"if you like top of the line hotel this is not it"
i was expecting something better. the pictures did the motel no justice. no A/C in the hallways. the beds weren't confortable. bathroom shower old. pillows were stained. i personally didn't like it. i would rather pay more in a nicer place. the bar in the pool sucked!. they had a radio on for music. not my taste at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay here!"
The location and view of this hotel is nice however it is NOT a resort! The carpeting is disgusting! I was afraid to walk barefoot on it! The room smelled moldy. The furniture is from the sixties! They have old fashioned room keys. I returned the key twice and the replacements didn't work either. Walls need to be painted! We paid $175 a night. Total […] disappointment! The property is bank owned. Do not stay here! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent assistance from front desk in recommending restaurant and giving directions. Resort is lovely but dated. Room was spacious but bathroom fixtures need replacing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't Stay Here If You Have A Choice"
I booked this room for one of my employees who was doing work in the Keys. This was one of only a few rooms available in the area for the date needed. When he pulled back the sheets on the bed he found a woman's bracelet in the bed and it appeared to him that the bed sheets had not been changed and that only the bed was made. He brought the bracelet […] to the front desk to return and inquire about the bed and the only response he received was that the front desk person didn't want the bracelet and he was welcome to keep it. Will never consider booking this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful location, real "Keys" feel. Restaurant was closed, which was inconvenient, but the Tiki Bar was fun (closed very early). Marina view. Quiet and comfortable. Pool and Hot Tub were excellent. No continental breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bad beds, way over priced for quality, not the cleanest,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Within one hour of Key West"
I found the grounds to be very tropical with all the mature trees. The hotel needs a makeover...but very clean and comfortable for our one night stay. We will stay there again...after the remodel. We plan to visit again as we did not have enough time to explore the Marathon area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with nice swimming pool!"
The hotel is a bit older, but is in a setting that is away from the noise of the road, has a great swimming pool, clean and convenient. If you're all about luxury, this isn't for you. If you're looking for a nice clean room, this is your place.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay. nice pool and hot tub area. location servrd well to explore the keys. saw signs that the hotel was about to change ownership. I hope the prices do not change for a future travel. the area had many food options close and reasonable. I wonder if this is the reason there was not a restaurant on the premesis. over all. liked and would […] return if the price was right. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great restaurant next door. Didn't have enough time to enjoy the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No beaches in the Keys to really speak of"
Nice location but rooms are a little dirty. Bathrooms not cleaned well enoughGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location....but bad hotel environment"
The resorts must of been a great place to stay a long time ago. Yes, a great location and a good size pool area, but that's it. Nothing updated at all. Rooms very musty smelling and WIFI limited. Hallways are dark and gloomy and outside grounds needs a major clean up.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is the Keys"
On the plus, they were friendly the grounds are beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a one night stay"
we were visiting friends in the area and just needed a room for one night - room was quiet and comfortable. Enjoyed the pool. Certainly, it is older and could use some TLC but was just fine for our purposes and quite reasonable for the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room smelled ...so bad I could not sleep... left in morning cause I couldn't sty there..Maintenance of the building was aweful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice large pool. Hotel is being renovated and should be great when finished.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All we needed was a place to sleep on our way to Key West. Went there with low expectation and was pleasantly surprised. We were 4 people in one room and it was adequate. Could use updating especially the bathroom but it was clean so we were ok. Only complaint is the toilet rocked when you sit on it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not as bad as you might think"
This hotel is old and tired. It's in need of some serious renovation. And renovation is on the horizon if the locals are to be believed. The hotel is scheduled to close in June and will be torn down and replaced by a more upscale hotel. There's a lot of this going around in the Marathon area, so I wouldn't count on a new hotel going up on the site anytime […] soon. It was not as horrible as many of the reviews would lead you to believe. The room was fairly clean & bed comfortable. Hotel's website pics were 20 yrs out of date Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Resort was full of trees and we loved it."
We loved the resort and that we could walk out in the marina and sit and watch the boats come and go. The pool was beautiful and very clean...along with the Hot Tub.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room, common grounds, and pool were always clean and comfortable. The hotel was located near major boat-chartering areas (Capt. Wayne Gatling - "Fishin' Fool" *****), fine restaurants that will cook your catch (Key Colony, Castaways), and great bars (Dockside, Key Colony). We had 4 days of fantastic sunny weather (2-4 thru 2-7) and amazing fishing in […] the Gulf. We do this trip every year for the last 5 years and will come again to Banana Bay next year.

The hotel was in a great location. The rooms had an Oder to them and the wifi did not work. When I complained to the front desk they claimed that this happens when the are sold out. If they know they have an issue when sold out them they should correct this problem instead of just telling guests they know about this ongoing issue....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"BIG POOL is COOL"
The place is pleasantly tucked in lots of trees and vegetation, yet right off the highway. Our room had a private balcony. It's older - but nice. The pool is deep and big. The TikiBar closes at 10 - and dont expect any smiles from the bartender. She told us that the place would soon sell - so if you wanna check it out - better do so soon. The hot tub […] is big and powerful. And there's lots of places around the grounds to "get lost" if you choose. I didn't check out the marina - but to get to the beach; Sombrero Beach, it's a 10 minute drive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Yikes, you get what you pay for and less"
Old Hotel that needs major renovations even though it is functional. Felt like I was at summer camp. Enjoyed the pool. Glad we were just wanting a place for one night. I could not imagine staying any longer, like on a vacation.stay. We made the reservation two weeks in advance for a Monday night stay.....When we arrived the rest of the place the place […] was all booked up with no vacancy. They must be doing something, right. ??

Rooms were old. Landscape is in need of help. Closed restruant Closed beach. Nice pool and hot tub. Tiki bar with beer, lwine and hotdogs,Genuine Expedia guest review
The grounds are gorgeous, the pool is great, the rooms are a bit musty. I would definitely return because the setting is gorgeous, but the hotel itself is just ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"WOULD NOT RECOMEND,TERRIBLE FOR PRICE"
NONEXISTANT SHOWER , PANCAKES FOR PILLOWS , HARD BED SHOULD HAVE SLEPT ON THE DURTY FLOOR.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cozy mom & pop motel"
We enjoyed our stay here in Marathon. It was more affordable than a place in Key West and had many places to eat, shop, and stay. Banana Bay has been sold and we heard the new owners will remodel it starting in July 2014.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not as good as it seemed in the pics"
Weird smell inside the room. The bed had no curtains. The toilet didn't flush quite well. Everything else was fine. We were able to do the check in ahead of time. Very quiet place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cleaning staff needs improvement.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hallways filthy. Parking landscape unkept. Office help at night not helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
We spent two nights here and were generally pleased with our stay. The resort is somewhat dated, but clean and the bed was comfortable. The layout is nice and there is a marina, which always interests us. Overall, I would recommend this as a reasonably priced and clean place to stay on Marathon. I would not hesitate to suggest that friends stay her […] e. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Garden view" Turned out to be a dishevelled collection of mangroves & palm trees broken and not maintained with trash littered among the palm fronds and overgrown vegetation. Ceiling fan blades we're dirty. Hotel website pictures appear to have been taken years agoGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice place for overnight stay, maybe longer. Room was clean and employees friendly. Older hotel. I do wish hotels would wash their bedspreads on a more regular basis. But that is a general complaint, not specific to Banana......Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You get what you pay for. With rates very high in season, we knew this was not going to be a stellar location for this price. The place could be phenomenal - beautiful grounds, lots of plants and trees. But it has seen better days. Shabby and in need of new paint, decorating and a deep cleaning. The pool area is great, the pool water clean, warm and […] inviting. Tiki bar a nice convenience. The hot tub also clean and operates well. No information provided on the 'water sports' available on site. The restaurant has been closed for 2 years. Rooms need to have carpeting shampooed or at least vacuumed well, esp. under the bed and along the baseboards. Also, we paid for a room with a marina view, and had a big tree in front of our balcony blocking the view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
overall was good for the price paid,the only bad thing was the checkout time, they open the office at 7AMGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"wedding anniversity stay"
For a short trip and romantic. GreatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Bed mattress was very old, creaky and bad shape. Would not want to have to sleep on it for more than a night. The pool area could use a little sprucing up.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room had a damp feeling. Turned the air conditioner on for a half day and the room was fine. Great location. Nice people. Beautiful surroundings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They are preparing to remodel and apparently have dropped maintenance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location. Safe for 4 elderly women traveling"
We spent 2 nights with 2 rooms. One room was never cleaned.no clean towel and beds never made up or trash emptied. The 2nd. Beds were made up but no clean towels no clean glasses.very poor service. The wallpaper was pealing in places. Hair dryer was replaced when we complained about the condition of the first one. Needles to say we would not recommend […] this RESORT. In its day it was probably lovely but terribly neglected now. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

It was okay for the price we paidGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for-All about the location"
Old hotel with OK maintenance but needs updating. Old bathroom, old furniture. One tennis court is abandoned. Wi-Fi was complimentary. Cleanliness was OK but could have been better. Pool OK. Friendly staff. But the price was much lower in comparison to other hotels in the same area. Hotel located right by the sea. Good for a short stay in the Keys.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Banana Bay Marina & Resort"
It should not be called a resort, because it has nothing in common with a resort. My room was not ready at check in time. I received my room keys 45 minutes later without any refund option. The room I had needs to be updated. I had to wait 10 minutes to be able to take shower in warm water.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Quiet place"
Super uncrowded with plenty of leisure room. Large pool and not very used. If u like quiet getaway weekends, this is the placeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel. Good deal"
I booked this hotel for 70 dollars per night. I was concerned about the condition of hotel rooms. But it turned out to be a pleasing hotel. The room is old but clean and big. Facilities is good. Plenty towels and the bathroom has warm lighting. The hotel has its own pool and hot bath tub. With the price, the hotel is doing great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Standard, old school Key's hotel"
This is a real, old school Key's experience. The room is clean but dated. The property is right on the water on the gulf side. The staff is super nice and friendly. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very accomendating our room was clean and there wasn't any noise from other rooms or street traffic noise. We were very pleased with our stay and would certainly stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

the layout of this hotel is superb. the pool is great along with the tiki bar and hot tub in the total tropical environment is absolutely splendid because of the canopy of mature trees that is around the hole Hotel area: Made me feel right at home...if you like natue or a natural environment. it was one of the finest places that I've stayed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
