“Relaxing stay in Key West”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I have stayed at multiple places in Key West...regular hotels, other inns, but nothing is better (although it is the most costly too). Perfect location, friendly staff. I found the place because I wanted to bring my golden retriever and Ambrosia is pet-friendly! Parking is a challenge, and the pool is not heated....otherwise GREAT!

We are delighted that you had a relaxing stay at Ambrosia. We are located in the heart of Old Town, just a block and a half away from Duval. Close to all of the action, but far enough to enjoy a peaceful day lounging in our courtyard catching some sun. Yes, we welcome pets, they are part of the family, and they deserve a vacation in paradise too!! Those who choose to drive to KW, we will help each guest find a parking space, and the best advice is to leave the car parked. Getting around town....biking or walking is the easiest. During your stay we were experiencing a cold front with a high near 70; however, you have three swimming options to choose from: the dip pool is 85 degrees; the lap pool is 80 degrees, and the Jacuzzi is 99 degrees. Until next time…Best Regards Tim and the Ambrosia Family

One of Key West's best. Friendly , clean, and great breakfasts. Our first choice for a number of trips, and we stayed at others before finding this great spot. Located within walking distance of all the great spots. Don't forget to go to Blue Heaven!

Room Tip: No bad rooms. Check the pictures for specifics that meet your needs.

Hello Tim and Sharon! Thank you for the terrific review!!! As our guests you stayed in our private Ambrosia Suite that is located in our historic Ambrosia House. This two-room suite features a large living room with a queen sleeper sofa and a private bedroom. Walking the grounds, I saw you and Sharon with your friends Bill & Liz (who occupied the Captain’s Quarters) daily sitting on the front veranda wasting the day away enjoying each other’s company. What a hoot! I agree with your comment regarding Blue Heaven. Their lobster benny accompanied by a Bloody Mary is delicious! It was a pleasure to be your host while you were in KW. We hope to see you on your next trip. Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

My wife and I had a great stay at Ambrosia. Staff, location, breakfast, room features were all the best. This was our first trip to Key West. We would stay here again based on our great experience. I really appreciated the helpful staff with parking, site seeing advice, and restaurants.

Hello Bob and Debbie! We really like that catch phrase…Ambrosia =”Key West’s Best”. Has a nice ring to it!!! As our guests you stayed in our second floor pool room featuring French doors that open up to a semi-private balcony. I am sure you enjoyed that you were only steps away from the lap pool, dip pool and our complimentary poolside breakfast. Tina, Lexi, Marilyn, and Jenny appreciate your praises and can’t wait to welcome you back on your next trip to paradise. Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosisa Family

We loved staying at Ambrosia! Everything was wonderful! The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The location was nice and quiet but close enough to stumble home after a few too many! It was a little too cold to go swimming in the pool but the hot tub across the street was great alternative. The breakfast served every morning was also delicious! Overall a great stay!! Looking forward to coming back again! ps- the free bottled water in the mini fridge was much appreciated!

We are thrilled that you had a WONDERFUL stay! Chelsea we agree, Ambrosia is located in a quiet section of Old Town, and if you had a few too many, not a far stumble back from Duval! During your stay KW experienced a cold front with a high near 70; however, you have three options to choose from: the dip pool is 85 degrees; the lap pool is 80 degrees, and the Jacuzzi 99 degrees.

My new husband and I travelled to Key West for our wedding and stayed at the Ambrosia Key West. We could not be more pleased with the amenities, the lodging, and the outstanding services. We purchased the Wedding package and the staff at Ambrosia took all of the work out of the planning. The Honeymoon suite was wonderful. The rooms were large and grounds were beautiful. With our package we had gift certificates included for many of the best restaurants and the staff worked with us to coordinate everything. We will come back to Ambrosia for our next trip to Key West. Thanks to Tim and his outstanding team for their outstanding customer service. Ruth and Skip P.

CONGRATULATIONS Ruth and Skip! We are honored that you allowed Ambrosia to be a part of your special day. As our guests you stayed in the honeymoon suite. I am sure you enjoyed our Simply Perfect Wedding Package featuring a couples massage, bike rentals, restaurant gift certificates, champagne, chocolates, robes….Ruth, we are pleased that you chose the private tropical veranda outside of the Jungle Room for your ceremony, it was the perfect setting. Thank you for the generous review. We hope to see you on your 1 year anniversary. Best Wishes, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

The Mid-Week discount got our attention at first so we told friends asnd the 4 of us booked it for Feb for just a few days. We were all very pleased with the place, the hosts and the location. It was very convenient to Duvall St and the ferry which was our transportation from Ft Myers. Our rooms were upstairs with front porch facing the street and we really enjoyed sitting out there after those long fun days of exploring and touring Key West. Even had breakfast on the porch too!
The heated pool was very relaxing. We got to know our way around and will book it again next Feb for a longer stay. The discount coupons from Tina were great, we tried new restaurants every day and all of them were great!

We are thrilled you arrived on the Key West Express. Several of our guests that check-in daily, opt to take the ferry from Fort Myers! Thank you for sharing your Ambrosia Moments with us! We agree, Ambrosia is fabulous and fun! John and Eileen as our guests you stayed in our Honeymoon Suite which is located on the second floor of the Ambrosia House. I am sure you and Eileen enjoyed some R&R with the chandelier dimmed in the two person in-room Jacuzzi which is located in the beautifully appointed master bathroom. Tina said thank you for bringing Christy and Frank along. They stayed in the private Havana Cabana, which is just around the corner from the Honeymoon Suite. Yes, we are very convenient to Duval, just a block and a half away. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed sitting on the large veranda, after a long day of discovering KW, this is a great way to end your day in paradise. Thank you for taking the time to review Ambrosia, see you in February 2014! Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

My wife and I wanted to get away from Ohio in February and experience Key West. We chose the Ambrosia and could not have been happier with our choice. Check-in was very easy and Tina welcomed us with a couple of adult beverages. She also shared a number of recommended restaurants and places to see. After a quick tour of the property, we were ready to go.

We spent three days at Ambrosia and it was great! The room was neat and clean, service was very good. We enjoyed a full breakfast - eggs, bacon, waffles, fruit, juice and coffee - by the pool each morning. Very tasty! Ambrosia is just a few blocks from Duval Street and Mallory Square. Very convenient!

We definitely will return to Ambrosia the next time we get to Key West!

Room Tip: We really enjoyed our Pool Room. Very nice and convenient to breakfast.

Jim and Mary thank you for sharing your Ambrosia experience with us. After traveling on the overseas highway or flying into EYW what better way to start your vacation then a refreshing beverage? Tina is pleased to hear that you enjoyed her dining recommendations. Tina has called KW her home for over 20 years and she has a wealth of knowledge regarding the island, whether it is a dinner recommendation or how many knots of wind we have today, she is the go to person!! We are delighted that you liked our bountiful breakfast. Best on the island! I am sure you enjoyed catching some sun rays in our tropical courtyard. We hope to see you again on your next trip to paradise! Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family
