“Great time!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Had a great time at this hotel. Was right off the main street and if you like or don't mind walking, could walk down to all the restaurants, bars and shopping. We did the first night, then rented a scooter at Tropical Scooters and was much easier getting back and forth (parked in lot and around key west for free). Breakfast was good, limited seating but people are always getting up and down. Had a pool with some lounge chairs we sat by a little. Would return and recommend to others! Staff was great, clean room, lots of room. Felt like a boutique hotel, not a motel!

Fairly clean room. expensive but I was there during peak season. Walking distance to downtown clubs and bars. Walking distance to water views and the southern most tip of the United States. Nice average pool area.

Key West is one of those places where is very hard to pick a hotel. Either you go for broke with the expensive options or take a risk among the budget choices, commonly target with terrible reviews.
I’ve tried the middle road and here’s what I got; Excellent space, great comfort (with a little bit of luxury look and feel) and cleanness.
Now, the critics: I expected better towels on a 200 bucks hotel. The blinds are “cutesy” but not as effective as a simple blackout.
You’re one block away from Duvall street, but close to its ‘dead’ end. To go where everybody wants to be (sunset pier) you have to walk more than a mile.
In the end I think it’s a fair choice and the price is, unfortunately, compatible with the hype around Key West.

We are on the quiet side of the island where it is about 50% cheaper than the hotels on Duval St. A short walk gets you to the action, which also keeps you from the noise. It certainly is a subjective choice - what do you really want from your vacation? Here you enjoy the island and still have an escape from the crowds. Thanks for posting!

Stayed here in August 2014. Standard Room was very spacious, clean and up to date. Complimentary breakfast-good selection. Walking distance to Duval Street. Walked all the way to Mallory Square-probably 20 min walk. Pool and Spa was average but clean- no poolside bar. Free parking. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 101- bottom floor right outside front office but two steps from pool.

Criteria for our accommodations in Key West: Ample parking, free breakfast, free internet, onsite pool, walking distance to most everything, 2 queen beds, and of course, reasonably priced. The Hibiscus hit on all of these items! Upon arrival, everything was as expected or better. Recent renovations have brought this motel up to fairly current standards. The breakfast was great. Being just 1 block off Duval Street made for an easy time getting around. It is about a mile to Mallory Square, which was a bit of a hike in the heat (90 plus), but still doable. We would highly recommend this motel.

We loved staying here. Beautiful pool area. Very clean. Employees were always seen working hard to keep things clean. Parking was excellent. Close to Duval Street, but was a haul walking to Mallory Square for our 3 kids. Very spacious room! We would stay here again.
