Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

I was nice suprise from this motel. Cozy, quiet place and good location near beach and southpoint. Room was clean and with day service. There was a fitted kitchen with grill on garden. We grilled with new friends we met there . Amazing time. There is a good "relax zone" for time with friends or on breakfast/dinner.

We stay only for one night. The WiFi wasn't working, small rooms, noisy AC, cockroaches and uncomfortable matrass. Bike rental cheaper down the street. Friendly staff who let us have the car parked during the day of check-out.

the rooms, beds, and bathroom were dirty but the location and price makes up for everything, we did not have to move our car and just rode our bikes into town, glad they replaced the old bunk beds because the top bunk sagged onto the bottom bunk

Traveling solo by Harley into Key West in February (aka high season --- few "bargains" for lodging). Researched the Seashell and it was liked a lot --- and it deserves its ranking. I like hostels for their value but mostly for their clientele --- a lot of young travelers, many foreigners, who generally have a great story to share if...

Inexpensive (for key west), friendly, convenient location, quiet and safe. This hotel is the way to go for budget travel in key west. It's not perfect but the people posting the negative stuff need to remember this is a budget friendly hotel not a 5 star resort. Stayed for 2 nights and could not have been happier for what i...

The rooms are small but tidy and comfortable. The motel is well located not far from Duval Street and all the amenity of Key West. I'd recommend it for a short stay. Parking is not an easy task if you arrive late in the afternoon.

Dirty, small and expensive. They also have some stupid regulations. The toilet facilities is very bad! Key West is a big turist macine. Visit the upper or middle keys instead- much better. Met some great people, but still was not worth it.

“If in the hostel dorm room, choose an upper bunk far from both the central light and entrance for max privacy and sleeping conditions.”
