Maybe in Key West they just don't have high room standards. But the prices are!!!! The room is cold, but old, average 20 years back in time. Shower drips and overall it does not feel clean. But you are close to Duval street, the most southern point, Hemingway House. Just a one time visit worth this hotel.

A large room with a good AC, if it's on all day. The service from the staff is great. Very nice people. The pool area is small, considering all the units. It is clean, which is good. The bathroom is very small. The room lacks the cozyness I want when I return from a long dayoutside. I loved the terrace... More

If you like Hilton or Intercontinental or other bourgeois chains, skip this place. But you'll be missing the Key West charm you came for. Noisy yet efficient window AC, floors in need of a good scrub, and bathrooms out of the 50s. In other words, real atmosphere. Friendly staff, nice pool, wonderful rooftop deck are all great. I'm glad I... More

A really good basic motel for the casual visitor. Bonus is a pool. Not in the busy frontage but in the more sedate suburbs but still within easy reach of all attractions. English people will understand when I say that it reminded me a bit of Butlins. We were given a rollaway bed at no charge for our unexpected extra... More

Stayed here for 1 night due to a short trip down from Miami. Really liked the place. A block of rooms, spacious room, soft bed, silent, great location, free wifi. Small, but fine bathroom. Big TV, airconditioning worked great, refridgerator in the room, all good! And there is a pool! I am a flight attendant and see the most beautiful... More

Stayed 2 nights in a spacious first floor corner unit equipped with 2 queen beds, flat screen tv, table, dresser, mini fridge, closet, and small functional bathroom. It was clean and perfect to just get your nights sleep. We are not the types to hang around in a hotel room so don't need luxury suites. Free parking was a perk.... More

Did the job but nothing more. Ok for a short stay, but the rooms really needs an upgrade. Good price compared to the other hotels in the Keys, and the staff was very helpfull. 10 minutes walk from the Duval street.

Our group, 2 couples, stayed in a second floor 2 bedroom suite. There was only one bathroom, but it was within the back bedroom, not between the two bedrooms for easy accessibility. There was a closet between the two rooms that could probably be converted to a bathroom. The biggest problems were that there was only one small window unit... More

This motel did the job! It was a 10 min walk to the furthest point south of the USA land marker. About the same fo reach the less populated end of the main 'strip' It was a great motel apart from the building work at the back which were about 2 yards from our door. They weren't too intrusive though... More

My husband & I stayed here 3 nights/4 days. We were kind of on a budget so we decided to stay here based on the cost of the rooms & other people's reviews on trip advisor. I would like to say it was an older motel but it was very clean. I always pull down the sheets/blankets & check them... More
