We did a 'fly by your pants type vacation" we walked in the office to see if they had anything for rent and they did. Which at first made me nervous since everything else was booked. But our 1 bedroom condo was great. It did have a pull out sofa bed for our daughter. Most of the units have everything you need pots, pans, stove, fridge, etc. The units are not beach front. They mostly face the pool which is in the center. The public beach access is @ the stoplight right out front of the place which makes it super easy to get to the beach. Its right next door to the beachside hotel. The location is great, not to close to the nightlife, and not too far from eating, dining, and activites. I would definately stay here again. It is a bit dated but, unless your looking for granite countertops, pillowtop beds, and fine china it works just fine! The pool and hot tub are great. My daughter spent a ton of time in the pool the water there is pretty rough for a 5yr old to be in. We did get a walking discount, our room for 4nights was about $480ish? About $105 per night.+taxes+fees. This is cheaper than the hotels here!!!! They DO NOT have "mom & pop" kinds of places to stay here! Remember that incase you think you can just find somewhere when you get here. You can't! We spent 2 nights in Foley @ the key west inn (eww) but thats in another review! All of the right hand side units back up to beachside hotel, and lots of nights they have karaoke in the bar, so it its loud and could bother your sleep. So maybe get a front or back, side unit. Also it has covered parking No ground level units. If you drive a large suv, van, truck , etc. it will not fit under there! I didn't put my honda oddyssey under there. Its just to tight of a space but there is parking behind the pull in's which is fine. They also have free Wi-Fi, and 2 Washers, and 2 Dryers. THESE ARE NON SMOKING UNITS! So you have to go outside, the provide ashtrays because you can't throw cig butts on the ground. If we come back, i will check this place out 1st! The other's near by here that are reasonable are the cove, lani kai. they looked like a great place to stay, and we talked to people staying there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are across the road from the public access to the beach. Great location. Our buildings are on pilings so there are a few steps to climb. We offer a towel exchange on Wednesday and also have a coin op laundry room. We are not a high-rise or a huge complex, more of a quaint "old Florida" kind of place! Great place for families as we have full kitchens in case you want to save some money and eat in. Our pool is huge and in the middle of the complex with our hot tub. Bahama Bob's is across the street and we are within walking distance to The Hangout and other businesses. Paradise Isle received the RCI Hospitality award for 2014,2015,2016,2017. We are under new management as of 02/2014. ... more less
