  • Overpriced ...... College kids control pool area


    Our one night 03/10/12 at $282.49 total and you get location, not relax/comfort. College students controlled pool & hot tub. Over 2 hours playing beer pong in the pool using 2 float lounges with table connected over them and spilling beer into pool while management notices but ignores situation. Nothing special about this hotel as far as looks go, just your typical old, U-shape design with a crammed pool within it. Room was typical (nice) Best Western. But, keep in mind if you book here, this is a motel, you will not get the atmosphere of a hotel or resort. I only rate this a 2-1/2 star rating motel at best. Overall, you expect much more from a Best Western. Only positive about this place: close to town (1 mile) with this place for your free parking.

    Close to Duval Street


    Initially, we wished to stay at the Blue Marlin, but they did not answer our request and we did not find it on a booking site.
    One of my colleague stayd at the the BW on Spring 2007. So I chose the BW which is just beside the Blue Marlin when I went to Key West in November 2007.

    The hotel is at 3 blocks from the Route 1 and the beginning of the lively part of Duval Street.

    We payd 139$ per night, tax included (senior rate) on the BW website.

    Unique Quality: Room : very large, clean, with 2 queen beds, at the ground floor.
    Several reviews on Tripadvisor told there were ants in the room. We do not meet these insects.
    TV :satellite but without HBO (film without advertisement)
    Equipments : fridge (in some rooms only), safe, coffee maker, iron and iron board
    Internet : free in the lobby and in some rooms
    Breakfast : from 7:00 to 9:30AM (week days), bagel, bread, fruits, cakes, waffles, juices
    Parking : free
    Pool : external, jaccuzi, hitted (pay attention the hitting machine can be noisy, avoid to stay nearby), open from 9AM to 10 PM.

    It was possible to rent a motorcycle just beside the hotel.

    Directions: Not far from the sea but at 30 min from Mallory Square on foot.

Best Western Hibiscus ... Best value hotel on the Island

by TripAdvisor Member maggs01

My Husband and I spent 3 nights at the Hibiscus over the first weekend of Conch Republic. This was our second visit to Key West having stayed at Centre Court last year. In terms of value for money no question that BW is probably the best hotel on the Island, Can vouch for all other positive reviews with regard to location, rooms size & cleanliness etc, ( one very small negative AC was sooo noisy) Breakfast limited but a glass of OJ and coffee is enough to get most people going!!!. Expedia photos do not do the pool area justice. Good size pool, plenty of open area for sunbathers but some large palm trees around the edge of the courtyard provided shade also. Staffs were more than helpful offering loads of advice.
As I mentioned we were in KW last year and whilst Centre Court was superb, you do not go to KW to spend a lot of time in your room, its all about bars, dining and water activities etc So stay at BW you'll get 3 nights stay for the price of 2 at any of the mid range hotels and B&Bs.

Good Value

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I just returned from a week in Key West. We found the BW Hibiscus to be a good value for the room rate. Convenient to Duval Street and all the attractions as well.

The pool and jacuzzi were fine.

It's not a resort, but then again you're not paying resort prices.

A great place to stay

by TripAdvisor Member mln

We have stayed at the Hibiscus several times and have always had a great time. The staff is wonderful and helpful, the rooms are clean and the breakfast was, bagels, cereal, danish, fruit... Parking was ample, we never used our car though. We rented both bicycles and mopeds. Duval is only one street over and Mallory Square is within walking distance. The ocean is one block also. Met lots of great people in the jacuzzi and pool area each day. We are definitely planning another trip.

Great value and friendly people

by A TripAdvisor Member

Went only for a short stay in Key West to attend a wedding. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hibiscus. Nice big room and very, very friendly staff. Was never awake early enough to get the breakfast that was offered so couldn't say anything about that, but there were plenty of restaurants nearby where you can get good food (breakfast until 2PM in some). Didn't get a chance to try the pool because we were trying to see as much as we can during our 3-day stay and between the wedding activities. Nice, quiet location but within walking distance to everything. It was great to be able to rent bikes (or scooters) right in front of the hotel - which we did! Had a great time! We decided we'd like to come back to Key West again one of these days. We know where to stay (again) next time...

Would stay there again

by TripAdvisor Member BaileyBobBurnaby

Feb 14/2005 - stayed at the Hibiscus for one night. It was a great location. Within walking distance of Duval street, but not too noisy.
Room was nice & clean. My only complaint when we came back from a nice valentines dinner, we phoned down and asked the front desk what time the Hot Tub closed. We were told 11:00 p.m.
When we went down to the Hot Tub around 10:35 a very sarcastic employee pointed to a sign and said "can't you read?" Because we hadn't been to the pool area, we hadn't see the sign that read pool & hot tub closed at 10:00 p.m. He told us we couldn't go in the Hot Tub. I explained how the front desk had told us it was open until 11:00, but he was quite rude, made another sarcastic comment and walked off.

Terrific location

by TripAdvisor Member Mezlin

Terrific location, convenient, yet quiet. You can experience the real Key West, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. Yet only a block from Duval and 1 mile from Market Place.

Loved the location

by TripAdvisor Member mrnatural52

The Hibiscus is located close to the Atlantic Ocean and a block from Duval St. It has a wonderful pool and hot tub. The people working there are friendly. The rooms are nice and the area is quiet. You can walk to restaurants, bars and the best sandwiches in Key West @ The SouthernMost Variety. Try the Cuban mmm...

Ideal Location

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed at this hotel last October for a couple of nights. We had not previously booked but researched this hotel. The room was very spacious and clean. The location was ideal just a short walk to the nightlife of Key West. The pool was immaculate, it was cleaned out every day. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The continental breakfast consisted of muffins, cereals etc. and we used to eat it by the pool. It was great of an evening we would come back from the noise of the town and sit and relax by the pool along with other guests. It was a real relaxed atmosphere. We would stay there again if we visited Key West. Excellent.
