This is a little ...

This is a little gem in the rough. This motel is on the south side of the island. It is really close to the most southern point. The motel is within a 25 to 30 minutes of North Duvall Street. The motel was a great experience. They have definitely updated the motel. The rooms come with fridge and a microwave. I really enjoyed the rooms. They also have 2 pools and gave us continental breakfast. The staff was nice. There are plenty of places to go eat, get ice cream and a little grocery store across the street.

Motel très bien situé au sein de Key West. On regrette cependant la vétusté de certaines chambres malgré des prix très élevés (porte de salle de bain qui ferme pas, évier qui ne fonctionne pas). Bien pour une étape, sans plus. La piscine est cependant un vrai plus

The two men I dealt with were great but the woman that was working was rude.

It’s definitely a motel, ...

It’s definitely a motel, but an overpriced one (prices varied from over $300 down to high $200s depending upon the day). We stayed for 3 nights, and that was plenty. There are (I believe) 71 rooms, but only one medium-sized and one very small, pool for all 71 rooms. There was a group of obnoxious, drunk people staying in rooms closest to the larger pool, and all they did was drink in the pool most of the day (even though there are signs saying no liquor, but no enforcement). There were 8-10 of them at one time, and that made it very uncomfortable for any other guests to go in. The property also allows smoking in outside areas, and in this day and age, most places require guests to go off property to smoke. Not pleasant at all. The pools were good for the rooms near them, but there were about 25 rooms facing South St with no easy pool access. You had to walk out of the property, along, the street, and back into the property to access the larger of the 2 pools (this one is unheated, and in 91F, the most desirable). The rooms: very small and dated; no counter or shelf space whatsoever in the small bathroom; no hooks in bathroom to hang anything!; shower was nice and big, but low water pressure; no closet space at all (a rack hanging in the middle of the wall); and TV was a small monitor (terrible to watch a hockey game on! players were like ants!). Very small counter with a microwave and bar fridge below, but looks like there once was a bar sink there (very much needed!). Worst thing was no shelf or counter space in the bathroom. Not enough room for your toothbrush and toothpaste on the sink! Nice additions to staying there: parking is included (it’s expensive in Key West!); a very continental breakfast with pre-packaged muffins, instant oatmeal, coffee, juice, yogurt, and oranges; guest passes available for South Beach where you get a towel and a chair included (an umbrella is an extra $12); bike rentals are available ($20/day). FYI, Don’t stay in one of the rooms close to Simonton St as the live music is right there at the bar, and is very loud! The staff at the front desk were very nice and helpful, but unfortunately didn’t make up for the negatives. This motel is in a great location, but really needs upgrades and you’re better off paying an extra $70/night at one of the nicer places nearby.

This motel is well ...

This motel is well located. They have a bar on site and a convenience store is across the street which also serves Cuban food and coffee. You are walking distance from a beach area, Southern Most Point, Duval Street, and a bus stop running the Duval Loop. You can also rent bikes on site and get scooters about a half block away. The accomodations are basic. It's clean but old. By Key West standards you're getting your money's worth. I'd stay again.
