Trip could have been better if the weather would have cooperated. It has been unusually cold for Key West this winter. Other then that it was a great trip and a perfect place to stay. 1. No kids. I hate going in vacation and the pool is full of screaming kids. 2. clothing optional. Not many chances to swim and... More

As a long time guest of the Equator I can't express how deeply disappointed I am in the new rate structure for 2016. Although still a nice property the caliber of rooms do not match rate increases nearing 85% from 2015 rates. The property is kept up nicely however refreshes to rooms do not justify these prices. Pure and simple... More

Have not been to the Equator in two years. Love the new renovations from the new pool fountain, the fish pond and new location of the bar. Staff was wonderful, attentive and personal. I like that there is an employee there even over night to assist with anything. Room was kept clean and tidy with fresh assortment of towels every... More

There are many lodging options in Key West but there's a reason we keep coming back to the Equator. If you are looking for a well maintained, fun, no attitude gay resort where everyone knows your name, look no further. The Equator is that and more. One of my favorite things about this place is the staff. They super friend... More

Five great night in this beautiful combined property. So there's now two of everything. Professional staff, roomy rooms and daily 90 minute cocktail hour. Outstanding. Just a couple of block from Duvall Street and all the action.

We've stayed at Equator twice for our annual vacation to Key West. It has been amazing both times. The location is great. Is just removed enough to be quiet but close enough to great bars/restaurants to still be convenient. The staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. The property has been continually improved and enhanced. A great new bar has been... More

My husband and I just finished our fourth stay at Equator, and as always, couldn't have been happier with our time there. - Updated Establishment - First and foremost, in the past two years, the management team has gone into overdrive to really make Equator special, modern, and up-to-date. The rooms are always clean, and have what I consider to... More

My first trip ever to Key West was in December 2012 and a friend and I stayed at the Equator as a referral. We've since been back 9 times and always, without hesitation, stay at the Equator.
