Room Tip: chose a second floor room it cant get flooded when it rains but it will still leak...

A quaint little, and I mean little motel right on the OCean Highway in Marathon, FL. 8 rooms, 4 up and down each. 2 kitties that want to visit you and a balcony upstairs to sit on and enjoy the weather and use of the internet! Full cable/satellite TV service, kitchenette that I could have cooked in quite a few more days! Sweet stencils on walls and near conveniences and wonderful restaurants makes this a stay for less value! We stayed march 12-16, 3 night minimum during busy season. Spent 1 day driving the 50 minutes to Key West, enjoying the sites and coming back to sanity and less people! Anita is a honey and gives you everything you will need! This is a KEEPER!! Don't throw this catch back on your ocean side visit to the keys.

Room Tip: Ask for the room upstairs and in the back. there is some road noise but we had a very peaceful visit...

I travel with a friend and my dog..and we spent a week in this motel, nice, clean, quiet and the manager , Anita, is a wonderful person and very helpful.
You have to share the place with some friendly cats and it was a pleasant and restful stay in spite of US 1.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2th floor and little balcony

Looks like a small place, although the people were great and very friendly. The motel was centrally located to great restaurants and shopping. The owner is a guy named Bobby how is very hands on and is very helpful. Rates are very reasonable and the room comes with a fridge, stove, and sink. Basically a little kitchen. Overall it was a cheap and great place to stay.

A nice little Hotel and a good value. We came to Marathon to Fish, so it worked out great for us. And plenty of Bait stores close by, and convenience stores within close walking distance. Sea Turtle hospital is across the street, which is cool.
Our room was clean had two Queen beds, Microwave, automatic Coffee Pot, a Refigerator with freezer which we could freeze our fish. They have a BBQ rill down stairs that you can use. It's not a Resort, but we weren't looking for a resort. And Yes' we'd be coming back to stay here. I liked it.

My husband and I spent 5 weeks at the Sandpiper from mid-January 2010 until the end of February 2010. Anita, the manager, was wonderful! My husband had been injured on our trip and we pretty much wound up using our efficiency as a rehab. There is no pool, but there is a beautiful sandy beach located in Marathon that is nearby. The unit was clean thanks to the services of her very helpful housekeepers! Restaurants and grocery stores are nearby. We loved the layout of the motel..situated in a picturesque setting of palm trees and many plants reminiscent of a New Orleans patio! Three cats who were very friendly live on the premises and there is a mini library for those who forgot to bring reading matter from home! To top it al off, Anita even helped us celebrate my husband's 81st birthday by baking a cupcake birthday cake! We loved being there and would definitely return! Thanks Anita and crew for making our visit so enjoyable!
