Ambrosia House Key West
ReviewsMy husband and I stayed at the Ambrosia in Key West Florida over the holiday weekend. We booked our room well in advance because we have stayed there in the past and know how quickly they fill up. Our last vacation to Florida it was nothing but resort after resort. This was nice and something different than the Hyatt Key West or the beach front gem Pier House. Although I did find the Southernmost on the Beach resort hotel was right on the water and white sands of South Beach with similar pricing as other lodging that had only street views, but they had been sold out for this weekend. It stands to reason that the reason they book up is because they are such a great place to stay. We love the hotel. The majority of the grounds are tended to and covered with tropical plants. We have spent hours just meandering around the property with a glass of wine and sitting in different areas. The room we booked at the Ambrosia Key West was as nice as the one we had gotten last time. I am saying this because it is nice to know that it is not a fluke. We would stay again at the Ambrosia anytime. We would also recommend not renting a car, they have limited parking for those who drive down but the hotel is so close to Duval Street that you can walk to everything. It is not an expensive cab ride from the Key West Airport anyway.
The Ambrosia Key West is the nicest Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed at. We stayed at the Days Inn because we wanted something simple and cheap on our last vacation. I've leaned that travel and cheap are not two words that belong together. The Duval Inn was a good compromise for a past vacation. The island style Breakfast in the morning starts you off in the right direction each and every day. Tropical local fare nourished us before our daily dives on the open seas. The rooms were large enough to house all of our dive equipment and still feel like a luxurious place to stay. After seven days of vigorous sea life and evening meals at various different restaurants on Duval Street, which we walked to every night, we felt like real Key West residents. I can only imagine the every day lives of the natives. I think we'll stay in a little vacation rental next time so we can get a better idea of what it's like to actually live there. We can’t make the move just yet so I guess we will keep coming down to the Ambrosia Key West on vacation until we can afford a cottage of our own.
