We arrived early and manager allowed us to park at hotel. Sure helped, as parking is hard to find. Easy walk to Southernmost Point. Hotel was clean and people friendly. It's about two miles to other side of Keys. We walked and enjoyed the sights as we went. Grabbed the Trolley car for a sight seeing tour, and then went...

Once you realize that the trip is to Key West and not to sit in your room all day, you immediately realize that even tho the room is simple and sufficient, it is a bargain compared to the rather expensive alternatives. The room was adequate and clean, breakfast is in a little room at the entrance and is also just...

From the warm, friendly, accommodating staff to the updated and clean rooms to the location for walking everywhere...we found this motel to be perfect. Great pool area, breakfast items, parking and coffee anytime too. Competitive rates. Our car light was on and they telephoned us while we were out to let us know. Recommended!

Sorry that we could not allow you to re-enter the room at 2 p.m. that you checked out of at 11 a.m. Once you check out of a room you cannot go back 3 hours later and expect to get back into the room for any reason. That room is no longer yours. The room was already made clean for...

Found this to be an absolutely fantastic place to stay. I've been visiting Key West every December for the last few years and have stayed in a number of the island's lower-priced hotels. This was by far the best value I've found - a couple of blocks from South Beach and the Southernmost point, a short walk to Duval Street,...

Stayed here for my wedding anniversary weekend and my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. We usually stay at another hotel but we wanted something closer to Duval Street and attractions. Out hotel room was large and we had a massive king sized bed. It was very comfy. The hotel grounds includes a pool and next to it a sitting...

We stayed here for one night on a road trip. The motel is easy to find with plenty of parking and the rooms are clean and fresh. It's situated in the pleasant, less noisy part of town, just steps from the southernmost point marker. There are nice shops and restaurants nearby and it's a pleasant walk up Duval Street into...

For one of the lowest prices in the Duval Street area, this turned out to be a very nice place! I got there too early to check in, but the front desk did my paperwork and allowed me to park, which let me check out the town and do my sunset cruise without worry. When I got back, I was...
