Last minute on 4th of July weekend a friend and I decided to go to Key West. Called this place and they had one room left! Carl on the phone was really great and laid back. Price was steep for what you get but that was probably b/c it was last min and a holiday weekend. Basic room, good location... More

We had been coming to the Keys for years and know how hard it is to find a nice, clean, quiet hotel for a reasonable price. We came across Spanish Gardens and thought that we would give it a try. It is close to the beaches, Southern Most point and across the street from a nice deli. It is quite... More

The highlights of this place were the powerful air conditioning, water pressure and location! The price is right- comparatively speaking and they have a pool. The room was small, but clean & comfortable- the gentleman in the office was not the owner but you would have thought he was with his congeniality... The experience was a positive one- it's a...

The service was absolutely wonderful. The man at the front desk gave an awesome introduction to Key West and told us where all the high points on the island were. The rooms are simple,but they are much cleaner than many other nicer hotels I have stayed in. Its located right next to Duval Street. Once we got into the room,... More

For key west prices this place was great. Great location right near duval street and the southernmost point. It was nice to be able to walk down duval street yet the hotel is located on the quieter side for a good nights sleep. They were super friendly and helpful at the front desk. Had a nice little pool which was... More

Wonderful time, a block from the beach, 2 blocks from the southern most point (a must see) and across the street a small grocery store/deli/cafe, plus bike rental ( a must do bikes-easiest way to get around Key West). Also a souvenir store next door to bike rental. Motel has small frig and cable tv. Wished it had small microwave,... More

Can’t go wrong with this spot. Great location near all of the amazing attractions of the Keys. Beach, Southern Point , Bars, Restaurants, Shops and so much more. Rooms are not huge but good enough to rest in a safe and very clean place. Front desk was very helpful with main spots to visit. Highly recommend if you haven’t made... More

We stayed at the Spanish Gardens Motel for four nights while in Key West. We loved the location.The motel is on the south end of Simonton St. one block off of Duval. There is a nice Cuban Restaurant/small store across the street. A small but very nice public beach a block or so away and the southern most point buoy... More

Needed a couple of rooms in a pinch, friends suggested this place. Ed the manager was wonderful, gave us two beautiful rooms. Price was great even though it was spring break. Pool is nice, great location too. Cant say enough good things about Spanish Gardens and the staff!

Spanish Gardens Motel is not a resort. It ain't a Hilton. It's a 1950's motel, like the only ones that used to be on The Keys. We've stayed there many times and like the location. Its a room. Simple. Its impeccably clean. Recently they changed out the toilets, that used to be inconvenient in the small bathrooms. Now they have... More
