enjoying the island breeze. Diana is an excellent host!

From the outside the motel does not. Inspire confidence, however there was. Nothing about this motel that we could really fault. The owner is superb, extremely helpful and recommended a first class restaurant which enabled us to see a magnificent sunset.

She is nearly always heavily booked up with returning fishermen and has a tremendous following with visitors returning year after year.

Altogether a most memorable stop. If you are really lucky Diana wil make you a key lime pie, another memorable experience.

The room was definitely very clean and the owner is very nice, friendly and helpful. She recommended a great restaurant for dinner, also for breakfast as there is no breakfast included in stay. We were only there for one night so it was fine but we did miss having a clock and coffee maker in the room. Also, bring your own shampoo as none is provided.

Stayed here 3 nights this year, my fourth time to stay here.Very clean and roomy complete kitchen and 2 double beds.Reminds me of cabins in the 1960's,very neat and clean.owner is a very nice lady and wants to be sure your stay is pleasant.We were on a fishing trip and she even gave advice on where to fish.Very reasonable rates for the Keys.Nice place to stay. The Wooden Spoon next door has a very good breackfast and you can walk to it.

Our room was spotless! It is family run and you can tell they care. Such friendly and helpful people.We stayed in room 11 and had a full kitchen. Since we were staying 5 days this certainly came in handy for saving lots of money on meals. It is conveniently located to explore the keys.

We came to town without a reservation and after stopping by a couple of other motels we were feeling hopeless. From the rear view mirror we spotted this place and decided to pull in. We figured it couldnt be any worse than what we had seen and the price we were quoted. We were so surprised when the rooms we were shown were so spotless and at a great deal!!! The rooms were pleasant for the stay and included a fridge and microwave. Ms. Diana is an amazing lady and it was great chatting with her over the 2 days that we stayed. I don't believe there is beach access, but there were a couple of beaches that we stopped at within a mile or two of her place. If your looking for a clean and affordable place to stay, this is a great choice.

Great little place, quaint and close to everything. What you would expect in the Keys and the area. Left Sombrero Resort and Marina to come here. Glad we did.
