Good place to stay in an older conch. Location was good if you want peace at night and local to the beach and main streets though a long walk to the active part of the area. For the 3 of us, it was a good sized room with the convenience of a small kitchenette area and drawer space though most... More

We arrived for a friend's wedding. There was a no record of our reservation. We straightened it out and were told that there was a problem at the Island Oasis. We were given a room at the Carriage House. It was a loft with steep stairs to climb. Once we reached the top of the stairs, the ceilings were slanted.... More

There was no breakfast. I would not consider what I slept on a bed. There was no maid service on Saturdays. You had to drive onto the busiest road in Key West to pick up your keys. It was super expensive. The location was good.

I stayed at an Island Oasis for two nights over NYE which might have explained the price tag. Upon arrival you find that you have to drive elsewhere to check in - this was ok for us as we arrived early so managed to get a space at the guest house and walked there. It would have been nice if... More

I stayed in the carriage house, essentially a garage converted to a studio room. Its old and shows its age. Needs paint and updated fixtures throughout. Plastic mini blinds on the windows with some cheap curtains over. Had to move the bed to plug in phone charger. There was dirt and several dead worms on the floor. Bed comfort ok,... More

Check in at a completely different location. Arrive late and you have to go quite far away and follow a map to get there. It's dirty. You can put a tag on the door requesting turn down, but they don't do basics like vacuum or pick up dishes. Terrible water pressure. Toilet clogs easily. Parking is a joke. Bedding is... More

My husband and I stayed at An Island Oasis for two nights. The room was nicely sized, with a little kitchenette. The bedding is outdated, and the place was a bit moldy. The real problem was the shower. For no reason at all it fluctuated between scalding hot to ice cold. The only good things about this hotel are the... More

We stayed in Ibis room at Island Oasis. The room is comfortably sized. Super small bathroom and the shower head is low. When you're 6'2, I had to squat down to shower. The bed was the worst bed I've slept on since college. Every single night was a terrible night sleep. If I were the management company, I'd definitely invest... More

I absolutely loved this place and the woman at the front desk was incredibly sweet and accommodating! I would go here again any other time we're in Key West! Everything was very nice and simple and that's just how I like it. Our room was the Pelican room which is actually a small cottage next to the main house and... More

We stayed in the Osprey room (top right) and really enjoyed our stay! The room was very large and ended up having a king and queen bed. The house is somewhat outdated, but as long as you go in not being incredibly picky, you will enjoy. Other reviews people were complaining about check-in being across the street and breakfast not...
