The tiki hut is fine, fun, but the motel is garbage – check trip advisor if you want the skinny on this place, but bringing roach spray is advisable. No, make that mandatory. Showers are, well, the water is wet, and warm and as someone else noted, shared with pub patrons. Otherwise….

We enjoyed our stay at Gilberts Resort Marina at mile 1134. Despite the fancy name its a laid-back kind of place, the dockmaster never answered the radio. They have a pool, bar/restaurant and a little beach. A condo salesman gave us the pitch. I would like to know if it has gone condo now? I think that would destroy the old keys atmosphere. Gilberts is 23 miles from Islamorada then 45 miles to Miami.

The docks are being rebuilt. The marina is very basic, but a safe place to get fuel and recharge the batteries, etc. We stopped hereon Super Bowl Sunday and joined the crowd to watch the game. It was very quiet last night
The bar patrons are not a problem and restrooms/showers clean enough. I have seen worse in marinas that do not share with a bar.
The new bridge has cut down on the bar business a lot.

I docked at Gilberts about six weeks ago. $2/ft./night. Docks are rundown and restrooms are shared with bar patrons (enough said). Still a fun atmosphere.
