Came during busy season and only stayed one night. Due to space we needed, the limited availability due to the season and the fact that we only were going to only stay one night, we splurged on a 1-bedroom suite. Best money we could have ever spent on Key West. The accommodations were excellent, the staff was so friendly and the location was amazing....an oasis right in the middle of everything there is to do in Old Town Key West. Would come back again, reserve with more lead time so we can stay moe days for less money.

Room Tip: Apparently the roosters make a lot of noise. Make sure to get a high room (4th or 5th floor) that faces away from Duval St or that faces the little part of Duval St that is on the water. We slept great....didn't hear traffic or roosters.

This hotel has the best location in Key West. The first strip of hotels when you get to Key West are on a one way road that is surrounded by construction...no thanks! We were at the end of Duval Street where the sun sets and the cruise ships come in, so we had an amazing view. The room was clean and large. At first the hot tub in our room didn't work, so they moved us one floor down. The rooms on the top floor have large ceilings and better views. You have to use the valet for parking, which is good, but buy snacks and liquor outside of the hotel and don't use the minibar! We will definitely return to this hotel next trip! Very close to restaurants and shopping.

We travel to Key West once a year for a getaway without the kids for a long weekend. In the past, we have stayed at highly rated Bed & Breakfasts, & really haven't been overly impressed with either we have tried (see prior reviews if interested). Last year, when going down to Mallory Square for the sunset, I saw Ocean Key & those rooms perched right out over Mallory Square with unobstructed sunset views; it seemed just perfect, so in 2012, we chose Ocean Key & picked an oceanfront deluxe guestroom just so we could get one of those rooms. First of all, let me say I'm so glad we did. You know those times when people tell you, "It doesn't matter about your room; you're only in there to sleep," well, this is not the case here -- not if part of your goal in coming to KW is to relax & soak in those sunsets. (If you just want to drink on Duval, then maybe it really doesn't matter.)

We did experience a problem upon check-in but I feel it was properly handled by the desk staff. We checked in at midnight on a Friday (due to plane delay) & as I said, the whole reason for us choosing Ocean Key was to stay in a deluxe oceanfront guestroom (300 square feet, jacuzzi in room, amazing view), but upon being walked to our room, I discovered it was an ocean view boutique suite (600 square feet, huge bathroom but no in-room jacuzzi, and most importantly, a mediocre view). I went down to the front desk & Sharon helped me. Their excuse for this was it was the same room "type" with the same cost, but I don't care about the semantics of all that. I booked this particular room in March & I deserve the room I booked, which is the whole reason we chose Ocean Key. She was matter-of-fact but efficient, but explained there was nothing they could do until tomorrow since the place was so full. I went back to the room a little disappointed with the answer I got, but a few minutes after returning to the room, she called and said we got a $100 credit for the mistake & we would be moved asap the next day. The next day, Shayla, helped ease us into the next room, and then I was VERY happy after that -- room 416 -- Perfect.

I'd like to address the roosters crowing. I think they're quirky and charming, but do you know why? Because we were on the 4th floor, closer to the ocean & away from the roosters, so they don't bother me when I am sleeping -- yet another reason to choose a nice room on the 4th or 5th floor.

Each night, we could watch the sunset celebration from our room, and BONUS, the holiday boat parade was when we were there so we got to watch the holiday lights adorn all those huge sailboats and yachts -- all of this without leaving our balcony. This room delivers what KY is all about. There are even manatees swimming right below the sunset pier; we could see those from the room too.

In sum, just check out my pictures. You'll love Ocean Key if you plan ahead & pick the right room. And, from now on, I'll call ahead and make sure just because I'm a late arrival, we don't get put in a room we did not select. But, we'll be back in 2013. You can't argue with that view perched right at the end of the world over the ocean.

Room Tip: The deluxe ocean front guestroom is the way to go if you want an elegant, quaint, romantic room with the best views in Key West, & jacuzzi in room to boot! It's worth the extra $$. And you won't hear the roosters crowing on the 4th or 5th floors.

We just returned from Key West. We've been going there for the past 14 years every year. We usually go down to the Sunset Pier and watch the sun go down as others do. Over the years the waitresses have been very friendly. This year stands out, as we had one of the best waitresses we've every had. We traveled with two other couples and they said the same thing. She was simply amazing. She made our trip even more enjoyable. Smiling, funny and prompt. After the first night we just asked for her when we went there. She's great. Her name was Paula. Thank you Paula.

Spent a long weekend here with my husband, leaving our three small children at home. Granted I have been very sleep deprived, but the beds was one of the best I've seen and the pillows were super comfy. Large space, large tub and separate clean shower. Had a partial view of the ocean/just off duval. It was ok, not spectacular, I'd upgrade o full view, but stay away from the Mallory Square side, I heard the roosters are loud over there. All the staff was very nice, pool was nice. Never crowded, bar staff starts cocktailing around 11:30. The drinks are pricy, but made with a little extra care, not dirty cheap. Very lean and quick chair turn around. Ate breakfast at hot tin roof. It was fine, nothing special. Nice view, but my coffee was cold. Boo. On one end of Duvall, nice location. Got a massage, again just ok. Oh the tv in the bed area is old with bad reception. There is a better tv in the suite living room area, but I rather watch tv in bed. That's the only real negative. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from the roosters, seriously.
