“Perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Stayed with Friends (2 couples) in a 2 bedroom suite...2 floors, 2.5 bath, modern, clean, we were very impressed! The pool was so nice and relaxing. Free happy hour from 4-530 which we was a pleasant surprise! Location was perfect. We would all recommend this hotel in a second. We loved our stay!

We stayed here just for an overnight but would have loved to have had the time to stay longer. From check in to check out we couldn't fault either the accommodation or the staff. So lovely and helpful and friendly. The suite was beautiful! My husband and I stayed there with my sister and brother-in-law and had 2 beautiful bedrooms (both ensuite) upstairs and the living area and kitchen (beautifully equipped and stocked) downstairs. We had a lovely pool view. The kitchen had coffee, muffins, ice cream and chocolates for turn down. This just made our stay in Key West super special. Thanks especially to Christiana (hope I got that right) for all of her assistance and banter. Can't recommend this highly enough. Really top class luxury. No sea view but only a few steps to the ocean.

Room Tip: Ours was great. Pool view and bi-level

Thank you Santa Maria Suites for a wonderful week!!! Here you will find 1 and 2 bedroom suites. They are actually small apartments, complete with a fully equipped kitchen and laundry room. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom. The rooms and grounds are beautiful and maintained top notch. Plenty of parking Happy Hour by the pool, muffins in the morning, chocolate at night are only a few wonderful treats waiting for you.

My husband and I stayed here for our 3rd anniversary and this little hotel was fantastic! The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated and there was PLENTY of space. I would recommend this place to everyone looking for a nice place to stay in Key West. Staff was very nice as well! Location is very close to the southernmost point, but far from where people go for the sunsets.

The Santa Maria Suites is a fantastic choice to stay while in Key West. The rooms are a perfect size, clean and you get all the amenities in your very own condo. The pool is right there along with the friendly staff who bend over backwards for what you need. You will be walking distance to beaches, restaurants and Duvall street. If you don't feel like waking, there's a scooter rental across the street. I can't say enough good things about this place. This is the only place I stay when I visit.

I was a bit nervous when we first pulled up, as this hotel is clearly from a different era. That turned out to be a part of its charm. We had a two bedroom suite, and it was modern with all high end finishes and appliances. The pools and pool area were wonderful and there was an attendant on hand at all times to hand out towels and mix yummy complimentary smoothies! The location was great, one block off of Duval and one block from the beach (there was a hotel attendant at the beach as well). This hotel was a bit pricey, but was by far the nicest resort type hotel I've stayed in in Key West.

Room Tip: The rooms with a pool view are woth a premium

Our main lobby building is an historic building in Key West but once you walk in to the lobby and your suite, you will see we are very up to date!
