If you have very high standards for a room, look elsewhere. If you're looking for one of the most relaxed, laid-back places in Florida: You should consider this place your next destination. Rustic environment, sometimes even dolphins in the morning (I was lucky enough to see them when I was there!)

We loved this hotel. Perfect pool/ beach area. We canceled another hotel we had booked for this Vacation just so we could stay here again. Loved, loved, loved the place. We will be back. They also upgraded our room and allowed us to check in early. Great staff and friendly wait service. Check out Breezers happy hour half price.
When we arrived at Tarpon Flats, we were given a tour of the facilities and amenities available to us, which was really nice. The room was lovely and homey, and the full kitchen made it possible for us to stay in and cook for ourselves a few times during our stay. The beach area was gorgeous, and there was a nice little pool on the property, too. We came for our honeymoon and didn't want to leave when our stay was over! Management was extremely accommodating to us, we were allowed to check in early and check out late! We took advantage of the free kayaks, and were thrilled to find out that the hotel was a ten minute kayak ride from two different beaches and kayak trails through the state park. Beach cruisers were also available for free if you want to bike around the island. If you're into outdoor activities, this is the place for you! We loved everything so much we're already talking about plans for our next trip!

Just what we were looking for, nothin' fancy, just comfortable rooms and nice people near the stuff we wanted to do. They were right on the canal, and you could book snorkling trips, rent jet skis, etc, right from the stands just outside the hotel. We were expecting a regular hotel room, but it was an apartment suite with a balcony looking over the canal.
I love the experience at this hotel. It was close to the location where my friend was getting married.
The best customer service I had. I lost my keys and the maintenance guy (Michael) helped us as much as he can trying to find my keys and tools he had. I had to call a lock smith and the lock smith made 3 keys for my car and I couldn't go home that night. I had no money and to pay for another night. Imagine the cost of paying the room, wedding gift, lock smith and food. I was think of sleeping in the car till the next day for the lock smith to help me out mind you this happened on a Sunday afternoon in the Keys. I went to have dinner and when I came back to the car to go to sleep. I find a note thinking that the front desk had found my keys. The maintenance guy Michael told the front desk lady Nancy the situation I was having and she provided us a room at no charge. AWESOME the customer service was great. I appreciated their help when I was away from home.
I would definitely would stay there. Very Friendly and helpful
I was very surprised in the living space of the suite with kitchen. The walls seemed a bit thin since I could hear others cell phones in the early morning. However, overall stay was just fine. they are also pet friendly which is a plus for me.
Really have no complaints about this hotel. Great little pools, friendly staff, easy access to the restaurant, and the breakfast prices weren't too bad, either. Plus it was really tasty. We stayed there with a family of four, and the kids adored the pools most. The beds were comfy and the rooms were clean enough. In November 2014, it wasn't very crowded, either.
