We booked this hotel because we wanted to visit Key West and not stay right in the downtown area. We wanted a place with a pool, a place to do your laundry, breakfast included and a snack bar. Best Western Key Ambassador fit the bill exactly.
We were between cruises out of Miami, and decided to book a few days in Key West. I'm happy we read the reviews and chose this hotel. It isn't too far from downtown, however, you'll need to take the shuttle, a bus, or drive, its too far to walk. Our room was very clean and large with two queen beds and a large flat screen tv. We even had a small screened in balcony we sat on occasionally. No view, except for trees covering the next door apt building.
The laundry was near the office, I forget the cost, not expensive. You can also buy detergent at the front desk.
The pool is large and free form. Perfect for an evening swim after a hot day walking around Key West. At the pool area, is the Cheekie Hut, where you can get cocktails and food. It closes early, no dinner, just lunch and snacks. There are TV's at the bar to watch sports if you like, or you can sit by the pool, drink in hand and enjoy a swim. The people who work here are very friendly and drinks are very good. I did two loads of laundry and spent my waiting time at Cheekies.
Breakfast was continental, including hard boiled eggs, fruit, all kinds of toast, jams, butter, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea and juices. Perfect! It's served in a nice little breakfast area, which was in the building where we were staying. A simple walk down the stairs and there we were!
We drove into town during the day and had no trouble finding street parking. Be sure to pay in the machines! We walked all over and saw beautiful homes, shops, bars, restaurants, museums, and of course had lunch with Conch fritters as a starter and Key Lime pie for dessert.
We were happy to return to the Best Western Key for a swim, drink and relaxation each day.
The planes didn't bother us, and no planes at night.
