Perfect location To stay in the Keys and visit the islands
The Wifi was very slow in the rooms and more could have been made of the bar area in the evenings.
It was perfect for a day trip to the Keys and the surrounding area.
I have stayed at Tropical Cottages several times and it seems to have become nicer every time. This is a great location if you like any kind of activity on the Keys.
Le site et l'ambiance tropicale!
Electric plugs did not work, patio untidy, we swept it, everything untidy and unloved.pop up waste in basin did not work. Room 8
Wifi connection wasn't strong in room, kept cutting off and didn't work at all with some phones.
Rooms were spacious enough for us four friends who were on a roadtrip from Miami to Key West. Very clean cottage with powerful shower and adequate kitchen. Unfortunately didn't get a chance to make full use of facilities (like outdoor bar and hammocks) since we were only staying for one night but definitely would return!
The tiki bar didn't actually sell alcohol, but you could bring your own and enjoy it all the same.
The private outdoor bathroom and shower were a great feature!
All we wanted was a central location with beds, since being in The Keys is not about staying in your room. Beds were comfortable.
The place is an older facility and needs renovations. The staff did the best they could with what they has to work with.
The staff was warm, extra friendly and helpful. We enjoyed relaxing by the tiki bar.
We had to go home to the snow
Clean !!! Outside huge tiki bar where everybody staying in cottages meets with no reservations or bartender..you bring your own...flat screen,music lots of stools, sofa ,hammock and nobody to complain because all the guests are there socializing..
Coffee cups in unit were too small and no hair dryer provided.
Comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.
It would have been nicer if the loud dumpster exchange had not happened at 7am. The wi-fi signal could be stronger. The bathroom door could use planing so as not to stick upon opening.
Low-key, friendly, small, no pretensions. We had a bedroom and a fold-out couch, bath w/ shower, kitchenette, delightful front porch. The breakfast arrangements were coffee only, set out at the tiki bar, and it was a great time to socialize with the other guests. We brought sweet rolls for all to share a few times. The trees are lovely and give nice shade; the hammocks are nice. Staff is friendly and cheerful.
Cottages to close together, backed up to bank and dumpster was right behind our "patio", very tight parking, no privacy or beach access.
Cottages were cute.
Location is on a dark road, with no boundry or fences. Cottages are antiquated. We were in#1 the one in the photo Large. Trash container was less but than ten feet ft from the door. Place did not feel secure especially at night I
Proximity to Sombrero beach. About ten minutes
We liked the friendly staff, the morning coffee and the cute tiki bar--and, nice towels.
Cottage and bathroom were very, very old and toilet didn't work well
Close to everything. Quiet and private.
Place is very dated, probably could use upgrades throughout. The toilet was extremely hard to flush. The bathroom was adequate but everything was so squashed in there that you had to watch your step. The shower curtain rods were rusted beyond description.
The value for the money was good. Place was clean.
Problem with toilet, not flushing and leaking round the pan. Seems to be a common problem here, would be the only thing putting me off a return stay.
No heat which would not normally be a problem but it was unusually very cold. They didn't even have space heaters. Our toilet didn't flush properly either.
the "kitchenette" in our (tiny) deluxe cabin was a microwave and a toaster, in-room toilet and shower had no roof, the patio looked liked like a junk yard and had to be shared with neighbours (which was not mentioned), dilapidated sitting area in front of house, no wifi in room, a lot of noise from road and nearby airport - 50% overpriced
nicely and tastefully furnished
Funky that the bathroom was outside, outdoor shower is always nice but outdoor toilet??? It rained and was windy and chilly!!
The uniqueness of the place
The DVD player in the TV didn't work.
The exterior could use some TLC. Tiles busted and base trim missing in spots and some drywall damage. New bathrooms... Nice.
Value and easy to work with staff. Comfortable clean beds. Old keys well used cottages.
Have to say the guy who cleans and stuff there, very creepy.. not very friendly either. I think he just took the job to have a job, but if you are gonna be in that kind of setting have a better attitude.
Pleasantly surprised. Local kitty joined us too. There are a few local beaches if you want to save yourself a drive into Key West. Talk to the woman who checks you in..she is super nice and will give you discount coupons.
Ran out of coffee. but I did get a good cup anyway, outside in the tiki hut
Loved the outdoor bathroom!
