Great location, but very poorly managed. Upon arriving, the toilet in our room was already clogged. We alerted the housekeeper, who angrily told maintenance to see to the problem. When we returned an hour later, the clog was gone however the floor of the bathroom (including the shower mat) was covered in toilet water and a chunk of human feces...

We stayed for a week as we had a wedding in town. We were not disappointed. The hotel is quaint and old-school, but was a good value for the money. The room was basic, with a fridge and coffee maker. It is definitely retro-style, but the available amenities were all we needed. The owners are usually on the premises, and...

This was a lovely quiet hotel just a short 5 min walk away from the main tourist area of Duval Street. It is the over the other side to Mallory Square, but we enjoyed the walk (about 25 mins) seeing all the fabulous houses along the way and popping in and out of the local bars! The rooms were comfy...

We booked this motel several weeks before we arrived, and paid upfront.( big mistake)!. We arrived to find the entire front was being redone, with all the mess of grinding stones etc. No one had told us. Our room was a horrible dark, cell like room at the back. There is a small pool, which is fine, except they were...

Stayed here the night before we set out for The Dry Tortugas. It was affordable and looked nice on Trip Advisor. We pulled up and instantly was fascinated with the cool retro 50s style look. The guy in the office was nice and informative. We checked out our room and then rented bikes (from El Patio Motel) to cruise around...

I was surprised how nice the room was when we pulled up as it seemed the place was rather small. We had 2 seperate rooms and we couldnt hear any noise from the other vacationers. The only issue we had was parking but we did get there very late so the next day we got a great spot. The pool...

What a wonderful motel! When staying in key West you just don't know what kind of room you will get when you are on a budget. This place was sooo clean and comfortable! Beds were firm, pillows a little too soft. Staff people were very friendly and appreciated your stay with them. Definitely a prize!

We booked this hell hole room for 11 nights for $2,900. First they advertised Queen size beds but were really double size. The front door was made of cheap wood where anyone could break in. There was no key for the dead bolt making us weary of leaving anything there. We noticed bug flies and rusty moldy fixtures. The morning...

The first impression is fairly pleasant. It is a charming 60ish era motel in a quiet residential neighborhood, with a nice courtyard with green plants and a water fountain that adds a pleasant ambience. On the plus side: It is near the southernmost side of the Key so you'll find the waterfront just a couple of blocks away and the...
