This property is clean, comfortable and has a decent location for adults not planning to drive much. The front desk people aren't very personable and finding an on-street parking spot is more than challenging during peak times. It's located close to the old Seaport (aka Key West Bight) and a reasonable stroll to Duval Street. The Bight has several good... More

If you stay here, definitely rent a bike! It's about a 15 minute walk just to get to Duval Street. Granted, that's not much, but in the heat and humidity of Key West, it feels like a lot. I'm not kidding: renting a bike on my second day improved my stay dramatically. Just riding around the back streets gave me... More

Upon check-in, our group of 6 (3 couples) were told that two of the couples had been upgraded to the nicer Inn (Albury Court) but they couldn't do that for us...no vacancy. So, our group was separated and we got to check into Room #28. Small, small room which was okay because we weren't planning on hanging out in the... More

We absolutely fell in love with this place! I'm sure it helped that we had booked an economy suite, only to find at check-in, we had been upgraded!! The suite we were given was #5, right next door to the new reception area (across from old hotel). It had its own entrance, a porch with a nice little patio set... More

The hotel was nice for the price. Extremely small rooms. Nice location but expect to walk at least 6 blocks to Duval Street. Rooms have small kitchenette with mini fridge, sink, coffee pot, microwave and plates (nice feature). You can drop luggage off early or leave it there after check out. Receptionist can be a bit on edge when she... More

Good hotel if your paying under 120 a night. Staff is very unpleasant. Good location and authentic feel.

After reading reviews here at TripAdvisor, which by the way, I do religiously and it has seriously enhanced my stays everywhere we travel which is frequent, I was apprehensive. My wife and I were looking for a long weekend away from kids and we werent looking to spend a fortune. Even for traveling out of season in July - the... More

If considering the Budget Key West for your Key West visit the best assessment of the hotel should be based on the requirements that AAA uses for a 2 Diamond hotel rating* (see Below). My Wife and twin 3 yr olds travel to Key West frequently 2-3 times a year and have stayed at many of the best hotels including... More

My husband and I were very suprised at how nice our room at the Budget Key was. By looking at the outside you wouldn't think it would be so nice, but once we saw our room we were very happy! It was very clean, and the shower was huge! It was also within walking distance to Duval st., and just... More

Well located, near Old Town, but no parking provided and street parking not easy to come by. Room was very tiny with the A/C in your face when you are in bed. A few repairs would have made the stay better, like fixing the exhaust fan in the equally tiny bathroom. No one was at the front desk at our... More
