Old Key West Resort

Which rooms are considered "Hospitality House" rooms. Just 11 - 14 across the road or others also. Thanks!

Thanks so much! We won't be there until August . Enjoy. My dd and I stayed last year five days at SSR and OKW. We were in bldg 14. Close to everything but our room had some housekeeping issue. Well alot. They took care of them so we are hoping for a better room. My hubby never stayed there and wants to try.

Just back from a stay in OKW.
We were first given a one bedroom in the 40 building on Turtle Pond road, and it was disgusting. We opened the door to the room and it smelled heavily of smoke.
Back to check in.
They then gave us 3325(?)...a one bedroom. Nicer view. Golf course and canal area. Although..again housekeeping wasn't great. The floors were not that clean (from the black on our socks..and the "sticky" stuff on the floor in front of fridge). Also..finger prints and drool type marks on the glass doors to the terrace. REALLY?...I couldn't believe they didn't wipe the glass down. Once you pulled up the shakes you could see that. I mean I took some glass cleaner and did it myself. That being said, I think housekeeping has been poor in the resorts recently. We had two nights at the Poly prior to our cruise..and it it was DISGUSTINGY dirty.
I'm for the first time..considering staying off site. Never thought I'd say it..but for what the rates are, I expect it to be at least as clean as the local Holiday Inn.

Thank you so much for the outlined map. I can decide where to request as I won't have car.

I stayed in Bldg. 14 last August and it was shabby and light above shower was loaded with bugs. My guess was crickets. They had to reclean the room it had dust layers and the light fixture was beyond neglect. I think I may request a room across the street 16 or 62 in that area.

Giving it a second chance as I liked the pool area and grounds and the manager did work on fixing the issues. She wanted to move me but after a five days at SSR and moving to OKW I had just unpacked and didn't want to move again. After all was fixed. I had to take all the previous occupants belonging and papers they left in the night table I found. Bills etc with names on it. Housekeeping didn't even check the drawer.

Hi again! Looking at the map, what is a "Grand Villa" (outlined in yellow)?
How do I know if I have a HH booking? If it doesn't say anything, is it pretty safe to assume that I don't?

I am going for marathon weekend, so I want to be close to the entrance, prefer not too many stairs, and am staying in a 2 bedroom suite (or joined 1br + studio). I am looking at the buildings at the top of the map, so am I barking up the right tree?

Thanks a million!

(tried to quote the map but I don't have enough posts to be allowed images yet!)

We just got back from a studio on Old Turtle Pond (Building 32). The room was clean and quiet and was right near the transportation station. Only drawback was that it was a good hike to the Hospitality House so we wound up taking the bus to get there.

I just spent 10 days in a studio in building 35 at Old Key West It was right across from the bus stop and the walk to the Hospitality House was fine I had requested that building for the water view but the water levels were so low the pond was down 8 to 10 feet And we were surrounded by a huge palm tree But my daughter loves palm trees so she liked reading her Nook out there

I'm pretty sure this is true. We've been going to old key west since I was about 8 or 9. My grandparents have their dvc points there and bought the first year or so. It is not the most exciting resort ever, but we love being there. It is a relaxed place and we have tons of happy memories there Enjoy your trip!

Lenth of bus ride to MK?

How long is the bus ride to MK? Also how long does it take for the bus to loop through the entire resort? I am thinking that this would be the longest bus ride out of all the parks?

We usually plan on 30 minutes from our stop to the theme park. Lots of times it is less than that once the bus arrives at the bus stop. Lately we've been getting on at South Point. But the last trip we got on at Millers Road. MK is only about 8-10 min from OKW once you leave the resort. Epcot is even closer.
