I arrived quite late, after midnight, but had called earlier in the day regarding the late arrival. Very fortunate that I did so, as the office is closed from 9 pm until 8 am! The staff was very helpful, and my room key and location map was placed in a lock box outside the office entrance. No problem. If you don't call, you won't have a room.
Motel is in poor condition, but they are in the process of remodeling it. In spite of the rundown condition, the room was very clean and comfortable, even had a small kitchenette.
The location is extremely convenient. Off the highway enough for quiet, on the road to Marathon's nicest beach, across the road from a public golf course (with restaurant and lounge). Lots of nearby restaurants, pharmacy, stores (Publix) and 'watering holes'.
This is a large motel, it has a large and well maintained swimming pool with Tiki Bar.
It sets on a canal, with an extensive marina.
Of course one of it's main attractions is the price. Great for those on a contained budget.

We stayed in Oct 2016. The off season. So, our 2 bedroom villa was great. Only 1 neighbor and very peaceful. Way better than any hotel room!!! Activities for all and centrally located in the Keys. 1 hour from Key West and 1 hour from Key Largo. The villa was on the west and overlooked the water. Made for some great sunset pics! A little pricey, but, everything in the Keys is, come to find out...lol.

In the central Keys Marathon is a relatively new city, though the area has been developed for a while. Tourists flock to Marathon to sunbathe on Sombrero Beach. Fishing and scuba diving are also popular here.
