First off I love Key West! I have been there twice... the first time I stayed at the Ocean Breeze Inn (which was adorable, but staff were so-so on the friendly scale) and then most recently I stayed at the Spanish Gardens Motel.
It is in a perfect little location (well to me anyways).... the walk to the end of Duval Street and to Mallory Square can be a little far for some people (realistically it only takes about 15-20 minutes-20 max), but for us we didnt mind since we like to stay active. It is right near the Southernmost point, and by a beach. At night it's away from all the noise and chaos so you can still get some rest (if you sleep that is! LOL).
What I loved about this place was when i originally booked it in january the guy I spoke with was super friendly on the phone. The day we arrived it was the same! The guy at the front desk noticed there were 3 of us girls so right away WITHOUT ASKING he gave us an extra hair dryer and a bunch of extra towels.
The day we checked out we were going sky diving and didnt want to bring all of our luggage with us so they kept it behind the front desk for us until we got back.
The room itself is cute, for three girls getting ready to go out it was convenient due to the bathroom and then an extra countertop with mirror outside of the bathroom.
The only two little cons I have (which are not deal breakers) are the pool (it's by the street so there is no privacy--but to be honest who goes to Key West to lounge by a pool...) and the bathroom is quite small.. the sink area and shower was fine but the toilet is so close to the wall that it makes it hard for tall people in there (I'm 6 feet tall so that was a bit awkward)..
again not a deal breaker..
I would recommend this place to anyone. It's a perfect budget motel and the service was exceptional!!!!
