Located just outside of Old Town Key West, the Ibis Bay Resort provides a true feel of Key West with great food, fun, and excitement, while still giving you the rest and relaxation that brought you to this famous little island. This little diamond in the rough is the perfect place for you to stay for your weekend get-a-way in Key West. Enjoy friendly staff, cool rooms, and an atmosphere that make you come back for more. The welcoming staff at the Ibis Bay Resort is happy to have you as their guest. Rather than feeling like a guest, you`ll be treated as a long lost friend who`s come for a visit and you`ll never want to leave. This waterfront resort offers guests with budget-friendly accommodations while providing an upbeat atmosphere and a unique overall feel of Key West. Build in the 1950`s, this cool Waterfront Resort takes pride in the individuality that was created when the resort was initially built. The bright Key West colors mixed with the feel of the Caribbean make the Ibis Bay Resort stand out from all the rest. The Hotel Does NOT provide Roll Away Beds.

Area description
Located just outside of Old Town Key West, the Ibis Bay Resort provides a true feel of Key West with great food, fun, and excitement, while still giving you the rest and relaxation that brought you to this famous little island.

Dining

The Stoned Crab
Enjoy mouthwatering delights with the Lighthouse Restaurant`s famous secret recipe for a great time! Delicious dishes caught fresh from the Key West waters are served with fun shows from the best entertainers in town! We are the only restaurant in Key West that specializes in Fresh Stone Crabs. The Ibis Bay Resort offers many fun activities, however, if you choose to venture out and explore the island and it's world famous landmarks, sunsets, and nightlife, you are within a Conch Shell call of the ``Old Town Key West`` and it`s many shops, restaurants, and 'nighttime gathering places'.

My 50th bday & family vacation

Unique funky mid-century resort! It has everything you need, except the traffic noise from Roosevelt Ave. Booked a 2 room suite for family of 3 + Grandmother and it was a good fit. My only recommendation is to PLEASE FEED the tortoises per the sign at 11:00 AM. Fun to watch (& listen to !) them devouring their rations but for 2 days they were not fed and were rattling their empty food trays. I visited the kitchen and asked "Who's responsible for tortoise chow?" (aka kitchen scraps) The resort-wide piped in music is apropos to era and location! Really enjoyed that, especially since our room did not have the iPod docking station specified in the room accommodations. Bring hand held fish nets for kids off the dock - we saw anemone, sea stars, sea jellies and a parrot fish! On our second day Dock-to-Dish, a local CSA for seafood, set up shop near the lobby and had ocean-fresh fish & Key West pink shrimp! The kitchen prepared the shrimp in tacos and were delicious. Bring a sun hat and wear the tropical pareo provided in the room and live your Key West itinerary!

nice hotel

We had good time, but the location is not good with a family. Close to the main road and far from down town.

Not worth the money

Let's just be honest and frank since none of the other reviews are. This hotel is not worth the arm and leg they charge. It is very out dated. The rooms are very small and cheap looking. The sheets were dirty. The towels were dirty. The bathroom was disgusting. The shower was tiny and had no water pressure. The toilet was not bolted down. The air conditioner blew under the bed instead of through the room. They claim to have a beach, but they fail to mention this is a man made "beach" and is not a swimming beach - you cannot get into the water. The hotel staff is rude, and won't return your greeting. There is no coffee pot or microwave as stated. The only plus side is the free short bus ride to the common attractions and the bus driver is very friendly.

Not recommended

Shower temperature was not consistent. Shower handle just continuously turned. The temperature went from cold to Spaulding. You would have to continuously adjust the temperature. On Saturday morning the workers started around 5am. They were either loading or unloading something. Making a tremendous amount of noise. Woke you up out of a dead sleep. When said something at the front desk, they didn't seem to care. They were just interested in getting the key back. Would not stay there again.

Fairly nice

My son and I came for a quick getaway for his birthday. I visit Key West several times a year and stayed at this resort once before. My recent stay was a little nicer than the first as I was hesitant to stay here again, but it was a spur of the moment trip I didn't have a lot to choose from!! I would prefer to stay a little closer to town. It is a little pricey for the distance from town but your in Key West sooooo!!!!

prisoners

First of all the parking was horrible, they were doing alot of work outside which made it impossible to park. We were sitting on the balcony at 11pm smoking and talking and other people complained. Then management said either we go in room or get kicked out. Felt like a prisoner in the room, then management came back said being to loud in room and that the people were gonna call the cops if we didnt hold the noise down. So now locked in room and cant talk. Not a pleasent trip at all, would not stsy there again. Pool was nice, bartender was alittle rude, waited almost 10mins for her to finish eating before took drink orders. All in all felt like they didnt care if we were there or not.

It Grows On You

When we first arrived, there was a bad smell in our room, and I felt very much like this was a 2 star hotel in spite of all the fun added curiosities around the property (like the giant tortoises and the parrots). However, the smell went away within a couple of hours (must have been the air conditioner not being used in a while). Everything else was fine. There was not really a sand beach, but there are almost no beaches on key west anyway. It was still neat to walk by the water and see a small nurse shark, horseshoe crabs, and more. If you love seafood, dinner at the hotel restaurant is a must. The stuffed lobster and the steamer pot were excellent (not cheap, but still excellent). The hotel staff were mostly invisible (which is how I prefer staff to be). Overall, a great stay, especially considering the price! We would definitely go back.

Cute little place

I stayed at a larger name brand resort before I stayed here. I much enjoyed this place a lot more. Very good vibe here. Kinda a retro feel. Staff at the Stoned Crab were awesome! Only minor gripe was a lot of ants in the room. Will definitely stay here again.
