“Good place to stay for a long weekend”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

We enjoyed our stay overall at the hotel. The bathrooms was not as clean as it should have been when we checked in but not with sanitary issues exactly. There was a puddle of spilt lotion and a wrapper on the floor. The room is typical of the Holiday Inn Express. The windows do not open though and that is disappointing for the water view. The breakfast was great and the staff was very friendly. The pool was clean and quiet with a nice view. We were concerned about the noise issue mentioned by others, but never noticed any problems with it and we are actually very sensitive to noise normally.

The restaurant is fantastic and the bar staff wonderful. The food and company was so good, we ended up staying past drinks and having Thanksgiving supper there. We stopped in every night to say hi to Deli (the bartender) and met several locals. Cannot say enough about the restaurant and hope it does very well.

Dear Shannon W,

Thank you very much for your review. We were disappointed to hear that things upon your arrival to your room were not up to par. I will be sure and let the housekeeping department know of this disappointment. Our windows do open normally, not fully, but they do open. I am not sure why yours did not but we apologize for this as well!

We do appreciate the nice comments about the restaurant and the staff, and I will be sure to pass on your kind words!
Thank you for staying with us and we hope to have the opportunity to have you as a guest in the future!

Sincerely,

Nancy Bennett

I don't usually stay at holiday inns, but needed a night in marathon and liked the reviews on trip advisor. We stayed here and liked it. The hotel is clean, the people that worked there were nice. The pool and water area are really above average. The free breakfast was nice, but people act like nuts pushing and shoving so I would probably just skip that next time and go buy some breakfast. There is a place right across the street. This hotel is a very good location for the DRC, Turtle Hospital, and 7 mile bridge. We loved it and will surely stay here again.

When we checked in my wife found out the hard way there was no toilet paper in the room. A member of the housekeeping staff was next door. She had none on her cart and said there was none on her cart. A check with the front desk discovered they were out and would not have any until the next day. Fortunately the maid brought a spare roll from another room; it was post-Thanksgiving Sunday and they were not full, thank God!
Other than that, the hotel was okay. Typical HIE, but that's why I stay at them almost exclusively.

First time we were at the keys. Totally lost on what to expect from the hotels. We were traveling with my mom so I wanted a nie hotel and this was a perfect one. Attention very good, rooms were nice and clean, nice breakfast included, really all we were expecting. Its a great value for the price, not soo expensive so something reasonable if you're looking for a good hotel and not pay a lot of money

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights. The rooms are spacious and we upgraded to a view of the water and pool. The pool itself is generously sized and heated. There is also an outdoor bar and restaurant. We used the hotel as base to explore the other islands and for a day trip to Key West (1hr away from marathon). It was a good location and there is also a Publix supermarket a short drive away.

I would recommend a trip to Sombero Beach close by for the white sand and beautiful water.

We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is lovely, even though some new floors were being put down in the reception area. The restaurant was light and airy. Good choice breakfast items. Our room was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the location for accessibility to Key West.
