Overpriced ....... College kids control pool area

Our one night 03/11/12 at $282.49 total and you get location, not comfort. College students controlled pool & hot tub. Over 2 hours playing beer pong in the pool using 2 float lounges with table connected over them and spilling beer into pool while management notices but ignores situation. Nothing special about this hotel as far as looks go, just your typical old, U-shape design with a crammed pool within it. Room was typical (nice) Best Western. Keep in mind if you book here, this is a motel, not a hotel or resort. I only rate this a 2-1/2 star rating motel at best. Overall, you expect much more class from a Best Western. Only positive about this place: close to town (1 mile) & free parking

Fantasy Fest 2010

We went for Fantasy Fest 2010. The hotel was ok- clean. There is no fitness facility. Pool was nice- they had a decent hot tub too. The breakfast was ordinary- ends at 10am which is early. It is located near the southern tip of Duval so it is a slight walk to the action on Duval. The price was a bit high but it is fantasy fest so be expected to pay a bit more.

wonderful value

The hotel is a wonderful value for anyone staying in Key West who does not expect luxury. It is an older, well-maintained facility with the larger rooms of the older motels. The pool and hot tub are large and sparkling. The whole facility was immaculate and the staff were very helpful. One drawback was the limited space in the lobby where the breakfast was made available though there are sufficient tables outside that the overflow would not be inconvenienced in good weather.

It was alright...

The hotel was nice for the trip we planned. We wanted to spend as little as possible and celebrate a 21st birthday. The staff was extremely unfriendly though so don't plan on a ritz experience.

Best deal in Key West!

I stayed here last year too, so that should say something for the motel. The rooms are huge for the price and the location is just close enough to all of the fun, but far enough to escape the noise and congestion!

Good Value

Overall a good value in pretty good location. Bfast adequate; rooms & housekeeping very good. A few computers for email access in lobby was a nice unexpected touch. Nice pool w/jacuzzi and very personalable/friendly staff. Biggest "negative" was the outdated TV that had a universal remote w/no program guide.

Check out Camille's only a block up on Simonton St. Also check out El Siboney @ 900 Catherine st. (about 3 or 4 blocks from motel) for excellent local Cuban cuisine that is very affordable.

very nice stay in a perfect location

Very good Motel for the price. It was our fourth trip to Key West and we have never been in such an Motel!! Usually, Motels with very good location are old and noisy. Here, all was clean, nice from outside to inside, parking included and breakfast in the morning. The best point is the excellent location: walking distance to Duval street (excellent for shopping), to sunset and water activities and very close to nightlife.

Very decent hotel for the money

The Best Western is located on the quieter end of Duval street near the southernmost point. The trip to the "noisy" end is a little over a mile. Very walkable, but bicycles or taxi's are easy. Nice pool, clean.
