I was expecting a little more amenities for the cost per night. Staff was courteous but not friendly. A month before our arrival, our plans changed slightly. I called and requested an arrival one day later from Sunday to Monday. They charged $25.00 for a key stroke. They also charge $12.00 per day for parking and sometimes, not even on their property. Their continental breakfast was fine but could be found at any Best Western type hotel. There is also a $15.00 Bed Tourist Tax charge per day. Lastly, on their registration form, if you lock yourself out of your room, they charge $25.00 to go open your door. The location is perfect for touring Key West and is fairly quiet compared to the wharf area.
Thank you for your patronage and comments. We’ll try to address them here within the space available. PARKING- 2 lots are onsite and our 3rd lot RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET is rented and not at some out-of-the-way location, as implied. Comm'l parking is never free. The cost is always passed to everyone whether they want parking or not. We’ve opted, as others have, to disclose the fees and only charge guests who want parking. BED/TOURIST TAX- Collecting this 5% tax, levied on every hotel-inn-B&B-motel stay in Florida, is not optional. DATE CHNG FEE- When a reservation’s arrival-departure dates, for which we’ve planned our needs and expenditures, is changed, particularly by one day into the future, it usually creates (esp during high season, Jan-Mar), a 1-day opening (a 'donut hole') where there was previously a back-to-back booking. We can rarely fill these or recoup the entire loss. CONT BRKFST- Uncooked by definition, ours consists of fresh Belgian waffles, assorted bagels, croissants, English and other muffins, pastries, cinnamon buns, mini cheesecakes and eclairs, whole fruit, assorted cut fruit. yogurt, cold cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea, milk, juice and water. Though we’re very tiny compared to Best Western, we’re proud to offer as substantial a breakfast. LOCKOUTS- We never charge to unlock doors during ofc hrs, 9am-9pm. As locksmiths are very costly after hrs, 9pm-9am, we’ve arranged a very fair fee for on-call lockout svc and provide an emergency # for guests. STAFF: We regret you found our staff unfriendly and we’re sorry we didn’t have a chance to discuss this w/you during your stay. Since most guests find us very friendly and helpful, it's important to be able to pinpoint any such occurrences at the time, so we can offer training to those who might be exhibiting unfriendly behavior or as necessary, determine any problem they might be experiencing,and offer appropriate assistance.
