“Deceptively Great”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

You know when I first booked this place I read the reviews on here and on other sites etc. and thought ok probably not spectacular but it'll be a decent enough and clean enough place to stay for one night. BOY was in for a surpise! From the outside the building might not look like much (not lousy or run down by any means but not exactly standing out aesthetically let's just say) but when you open the door to your room for the first time WOW! The inside part is quite obviously where they shine at this place. It's like a nice townhouse unit on the inside, VERY clean and nicely laid out upstairs and downstairs to where you would say to yourself yeah these people care about what they're doing. The front desk staff was plenty friendly and helpful and btw as a side note if you're looking for a GREAT place to have dinner and enjoy some live music head down the street 5 minutes to The Bayside Grille this place really turned out to be a good choice..........great food, SUPER friendly staff, excellent live music, and the view right on the water was a major plus (see separate review I posted on here same time as this one). As for Key West Inn I absolutely would stay here again:)

Room Tip: The room they gave me was a 2nd floor unit facing the street and the layout on the inside was like a...

We booked a last second stay at the Key West Inn for Fall Break for the night. It is conveniently located in an area that you can take snorkel trips, rent a jet ski, fishing trips or scuba dive - which in essence - is all there is to do in Key Largo.

The hotel is old and could be a nice location - but that would require someone putting money into the property - which would likely be a BIG number.
There is a small pool and decking area where you can hang out and have something to drink - and down below near the canal - there is a grill with tables where you could hang out (all of which we didn't use).

I didn't get my bill - so I don't know about whether I was "dinged" for a resort fee or not - but for the price of staying there for a night and 1/2 day - I was fine with the rate - especially compared to the Marriot, Courtyard, Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn.

The rooms are old - but you have a frige, microwave, and stove - so if you want to cook you can. There is a lower sitting area with a pull out sofa and a queen bed upstairs (careful - if you have knee problems the stairs to the upstairs are very steep and small footings).

The room is good for families - would NOT recommend for couples unless you're looking to stay for an extended period or need a low rate. The rooms cool off very well - but they just are simply there for convenience - not the modern amenities.

The televisions are from the 90's and you get cable channels. That's pretty much it other than coffee in the morning at the lobby area.

RECOMMEND - IF YOU WANT A GREAT BREAKFAST - DON'T STOP at the fast food or Waffle House restaurant which is nearby - stop by Starbucks and get your "good coffee" then head over to Doc's Diner - next to the Wendy's - for breakfast - BEST BREAKFAST PERIOD!!! Enough food that you'll take it home for the next day - well worth the stop.

We spontaneously took a trip to Key Largo FL over the Labor Day weekend, we did not book a hotel in advance, wenn we arrived at Key Largo, most Hotels were already booked. I saw the sign of the Key West Inn and gave it a try. The receptionist was very friendly and courteous. The Key West Inn had availability for a reasonable price, I even received an AAA Discount.
We were pleasantly surprised when entered the room or rooms, it was big, 2 Stories , 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen, a private balcony with a beautiful canal view. I will definately stay at this Hotel again when we decide to visit Key Largo again.

We stayed for one night in this motel, and we didn't expect our room to be so large.
We had 2 stories, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, and a balcony, for the price of a classic motel room.
Other than that, it's a pretty classic place for the price.

The hotel rooms are large. Pull-out couch on the first floor with a kitchen and full bathroom (shower stall), and a screened-in balcony. Second Floor - Large bedroom with a king-sized bed and a full bathroom (with bath). Kitchen - some pots, pans, utensils, stove/oven, full-size refrigerator, coffee pot. But, you may need additional cookware. The hotel and room are clean, but old. The hotel pool is small.

Hotel is convenient to fishing and dive boats. Walking distance to a county park with a playground, and pool (waterslides, diving boards).

We already booked before checking with TripAdvisor so we were expecting the worst.

And it was not the worst, it was huge! It got a living room and a full kitchen with a nice balcony. And upstairs you got the master bedroom. There are 2 bathrooms that was nice also.
Also the car can you park under the apartment, in the shade.

Now the comments:
The kitchen utensils were not complete. We couldn't open a can because there was no can opener.
There were ants everywhere in the kitchen not so nice.
Outside was live music, we didn't mind we loved it but if you want to sleep early don't stay here.
Also in the early morning you hear a lot of noise from jetski's and motorboats.

Overall it is good for a roadtrip :)

Thank you for reviewing the Key West Inn. Im happy that you enjoyed your stay and was pleasantly surprised at the size of our rooms. Many guest ask to be on the side that the music plays in order to sit on the balcony and listen with a nice cold beverage, others ask to be on the quiet side which we do our best to accomodate. We hope to see you on your next visit.
