It was the first time I stayed in a hostel and didn't know what to expect, so I went with an open mind. And it wasn't bad at all. The place was pretty clean, had an AC that worked well and the curtains on the side of your bed gave you pretty much all the privacy you needed. Espec

While this hotel isn't one on the best, it was one of the least expensive. The reason I gave this hotel a "Budget" price range is compared to the rest of the hotels in Key West it is pretty cheap. Don't go to this hotel if you are expecting a 4 or 5 star hotel, it is at best a 2

Had never been to Key West before and a friend and I reconnected after 9 years and chose to stay here. Nothing fancy, but room was clean and comfortable. Motel was just a short walk to the southernmost point for picture taking. A very nice Cuban grocery store is on the next bl

Is this hotel dog friendly?
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
Do NOT have your wedding guests stay here. It's cheap for a reason.

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

To be honest I don't know. We had alcohol with us and it was no problem. At least they didn't say anything ☺️lol

"Close to Southern Most Point and Duval Street."
"avoid this place"
"Get a room away from south street, which might be quieter"
"avoid room number 2, traffic is kinda loud"
"If you stay here do not take an outer room, too noisy."
