This was my first visit to Key West and I picked this hotel based on some reviews and mostly lack of time. We booked this hotel with non-refundable rates, so my decision was pretty much final. We got lucky that I picked the Ocean view room: it was huge, clean and yes, facing the Ocean. The view was absolutely great.
In my opinion, if you choose this hotel, the Ocean view rooms are your only options because you cannot hear the planes at the adjacent airport (shockingly close), and the view. Keep in mind that there is a busy road between you and the ocean, so there is a lot of traffic noise to consider.
I think the worst parts are prices (very overpriced) and location. It is probably the longest distance from Duval and all the attractions. I would recommend getting something closer to the Old Town. I was personally satisfied with my stay (besides ridiculous rates) since we spend a lot of time on the balcony looking at the Ocean.
