In short, you are wasting the money booking a reservation here. There are a number of other options around Key West that you would find outstanding for less on TripAdvison. The grounds are very nice, well appointed and well maintained. This hotel used to be a grand dame but now is an austere lobby. They got rid of their wonderful dining room and replaced it with beachside service. It is not even close to reaching that past level of quality. Overall the room are small, the walls where paper-thin and the shower was difficult to adjust. Outside access to rooms are tiled which are very slippery when wet several times a day.
Unlike hotels I normally visit during my travels they charged my credit card two months before arrival to hold the room. I guess they need the money. You are clearly paying for the beach and the view. Keeping in mind, there are public beaches readily accessible in the Key West and you can walk down the street on this island and find a view, there is no need to pay for it.
