Anthony and the team run a lovely, chilled guest house in Key West. Had a lovely time by the pools and hot tubs, meeting people from all over. The rooms are comfortable and were serviced well daily. The hotel is a short walk from the main drag in Key West, so plenty of options for drinking and eating. And the... More

After reading some of the reviews, i was dubious. I will say that for the most part, the staff was very nice when found. The room on the other hand was less than adequate for what we paid. The furniture paint was chipped, and the mattress wasn't close to comfortable. The television kept losing network. $400 a night, I expected... More

After looking forward to an anniversary trip to Key West, the Equator Resort was underwhelming. The entire staff at this resort needs to take customer service training, unless the owner really doesn't care. From check-in until we checked out, the entire staff was very disengaged with the guests. Staff would just walk by and ignore guests, never asking if we... More

We stayed at the Equator for six days in early September. The hotel is kept very clean and it was obvious that they keep on top of maintaining the place. Facilities are really good - the two pools are both small but this is the old town of Key West, so that's to be expected. Breakfast is included and is... More

We have been staying at the Equator for 13 years. There have been ups and downs. This place is totally up right now. We just had a really great stay. Recent improvements include a waterfall in one pool, a new bar setup, breakfast and happy hour improvements, and the current staff is great. Breakfast now features Starbucks coffee and fantastic...

This resort had a good vibe about it and nice rooms. Bar with happy hour very nice and staff were very friendly and outgoing.
