The room was kept clean. Especially the shower room was very clean and in a good environment. The staff were very responsive and were willing to take care of luggage storage and support after check-out.

Thank you for your feedback. We strongly prohibit visitors into our dorms and do wish this was brought to the attention of the staff. I do sincerely apologize. As for the the bug found in the common area restroom, there is no excuse and both our engineering as well as housekeeping teams will be made aware of this discovery. Thank you

Nothing good to say about the room or property. The bed is hard the shower was a trickle. I’ve never stayed in such a horrible place in key west I paid over 500 for two nights for the king size bed private room. Never again
