“Wonderful Stay on Spring Break!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

My husband, daughter and a friend of hers stayed for spring break starting 3/8-13th. We first want to thank Martha who checked us in and made excellent room accommodations for us. The staff here goes above what I have experienced at the other hotels we have stayed. I will admit we have only been to Casa Marina and the Westin and they don't compare. This is our second stay and it was as nice .. no better than our first!!! This was our daughters first stay and she is 22 and was on her Senior year of spring break. This is a safe hotel for them to go out at night and get back to. We did not worry about her being out (yes even at 22 I keep tabs on my kids). The concierge was great in arranging jet ski trip and a ride on the White Knuckle boat ride. They loved them both. I recommend staying in the building with the pool/ocean view you wont regret it. But all the rooms I am sure are just as nice. We ate twice at night right on our balcony..why go anywhere else with the view you can get while having dinner. We really appreciate the staff at Ocean Key they are always great to work with.

Room Tip: get ocean front we were in 514

Ocean Key Resort is a great resort.
The location is ideal, it has the best views on the island.
The service was great.
The room service was delicious.
The room was amazing.
The pool was very nice as well.
The bartenders at the pool side bar will make sure you never go thirsty, and they just charge it
to your room, so there's no need to pack around money.
The balcony was amazing, try to get as high and close to the pier as you can for a room choice.
The only problem I had with the room was the lack of privacy in the bathroom.

The room was beautiful and had the Key West feel. Our balcony overlooked the pier and was very relaxing at night listening to the ocean. The balconies at this hotel are not in a straight line. Meaning some balconies will show other balconies. What we didn't want was to be sitting on our balcony and seeing other guests on their balconies watching us. There would have been no privacy. So we requested a balcony that was out further than the rest so we had complete privacy. :) The pool was great and loved lounging during the day and ordering drinks. We really liked the room service. A man would come in and set everything up for you if you wanted to eat on the balcony. We liked the fact that we could step out on the street and was on Duvall street where all the action is.

If you want to realize the trip of your lifetime, check into the Ocean Key Resort. We are a retired couple and we waited 43 years to visit Key West and decided to do it right. From the moment we pulled up in a taxi, until we left four days later, we were in paradise. The accommodations are absolutely gorgeous and the staff is excellent. We were on the fifth floor overlooking the ocean, and sunset pier. Loved, loved, loved our breakfast room service on the balcony :) We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and pool lounge. The bartender/manager of the pool area was friendly and very efficient. We watched as she did her job and interacted with the guests, and we were very impressed. In addition, we met the manager, Hugo, and he was friendly and helpful, as well. We may have waited 43 years to go the first time, but we are already planning to go again !

Room Tip: 512 was great ;)

Get all the benefits of a great hotel but retain the ambiance of the islands. This is no cookie cutter hotel everything from the staff, to food, to rooms, to location is above excellent. My son got married there in 2011 and it was the best wedding I have ever attended in my life.
You can't find better rooms, pool, or dining in downtown Key West! Be sure to eat breakfast at the Hot Tin Roof - the view alone is worth it but the food and service are outstanding. The staff does everything possible to make you feel at home! GOOO!
