NO parking available. Door opened onto street, broken windows, TINY room, door clunked into a dresser, no place to put clothes, bathroom door clunked into nightstand, bed was HORRIBLE, like straw! There is NO charm nothing quaint about this DUMP! And is was extremely expensive to boot. We canceled our second night there and got a refund! DON'T even think of staying at any of the Historic Inns of Key West. They misrepresent what they actually look like! A real vacation spoiler.....

In the game of polo there is an 'intermission' where they invite spectators to take part in the 'stomping of the divits' to fill in the holes on the playing field. That being said, if my husband and I were Polo players, we could have engaged in some 'divet stomping' right on the mattress at the Budget Key West hotel! It was the most horrible (sleepless) night we had during our vacation and to think we spent $160. to stay makes it even more horrible!

Let me say that we with a name like "Budget Key West", our expectations weren't high at all....but...we were expecting a decent mattress.... not one that squeaked with every move and had not one but three big sink holes in it and numerous small ones.

When my husband complained at the front desk upon checkout, he was told that it wasn't the first time they'd received that complaint.

If you're even thinking of renting a room for a night at this place.........think again! I think the homeless people we saw laying in the sand looked more comfortable than we were!

Absolutely WONDERFUL hotel in the Key West historical area! CLEAN rooms with kitchenettes, huge shower! No pool but we went there to go snorkeling so it wasen't a big deal. Nice walk to Duval St. Really got face to face with the REAL Key West! Nice veranda. Good price considering it was April. We took the ferry from Ft Myers and the hotel is a block from the ferry terminal. Just a delightful find!!

I was very disappointed...the exhaust fan...was out in the bathroom and either the drained was backed up or it was mold. The stench was so bad we could not even leave the bathroom door open and certainly could not stand the smell when taking a shower without gagging. We did bring this to the front desk attention and they said there had been problems in several rooms with this and to them it was no big deal. I will not be going back. It was a night mare. First place why would you rent a room knowing it wasn't up to pare???

From a previous review I read I understand there was a sister hotel across the street which afford food and a pool but, we were never told about it.

There were mildew on the cushions of the chairs outside our room and buckets of water which draw mosquito' s in the evening hours for the guest sitting outside. The buckets were never emptied or moved the whole time we were there.

Sure doesn't look like the pics on Orbitz or Hotels.com. Cleanliness was a serious issue. Smelled stale and smokey even though it is supposed to be a non-smoking hotel. Mold in the shower and on bathroom floor tiles. Carpet was very sticky-would not go bare foot for sure. Bedding and towels were clean. Staff's response was that this is Florida and mold is hard to combat. Location is quite far from Duval and main action. Has no water in the "wet bar"/ kitchen area. Would not recommend.
