The hotel fitted our needs very well. It was low key enough for us to relax in the low key Key West atmosphere. Breakfast was healthy and excellent. Evening complimentary wine was a lovely addition! Pool was convenient but not for lap swimming, and the hot tub was big enough to accommodate quite a large gathering if necessary. All very...

LOVED our stay in October 2016! Such friendly staff, adorable rooms + you can go for late night swims in the pool! The location is pretty much perfect right off Duval street. We were lucky to get one of the few parking spots right on the property, could be a pain if you don't. Would return 1000%

We enjoyed our stay at the Cabana Inn Key West. It is located in a great spot right off of Duval in the middle. Half mile walk to Southernmost point. Room was clean and spacious. Stayed in a junior suite. Pool area was nice, not big but doesn't need to be as it's never busy. Didn't care for the pillows,...

Stayed Dec21/24 in upstairs suite. Roomy,clean, nice employees. GREAT hot tub. Could not have asked for better( unless it was the price!) Weather was 84 degrees every day.. To quote Arnold, "I'll be back". Fair warning: those damn roosters start around 4:00am. Turn your air conditioner on continious fan on high. Problem solved. Thanks to all!

have stayed here multiple times and love the place, the rooms, the office and housekeeping staff, happy hour, continental breakfast, pool, hot tub. it's all great - so why only 4 stars? parking is a beast. if you get a hotel spot, it's fine. $25 but fine. problem with that is that some guests are not satisfied with only one...

Great location. Prompt continental breakfast. Very clean room. It owuld be fun to have the happy hour more active. Perhaps, with some music in background and office personnel around to talk and offer their expertise.
