We visit Key west every year in August for Lobster Fest. This is our go to place. Great economic stay...clean...just right for the money. Next door to Annas Cuban cafe. Which was a plus. Only a few blocks from Duvall street and all the scenic veiws. Not the Hilton...but for the area..and price...you can't beat them. Very hospital.

Sorry, but i can only give this motel a terrible rating. Not because of the property (clean, rate, location all great. It's the 14 day resv. can. policy. I can see a 24/48 hr or even a 3 day cancellation but 14 DAYS. Maybe they can afford to be very independent but, the question is for how long.

If you are looking for a convenient, comfortable, and economical place to stay, this is it. This is a very clean, very basic property, located in the heart of the action in Key West. It's all about price and location with this property. If you are looking for a luxurious, amenity filled hotel, this is not for you.

We have been visiting Spanish Gardens since 2002. They always make you feel at home. Clean,comfortable rooms.All we ever needed was a comfortable bed at the end of a day exploring Key West and Spanish Gardens provides that. We always have enjoyed seeing Joey again also. Staff is very accomodating. Great to come back to a quiet corner after a... More

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.
