An unplanned trip from SoBe to Key West left us looking for a room at 5pm. We weren't able to get a room at the Blue Parrot Inn, so we figured we'd try the Cypress House. Slightly off the Duval main, it seemed quiet and clean enough. Our room was in the back off the pool. It was small, which isn't generally a problem, but it was rather run down, the floor was slanted toward the door and the ceramic was cracked. The bathroom was also quite dated. There was a bar fridge and a warped mirror as well as the standard queen bed (comfortable mattress, satisfactory linens and ridiculously rock-hard pillows), two night stands, a five-drawer high boy and a slipper chair all in a perhaps 11' by 12' room. The real problem was a wall-unit air conditioner whose compressor turned on every five to seven minutes during the night to keep the room at 74 degrees. I was awoken throughout the night, even after I used the decorative bed pillow for my head and one of the rocks, I mean pillows, to cover my other ear as I made every effort to sleep through the train-wreck noise of an air conditioner. Why didn't I open the windows, you ask? Because there were none to open, only the french doors that served as the entrance to the room. Upon checkout, I advised the front desk of the problem and the horrible, sleepless night I had had. Their response? "Oh, we're real sorry about that." Maybe the other rooms are better than this one, but I wouldn't bother trying. And, by the way, this is what $267.63 gets you!
