Used Best Western discount special to make reservations for family vacation. Yes it is away from downtown which means you either drive, bicycle or moped to downtown with the parking issues. Yes it is next to the airport, but you really do not notice the planes taking off after a while. Yes it is across the street from the seawall, so if you are a walker, jogger or cyclist it is perfect spot for morning, noon for mad dogs, or night exercise. If you want photos of the sunrise on the Atlantic side, this is the perfect spot from the seawall. Hotel is just over a mile from one of the few sand beaches in Key West, Smathers Beach.. The hotel is very large, we stayed in the southern building, which is where the breakfast room is. The Northern complex is where the pool area and bar is. The pool is a great place, Lots of shade, large area, and several water falls to add interest for the kids. The staff were very friendly at check-in,and on the third night when the room keys had to be reprogrammed. The room is H U G E. Largest I have experienced. Screened in balcony provides a view of the resort area next door, a Hyatt property no less, and the Iguana lizards running around in the trees and the grounds, where else but Key West. Rooms have been very nicely and recently remodeled, well done. New carpets, furniture, very nice. Beds are super comfy. They even have the special touch of providing paper plates and utensils on the microwave for your use. Two complementary bottles of water as well. Vanity sink is separate from bed area with P L E N T Y of space for hanging clothes, coolers, and possibly an extra bed if needed, it is HUGE. Vanity mirror in addition to the wall mirror is welcome touch for the ladies getting ready for a night on the town. Shower and toilet are in separate room which is ALWAYS helpful when you are the male in a room with three females. I especially appreciate the side table and side chair with ottoman along with the desk and office chair. Classy hotel on a budget price. Better room appointments than I have had in much more expensive Sheraton or Hyatts. They are two story units with only stair access so if you have special needs, take that in consideration. Plenty of parking here, so take advantage, may be the only time you will not have a problem parking in Key West. Breakfast area a little crowded, but it has a covered patio which is very handy. Nice and helpful staff. Common breakfast fare waffles, breads, no "hot" items like meats or eggs, but they do have sausage eggs and biscuits to microwave in the fridge. Seems to be the preferred hotel for military and commercial employees. I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel for families. Away from the downtown madness. I would stay here EVERY TIME I return to Key West. Easy access from Roosevelt and easy access to downtown. The ONLY complaint is the shower did not drain well. The only blemish in an otherwise paradise............
