Right in the heart of key west. But loud music is played late into the night. And early morning street cleaning and deliveries wake you up early. The room definitely needed updates Sink was falling off the wall and shower stall was small and ancient. Beds were just okay.

This property is all about location location location. It is right around the corner from Hog's breath and across the street from Sloppy Joes. It is above a cuban restaurant that has great food and very active, but room was still quiet. Window AC unit worked efficiently and worked as white noise. Check in procedure was quick and very easy. Door lock was a code so I didn't have to worry about a key. Balcony was only big enough to sit on. Bed was comfortable and kitchenette was nice. Shower was extremely small and if you dropped the soap, your butt was gonna be hanging out for sure when you bent over to pick it up. Room needs some TLC but you can't beat the location!!

Bare bones property, on Duval St so very close to everything. But be aware this is a bare bones room.

Great Cuban restaurant right there. Should tidy up the upper deck and rain gutters falling down. Iguana paid a welcome visit!

Couldn't check into room until after 4. Room did not have standard items like shampoo, tissues, etc.

Can't beat the location. Place was clean and comfortable.

This hotel is not for everyone. It is very close to the action. You can hear the live music from the Hogs Breath Saloon as you fall asleep. That being said, we loved the quirkiness of it. You have to unlock a gate and walk through a restaurant to get to your room. The room is a nice size, with a small kitchenette with a sink, coffee pot, refrigerator, and microwave. No coffee, but a pot, so bring your own. The shower was tiny and the water pressure was poor, but it worked. It was right on Duval St so we could walk to everything. We were only in our room long enough to sleep, so it was perfect, but it does need some updating.

We stayed there for a week. We went with our adult daughters. The room was separated with a dividing wall for privacy. It was spacious and comfy. Housekeeping was so attentive she came everyday to refresh towels and make sure we had everything we needed. She even gave us information to the location to a laundry facility. We would stay here again.

The gentleman I talked to on the phone was very short with me and rude. I will never go to this hotel. I will never book this hotel again.

updates are coming to the 150 year old blgd. lol, so far all sinks are on attached as they should be. the website clearly states that the noise level is medium but the fun level is high. sorry that you seemed to have neither !!!
