Horrible!

Don't stay here. It will filled with bug excrement and housekeeping only made the bed the next day, they did not clean the bathroom at all. No lights in the bedroom worked, no pillowcases on the extra pillows, window air conditioners were too loud to leave on at night and did not cool the room anyway. The pool is the size of a hot tub. Is that what I paid 'resort fees' for? If they would have given me any of my money back I would have happily slept at a different hotel and put Yellowtail Inn behind me. Instead they ended up charging me extra for the 'free upgrade' they gave me when they moved me to a less bug-infested room. I'm not sure why any hotel booking website would list this hotel.

STAY AWAY - Bugs in Bed/RENOVATION REQUIRED

Location has a beautiful view BUT THAT IS AFTER YOU IGNORE that the place needs renovating NOT simple "routine" MAINTENANCE. When you see the property you can see the place needs a MAJOR overhaul. They don't even do the easy COSMETIC things/fixes like blinds or new doors. ALSO IGNORE BUGS IN YOUR BEDS - even though the room "looked" clean!!!! Luckily I hadn't taken out sheets that I purchased earlier that week out of my car! Otherwise we would have slept in our car for our overbite stay. We have stayed in other key west cottages so we understand "key west charm." Heck we live in Florida so we know about ROUTINE bug maintenance (spraying). However BUGS in beds draws the line = unsanitary conditions that make you physically ill. The next morning I tried talking to the woman at the front desk regarding our night was with the bugs - she wasn't surprised - I asked if something could be taken off our bill she said probably not and then went on to say she only works on the weekends = she doesn't have the authority. I sent an email regarding our bed bugs even with pictures showing my new sheets on their beds. I have yet to get a response. Next step is to see if my credit card company can help with some type of "bug" credit. PIECE OF ADVICE - if you think this is us being "disgruntled." Stop by and SEE THE PLACE BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR ROOM as they EASILY TAKE YOUR MONEY but doing the right thing crediting back for unsanitary conditions they are not so "gracious." P.s. Stay clear from their next door property casa del sol had a smelly garbage container in its driveway - seems permanent (- we didn't see rooms), if they can't move the container then do they really care for their clientele?

Save your time & $$-book elsewhere!

We checked into our room, which was to be 'ocean view', it had an AWESOME view of the parking lot. Once inside the room we noticed all the bug droppings on the counter,stove, fridge, cupboards. We immediately returned to the front desk and were given an "upgraded room". It was closer to the beach (and i'm using that term loosely), but it also had bug droppings & the added bonus of mold in the shower. We returned to the front desk where we were refused a refund (full or partial). We left and spent LESS for a CLEAN and BUGFREE stay at another Inn. Check the reviews on other sites & heed the warnings!

gross and extremely over priced.

I went for new years entering the year 2013. We did not stay around the are, my fiancee and I drove to the end of the keys. The towels were shred, stained and had previous used grass spike attached to it. The shower floor tiles were cracked, so as you are in shower you feel the crack tiles move as you step. It looked dirty. The bed cover were so thin over used that didn't keep warm. The bed sheets felt dirty and had some stains along with the pillow case. the mattress was horrible. The bathroom and room were so small that it was difficult to walk and no room to set up personal belongings. As we checked in the lady upfront told us check in was at 4pm. When our reservation said 3pm. The beach area is best for fishing. Nothing special to enjoy.

This hotel needs a good cleaning!

The Yellowtail Inn is in a good location with a small beach and dock. There were tables but no chairs in the beach area to sit on. We rented an efficiency which was adequate in size. The shower in our room was covered in mold when we arrived. The staff at the front desk was polite and sent housekeeping to correct the problem. The next day when we went to put something in the freezer we found a layer of ice covering the bottom with a strong smell of fish. It smelled so bad we were unable to use it. The cleanliness of this hotel is unacceptable and we would not stay there again.

Will not go back ever!!!!

For a 2 days stay it is ok. The room was fine and the housekeeping lady was the best sociable person in this place. I feel bad for her because she is the only one who knows how to deal with customers. The front desk people are very rude and disrespectful, they do not have education at all, and once you check out, they even call the police to take you out of the hotel grounds. Will not recommend this hotel to anybody.
