The bed mattress was totally worn out. Worst night sleep in any location we have stayed. Both sink faucets leaked and the toilet leaked as well.

The Banana Boat

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: The trolley tour was awesome.
Upon arrival, we thought we were at the wrong place. The outside appeared to be very old and run down. Upon entering the lobby when we realized we were at the right place, there was no one at the front desk. We waited and finally called the number posted on the counter to have someone come up and ask what we wanted. We said we were here to check in. The young man then left and re-entered behind the counter to check us in. What a mistake. As noted below you cannot or won't post bad reviews, therefore, I will just say, this was a live and learn situation and will do a lot more research next time we use this method to obtain accommodations.

This is not a resort of any kind dirty and very loud.Roosters crowing at 4:00am like they were in your room. Old TV and the remote did not work. Lamp in room had a burnt cord and burnt place in old carpet. Bed linen old and stiff. Old mattres and room smelled like a wet dog. Lot and lots of issues. There are a lot better cheaper and safer places in key west

Generally pleased.

Pros: Location, price, beach and pool. Room was spacious and comfortable.
Cons: They need to get the wi-fi back up and working. TV could be updated.
Location: It was in a good location between downtown, boat docks and airport.
I was a little anxious when I saw it from the outside but the inside is clean and comfortable. I loved the location on the water with its own little beach and a very inviting pool and pool area.

Good value.

My only complaint was that we stated two nights and the room wasn't cleaned between nights 1 and 2.

Didn't stay at hotel

Pros: None. Jason the manager was wonderful and helpful.
Cons: Don't list this hotel.
At check in the hotel had no suitable available room for me. So I was transferred to a different more expensive hotel. I am awaiting a refund from Travelocity. The hotel manager confirmed this for Travelocity. Please see that my full refund gets credited to me as soon as possible. Jason the manager was wonderful and helpful. Thank you, Chris Ambrosio

Nice hotel with small beach, pool, patio

Cons: The view outside the door.
Location: With transportation everything is easy to find but not within walking distance.
Hotel was OK, a little rough around the edges but quiet, clean and a breakfast. Plus, there is a couple of loud roosters for entertainment.

Pros: I thought it was closer to the beach. It wasn't.
Cons: It looked shabby from the street. I never saw a room.
Location: It's Key West - take the hop on-hop off trolley tour,
We arrived tired and hungry to be told our reservation would not be honored but they would pay for us to stay in another hotel down the street. We were given a form to take to the other hotel so I'm thinking this has happened before.

Very outdated

Old outdated hotel. No safe in room. Was kept clean strange occurrences in room. I normally don't jump to any bizarre conclusions about anything but I really think this room was haunted. Things disappeared,moved locations like furthermore was left in a place but 5 minutes later it was somewhere else. Their are even more strange occurrences.
