I was surprised how cool this place was. We were just visiting for a wkend getaway and didn't need anything fancy, or expensive so my expectations weren't especially high. The rooms at Budget Key West are in an old house, reminessant of the glory days of Key West and I loved it. Our room was perfect. It was on the... More

In the game of polo there is an 'intermission' where they invite spectators to take part in the 'stomping of the divits' to fill in the holes on the playing field. That being said, if my husband and I were Polo players, we could have engaged in some 'divet stomping' right on the mattress at the Budget Key West hotel!... More

Absolutely WONDERFUL hotel in the Key West historical area! CLEAN rooms with kitchenettes, huge shower! No pool but we went there to go snorkeling so it wasen't a big deal. Nice walk to Duval St. Really got face to face with the REAL Key West! Nice veranda. Good price considering it was April. We took the ferry from Ft Myers... More

I was very disappointed...the exhaust fan...was out in the bathroom and either the drained was backed up or it was mold. The stench was so bad we could not even leave the bathroom door open and certainly could not stand the smell when taking a shower without gagging. We did bring this to the front desk attention and they said... More

Sure doesn't look like the pics on Orbitz or Hotels.com. Cleanliness was a serious issue. Smelled stale and smokey even though it is supposed to be a non-smoking hotel. Mold in the shower and on bathroom floor tiles. Carpet was very sticky-would not go bare foot for sure. Bedding and towels were clean. Staff's response was that this is Florida... More

We just returned from a 10 day stay in Key West. We stayed at Budget Key West. It definately exceeded my expectations for the price we paid (about 99/night). Outside of the room is a sitting area with 2 chairs, a table, and an ashtray if you need it. This was a good area to store bikes if you rented... More
