Loved the quiet and cleanliness of the rooms. The back garden is beautiful. Would recommend the Siesta Motel to anyone! My reservations for the following year are made every year when I check out. I will always stay at the Siesta when I'm in the Keys.
Charley didn't stop me
I spent a couple of nights in Marathon during the Hurricane Charley fiasco. I really wished he had gone another way because my stay at Siesta was great. The rooms were charming and spotless. The staff was wonderful. They were helpful, friendly and made my stay enjoyable. The location cannot be beat: right on the highway, not too far from DRC and not too far from BHSP.

This is a perfect little gem in the Florida Keys.. The rooms are good sized and extremely clean. Frank and Teena were absolutely great hosts and answered all our questions and steered us to some out of the way Keys secrets. What a fantastic time. If you want brand new and modern and want to spend over $300 night stay at one of the new luxury condos - We would rather stay at this special little mom and pop and spend those extra bucks on other things especially some of the great restaurants nearby. We will be seeing them again and hopefully soon.

We found this place by accident, stopped in and the manager had a room available.
The place was truly clean, no roaches!
Free paper in the morning, coffee as well.
A very good place and a good value for the money.
10 minutes to the best fishing places in the world!
I am very likely to return to the Siesta Motel Marathon.
I would definitely recommend it to friends.

We booked this motel strictly by the reviews we read prior to choosing this motel. We booked an efficiency-very clean, very comfortable and for the price...you're crazy not to stay here! The airport noise was minimal as only small planes are able to land there. We took full advantage of the grill and picnic area and pool access. Frank and his wife were extremely helpful and available, literally, 24/7! We came with our kayaks and 4 year old and had a ball! We have recommended the Siesta Motel to our friends and family and will stay there again! LOVED IT!
Just a tip for you kayakers/canoers: Bring your own charts/maps and read up on where to paddle. (A GREAT resource is," Florida Keys Paddling Atlas," by Bill and Mary Burnham) Marathon Kayak, as with many other outfitters, ONLY give maps/charts/tips to registered guides, and they will inform you of this matter-of-fact. The guy at Marathon Kayak was, putting it nicely, RUDE! Luckily, we had our paddling atlas which was our bible! We found some great places to put-in and fish, on our own, and had an awesome time!
GREAT PLACE TO EAT: Sparkey's Landing off of Sadowski Causeway- Shrimp and Bacon Pizza and/or Fish Tacos-OUT OF THIS WORLD!
