“Key Ambassador Resort”

Very nice large clean rooms. Ours had a screened back porch & nice breakfast. Great location across from ocean & a short drive to Duval street. Very helpful & friendly staff. Have stayed there twice & would stay again.

OK, so I stayed here, 30 years ago, on my honeymoon, and loved it then. I recently found myself without a flight home, and called them, (them being the closest to the airport) and they had a room for me. It was SO comfortable! Mini fridge, cable, internet, great mattress, great pool, great poolside bar, laundry mat, continental breakfast, friendly workers, etc. I was only very disappointed that I could not stay LONGER!!

Our room was in great shape, had a very nice screened porch overlooking the pool and beach, and was located just away from the hustle and bustle. Breakfast was good with Jimmie Dean sausage and egg biscuits and a very friendly staff. The downside is that it is in the flight path of the airport. We didn't hear any flights after 10:30 or before 7:30.

We drove in from our vacation in Naples and stayed here a few days. The room was large so it accommodated our group well. It was clean and beds were comfy. We spent very little time here. The pool area was nice and the view of the ocean from our room was spectacular. There was a small patio with chairs where we had coffee in the morning which had a beautiful ocean view. The cost for Key West was very good. We were not there to sit at a resort. We were there to Duval crawl. We took a cab to Duval and did the crawl until the wee hours of the morning and went back to sleep. We would definitely stay here again. Cabs are cheap in Key West so taking one to the action is not a problem.

A single night and i was glad to leave the place. Overpriced, soul less, bang 'em in, bang 'em out hotel. Nice pool, right on the airport flightpath! The room was clean and spacious but dark and depressing. A back door opened on to a balcony completely covered by a mosquito net. Practical, but ugly, the view of a dirt track and a few trees, then another building. Hmmm. The breakfast room was a converted hotel room, and was packed. Many people just grabing something and going back to there room. Forget about taking a stroll into town, its nowhere near. Had it cost the half of what we paid, (280$) one could have turned a blind eye, but not for that price!!

The hotel has beautiful water views but is nowhere near the attractions of downtown Key West. You definitely need a car! This hotel is old and needs some updating. The pool is very pretty. The rooms are clean. The towels are thin and lack absorbency.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view.

Had a great ocean view room with a balcony. Trolley stopping at this hotel is a plus if you don't want to drive your car to Duval St. area. Okay hotel to stay at but will try another one next time. Breakfast had no variations, same hard boiled eggs & microwaveable sausage/cheese sandwich everyday, although had waffles, some cereals, milk & fruits (bananas & oranges). Bathrooms are outdated & had black mold stains around the shower. Did not get a wake up call when requested.
