Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Reviewed 18 December 2015

The room was beautiful, quiet, and comfortable. The bathroom had a spa like feel. We liked the fact that there was no front desk. The staff checked you in at a podium which made the place feel very friendly. We were offered complimentary beverages when we arrived. There is not restaurant, but the food truck made for an interesting alternative....

Rooms are neat and clean with friendly staff. Though it is near to water, you will need to cross a busy street. I was looking for a beach side property but was disappointed to see the actual location. The pool timings are from 8 am to 10 pm with a pool side Bar.

Chelsea V, Manager at The Gates Hotel | Key West, responded to this review

Guptag7, We are glad that you enjoyed your overall stay with us. We are located across the street from the ocean, but not the beach. We would love to have you back with us as we do have beaches very close to us and would be able to assist you with this (about two miles away.)

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They recommended a great restaurant for dinner. Josh, the concierge, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and just a fun guy to talk with about the island. The location is away from the hustle and bustle of the happening scene so it was quiet and peaceful (except for the roosters crowing in the parking lot)....

Jana B, We are delighted that you enjoyed your time here and that our fabulous concierge, Josh, was able to assist you! Thank you for the kind words about our hotel! Sorry for the roosters (a staple of key west) but glad that you got to relax overall!

Deals have become hard to find in Key West. This newly renovated hotel very modern with a sparten like lobby offering a traveler (5hrs driving) little info of what to plan & do. No brochures to be had. Drinks poolside very pricey. Hang in there for happy hour. The staff I dealt with were excellent. Made extra charges a bit...

As most people have commented, the hotel is freshly renovated and the decor is nice. The rooms are modern with gadgets such as the tablet, mini refrigerator and keurig coffee maker. I was at first thrown off by the beds, as they are on wooden slats enclosed in a box but I must say, the bed was VERY comfortable!!! Nice...

rocki143, While we are glad you enjoyed our hotel, the rooms, and the beds, we are upset that you did not feel the value of the resort fee. If you would like to discuss further, please contact me directly at cvendette@gateshotelkeywest.com. We would not like any guest to leave unsatisfied and we did not do this for you.

Reviewed 12 December 2015

The hotel is lovely, quirky and unusual. Food options limited to a catering van parked alongside, and no restaurants nearby. The rooms are great, with comfortable beds and excellent bathrooms. The pool area and bar are very good, as are the staff. The downside is the location, a long way from key west centre and no restaurants within walking distance....

Pros: We've been regular visitors to Key West for over 20 years. Normally we stay closer to Duval Street, but it was a nice change to stay a bit further away this time. We hired bikes for the week, and it was a short 15-20 minutes ride in and out of town. The rooms were very fresh and tastefully decorated....

AliceinCannes, I am so sorry for your experience here with the temperature in the room as this should not have happened as well as the room service issue. This is not the norm and should not have happened to you at all. If you would like to discuss further, please feel free to contact me directly at cvendette@gateshotelkeywest.com.

Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Hotel, including room, was nicely decorated; it had a calm, clean, "beachy" feel to it. Room was spacious - more than ample room for both my bike and all necessary triathlon gear. The only downside was that the room felt a bit damp and as such, we had to keep the AC on so...

Pros: Place was very cute and modern Key West style. Staff was friendly. Clean and convenient to get to from US1. Cons: a few issues with getting and keeping coffee stocked, extra cups etc. nothing major. No restaurant but offers a food truck. We enjoyed our stay. For the price it's great. Prepare to cab it to most key west...
