This is a cute little place with a pretty pool area. The rooms are clean, but a little on the old side. The bathroom in the studio rooms are so tiny I had to do my hair in the kitchen area. Also, the little patio out back is kind of useless. If you like any privacy at all, this isn't the place to stay. There is no room around the pool and people don't even move their chairs to let you walk by. The rooms are all around the pool, so if there are kids playing and screaming in the pool you can hear it in your room. The location is nice because it's not a real busy street and you can easily walk to Duval Street, it's only about a mile to the end of Duval. We stayed there thinking we could walk to the beach, but South Beach is a tiny beach surrounded by concrete walls that make you feel like you're in the sewer. There are a couple of decent beaches, but not within walking distance.

If there are any problems with children being around the pool at night and keeping people awake, we would like to hear about it immediately. We are a family friendly establishment, but also want to make sure that everyone is comfortable and happy while they are in town. Our bathrooms are small, I always let people know that when they ask. I have no idea why 1950's bathrooms were as tiny as they are, but it really is the case.

Key West isn't really known for it's beaches because the coral reef breaks most of the waves about a mile out which doesn't bring in the sand and the shells you often find along the Gulf Coast. I do enjoy a beach called Fort Zachary Taylor which is about a mile away. It is a state park that is very clean and well maintained. It even has parking, a concession stand, picnic tables, shade trees, restrooms, fresh water rinse and even a Fort to tour.
