This hotel is pricey, but no more than any others nearby. Trust me, I spent a good three months waiting for a deal to open up among any of the hotels in the area. Key West is expensive, especially during the holiday season, and I can tell you that this Best Western property offers the best bang for the buck in this area. No contest!
We (family of four with two young kids) stayed here during the Christmas week and had an excellent time. The rooms are BIG - we got a room with two beds and a balcony (which I think all rooms have). We did not have an ocean view, which was a bit more expensive, but all we had to do was step outside to see the ocean. The property is located right off the highway along the ocean with easy access to a trail along the beach. Also it is just a short ten minute drive from the busier parts of Key West, including the ferry terminal to get on the boat to the gorgeous Dry Tortuga Island.
The room was clean, well-lit and airy. We had a room on the second floor, which we had to access by stairs (did not spot an elevator so this was a slight inconvenience). The check-in process was swift, we were assisted by a cheerful lady from Jamaica! The room had a large TV - our remote control did not work but probably just needed batteries!
The bathrooms were clean, average sized - nothing special here but we did not come to Key West to hang out in the bathroom anyway. What I liked was that the sinks were outside the bathroom so it served the family well.
Nice pool, good breakfast (think "Holiday Inn Express") and the property was pretty and peaceful.
Overall this is a great place for the family. Yes it is expensive, but I'm sure you expect that out here. I highly recommend staying here!
