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

This is my partner and my third year at Equator Resort. The location, price and amenities offered are above what we researched and found at other resorts. The clientele appear well traveled. It's a comfortable setting to recharge your mind and soul. That being said there still is room for improvement. Due to construction we were, upon check in, given... More

I have stayed at Equator previously before they combined with the neighboring Guesthouse. I have always enjoyed my stays there. This time my boyfriend (who's never been to the keys) stayed and were elated by the new additions and the staff. Rooms were cleaned promptly every morning while we had breakfast. The office staff was friendly and very helpful! They... More

We were very pleased with the resort. The room (43) overlooked the pools and hot tubs. The beds were comfortable and nicely equipped. (We were there with a group and not all rooms have safes in the room). The resort is a short walk to the local bars and the daily happy hour is a pleasant bonus. The front desk... More
