Rooms were spacious. Everything available on site and within walking distance

I loved everything about this hotel. The view was beautiful and room was very spacious. They did a great job with cleaning and girls at the front desk are wonderful.

The property is great! Our room was great and had a view of the lake. Only thing is there wasn't any coffee in the room but there is free breakfast so I did get my coffee.

our room was over a bar that the.motel rents too. loud music friday and saturday night until 230 in the morning ..when i said something to the staff they said oh well there was nothing they could do about it ..very rude

Great view of the lake. Large, comfortable room. Friendly staff. Elevator was not working for 6 hours.

The Hotel was quiet and comfortable. The employees were considerate and helpful.

We really loved the rooms at Key West. They were very spacious with a wonderful view of the lake from the balcony. It was nice having a fridge and microwave in the room and the bathroom was huge. The only disappointment was the free breakfast. It was at a restaurant at the property. The only choices were biscuits and gravy and scrambled eggs with sausage. It was a serve yourself breakfast and the restaurant did not require masks and during COVID, this did not feel comfortable.

Great location, loved the pillows had a good night sleep!

The staff was friendly, the room was clean and very roomy, excellent location within walking distance of several restaurants. We enjoyed the pool and the walk along the lake . We will be back

Overall it was ok! We only stayed one night. There is no bar or restaurant as orbits states there is. Whole building smelt musty. Our air conditioner did not work.

We enjoyed the pool and balcony view overlooking Lake Dora.

The clerk who checked us in on Friday was excellent. On Saturday and Sunday the staff seemed indifferent at best. Our room was not cleaned at all. The housekeeper left new towels but that was the extent of cleaning. When I asked about it I was told they could bring me clean sheets but not a clean comforter and I had to change them myself. The view of the lake was very nice and the breakfast at a local restaurant 1 block away was excellent.

Three Senior Sisters in a King/Queen might seem cramped. Not at the Key West Resort. The room was very spacious with a large balcony, large accessible bathroom and large walk-in closet with dresser in it. The view was awesome of pool and Lake Dora. Great space on rooftop. The Train 🚂 and Seaplane were fun to watch. Boats with Trump flags! Bonus! Complimentary Breakfast was very nice and very good at near-by diner and dinner at Tiki West was scrumptious. Covid-19 was still very obvious. Only a handful of guests. Very quiet and relaxing.

The location is excellent and convenient to many activities. Rooms have tons of space.

When we first arrived we were given the wrong rooms but Steven quickly rectified the situation for us and we ended up in a beautiful suite. There were some minor issues with the kitchen not being fully equipped but once we brought this to the attention of the owner, he sent Denise to assist us. Everything we needed for the kitchen was supplied from cutlery to bowls to pots and pans. Denise even managed to find us two small tables for the balcony while we were relaxing. Whatever we needed Denise brought to us and tool excellent care of for the entire 17 day visit. When something needed fixing, Donny, the building engineer was more than happy to assist us. Between Denise and Donny, we had a great stay and definitely recommend this to another person or family. The pool was well maintained and was the perfect end to a day of site seeing. About an hour from Disney and Orlando, it was nice to get away from all the tourist traps and relax here.

The view for the July 4th fire works was fabulous! Not having to fight traffic, the weather or crowd was worth event penny for the room. The room was large and clean. The beds were very comfortable. It was appointed with the basics, refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer. The only minor negative about the room was the freezer needed to be defrosted so the refrigerator was barely cold but with all of the amazing restaurants so close by, I didn't need to keep anything cold. I just took the elevator down to Tiki West and got whatever I wanted (you have to try their raw bar!).
