Key West Hospitality Inns is a business that owns/manages several guest houses. We booked a room at Colors on White. When we arrived we were told that Colors on White was overbooked so we were being upgraded into room 212 at Olivia by Duvall.
Frankly-if this was an upgrade the original room must have been horrible. Please note: The room we stayed in is not in the pictures shown on their website. Those are the two rooms facing the rear of the building and opening to the pool deck. If our room even looked like one of those two this would be a different review. I think they were staged for the pics because the rooms did not look like the pictures when we peeked in.
-Very close to Duvall (This kept the rating from being worse).
-Roof didn't leak (it didn't rain, but there weren't water stains on the ceiling-work with me here...)
-Front door does not seal, bugs got in.
-Sheetrock tape hanging from ceiling.
-Ants in the kitchenette area.
-Bathroom just bad.
-Room connects to both of the other rooms in the house. Doors were locked to both sides, but lots of noise through the doors.
-No closet. A curtain across the stairwell hanging from a shower rod with a couple of hangers.
-Street is approx 20 feet from the front door. Two parking spaces at the porch. Throughout the night you will be entertained by people slamming car doors, drunks staggering down the street, couples fighting, and groups loudly debating the next bar needing to be graced by their presence.
The worse thing of all:
The mattresses were both worn beyond service. The better of the two was rock hard, you could feel the coil springs through the padding, and when you moved in bed it was often accompanied by popping and soft "Boing/ Doing/ Spring Sounds". Honestly, when you woke up you felt like you'd spent the night working out at the gym rather than sleeping.
Eclectic and vintage left this room a while ago. Seedy and worn is reality today. The upside is that now we have agreed that $260 dollars a night can no longer get us a decent room in Key West. This room was everything I would have expected from a $40.00 a night roadside mom and pop motel. We will either book a well rated house or at one of the resorts. And keep in mind: It doesn't matter that you have a confirmed, paid in full reservation. You may not get what you paid for with these folks.
