Don't let the lack of curb appeal scare you off, this is a pretty comfortable place. Sure, the floors could have been cleaner and the air conditioner made a strange gurgling noise.... but really, there were fewer ants in the bathroom here than at the fancy B&B where I stayed in Key West (and this place was less than half the price). Also, this is not a place to stay if you're looking to get a lot of sleep. The band plays until the noise ordinance kicks in (10PM on a week night) and the dive boat loads the tanks at 7AM. Both can be loud enough to keep you from sleeping.
Ok, I know I'm not selling this place very well (maybe I don't want the demand to increase and the price to go up). We really had a great time. Considering that this is a dive place, the rooms were quite clean. With the exception of a few ants (pretty unavoidable in the keys), the bathroom was really clean. The beds were very comfortable. The view was incredible. The staff was friendly. The deals with the dive boat were great (best price in the keys - plus a discount for those staying at the resort and a free drink at the Tiki bar!).
I will definitely return to this place. It's not for everyone, but I love it.... and I'm actually pretty picky about hotels.
