“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The pool was also clean and spacious. Depending on what end of Duval you want to stay would depend on whether this is a good location for you. It is only one block off Duval and only a few blocks from the Southernmost Spot and Hemingway Museum. If you are looking for a good hotel and a good value, this is the place. The breakfast is average and the only thing that didn't rate a 5 with us.

The staff is very friendly and helpful we will definitely come back, nice place.

Staff were really helpful and friendly asking what floor we would prefer to stay on and giving us a map of the area. We also managed to park our car directly outside our room.

Room was spacious and extras such as fridge, microwave and hairdryer were great (we even had free microwavable popcorn provided).

Breakfast was great - takes it a step further than a European continental breakfast that I'm used to. I really enjoyed the waffles. The breakfast area was really small but we never had a problem as the hotel didn’t seem to be really busy.

Hotels location is great. Given some of the reviews I expected the walk to the central area to be further but the hotel is pretty much based at the far end of the main street so walking down it and seeing all the bars and restaurants was actually enjoyable.

Pool is nice, didn’t go in as was busy with large groups (drinking lots of alcohol) on the days we visited however we managed to get loungers for a couple of hours.

For the price we paid and given the accommodation cost in Key West we found this hotel to be great value for money.

This is an awesome place to stay - the hotel is small and well maintained and in an excellent location in the traditional section of Key West. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very quiet, even though my door had direct access to the pool area. The pictures on the website do not do this establishment justice - it is much nicer!
The pool was comfortably warm, again spotlessly clear and clean and a pleasure to enjoy after a long day of work.
I found the front desk staff most professional and accommodating to my needs.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if that is an issue, choose a room on the first floor.

Nice hotel, with a nice pool area. we had a suite over the reception which was spacious and clean. Reception was fine, and breakfast was OK, nothing special, but had what we needed. It rained for 2 days we were there, but as the hotel is close to Duval street it was good for dashing out when the rain stopped. Free parking with good spaces make this hotel a must when you need somewhere cheaper in Key West.

We don't usually get this much rain. There are plenty of things to do when it rains, but it is just so much better when the sun is shining. Thanks for posting!
