We stayed in room #8 on the second floor. It was a clean room with tile flooring and white bedding that looked pristine. We had two queen size beds and each had six fluffy newer-looking pillows. The room could use an update as the décor was older and lacking and the bath was small with old tiling. Take your own... More

This hotel is sweet and serene. Not fancy but a good deal for the price. It was clean and they were super accommodating if my dog. I had to leave early from my stay when I got a call about a family emergency. The owner was very kind and understanding. I was refunded my money even though I left at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night during a trip through the keys, mainly to paddle board in different areas. We live in Florida and were not interested in anything overly touristy, so we opted for old Keys hotels along our way. We both agree this was the highlight hotel of our trip (esp since we ended up...

We were in room #1. It was clean: sheets, floor, kitchen, bathroom. The kitchen was not well equipped but we didn't want to cook. The bathroom was clean but didn't have enough towels or a hair dryer. The views and grounds were beautiful but the fermenting seagrass smells bad at low tide. You can't swim here but we weren't planning... More

We booked this hotel after realizing that it was going to be too expensive to stay in Key West. I found this hotel on Expedia for a decent price. First, the woman who works and lives there is an absolute sweetheart. She took great care of us and was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Then the maintenance man was very sweet... More

Never been so grossed out in a hotel room! - I booked this hotel for our trip to the Keys based on the price and location. (Bad decision on my part) The photos looked like we would be staying at a small, nice hotel on the water - thanks photoshop. We checked in and went up to our room (i... More

I have never been so unsatisfied with any hotel stay in my life. Number one when I booked I was told I had one queen Bed and a pull out bed. Perfect. Then I called two confirm and they said they "upgraded" me to a two queen bed room. Even better I thought... we get there and the woman was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here because everything in Key West was super expensive. I immediately was happy with what I found. Beautiful view and a perfect room with a stove and full sized fridge! There was a hammock outside that we layer on. I honestly wish we stayed our whole Florida trip there but we already had other places... More
