My wife, 11 year old son and I stayed here for 5 days last April. It was certainly not fancy but it was wonderful. The location was great in middle Keys, the owners/staff extremely friendly and helpful, the pool was warm and "salty" even though its technically a fresh water pool, and access to local activities and restaurants was easy, including the Dolphin research center walking distance away or a short kayak ride around the point to catch a view of the dolphin activities. The hotel accommodations are romantic and 'old school' (as in Bogy and Bacall), always clean with nice decks to sit outside and enjoy morning coffee or evening drinks. If you don't need valet parking and room service at your beckon call, this is a top choice for your Key vacation.
