We stayed there two nights. Tippy from the desk was wonderful to deal with and talk to. Once we got into the rooms they were badly in need of upgrade. Looks like the floors of the Hemingway and Williams hadn't been washed for a long long time. Otherwise the room looked comfy other than couch appeared to be dirty. First night the Hemingway which was an upgrade. Spent several hours before going to bed killing ants in the front room, bathroom and bedroom. Since the attendants start around 9 a.m. and leave by 6 or 7 p.m. we slept there. Next morning told Tippy we had well over a dozen ants killed she apologized and put us in the Williams room and gave us a modest refund for the inconvience. We know bugs etc. are hard to control in this climate but didn't expect the next room to be even worse. This time we collected sixteen more kills in the Williams room the second night and flushed down numerous more in the toilet. Since Tippy had asked the first day if we had any to show her. Tippy apparently was off the our 2nd day and the attendant said she would let them know and take care of the problem as we gave her the sixteen so they could see the problem was real. I had called the owner the 2nd night and she said she didn't want to be rude but it wasn't any real emergency and knew what happened the first night and we had been moved and would go get some bug spray or refund our money at 9 p.m. and we could find somewhere else. We didn't want to pick up that late at night and move and try to find another hotel at so we stuck it out. Other than Tippy the attitude was very disappointing for anyone who just wanted a nice memory of Key West and a couple of good nights sleep without worring about ants crawling in bed with you. As you can imagine my wife got very little sleep those two nights.
