Very nice sized & well furnished room...small kitchen, spotlessly clean & fresh. Nice pool area. A bit too far from our favorite spots but we walked one direction & took a cab back....Last time in town, we paid about $100 more for a very similar room at a different property....While I think $214 for this place is high, that is...

This looks like a bit of an old-fashioned motel from the outside, but the rooms have been done up quite nicely. It is a very comfortable place to stay and while on the edge of town is an easy stroll to all of the main attractions. There is an included breakfast, but hmmm pretty basic. There is a coin operated...

Here you get the essentials. The "complimentary" breakfast is a bit of a misnomer. I imagine off season rates are OK. Peak season prices are over the top. Plan ahead and you'll find better. Good people however. The issues are at a management level. Pool is clean.

My son, daughter in law and I took a spur of the moment six hour drive to Key West on a Saturday and we were lucky enough to even find a room let alone a clean comfortable beautiful quiet one within walking distance to Duval. Our visit was the first day of the first round of Spring Break so that...

Not the most attractive looking motel on the outside, but don't let that stop you from booking here! The staff is polite and helpful, the rooms were clean, and the continental breakfast was tasty. We arrived early and as our room wasn't ready, we were upgraded to the suite! Private entrance, kitchenette, bedroom and living room. A wonderful surprise, and...

Great location close to famous Duvall Street and the South Beach. Free limited parking. If you get a spot don't move your car, just walk or ride the Old Town Trolley which you can catch about a block away. There is lots to see and do, and great places to eat, within walking distance. Convenient, clean laundry facilities. The recently...
