Key West Bayside Inn & Suites
Ranked #49 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Recommended by the Key West Visitors Center. The room was very clean but needs to be updated. Although the suite was spacious, the bathroom tile needs some TLC and the curtains were shabby. Just a little touch here and there would fix it up. The free breakfast area was a joke. There was food and drink but not enough seating available. We grabbed a drink & Danish and took them back to the room. (A little inconvenient). We would probably stay here again.

We booked a room at the Bayside for one night because most other places in town were booked solid and we were happy to take what we got thinking we wouldnt be spending much time in the room in KW. We were a bit apprehensive upon reading the reviews on TA though and wondering if we'd got ourselves into a motel 9?

Fortunately, the place turned out to be just fine.. Actually, I'd say it was better than just fine! We were greeted late at night (3a arrival due to flight delays), by a very friendly and helpful gentleman who promptly gave us our keys along w the nec info for the internet etc. He was also expecting us which felt nice..

The room had a lovely view of the bay, was very spacious, comfortable and clean! No complaints here at all and oh, the free parking was great too!

In an expensive resort area the Bayside Inn and Suites was a welcome respite. While still moderately expensive the Bayside manages to be a bargain when compared to others hotels in the area. We enjoyed a lovely King sized bed in a separate bedroom with two balconies and a full kitchen as well as a lovely living room. There also was a nice breakfast eating area as well as a small dining area. The suite was immaculately kept with ample space for the two of us.
The large pool was fabulous with plenty of chaise lounges and a hot tub. The hot tub never really got HOT but was pleasantly warm and soothing. The nightly rate included a continental breakfast which was fine for our needs.
We also found the front desk staff extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Ample parking and a beautiful view of the bay made this a very good place to base your Key West visit.

Room Tip: Always ask for a suite as the regular rooms are quite small in comparison and definitely worth the e...

When we checked in we were welcomed to the hotel and our room was ready. We got some great recommendations for dinner and some things to do.Our suite was one bedroom with a king bed and it was very nice. It's not modern, and the hotel does need to update and do some repairs, but the price compared to other hotels was reasonable and we knew there would be some things that would not be perfect. Even with the need for new furniture and drapes the room was SPOTLESS, I was so impressed. I usually by cleaning supplies at a local grocery store when I travel but there was no need. The service from the cleaning ladies everyday was great.Overall we enjoyed everything.

Room Tip: When you book, choose a suite and just pay the extra. We got a look at the standard rooms and they a...

Rooms look nothing like the picture. Cement walls very tiny room, smelled like someone died in room and they were trying to cover up the smell. It was so bad that I vomited from the smell. Front desk was no help at all. We demanded our money back. Could not and did not stay it was so bad.

Room Tip: Ask friends, stay at a hotel that is a chain, a well known hotel and you know what their standards a...

We've stayed here several times in the past when it was a Travel Lodge Suites property.
It's the same place and nothing has changed! Prices have escalated a bit.
The property is need of some serious updating and attention to cleaning the property. The rooms are clean, but it's falling apart inside and out.
In 4 years, the elevator windows which face the outside have NEVER been cleaned,,, really
I'm wondering if the new ownership is contemplating either a re-sale or a complete renovation in the near future? There are several "chain" hotels nearby that have been gutted and being rebuilt or totally revamped.
We met a couple who just arrived and checked in, they were astonished that the pictures on the web site and the condition of the rooms were so misrepresented.
This will be our last stay until they remodel or sell.

Room Tip: The suites facing the water on the third floor have a great view.

This facility is "vintage," and everything that goes with it.

This is not the nicest hotel in Key West, nor is it the most convenient. But it is considerably less expensive than average, the rooms are clean, the parking and Internet are free, and the front desk is helpful. The breakfast is decent, too. But it's seen better days, and probably hasn't been updated since the 50's or 60's. The veneer on the table in our room was curling up at the edges, but we found it more amusing than annoying. The room was very small, but the two of us managed just fine. The valve on the shower required a phone call to the front desk to understand how it worked, but was fine to manipulate once explained.

I'd stay here again because it was pleasant enough, and took a very small part of our travel budget, leaving lots left for all the things we wanted to do in Key West. If we had wanted to spend a great deal of time at the hotel as a base for our vacation, however, it wouldn't have been adequate.
