    Great value with nostalgic flavor of Old Florida. Cottages are painted in pastel shades with rooms decorated with an homey, artistic touch. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Setting is very low-key and relaxed which is very inviting despite being right off the highway. Easy access to beaches, Key West and shopping for provisions. Room has small refrigerator and microwave. AC worked great though it would help if a sign was in room to explain where to find the AC control. It took a while for me to find the AC remote.

    I had to go outside to access Wi-Fi. This was only a problem because of mosquitos. Plus, not a big issue since I was on vacation and shouldn't have been checking email!

    A quaint and cozy cottage experience. More rustic than elegant - but this is what we wanted. All was comfort and clean, the staff cheerful and outgoing. We stayed just one night while visiting friends on a two day trip. We've already decided to stay at the Tropical Cottages in December, when we'll be visiting Marathon for a week.

    Very good

    Nice staff, very friendly, good location, solid flats.

    One lamp did not work, as well as toilet has problem with water pressure, waste has pumped ou badly. After reporting it, staff says that is because of water pressure. Hovewer I think thats not true, in neighbourhood also Marathon we stayed also in an Motel end there is works fine ! As a result, I can recommend it for 1 or 2 nights. It is fine.

    The kids loved the hammocks! It was nice having morning coffee at the tiki bar. The staff was very friendly.

    There were alot of ants in the kitchen and bathroom. The toilet did not flush well.

    Quirky "sheds" actually a good standard of room decorated in a holiday style giving a good feeling. More of a passing through location than a long term stay. Two enjoyable nights

    Barking dog in an adjacent "cottage" but thats not really the accomodations fault.

    Very "kitschy" old Florida Keys atmosphere. Absolutely cute as could be and very comfortable. The grounds and cottages are well maintained and it was a very romantic and fun place to stay! Will definitely return. If you are looking for a high-end, posh resort experience, this is not the place for you but if you want to experience The Keys… this is the place! Loved it!

    The only reason I did not give excellent for "cleanliness" is because they forgot to service our room. I would add that when we contacted the office, although they were closed, the staff came back to the site and provided everything we needed and apologized profusely. Cleanliness otherwise was excellent.

    Superb

    Adorable cottages, very kind and accomadating staff. Very comfortable bed and pillows,. My cottage was very dated, but very clean. If you look past how dated the cottages are and focus on what is important like cleanliness great quiet air conditioning, and hot water for a shower. This is the place for you. There is also a full kitchen if these cottages. Loved them would consider staying again.

    Fabulous

    Very lovely cottages, perfect for 2 or also families. Very clean rooms, nice staff. There's a nice beach at 2 miles. Good to take a break before driving on to tourist crowded key west. Definitely recommend it!!

    Easy to book, close to supermarket and pharmacies, close to main road.

    Mosquitoes inside the cottage, it could have been cleaner, shower was very stained and looked really dirty, toilet backed up both days, they came as soon as we notified and appear to fix it. No insulation so the air conditioner was not working properly. The fridge was working, but had rust stains in the door.

    Superb

    Room small but comfortable and clean. walking distance to park, Big Kmart, Publix, Winn Dixie, McDonald's.

    The territory where the cottages are very small. No pool. You can get to the beach only by car (although it is not far away - a mile or two). The room did not have a hair dryer and shampoo.

    Fabulous

    Very helpful front desk clerk--came at 9:45pm and he was still so helpful.

    More rooms should have double beds.
