Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Auntemma Nice Clean Hotel
This hotel is easy to find and well kept. The room was quite large and quiet. It was a good bargain and the breakfast was quite good. I will stay at this hotel again when I get back to the Florida Keys.
The staff were helpful but I found going to the visitor's center down the street was more knowledgeable about the area and sights to see as I was travelling for pleasure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rando1994 Perfect keys vacation hotel
I was not sure what to expect, but the HIE Marathon is the perfect vacation getaway. I have stayed in a few of the Keys hotels and the HIE is the freshest, nicest, cleanest I've found. Breakfast was hot and fresh, tiki hut lunch out back was delicious, and location near Curry Hammock State park made for a very easy ride to fun at the beach. I will be back!

Many hotels in the Keys are expensive and not always up to standards. This Holiday Inn was GREAT...... My only area for improvement was the Gym... it only had a few treadmills.... no weights or other items

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kris60 loved having pillows marked hard or soft
some repairs were being done to some flooring so entrance to the pool area was detoured and it was a bit noisy at times. Did not know that regular rooms didn't have a fridge because rooms picture on the web site were not identified as suites or regular rooms, but when I said we needed a fridge we were switched to a suite immediately. Being a club member is great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leh1944 Reservation
I specifically requested a King bed with a gulf view when I made the reservation and they upgraded my reservation to reflect this.
when I checked in I had a choice of two double queen beds with a pool view or a King with the parking lot view. I was not happy with these choices. I ended up with the King with a parking lot view.
Room was fine, bed comfortable, was clean.No issue with the room but location was not good.

The location and restaurant was great for our travel plans. The first night we had no soap in our room and no direct route to the front desk as floors were being changed in our hallway. The second day the coffee pot wasn't cleaned and supplies replaced, but we did have soap.

The new lobby flooring is beautiful.

I have never seen such disregard for guests in a hotel. Ever!!!! House keeping used the security bar for door jams starting at 7:30 am. Sounded like bombs going off. Radios on their carts and shouted from room to room to each other.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andy1234 Great value in Marathon
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Marathon in November 2013. Overall, I would definitely say we enjoyed our stay and would choose this property again. Our room was recently renovated and everything was new and clean. There was some minor renovation trim work being completed near the lobby but nothing that would deter someone from staying there.
The complimentary breakfast was pretty decent. In addition to the usual cold choices and breads you see at many other hotels, this one included some hot choices such as eggs and biscuits and gravy.
The Tarpon restaurant is located in an independent tiki-style building behind the hotel. I'm not sure if the hotel owns/runs this because it seems like an independent restaurant and I don't recall an option to bill the check to my room. The food was good but the service was not. We arrived around 9pm and the hostess tried to shuffle us into the loud, crowded bar area and seemed annoyed when we wanted a quieter table.

Whether you just want to rest and watch TV, or get out on the water for boating or swim in the heated pool, this property is fantastic! You are waterside and between two fabulous restaurants. Breakfast is the best I've seen.

Two couples spent three nights at the hotel. Everything was easy from check in to check out. Restaurant on property was very nice and convenient. Great restaurant across the street just a short walk for good food and great views.
We are planning another trip back to Marathon and the Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MMRunner Great stay and location
Our stay here was super comfortable and clean. The hotel is fairly new, so it was such a pleasant experience staying here. It was a nice quiet night and I loves the choice of firm or soft pillows. Would totally stay here again, the staff were super nice. I liked that it was located in Marathon. It was the center of the Keys, so we could drive down to Key West or go to Key Largi and keep this as home base. The pool and view for the pool was beautiful.

Friendly staff, decent breakfast w/ hot food items, great coffee, nice size room, comfy beds and pillows. They even delivered a mini fridge and a microwave upon request. Nice restaurant on site. I only wish the hotel was located closer to Key West. Will stay there again for sure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DitsyMitzi Great Value-Much More than Expected.
I haven't stayed in many hotels but I have stayed in a few in different states in the US and I must say that this was the best one in my opinion. Maybe it is because I was in Florida and Marathon is just a beautiful place. But no. I think the price that I paid for my room was very reasonable. I was lucky to have a corner suite so that my room was larger than those of my friends who were vacationing in Marathon. The room was clean and very roomy. I had a lovely view of the ocean and the hotel pool. The beds were very comfortable to sleep in and I am very particular when I don't have my pillow or bed. The staff was very accommodating. I couldn't find the remote control for the TV and therefore could not turn it off and I called them. I thought I would be in trouble for losing (I found it a few hours later) but the person who answered the phone just told me not to worry about turning off the TV since I was leaving and that they would bring up a remote. The breakfast was awesome. Coffee, juice, yogurt, biscuit, bagel, eggs, cinnamon buns-Need I say more???

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocklin6 Top shelf facility
This was a great stay . Having been in Kansas City the week prior and not having a great experience I came to Marathon needing to be impressed. Boy was I ever! From the front desk sign in to the express check out everything was excellent . I wanted to give a special shoutout to the ladies that made our breakfast each morning. Despite some on going building improvements and a compromised dining room they delivered each morning without fail, great job! I look forward to coming back to this facility!
