The Best Western Key Ambassador Resort Inn gives guests a front row seat to the gold beaches and turquoise surf that’s made Florida a favorite vacation spot.

At the Best Western Key Ambassador Resort Inn, travelers enjoy much more than a prime location close to the sandy beaches, although that’s certainly promised. Renowned for superior customer service and embracing the reputation of the brand, from the moment guests arrive they feel like they’ve come home. Plush amenities and spacious rooms, some with phenomenal views of the ocean, are what make the start of a grand getaway.

As an added bonus, we are conveniently close to a number of attractions, such as the popular Hemingway House that demands a tour. Of course, for something a little more relaxing, guests can always take a trip to the actual Margaritaville. From surf lessons to romantic strolls, indulging in local fare or a great shopping expedition, it might always be five o’clock here, but happy hour can be defined however you like.

Special local events bring many travelers to the area, such as Fantasy Fest or the legendary Hemingway Days, which of course all focus around the famous house. The Poker Run, and the Power Boat races are a real treat, and the Best Western Key Ambassador Resort Inn, specializes in welcoming groups. Visit famous Duval Street any time of year. Or, get a closer look at the Florida waters with a fishing trip, snorkeling trip or diving. However, for a real bird’s eye view of this beautiful city, nothing compares to parasailing.

Enjoy a great location that puts you minutes from everything the city has to offer. Take advantage of the many Latin dance venues, or spend the days building sandcastles. Let our concierge help you build memories.
