So i'm going to split my review into the good part and a bad part: The goods: - The location is fantastic, you walk 10 meters and you're in the ocean. - The small patio you have is so nice (when the weather is with you) - The transport to town is there once an hour. - Pet turtles are... More

We came down to Key West with a group of friends for 1 night. This has got to be the cutest hotel. The front desk, housekeeping, bus drivers, Stoned Crab staff have been very helpful as well as friendly. I will definately stay here again. Yes it is close to a major road, but sound is not a problem.

Finding a new, great place to stay or a new restaurant you love is one of the best feelings there is. I am glad that's how you feel about Ibis Bay and the Stoned Crab restaurant. My family and my partner's family own and run both businesses together. Were love what we do and have great people who love working... More

This is for my opinion the typical American motel, which gave us a nice feeling, room was quite small comparing to other hotel we have stayed but was nicely decorate and it seems that all the rooms are different. They have a nice pool and private beach. Offers free coffee/Tea in the morning. It is quite far from Downton Key... More

Marika is home in Hungary for the holidays for the next two weeks, but this will be a nice surprise when she gets back. I am glad you enjoyed the animals. We now have four talking colorful parrots, two giant tortoises who we are nursing back to health after having been rescued locally and lots of colorful iguanas who bask... More

I am currently staying at this hotel and I cannot wait to get out. The hotel is advertised at ocean front which is a lie, the hotel is nowhere near the beach. Rather, it's located by a bay and ocean front experience it's not at all what the name may suggest. You are by dirty water in a bay, no... More

Most people love us. But not everyone. If our fully restored 1950s vintage Florida hotel isnt what you wanted, you don't have to slam us, just say its not your style. Your anger here is based on the fact that what you couldn't get a refund on your non-refundable package. Our policy is the same as the airlines. non-refundable means... More

Stayed here two nights! Absolutely beautiful view! Rooms were nice except the bathroom was really small. Loved the shuttle bus to downtown--allowed us to have a good time without have a designated driver. Loved the turtles and Lex the parrot.

The Ibis Bay has a great nostalgic feel to it. I stayed in a room facing the East on the beach. Great view, nice hammocks and piers to relax on. Amenities are numerous and reasonably near. Duval Street and other attractions are easy to get to from Ibis Bay, and with a rental kiosk for mopeds/electric cars right on the... More

Our location on Ibis Bay is great, but I love anything from Florida's Fabulous 1950s. They built Ibis Bay back in 1956 from the coral rock that was dredged from Key West's harbours at the time. Its a great look and a totally different experience from the past. More

We knew going it was a older place, it was very clean, quiet and beautiful views. Slightly overpriced compared to others but it was a great place. We even stayed longer then we planned! Very close to Duval street!

We love everything from Florida's Fabulous 1950s! But it must be spotless and have the conveniences we are used to today. That's the idea at Ibis Bay. I am, glad it is what you hoped. More

We arrived after dark on 11-17-14 and found the resort exactly where the map on the website said it would be. Thanks to the excellent website videos I immediately recognized the lobby area and got checked in, receiving the key, our shuttlebus badges, and an envelope with helpful information about the resort to read later. We have a fairly large... More

I am glad you enjoyed our resort. Thank you for staying with us. Here's the deal with our ice machines. Health laws changed recently and that forced us to lock the machines. There is a concern that people might contaminate an open ice machine. Ice is now available at the restaurant. There is a sign on the machine to redirect... More

キーウェストのホテルはほとんど高いホテルばかりですが、ここのホテルはべらぼうに高いわけではないので、このホテルを選びました。実はこのホテルに泊まるのは二回目だったので、安心でもあったのでこのホテルを選びました。 このホテルにはレストランが隣接されているのですが、ここの朝食も夕食も最高に美味しいです。ここのレストランのホテルは蟹が美味しいことで有名です。 また、ホテルスタッフも皆親切で、自転車を借りたらお勧めの場所を事細かく教えてくれるし、レストランのウェイトレスもサービスが良かったですし、フロントスタッフも優しく対応してくれました。 また、部屋のアメニティも可愛く、キーウェストで有名なキーライムの匂いのシャンプー、コンディショナー、ボディクリームが使われています。 部屋の模様もとても可愛く、癒されます。 穴場のスポットもあり、辺り一面にキーウエストの海が見えるんです。 そこに朝1番に行って読書をすると、最高に気持ちが良いです。 また、朝にはホットコーヒーの無料サービスが付きます。 一つだけ難点なのが、ダウンタウンからちょっと離れているので、もし飲みに行くときはホテルから出ているシャトルバスを利用、もしくはタクシーで行かなければいけない点です。 終バスの時間がとても早いので、必然的に帰りはタクシーを呼ぶことになるでしょう。 ダウンタウンには流しのタクシーも居ますが、私たちは電話で呼びました。 このホテルはとにかくお勧めです!癒されます!!! I do recommend this Hotel, the staff hospitality is awesome! There is one restaurant connected to this hotel and we tried breakfast and dinner was tasty! Also, we rent bicycles and we didn't know which are the good places so we asked the staffs and they were very... More

We stayed only one night, but that's something we regret because it was a lovely place to stay. Our room was right on the beach. It was decorated simply but full of tropical ambience. It was large enough for the two of us to move around and deal with our luggage comfortably. You open the sliders and are directly on... More
