    A 50' Motel or a pink motel


    We choose this motel after reading several reviews on Tripadvisor and VT.
    It is a classical pink motel.
    The rooms are around a square court with a pool and a parking.
    We rented through internet at 88$/day tax include but I saw in a free booklet a coupon at 68$ + tax (but I prefer to know where I have to go before leaving France).

    Unique Quality: We have liked :
    - the size of our room. Some have kitchen (+40$ / day)
    - the cleanlyness
    - the fridge in the room
    - to have two sinks : one in the bathroom, the other near the bath
    - the outdoor pool, with deckchairs and tables under a canopy : it's a pleasure to have breakfast near the pool though it is forbiden
    - a free continental breakfast (coffee, doonuts and orange juice)
    - to have our car at the door of the room : I like to have the trunk at one meter of the door.

    Directions: At one block of Duval, in the South part of Simonton

    Great accomodations at the right price.


    I stayed at the Blue Marlin on the recommendation of a family friend and I wasn't sorry. Plain and simple this place is nice and clean with a good location. You can walk to Duval street and the surrounding areas. There is a pool, but most importantly the price is very fair. This place will not rip you off.

    Blue Marlin Resort Motel


    I paid about $190 US for our room, that had queen size beds.

    Unique Quality: This was a really nice motel located only a block from Duval St., so we were able to walk everywhere. The rooms are spacious and clean with new carpeting, draperies and bedspreads. The room even had a mini-refridgerator which always comes in handy. All the rooms look out to the heated swimming pool which is in a courtyard setting.
    It's a tad pricey considering it's a motel, but Key West is expensive!

weather in december

by staceydaze

Hi! My husband and I just booked a trip to Key West the second week of December and were wondering what the weather should be like? Also, does anybody have any feedback on the Blue Marlin hotel? Any and all information regarding Key West that time of year will be GREATRFULLY appreciated!!

I stayed at the Blue Marlin a couple of years ago. It's a short walk to Duval street, great location. Nice hotel, a little pricey, but it is Key West. The rooms were fairly large and clean. Nice pool on the premises. I've got a pic of the pool on this page: which shows how nice it is.
I didn't have any complaints about this hotel. I think they even had free coffee and donuts in the office in the mornings.

The Blue Marlin is nice enough, you can walk to old town, it may even be in old town. I stayed there 25 years ago before KW was so touristy and it was nice then.
The weather will be fabulous, 60 F at night and high 70s F in the day time. Unless there is a cold front passing thru there will be no rain.
Great time to be in the keys.
