Best Western Hibiscus Motel
Ranked #16 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

. Staff very friendly, price reasonable compared to other hotels and rooms were large and comfortable.. Continental breakfast had good selection but the area could have used more chairs. Best part was great location - able to walk to trolley stop, scooters, restaurants, and Duvall Street for shopping and sightseeing. Also, I have a large SUV and parking was no problem. Would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: First floor rooms easier because no elevator to 2nd floor

I looked at many reviews on this property before booking and I could not have been happier with my decision. It was a great location, just a block over from Duval Street in the older part of Key West. We had a 1st floor room facing the pool and did not hear any noise either during the day or night. The room itself was very large and appeared currently updated. There was a wood floor, a full bathroom and a separate vanity outside the bathroom and both were equipped with an over abundance of towels, there was also a small fridge and a microwave, a room safe in the large closet and a flat screen tv. There was a small area with 2 chairs/table/lamp and a desk w/chair as well in the room and the A/C worked exceptionally well.. There was ample parking in 3 different areas around the motel and a nice continental breakfast in the mornings. If your looking for a fairly priced motel in a great location in Key West I would recommend this one; Im sure to visit this place again.

Room Tip: 1st floors have wood floors. 2nd floors you must walk up a flight of stairs (no elevator).

We stayed at this hotel during our recent trip to Key West. The price was very reasonable based on other surrounding hotels, rooms were very clean, roomy, and comfortable (the pictures on the website are very accurate). The location is an easy walk to waterfront sites and Duvall restaurants/bars. The staff we're friendly and helpful. We definitely would stay again!

A bit of a hike to the Duval Street bars, but for the price, it was fantastic. Located just about a block from the Southernmost Point and South Beach. Our room was recently remodeled and was very clean and modern.

I highly recommend this moderately-priced hotel. Although the exterior is as non-descript as any Best Western, it's otherwise in a class by itself. Front desk mgr Lein greeted us with great recommendations for our stay, replete with some Key West history. The room was an incredibly pleasant surprise -- spacious and recently renovated in a style that was up-to-date, but still would have made Hemingway or Tennessee Williams feel at home. I especially appreciated the extra sink outside the bathroom. The location is perfect -- on a quiet street three blocks from a public beach and a short walk from the action on Duval St. This hotel set the tone for a very pleasant visit to Key West. I would definitely stay again. PS The Cuban grill and shop a block away toward South Beach is worth a stop.

The room was cool as promised and provided a good home base. Very close to Duval Street, Banana Cafe and Tropical Rentals ( don't rent a scooter from anyone else). Having a pool at the hotel for a quick dip was nice as well. A little pricey though.

Room Tip: If you go to bed early you may not want a poolside room.
