We really enjoyed our stay here. Stoned Crab was great. Shuttle downtown made travel easy. Will definitely come back.

Extremely satisfied with the resort!!! the shuttle buss is a great add on !

Staff was friendly bathroom outdated and not as clean as I like

Shark feeding was fun. Room was small, congested rest room. Nice water view on the backside. They have hammocks which we loved. Overall not so bad.

Rooms have a musty smell, beds have no comforters just two sheets and a light blanket. If you need ice you have to go to the restaurant and the continental breakfast includes cold premade waffles, boiled eggs and questionable rolled meats and cheeses. Best part was the Staff who were very friendly.

Quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to my mortal enemy.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Ibis. Everything about the resort was good enough. I liked the amenities. Staff was nice. Room was ok, but nothing special. I do love how beautiful all the plants & trees are in the property.

A little dated but got the job done. AC didn’t work to well but was fine for one night

This was a great place to stay. They offered a shuttle bus that takes you to and from the hot spots around Key West. The bus left every hour on the hour. The staff was friendly. There were live animals, a fish market and a cute little restaurant. Don't plan on swimming along the shore line here though, it's not for swimming in the ocean. The jet ski tour was great. The rooms were adequate, especially for people who aren't going to spend much time in the room. The pool area was great. The only downfall was the limited food and beverages available at the Stoned Crab after 10pm (which is when the last shuttle runs). Other than that, this was an excellent place to stay in Key West.

Place was cheaper for a reason. While they did offer a pretty much one stop resort style, the staff wasnt very friendly or happy to be there. They didnt follow thru with calling me to let me know when my room was ready for early check in as they said they would, and when we did check in it was like i was bothering them. This was our first time to stay there so i wasnt aure what to expect fornthe price. Pool area was nice. It the beach area was much smaller than the pictures made it look and basically an unusable beach. So nuch plant life that swimming would not have been enjoyable. Rooms were ok. Our room hadnt been updated in a while and the shower was pretty scary to look at. But we slept good and were only there for one night before moving on. There are much nicer places, but not many at this price point. I would have just liked to see some happy employee interactions and a better breakfast option. Toasters didnt heat things up at all andd the offerings were slim and cold food only. No eggs, only bagels and toast and cold waffles.

I like the roosters and birds around the property. Small man made beach area. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean but small and so was the shower. Great place for looking for a bargain and just need a place to go to bed.

calling it a beachfront resort is a bit deceiving.. while they have made some of the rooms open out to a sandy “ beach” area.. there is no actual water that you can go in ..but the pool area was nice.. the restaurant on site was just “ok”

This felt like i would have imagined "old florida" was like.. i could not have imagined it being any nicer..staff was great, night kayaking, jet ski even scooters on site.. if you want a new snoooty place its not for you. For us it was perfect!!!

Great Amenities!

Do not expect to sleep in… the garbage service came every day at 5:30 am… to dump the dumpsters. There are no microwaves in your room . They need to install anti slip stripes on the stairs as I fell down. The room was very cute. The paintings and walls were sweet. The tortoise enclosure was fun and the people that worked there were very nice and friendly. It was an ok property and yes Key West is expensive but I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for the value.

First the positive: room was clean and also the outside areas were well maintained, staff ALL friendly, free parking, many restaurants nearby and a nice pool. They had a convenient shuttle and fairly nice "beach" area. Not so positive:old old property, bathroom needed work and shower was like a phone booth. Poor water pressure and blinds on the outside door in the bathroom were too narrow and need to be wider so there was not any privacy from the parking area. I had to hang a long scarf to block people from seeing into the bathroom at night. Outside paint was peeling and some boards looked rotted. Our room was near the road and it was VERY noisy. TV's didn't ever work so no football game on Sun nite. Every time we called about the TV we were given a different excuse. For what we had to pay per night.....we Won't stay here again.

The room was clean and employees are friendly! The only complaint is that there was no microwave in the room. My husband requested one, someone at the front desk said we’d get one and it has yet to arrive. Other than that, no complaints!

A quirky old Florida vibe. Liked the pool, beach area and various hammocks. Liked the animals. Large cleaning staff worked hard on keeping grounds clean. The room was very small. Bathroom had been updated but shower was old and nasty. A bus to offer trips to downtown was very helpful. Only complaint is the small room and the nasty small shower.

Thanks for the feedback. We know some guests are not used to the wall AC units, but we do service and change out dated ones often.
