I have stayed with Keys at Shirdi and Pune before this, and both those experiences were very good. Because of good prior experience, I did not give a second thought when I booked our rooms at the Keys Hotel in Tirupati. The location itself is pretty good. The hotel is just about 3-4 km from the Alamelu Manga Temple and about 6 km from the Govindarajaswamy temple. Even to go to Tirumala, this hotel is just about 1 km away from the start of the ghat. When we reached the hotel, our first surprise was that the card access to our room didn't work. We had to use a physical key to open the room each time. The rooms are pretty spacious and comfortable. Having settled in the room, we realized that there was no facility to make a cup of tea in the room. The tea/coffee sachets and kettle, which are standard in 3 star and higher hotels these days weren't available in the room. This was quite surprising since we've never faced this in any hotel across the country, and never in a Keys hotel before this. We had to request for a kettle and some tea sachets. The kettle which was sent was dirty, probably not cleaned after the previous use. There were no milk powder sachets sent. We asked for the kettle to be cleaned and replaced. The cleaned kettle never came back during our 2 night stay. Having reached late in the evening, we decided to have dinner in the hotel itself, and went to the in-house restaurant for dinner. That was clearly a bad choice. The food was really poor and barely palatable. The scaled 'Andhra Meals' did not have pickle, gongura etc. Which are standard in any Andhra meal anywhere else. We decided to avoid eating in the hotel after that. At 6. 25 am next morning, there was a ring on the doorbell to deliver tea sachets, without a kettle in the room !! Again, there was no milk powder sent. My in-laws, who stayed in the next room were luckier than us. They at least got a kettle and some tea sachets. When they asked for milk powder, they were told that the store being close, milk powder could not be delivered. We abandoned all hopes of having tea in the room, and simply headed down for the breakfast 'buffet'. The breakfast spread could not really be described as a buffet. Since we were in a hurry to get to Tirumala and get into the line for darshan, we just gobbled what we could and left early. Once again, getting 3 cups of coffee took about 15 minutes and at least 4 reminders. This was despite the restaurant being barely half full. That evening, when my in laws asked for some more tea sachets, they were told that each room got only 2 in a day, and they couldn't get more. Next morning at breakfast, once again the coffee took ages to come. The toaster wouldn't work, so we could not have toast. Overall, the staff didn't seem interested in making the stay enjoyable for any guest. After this stay, I don't think I'm going to stay with Keys again. For people visiting Tirupati, I would strongly recommend not to stay at the Keys.
My visit to this hotel in the month of December 2016 with family for temple purpose. Destination was excellent. Location of the hotel was located centre the city was easy to locate was near to bus stop. Appearance of the hotel was excellent from interior and exterior. Check in check out was on time.

Amenities were available in the hotel was in working condition Food I had taken from the hotel was excellent in quality and quantity and they provided complimentary breakfast.

The room tariff was started around Rs. 3000 per day. Room was spacious, neat and comfortable, has an AC, TV and geyser facility in the room. Staff were good, polite, very caring and co-operative and there was 24 hours staff service. I stayed there with family for temple visit. It is a 3 star hotel, located near to the bus stand and very convenient to find out. Hotel appearance was very good and the interior was very well decorated. The room was booked by direct and there was no problem while check-in and check-out. They provided food, the quality and taste of the food was very good. If required they arrange a vehicle for sightseeing places, but there were no activities. The hotel room tariff was value for money and it is recommendable to others.
