About 15 minutes from downtown Key West, the Sugarloaf Lodge is perfect for families who love their vacation with lots of water sports. Spacious rooms face the marina, where you can gather with the gang for the nightly sunset views. The lodge has an airstrip, tiki bar, tennis courts and lounge areas to enjoy onsite. And when you want to head out, it’s easy to drive over to Key West and take advantage of the many cultural activities and water sports offered in the area.
The resort has a range of room types including king rooms, double queen rooms and singles for additional family members who prefer a solo stay. Suites have waterfront views and either a private balcony or patio to soak in the scenery.

We stayed here from 4th to 5th of July. The rooms are outdated, but the location is awesome! Lovely staff. Loved the pool area, open 24hrs. We saw the fireworks from the pool that night. We deeply recommend staying here!
I wanted to like or love this hotel but I won’t be back. The description is very misleading. Retro means few to no updates including carpet, drapes, bedspreads. Retro could be fresh and hip but not here. The room was clean when we arrived although it was a full day event to get clean towels the next day. The housekeeping staff said they didn’t have enough and would wash/dry and bring ours back!?!? They never did clean the room while we were there two nights.
The pool is fine. Tennis courts decrepit. Never found the bat house or yoga place because it’s odd driving down a back road with a bunch of trailers and boats and you might be in someone’s yard.
But.... eat at South of Seven!!! A gem! New restaurant in the hotels former restaurant space. Completely rehabbed- fresh, welcoming, amazing food!! Will definitely come back to eat and enjoy the views.
