Havana Cabana Key West

Reviewed 20 March 2008

We stayed two nights at this overpriced hotel! It looks just like a dirty motel with filthy rugs and roaches! The staff was rude and not very helpful! You can stay at lovely B&B in old town that is actually cheaper than this dump! Please stay away!

When I travel, I really prefer to stay in the heart of the action, but Key West hotels have gotten so unbelievably expensive. Since we would have our own car, we decided to try the Inn at Key West on North Roosevelt Blvd. We could not have made a better choice!

The hotel is obviously an older hotel, but the owners have made some incredible upgrades. The king room contains a king bed, a sofa bed, a small refrigerator and microwave and a larger-than-usual bathroom. The decor is absolutely beautiful and the room very clean. Our only complaint was the wake-up call from the roosters that roam the island, but even that was charming.

The staff were friendly and accommodating. The pool and bar area were lush and beautiful, even though we didn't go in the pool (too cold). Also, there is an IHOP right next door for breakfast.

Publix and KMart are nearby and it was a quick drive to Mallory Square and Duval Street.

I would definitely recommend the Inn at Key West!

My wife and I enjoyed this hotel immensely. We had one of the recently renovated Superior Kings on the lower level. I should qualify, in case you have a phobia against lower levels, that the entrance to these first level rooms is only accessible from a Tommy Bahama decorated interior hallway that is nicer than any Hilton, Hyatt or Marriott that we have stayed in. The room also has a somewhat private and enclosed patio with a table and two chairs, weather permitting of course. As everyone else has already testified, the pool area, wonderfully landscaped grounds, hot tub, and Tiki Bar was/is the best that the island has to offer, certainly better than any of the others that we saw during the week we spent there, and we visited most of them. And a perk from having the island's largest pool with only 105 rooms, is that there is actually enough lounge chairs to accomodate everyone there. Imagine that!!! That's a first for us traveling in peak season.

I personally did not consider the location of the Inn (being 3 miles away from downtown) an issue, as it was offset by the peace and quiet, free and easy parking, and convenient location to groceries, liquor stores, and restaurants. Besides, the elevation of Key West only varies by a couple of feet, so bike riding gets you anywhere you want to go without breaking much of a sweat.... well... you know....weather permitting.

The Superior King room, though a tad small, was also decorated better than any Hilton, Hyatt or Marriott. In addition to all those Tommy Bahama caribbean fixtures, there were all those other little amenities such as big towels, a choice of two showerheads, a makeup mirror, a small refrigerator, a huge plasma wall mounted TV, and a pull out sofa bed. In short...the room is just decorated beautifully with all the extras. On the downside, Service and friendliness was just so- so, and maybe this is the one area that does not live up to some of the larger snob chains I mentioned. But you'll keep more cash in your wallet here. Bottom line...after 5 days at the Inn at Key West, and 3 days at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Hilton, it's not even close as to where I would return. But a word of caution folks....I understand the Superior Kings are significantly better than the other rooms, so ask for one of the renovated rooms. We'll be going back next year to the Inn at Key West, and we have never repeated the same hotel before...ever. Here we will.

This hotel is like a lot of things -- it really depends on what you want and what you like. If you want to be by the action on Duval St., this is not the place for you. If you want to be able to go to Duval St. and then leave it behind, this is the place. We traveled with our 2 kids, aged 8 and 9, which is why we wanted to be able to get away from Duval, and they loved the pool. There's a cool tiki bar, the rooms were clean and nice, there's breakfast and lunch at the hotel and a great-looking lobby. The main attraction is the pool, it's beautiful and makes you feel you are at the beach. Be aware that this side of the island doesn't have the great restaurants you'll find near Duval/Malory Square. Lastly, the room location makes a big difference; our first room was off the parking lot and we asked to change to a room near the pool, and then we really felt like we were on vacation. I am sure we'll be back.

I will admit that I was slightly disappointed when I first drove up to the Inn at Key West - it looked like another motel on the side of the road - but I was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The room was terrific (quiet and clean), the bathroom spacious and modern, and the pool is amazing. The Inn turned out to be the best hotel that my wife and I stayed on our trip, and one of the highlights of our Key West leg. I wish the temperature control was a little more modern (no thermostat, just a high/low AC unit), but otherwise no complaints.

We enjoyed a great 3 days at the Inn, except for being there when they broke an all-time record low temperature for Key West - 45 degrees! Nice pool and very friendly staff. Very good concierge service.

Arriving from Fort Laudedale for a few days of a family vacation and having never been to Key West we were greeted; although not overly friendly, at what appeared to be a nice hotel. This is where the good ends. Several trips from our room, overlooking a construction site and parking lot, back to the front desk because our room cards never worked was enough of a bother, but the very early morning hammering from construction and the mid morning crowing of roosters was the limit. No sleep and no apologies, not even an I'm sorry from the unfriendly staff was enough for my family to end our trip early and leave. I agree with a previous reviewer that this is nothing more than a roadside motel with resort prices. Gulf view across a very busy highway is hardly an attraction. There are other accomodations closer to town that are far more charming, friendly and accomodating than this joint.
This reviewer will definitely be back in the amazing Keys but not at this overrated establishment.!
