“Just say "NO" to the Historic Tavernier”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Our stay was one night, January 2, 2013 (my worst birthday experience ever) on the way to Key West.....should have kept driving. When we pulled up there was garbage and dirty laundry lying everywhere. What a first impression! We were sitting in the parking lot when they called and virtually threatened to take away our "reserved by a credit card" room. By the time we arrived in the musty old room, kicking and shoving our way through 3 foot high piles of sheets and towels we were greeted by lizards running around our room. I expected it to be outdated and old but eclectic and romantic....not a true revolting dump, extremely over priced ....with no amenities... By the time we had perused this unkempt closet and decided to check out and move on they had locked up and left....my husband called to the office (all of this occurred in less than 15 minutes) The office was closed and locked with not even an answering machine this occurring more than an hour and a half before their posted work hours. There is nothing romantic nor reminiscent of Bogey and Bacall in Key Largo...keep driving...

Room Tip: No maid service, they also have a large barking dog that resides in the hotel with the owners.

We just stayed there and we wished we didn't. Believe me, all the poor reviews on this page are accurate. No housecleaning, no night clerk, no bathroom ammenities, no drinking glasses, no coffee maker, found some old shoes and a baby bottle under the bed. Worst place we ever stayed.

Room Tip: All rooms are much alike!

My wife and I stayed a total of 5 nights at this hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much! 1. Hotel location. It was a perfect location between Miami and Key West, our two main destinations. This hotel is really close to food, fuel, and shopping as well. Finding a close beach can be a challenge though. 2. The hotel. I read several reviews about the musty smell hoping it was not true. It is true. They do a good job of covering the odor however. Its and old building and the ventilation is poor. Its not going to ruin your trip. The AC in the rooms is a little loud but not unbearable, as busy as you will be in the keys you will sleep like a rock regardless. Walls are a not thin but many of the rooms are connected by a door which the cover up with a small dresser. I read many reviews about hot water not coming on. This is false. Turn the hot water on first and adjust back to cold and you will have hot shower ready water in less than a minute. Some must haves for staying at this hotel: Hairdryer, alarm clock, bed was a little noisy too your own cooler and ice b/c rooms do not have a fridge- there is a community fridge that makes ice but slowly. If you can, bring your own laundry detergent and dryer sheets. The washer and dryer is free! Yes the office closes at 5 pm. And many reviews said no housekeeping but we had fresh towels in our room every day. Should be called a motel rather than a hotel. All in all its a nice clean little establishment and dirt cheap for the keys and we had a great stay because honestly you are going to be spending most of your time enjoying the Keys...not your room. Overall 6.5 of 10.

Room Tip: Eat at the cafe next door its delicious! Enjoy your trip!

Terrible Hotel. No staff (e.g. no House Keeping). Very tiny rooms. Hardly any water in the shower (very low presure). Very noisy TV picture (almost impossible to watch). Air condition was so loud that we couldn't sleep when turned on. Stay away!

Absoluty bad. No staff at 6:30 pm to give us the room's key. The room wasn't well clean and noisy, expecially air conditioned.
We paid our night before to arrive so we slept in this hotel, but it was horrible!!! I even found a caterpillar in the bathroom...

I have a hard time going up stairs (my back). When I was checking in to room was upstairs I asked for a room on ground level she made an Al Gore “huff” and change to room. The only thing that was not 60 years old was the T.V. and hair dryer. We stayed two nights we did not have clean towels or any maid service.

Room Tip: Good for time travel movie

We are divers and say here a few times a year. The last stay out room 210 had a very loud A/C unit and the bed made sooooo much noise we could not sleep. When we said some thing to the manager she just said all the beds are the same. We will go down the road a little and find a new place to stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
