    We liked being close to the ocean and walked to Uncle Bill's where we liked our breakfast. We never had a problem parking and it was easy to drive to wherever we needed to go, e.g. Washington Mall etc.

    I have a lot of arthritis pain right now. It was impossible to walk to the stores we wanted to visit. We hope to find a place closer to the stores the next time we come. We also didn't like the shower, and no free water ($5 a bottle? really?) and in general the room was not a thrill -- but it is serviceable if you are not planning to be in it for long. For a rainy day it was not great.

    Directly across from the beach and the property has a pool, restaurant, and bar (indoor and out) with a fire pit and sandy area adjacent to live entertainment.

    The complex needs some touching up as far as painting and the outdoor pool area needs renovations to capture the “Key West” vibe for which the complex seems to be striving.
