I booked this hotel to visit my huband who is stationed in Key West. He told me it was basic but close to his location and I was ok with basic but I upgraded to a suite for $30 more just to make it a little more special when he had leave. What they don't tell you is that when you book you may be at one of three different locations, one not even located on Key West but on Boca Chica the island before Key West 8 miles away. So when I checked into Fly Navy they gave me very vague instructions on how to get to my suite. Well once I started driving and realized how far I would be I called back and asked if I could just book a regular room at the Fly Navy so that I would still be on the island. They were very pleasant and told me to go ahead and come back. So I came back and checked into a queen room on the 3rd floor. The front desk clerks were all very nice and even though I was a little early (2pm) for check in they let me go to my room. I brought my luggage to my room and immediately could hear the baby crying 4 doors down from my room and doors up and down the hall slamming shut. The walls here are paper thin and those awful hotel doors that slam shut everytime (who invented these???). I texted my husband to please bring earplugs with him.
Since I had a while to wait until my husband was released for the weekend I decided to take a shower and get ready for dinner that night. I attempted to turn on the faucet but nothing came out. I then tried the shower and the same. I figured maybe someone had shut the water off so I tried both valves under the sink with no success. I called downstairs and asked if I needed to do anything special to get the water on and they said they were just finishing working on the plumbing and to give it some time. So I waited until 3pm and tried again this time with success. But the water was coming out brown and with a lot of silt and muck settling in the sink and tub surface. I decided to let it run for a while to clean the pipes. After doing this intermittently for an hour (I hate to waste water) there was still no change and I was starting to panic. I asked the front desk what to do and they told me to let it run. I again waited until 5pm with no change in water clarity and by this time I had called around to find another place to stay in case this did not change. Welp, you guessed it. Nothing changed and I knew I had to leave before the screaming baby down the hall and the dirty water ruined my weekend with my hubby. The front desk was kind enough to offer me another room but I was already as cranky as the hall baby so I told them no thank you and they refunded me my money.
The service from the front desk was very pleasant and I was treated very kindly however, I think I would save my money and splurge on the B&B in the heart of Key West instead.
