“overnight stay in Marathon”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

A nice small motel we discovered on the way back to Key West. Only 7 rooms but one of the cleanest older motels we have stayed in. Run by nice couple who have put a lot into complete
remodel of each room. We stayed in #4 which had a king bed and single bed plus a small fridge
microwave and coffee pot. The owner was kind enough to show me other rooms and some had
complete Kitchens and all were very clean. No wifi our telephones but that was no problem for
us. Also no pool but again not an issue Would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Room 4 if you want king size bed and room 7 would be farthest from Highway

We chose the Anchor Inn based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed! It's a wonderful little place with lots of charm. The owners were friendly, the room was clean and fresh and cute. No dingy motel here! Our room had a kitchen, which we really appreciated. We would definitely stay here again! It was great!

Reminiscent of a Marilyn Monroe 1950's movie set. Cute, adorable and clean. Affordable price. Efficiency kitchen. Coin operated laundry area on site. The owners are hands on locals and very nice people. I enjoyed my stay.

This quaint little motel is located halfway through the Keys. It is in Marathon, FL. The Anchor Inn was our home for 2 nights. VERY clean, very quiet.
Some really tiny ants were seen on the bathroom floor, but were not a bother.
There was one couple there the first night, and we were alone the second night. The owners seemed to be off-site for the most part. There are 7 rooms, with different set-ups i.e. King bed w/ a single. OR 2 queens, all had a fridge, microwave, some rooms had a stove and kichenette. There is a nice backyard area as well, for the guests to use, including BBQ's, beach towels, a telescope, tables/chairs, lounge chairs and a nice garden. If you hear a noise through the night, it is coconuts falling from the tree! :)
There is no pool or beach, but not too far away, you can find the water.
This motel was reasonably priced!! We did stay in the "off-season" May 15-17, 2012.
We were within 2 hours of Key West and Miami. Lots of things to do around the hotel too! Lots of water attractions, restaurants/fast food/IHOP, a little bit of shopping too!.
We would stay here again, if/when we travel to the Florida Keys!!

Been to the Keys probably 15 times and I can't believe we just discovered this Gem. Spotless, friendly, spacious, well-equipped room with kitchen at such a value for the Keys. Will return!
