This hotel is one of the worst experiences of the last few years. The first room had so much mold and mildew that it was unusable. Under threats we were given another room in the house next door, also here a mold smell, but now 2 floors with dirty carpeting. The complex is worn out and poorly maintained. The rooms facing the canal are very noisy, you can hear not only the airport but also the street day and night. The hotel is not really a hotel, but merely a house rental. There is no real restaurant, just an open bar where everything takes place. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and bar with the worst drinks from a post-mix facility. The staff (an Asian woman) wears short leggings. It's like a bad joke. The food is on the level of a fast food restaurant. When asked how they could claim it was a 4-star hotel, the staff tell you they don't know either. And it gets even better: be sure to check all bills, a valet service is charged even if you haven't parked a car there. They deliberately lied and even signed a note saying that you had parked there. And wild additional costs are charged that are not included in the reservation. Every item must be checked. There is no gym, but two treadmills and a stepper. The business center is a chair with a computer and a printer. The showers are rotten and the bathroom fixtures are rusty. No room service on the second day. Again, you have to complain until something happens because the phone in the room doesn't work either. The carpet is never vacuumed but swept - like in a developing country. The music at the pools is so loud you can't have a conversation. The chlorine content turned my wife's swimsuit reddish (which is why they waived the service tax). The concierge at the entrance is a bored man who wants to rent out jet skis and other nonsense but has nothing to do with the hotel. The shuttle bus has pointless departure times and can no longer be used after 16:30. All in all, an absolute disaster and not to be recommended. And I've traveled extensively and stayed in hundreds of hotels worldwide, but I've never experienced anything like this - at least not for such a high price and the supposed stars and the marketing blabla on their website. You cannot recommend this place and you will only be cheated. We can't take the good reviews seriously.

The hotel just didn’t live up to the expectation and price tag. I’d stay somewhere else in Key West. First off the hotel property and the room were beautiful and comfortable, and the concierge was great. But overall management and operations is just lacking and I fear this hotel will not make it if our experience is the standard. The biggest issues we had were with the Grove restaurant/bar. We were excited about the event sponsored by a champagne company that was advertised on our first night. When we get to the bar the bar tender hadn’t even heard of it and all her manager would tell her is that our round of drinks is free. I then asked the bar tender about the Christmas themed drinks that were promised throughout the month of December on the same site of the champagne event and 2 weeks into December she had never been told about them from management. The next few days we sat by the pool a few times and we were never able to get service. Those buttons by the pool either don’t work or the staff ignores them. Lastly there were multiple occasions were there were no cleans towels available. Towards the end of our trip we opted to not even spend time around the hotel/pool because of the lack of service at the Grove. Our room also wasn’t quite “clean”. There was a q-tip left in our trash and a few pieces of trash on the floor of the room which really makes you question how clean the rest of the room is. They also do not refresh your room during your stay which is annoying to call if you need a refill on coffee or towels. It would be nice if someone just stopped by the room everyday to check on this for you. The "mandatory" valet parking is kind of a sham too. The large parking lot is right next to the front desk so there's no need to require guest to use the valet service. Lastly, the fitness center was pathetically small and with3 people in there it quickly gets crowded beyond a usable capacity. The management team did try to make up dinner of this to us which is why I upgraded my review to three stars instead of 2. But, with the lack of the resort services we expected we would just stay at an Airbnb in town next time.
