This place got 3 stars in my book, the shuttle is a nice feature. But it stops running at 9pm....not sure how useful it is here in key west. Customer service was a little on the rude side. Rooms are small and decorated "ikea meets the beach" property grounds are nice, clear pool, nice restaurant. I feel nicer places, closer... More

Same old run down 1950's vintage motel with a new name. Lawn furniture in the rooms, you lock the sliding door with a broom handle, cable TV doesnt work, etc. It takes a lot of gall to charge $273 a night and call this a resort. Sent a crew to the USCG base for work, had to pre-pay for the... More

First, you have to know that there is no real "beach" at the hotel on Key West. We had a lovely walk out to a sand bar and access to the dock that leads into the bay. The rooms are regular beach rooms. Tile floors, small bathroom and limited space. However, the reason that I gave this "resort" very good... More

Recently extensively renovated this property sits on the Gulf side with great beaches wonderful views terrific swimming pool and a very good restaurant too. The rooms tend to be a bit small but nicely appointed and hey this is Key West what do you expect. So bring... More

We stayed at this hotel one night while visiting Key West. The room was incredibly small. We had trouble finding space to open both of our suitcases while we were both in the room. The resort is old and the room was old. The staff was very personable. Very few amenities. The price was outrageous for what was provided. We... More

Our website's room photos, architectural floor plans, square ft measurements AND virtual video room tours add up to be the most accurate presentation of hotel rooms that I have ever seen. We do not lie at all. Based on your comments, I believe you chose one of our Value Rooms. They are small but a good value for Key West.... More

Stayed at Ibist Bay August 26th - 31st and had a wonderful time. The beach front rooms were beautiful, clean and with a magnificent view. The private deck and the hammock was very nice. The pool area was good. I would especially like to thank the staff at the bar - breakfast and evening drinks at the bar was great... More

With all the positive things I read here about my staff, the resort facilities and the rooms I don't understand how one person's reaction can be so negative. I wish I knew how to please everyone, but obviously I don't. I apologize to you for not being your kind of place. More

Best value I could find in Key West, less than $200/night which is a bargain down there. Older property that was well maintained, set on a not picturesque bay. Nearby were several strip malls and restaurants, the roadwork is nearly complete. Hot & humid weather made the pool water 99F degrees and enjoying the $41 crab dinner at the open... More

All of our rooms are well-priced for Key West. Key West is a pricey place. Our housekeepers do a fantastic job keeping everything spotless. Our room decor is new and brightly colored in the style of Florida's Fabulous Fifties. Thanks for staying with us. More

Our band new Yamaha scooters and jet-skis are top quality. We replace them every year. A lot of local rental companies use Chinese "no brand" motor scooters that are poor quality. I am an older biker. I won't allow that. But no matter what quality the equipment is, the quality of the people serving you is the most important thing.... More

First time in Key West and we stayed at the IBIS. It is a couple of minutes drive from the main centre but the free hotel bus service connects well - it may need an upgrade on how many passengers the bus can hold as it can get busy. It was a bit noisy with road-works outside and the air-conditioner... More

Thanks for choosing to stay with us. You will be happy to hear that the outside road construction project is finally complete. Things have quietened down a lot and the construction dust that we had to fight daily is also gone. More
