Need suggestion for middle keys hotel

mklingmkling Posts: 51 Greenhorn
we usually stay in southwest Florida but looking to come to the keys this fall. Probably somewhere between Big Pine and Marathon. Shore based fishing and maybe do one charter.
 Most days we will drive to somewhere like Bahia Honda but a  hotel that has an area to fish from shore, pier or wade would be nice.
having a hard time finding the right place to stay that’s not crazy expensive. Any suggestions?

    I was actually looking at Lime Tree Bay Resort. Looks almost perfect except there’s 3 of us. 2 adults and my 16 year old. It seems like they don’t allow more than 2 people in most rooms and the two large units are out of my price range. I’ll probably give them a call and see what’s up with this.

     Try Metacumbe Resort. Old keys hotel turned into apartments/timeshare rentals. MM76, Islamorada . You can rent my week in October $600. Sleeps 4,or more if you need to.

    i would also recommend Big Pine Fishing Lodge. Your selection of Hotels between Big Pine and Marathon is not huge.

    While remodeling our home on Big Pine after Irma I stayed at Coconut Cay in Marathon in the newer stilted units to the left of the office numerous weekends. They were great, have a pool and boat ramp and clean rooms. the older ground level rooms around the office and pool looked pretty dated though. I saw several people catch tarpon and numerous other fish out of the canals right there.

    We have always just rented a house with dockage through VRBO.  You get more privacy and space and it doesn't cost much more.

    Kingsail Inn, Marathon. 
    Those Seasquared guys are good guys...IMO they are mostly family fishing trips for snapper, etc. Nothing wrong with that, but if you're looking for serious offshore...there might be other options.
