The Siesta Motel is located at MM 51 in the heart of the Florida Keys in Marathon. We have the "Cleanest Rooms in Paradise" and have been known for that for over 30 years - many of our guests are repeat business and when the locals have friends/relatives coming to town to visit we are the place they call. Repeat customers and referrals make up 80% of our business - we are full when most places are empty.
Minutes from Sombrero Beach, Coco Plum beach, Curry Hammock beach/park and Bahia Honda beach, Dolphin Research Center, Crane Point Hammock, shopping, great restaurants, Key Largo and Key West - we are centrally located - especially for exploring all the Keys.
