Good place to stay for Key Largo. Room is basic with floor space. Check-in is by phone in lobby; frig and coffee maker is in laundry room. If back in Key Largo, I'd stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the highway to the Keys"
No staff at reception. Very old and unkempt.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect place to stay for an overnighter in the Upper Keys. Despite some bad on-line reviews (I have stayed in many different hotels in the Keys for years!) this hotel is typical 'Keys'.......and the complaints about the auto-key check in are slightly ridiculous.....you pick up a phone, person on other end gives you a code, you remove your room key. […] Not hard!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No hot water, slow Internet speed, NO HUMAN BEINGS, odd way to check in and out, total bill was almost double of price advertised.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No hot water and NO REAL PERSON from the time we arrived until the time we dropped the key in the box.Genuine Expedia guest review
No onsite person to check in with. Check in was by auto dialed phone in vestibule which disconnected 3 times whirl trying to get check in procedures. NO HOT WATER and no one to report the problem to.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inexpensive, historic, but..."
For an old hotel, it's okay, but too close to highway made our room noisy. Moldy, musty smell. No wifi. Glad we had our hotspot. But Cafe Moka next door is awesome.Genuine Expedia guest review
Other than the noise all night, must be part of the mystique., OKGenuine Expedia guest review
"Get what you paid for"
It was nice to be in an historical building. The room was pretty tiny, and there is no one at the desk, just a number to call. The location is good, but the immediate surrounding area doesn't have much in terms of entertainment. If you have a car it's just a short drive to nightlife and other activities. Since it was one of the cheaper accommodations […] on New Years, it wasn't bad. There is complimentary laundry (bring your own soap) in the common room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
""Rustic" is a polite way of putting it, I suppose"
A bit of a complicated check-in process. You have to call a person on the phone who then gives you a code to get your key from a lockbox. Only problem is that the person we called could not find the code, so we stood there for probably ten minutes while he called somebody ELSE to get the code so we could get our key. (o_O) Second, be advised, the walls […] are PAPER THIN. You can hear everything, and I mean EVERYTHING in the room next door. Can't emphasize this enough. It is a charming place I suppose, but don't come looking for convenience or privacy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worst hotel ever"
This place is a rip-off. They claim its a historic hotel and what you get is a cramped room which just fits a bed. No space to move around and the room cooler makes hell of a noise to keep you awake all night. There is no person to meet you at the front desk and you have to talk to the call center for any help.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is an odd little hotel. It's perfectly fine if you're just looking for a bed and a shower for a low price. There is no staff onsite - check in is done via a phone and a lockbox. There is no maid service during your stay, they only clean the room after you check out. That being said, our room was very clean upon check in. The rooms are very small […] and felt crowded with just me and my wife in there. The bathroom is tiny too and the toilet is so close to the wall that my knees would occasionally touch it. There are plenty of dining options and a grocery store a short drive away. The coffee shop next door had the best coffee in the keys which is a great bonus. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for 1 night"
I was very excited about spending a night at this hotel as it's previous reviews said about its old vintage feel and I was looking forward for it as I missed my ancestral home.. The initial feel was good as the room was neat, the bed was huge and had a homely feeling.. The size of the room was small but I could ignore it.. But the worst part was the […] bathroom!! The toilet did not flush and the bath area was not that great.. And in the morning the wash basin quit draining!! That completely spoilt my mood and I checked out as soon as I was ready to leave.. Location and everything is good but with no Front desk or any one to ask for help it was a little dis heartening.. So overall I was very disappointed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Historic? Nice word for old and outdated."
Our room was damp and while using the air conditioner the air smelled like an non-ventilated basement. We asked for another room but none was available. There was no stuff on site, only by phone.Genuine Expedia guest review
If you are a college student, and looking for a cheap place, then this place is the place to stay. However, the building is old, window unit AC is very loud, and you can hear everything from the rooms upstairs... The room is also very humid, even the AC is on. There is no front desk. You call from the phone in the front door, and get a room key. And […] the person who were on the phone ("front desk" person) was not professional at all... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
we did not stay there. The room smelled musty and damp.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"okay but wouldn't stay again"
Building is old however rooms, bathroom and bedding was clean. Bed was uncomfortable and creaked and tv would shut off when the ac would be on for longer than 15 mins ( no central air).. Hallway had a damp smell as if there was previously a leak.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You have to make your own bed, exchange your own towels, nobody cleans your room and there is no front desk service in the evening. The internet connection was poor at best and there was not so much as a desk to sit at to do your work. I would not recommend this place to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is adequate for cleanliness, but the shower did nothing but spray cold water and there was no one on site to talk to. Also Internet did not work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but had unusual check in system."
Would rather have a person check us in rather than an automated system. The room was clean but we were unable to find any cups anywhere and the room had no hot water. We were generally satisfied and would stay again for a short term stay. Rates were good.The cafe next to the hotel was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Never saw a staff member"
While the room was clean and the building itself seemed kept up I would not stay here again. When we came to check in at 7:30 pm (24 hour check in was advertised) we had to use a phone to call a service that would give a code to a lock box where the room key was located. Unfortunately the phone kept disconnecting. It took more than 20 minutes to finally […] get through - and then we got disconnected before I could get the code. If we hadn't prepaid we would have left and gone elsewhere. After another 15 minutes we were finally able to get the code. The sign said someone would be at the "check in desk" from 7:30am until 8:00pm - we left at 10:00am the next morning, and never saw anyone. There is a drop box to leave the key - hence no receipt.

"Will stay again"
Nice place. Only issue was there was no front desk just a phone that called someone to give you the code to a lock box that your key was in. No one answered the phone... A maintenance worker was able to get ahold of someone one and besides that we had a great stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Check-In via box was really new for us. It is more a Motel than a Hotel. Also the redused service. This Hotel is nice for one or two nights. No coffee maker into the room. The room was very small but very clean. This was the good Thing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was no loud noises, great location in the middle part of the Keys, it had pretty much everything I could need for a night and a fair price. I recommend it!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice older hotel. Quaint, but very clean."
My wife and I were returning from KEY WEST, and decided to get in an extra day of snorkeling. Found this hotel on Expedia, second from cheapest, and liked the old hotel atmosphere. Check in was weird, as we never saw anyone in person. All communication was by house phone, with old fashioned actual brass key in an individual lock box which they gave […] you a code to open. We never saw any hotel personnel, but everything turned out well. Nothing but a clean place to spend the night. Bed was comfortable with a real Feather Pillow (there was also a foam one for anyone allergic to feathers. Would stay again if just needing lodging and a convenient base of operations.

Not a fancy hotel but if you want a place to sleep, shower and store your gear its greatGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK Hotel or Motel?"
It was OK. Really nothing special at all. Good to get some rest but not to stay in for more than a day or two. Too expensive for what it is.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice clean hotel. The funny thing was there was nobody there. I walk in and there's a phone, so I call and a guy on the other end gives a number for a key lock box to retrieve my key. Everything was fine for the night but I wonder if there was any problems who do you call. No phones in the room. Saw people cleaning the rooms the next day, but […] no one in the office. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I visit the Keys on a monthly basis sometimes 2-3 times on business, first time I stayed here as it was the opening day of lobster season which made it practically impossible to find a hotel. This place was a joke, check in was by telephone through some lock boxes in the lobby. I get to the room and no cups for water, no coffee maker, no alarm clock, […] no ice bucket or even an Ice machine I could find in the hotel. AC unit was so loud all night could not sleep, hot water in shower took 15 minutes to finally get luke warm. Overall a bad stay and would not recommend it to anyone.

Late arrival-no staff-hot room- not really clean. Hitel is old-not what I would call histotic. Very disappointing!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Antiquated is a better description than Historic"
1. No desk staff and the "assistance" phone had a full mail box. 2. I called the number on the reservation form I had and got assistance to get ONE key for the room. Also helped another couple to get their key. 3. Room had no phone, no chair, no drinking glasses. The bathroom was so small if you sneezed while on the commode you would strike your head […] on the wall in front of you. 4.No fresh towels on a daily basis. 5. I never saw any staff the entire time there. 6. The pillows on the bed were not comfortable enough for me. 7. The room was reasonably clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is perfect hotel for a one or two night stay. The rooms are on the smaller size but the bed was very comfortable. The location is convenient and I did love the easy check in. Overall this is a place I would stay at again for weekend get away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. Very clean,bed was comfortable,room temperature was fine. The only difficulty we had was with the direct check in. We had never experienced this before. We were supposed to receive an email with our room number and lock box combination. We had not received it by 11:00 of our check in day and called […] and left a message but did not get a call back. By 4:00,which is check in time, we called again and did receive the information and checked in without a problem. We were just nervous for a while, not sure if we really had a room or not.

"Not clode to the beach as I was told"
There was a crab in the lobby and you could hear everything in the hallways . Beach wasn't near. No microwave or fridge .Genuine Expedia guest review
Great price to be in keys with planning to be outdoors most of time. Great place to get a good night sleepGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No staff, no comfort"
I put "OK" in my evaluation of Hotel's staff but there was no person at all. In fact, the hotel has no reception. You call from a telephone in the wall and they allow you to take a key from a box. We were three people with only one key. The room was completely humid. There were leaks, stains, in the walls. It was difficult to sleep at night. Persons […] with asthma please think twice to stay in that hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to my dive shop and breakfast"
It was a last minute booking that satisfied my needs. I was happy they were less than 2 miles from my dive shop and right next door to my breakfast spot that serves Cuban coffee and egg sandwiches starting at 5:00 AM. The price was right and commensurate with the amenitiesGenuine Expedia guest review
Only stayed overnight on my way to Key West and it was OK. The shower was clogged. Bed was OK. A.C. TV. Good night sleep. Beautiful garden.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Served our needs"
In the ocean each day, so the room was for sleeping. Just fine for that. Getting new furnishings too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One star hotel with a 3+ star price"
I would stay there again, but only one night..... Pros...clean room, no bugs, cold AC, comfortable King Bed. Town center close w/ supermarket, restaurants and 24 hr Micky'd ..Cons...no staff on site, plenty of attitude on courtesy phone when requesting toilet paper and clean towels. Both entrances doors was not locked during late hours. Try rolling […] your suitcase or cooler on the stone walkways from the rear parking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap and you get what you pay for"
You have to jump through hoops to get checked in and your on your own. If you make it to the key stage hang on to it! I did not see one symbalist of hotel staff. The coffee next door at the cafe was good but don't expect anything more than a continental breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place for that quaint an romantic getaway. Very central. Loved it and recommend it. We will be backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ground yourself in what Historic means...."
If you ground yourself in what Historic means, you won't be disappointed. The history was interesting, however, the room hasn't had many upgrades that count since it was built in 1935. It was clean it and it was a good night sleep in a nicely air conditioned room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Nice Old Hotel"
We had a small room with a very comfortable queen-sized bed, and an even smaller bathroom. There was some evidence of mold around the edges of the shower, the sink faucet was loose -- if you pulled up, it moved about an inch or so -- and the bathroom window did not close properly. Towels were bright white, there was adequate shower gel, shampoo, and […] conditioner.. No phone in the room, and no complimentary box of Kleenex. A/C was from a wall unit, and adequately cooled the room which was clean, freshly painted, and carpeted. The major problem we had when we got there was that there was no reception desk. Just a wall phone with a dial tone, but no keypad. To the right was a bank of locked boxes with a key code beneath each one. A sign above the locked box gave a number to call, but after waiting and waiting for someone to answer, I hung up, and found a woman, presumably the manger, who called and got the code to the lock box, opened it, and gave us our room key. She said Expedia had not given us the code to the lock box. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for the price"
This hotel is exactly what you would expect for the price you pay. Keep in mind that the hotel by name, is described as historical and don't expect anything modern aside from a small wall mounted television. We arrived to an unstaffed building and retrieved our room key from a lock box. The room was a bed, a tv, and a small bathroom which was perfect […] for the one night getaway we planned last minute in key largo. If you're looking for an inexpensive, clean, basic room for a good value, this is perfect. Wouldn't recommend for an extended stay or family vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It's a room. That's pretty much it."
For what we could find, it was adequate. It was the cheapest place we could find in the keys. Just be sure you are ready for what is in store. There is no front desk, just lock boxes on a wall. You have to call a number that they will tell you your room number and the code to get your key. However, if there hadn't been a customer just hanging out in […] the "lobby" we wouldn't have know that. The room was old and a little dingy, which is fine, we didn't spend much time in it, but there was a towel in the dresser.. not sure if it was used or not, I didn't touch it.

"Old fashion hotel"
When I first saw the hotel from outside I was a little let down by the "old" look, but inside was really nice , room was clean with clean towels. The bed was comfortable and did not have any trouble during my stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Provence in the Keys"
The hotel is charming, beautiful courtyard,no staff Sat through Sunday so it's hard to rate. The Moka cafe is great. The croissants are out of this world. Between the Tavernier and the Moka,it's like being in Provence in the Keys. The hotel is quaint with wonderful old pictures of the Keys prior to Hemingway's era.This hotel is a little jewel, designed […] for people with taste, not people who like all the modern aspects of life It does have good wi-fi,TV..

Could have been cleaner. Dust bunnies not usual in a hotel, and the drawers were foul smelling, like salvaged from a flood and never properly sanitized. Just opening them while looking for the remote was a shock. With only one luggage stand, drawers would have been useful. And they don't do daily maid service so i was surprised to return to an unmade […] bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
