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.

The Equator has completed a renovation since I was last there and it's better than ever. Great new bar area where free drinks are served for happy hour. You've read all the other reviews so it's clear the place really is a fantastic Gay place to stay in Key West. But it's not cheap! Rooms in the upper 2 hundreds... More

This was our first time staying at the Equator. We normally stayed at Big Ruby's in the past, but since that resort is gone now, we wanted to find another gay resort. The property and the rooms are beautiful. The room was very clean and a nice size. The staff were outstanding. Special shout out to Billy, Anthony and Oscar... More

The management keeps this place spic and span. The room I had was well located and very quiet - something I appreciate when travelling. The inn is well located and it is easy to walk anyplace that you will most likely want to go.
