I am at the airport after spending 4 wonderful days at the Equator Resort. This was my first trip to Key West and I could not have asked for a nicer, friendlier, cleaner place to stay. The guests were all ages some partnered and some single. The happy hour every day from 5 to 7 was a great chance to... More

Key west it self is a charm. Equatorian hotel is more than I was expecting. Especially the pool area. 2 reasonable size pools. Two Jacuzzis. Lot of sun bathing chairs and very nice crowd in there 40s. The happy hour it's great time to socialize and mixture with other guests. Good breakfast but nothing too especial. The only bad thing...

have stayed here 7 times. This weekend the couple in the room poolside adjacent got married. 75 (seventy five I counted) partied outside our room and in the pool until 2 am. The next afternoon was the same with all the nonpaying friends taking over the pool again with very loud drunken behavior. We paid a lot of money and... More

I was very impressed by this resort. I was unsure on how it would be because the website needs updating. I love the plants everything is so peaceful and clean. The Front Desk and Management team do an amazing job. I was only here one night in the beginning of April. I wish I would have stayed here than my... More

We have not had a chance to visit Island House (the "other" clothing optional gay resort here) and have talked about dropping in with a day... More

We had a good time at Equator. Excellent location; walking distance to Duval and wharf. Very clean and well-run. Friendly, helpful staff upgraded us since our reserved room wasn't ready when we arrived early. Good happy hour. Clientele is average age of 60.

We spent almost two weeks here in February, and a great place keeps getting better. Constant cleaning, updating and remodeling (the new bar area is the setting for a fun happy hour every day) shows the owners are serious about making sure Equator remains the prime gay guesthouse in Key West. The day, evening and overnight staff are friendly and... More

We got to the hotel early and the Front Desk was great. Unfortunately our room was not ready so the guy held my stuff in the office which was nice. He recommended we go to Blue Heaven for brunch so we did. If your in town go there. It's as Key West as you can get. The Hotel has a... More
