“Your key to tranquility in the keys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Very comfortable and quiet in the tranquility of the keys. There is a continental breakfast that is adequate. The staff are very personable and while this is not a 5 star resort, it does delivery a nice stay. There was also a simple, open air restaurant called the Tarpon Grill that was attached to the hotel. Great location and great wood fired pizza.

I have stayed here a couple of times and am planning another trip in November. I found the hotel to be in good shape and I had a quiet room. The Breakfast is the same as most Holiday Inn Express hotels. The Pool was nice and the location excellent. The front desk was excellent and provide me with all I needed.

Located approximately 40 miles from Key West this is a comfortable well appointed hotel with both swimming pool and fitness centre. The room was furnished with a king sized bed, refrigerator, flat screen tv and a coffee maker. The bathroom was clean and well appointed. Check-in staff were very helpful and pleasant.
There are numerous restuarants and amenities within a few minutes drive. There is a restaurant at the but we did not eat there.The quality is what you might expect from a HIE.hotel
There is a free breakfast included in the room fee.
Key West is just over an hour away

Room Tip: We stayed in room 250

The hotel was very nice. There was a small issues with sound from adjoining rooms; but, overall the facility and staff were very pleasant. Very much enjoyed the stay and will stay here again. The staff was very helpful and eager to assist.

Just stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, Marathon Key, FL while the location & price was ok the actual hotel itself could use some cleaning and updates. The staff was very friendly upon check-in. The location was great centrally located within the Keys north and south. I did not have any problems with the sounds from the walls. The pool & views were awesome. The hotel itself was dirty. Stained floors musty odors, elevator & lobby was dirty and needed updating. While this hotel was not the worst it could have been it wasn't a pleasant stay either. The adjacent restaurant behind the property is great for drinks but the food sucks. Over cooked steak, lobster.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the middle of the hall away from elevator but facing the pool.

Had an overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Marathon. Found everything good from the friendly reception staff to the spotless room. The breakfast was well laid out and plentiful. Only down side as mentioned in the past was the lack of sound proofing in the walls. View from our room on the third floor was wonderful overlooking the water.

Room Tip: We were top floor north .
