Why we like it

  • Perfect for divers, this destination offers a dive shop, a dive boat, and excursions to the marine preserve
  • A vintage property, this place has all the character of Old Florida
  • This is a great destination for the budget-conscious traveler
  • The on-site tiki bar restaurant has some great specials, from taco tuesday and wing wednesday to happy hour
  • Relax in the evenings with a swim in the property’s outdoor pool

What you need to know

  • Most rooms overlook the canal behind the property
  • If you aren’t a diver already, you can learn here
  • Well maintained, this property is on the older side
  • The building is structured like a motel, with exterior access to rooms rather than interior hallways
  • There is live entertainment at the restaurant/bar on most nights, so stop by for a show


Dockage Available Pet Friendly Swimming Pool Oceanfront (Sunrise) Bayfront (Sunset) On-site Restaurant Bicycles Kitchen Adults Only


Halfway between Key West and Marathon, this hotel lets you enjoy both destinations with ease. Or you can skip all of that and explore the natural beauty of the nearby Keys. This particular island is a little more laid back than the major towns, making it easy to enjoy a peaceful stay.

  • Distance to Bahia Honda State Park: 9.6 miles
  • Within walking distance: A restaurant and a grocery store plus the Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary
  • Transportation: The property has a dive boat, but you probably want your own car
