First the problems: the bathroom was old and needed remodeling. Check in staff was busy and not too friendly. The good: room was great - spacious, clean, modern. Had a great view of the ocean and a nice balcony. The patio door was a bit old and hard to open, but it was worth it

Hotel's Favourite
This is the best place we have stayed so far, the ocean view and the magnificent pool with tiki hut for when you are parched and need a refreshing pick me up while you are sitting in the pool or by the pool, this hotel is close enough to any activity you choose and their

Stayed here for several nights on a recent trip. Composed of several different buildings right along but across the street from the beach. The place is great for catching a sunrise, especially if you ask for an ocean view room, which we did. Plenty of off-street parking.

"HELL WEEK" in Key West from what I am told from the locals the busiest week of the year and the price points on the hotels are simply outrageous. We secured a room for about $250.00 per night here so with that price point you would think has to be good right? Boy was I wrong

Response from Jacqui L, General Manager at Best Western Key Ambassador Resort Inn
Responded 3 days ago
Dear TommyB777, We always appreciate feedback, whether a compliment or constructive criticism, because we can learn from both. I’m glad you enjoyed our fantastic pool area, which is definitely a guest-favorite, and happy to hear props on our complimentary breakfast. As for the rest, I can’t apologize enough for the problems with the humidifier; it clearly wasn’t working properly and I’m sorry you suffered the damp, noisy and unpleasant consequences. While we won’t be knocking our property down, I do want to let you know that plans are in the works for extensive renovations which will eliminate the issues you noted. I hope you’ll come back when everything is fully refreshed in the Fall. Please feel free to reach out to me personally to discuss further. Thank you again, Jacqui - General Manager

We have been staying there for over 20 years. Rooms have always been clean, if you arrive early they will allow you to change and will keep your luggage until your room is ready, while you enjoy their pool. The Cheekee hut is great. Food is good, bartenders work hard keeping

Buena vista
can you smoke by the pool and tiki bar ?
It’s a 3 mile drive to the center of Key West turning right out of the hotel and following the coast - lovely drive . The beach 🏖 areas are clearly visible within 2 miles - also jogging 🏃‍♀️ distance . If you keep as close to the coast as possible you will find free parking . It’s cold tonight in Eastbourne UK and I am getting nostalgic about Key West . One tip : The trolley 🚃 tour picks up at the hotel (you can buy tickets at reception ) I strongly recommend doing the full loop as it’s a great orientation tool.

We got the trolley tickets the first time in key west. Was able to buy them right in the Lobby of the Best Western Key Ambassador. They were $30 something a piece. Best part there is a trolley stop right at the hotel next to the lobby. Enjoyed the tour around town. Worth it to take the whole loop once. Then you can get on and off where ever there is a trolley stop. If you don't have trouble walking it is a great way to get around. I am handicapped but managed just fine. Know where you want to go and get a trolley map to find out where the closet stops are to what you want to see. They offered two day passes as well. Driving around downtown is not too difficult but parking is. Most spaces are metered. There were some parking garages so I have done it both driving and by trolley.
