Sunset Harbor is the best in Key West. Because I believe this I purchased a week in a two bedroom townhouse with an ocean view. In addition to that week I try to visit KW several more times a year and I always try to get accomodations here.
I have stayed at SH many times in a variety of accommodations from two bedroom townhouse to studio. I have also stayed at many other B&B's and hotels in Key West and they were all good but, Sunset Harbor is the best. Sunset harbor has the best location on the island within walking distance to almost everything and it offers much more for your money.
Some reviewers seem to be unaware that this is a timeshare which rents vacant units, if you are lucky enough to get one. No, there is not anyone to carry your bags, there are luggage carts and ramps leading to the elevator. No, the studios do not have a view because they are the lock-off bedroom of a two bedroom unit, the one bedroom portion of that unit has a great balcony view and a kitchen, livingroom, dining area and bedroom for slightly more money. No, there is not a restaurant or bar because space is very limited in Old Town and you are within a five minute walk of dozens of excellent choices for both.
You could have all of those things if you stay on the other side of the island because space is not so limited there, but you would have to drive and park & pay every time you go out because you are not close to any of the best of Key West. You could stay in a hotel or B&B room which cost more and offers less. Compare the price of a one bedroom unit at Sunset Harbor (bedroom, kitchen, dining area, living room and balcony ) to a hotel room in nearby locations. Since Sunset Harbor is a Hyatt location you also have the amenities located at the nearby Hyatt hotel avaiiable to you including discounts at the restaurants.
Key West is the best with history, culture, arts, the ocean and gulf, water sports, funky bars and some of the best restaurants in the states.
Budget tip-try the city bus to get to places that are too far to walk. A week pass cost less than one taxi ride and you will see parts of the island that you might never see otherwise. There is a stop at the entrance to Publix which will save you even more money than shopping in Old Town. The bus returns in about 1 hour. I also use it to get to the far end of Duval (it runs on streets parallel to Duval not on it) and then leisurely shop, sightsee and eat my way back to Sunsrt Harbor. I only use taxis when I have luggage or it is late at night. You can track the bus location online before you head out to the bus stop.
