The Equator is not, as its website absurdly states, "a perfectly designed living space, constructed from the inside out without compromise." However, they are correct in saying that "the everyday world slips away" when one is in the lovely pool/garden area. This is particularly true, of course, if you live in the North and need to escape the grey and... More

Visiting from the Northeast in February, escaping 2 big snowstorms, lounging in the pools and hot tubs, this place was perfect. The staff is very friendly and eager to please in any way they can. Breakfast is wonderful with much to choose from. Happy hour and their free drinks gave us a chance to meet others who were friendly. The... More

This gay inn has managed to maintain a key west vibe with an all male guesthouse that is upscale and clean. Room 50 was great and the staff were helpful and sweet. I wish we listened to all of their restaurant recommendations.

It's been 2 years since staying at Equator and we really liked the changes. Yes, the property is more open now since they have acquired the property next door and knocked down the cement wall separating them. A new fabulous bar was built where the old kind of car port looking room was south of the pool, wow what a... More

We stayed during Christmas week and stayed in room 40, which is off the lobby. While we knew it was on the first floor when booking, we didn't realize it was the only one there and how loud it would be. Not only do you hear all the lobby activity (front door opening/closing all hours of the night, phone ringing... More

We stayed Thanksgiving week and had a nice time. The staff is friendly, but sometimes a little flaky and that lead to some minor inefficiencies (really nothing to complain about). We were in an interior room (13,I believe) so it was quiet. Two pools and two hot tubs as the resort was formerly two neighboring inns. The continental breakfast featured... More

Located near Duval (walkable) and Island House (for a little variety if needed), the Equator is a primo place to stay. The staff is helpful, breakfast is included, there is a happy hour each day by the pool (and there are 2 pools). Rooms are nice.

The staff at Equator, especially Jeremy, was exceptionally helpful and attentive to my questions and requests. It was my boyfriend's birthday and Jeremy helped me choose a great room in my price range and arrange a special surprise of birthday decor in the room, which my boyfriend really got a kick out of! The room was clean and comfortable and... More

My best friend and I decided that we would celebrate our birthdays in Key West and really didn't have a clue about where to stay. Well do to some research on my part I decided that we would stay at the Equator. From the very moment that the reservation was made we both were totally impressed with the professionalism and...

I was at Equator Oct 2 -7 and enjoyed every minute. Despite reading many mixed reviews beforehand, I could not have been more satisfied. The resort which is a consolidation of 2 neighboring properties has undergone ( and still in progress) a major renovation. While some rooms may still need work mine (46) was more than adequate overlooking the pools... More
