“Secret Hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We always spend time at the BW Key Ambassador, when we visit Key West. It's a great spot, on the quiet side of the island, with reasonable rates, a beautiful pool & an ample continental breakfast. The rooms are clean & cozy, and the staff here is most accommodating. The Cheeky Hut by the pool is just the right spot to get out of the sun & grab a bite & a tropical drink, when/if you need to. They have a trolley and bus stop right outside the front door, so you can get anywhere you want on the island. Great for families or singles/couples.

Room Tip: Rooms 230 is on a corner of the 2nd floor & overlooks the pool, with an ocean view. It's nic...

We got the ocean view w/balcony and it was very good. A little noisy from traffic on Blvd. below. Overall the place was clean and service was excellent. Would recommend staying here while visiting Key West.

We spent one night in Key West. This hotel was a very nice value for the money. Nice clean room just like the pictures online. From the outside it doesn't look like much but the inside is nice and the pool area was also very nice. I'd stay again if I go back to Key West.

Thanks Heather! We're glad you enjoyed your night in Key West with us. The best compliment we can hear is when our guests tell us they will stay again if their travels bring them back to the island, and we're glad we can count you among them!

The staff here were wonderfully helpful! The hotel is right by the water, but the beach is about 5-8 minute walk away. The hotel is a little far from the main drag of Duval street, but if you rent a car or scooter, it's only 15 minutes away. If you are planning on only using a bike, you may want to consider going somewhere closer. The internet was a bit choppy at times, but everything else was great. The cleaning staff do an excellent and very thorough job! All staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. The airport is very close to the hotel, so if hearing planes take off and fly over you will bother you, don't stay here. It really didn't bother me much at all. I feel that you can ignore the sound easily enough after getting used to it. I would recommend this place to anyone, if the above concerns wouldn't bother you!

The room was huge and had an amazing ocean view. The bed was comfortable. The a/c worked. The room had a patio with chairs outside. The breakfast buffet was good and had a lot of choices for a continental breakfast. The bathroom was the only thing I thought needed some work. It looked like some tiles had been replaced in the shower and they didn't match, and there was some dark mildew around the tiles. Other than that, the hotel was great. Huge pool, pool bar, and friendly staff.

Room is well set up for a stay with refrigerator, microwave and extra shelves. Pool was great. My only wish is that the pool would be open longer. Although next to airport, noise was not an issue. I would stay here again with my family. Loved that shuttle stopped at hotel.

As it states above, it was our first visit to this area. What a great place to stay. Room had great sea views, excellent pool area. Local bus stop right outside and if you miss the bus taxi's generally $4.50 per person down to or from Mallory Square. Comfortable large room with good service from all staff. Excellent breakfast just that the room to eat in is too small for size of hotel.

Be aware it is near the local airport but not too noisy.

Room Tip: At front over looking the ocean
