“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Love coming to the Key Ambassador and have been for a long time. If you want to stay away from Duval, this is the place to stay. People are great, rooms are clean and the landscaping is wonderful!!! You'll get hooked once you stay!

This was our first time staying in Key West. Located by the airport on the outer edge of town away from the town traffic made it a great location. The room was HUGE and very clean. Very modern and what looked to be recently renovated. The beds were very comfortable and the A/C worked great. The continental breakfast was amazing soo much to choose from it took me a few minutes to decide what to have. And with a clean heated pool and hotel bar next to it this place is perfect. The only complaint is there could have been more parking. We were on the 2nd floor and had to park on other end of the building. It should be also be mentioned that this hotel is literally located smack dab at the end of the Key West airport runway and large planes taking off are very loud even with the door closed, however air traffic seems to stop between 10pm and 8am so that didn't prevent a great nights sleep. If I'm ever in Key West again I will definitely stay here.

We always spend time at the BW Key Ambassador, when we visit Key West. It's a great spot, on the quiet side of the island, with reasonable rates, a beautiful pool & an ample continental breakfast. The rooms are clean & cozy, and the staff here is most accommodating. The Cheeky Hut by the pool is just the right spot to get out of the sun & grab a bite & a tropical drink, when/if you need to. They have a trolley and bus stop right outside the front door, so you can get anywhere you want on the island. Great for families or singles/couples.

Room Tip: Rooms 230 is on a corner of the 2nd floor & overlooks the pool, with an ocean view. It's nic...

We got the ocean view w/balcony and it was very good. A little noisy from traffic on Blvd. below. Overall the place was clean and service was excellent. Would recommend staying here while visiting Key West.

We spent one night in Key West. This hotel was a very nice value for the money. Nice clean room just like the pictures online. From the outside it doesn't look like much but the inside is nice and the pool area was also very nice. I'd stay again if I go back to Key West.

The staff here were wonderfully helpful! The hotel is right by the water, but the beach is about 5-8 minute walk away. The hotel is a little far from the main drag of Duval street, but if you rent a car or scooter, it's only 15 minutes away. If you are planning on only using a bike, you may want to consider going somewhere closer. The internet was a bit choppy at times, but everything else was great. The cleaning staff do an excellent and very thorough job! All staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. The airport is very close to the hotel, so if hearing planes take off and fly over you will bother you, don't stay here. It really didn't bother me much at all. I feel that you can ignore the sound easily enough after getting used to it. I would recommend this place to anyone, if the above concerns wouldn't bother you!

The room was huge and had an amazing ocean view. The bed was comfortable. The a/c worked. The room had a patio with chairs outside. The breakfast buffet was good and had a lot of choices for a continental breakfast. The bathroom was the only thing I thought needed some work. It looked like some tiles had been replaced in the shower and they didn't match, and there was some dark mildew around the tiles. Other than that, the hotel was great. Huge pool, pool bar, and friendly staff.
