    We were impressed by the size of the room upon check-in. By comparison, other places we've stayed in Key West had much more cramped space. The free parking was an added bonus. It's at the quiet end of Key West, but still convenient to shopping...More

    Recently remodeled motel in great location. Quiet location, yet close to Duvall Street and 2 blocks from Southern Most whatever... Motel staff including Marcus couldn't be more accommodating. Good continental breakfast, clean rooms and clean pool. Nice retro feel, but large rooms and free parking....More

    Please accept my apologies. There is no excuse for the treatment you received and we will address it immediately. We do have blankets and our clerks should have handled the situation differently. Sorry.
