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

Our second visit to the Equator... we stayed for a week in 2013 and just returned for another week. Wonderful experience, very attentive staff, have met great folks both times we have been here. 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

We were check in by Michael what a gem this guy was always had a smile on his face. We felt so welcome. We came during Happy Hour which was FREE!! I had pina coladas in... More

I think that the previous reviewer, skidrow3, pretty much nailed the Equator. Equator, with about 30 rooms, is right sized for the size of the common areas. Never too crowded, with a good mix of clientele, trending toward those in upper 30's to upper 50s. We had a fun time and enjoyed meeting and mixing with the guets. The staff... More

OK I understand when there are issues, but when they know of issues and don't inform you at check in? I probably would have given a higher rating had the at least warned us that we would have to go out and do the showers out by the pool but we found out from others on our side of the... More
