Beautiful location. One of the best prices we found. Staff was nice and helpful. Clean but dated. The BATHROOM in our room needed some serious updating. Ever hear of these new fangled vent fan thingys all the kids are raving about??? The closet was larger than the bathroom. We will stay here again... (CHEAP and CLEAN) but we will bring our own box fan to air out the tiny bathroom after a shower.

$100 room deposit (credit) and $45 resort fee (cash) according to clerk. The statement about cash payment was confusing. At checkout. we paid with credit and we are waiting for credit of the balance.

Nice, cozy motel that is close to everything. Walking distance and near the free bus loop. Bathroom small but everything comfortable and clean. Would return if I am in Key West.
