    Misleading advertisement!

    They advertised a queen sized bed in the room. Instead they placed a full sized mattress (54 inches in width) into a queen sized frame (60 inches in width). We called down to inquire and were told that we were incorrect, as all the rooms had queen sized beds. This was not the case for the mattress in the bed frame. Nor was it true for the mattress that had been stuffed into the room closet, blocking our use of the closet during our stay. Please see the attached photos to see the mattress stuffed into the closet. The bathroom walls contained several small, unpatched screw holes, and one large hole, of which another photo is attached. The toilet tank took an extremely long time to fill, and ran continuously. In the main room, there was a broken light switch/dimmer, burnt out bulbs, and a broken outlet cover. The television received only a single channel, and there was no WiFi at all. The air conditioning unit was so loud that it honestly and completely drowned out the live music that was playing just below the room.

    Perfect location on Duval Street. Not fancy, but clean and efficient. Only complaint is that the TV only got one chamel and the internet was slow - two items not needed constantly on Duval St/Key West.

    Location was amazing right off Duval. Price was reasonable for spring break week. Bed was not as comfortable but we weren’t in the room much because we were there to visit Key West.
