The room is very basic - this should be thought of as an economical choice, and it is. One of the lowest priced places to stay in the beautiful place that is Key West! If you plan on spending a lot of time in the room, something is wrong and this is probably not the room to do it. Tile... More

Stayed here two nights in January 2015 with friends who had stayed there before. Simple room, no frills, spotless, just perfect coupled with very reasonable price with off-street parking right at our door. There is a pool, well kept and also a little patio hidden in bushes. Easy access to Duval. We could walk everywhere.

Exceptionally clean and well positioned hotel in Key West. In a town that hotel rooms are as hard to come by and as expensive as they get, this was the only affordable option. The reception staff were really friendly. Room was basic and clean. Two beds, fridge, air con, TV and bathroom. Free wifi that's pretty fast. Fast enough to... More

I spend 100+ nights per year in hotel rooms and travel to Key West regularly. Some Highlights: The Spanish Gardens looks lovingly cared for. Property is spotless, functional and even charming. Excellent location on the quieter end of Duval with easy access to a couple beaches. Off street parking is provided for free and much appreciated. Rooms (however basic) are... More

You can't beat this motel for the price and location. Two blocks from everything, clean and quiet. Simple room with no frills. Just what we were looking for in a room to just sleep in. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Once again a very pleasant stay here. Had a room (20) on the quieter side this time. Good value, clean and well presented room. Had a pleasant and informative welcome. Would recommend for a short stay in key west.

One block to Duval St. and one block to South Beach! Very clean. Cold AC. Nice pool. Off street parking. Cuban cafe across the street with great food and the best Cuban coffee! Comfortable beds. Room was small but so was the price!

We stayed two nights at the Spanish Gardens. The receptionists were extremely friendly, accommodating and very good with suggestions of where to go for fun and food. The room was really clean with a great A/C unit. There was ample parking space and a great little pool. The location was great, right by a public beach and a 10 min... More

My wife and I stayed at Spanish garden on Christmas Day and the day after. It's perfectly located. Almost everything is walkable. Ed at the front desk was great. Let us know all of the good local spots to eat and drink. Keep in mind that it is a motel, so it's basically a crash pad, but it was clean,... More

We went here because the place next door where we wanted to stay was full It was very basic. There was no hairdryer, no coffee making facilities; it was just a room, so probably a bit overpriced for what you get. The room was rather dark, and as the window didn't open we had to choose between being too hot... More
