How I wish I could find a Harborside Motel at every travel destination! But perhaps this modest property simply happens to fit my personal tastes… This was my 5th trip to Key West, and the Harborside certainly provided the greatest bang for the buck of any place I have stayed in Old Town. Especially appreciated: Location – quiet, with pool... More

We loved our stay with Harborside. It was very clean and great friendly staff. Bob was so friendly and helpful. In walkng distance to town. They also rent house boats there. Our next visit we plan on renting one. Reasonably priced.

We stayed in one of the floating hotels which was very nice and clean. Great price compared to what you get in quality, cleanliness, atmosphere etc. We loved it and will be back. We stayed during Thanksgiving holidays.

Stayed Thanksgiving day weekend for one day. Hotel Employee's very friendly. The room is old looking and the bathrooms are below average. Quite a distance to Downtown. There is no Hotel staff late in the evening. Locked myself out of room when I went for coke however they have a number you can call. The security service showed up very... More

During October, after visiting Miami, started suffering from Key West accommodation sticker shock until we found this ideal 18- room motel. In a marina, room fully equipped, and only about a 15 minute leisurely walk to Duvall Street. Stayed three nights. Reception staff most friendly.

My Husband and took a spur of the moment trip to Key West November 11th and November 12th with no reservations. We arrived late on the 11th and opted for a large chain, and although clean and nice, we were looking for a little more charm. We rented bikes at the Hotel and headed towards the Old City looking for... More

When booking a one-night stay in Key West, we had great difficulty finding a place that allowed only 1 night and didn't cost upwards of $250. We did not have flexible dates and happened to be booking when a (unrelated to our stay) festival was also going on in town. A friend had suggested this motel. We looked at it... More

From the street I wouldn't have guessed how charming this motel was inside. We had a first floor room with a partial wooden fence sheltering a stone floored patio with table and chairs. Inside, the room was cozy and nicely furnished with a small breakfast table for two, a full sized refrigerator, microwave, sink and large counter space. The pool... More

My parents (which are btw very difficult to satisfy with hotels, restaurants etc.) were travelling on April 1st, 2013 to Key West. We called the tourist office there and they've told us there's no chance to book a hotel room for that day on Key West, except of the Harborside Motel. If you think of Motels, the first which comes... More

We really wanted to like this place. The mattress was worn. Polyester bedspread soiled. Just about everything in the room had a musty smell. We could not decipher where this horrible smell was coming from. On the positive side, the pool was nice and staff was helpful. BBQ area was a plus. Based on the discomfort of the musty smell...
