After a fantastic morning in the Everglades we continued south towards the Keys and Key West. It took us 2 and a half hours to reach Key West. I just loved the drive along US1. Fascinating and amazing how they were able to link the islands together. Rich had done the trip before but still enjoyed the drive. When we were nearing Key West the heavens opened for a downpour. We then drove around the island before finally finding the Old town. We parked ...
... House. The harbor is filled with boats of all kind. Small shops, restaurants, and bars line all the streets. We ate lunch at Pepe's Cafe, as recommended by my sister. We arrived just a few minutes late for breakfast, but the lunch menu was great. We both had soup and sandwiches, and I had the best Bloody Mary I've ever had! After lunched we walked back to Greene Street to get a piece of the world's largest key lime pie, but we were too ...
... One is a very 'Artsy" place(you will see from the photo), the other is right on the harbor where you can even see our boat slip.
It is fun to wake up and drink coffee waiting for the sunrise and then in the afternoon we do the same thing waiting for the sunset. The sunsets are just awesome.........better than anywhere else I've ever been. I know we are supposed to watch the sunset from "mallory square" but by ...
... ready to check out. Things went smoothly, including lugging my 40+ pound bag down the circular staircase, until I went to check out. Somewhere between the room, the car and the office, I had dropped one of the room keys. I went back and looked, and, of course, I didn't find it. The lady in the office told me there was a $25 charge for replacing a lost key. Yikes! Dan went back to look for the key and, naturally, he found it in my purse where I had dropped ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ambrosia Key West Tropical Lodging
Ambrosia too is GREAT! Stayed in Ambrosia Too in Nov -03. Very nicely decorated both inside and exterior. Very clean! Romantic with palmtrees and flowers, birds and two pools not very large but one is lit up at night and you can take a dip in the evening if you don´t make to much noice.. Everywhere you look you will notice little details like scented candels and small statues etc. Our room (poolside room) was elegant and clean with a nice private bath and lots of thick towels.The furnishing was in light ash and the floor in marble. good A/C and a fridge and coffee maker with free coffe and water bottles. Ironing board in closet and robes to lend during the stay. Beach towels at reception free of use. Staff wery friendly and discret and service minded. Breakfast was really good with fresch tropical fruits, different cereal and yougurth and coffe/the. Bagels, toast and muffins, and different juices. We had no problem with parking outside, the staff helped us. Rate 150 usd due to a holiday, otherwise it would have been 130usd /night (late nov) Perfect location in Old town. Loved it!
Consistently refreshing & comfortable
frequent traveler on business.... always stay @ the ambrosia.... rooms alway neat, clean, & bright staff pleasant & helpful and very inviting on a couple of occassion have commented on improving some of the rooms and to my surprise the ambrosia has come through! for you animal lovers, highly recommended request jungle room for some xcitement!!!
Don't expect courtesy
My problem was with the staff. The room was very nice, however, the a/c unit caught on fire the first day. The rest of Ambrosia was booked, so we were on our own to find a place to stay. (with our soot and smoke-filled clothing) We even had to pay for our own taxi to the next lodging! The office lady was very unhelpful and not friendly whatsoever considering the circumstances. We go to KW two to three times a year, and would have stayed again regardless of the unfortunate circumstance had it not been for the rudeness and unwillingness to help of the staff.
Went there in Nov 2002. Were scheduled for 4 nights left first thing in the morning after the first night. We stayed in the original Ambrosia House. It was TERRBILE. We got in late so they left the keys for us. We had a room upstairs. The room was like staying at your grandmothers house. Everything was old. The AC didn't work and the ceiling fan clicked so we were dying of heat. The bathroom was mobbed with ants and the nieghbors dog barked most of the night. It is also on a busy intersection so the noise from the cars and motorcycles was very loud all night. The "pool and hottub" are jokes. The pool could hold one person and the hottub seriously was the size of my bathtub at home. Maybe Ambrosia II is better but this place was so bad that I actually cried. We left the next am and stayed at the Ocean Key which was absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend. Once night we were out for dinner and walked by the Ambrosia House and just laughed about how bad it was. SAVE YOUR MONEY
Heaven on Earth
The Ambrosia Key West is just a piece of Heaven on Earth. The staff was so accomodating and hospitable. The rooms and grounds are absolutely beautiful. Close enough to walk anywhere in the old town and Duval Street but still secluded enough to be peaceful. We enjoyed our stay so much and plan to go back as soon as possible. Our sweet dog was made as welcome as we were and that is very important to us. We highly recommend this place to anyone who ask.The Conners from Shelby, NC
Ambrosia II is great!
We had a wonderful stay! Everyone was very helpful and had lots of good ideas. The suites were beautiful and quite private. We will be back soon!
Great place !
Had a great stay at The Ambrosia House in Key West. Nice accomodations (we were in the Ambrosia Suite) and good breakfast by the pool. Tina was helpful in directing us to places to go and to dine - and even gave us a great idea for a place to SCUBA dive that we would not have known about. We would definitely stay there again. The diving in Key West was great; beautiful reefs and two wrecks that were interesting.
Sweet Ambrosia (Too)
We stayed in Katie's Kottage at Ambrosia Too across the street from Ambrosia House. The cottage is situated at the far end of the property where the tropical foliage gave us welcomed seclusion. The refreshing dip pool, cozy seating areas and artistic flourishes helped us feel right at home. The best part, however, was the people who lovingly man this B & B. Kudos to owner Kate and to Annie, Marilyn and Tina. They are the heart and soul of sweet Ambrosia. If it were up to me, I'd go back in a New York minute!
A fabulous place to stay. Great rooms, the grounds are lovely, the staff wonderful, the pool heavenly, the location is perfect. Just off Duval Street, but nice and quiet. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Key West.
A Cozy getaway tucked away in tropical foilage
The Ambrosia house is a comfortable and above average compund in the heart of Old town Key West. One block off Duval on Fleming at the corner of Simonton.
We stayed in December for about $100 a night per couple. we stayed one night in Bob's place( 2 floors 1 bedroom and pull out) and 5 nights in KT's cottage(2 floors 2 bedrooms). both were nicely decorated with all the amenities including a continental breakfast . a small heated pool right outside the door of each cottage. and a hammock underneath the tropical foilage. Bob's place has a second floor private deck and the hammock is located there.
The staff is extremely polite and accomodating. They offered us a discounted rate to stay the night at Bob's place because we were arriving a day early but after midnight.
