“Great Hotel for the price but a bit misleading...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I got this hotel for $144 a night which was considerably lower than most hotels in the area unless you get a bed and breakfast....the rooms were very nice and spacious...i was stunned at how large the bathroom was (hadincapped room maybe?) and i LOVED the bathroom vanity. GORGEOUS. The colors were very pleasant and they give you a crazy amount of tv channels to watch too@ The pool area is absolutely gorgeous and I even saw an iguana and lizard and some crazy looking bird there! However, I will say that on the hotel website they show pictures of a beach and I can assure you this is NOT on a beach! The beach is a good mile down the road even tho the lady at the counter told us it was 1/4 of a mile when we asked....the breakfast was good, although it was lacking scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage and bacon like most hot breakfasts have. They did have some great bob evans egg mcmuffin thingys tho :) Everyone here was very pleasant to deal with and the laundry is a plus. Overall, a good experience and I have no real complaints here. Nice hotel considering how old ugly and dingy key west looks. One more thing...it is next to the airport so you can certainly hear planes but it didnt keep me up at all...in fact i slept better at this hotel than any hotel ive ever slept at in my life!~

My family stayed here for one night. We were supposed to have a pool view room, but there was a huge tree right in front of our balcony blocking our entire view, kinda disappointing. The pool was beautiful, breakfast was much more than a usual continental breakfast, even had Bob Evans breakfast sandwiches. Staff was friendly and helpful. You can get right on the trolley here. And a plus for the kids was all the lizards in the back on the grass!!! A big con I have for this hotel, and why I only gave location a 3, is that it is located right next to the airport and the planes literally take off right over the hotel. Being on the 2nd floor it was extremely loud. Other than that, this was a great place and I would definitely recommend to friends!

I have stayed here many times since 1995. Too many little kids, nice rooms, beautiful pool, convenient trolley, good breakfast/morning snack. this time we needed to use the coin washer/dryer and that was great to be able to go to pool and do wash at same time. thankyou

We absolutely loved this hotel. It is directly across the street from the ocean, has a spacious clean pool with huge Tiki bar, our room's screened in balcony had a panoramic view of the pool and ocean beyond. Its close to the airport and two flights take off early, some mornings I heard them and some I didn't. Flights stop going over by 9 pm. Sooooo worth the trade off for the nice rooms, continental breakfast, beautifully kept grounds. Ask for a 2nd floor room for better views and ask for the building overlooking the pool and ocean. Some rooms are in other buildings and have to walk over for the pool, ours was right above the pool and tiki bar. Nice sand beaches start about a mile south of the hotel, you don't swim in the ocean right at this location, but the beaches are easy to get to. The hotel is also next to a very cool museum - Fort Martello. We used a rental car to go to Mallory Square, Duvall St., etc. - very easy. Will stay here again!

Room Tip: Request upper level in building with the pool.

We stayed in the hotel on the date of our 5th anniversary, the front office personnel was really great, they even sent us a bottle of champagne... the location of the hotel is good, close to the beach. The room was cozy, spacious and clean.

Overall a good experience and a warm recommendation

Ive stayed over the past 20 yrs several times.Its a decent place for the money,a few small mites or bugs on the window sill,Nice pool and good location away from duval party people.Main gripe was the air conditioner ran non-stop and never got the room cool,and it wasn't even sunny out?

Room Tip: Make sure you do a walk thru and check for bugs and air conditioner
