... conspirator with Booth in the Lincoln assassination). The fort was made obsolete by the rifling of cannons so it really only served as a prison, but it is still an awesome place. And to have it to ourselves was even better.
After our self-guided tour, we headed out for some snorkeling on a beautiful beach next to the fort. We enjoyed paddling around and looking at the coral and fish beneath the surface and the ...
... we averted them all, apparently. Got into Marathon's City Marina by about 4:30 and managed to pick up our mooring ball successfully. The first time for a mooring ball on JB Frog--always a challenging event for us. With the weather deteriorating because of a cold front, we will stay here for a few days, probably heading up the islands towards Miami on Monday. ...

If you have not seen the movie rent it its great! Because it was 1 lane either way they had to stop all the traffic while they were filming so they provided food and drink to all drivers waiting to cross.

The choppy swells start raising us up and threatening to crash us onto the coral and soon Coman is swallowing sea water and lands with a thump on the reef itself. Nicole, bless her, transforms from boozed-up Barbie to diving professional in an instant and swims straight over to him, checking he's OK.
We take this as our cue to thrown in the towel and head back to the boat, dry off in double quick speed and get Mike to start pouring rum punch as if his ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Hammocks at Marathon
Good location but this Hotel is a Time Share. We were told we would have a room with a kitchen, we did not. We had a basic Hotel room with two double beds, a small round table with two chairs and a mini fridge.
We booked in advance after doing much research online. We ended up paying 187 total for one nite which sounds a little pricey but it was well worth it, especially during hi season. This is actually a time share place so all rooms had kitchens and living rooms (which we really didn't need for just one nite). Very clean, friendly staff and helpful concierge. The only downfall was that there are no official 'non-smoking' rooms but we lucked out and got a good one anyway. Nice pool, nice tiki bar. We probably could've gotten something cheaper but I'd rather pay a little more for a nice place and not be in one of the many run down mom n pop places. We watched the sunset at Sombrero beach and we ate at Castaways which was good but expensive and very 'keyzie' (local) which was pretty cool. Highly recommend.
A Great Place to Stay!!
I wanted a place central to the Keys. I chose it based on the comments of others on this board. I was not disappointed.
The room turned out to be an apartment fully equipped. It was HUGE and comfortable and reasonably priced. The maid even ran our dishes thru the dishwasher.
Had a great time. Would recommend!
Just spend 3 nights at the Hammocks at Marathon. We had a great visit and enjoyed the resort. The rooms were clean and spacious. The pool was also clean and provided an awesome view of the Gulf and the nightly sunsets. We also enjoyed the Tiki Bar - the food was very good, and it was convenient not having to drive to a restaurant. Our only negative was that the activity schedule was not current nor correct. It was disappointing to our children when we went to attend a function, and the incorrect time had been posted.
Great Vacation in the Keys
My wife and I spend a long weekend here and loved it. We will go back with the kids next year. The rooms were large and clean. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. They also have a computer in the lobby you can check your email on. What a GREAT idea! It is about 1 hour drive to Key West and 2.5 hours to Miami. Don't pass on this vacation.
Would do it again!
This is a nice property. The room was as advertised, spacious, nice view. The staff was knowledgeable and had a great attitude. If they could have made the weather better it would have been perfect! They have onsite boat rentals and charters, a tiki bar and only a bar type restaurant which is fine because there are many great restaurants in the area, like the Key Colony Inn.
After seeing some of the competing choices in the Middle Keys we were glad we made this choice.
Lovely place to stay
Nestled in the heart of the Florida Keys, near the 7 mile Bridge. My husband and I stayed here over Christmas. The staff were very warm and friendly, the room was very clean, comfortable and attractive. The grounds truly capture the tropical atmosphere with a tikki bar and pool in the back, fronting the gulf. It would be very difficult to say anything negative about this place. We will defintely be back.
Great hotel - no longer a Best Western
We stayed here twice in '03. This was a nice, clean, new hotel. It seems to have become a timeshare under the name of "Hammock's of Marathon" due to open in July, '04, but only to timeshare owners. I understand there may be some rentals in the future at $250+ a night. Too bad.
My family loved this hotel. We had a great time.
My family went to this hotel in the spring of this year for spring break. The people working here were great. They were very kind and always said hello when you came through the door. My family really wants to come back again, and if we can next year then we will be back.
Thanks for a great time. The rooms are clean, the pool feels great and the Tiki Bar out back is really relaxing.
Beautiful view, good value
Stayed 2 nights here in December 2003. This property is very well kept, with nice size rooms and an attractive pool area. The continental breakfast is above average, an excellent fresh fruit salad was served both mornings. Ask for a bay-view room, these also overlook the pool area. The private balcony allowed us to sleep with the sliding doors wide open (didn't see a single bug!) and fall asleep to the sounds of rustling palms - almost reminded me of Maui! Tiki bar closes at 7PM! My only complaint - in an attempt to give as many rooms as possible a view, we walked endless hallways to get to our room from the lobby, ask for a close one if this is a problem.
