      The hotel and staff were great. It was nice as a starting point to travel up and down the keys. It was not too bad of a drive to get back to Miami for return flight. Definitely recommend.

      Historical Traveler Reviews The Islamorada Resort

      Nice enough

      from

      We stayed here over Easter 2004 and found the rooms to be surprisingly spacious and the staff friendly. Breakfast was ample and included as it is at all Hamptons. My only complaint with the hotel was the room price seemed pretty steep - but I think that would be true anywhere in the Keys during the Easter holidays.

      One caution, we don't recommend the dive outfit (Key Dives) a hundred yards away by the bridge. Their boat was old, smelly and bounced in the waves. I think you could do better.

      Terrible experience!!!!

      from

      A few years ago we stopped in without a reservation. My wife negotiated a decent deal with a gal working at the front desk. The owner over heard the "discounted price" and blew up. Screamed at the employee, told us to get the "F" out. I nearly decked him, but didn't want to end up in jail. I used to travel for a living and have NEVER been treated so badly. My advice, stay away!!! A year or so after the incident I read that his roof got destroyed by a hurricane, there is justice. (I hope no one was hurt)

      Two thumbs up for the Islamorada Hampton Inn!

      from

      My family totally enjoyed this Hampton Inn.

      I had gotten a great rate via their internet website, and was actually surprised when they put us in a one bedroom suite. Upon entering the suite, you're in a livingroom area w/pull-out couch, coffee table, chair. There is a bar area w/stools and a full kitchen, including a dishwasher & microwave. Kids were psyched to find there was a VCR & they could order up an hour of Nintendo. Sliding glass doors off both livingroom & bedroom, with views of both the bay and the ocean.

      The deluxe continental b'fast was excellent. There were hard boiled eggs, several bagels, yogurt, cereal, danish, several juices, & coffee. Also, they put out coffee and cookies each afternoon.

      The pool was nice, there is also a beach area w/lounge chairs for sunning, and a tiki bar as well. We were able to check in a bit early ~ everyone working here that we came into contact with was pleasant & nice. This Hampton was also very clean ~ from the hallways to the public bathroom near the pool. This place more than met our expectations and we would definitely return!

      Nice Enough

      from

      I would venture to say that this is probably one of the nicest places to stay in Islamorada. After looking over the area, most hotels and motels seem overly worn. But this one is in above average shape by comparison. It was completely renovated 7 years ago (according to the manager). The rooms are decent, the lobby is nice. The pool and pool area are in good shape. The only negative thing I would mention is that the beach is for tanning only because it is raised and not ocean-level (you probably wouldn't want to swim in the ocean here anyway). The free breakfast is a great perk as well as the free afternoon coffee and cookies. Overall, I would recommend staying here.

      Nice Place

      from

      This is a perfectly nice hotel. Not extremely fancy, but very decent with nice rooms, people, pool and lounge area. We paid $170 per night, but this is doing pretty good for the area, especially if you want to stay somewhere that is not run down. We went to the Hampton after first going to Holiday Isle. Run, don't walk to the Hampton. Holiday Isle was dirty, expensive, run down and the room looked like a flop house - also the people are very rude! Strongly recommend the Hampton.

      Best place to stay in Islamorada

      from

      Great place to stay. Rooms and public areas were very clean. Request room over pool or ocean view. The staff are very nice and helpful. You will like the breakfast. Great place for one or two night stay. I will stay here again. I've stayed in many places on Islamorada, including Cheeca Lodge, and I like this place the most.

      Be CAREFUL!

      from

      While the rooms here were very nice (better than the 5-star Westin just up the road!), we had a dismal experience with the staff among other things. (FYI - I'm not one of the flame throwers typical these boards - I really try to fairly appraise most things - these things really happened, judge for yourself.)

      (a) I got chigger bites from the bed in the hotel room (b) We booked back in March, and when we arrived the pool was out of commission for re-surfacing. They could have easily called and told us. The replacement was the "Breezy Palms" next door - which we renamed the "Greasy Palms" for the cleanliness of the pool. When we were told about the pool the staff could not estimate the distance to the nearby property in yards, miles, or furlongs. Distance is not their strong suit. (c) We wanted to go to the Theater of the Sea, and asked the front desk how much a cab would be to get back. They had no idea (about $10 FYI). (d) When we made our reservation the staff fat fingered the month and had us coming in a month early. So I got billed as a no show on my credit card. I called to correct it, and the person made it right by doing the best she could in terms of rooms and price. Crisis averted, or so I thought. This person (we'll call her Gertrude) also fat fingered the date and we were billed AGAIN as a no show. When I called to try to work it out, Gertrude insisted that she had not made a mistake - and did not offer to make it right. I spoke to the manager who insisted that Gertrude was one of her top people, had been working there three years, and never makes mistakes. He offered to make it right, but not without some expressed discontent - no "I'm so sorry sir, blah, blah, blah" - just an insistance that Gertrude never makes mistakes. I wanted to say that "I've been booking hotel rooms for more years than Gertrude's been alive and I've NEVER MADE ONE mistake before let alone TWO on a reservation." The kicker was when I went to check out they STILL tried to charge me for the wrong nights. In the end, I paid the right price, but WATCH YOUR BILL. (d) There was an unsavory smell on the third floor as you get off the elevator (e) There is NO view (unless you like power transformers) on the side of the hotel that overlooks the parking lot - get one overlooking the pool. (f) don't come hoping to get a gentle beach that slopes into the water. It's a cement seawall with steps. The water is a little iffy right at the hotel too. It was actually better to go in at the "Greasy Palms" next door to walk out to the sand bar.

      I'm sure that if you double confirm your reservation and get a room overlooking the pool, you'll have a great time. It's a nice way point between Miami and Key West. The breakfast was great; I'm sure the pool is nice when it's operating. Don't expect too much from the staff or Gertrude or the General Manager and you'll be fine.

      Very nice property

      from

      Spent one night here in February 2003. Rooms were dependably Hampton Inn-very clean, basic but nice furnishings with balconies.Property was defintely more than I expected! A small but lovely beach area with a big hammock, Adirondack chairs, beach lounge chairs, and a tiki bar and restaurant. There is also a good size pool overlooking the ocean.Located at MM80 with many choices ot restaurants and bars within a few mile radius of the hotel.

      Cant get any better

      from

      every thing about the hotel is great, it's worth the extra money to stay here

      What a Great Place to Stay!

      from

      We only had one night to spend at this lovely inn. We had a one bedroom suite overlooking the ocean and it was gorgeous! average size balcony with chairs to enjoy the sunrise and sunset, overlooking a private beach and dock area. I would suggest getting a room overlooking the ocean, or any room on the north or south side near the ocean end of the hotel.

      Breakfast was fantastic. Lots to choose from and always being filled when stocks ran low. I would suggest this hotel to anyone. I live in a tourist area of southeast Florida and know a good place when I see it.... and this is IT! We plan on going back throughout the year and will definitely stay at this hotel/inn.

      Bright and early the next morning after
      watching San Francisco lose the Superbowl to the Baltimore Ravens, I
      went into the outback for a couple of nights of stargazing. I
      launched at the Hell's Bay canoe trail which winds through the
      mangroves for a couple of miles before widening into many small bays
      joined by mangrove creek connectors. It is important to keep your
      eyes roaming to espy the trail ...

      It really isn't a swamp

      ... It was a long day (we got back about 5:00), but I highly recommend taking this tour. It gave a great overview of the area, history, and ecosystem. One can't really appreciate what the place has to offer unless they experience it for themselves. You can't do that reading a book, nor can you by closing the place down and not let anyone go in and see it. What is needed is a balanced approached --preserve the area, yet provide accessibility.

      We sat up at the bar and read the menu, Claire started to wish she hadn’t said about trying something new now, however, she was brave. I went for the Cajun shrimp sandwich and ...

      Bless him, we'd already decided we were going to buy the stuff at full price but he shaves of nearly $40 and insists on celebrating by pouring us shots of Grey Goose vodka which we all knock back in celebration. You don't get that on Oxford Street.

      So we stagger out into the night and roll back to our hotel with a bellyful full of pie, a skinful of vodka and a few bags of shopping to boot. I think we're going to like it ...

      ... our list!

      Next place was nice enough but it never looked onto the water or even a pool. After we almost killed ourselves climbing the stairs (Mom you would have hated it!) we found out that they do not accept pets- deal breaker for sure. They won't even allow for commercial vehicles so if you had a working van and lived there you would need to take the singage off. Very strange- I certainly would not be able to handle those kind of ...
