Outside: A small unheated pool, terrace at the roof, and a couple of chairs in the courtyard. And thats it. But. ½Mile to southernmost point. 1 Mile to Sunsetcelebration at Mallory Square. Quit in the evening. All in...

What a wonderful motel! When staying in key West you just don't know what kind of room you will get when you are on a budget. This place was sooo clean and comfortable! Beds were firm, pillows a little too soft. Staff people were very friendly and appreciated your stay with them. Definitely a prize!

We booked this hell hole room for 11 nights for $2,900. First they advertised Queen size beds but were really double size. The front door was made of cheap wood where anyone could break in. There was no key for the dead bolt making us weary of leaving anything there. We noticed bug flies and rusty moldy fixtures. The morning...

The first impression is fairly pleasant. It is a charming 60ish era motel in a quiet residential neighborhood, with a nice courtyard with green plants and a water fountain that adds a pleasant ambience. On the plus side: It is near the southernmost side of the Key so you'll find the waterfront just a couple of blocks away and the...

4 star prices for a 2 star motel. Grim shower, dirty floor, no coffee maker. The only good thing to say about this stay is that the fridge works. Would not recommend to my worst enemy. Foul-mouthed disturbance in the middle of the night did not help.

Great little motel. The staff are very helpful with where to go, what to do and printing boarding passes. If you are a coffee drinker, the Southern Most Deli & Grocery is the closest place to get your morning coffee. The rooms are not equipped with coffee makers.

Key West can be a very expensive place to stay. As others have mentioned, there's not much to this place but its fairly clean and in a good location. I didn't think it was worth the price we paid, but understand its location is great. It's a 10-15 minute walk from party central area on Duval Street. 5 ish minute...

This motel is in need of some work--no baseboard molding in the room, for example--yet it is clean, the people who work there are very accommodating and the location is great. I was traveling with my adult son so it was great to have a two bedroom "suite". There is nothing fancy about this place, no food, no coffee, but...

We read the reviews, staying at a 2 star hotel with our daughter was not something we were looking forward to, but for half the price of other hotels in Key West, we gave it a shot and were pleasantly surprised. This a no frills hotel, about a 10-15 minute walk from party central on Duval Street. We had a...

As others have commented, there's not much to this place but it is a fair price, clean and a good location. Considering you're in Key West, you really don't spend much time in the room. Beds were comfy and shower was adequate. No complaints here!
