Great place to stay for the money!

3.8 on July 19, 2014

You can't beat the value and quaintness of this place. We had absolutely no issues on our stay. Sure the rooms weren't 4 star- there was some rust in the bathrooms and less than stellar paint job around the room, but I didn't expect that going in. We will stay here again in a heartbeat!

Highly recommended

The rooms were very clean and very nice for a decent price. They were also located in a highly convenient area of marathon only 5 minutes from a local boat rampant all main restaurants and shopping plazas.

Great Value

Everything was satisfactory, however, some rooms are not cottages. The ONLY problem with those are a slight privacy issue. The walls are a little on the thin side and anyone staying on the other side can be heard conversing. Also, some rooms share an entrance way, the noise of which can be quite startling when neighbors come and go. Otherwise, very comfortable and clean rooms, all in all a very worthwhile stay.

Exactly as advertised- Quaint cottages

My boyfriend and I stayed at Tropical Cottages for a week in May of 2014. We were greeted by a very friendly gal at the front desk, walked to our cottage and she made sure we were all good before leaving. The cottage itself was exactly as advertised and pictured. There were complaints on some of the reviews and I will just say...maybe those people need 5 star accommodations (and weren't willing to pay for it). There was absolutely nothing wrong with our stay or room. The tiki bar was not open, but we met other guests out there each night and had a ball. It's down the street from the water, but you get what you pay for, so I wasn't disappointed at all.

A Wonderful Stay

A great place to stay, very quiet and comfortable

Not a Bed and Breakfast!

2.4 on February 02, 2014

We recently stayed here to great disappointment. The only rooms available were $150 per night plus another $10 per night for our dog. Rooms (cottages) were just OK. Smoke detector blasted whenever we took a shower. This is not a bed and breakfast. There is no breakfast. Didn't know that before we went. We had a gift certificate for $150 which helped lessen the impact. Very great disappointment. Would definitely not stay there again and we don't recommend it. It is simply an overpriced cottage and shouldn't even be listed at

Nice place

All good but unable to connect to wifi. Was trying before 9 am and nobody in office to ask. Password that was in the room brochure did not work.

Would stay again easily

Had a great time touring the keys this weekend and Tropical Cottages was not only a great place to stay but great for the price. The lady in the front desk was very nice and helpful and even suggested places in the area to visit that I wouldn't have known about without her help. Would definitely go again and would recommend to anyone.
