After looking forward to an anniversary trip to Key West, the Equator Resort was underwhelming. The entire staff at this resort needs to take customer service training, unless the owner really doesn't care. From check-in until we checked out, the entire staff was very disengaged with the guests. Staff would just walk by and ignore guests, never asking if we... More

We stayed at the Equator for six days in early September. The hotel is kept very clean and it was obvious that they keep on top of maintaining the place. Facilities are really good - the two pools are both small but this is the old town of Key West, so that's to be expected. Breakfast is included and is... More

We have been staying at the Equator for 13 years. There have been ups and downs. This place is totally up right now. We just had a really great stay. Recent improvements include a waterfall in one pool, a new bar setup, breakfast and happy hour improvements, and the current staff is great. Breakfast now features Starbucks coffee and fantastic...

This resort had a good vibe about it and nice rooms. Bar with happy hour very nice and staff were very friendly and outgoing. Towels poolside was a bonus - you don't have to keep exchanging them for new ones like other resorts. Pool areas were nice with differing temps in pool and hot tubs. Great location - Duval St...

When these issues were brought up to the front desk, we were moved to another nicer room pool side. We really enjoyed the happy hour social time. free cocktails and snacks. A nice... More

I went to the Equator for a weekend birthday celebration and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and available to assist with any questions we had. The building and rooms were very clean and well kept. Our guest room had a great balcony that overlooked the pool. The Equator has two pools and two hot tubs. The... More

Great spot. Very, very clean resort property. The staff was superb, great with local recommendations and checking on our satisfaction. If I were to offer one suggestion, coffee in the room would be an excellent addition. There is a terrific representation of lite breakfast treats in the lobby (which we used).

Very clean, good staff, nice rooms, 2 pools, 2 hot tubs. Nice continental breakfast with bagels, muffins, cereal, good coffee too. Totally enjoyed my stay. Only one slight issue, the Wifi was not that great. But was no big deal. Free cocktail hour everyday at 5pm poolside.
