Grassy Key Hotel

What a super rear of the hotel right on the Atlantic Ocean. This is a quiet area about ten minutes north of the city center of Marathon Florida. Being away from the main island area makes this a super fishing stop. It was really nice to wade in the water. You are going to want a floatee to enjoy your Splash Play.

Enjoy a Bit of the Island Life

Right in the middle of the Florida Keys. The perfect getaway for those focused on fishing, watersports, and relaxation away from the Duval Crawl.

I really like Marathon a lot, and you have lots of good choices. Being on the northern end of town is just fine. We looked hard at Key Colony Beach in the off of Sadowski Causeway. If you are bringing your own boat, get a place that has a protected harbor or a dock out back. Some of the hotels like La Siesta have a marina and a boat ramp. Being close to the Seven Mile Bridge is great, as Marathon is a nice alternative to the Key West crazies! We like the Rainbow Bend for the boat and kayaks, which are offered free to guests.

It is important to look and compare all of the amenities when booking along with the use of the fishing and swimming pool. The area has so much to do like fishing trips and so little pressure to do anything. Try the fishing boats docked at the Holiday Inn Express, right behind is the Tarpon Creek Marina. Plan ahead a bit to pick the nicest rooms and location. Any clean place around the area is as perfect for families as it is for couples. It is nice to have a big place so to ask friends to drive down and join us. December is a super time, as many repeat guests come back this time of year. Make sure to do a reef trip with for a wonderful holiday and a step back into a simpler, more relaxed time.
