Spent another great week at the Key. They never disappoint. Bill Mitchell and his entire staff are always very accommodating and are very responsive. Located across the street (Atlantic), very short walk to the beach. Indoor pool and hot tub available on the first floor. Daily towel exchange and laundry service as well. Front desk is staffed and ready to...

Ocean Key Resort is nice. The bedroom was a little small but bearable. The sitting room was a nice size. We had a beach front view which was really nice. The resort is located at the far end of the strip across the street from the beach. The place was very clean and pretty modern. It appears there may have...

Ocean Key resort was great! It's more of a hotel setting but much better! We had a one bedroom condo with a full kitchen! We had a great ocean view the beach was our backyard and the sun rise was our alarm clock!

We spent a few days here during spring break. First impression, it is a very clean location. It is right across from the boardwalk but it is near the end of the boardwalk so it is pretty quiet. The pool is adequate. It can get a bit rough with too many kids. Unfortunately, my daughter who loves to swim declined...

My husband and I stayed here for a week and it was a good experience. Our room had a nice little sitting area, kitchenette, and balcony which was nice. The room faced the Pacific Ave. side. The indoor pool and hot tub were very nice and the pool area had adult only hours which was very nice. The staff was...

The ocean key resort was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and it was a short walk from the beach and quite a few good restaurants. The only complaint I had was how tight the parking deck was. I have an extended cab truck and it barely fit.

We were booked from Saturday to Saturday but after getting married on Sunday couldn't make it till Tuesday because of circumstances and our only regret is we missed out on those days!

On our first day, there was a cockroach that ran from the sink to the counter top. I was not pleased with this. Had I seen another, I would definitely had complained. Thankfully, the guy was alone.

I apologize that your stay did not meet your expectations. Although we have sound proofing between the units but it sounds like it was not effective for your stay and although “quiet hours” are between 10pm and 7am, the agents should have offered to make a call for you – definitely a training opportunity and I appreciate your sharing it....

This property is disgustingly dirty. Hair on the floor in the bathroom and it was never addressed. Did not stay the full time we booked. The management was good about refunding all the $ we were charged. The patrons were smoking in the rooms in a non smoking facility.
