“TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2013

We were placed in the #5 corner room. Extremely small, dresser drawers paint peeling off, bed was old, worn and squeeky. AC was loud and would not run continuously. AC cords hanging down the wall. Lamp on the wall was plugged into an extention cord that ran behind the half fridge. The wonderful 10inch color TV had snow all over the screen and the cords hanging down the wall. Not worth the money, noisy uncomfortable and so we left after one night. We went across the road to COCONUT BAY and had a great experience there. WILL NEVER GO BACK TO SEISTA MOTEL!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: please dont ever stay here. needs to be bulldozed down

The room was very comfortable and clean. Management was friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone in the area. We hope to go back to the Keys next year, and hope to stay here again.

This is not a fancy hotel or resort, it is an inexpensive, clean, comfortable motel. The rooms are large and ours had a full size refrigerator in it. The manager was very nice and helpful (Thanks Frank). We would stay here again and plan to.

I ve never been so mad in my entire life. I ve been to all over the world and stayed at different hotels. From the luxurious os concorde la fayette in paris to a simple motel in texas. And what truly defines a good hotel is service.

The manager of this motel is the most uneducated person I have ever met, he doesnt even show the less amount of respect to its customers.

I just dont want to write anymore about this motel and its manager because I dont like recalling bad moments in my life. I just warn everybody to stay away of this motel at all costs, I would prefer to sleep in my car instead of being close to this place and this person.

Thank you

Can't put into words. No parking! Smell of raw sewer water was everywhere. Even though I paid cash, The motel charged my account for $175.00 even before I got there, It took 3 days to take that charge off. Thhis place is a rip off.

If you need a cheap place to stay this is it. I've read the other reviews and have to imagine these people drink wine with there pinkies in the air too. It's a motel, not the Hilton! Our room was great for what we needed, a one night stay halfway to Key West. It was small but reminded me of a cabin on the inside. Full efficiency was nice but we ate out anyways. It was a little tight but for 2 people it was perfect. Everything was very clean and we can't complain about a single thing. You can use two other pools at hotels within 5 minutes from here, one being near the beach. But all we needed was a place to sleep and they took care of us.
