Historical Traveler Reviews La Te Da Hotel Key West
Best Value-way fun!
Due to the fact that we loved the bar on our last trip, my husband and I decided to stay here for this visit. We called directly and got a way better rate than on the internet ($95 a night). We thought this was really worth the money. We stayed in room #33-upstairs and away from the bar. Thought we might have trouble sleeping, but it was great. The staff was so fun! Doug the bartender is funny, polite, and has great advice on where to eat, party, get naked. The TVs are small, but when we came back from "crawlin' Duval", we spent so much time with the staff and regulars-we didn't need to watch it. The desserts from the restautrant are wonderful. Atlantic ocean is 3 blocks away, and you are far enough down from the night life, that it is calm and quiet after 11pm. "Private" beach behind LaMar house is open with bar and just two minutes away on foot. I've stayed on Roosevelt-way to far, Blue Marlin-same price not half as nice, and Budget Key West-THE WORST---this hotel is worth the money and romantic. We are done looking for places to stay on the island. This is it. REMEMBER- we have not stayed at the $250-$400 a night hotels. We figure-why bother. This hotel is for middle-class couples.
Loved La Te Da
Just got back from one night at La Te Da. We stayed in room #19 ($121 /night) which is located directly off of the main outdoor dining room. We thought it may be a bit noisy but between the din of the air conditioner and the television we really could not hear very much. Check in was very smooth. The room was quite large and had two queen beds with nice hard wood floors. The bathroom was enormous and had a open shower but no bath and was spotless. There was a mini refrigerator as well! From 4-7 p.m. there was a disco happy hour with free mini burgers and hotdogs! The only thing that I found strange was that on our last day we wanted to extend our stay for one more day so we asked if there was any more vacancy for a second night. The gentleman at the desk informed us that there was a room available for $95 but housekeeping had not gotten to it yet. When we asked when it would be ready, he told us that he didn't think they would clean it that day at all. It didn't make sense that we were told about the room and then told no after? We were left scratching our heads about that and booked into another guest house for our last night, though we would have loved to stay another at La Te Da.
Nice clean and comfortable rooms
It is a very nice old fashioned hotel, and the deluxe rooms quite good. The place was spotlessly clean and the staff were all very accomodating. The only complaint is that rooms close to the bars and restaurant can be noisy late into the night, as the bar/cabaret is very popular. The pool is not huge, but attended to daily and is sparkling. I'd stay here again.
Great location but.........
La Te Da is in a central location to all the sites. The outside bar and restaurant staff was great, the desk staff was not to helpful and seemed put out by questions. My room was great. It was very clean, but between the street noise and the banging of dishes/glasses at the bar and restaurant, I averaged 3 hours of sleep per night. My room was basically 2 steps off the dining room floor. The noise was constant from sunrise till 2am.
We just returned from our vacation in the Keys and had a two night stay booked at La Te Da. We absolutely loved our room. One thing I wanted to mention before I forgot were the rates. They were one of the few rooms that didn't increase their rates due to Thanksgiving. Anyhow, we had a deluxe room that opened right on to the pool deck. The rooms were large, clean and tastefully decorated. The staff was friendly and laid back. I should mention the Thanksgiving Dinner that we had at La Te Da. Being from Canada we go all out for Thanksgiving Dinner and that means real Turkey! We ordered the Thanksgiving Dinner for $24.95 which included an appetizer, main course and dessert. The main course was pressed turkey roll. Good thing we were in a good mood since the meal made us laugh. Not cool..... I would stay there again but just not eat at the restaurant. They do have a great full continental breakfast with eggs/toast/potatoes. This was really good. Also, I did notice one of the other reviews mentioned something about charges to a credit card. We did not run into any problems with our cards.
Great Little Property on Duval
Outstanding little hotel on Duval. Staff bent over backwards to help in every opportunity. Extra towels, no problems. Fix the bathroom, johnny on the spot. Two great bars, with excellent entertainment. Nice heated pool and private sunning deck upstairs. We enjoyed the access to walking Duval several times a day. This hotel is prefectly located to the Southern Most Point, Lighthouse, Hemmingway House, easy walk to the Duval Craw. Don't miss Mallory Square celebration, was fun every night. I recommend this property and I am picky about my stays.
Don't use a Credit Card here!
Check your credit card for unauthorized charges. We did not stay at La te friggin Da, but did enjoy brunch...until I found over $250 of charges from La Te Da on my card. This was June 6, 2004. I called every week for a month...NO explanation and no return calls. Bill at the front desk even mentioned that this had happened before - 3 times & he has been there less than a year!
Super, thanks for asking!
My husband and I stayed here May 2003 and have nothing but great things to say! We chose the inexpensive room, which was adequate, roomy enough and cozy. King size bed, small bathroom, mini-fridge and an exposed "closet area". Who spends time in the room anyways? Full breakfast every morning, not the continental stuff. The bar was awesome and kicking every night. We didn't get to see the show upstairs because it was SOLD OUT! It's very popular! Next time, we'll make reservations for it. But the facilities are absolutely adorable. Great pool. Nude sundeck isolated from the pool. Only two bad things: 1) they do not have a parking lot, it's street parking, but we didn't have TOO much trouble finding parking, and 2) they're on the other end of Duval, away from the nightlife. But this also was fine. We took a cab to the action. Highly recommend it!
Feb. 2004 trip
My husband and I just got back from a wonderful week in Key West! The whole trip was fantastic, but we would not recommend the hotel. It had been described as exquistely rennovated, but we felt it needed much more refurbishing. Our room was the Deluxe. The bathroom was tiny and needed caulking and a new shower, floor and new accessories etc. King size bed was fine, but not enough space for clothes. We were upgraded to the Luxury room since someone wanted ours. This room was lovely, but still needed some bathroom work. We were happier in this room though. Kind of a noisy area of Duval though. The bar was great and also the restaurant. Not much in the form of ammenities, such as, newspaper, taking your luggage. Also, breakfast was included and it was very good, but the same thing each day, no choice. All in all a wonderful trip and we will go back again next year!
La Te Da....Te Da!

... 3rd night here because we have to get the van back at 11am on friday morning (or $50 every half hour we're late!) and its about a 4 hour drive from Sugarloaf. So we've decided to go back to Key Largo again. The resort was so immaculate and the view so special, that it would be great to have our last night in the van there. Also it was miles nicer than this KOA is.
Kids went for a swim when we got back, and then we had snack supper in the van.
... luxury holiday homes. Even though the town of key west is a tad run down, the weather and palm trees make it worthwhile. Once we set up camp, which I might add was tough in the heat we had a few hours free. Me and another girl decided to make the most of it and went for a run. It wasn't super fast with 74% humidity but definitely made us feel like we had achieved something. We saw lots of really run down almost trashy areas and ...

During the afternoon we took the Old Trolley Train further along Key West to the beach area. The beaches are flat and rocky due to the distant coral reef and manmade beaches have been made with sand brought in from the Bahamas. ...

You have to try and see the video of RaRa and the paddle board. I think it is a sideways picture, but I couldn't figure out how to rotate a video.....(RaRa was busy polishing the boat outside on the deck)

This weekend I took the bus to Key West. It is a small town completely to south of Florida. Located 207 km southwest of Miami and 170 miles northwest of Havana, it's the south terminal of road Nš1. This is a major cruise port. Key West has a regional airport and a strategic naval base. The city has an historic district.
