“Great value, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

My husband and I were looking for an affordable room in a quiet location and this Best Western fit the bill. Room was very nice and clean (though we did notice a dank odor in the room most of the time, which I suspect was from moisture settling into fabric areas...not sure if this is fixable, but it was strong and pervasive). We had asked for a room in a quiet location and were given a ground floor room away from the pool area...good choice! We simply loved the pool, which was comfortably heated and generally relaxed (though a few "rowdies" showed up on some nights that spoiled the peace)...and I just adored the palm trees and well-kept landscaping surrounding the pool. One thing that could be improved upon that others have noted is the smoking situation...the hotel had numerous smokers in the pool area (an ashtray on every table). Overall, though, it was a good experience and we would probably stay there again.

Love staying at this hotel in Key West during Fantasy Fest. It is away from all of the business on Duvall and just a short walk from that. I have stayed here for 6 years during Fantasy Fest and have never been disappointed. The breakfast is great each morning as well. Don't have to find a restaurant to eat breakfast. I would recommend this hotel if you are staying in Key West any time of year! Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

We just recently stayed for 3 nights at the Best Western Hibiscus and our stay was pleasant.We have always stayed on Roosevelt Blvd but since we heard it is messed up with traffic and road construction we thought we would try another place and were not sorry we did.The rooms are very large, clean and quiet.We walked several times to downtown and it wasn't bad for an old man. Breakfeast was also decent. The pool area and hot tub is very nice as well. Never had a problem parking and would definately stay here again.

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We have the best luck with Best Western hotels. Front desk staff was terrific. One of the night managers recommended Abbondanza restaurant our first night and we ate there 3 nights overall, wonderful. Also had maps and info about bike rentals for us. The rooms are very large. We were on 2nd floor overlooking the pool. Continental breakfast was average but all fresh. Nice pool. Our only negative about the hotel was the number of smokers while we were there (no smoking in pool area would have made hotel Excellent for us). So eating breakfast at an outside table (small area inside for food) or sitting by the pool meant usually being next to smokers. Hotel is about 7-8 blocks walking to the main part of Duval St. Avoid the pedicabs, huge ripoff. Bike rentals nearby and a small store down the block. Very convenient overall and very happy we chose this hotel.

Room Tip: Upstairs, pool view.

The rooms are large and comfortable. However some of the tile work in the bathroom needs replacing as it was chipped and cracked and the furniture in the room was a little worn and could use a good cleaning. The breakfast was also a little lacking not a lot to choice from but it is included with the room rate. Try to get a room with a view of the pool as that makes for some interesting people watching. The wifi also works very well so overall not bad.
