Excellent. Super huge room with ocean view. I recommended.

Great little spot to stay! Rooms we designed well and align with the boutique hotel design feel you'd want to experience in the Keys. Thoughtful small touches everywhere such as salt scrub on the bathroom vanity for your use. Kitchen was great to have. "Beach" area was set up nice for relaxing and was very quiet and peaceful. Staff was very friendly.

The walls in our room need painting. I saw some hair on the walls in the bathroom like it wasn’t clean properly! Also the bathroom door needs painting!

Great spot. Quiet with pretty water view. Convenient location. Small, older "Mom & Pop" place.

The location and amenities were good but the room was a let down. The bedding was clean but the bed was broken. There was mold in the ac unit. The bathroom shower head holder and the exhaust were broken. The metal on the hammock had been eroded by sea air and broke on me. If you have allergies, do not stay here.

Beautiful place to stay, perfect for what we needed. Only wish there was a better place to swim in the ocean on the property.

I loved this cute little place! It was small and not too busy! We mostly had the pool to ourselves and the view of the ocean was wonderful!! The only thing is that’s it’s close to the highway so the traffic was a little loud at times but overall loved this place and would recommend to friends and would stay again! It was really hard to leave!!

Nice location on the waterfront and friendly staff.

The property has a beautiful area with palm trees overlooking the ocean.

We loved the retro style of the resort. The unit was clean and roomy. The grounds were beautiful. Loved watching the boats come and go.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at Drop Anchor.

Friendly service, clean rooms rooms were a bit small with limited room to put stuff.

Drop Anchor is conveniently located to everything, however has no beach access. You are at waterfront with beautiful sunsets and scenery. If you are on the ground floor you have it made, but the rooms go quick, so book early (they have only 18 rooms). The rooms are older with window unit type A/C's that run endlessly & are rather loud, but you will get use to this within a day or so. If you are not "living in the hotel room" the actual room should not matter, but it could stand to be cleaned a little better.... (enough said....). What takes away any/all of anything less than all stars are the hotel people. They want you to be HAPPY and will do most anything to accommodate you ♥ They take pride in providing the best!!! This type of staff is what takes the cake of it ALL for me!!! They truly care --- 100%!!!

Quiet, clean. Pleasant staff. Would go back. Beautiful views.
