Reviewed September 20, 2012

We loved Ambrosia! The Tree Top room was beautiful, private, quiet, and wonderful! We were so close to everything, awesome breakfast for free, nice pool to lay out at..
It is the only place I will stay again in Key West.

5 STARS!

Greetings Rich and Dyanne!

THANK YOU FOR THE 5 STAR RATING!! We are honored! Our treetop suite is very private featuring your very own entrance off of a tropical outdoor sitting area which is the treetops. This suite is very spacious and secluded, featuring a queen bed and a sitting room. I am sure you enjoyed that Ambrosia is in the heart of Old Town, close to all the action, but in a quiet location on Fleming Street. We do have an ‘awesome’ complimentary breakfast featuring assorted muffins, breads, fruits, yogurts, eggs, bacon, biscuits, just to name a few. Our breakfast is located in our outdoor gazebo overlooking our lap pool. Again, the staff and I thank you for the 5 STAR RATING and we are glad that you exclusively stay at Ambrosia when you visit Key West. P.S. Lexie wanted to say hello and she will see you on your next trip! Best Regards, Tim and The Ambrosia Family.

If you want a relaxing, stressless place to stay with a great friendly helpful staff this is the place to be in Key West. Within easy walking distance of everything on Duval street and the harbor. We love the Alligator suite with the lap pool right off the porch with all the lush tropical trees and plants around it making for a great place to relax and cool off after walking to lunch at one of the many bistros nearby on Duval. It beats the hustle and bustle of a big resort anyday in our book. You just can't go wrong when staying at Ambrosia Key West.

Dear Chuck and Brigitte!
WOW! Thank you for all your kind words! It was a pleasure to be your host during your visit. Our Alligator Suite is very popular! This suite features a private porch that overlooks one of our three pools, the lap pool. Many of our guests enjoy that Ambrosia is in the heart of Old Town, close to all the action, but in a quiet location on Fleming Street. We hope to see you on your next trip to Key West! Again, thank you for the great review! Best Regards, Tim and The Ambrosia Family.

This place / home away from home is WONDERFUL, the accommodations, the location, the staff, the amenities and the consideration that the ENTIRE TEAM gives to you while you are enjoying your stay in Key West... is UNMATCHED. Even the other guests were wonderful when I was there, I know that can be a coincidence - but my entire experience couldn't have been better!

*** So Sincerely.... THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY TRIP SO MEMORABLE, COMFORTABLE AND ENJOYABLE! Even my friend who was local was treated with such care and respect, thank you!!!

We look forward to our trips to Key west a couple times a year .. In the past, we have always stayed at top notch resorts but decided to stay at The Ambrosia - Bed & Breakfast.. We just decided to do something different this time.
Our two day stay here was a nightmare!! I would advise anyone who goes to Key West in low season, drive down and inspect places yourself. Don't rely on reviews and if you do read reviews, read ALL OF THEM,.
All of us have at least minimal expectations due to the fact we are PAYING for the services.
From the time we arrived, there was no parking...only street parking. We asked why we couldn't park on their facility where there was off street parking and we were told "they are saved for the people who check in late at night."They were never used.
Our entire two day stay consisted of numerous problems!
Roaches!!! Dirty filthy rug! No Central AC.....only a window unit and no air of any kind in the bathroom. The TV didn't work when we checked in and that was the only thing they DID fix the next day. The bed was so old, it dipped so bad in the middle, my husband hated it and due to my having a bad back I was forced to sleep on the floor. We called and asked for an air mattress or something that I could sleep on. They brought in an air mattress. We pumpled air into the thing all night long (it apparently had a leak). I finally just let it go flat and once again slept on the floor. By the way, when we called the desk to tell the girl about the roaches, we were told "Well, in Florida you have to expect bugs"!!! WHAT?? My husband noticed the wiring system in the place. It looked as though it was wired in knob and tube wiring and blew a circuit on the first and second day. The people in the adjacent room (connecting door) were so loud at night until almost midnight and of course there is no one in the office to call. They also serve a continental breakfast (typical of a Hampton Inn breakfast) OUTSIDE where it was a 100 degree heat index. It sits outside from 8:30 - 10:30
After talking to Mike, he offered to reimburse us. My husband told him we need some sort of credit. My husband has a very bad heart condition and we were leaving early the following morning. He then changed his offer by saying "which would you like reimbursment for....the bugs, the bed, the AC?" Once again..WHAT? In the end, he did NOTHING!!!! SOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!! By the way, they take total payment upon check-in!

Dear worst, Sorry you were so disappointed. It is our goal to provide a near perfect Key West experience for each and every guest. For any and all problems we have a 24 hour emergency number. We have a 10pm-10am noise curfew, which all of our guests are made aware of at check in. I have never stayed at a Hampton, but we are sure our breakfast is vastly superior (definitely not continental). We are inspected by the State of Florida at least once a month and all staff is "food safety certified". I personally fixed your cable the very first day and had Comcast out the next morning to complete the repair. I offered you a 100% refund if you were willing to let us move you to a different hotel, which you refused. It was when you asked for a discount that I asked you for the reason. When you couldn't come up with a reason, the subject was dropped. We collect the balance due at check in, because we don't have a 24 hour front desk. Some guests may need to check out before we open the office at 8am. Dear Reader, bottom line read a few more reviews surrounding this one. We work really hard to maintain our 5 star status on Trip Advisor and we are very proud of it. Michael and staff

Abroasia is just gorgeous. Clean, vast rooms - with one of the biggest beds I've ever seen! I had my own personal veranda where I ate my breakfast and a small swimming pool at the bottom of my veranda steps which felt like my own private pool!

There are 3 small pool in total - two small swimming pools and a lovely, spacious hot tub in the property across the street which is also owned by Ambrosia

Ambrosia is literally a block and a half from bustling Key West night life but so quiet and peaceful you wold think you were miles away!

The staff were very welcoming, knowledgable and helpgul - offering advice about what to do without being over bearing

Dear Lovely, Thanks for the brilliant review and thank you for all your wonderful compliments. You were in the Alligator Suite with a king bed and huge veranda. The pool at the bottom of your steps is our lap pool. We also have a splash pool and hot tub/pool. Our location is close but not too close to all the action. Our staff wants to thank you for your kind words and wants you to return very soon. as you said they are helpful, knowledgeable and not overbearing. Thanks again, Michael and staff

We stayed at the Ambrosia for the first time over Labor Day weekend. I visit Key West a few times a year, and usually stay at the Reach or Ocean Key. Ocean Key is still the best for relaxing with a view, but if you want a true Key West experience, Ambrosia is amazing. Very clean and comfortable (and I am very picky). We had a suite with a beautiful porch for a much lesser price than a shoebox at a resort. Highly reccomend.

Dear Kathie and Richard, Thank you for the nice review. We believe your review is important for those considering a stay in KW. Due to it's historical nature, Key West has an unusual amount of Inns and Bed & Breakfasts. Here at Ambrosia, we aim high. We are pleased you enjoyed it so much. You were in the Sailfish Suite. It has a king bedded bedroom, a large living room with a pull out queen sofa, high ceilings, and a private porch. We are so happy you enjoyed staying here. We are pleased a "picky" person like yourself, found Ambrosia to be "amazing". Thank you for the great review and for all your recommendations. Michael and staff.

My wife and I stayed here from 9/1 to 9/5/12 for our 5th anniversary. We were upgraded from the cheaper Pool Room to the Alligator Pool Suite. It was a one-bedroom w/ a king bed that I wish we could've taken home (I thought our bed was really comfortable, but this one just sucked you in and lulled you to sleep!) It had a large shower, large closest, several armoirs and other storage, a small fridge, a microwave and a ceiling fan. It also had a large outside covered "living room" and "dining room" that was at the end of the swimming pool w/ french doors leading into the room (the door had wood-louvered blinds). The room and the entire property's landscaping were beautiful. There's a gazebo at the other end of the pool that is used for the morning buffet. There was always fresh fruit (apples, pineapple, melon, grapes), cereals, muffins, hard-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and sausage gravy, waffles, breads for toast, juices, milk and coffee...quite the spread and quite good. There's also another, smaller pool on the property.
The ladies in the office (Lexi and Tina) were extremely friendly and helpful with anything we needed or suggestions. They also have quite the display of flyers, money-off offers, etc. for Key West attractions, restaurants and bars. Just the 2-for-1 drink cards for several bars saved us at least $100 over our 4 days there! The location is fantastic; about 1 1/2 blocks off Duval St. and 1/2 way between the length of Duval between the waterfront and where Truman and Duval meet (in the heart of the action). A car is definitely not needed if you don't mind walking a little bit. We highly recommend this place for its location, beauty, serentiy, comfort and service. Don't forget to say hello and pet the resident cat...she'll probably be lying on the couch in the office!

Dear Great, Thank you for the great review. We were so pleased that you allowed us to be part of your 5th Anniversary. Good to hear you slept well in our comfy king bedded suite. We were happy to give you the free upgrade. The Alligator Suite is our most popular room. It is spacious and has a fantastic veranda. The entire property is surrounded by our lush landscaping. You did a great job of listing most of our breakfast items, but you understandably left out a few things. Lexi and Tina are naturally friendly and helpful people. They know the island well and love sharing that knowledge with our guests. The coupons are extremely useful. I use them myself. Our location is so central, you can walk to just about everything. No car needed. Amy says "meow", translation, "hurry back". Thanks again, Michael and staff.
