We had booked two nights months in advance based on these reviews. Got exactly what we expected and maybe even more; basic but clean and odorless rooms (stayed in the same block at Best Western Plus Hibiscus couple of years earlier and definitely think that this property is maintained better despite fewer amenities), friendly staff (albeit the maid was a...

I'm a travel consultant stayed 2 nights in this cute motel in Key West while on a family road trip to Disneyworld. To be honest it was last minute and was hesitant about staying here. Once we arrived found the staff there helpful and gave us lots of info of places to go and see and where to find good... More

Everywhere was booked up so this was our only option. Clean room, it included a microwave, fridge and sink. Tile throughout. The shower was good. The lady behind the desk was rude and very uncaring. No such thing as a late check out. We paid an arm for the room but it worked. We were able to sleep 5 to... More

Spanish Gardens was a bit of a dissapointment. I wanted to feel safe. When assured by my very friendly, and helpful desk attendant that we would be. Nothing happened that was bad, but he was insistent on letting us know that he would be staying two doors down. Thinking this was odd, and the comment that they do not book... More

Its fairly basic the room has large Flat screen TV, good sized fridge/freezer, 2 double beds, bathroom reasonable size, table and chairs and noisy air con. We just wanted a place to crash for the night family of 4, kids 13yrs & 11yrs so no worries. We were in a room just away from the long line of units near... More

I spent 2 nights here without a reservation and found the hotel while driving around looking for vacancy signs. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful and showed me the room beforehand. The hotel is one block from Duval St. and not too far from the southernmost point sign. The room price was the most reasonable I have seen for... More

This place is literally a 12x12 room with a bathroom. It was clean, non-smoking, and we saw a giant iguana walking past our room! If you're going to go on a trip where you spend virtually no time in the hotel, this is the place to stay. It is located one block from Duval street, however it is on the... More

Stayed 5 nights at the Spanish Gardens in Key West, it lacked some of the amenities, no dresser, small bathroom, but made up for it with reasonable rates, comfortable beds, great swimming pool, close proximity to Higgs Beach, in-room refrigerator, HD TV, and very friendly and helpful staff.

This is a really nice budget motel in Key West. The room is a decent size. The bathroom is small. The location is fantastic. There is even a nice size pool. Its right on the end of Duval Street near the Southernmost marker. The person checking us in was very friendly and helpful. If you don't want to spend hundreds... More

Not a bad little place and I mean little. I was beyond skeeved out when I found not one, not two, but THREE full size cockroaches having a party in the shower. It's kind of a shame because outside of the bugs, it's a decent little place.
