Marathon Key Beach Club
Reviewed 26 December 2007

This place has so much potential, if you are looking for a place that is close to the water and a good home base while visiting the keys this may be good for you.

The rooms are very average / dated! Tv's old and do not work very good, cleanliness of unit was pretty bad. Dishwasher had dishes in it when we arrived, bathrooms and fixtures not clean. Seems the place would be so much nicer if they just put a little elbow grease and effort!

The front desk staff is interesting....

Bottom line would not stay again unless they clean up the place. Pool not heated! Jacuzzi dirty. Grounds are average.

Stayed: December 2007

We had 2 couples. Stayed for much less than 2 hotel rooms or a suite, and with condo amenities. Big condo. It has a hide-a-bed, but I would only use it for kids. Laundry faciclities.
We were looking through the marina at the gulf of mexico. Fabulous. Pretty grounds with banana trees, and flowering everything.
Fantastic view and pool. Looking to stay again.

We stayed here for a week while in the area for a professional conference and we wanted a comfortable place with a kitchen and laundry facilities. It fit the bill. It was clean and quiet, though if our neighbors had been noisy it wouldn't have been, as the walls were a little thin. The location is central and convenient and it is set far enough back from the main road so that traffic noise is not a problem. The waterfront was pleasant and the pool was too. The office hours are daily 8-5 and the office is closed on Sundays which made things awkward at times (they had given us a key to the pool that didn't work, a fact that we discovered after office hours, which was a bit annoying). I'd stay there again if I had work to do in the area. It's not a resort that is a one-stop-fits-all-your-vacation-needs sort of place. You will need to leave the resort for most of your vacation experiences, of which there are many nearby (cycling, beaches, state parks, snorkling/scuba, etc.). All in all, it worked very well as a place to have as a home base as we explored the middle and lower keys.

We booked our vacation at MKBC with Chris for Christmas week. We sent a deposit as requested. We purchased nonrefundable air tickets and prepaid our car. One week before our vacation MKBC called and said they would not honor the agreed upon rate and that the rate would be double the amount they had quoted. They cashed our deposit check. thereby disregarding the arranged terms. The manager of the property, Joyce [--], would not take our calls or return our calls. One week before our vacation we had to scramble around to find another place to stay. MKBC and it's staff and management lack an enormous amount of integrity. This information has been brought to the attention of the Marathon Key Chamber of Commerce. BEWARE-Classic 'Bait & Switch' tactics would make me avoid this place!!

Our trip was post hurricane Wilma. That means we couldn't keep our boat and jet ski in the water. The marina is no longer there. They do have a ramp but is in poor condition. I found a large public launch a mile down on 33rd street though. The condo was nice. Everything was clean. Their "garage" parking was nice and kept my black car cool the whole time I was there which was a bonus. The pool was large and clean. The bar could have stayed open later than 4:30 but there are pleanty near by. It was a great place to stay and would stay there again. By the way, I recommend the Starfish snorkling boat 2 miles down on the right if you don't have your own boat.

Beautiful accommodations! Fully stocked with even a washer and dryer inside the unit. Location is in the heart of Marathon and you can walk everywhere. Our two-bedroom, two bath was clean as a whistle. King sized bed in the master bedroom was a relaxing joy. Even a TV in the master bedroom! The balcony overlooked the Gulf of Mexico and the sunsets were spectacular! Marathon is a fun town with plenty of shopping, restaurants, beautiful public beach and even a play house theatre across the street. Staff was extremely helpful and check in was a breeze.

There is a HUGE swimming pool with plenty of lounge chairs to sun on. Great hot tub by the pool. Vegetation on the grounds were spectacular. Feels very much like a secluded private hideaway. Walk out to the street and you are in the heart of all of the activities in Marathon.

We will definitely go back again, and again! Highly recommended!!!

we recently stayed at MKBC for the first time and I was not impressed. I felt that there was alot of false advertisement especially related to the ammeneties. The unit was not very clean to start with and there were these tiny bugs all over the kitchen and even on the bathroom counters and in the showers. We went to the office to reserve some of the equipment they said that they had and found that there was no boci ball sets b/c they said that they all got lost. Down on the so called beach area there was an old volleyball net that was just lying on the beach all torn up. THe tennis rackets were so old that my children were unable to play with them and there was no way we were going to rent the bikes as old as they were. I just felt that the place was a bit run down and that if they were going to advertise that they had all these great activities then they should update a bit. I would not stay here again. I did not feel that we got our moneys worth.
