A beautiful place and beautiful people. The first morning at breakfast I was greeted with smiles and a welcoming and outstanding staff. The outside covered porch was a perfect setting to the start of my day. Was in Key West for a family wedding and my family who were staying at a different resort came to eat breakfast at "The Hot Tin Roof" every morning because it was just so relaxing and friendly and the food was not only delicious but the presentation was fabulous. Would stay here again if I ever have the opportunity to come back. Thank you to all the staff at Ocean Key for a wonderful and pleasant stay.

Room Tip: A room on the upper floors captures the spectacular views. Sunset pier is a great night spot

If you like to be close to the action, then this is a great location. It's right next to Mallory Square, where you can see the beautiful sunset. The pool is small but very pretty, over looking the ocean. Our room was a junior suite. It was roomy and clean.

nothing special, average hotel, bad smell inside the elevators, old carpets in the room and !!!
amateur breakfast.
I would say, it is ok if you want an express overnight KW visit.

otherwise I suggest another alternative more charming and less noise place (boardwalk
and open public bar)

pro: what a sunset !!! but this is KW is all about.

recently had the pleasure to spend a couple of nights at this hotel
on arrival their was a slip up on the booking, someone had put the wrong dates of our stay down and the hotel were not expecting us, leaving us in the lobby for over half an hour after a three hour drive is not a good start, but after this things just got better and better.
an upgrade to an island view suite gave us breathtaking views .
the room was large well equipped as was the bedroom as was the bathroom....simply stunning
service was excellent food was stunning.
key west itself is a hippy go lucky place full of fun and frolic , but after our tour of Florida staying in some fantastic hotels on both east and west coast this was the gem , the one my wife and I said was the one that stood out, after 3 weeks in Florida this was the Icing on the cake.
in one word SPECIAL a little expensive but very special.
cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: island view rooms and suites for the sunsets {wow}

We have just returned from a week at the Ocean Key Resort and Spa and all I can say is we had a wonderful time! The hotel is everything it promises on the website. The room was huge and very well maintained. The pool area was fairly small but very picturesque and there was never a problem with a lack of sun beds. Although we didn't have dinner at the hotel we did have breakfast and meals at the pool bar and the quality was excellent. We did lose Wifi in our room for a couple of days but this didn't spoil our stay - you shouldn't be surfing the web on your holidays anyway!
Most importantly the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay a very happy one. in the 24 hours since we returned home I have recommended the hotel to everyone I've spoken to. If we return to Key West we will definitely return to the Ocean Key Resort & Spa.

We have stayed at this property before and on our last stay we had an issue with the restaurant for breakfast. This time besides the Hotel Services being top notch we decided to try a breakfast on the balcony. Everything was completely turned around and we received the order and enjoyed Breakfast on the Balcony in style. The food was prepared as ordered and delivered in respectful time. My hat is off to the chef on duty during Mother's Day Morning. They have renewed my faith in this property. Thanks for the wonderful weekend

Room Tip: Overlooking Mallory Square is the best and also gives you excellent water view.
