    Historical Traveler Reviews The Hammocks at Marathon

    Good Location

    from

    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.

    The room was clean but guests are responsible for the cleaning during the week. Housekeeping would take used towels and trash only. This is fine, however, they should offer some type of cleaning supplies. I bought ours at K-mart.

    The sales people called our room daily. We told them we were not interested in Time Shares. We are not hesitant about it, it is not how we want to invest. My boyfriend was at the tiki bar and was approuched once again by the sales staff. Bad judgement, this was his down time and we already told them we were not interested. They continued to call the room every day until we checked out. We did not set up a time to go to "The Meeting", we were on vacation with no time schedules.

    On a good note, the grounds were kept very nice, the pool was great too. The Tiki bar was closed on Tuesdays and opened late but it was also a nice area.

    The lobby was comfortable and inviting with a computer for it's guests.

    Very, very satisfied overall

    from

    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!!

    from

    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.

    Highly recommend!!

    Had a great time. Would recommend!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... additional expense added to it just due to the trucking costs. The keys are along way from the mainland and there's just a two lane road for most of the way to Key West which is the furthest south. Where we're at is about 60 miles from Key West. I'm told on a clear day you can see Cuba which 90 miles from Key West.

    ... crate being loaded into the truck. Maybe they knew something I didn’t? 'How long are we going camping?’ I asked innocently. I was quickly informed that when a small child is involved (e.g. Zoe who is 6), one must bring an entire household worth of stuff because if even one thing is left behind, the child might have a meltdown. To me this approach seemed to somewhat defeat the entire purpose of camping, but being someone who does not have children I deferred to the experts. ...

I asked the waitress if it was as bad as it looked and she said no.

I couldn't imagine a much better way of starting the day... in a peaceful, meditative state of mind before I jump into the chaos of Key West streets. Speaking of Key West, it reminded me of NYC but with the island flavor. The streets are busy although when you wander far out into the more residential areas, you then start to feel the ...
