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!
Received a very warm welcome from reception who went beyond the call of duty to ensure our stay was comfortable. Reception staff were able to offer the best advice on what to do in the Keys. The condo was huge with two balconies. Great kitchen and full laundry was a bonus. Comfy bed and very good air con.
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.
There was nothing extravagant about this place. Although it was decorated very nicely with small details that added the comforts of home to the cottage. It was very comfortable and clean which is big in my book. The staff was very kind and accommodating which can at times be hard to find at large accommodating hotels. I appreciated that they accommodated to my late night check in and were very sweet and warm when we were leaving at check out. I would definitely come again and stay a night or more.
