        Cleanest linen experience, a big plus.

        The mattresses lacked comfort.

        Nice hotel, big rooms, terrasse, pool area, free breakfast offered (which was good), nothing to complain about.

        The pool was decent enough, and the room was newly renovated

        the breakfast was insuffient

        I liked the size of the rooms and the kitchen being available , the AC.., daily breakfast...

        The " privilege fee" that we were charged , the quality of kitchen appliances, the unkind mumbling of the breakfast lady when cleaning after the guests who did not tip , the TV remote hardly working ...I would rather lose the breakfast and privilege fees and pay less next time. Thank you.

        Bed was horrible, ants and cockroaches in the room. Charged us for a extra night and we can't get anyone to answer the phone to correct it.

        I arrived at 10pm and the office was closed and needed to call a number to check in. Also after checked in I tried to get help for the internet problem nobody retuned a call back. Wifi was included in the price, and I didn't get to use it at all. What an inconvenience service who someone has a late arrive schedule!

        First room given was filthy, Bed not made, dirty towels every where. second room, tv's did not work. Third room, ok. only one tv worked and since I have to watch tv to go to sleep, had to sleep on love seat. Would not recommend this hotel. Horrible,

        Obviously the price was right, however you get what you pay for. The staff was very nice during our entire trip. They call it a resort, although I am not sure why. (Btw, there is a $13 resort fee) The room was large with a full size refrigerator and a view of the canal. However, the view is only visible from when you enter the room, as the balcony is on the back side of the building that faces the parking lot. Since we were out of the room most of the time doing something fun, the room was tolerable and saved us some money.

        The front wall a/c unit did not work and there were sugar ants in the kitchen and bathroom. The toilet had stains in it and some of the baseboard tiles were falling loose. The front door was made of metal and there was rust at the base where we could see light from the outside coming in. They had a band at the pool on the weekend which we thought would be nice. Unfortunately, it seemed more like a bad karaoke night. The clientele at the pool were pretty rowdy too, not great for a family. The management could do a lot to spruce this place up starting with cleaning the elevator and painting over the graffiti. Bleach the mold from the balcony floor. Clean or replace the toilets and fix the door kick plates. oh yeah, get rid of the ants.

        Friendly staff, willing to help solve the many many problems you encounter eventhough they don't have much to work with.

        The rooms are a disaster, they are in terrible shape and dirty, I won't stay here again. Common areas are dirty as well. Needs a make up immediately, just knew from a local that the property is in foreclosure and in the hands of the bank, that explains it all.

        We have gone to Sombrero off an on for the last 16 years. This time it seems lacking on maintenance on the rooms. (glass separating from slider door frame--dangerous) Late in the day you want to use the pool to cool off and relax, employees show up with lots and lots of kids, not good if you are paying to relax and swim. Our most disliked factor of the stay was the pool problem. Otherwise it was nice but we found another place that we feel will be suitable for our next stay in the keys.

      • Group of friends
        7.0

        quiet and relaxing

        Yes staff was not that friendly and as a person who works with customers this is very important to me anywhere I go. For example the night we arrive we didnt know how to get in because they were remodeling we try to get the attention of a male personel who ignored us and later we identify him as being the receptionist. I would never ignore a customer no matter what.

        Being by the canal.

        Laundry Facilities/area (& trying to find the soap)???

        Good facilities: kitchen with all we need (household appliances, tableware, soap) and large room with living!

        The internet connexion was not good

      • Older travelers

        I liked that we had a seperate sleeping area, and that we had a sitting area with acess to a stove & fridge.

        I did'nt like the fact we had to go up four flights of stairs to our room, The resort is older and could use some updating

        Although the Motel is older it was clean and comfortable.

        The front air conditioner was noisy. I stayed in room 221 and the internet acess was not very good. I could only get on line if I stayed near the patio doors in the bedroom.
