We only stayed in Key West for a night. We ended up booking a room here because our trip was kind of last-minute and all the other hotels in the area were either already booked or too expensive. Didn’t realize until after we arrived that this was because it’s Spring Break. However, we were so delighted once we arrived that this inn was in a great location and was a good experience overall.
The staff member that checked us in (Betsy) was very friendly, even at 8:30PM when we checked in. The location on Truman Ave is just a very short walk to Duval St. Even my very pregnant wife was able to walk around everywhere. Close enough to all the action and yet far away enough that the noise doesn’t reach the inn. Slept really well. Nice pool area where they served breakfast in the morning. Plenty of places to sit in the shade or lounge in the sun. Another nice perk is on-site parking. They have 3 parking lots.
We stayed in the main building on the 2nd floor. Since it’s an old building, there’s no elevator. This was fine for me since I’m young and can lug our bags up the stairs. This could be troublesome for older or weaker folks. The shared wrap-around balcony from our room was nice, too. There is Wifi on the property but my smartphone had strong signal so I didn’t use it. I think Betsy said the signal is strongest in the lobby and by the pool. I saw some folks lounging in the lobby during the evening just to use the Wifi.
Will very likely book this place again.By: Edward L on March 11, 2013
