We were a little nervous about the hotel hoping it would be acceptable. Well we pulled into the parking lot and we're pleased to see it it is a newer facility. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a pleasant surprise. It was quite large and comfortable. Glad we stayed there.
We had a great time! The Marina and ramp was perfect for launching our 15 ft boat, slips are also available, we left it in the water for our stay. Very nice to just jump in and go! The rooms are decent, very comfy beds, freshly painted and being updated. The staff was great, very friendly, and very protective of the grounds, boats, and marina. We will be back! our new favorite place to stay!
During a roadtrip in which we didn't make any reservations until we rolled into a town, the Yellowtail Inn stands out as one of the best deals we found! We stayed for 3 nights and encountered 2 different employees at the front desk, both of whom were laid back and very helpful when asked about local life. One of them also allowed us into an empty suite to do our laundry - for that, he gets bonus points. Maria, the lovely lady cleaning the rooms during our stay, was chipper and a delight to see strolling around the grounds every morning. We were able to negotiate a better rate for our final night, which we tacked on because we loved the place so much. The ocean view is marvelous. Wildlife - like crabs and iguanas - abound.
All that being said, this is no Marriott (which is why we loved it). The room was smallish, but faced the ocean. The AC functioned, the furnishings were quaint, and the porch was the perfect place to spend an evening with a bottle of wine and some cards. Also, the little "cooling off" pool was much appreciated. It seemed small when we first arrived, but it's all we needed.
Marathon was a great, low key home base from which to daytrip and see the rest of he keys, and the Yellowtail Inn was a jewel in an unexpected crown. Recommended for backbackers, families or anyone looking for an under-the-radar experience.
The whole experience was like dream. A room with a view indeed. Newly renovated. Studio. It is NOT the Sheraton. It's a room on the beach. It's in the Florida Keys an hour north of Key West. You can pay more but you won't get more.

The Hammock sites on the gulf side of Marathon and has a lovely view, no matter what time of day. Everything on the propery was well maintained. We loved hanging out at the pool and Tiki Bar in the evening! Our room was quite comfortable. We would have preferred a King size bed, but can't complain too much as the price was very reasonable.

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.
