Affordable Luxury at the Ocean Beach Club A review of Ocean Beach Club
After a bad night stay at a local hotel, we were recommended by a local to stay at the Ocean Beach Club. What a wonderful hotel! We were so pleased with this hotel from start to finish. First of all, it's located on a really nice island, Key Colony. It's quiet and clean in this part of town. We checked in late in the afternoon and the staff was very friendly and helpful, Dorothy. She made sure we knew everything about the area and the hotel. Our room was an island view, and we got a terrific rate of only $65 per night. You can't beat that! For anyone that is planning on visiting the Keys, September (after Labor Day) is a great time to travel. You can book rooms the day of and get affordable rates, as we did at the Ocean Beach Club.
We went up to the room, 3rd floor, island view. There was a nice balcony where you could see the ocean, pool, and bar/restaurant next door. Very nice view! Our room was spacious with 2 regular size beds, TV, desk, fridge, microwave, closet space and nice bathroom. My only complaint was the AC was not running before we got to the room, so it took a few minutes to cool down. Everything was so clean. The decor was nice too, very pleasant (unlike some Keys places which really cheese-up the Florida theme). The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of pillows and blankets. We slept very soundly. They had an alarm clock which was nice (not many hotels in the Keys have alrams/clocks as surprising as that may sound).
We spent the evening on the beach outside of the hotel. It was so peaceful, quiet, serene. You couldn't beat the view! We also went next door for late night drinks. How convenient! In the morning, we jumped into the hot tub. It was nice (a bit too warm for this time of year) and then into the pool which was clean and soothing. Overall, Ocean Beach Club was worth it - I would even pay regular price to stay here. Clean, comfortable rooms. Great view and pool. Perfect location and wonderful, friendly staff.
