First let me say that the people here are Honest! I left my purse behind and not only did they send it to me overnight, but not a thing was missing! Right down to the last dollar. I was looking for a place to stay that was relaxed and had some water access.... there is no actual beach but water access with a cute relaxing area by the Marina We got some great Sunset pictures (and saw a dolphin pass close to the underwater lights) and very much enjoyed the small heated pool. The place is older and well used but to me only added to the charm. After all I wasn't looking for a five star resort...
I would definitely stay again. About an hrs to Key west not bad.

Old Florida style accommodations. About 50 miles from Key West right on US 1. Reasonably priced, clean, a good value. Has a nice little area over looking the water. A great place to watch the sun go down. The beds are pretty bouncy. It has window air conditioners that help with their white noise. No breakfast but a Publix nearby that comes in very handy considering you have a refrigerator and microwave. One problem is that hot water takes a long time to show up. Next time I will stay in Key West as Marathon has little to offer. However Black Fin is a good deal.

My husband & I stayed here for Valentine's/President's Day weekend and thought the place was very cute and quaint. Beautiful views at the end of the dock. Located close to everything you can want. The restaurant on the premise was very good... Pet friendly with a big lot next door to walk your furry friends. I would definitely recommend!

This place is inexpensive. It is basically a place to sleep. The marina area is nice if you are there to fish and want a place to hangout and grill your catch. I can see this being very attractive to fishermen and people with boats. It is not a "resort". The pool area is small but it was well maintained. The rooms are basically just cement bunkers that are painted. Yes it is old well used. And something would be just to costly to try to update without tearing it down and starting over. If you are looking to be close enough to visit Key West for the nightlife this is still to far away to be convenient.

This place is a gem. You won't find a better place than here for the value. Heated pool, outdoor grills, beautiful marina, wash/dryer, ice machine. We met 3 separate couples who stay here each year who returned again this year. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Rooms are ceramic tiled and clean. We had no issues or problems and we stayed for 7 nights. 25 cent wings next door on Thursday nights and $5 lunch daily. We filled our fridge and ate breakfast in each day and filled the cooler. Definitely will return to Blackfin next year.

Not sure where or how to write this review without totally trashing this place.. First of all people at front desk ( man training a women) were very nice and very accommodating!!! We checked in a little early and were given a room next to a room we believe the people live there, there was a door between our room and heard them very clearly. Plus when we pulled into our parking spot they were set up outside our door smoking and hanging out.. We decided that we saw this being a problem later since we were there for 2 days.. We went back to the front desk and they gave us an upgrade to an efficiency room and they were so nice about it and totally understood.. Well we pull up to said room and our "screened in patio" was missing the screen and no spring on door to keep shut there was an overflowing astray and a used towel on the seat.. When we got inside it was just dirty everything just felt dirty.. The floor and windows don't look like they have been cleaned in a very long time.. One good thing the bathroom was newer but instead of a shower curtain they use a sheer curtain which sticks to you in the shower.. Now the property has such potential and if used correctly; tiki bar some music down by the docks it would be great..when we first checked in we actually spent a couple hours trying to find another place but ended up making the best of it...

Have been coming to the Keys for decades - was time for a change. Located property using Google and Tripadvisor searches. Is a motel style property with a nice marina to the rear, a restaurant next door and all the conveniences (e.g., dozens of restaurants, grocery stores, hospital, gas stations, etc.) within a mile. Its location right in Marathon was surprisingly quiet due to the arrangement of the rooms. Pet friendly with a huge vacant lot next door where you can exercise your dog. Rooms look plain but well maintained from the outside, but are spacious, recently renovated and tropically themed inside - very pleasant and comfortable. Small resort bay beach to the rear is a great spot to watch the sun set. The heated pool felt great in January. Desk clerks were friendly and helpful. Parking can get a bit tight when all the rooms are full. Good spot for visiting fishermen, divers and those just wanting a nice bay view from the pool, marina or beach. Dive and fishing charters leave right from the marina. Area appears safe. Small lot, but the tropical plants and trees provide a lot of privacy and seclusion despite its location near Route 1. Rooms are a relative bargain with discounts for a week or longer and return visits. Would recommend. Will be making a reservation this week to return in January 2015 with our boat.
