“Too far to walk but bed was ok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

at the last minut at the last minute and got a suite for the regular price. The room was a decent size  and the grounds were cool. Pool allows naked swimming if you want. They have a hot tub and seats on the bay that you can enjoy. Lots of road construction right now. Free breakfast was good enough. You will have to taxi or drive downtown. The fridge was nice to keep beer. More like a motel but it was ok to sleep in.

Beware - we were so horrified by Banana Bay in Key West that we couldn't stay there (and we are not picky people) and are now fighting to try to get our money back from the third party online booking site. When we saw the room, we immediately contacted the front desk that we would be leaving, then spent the next hour on hold for the online booking site, another half hour talking with them, then left. We found another hotel on our own, right on Duval and for only $30 more. Banana Bay is telling the online booking web site that we stayed the entire night, so we are having a big dispute to get a refund. We are not picky people but this place has some really really bad rooms. The front desk person told us that there are nicer rooms but they were all booked. So, don't take a chance and risk not getting your money back - avoid Banana Bay at all costs!!!

Room Tip: Do not book with Banana Bay!

My husband and I have been staying at Banana Bay for over 15 years mostly because we can bring one of our dogs with us. I haven't been there in about 18 months, and was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of Banana Bay. It is looking very clean and "fixed up" - you can tell the staff is doing a great job on the overall maintenance of the resort. I'd even say it's looking the best it has in over 5 years. The rooms are very fresh smelling and the beds have been improved, including the linens and lamps, etc. The bathrooms could use a update, but everything still worked just fine. I would highly recommend Banana Bay if you want to stay away from "old town" and get a good value for your money. There is major construction on the road out front, but that was no big deal.

Room Tip: We always use a wheelchair accessible room (107 or 108). The view from all the rooms is very pleasa...

After reading other reviews we had our doubts but were pleasantly surprised. The worst part was the rainy weather. Upon checking in they had us in a double room ( I had called 2 weeks prior to confirm king room) Perry at the front desk immediately resolved the situation and put us in a room on the end with a view of the water and pool. Yes it could definitely use some TLC but for one of the only places that allows pets it was great. The pool was awesome and so was the beach front. Although you can't really swim there they had rocking chairs just to enjoy the view. I was even able to use my paddle board right there. The breakfast was minimal with bagels, muffins, cereal and waffles. We brought our bikes and it was about a 10 min ride to duval and downtown. Overall a great place that allows pets, has huge rooms, friendly staff and great location.

Room Tip: Rm 217 on the end has a pool and water view.

Boyfriend booked this place 1 week in advance, then when we arrived in town, they had no record of our reservations and NO rooms available! Grounds looked shabby and under some construction. Waterways looked muddy. Location was far from town. All of this was a blessing in disguise for us because we ended up staying at the most beautiful place in town called the Tranquilty Guest House. Don't waste your time or money here.

It looks as if this hotel is being renovated. The No vacancy sign goes up daily by noon but there is no way all rooms are occupied. The pool and hot tub are nice. The Tiki Bar died with Hemmingway and the place looks nice until you look at details. That being said we didn't come here for an opulent room we chose based upon price. Duvall street is but a cab ride away. I do believe this location will become better over time.

Banana Bay in Key West has the absolute reality to website comparison. This property looks NOTHING like the website, at all, no really, nothing. The website looks so nice clean modern, but the reality is that Banana Bay in Key West is tired. The rooms, at least ours, was not well maintained. We had holes in the walls, several in the bathroom. It looked like it was in the middle of a renovation. Maybe the other rooms were in better condition?? What we had was clean, but old. The fixtures were very old, needs paint in most places. The sink vanity had come off of the wall, nothing sealed up. I was there with my son on a fishing trip so we dealt with it. If I had been with my wife I would have requested a refund and moved somewhere else.
