    The rooms are small but tidy and comfortable. The motel is well located not far from Duval Street and all the amenity of Key West. I'd recommend it for a short stay. Parking is not an easy task if you arrive late in the afternoon.

    I would like to know, if i can reserve 6 rooms, one with a double bed? I realize this is almost half of the rooms you have. Also, if I do choose your motel will I receive any sort of discount? The wedding is October 26th 2018 and we would all be staying just the one night. Sincerely- Party of 12

    Nevermind, I see the rates are $150 a night. If this is the true price I will not need a discount. Look foreward to my call in March to reserve.

    HI. I understand there is a Deposit: USD $150.00 per stay. Is that refundable immediately and does it need to be paid in advance or at the time of stay? Thank you Sandy

    Dear Sandy, We take deposit $100 and we'll release it immediately after your check-out, but it takes around 2 days to be back on your card. We take deposit at check-in time. Best regards, Sofya
