“Key West Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

The newly redecorated rooms were an added plus to our recent stay. The hotel and staff have always been and remain top notch. Consider this hotel on your next vacation. The only down side is the continental breakfast....too many people in a small space makes for difficult navigation, we preferred to skip it and breakfast elsewhere, but that is my preference.

We liked this Best Western for several reasons. We chose it because it was walking distance from the main part of Key West and yet far enough away to be very quiet. Although the rooms are nice and spacious and ours was well located, one should make an effort to ask where the rooms are located before booking. There are a few directly behind the pool filters and pumps, which are noisy, and there are some either opposite a blank wall or overlooking the parking lot.

The breakfast was a bit below average but adequate. The price was fair and they do not charge for parking. We did not use the car at all in the 4 days of our stay since we could walk everywhere.

Room Tip: away from pool equipment and not opposite a blank wall

My husband and I returned to the Hibiscus this year to a pleasant surprise. The motel has been renovated. Although the rooms have always been comfortable they were a bit dated. The updates include more modern bathroom fixtures , new floors (so much nicer than carpeting) and fresh paint and finishings.
The pool area has always been welcoming. The only thing that would be a negative is the continental breakfast area. It needs to be spread out a bit more, it gets too congested at peak hours. We ended up going to Ana's for coffee and bagels.

Otherwise this is a great value motel.

WOuld recommend this quaint hotel to anyone. Rooms are HUGE, pool area is beautiful,one street off Duval, quiet neighborhood, 2 blocks from ocean, staff was unbelievably accomodating. Will never go back to Doubletree which is beautiful, but twice as pricey and way out from everything happening in Key West.

Good location in the South area of the city (2 blocks from Duvall St), although not in the very busy sector (north of the city) which is easely accessible by cab or bike. Located in a quiet area but close to everything (Duvall St., Hemingway house, etc.).

My family stayed there Nov19-22.We were very surprised at the size of the room & loved the extra sink outside of the bathroom. The hardwood floors are so nice compared to carpeting. There is a sitting area with 2 chairs & a table, & the room is huge with 2 queen beds. The room was very clean when we arrived. The pool area is so nice & my son & husband went swimming at night until the lights went off at midnight. I have looked at my other hotel & resort options when planning this trip to Key West. I found this to be the best deal, money wise , and also so close to the downtown area that you could walk anywhere. Don't stay at one of the fancy resorts outside of town, that charge much more & also charge a daily activity fee & parking, stay at this hotel & you will be very pleased like we were.

Stayed first at another local hotel that was cheaper, then switched to Hibiscus, well worth the extra $30/night. Saltwater pool was perfect, easy walk to Duval St and tourist sites. Rooms were spacious and felt new. Staff constantly cleaning, the whole place glowed.
