after staying a couple of days at a downtown hotel it is nice to spend the remaining trip relaxing at the Key Ambassador. In the morning the sunrise is beautiful. The pool is very nice and the Tiki hut has the best conch fritters. You can walk to LaTrattoria or Benihana's for

We opted for an ocean view room. It was well worth it. We were very pleased with the size of the room, it was SO roomy. Lovely walk-in shower. Breakfast was also very good with a good selection. The pool looked great, although we didn't get to use it as we were only there

Absolutely the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. The carpet was so filthy that our feet were black just walking around the room. After observing the cleaning crew we realized they never used a vacuum in any of the rooms, so far as we had observed. Also, construction in

Convenient and comfortable place to crash while in Key West. Has a pool and hot tub. Has a close by convenience store that is open 24/7. We had a 2 bedroom condo and it fit 6 people comfortably. Has all the necessary stuff like towels, utensils, linens, pots and pans, etx.

We only stayed here a couple nights while waiting for our condo. The room was very spacious. Our shower was a walk in and had lots of shelves to sit shampoo or whatever. There was only one sink but a large counter with ample cabinets. The pool was very nice too.

No. This is entirely understandable given the young families , no smokers who would feel imposed upon, and being a licensed area . I know smokers can contain themsrlvrs for 2 hours . When I smoked it was around 4 a day . Restrictions and changing attitudes helped me cut down and quit .

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.
