Stayed 3 nights and the night I got home after showering i developed multiple bed bug bites on my arms and legs. Sent message on their website because their email wasn't working and heard nothing. beat up, old, dirty and bed bugs and also ants in bathroom...if that's what you want so be it. I wouldn't send my worst enemy there to stay!

We have very much enjoyed this place! It’s NOT fancy, but it has a lovely retro charm. The bed was comfortable and we had a beautiful view. The staff was always working touching up paint and cleaning. They were very personable . There are lots of great restaurants and shops around. It’s just a laid back, no fuss stay. The only downside at all was the very small bathroom, but you really don’t vacation for that!

We left Key West late and really just took our time but they were super nice. The hotel is very clean and hand sanitizer stations are everywhere. First, check in was super easy. We like small boutique hotels and this one does not disappoint. We had a king deluxe room and the view was amazing. The bed was really comfy and the sheets felt good. The fridge was a nice size and we loved the tv. They have Paul Mitchell teatree products in the bathroom and the real biggie was nice beach chairs and umbrella not cheap ones that break easy. Plenty of coffee. While they dont serve food, there is an ice cream shop that serves breakfast just outside the door and the Taco Joint is also on the other end. Now, I saw some reviews about housekeeping but let me say this. I was happy that they didnt come in our room to clean up. We are grown and we can pull our covers up and pull our trash. I usually tell them not to, just give me some towels anyway. They will bring you clean towels and coffee if needed. One thing though…..Sheldon Hotel….please put a broom and dustpan in the closet. :) We loved this hotel and will be back. The location is perfect and they have everything needed for a stay at the beach.

I am still unhappy about the "free parking" that has a $10 per day "administration fee"!!!! The website clearly says "free parking" but that is not true. We stayed 3 nights and the parking add-on fee was over $50. If I could have gotten a refund we would have gone elsewhere. The room was OK. We paid for an ocean front view but the windows were so dirty it was hard to enjoy. Our mirror in the bathroom was also very dirty. We had NO service of cleaning to our room at all because of COVID. When I asked for some spray cleaner and paper towels so that I could clean, no one (front desk or cleaning lady) seemed to know what I was talking about. Makes you wonder.... The location is excellent. Coffee in the lobby was surprisingly good. Beach and broadwalk are great. Margaritaville is right next door with good restaurants. Giorgio's is good for breakfast on the water. Plenty of clean beach towels and umbrellas. Mattress was OK with plenty of pillows. TV was OK. Fridge was big plus.

I travelled with my mother, it was a pre-mother's day quick getaway. We had an amazing experience there. We got there around 12 noon, which means a few more hours before check in. We first checked to see if there is any room already available at that time. The answer was no. Then I asked if we could leave our luggage in their office so we could start enjoying the beach. And without hesitation, the lady at the front desk said "Sure!" and guided us to their small office. We changed and headed out for food (right next door!) and hung around the beach (right in front!) until it was time to check in. So as far as location, you cannot get any closer to the beach than here. The service was excellent throughout our whole stay. There are free towels, umbrellas, and chairs on a first-come first-serve basis, although I think I saw a few people take chairs to their rooms. Haha. Again, location location location! Right on the beach and restaurants are just next door. Price is definitely worth it! Will stay here again for sure!
