Had a hard time finding a quality motel in Key West for under $200. Found this gem for $197 with our Senior/AAA/AARP discount. Right across the road from the beach, although you could not easily access it because of the rocks. Clean two queen bed room on the second floor. Great sheets and duvets - you just want to snuggle in and wrap the duvet around you. Don't know how old the motel is, but the grout in the bathroom needed to be redone and the wood around the bathroom door needed repairing. We had a view of the pool and the tiki bar. We enjoyed sitting on the screened in lanai after dinner in Key West. Most motels now days don't have chairs outside for you to enjoy the evening. Great addition! Tiki bar closes at 7PM so it is not noisy. Nice large pool with lush tropical trees surrounding it.
The breakfast was very good with the usual assortment of items. Just a short walk from our building to the breakfast building.
Note: There is no elevator. We selected the second floor because another guest on the first floor said you could hear the people above you walking around.
All the personnel are helpful.
There are four ways to get into Key West - drive yourself, the trolley ($26) because you are actually on the tour, city bus ($1.50 or $.50 for seniors) or a taxi ($20). Be aware that the bus only runs every 1.5 hours so you have to carefully plan your time or you will wait another 1.5 hours. We took the taxi in and the bus back. The office will gladly call the taxi for you.
Definitely would stay at this Best West again! Absolutely no reason to pay $400 to stay in town when you can be out near the beach.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of the bathroom. Otherwise, it was top notch.
