Travel Blogs from Key West
Så er dagen kommet hvor vi endnu engang pakker vores kuffert for at drage til Key West
Det sku efter sigende være en helt fantastisk tur så det glæder vi os til. Først skal vi dog lige finde ud af det ikke er så let at fylde benzin på bilen ;)
På de store stationer skal men bruge sit postnummer for at fylde på så efter en del forsøg < …
As we had no kids with us this weekend Vera and I took advantage and made a quick overnight getaway to Key West. The weather forecast called for spotty showers and southbound we encountered such, however northbound the following day the weather was hot, hot, hot. Not a drop of rain anywhere.
We stayed at the Albury Court Hotel (http://www. …
... 8211; was surrounded by water. Even the power lines were in the water, rather than on land. We didn't really choose to visit Key West for Key West; it was more for the drive to Key West. Our expectations of Key West were very different to what we actually got when we arrived in Key West. Owen expected something similar to Exmouth, Western Australia. Hayley expected something even smaller, like Coral Bay, W.A. Apologies to the ...

... the terrain changed and became greener as we drove along Interstate #1 bisecting the Western perimeter of the Everglades National Park. Roisin pointed out a yellow diamond road sign warning the motorist of alligators crossing. Further along, a similar sign but with a picture of a deer. Despite the warnings we saw neither an alligator nor a deer. Perhaps the alligators were sleeping after a tasty deer soufflé!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Albury Court Hotel Key West
We just spent 4 nights at the Albury Court and were very pleased. Eaton Street is VERY VERY busy, so keep that in mind. Our room was directly off Eaton (facing the street) so we heard everything. However, most of the traffic died down around 9 or 10PM and started around 8-8:30AM. Forget trying to park on the street! If you are lucky enough to get a spot... DON'T MOVE. We rented a scooter for 2 days and had a BLAST! It is by far the easiest way to get around and pretty cheap. There is also a parking garage a block from the hotel that is $13 a day.
My wife and I are in Key West for our anniversary. Our usual place La Mer & Dewey House was booked. We are staying in the Albury Suite which they advertise as having a private deck for exclusive use by the suite occupants. It is not part of the room and can be accessed by anyone. In order to get ice, you must take your ice bucket, get a key (yep the ice is locked up) from the front desk, walk across the street to fill your bucket, then return the key. The continental breakfast is terrible coffee with frozen, thawed store bought pastries. Our room has an ant problem and when I reached for a coffee cup, it was dirty. The room has shutters which bang against the outside over our bed so it keeps us awake all night. We rented bikes from a place down Eaton street for the week and park them in the Albury 'designated' spot. Yesterday, there was a nasty note from the management that we must move these bikes. We bring these issues to the attention of the front desk and they really don't care. If I were you, I would look elsewhere, anywhere! It's your money, spend it someplace else!
My husband and I stayed at Albury court after returning from St. Lucia on our honeymoon. We initially chose Albury Court due to the price (we had just returned from 10 nights in St. Lucia), and proximity to the action. We absolutely loved the hotel. It was recently renovated. The decor was very tasteful. They had flat screen tvs and a mini wet bar, which we definately made use of. It was about a 3/4 mile walk to the action of Key West. They had a lovely spa pool with a contemporary style waterfall. Breakfast was good. It was served outside by the pool area. Some rooms offered private balconies. They also had some lovely suites that we saw, which had a fireplace (not sure why you need that in the keys, but it was pretty), a sitting room, and a large jacuzzi tub. These rooms were much more pricey, but worth it if you are staying for a celebratrion (birthday, anniversary, hm, etc) it is worth it..
Really Nice Place
Way more than I expected, this small inn had really clean and nice rooms plus a great little pool that has an eight foot waterfall that you can sit under.
I did not expect nice things like a flat screen TV, a really comfy bed, and a small frig with a glass door that I thought was cool. You feel like you are in a boutique hotel. The place is quiet and private. Its only a short walk to restaurants and mallory square. I stayed in July, and I thought the price was really cheap for what you got. The big name hotels and many other B&B's were $100 per night more. I can't imagine they could be that much nicer than this place. I would definately stay there again. It seemed like an undiscovered gem to me.
This was my not my first time booking a hotel reservation through the internet. After several hours of research i settled for a one bedroom suite at the Albury Court guest house mostley because of the location, and price. and i was not dissappointed at all. The photographs on the website do not do this place justice.
My wife and I stayed at the Albury for a week in June. First impression of the Inn was pretty good. Walking in, we were surprised at how clean the room was. The Inn was recently renovated, giving it a more modern look and feel. We felt that it was in a perfect location, being a walking distance to a thriving area of Duval Street (six blocks ~ 8-10 minute walk). And only a about three blocks from the boardwalk. Room service was good as well.
A friend and I stayed at the Albury Hotel for a couple of nights, and found it a secret gem. It didn't look much from the outside, but it has been recently refurbished. The rooms, if a little small, were clean and decorated in a very colonial style, fitting of Key West.
Great New Room
What an awesome place to go for a couple. We stayed in the Treetop getaway. It was such a pleasure. The 2 flat screens we a great plus. Beds were very comfortable and room was exceptionally clean. Way more than we expected. We walked down to Duval and took a cab back at the end of the evening and it only cost about 5 dollars. Out of the hustle and bustle but plently close to go and enjoy.
We stayed at the brand new Albury Court for 3 nights over a long weekend at the beginning of April. It is not a typical hotel setting, in that there are several two-story cottage-type buildings with several rooms in each cottage, each with it's own private entrance. Most rooms have their own private balconies or porches with chairs and some offer fireplaces. At least one of the cottages was still in the midst of renovations.
An Old Town Gem at A Great Price
Wow! We stayed at Albury Court after having been "upgraded" from Budget Key West. While I cannot comment on the accomidations at Budget Key West, Albury Court (directly across the street) is a jewel worthy of praise and distinction. Fantastic location (we had friends staying "On Duaval" who were farther away from all the action than us) Then there is the brand new bathrooms, wet bar, small but adequate refridgerator and...get this.. Flat screen, wall mounted TV! The pool and free breakfast complete your stay in which if you preper the "real" key west and not some chain hotel you will fall in LOVE Albury Court. Will stay again and again!
