Key West is not the same - it is packed with tourists from the cruise boats; we could not enjoy the shopping areas due to the crowds. The cruise boats come in and drop off over 1000 people. They are everywhere.Best Things About the Resort:The location - it is next to the first bridge into the gulf side. We love to watch the boats go by. The last time we were here, we saw all of the props for the movie True Lies going by on barges.
The pool is heated and has a sunny exposure all day. Plenty of lounge chairs.Resort Experience:A large screened in Lanai runs the full width of the unit with access from the master bedroom and living room. The Lanai has a view of the gulf, mariner and pool area.
Quite a bit of activity on the waterway as the bridge next to the resort is the first access to the gulf on the keys. Traffic going over the bridge is very noisy and continuous, you get used to it after a day or so. The noise could affect a light sleeper.
Some of the units are refurbished, we did not luck out our unit was old and in need of refurbishing.
The master bedroom is large and has a no TV, queen-size bed, two end tables, a large bureau, dressing table with mirror and bench, and one large closet with a mirrored door. The furniture is outdated. The bedroom has a rug in need shampooing.
The bathroom is very tiny - only one person can use it. It has a tub, cabinet, and large mirror.
The size of the bathroom does not make any sense, as it is located off the master bedroom and the bedroom is very large. If you have guest using the sleep sofa in the living room, the only access that they have to the bathroom is through your bedroom.
The combination living room and dining room is large. The dining area has a new good-size table with four chairs. The kitchen needs remodeling. It has full-size appliances, four-burner hotplate, dishwasher, and microwave. The kitchen area was not clean enough to satisfy us - we deep-cleaned everything, including all the dishes, which were sticky. Bowls in the cabinet still had chips in them from the last people; the cutting board had traces of cheese still on it.
The living room area has an entertainment center with VCR, 19" TV, sleep sofa, and glass-topped coffee table; the sofa is imitation leather and is not comfortable. The reclining rocker is comfortable. The entertainment center has quite a bit of storage space.
They do charge you 40 cents for any connected call on the phone system, even local and 800 numbers.
Laundry area is located on the third level. Washers are $2.00 and two dryers are $1.50. We thought the price was high.
The resort does not have any planned activities.

Our condo was very clean and comfortable. We weren't impressed when we drove up, but when we saw the view from the room (all rooms have a view), we were thrilled. There were lots of boats coming in from the Intercoastal Waterway and boats docked opposite the pool. People pull in with their boats for the night or more. It was very enjoyable.

The rooms are spacious except for the small bathrooms. Some of the dishes in the cabinet were dirty - an unpleasant discovery. The sofa and chair in the living room are upholstered in a plastic-backed fabric which gets very uncomfortable in the heat and humidity. Room air conditioners keep the rooms comfortable.
Beware of mosquitos when you go outside - they are vicious. Even a walk to the parking lot and loading a few things in the car results in a mosquito attack, and a car full of mosquitos.
Overall we enjoyed our trip to the Keys, but we could definitely do without the mosquitos. As for the resort, the staff was always friendly and helpful, but we don't intend to stay at another resort without one of the higher ratings (Gold Crown, International Rating, etc.)

Other than that, the view of the bay is nice and you can see many boats going back and forth. The staff was friendly and quick to fix anything that needed attention. There was also a drainage problem entering the resort parking lot, which was flooded the entire week we were there. Apparently IDOT will be taking care of this sometime in the future.
Our one-bedroom unit was remodeled and large enough for the three adults traveling. It is 100 miles to go to Key West, but we didn't make the trip. There are no activities sponsored by the resort at all.

This was an inn in the ski resort area. It was worn and not too clean. We would not return to this Inn. It was overpriced.
We looked in Jackson Hole and found some nice motels downtown for approx. $100. a night. We will stay in Jackson Hole next time.
