The common areas where bright and inviting. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I really can't say enough good things about this place. And the funny thing is I choose... More

Great place close to Duvall Street and areas to drink and eat. Simple elegance with a private and quiet relaxing atmosphere. There is only limited parking however everything is within walking distance.

The service was wonderful and incredibly pleasant. The folks working the front desk were more than happy to help with anything we needed. The bed was massive and firm without being hard while the room was clean.

Perfect location; very helpful manager and staff; beautiful "oasis" right in the middle of Old Town; extremely well-kept, clean, updated with meticulous appointments, details and upkeep. Nice continental breakfast and wonderful coffee. Free wine and snacks every night at happy hour, as well.

Great price and great location for a quick business trip to Key West. My check in was smooth and parking in the lot next door was reasonable for Old Town Key West. The staff was friendly and helpful. One of the best things about staying in Key West is getting around by bicycle and their rentals were in excellent condition.

We loved it! The staff was wonderful and very friendly! The location was perfect as we like being near all the action. Room was large and bathroom was large - the water was wonderfully hot!! Breakfast had a nice assortment of choices and they served Starbuck coffee. Grounds and pool were very pretty. We are going back for another visit.

Looked like a 1950's motel that had never been updated or upgraded. The room was small, the bathroom microscopic and there was no desk to work on. Stunned when I opened the door. It is convenient to Duval Street and the Courthouse but that's the best you can say about it.

“Room #34 on second floor overlooking pool and hot tup; extra large with three crazy large closets and built-in counter with drawers. Shower is walk-in with two shower heads. Glass sink countertop is small however, only small drawback. Tons of natural light with windows all around and even skylights.”
