“Good Motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2006

Can't say anything bad about this motel. Room was large, and the motel is located away from all the noise of Duvall but still close enough to walk if you would like. The sevrice from the hotel staff was wonderful. We arrived in KW at noon and they allowed us to check in early with no problems or advance notice. The pool was GREAT!!! Looik foward to staying here again.

Stayed there one night in May 2006. Was the second time we took this hotel. Price was 125 USD plus tax booked via Best Western. Fair price for Key West and for what you get at the hotel. Rooms are huge. They only have two queen beds in each room. They also have a second sink in the room. Pool is huge and lovely. It is indeed very clean. Location is also good. Around 15 minutes to Duval Street if you walk not too slow. Southernmost Point is even closer. You get a continental breakfast for free and it is ok - nothing special. Right now, they have constructions going on. Therefore, the lobby is in a downstairs room and the breakfast is next to this room in a seperate room. You can pick up what you want to eat and go to your room or at the pool to eat there. Please note that we did not hear a single noise from the constructions. At the hotel, you can rent bikes what we did. 10 USD per bike. All in all, a good stay and I would come again...

Location was good if you are a walker. We walked up and down Duval twice a day, generally totalling about 5 miles of walking a day. Nice and quiet. The continental breakfast was substandard compared to others I have had. There were no waffle makers, and no hard boiled eggs. It was all mini, mini, mini donuts, bagels, muffins, carb central. No liquid creamer for the coffee. Coffee from the machine was pretty bad so I ended up making coffee in the room (came out much better) and keeping half and half in the fridge, which was nice to have.

The hours of the continental breakfast (6-9 AM) were clearly designed to save them money, as most that I have seen end at 10 or 10:30 AM.

The pool was very clean, but they could have used a few more tables with shade available. The hot tub was not too hot, which I happened to like. The room was very very large and the presence of an extra sink was really good.

The only complaint was the shower. Pressure was very low and the shower kept alternating between cold-ish and hot, no matter what time of day. This made for an unsatisfying shower. The air conditioner was a bit loud and could have used an update to a digital model in order to maintain a more consistent temperature.

What a find!
I used Trip Advisor to book this hotel, and would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a decent hotel, at a great price, in a fabulous location - just don't expect a room on par with the Ritz.
We came to Key West for a wedding, and I attempted to book a room in several B&Bs that had been recommended by friends. Unfortunately, ALL recommended places have a minimum age of 18 yrs for guests, and I have a 4 year old. The Best Western ended up having the perfect set-up for us. Walking distance to most attractions and many restaurants, free parking and a pool that we hit 3-4 times a day. PLUS, WiFi internet access! I'm sending this from my room as we decompress from a LONG day (wedding, several hours in the pool and shopping).
If you are heading to Key West, and you are looking for a laid back spot with super friendly staff... look no further!

We stayed here for three nights total. The rooms are very large and clean. The hotel staff were accomodating and the pool was clean and well maintained. The beach is two blocks away and Duval street is one block south. It takes about 10-15 mminutes to get to the heart of downtown Key West by foot, but there are stores and entertaining people to watch along the way. Hotel parking is available and free, so we just left our car and walked all over. Continental breakfast consists of a coffee and juice machines and donuts and bagels. No sitting area. Sit by the pool or take to your room. The only problem we had was a clogged tub drain, which was fixed upon our request, and a shower that went from cold to hot continously.

We stayed here over Easter Week 2006, our room was on the second floor. The hotel was clean and well kept and our family enjoyed the pool. We arrived before check-in and Rita at the front desk provided a place to change, so that we could swim, until our room was ready. (very nice) The breakfast area is small, but everyone took their turn and it worked out great.

This hotel is located on the Atlantic side of Key West. Close to the Southern Most Point.
A block North from Duval. A Trolley stop is just around the corner if you would like a tour.Two great breakfast cafes close by, and great Cuban food across the street at Dennis Pharmacy.

We have been several times and found this a great place to stay for a family vacation.
