Banana Bay Resort - Key West
Ranked #51 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Very pleasent room and living room with a lot of space and nicely decorated.
Kitchenet is equipped to have a meal dor 4 people and there is a table available for this purpose.
Car parking available.
Hotel has the possibility of renting bikes which is the best means to go to central Key West (10-15minutes away by bike).
Breakfast is not awsome but has all one needs (coffee, milk and cereals, bagels, madeleines and waffers).
Wi-fi services however are only available in the room and coming from outside of the US we really felt this was a limitation.

Room Tip: The rooms by the pool are better located and sunny in the morning!

My wife and I stayed on the 2nd floor on a Friday and Saturday night and about 4am the damn rooster starts crowing and crowing. It sounded like he was under our window. Also combined with the hard mattress it was impossible to get a good night sleep. I think it's A good idea to relocate that rooster cause I will never stay there again and suggest you not either unless you sleep during the day and stay up all night.

Room Tip: Call ahead to see if they have a rooster problem

We should have called and checked but when a website says internet and tiki bar you travel accordingly. Internet was only available in the lobby and the breakfast room. Tiki bar was closed. Our floor in the room left our feet black (yucky).
On a positive note the bed and pillows we're comfy ; staff nice and friendly.
This motel needs some TLC ; tv was from the 80s and the bathrooms were old... But clean...
Pool area was lovely... Please note that while you can sit near the water there isn't any beach.
We stayed on a friends recommendation that it was a value priced , but I would not recommend until the rooms are updated for the price.

Booking included New Year's Eve, quite a busy time in KW. The price for the room was reasonable during that time. Check-in wasn't available until 3 pm but they allowed us to store our luggage in the back room in the meantime. We were given the first floor as requested. It is above ground level with either steps or ramp as an option. Exterior maintenance and landscaping very good. Pet friendly, no children allowed under 16 years of age. The pool area was spotless and good size. The hot tub was set to perfect temp. If there were limiting hours, we were not aware of them.

The room was quite spacious with 2 double beds with side tables, a large table and comfortable chair, large comfortable sitting chair, padded bench, and console with closets on either side, 3 large drawers underneath, and TV with sufficient channels available. A small frig and microwave worked fine. The "kitchen" prep area was spacious.

One bed had a slight slant to the middle but was comfortable. Multiple pillows were thick and firm. The air conditioner worked but didn't cool the room as much as we desired set at 60 degrees, felt more like 70 and a bit stuffy at night. The balcony was spacious with a table and 2 chairs. The sliding door was difficult to close. The draperies kept out the light when desired.

The bathroom had peeling paint, the water temp in the sink couldn't be changed. There was plenty of hot water in the shower but the temp wasn't consistent after setting. The towels were good absorbent quality and plentiful. Daily cleaning was as expected or better according to our schedule which was accommodated.

The breakfast area was large and comfortable with indoor and outdoor seating on the water. The only proteins were white milk and peanut butter but was adequate for a continental breakfast. It was open from 8-10 am and well stocked. It included a variety of bagels, fresh pastries, ready to make waffles, oatmeal, apples, cereal. Regular, decaf coffee, herbal tea, juice, and hot chocolate were available.

It's located near major grocery chains, pharmacies, and a variety of restaurants for easy walking access and even easier biking access.

My only disappointment was having WiFi access only in the front office and breakfast area. I used my phone as a hotspot.

We'd stay here again and recommend it. Would have given it 4 stars if WiFi was available thruout the property.

We loved our room and the complimentary bathroom items.We had a pretty nice view,of course we were hoping for a water view. The most disappointing thing was the continental breakfast.
It was from 8-10 and we got there at 9:00 and all the waffle batter and syrup was gone and no supervisor or anyone to contact. then while were eating, three women are talking very loudly and swearing . Just being offensive. Again no employee around to do something about it.Our nice morning didn't start out to nice.

Room Tip: ask what view you have and maybe ask if the air conditioner is on the patio where you sit

We have stayed at this property for 6 years in a row so we know what to expect. It's very old, with peeling wallpaper in the bathroom and peeling laminate cabinets, but the cleaning staff does a great job. We stay here for many reasons. The little waterfront area is a quiet oasis to lounge and relax. The pool and hot tub are wonderful, no children are allowed and the price is more "affordable" than most places in Key West. Our only complaint is that the two double beds we had in 104 had the worst mattresses ever. Sagging, lumpy, really uncomfortable and so noisy we kept waking up when someone rolled over or got out of bed and we are not large people. Next year I will call and if the mattresses have not been replaced I will book elsewhere and will be very sad because we love it here.

Ridiculous prices per night for a very low quality hotel. Folks working there were nice. The owner of this hotel needs to spend some money and fix the basic things and power wash etc. I am surprised they are not fined for some of the obvious things that need to be fixed. Plaster, paint, seal, clean. REALLY....never again for me

Room Tip: go somewhere else
