I had been a frequent visitor over the years to this literal gateway to the Keys, and had not been back in a while, but I was very pleasantly surprised this past visit to see many renovations and improvents to the property, rooms and amenities! Also a great stopover on your way down to Key west itself with great food... More

What a rip off. The bathroom was so bad we really shouldn't have had a shower but we had no choice as it was too far and too late to find alternative accommodation. We were travelling with a group so had to grin and bear it. The food was terrible to top it. Plastic knives and forks to eat steak!... More

We visit Gilbert's regularly, usually on Sundays. Only a short drive from Miami, you get the light and careless atmosphere of the Keys. A band plays live music, the breeze from the sea cools down the fiercest heat, and cold beer and cocktails help it out. Oysters are fresh, fish is too. Super busy waiting staff usually does its best... More

Fun place to grab a meal and/or drinks. Live music just about every day and amazing tiki bar and palm tree beach, you would not expect this so close off the swampy highway. Really a great rest stop to/from key west. I'd recommend the Gilbert's burger, it was huge and excellent. Drink prices are reasonable. Not fancy in any way,... More

If you are planning on going to the Keys and spending a few days in the lap of luxury then this is not the place to go. If you want a place to crash in between adventures here ya go... the rooms are sort of budget motel-ish. Small T.V.'s, small rooms, fridge.. just simple. The bath is a little scary... More

Ok, Yes the hotel is dated, No its not a "Resort" . Is it worth $140 per night? Hell yes! Rooms were simple and clean. Smelled fresh and pretty quite. Tiki bar was a different story. Super dirty bar. I asked if she could wipe the bar and got a wet towel thrown to me,lol.. Weak drinks,bland food, rude,slow service.... More

we stayed at the hotel four 4 very long days. The hotel is an absolute dump! Ownership is only concerned with the restaurant/bar. I would never ever recommend anyone to stay at the hotel. They actually were power washing the outside of our room at 7:45am, are you kidding me?!? Hello, we're on vacation! The owner of the paddle board... More

Wonderful beds. Good air conditioning. Quiet on a Thursday night despite the jumping busy Tiki bar with DJ rock. We'll see what Friday night brings. Nice floor tile in the room. Dock your boat right here. Rock music at the bar starts in the a.m. Small pool and small beach. Very nice breakfast room and staff. But the bathroom and... More

Horrible! Slow service and forgotten order. Waited one and a half for wings. Food was terrible. Lobster bisque was watery . As though it came from a can. Will never go back. I would never stay in a room there. Teenage kids screaming in parking lot.
