I will echo what you've read these past few reviews. It isn't fancy and it isn't a luxury hotel. What it is: a clean comfortable room, a property with a nice pool overlooking the marina, laundry facilities if you need them and a quiet place to rest your head at the end of a great day in Key West.

It's located on the Gulf side just off Roosevelt Boulevard so it is a little bit of a walk to Duval but not too far. It's easy walking distance to The Bight and Schooner Wharf, Harpoon Harry's, Turtle Kralls, Coffee Queen, etc.

Having traveled to Key West 2-3 times a year for the past ten years I can attest to the cost of lodging being on the high end here. I can also understand the "You get what you pay for" train of thought. So when I was quoted $79 a night I felt a little apprehensive which was, happily, unnecessary.

Without question I will be staying here during future trips. After all, wouldn't you rather save money on a clean comfortable room so you'll have extra cash for mojitos, margaritas, cold beer and fresh seafood? Uh-huh.....me too.

Room Tip: Only bar soap is provided....heads up. Why not walk to town, have a good time and grab a cab back to your room? Cabs are everywhere and they're not expensive.

Key West is notoriously expensive so we looked at a number of options. We found this in the back of a voucher hotel booklet advertising rooms for $69 + tax which for Key West is cheap!

It was ranked lowly on the Trip Advisor site even though recent reviews are good if you read them. The motel is exactly as described, it has around 15 or so rooms, most mini apartments. In our room (number 5), we had a microwave, fridge, small sink and some cooking utensils which fitted what we needed i.e. breakfast and maybe a sandwich for lunch then we ate out on the evening.

The room was spotless, very clean, room service comes every day, the fan / air con unit was very quiet and kept the room chilled nicely without the annoying noise. It has cable TV which showed premiership football :-), channel 40 was a fox sports channel in spanish but if you changed the language on the tv you got english commentary - a right result and meant I didn't have to find a pub to watch any games!

It's around a 15min walk to Duval Street where all the action is, and a $10 cab ride ($12 with tip). And because it's a little way out it's nice and quiet.

It has free parking which is good as most places in Key West tend to charge from what we saw. There is also a little pool which is very clean and there is a laundry facility to wash and dry for a $1 a piece. It also has BBQ facilities and boat dock spaces! They don't have safes in the rooms but we never had any problems and the area looks and was very safe.

All in all we were very happy where we stayed, it was cheap and very clean, try and get a voucher for walk in rates, they tend to be cheaper.

This isn't for everyone, if you are into 4 or 5 star luxury this place won't be for you. But for budget travellers who want a clean, safe, friendly place to rest your head then look no further than here.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be the same standard, but the boat houses did look bigger.

for 85 bucks total (I had a coupon from a rest area travel book, a great idea to save $$) we got a single room with a tv, fridge, sink, and bathroom. it was clean and fine, just small. it seems like an old apartment complex with a row of 6 apartments that were converted. it was quiet, the AC worked well, and we have no complaints. No extras, nothing fancy, just a simple place to sleep at night. Would stay again.

The front desk woman stephanie i think is her name was so nice and was able to help me even though i didn't arrive on time. The room was SPOTLESS! IT's not decorated fancy and your not going to find a ton of conditioners and shampoos and what not like other hotels, but i'd rather them skimp on that and have the lower rates. The housekeeping woman was super nice and helpful. I've stayed in HIGH DOLLAR NICEE hotels where my feet are dirty after walking on the floor and after a day of walking on the floor of this hotel the bottom of my feet had NOTHING. The kitchen area is a huge plus and i will be coming back here especially since i only live in islamorada.

We booked 1 night in Key West at the Harborside Motel on house boat #18. I recommend this house boat to anyone who would like to visit Key West. It was very clean & tidy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A++++
