Really, not enough nice things can be said about this gem. It's location on the 1000 block of Duval is really excellent, because it is only a 15 minute walk if you want the night time craziness, but afterward you can can retreat to this mellow, somewhat retro inn (check out their classic, purple neon motor lodge sign and their single story setup). It's only about 25 rooms, so the small but immaculately maintained pool was never over crowded. The small bar doubles as a complimentary breakfast area in the morning hours. We were given tickets for a free drink during happy hour each night of our stay. Breakfast is fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels and toast (the addition of peanut butter and hard-boiled eggs for some morning protein was welcome), juice and coffee, and assorted danish and breakfast pastries, cereal. While you still try breakfast out while in Key West, the decent variety of food along coupled with the comfortable sitting area around the pool makes this a very viable option. Rooms are very clean and modern, big televisions, comfy beds. Not too much storage room, so be prepared to live out of your suitcase a little bit, but nothing intolerable. Big shout out to Sean (Shawn?) working the front desk. Very friendly and helpful, providing menus, directions, recommendations and towels for late night swims. Thanks! Two blocks from the Hemingway House, and three from the Butterfly Conservatory, two of my favorite stops in Key West!
