Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Weatherbuff Do Not recommend
We recently stayed at this property in Marathon and was very disappointed. The room was fairly comfortable and breakfast was satisfactory. We noticed a musty smell throughout the stay. The staff would spray a deodorizer after the morning refresh. I understand the climate in the keys it will be a challenged to maintain the dryness. The biggest concern was not having a refrigerator!
To me this was on cheap side of this property. In the warm climate they should of had a fridge in each of the rooms. We inquire about a small fridge and they responded, we have them in our suites only, seriously??
The other concern NO Laundry!
Matter of fact no public laundry in Marathon. You had to travel to Big Pine Key for Laundry services.

We wanted to visit Key West but only for a day, so we decided to stay in Marathon for the first time. I found the Holiday Inn Express for a really good deal and jumped on it. The hotel was conveniently located and very clean. Wish we could have taken advantage of some of the water activities taking place out back but we didn't have that much time. The restaurant out behind the hotel smelled incredible but was a little too pricey for the 4 of us. The room was great, clean, comfortable, and spacious. The walls were a little thin or the neighbors were extremely loud. Since we only heard people on one side, I'm going with they were extremely loud. We only took advantage of the free breakfast the day we left but it was good. Lots of carbs however so I stuck with the eggs. We would gladly return again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by McKindsey Great time!
We booked this as an overnight stay on the way to key West but had a better time in Marathon. Right off the highway, new facility, good rates. You have access by foot to two rental companies for water activities, our were cancelled due to the weather. The pool is huge,clean and along the water. We were upgraded to a partial water view room too as priority members. Sparky's and Castaway's are great places to eat close by with good prices! Sombero beach is also right around the corner. The breakfast was delicious! Wonderful stay!

We enjoyed our Vacation. The Holiday inn is clean and located in a safe area. We had our dog with us during our four day stay with no problems. My only negative comment would be lack of washing machines. It would be nice to be able to wash your clothes. Staff was very helpful.

We only stayed one night during June but the hotel was very clean, the staff was friendly and the pool was relaxing. We actually saw dolphin swimming in the bay beside the pool.

Nice clean room and the service was great. The breakfast was good and simple , so we could get out to the water. The area was keep up and the son enjoyed it for a short time. I would like to see a small frig in the room. The meals at the Tarpon creek are good and the wife would have like to saved the uneaten portion of her meal for for the 14 year snack machine. Over all good rooms and would do it again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tpak Nice hotel but...
This is a nice hotel with comfortable rooms and good staff. The noise I could hear in my room was unbelievable. It was as if the people next door (on both sides) were in the room with me. Noise proofing was obviously nonexistent. I requested a room change which was granted , but it made no difference. Noise from other room's doors slamming at all hours was startling.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cwflower1 very nice and clean; wonderful staff
My 11 year old daughter and I stayed at this hotel for three nights and we were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and professional even when very busy. The pool area was immaculate and beautiful. Very nice tiki restaurant on premises as well as gift shop. The complimentary breakfast was perfect for us, and the eating area is very clean and nice. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The hallways were all very clean. This was our first visit to Marathon, but we plan to return next year and will stay at this Holiday Inn Express again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yeldarb Hotel has everything on the property.
I have been coming to the Keys since the mid 1950’s. I have stayed at small, family owned motels all the way up to the very expensive hotels now available in the Keys. This is the first time I have stayed at this hotel. I think it’s outstanding. It has everything, plus you have a top quality restaurant (Tarpon Creek Bar and Grill) and marina with charter boats and gift shop on the same property. The staff at the hotel was friendly and very accommodating. There have been some reviews regarding children screaming and paper thin walls, I have stayed in hotels from the very cheap interstate overnights to top class $1500 per night rooms. When it comes to children being loud, I have never found a hotel that had walls thick enough to block out the sound. We stayed in room 312. It is opposite the ice maker and around the corner from the elevator. I thought this would result in a rather noisy room. To the contrary, my wife and I never noticed anything. I think adding a second person behind the desk during peak check-in times would be helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Family1993 GREAT BREAKFAST
Not bad for the price. Nice selection for breakfast. Everything seem clean. Next door neighbors were too loud at 3am talking in the hallway. We stayed 2 nights the only thing I did not like is that they did not clean the room the next day, they clean the rooms again once you check out. We had to ask for towels and paper toilet due to them not cleaning the room the next day. Otherwise it was nice.

Front desk was very professional and courteous. I found my room to be very comfortable. The housekeeping staff did a very professional and thorough job. The breakfast staff was very helpful, friendly, and kept everything in order. I would recommend this hotel for both business and vacation stays. There are nice restaurants in walking distance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AngelaM Good Quality Room in Marathon
Overall the hotel is a good choice for Marathon. There isn't many quality rooms for a decent price in the area. The ones that are in the same price range mostly are run down motels. The rooms looked fairly new or remodeled and were clean. Our only complaint with the room was the walls. When our neighbors for the night got home at 2AM, they continued to party LOUDLY (as in we could hear EVERY word of their conversations) until we had to call security at 4AM since we could not sleep and it eventually stopped. The breakfast choices do need an upgrade. They were definitely cheap quality and were lacking in offerings. Overall though as I said its a great place to sleep for one or two nights. Great accessibility to attractions etc.

This was a standard HI in a nice location. My biggest complaints were very slow internet speeds, loud guests, and no laundry facilities. Pros include a great pool, great location next to walkable restaurants and friendly staff.
Overall this is a better place for a vacation than for business.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by here4fun Fabulous late night stopover enroute to Key West.
Made the choice to 'layover' at Holiday Inn one day ahead of our pricey Key West lodging. Arrived after dark, had a fabulous dinner across the street. Even stopped there after leaving Key West.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BDSKW Very Enjoyable
We stayed here for three nights. Were very pleased with the location and ease of finding things to do close by. Went snorkeling with the Capt'n Hook crew that advertised in the lobby. We have been on other snorkeling trips and this was the best.
The staff was very helpful and took care of all our needs. Stored our bikes when we weren't using them and gave us good information about places to eat and things to do.
Will stay there again if ever in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tarabul Had a great time!
Stayed in Marathon for 5 days for my 50th birthday! Hotel was a good deal and centrally located to both northern and southern Keys.
There is no beach access at the hotel but beaches are just a short drive and Key West is around 1 to 1 1/2 depending on traffic. There is a restaurant on site and a gift/activities center behind the hotel.
Beds are comfortable and room was very clean.

This is a very nice, well maintained hotel. The amenities and services are wonderful. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was nice. Convenience to everything in the Keys is ideal. Rooms were comfortable and I found it easy to relax and melt into the ambiance. I really like this property and would definitely stay again. If I had one complaint it would be that room service is sort of slowish.

Had very good experience here. Extremely clean and great staff. My only recommendation would be to organize the breakfast area a little better - it was difficult to get to food with a small crowd. Great places to eat for lunch and dinner within walking distance. Highly recommended this hotel.
