Santa Maria Suites Resort July 2010

This hotel is one block off of the "quiet" end of Duval Street. If you want to go to the West end, it is a bit far to walk, but within easy bicycling range. We rented an electric vehicle right accross the street at A&M Rentals, which was recommende by the hotel. It was a perfect fit for the week. The suite had a very nicely equipped kitchen and everything was flawlessly clean. The room was well maintained as was the hotel in general, pool, and grounds. What really made this a great stay was the hotel staff. Friendly, helpful, and fun to be around. [...] and [...] were great and suggested placed to visit and even made reservations for us. What great people! If I were going back tomorrow, I would stay at this hotel.

Parking is at a premium in Key West. Many attractions are witning walking distance or easily accessible by bicycle. Bikes, scooters, and electric vehicles are rented by numerous places. So consider if you need/want a car. If you do rent a car, I would suggest a smaller one that is easy to manuver.

Free parking, free beach chairs, free smoothies, free waters in hotel room & pool, free Muffins, nice towels, 3 42 inch flat panels, awesome showers with inputs for ipod, camera's etc. So many details were thought about. a kitchen to die for. 3 balconies. Just awesome!

Outstanding resort, perfect location.

We went here for our ten year anniversary. The location was perfect the hotel more than expected. The beach was a walk away. Probably one of our favorite vacation spots. Defiently will be back to both the city and this resort.

Sleek, Modern Beach Get-Away

We were very happy with the Santa Maria. Very beautiful place to stay. The overall "room" was large (condo setup), however the bedroom was pretty small. Great location and very friendly and helpful staff. We would stay there, again!

Rent a bike while in Key West - the hotel has coupons for a discount. You can explore the island on a bicycle - no need to rent a car.

Contemporary Luxury

Every time we walked through the lobby we were greeted by courteous staff. The rooms were superbly decorated and clean (although the cleaning ladies didn't replenish our washcloths after the first night, strangely). The pool is great and the location is conveniently located next to an amazing sushi joint. If you have a room on the street it's a little noisy...but it's Key West afterall and there's not THAT much traffic. If it weren't for a little street noise (motorcycles at night, etc.) I would've given it 5 stars. Oh, and it would be great to have a minibar in the room in case of a late night snack.

Excellent place to stay in Key West

Great rooms overlooking beautiful pool. The resort is located off of the quieter end of Duval Street. This made for a nice peaceful and quiet getaway. The bars and nightlife are only a short walk away. The staff is very helpful and scheduled trips for us out on the ocean. The restaurant located in the hotel is amazing.
