First I want to note that the last 5 or 6 reviews made me nervous and sickly about coming to this place. I literally expected a room to be falling apart and the pool to be green and unusable. To my surprise this place was just fine. Is it starting to look aged, yes, however, you are still in key...

Strahberrie, thank you so much for staying with us, and for leaving such a nice review. I'm glad you and your son had a great time (and contrary to popular belief, Key West is indeed a great place for families). We appreciate your acknowledgement that we are working through the necessary updates and renovations while the property is actively being...

Place has gone downhill since the owner passed away last May. We had to ask them to clean the room. My feet were black from the floors. Had to constantly ask for pool towels. The manager George is very helpful but it's too much for one person. I won't go back.

We've also hired more staff and are constantly upgrading the rooms. I'm sorry these benefits were not able to be enjoyed while you...

This was our 2nd time here at OBD - we stayed here in March 2014 and had nothing but wonderful things to say about it when it was owned by Kay. She was a fantastic host and George and DJ kept things humming. Kay passed late this summer. Out of the blue an e-mail came saying OBD was under new...

Booked "junior suite" w. breakfast for family of 4 for 2 nites for $672. Upon arrival we found out that no breakfast is included! In the room (appr 23 m2) only double bed + single bed. After request half broken x-bed was delivered. Paper thin walls, lousy AC and dirty pool area. Waste of money!

The only reason I would even think of staying here again is because of the property manager (George). We have been staying here the same 10 days for years, with great customer service and a fair room for a fair price. The new owners have now decided to raise the room prices over $120 per night and are not keeping...

After coming here for a lot of years and it being our favorite place to visit, It is sad that this place was sold and taken over by a group that just doesn't care. When you stayed here, Kay, DJ and the rest of the staff made you feel like it was you home. Now that it was taken over...

Received official email from the new owners confirming what was posted in a previous review, The email clearly states that the Clothing Optional pool policy ends starting Nov 1, 2014. There were so many positives about the property, but this is a significant feature and now that its gone, I feel like Tripadvisor should reset the ratings for this property...
