Found this hotel for the good last-minute deal so we could be near Key West. Front desk service was ok. Room has been recently painted and modernized but, the layout was weird. The bed was so far away from the air conditioner that we couldn't feel the cool air, even set in High. The shower was so modern that without half the door, water splashed out. The soaps were so tiny they dissolved before you bathe half your body, and there weren't enough towels for two people (bath and hand towels). We couldn't find the fridge (later it was discovered hidden behind a door in the dresser). There was no iron; guess you have to request it. The parking lot was rustic and terrible; part of it was flooded. Next morning by 5:45 am we woke up to a sweat and realized there was no electricity in the entire hotel. We had to get dressed using our phones' flashlights to leave early because we couldn't stand the heat inside the room without air conditioner. A hotel without an emergency electric plant? This is more like an upgraded motel. After we came home, we discovered an additional charge in our credit card (not explained in the bill with showed a $0 balance.)

So we go to the Keys 2-3 times a year and we completely understand the Keys is the Keys. With that said, the staff was super polite, helpful, and understanding. When we arrived in our room, the wife went on a cleaning spree. She is way more tidy than I am but I too was uncomfortable with what was seen in the room. First, all flat surfaces had dust and hair on em. Layer of dust on the ceiling fan blades, and if it was a carpet floor, I am certain we would have checked out and stayed elsewhere. Upon pulling down the top cover of the beds, the sheets had dirt marks and such that you could literally wipe most of it away. When we moved the pillows, you could see the months of dust bunnies just under the headboard behind the mattress. The wife went to the front and they gave her a brand new set of unopened sheets. Oh and the accommodations force you to eat out every meal. Glad we brought our microwave and a large cooler. The warm fridge in the room holds two bottles of water,lol. So... it gets better. We chose this location and hotel to allow us to put our 17.5 ft. boat in the water. The ONLY way that would have happened is if I backed the trailer to the ramps cliff edge AT high tide. I had to resort to using the city ramp miles away. I could have stayed in other places if that was the initial plan.

Very unassuming at first glance. Don't miss this place. Updated, very very clean room. Tile floors - no icky carpet. Boaters delight. Quiet! Relaxing! Great place to see sunset. Staff friendly and efficient. Best night's sleep in days. Very family friendly. Pool has lounge chairs and umbrellas. Grab n go breakfast that is so common in our Covid world. In room Keurig coffee.
