This motel was just what I was looking for: very clean large room with a fridge and very nice bathroom. Very close to the Southernmost End with great places to eat and shop near by. 2 blocks from the public beach. The pool was perfect temperature. I will stay here again.

The pool is very nice and well taken care of, that was the kids favourite. The breakfast was not top of the line exactly, The location is within easy walking distance everywhere, but still outside the buzz from the tourist trap's. This is not a fancy new hotel, but a motel, but everything is clean. Would stay ther again.

The reviews were good, and the price was right for Key West. We were not disappointed. The rooms were good sized and very clean. The staff was friendly. The...

My 2 friends and I originally booked our stay at the Best Western Hibiscus Motel across the street, but they quickly turned our business down when they found out 1 girl in our group was 23 years old. I'm 30 and booked the reservation and with most hotels that is the general policy: being older than 25 to check in....

Newly renovated, affordable, great location--we walked everywhere, and the people at the front desk and all the other employees we encountered were so friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was very basic, but c'mon, you're in Key West! So many awesome restaurants within walking distance
