I called a half-dozen BnBs on the island, and most of them are adults-only (for some inadequately explored reason), so if you have kids and want to stay in Key West, your options are limited. But look no further than the Best Western. Not only did they allow kids, but the rooms are larger than you would expect, breakfast is included, and they are cheaper than most of the places I checked.

Room Tip: There are only two floors, so all of the rooms are good, and they all have a view of the pool.

Hotel's Favourite
We have stayed at this location several times now and would not hesitate to do so again. The location is excellent - nearby many local attractions but just a bit outside the more crowded and noisy lower end of Duval Street. A short walk gets you to a Loop bus stop - free public transportation with stops throughout the downtown area. The hotel itself is clean and well maintained. The staff were all very friendly and professional. The included breakfast is great, with hot and cold options, pastries and breads, waffle machines for fresh waffles with or without toppings as preferred, etc. The offerings change daily. And the breakfast attendant rarely stopped moving between replenishing the food, cleaning the breakfast area, and assisting diners as needed. The common areas are clean and obviously well maintained. Snack and soda machines are available, as is free ice and filtered water to refill water bottles. The pool is well maintained and the pool deck has abundant, comfortable seating for lounging between dips in the water. The rooms are comfortable and clean (and quite spacious). We had a 2 queen bed room with separate sinks (one inside the bathroom and another just outside it), refrigerator, microwave oven (popcorn supplied by the hotel) and an in-room safe. Flat screen television with a decent offering of channels was included. The included internet service worked wonderfully. The hotel is very near the Southernmost Point and a public beach. You're only a block off of Duval Street, but that block allows you to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Duval Street while still offering an "escape" from that hustle and bustle when you're ready to relax and wind down. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again...

I really like this hotel! The location, room size and (relative) prices can't be beat. For the most part, service is usually good as well. However, that can depend on who you get. When I was initially checking in, I just had what I thought was a simple request. The 2 ladies working seemed uninterested and then unable/unwilling to help. Luckily, the room wasn't ready so I threw my bag in the middle of the lobby (more on that later) and headed out. A couple hours later I checked back and Derion Clark was working the desk. He instantly handled my request and I was in my room in minutes. My experience went instantly from frustrating to very satisfied. Thanks Derion! I do wish they had a better practice for travelers arriving before rooms are ready. I realize that is a problem when you are fully or heavily booked, but I would recommend having a location other than throwing bags in the lobby where dozens of other customers pass through. Isn't there a locked closet or someplace more secure?

This is a very nice and well maintained hotel. Good location. It was nice to stay at a hotel where there is no resort and parking fees. It was like staying at a resort and the pool was very nice to relax by in the afternoon after seeing the sights in Key West. The staff very friendly and helpful.

We have stayed here 3 times now so we must like the BWH and we do, The staff is very friendly and helpful, except the guy a night who tells us "The pool is closed!". The rooms are clean and comfortable. We slept 8 to 9 hours a night feeling well rested. The free parking is a plus. The downside is the pool area. The furniture needs to be cleaned and the pool deck needs to be resurfaced. We noticed the hot tub was covered with a large plant over it which looked nice. We tell people to check it out and we will be back next time just work on the pool area please.
