“Great surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Stayed for three nights two weeks when we visited fantasy fest. This was our
first visit but will not be our last. Hotel was great. Rooms were very clean,
beds were sooo comfortable and rooms were very spacious. I paid a little extra to
get the oceanview room but wished i had gotten the poolview rooms. the oceanview rooms have a great view but you cannot see or are near the pool, they
are in a total different building. Definitely not worth the extra money since the
poolview rooms also have an excellent view. Check in was fast and the front
desk was always very helpful in helping you plan your day or for any requests.
the pool was awesome and its great to have the pool bar which also serves the
food. My only complaint for this hotel would be that the bar drinks were too expensive. $10 for a daiquiri, come on, but oh well your in the keys. You can
drink at any other bar for much cheaper. There are lots of iguanas on the property,
that was pretty neat. also the grounds are kept pretty nice. I didnt like there is
no shuttle that take you into downtown but you can catch the city bus right there
in the parking lot beside the lobby for $2 per person each way, so its no big deal. We took the bus into town many times. Also cab will run you $18 for 4 people so
not too bad either. Breakfast was very good, lots of good food and the ladies
attending the breakfast bar were very nice and attentative. I would definitely
recommend this place to my friends and will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a poolview room over an oceanview.

Our recent stay at the Best Western Ambassador was very nice and a great way to end our one week trip down the keys. The property is right across the street from the ocean, so great views and away from all the crowds in downtown. It's also on the trolley stop, so a great way to get out and see the sights and leave your car behind. The iguanas that hang out at the pool area were a hit with all the guests. The staff in the breakfast area were very polite and accomodating, keeping tables cleared for the morning rush. Definitely recommend this location when in Key West.

Fun times! Hotel is is conviniently located walking distance from the hotel. Literally about a quarter mile. Best to fly in and scoot around the Key. Benihana is near by and the staff there is amazing!

I stayed here in September of 2013 with my Wife and 4 year old daughter. My overall impression was good. The people were friendly and the rooms were clean. The pool area was very nice. They also have a very adequate breakfast that includes waffles, cereal and sausage biscuits. If I had to list a negative it would be the proximity to the airport, but we were aware of it when we made reservations. I would return.
