Location was really great. Off street parking, walkable to Higgs Beach, Southernmost Point, main part of Duval, ect.
Room was tiny- #25. Smelled a little mildewy/public-restroom-esque when we first got there, but seemed to improve by day two (maybe we got used to it)
Small mediocre bed, passable bathroom, not much room to put things. But you are in Key West and that is great!
Two pools, not great but good enough for a dip.
Front desk personnel were pleasant, though the cleaning crew is pretty bad. We were out all day and when we returned at 4- 4:30, our room hadn't been touched. They only have like 35 rooms? I walked past a room that they were servicing, where the one maid was working, while two others were just hanging out in the room listening to music. I ended up just grabbing some towels and skipping the cleaning service. By that point, we needed to shower and get ready for the night.
Price was one of the cheapest rates in an expensive town, but I would hesitate to recommend because the place is pretty rough around the edges. It will not do for persnickety types. If you are a flexible person who realizes that you aren't spending much time in the room, it's worth a shot. We had a blast in Key West and look forward to coming down again.
