A very lovely place. The room was great and very nice staff. The breakfast was good poolside. Very quaint.

Location couldn't be better. Lots of outdoor space for relaxing. Our room was very comfortable and had nice design features with hardwood floors and exposed ceiling joists. The area was quiet, but only a few minutes walk to Duval Street. All-in-all, it was perfect!

I booked two rooms and at the time there were only one king and one queen available. We took the queen and our friends took the king, right next door to each other (rooms 10 & 11). For a three night stay they spent a total of $200 more than we did...that's all. Their room was spacious, had a full sized bathroom, a closet, a refrigerator, a Keurig coffee pot, a full sectional sofa....it was beautiful. Now, on to our queen matchbox...you have to be careful when you sit on the toilet as you can easily hit your head on the wall in front of you and bump your arm on the sink to the right of you as the bathroom is so small. There is no closet (we were told the 3 pegs on the wall are all we get. Put some more stinkin' pegs on the wall then!). There was no refrig, no coffee pot, no sitting area...very disappointing room indeed. We couldn't wait to get out of there. Also, of interest. Our friends with the king room and we were sitting on the porch and talking about the massive difference in the rooms, especially for the very minor price, when a lady from another queen room walked out and heard us talking. She stopped and said, "I was so disappointed when I saw the room that I cried." I guess we weren't alone.

We stayed in room 15 a one bedroom cottage near the pool. The rooms are very spacious and clean. There was plenty of room for our two young children, my husband and myself in the cottage, at no time did we feel cramped or crowded. All of the staff is extremely welcoming and helpful from front desk to housekeeping. And the resident cat Jordan was a delight for the kids. They serve a nice continental breakfast in the morning by the pool with muffins, bagels, cereals, fruit, hard boiled eggs, etc. In the afternoon iced tea, books and towels are provided as well. The hotel is very conveniently located a block off Duval and a short walk to Mallory Square, so you are close to everything but not right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. It was a great hotel that I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Small but cozy and charming room. Staff was very pleasant. There was a giant white cat around to keep the guests company. Only a couple blocks from duval. Might be slightly over priced for what you get, but overall I'd recommend this place to a friend.

We had a great stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It was smaller than expected, especially for the price. Also, there was some noise during the night ad our room was right on the front porch next to the street. Everything else about this hotel was great. Location was on a nice street close to nightlife. The hotel had a very peaceful outdoor place to hang out. A well stocked and balanced breakfast was served here. Overall, this hotel met and exceeded our needs. Just wish the price wasn't so high.

Location is great, running parallel to Duval Street so that it's a short walk away to the great restaurants and bars along that road. The parking lot takes a bit to find if you haven't visited before. The rooms were nice and the service very accommodating.

Taking the seaplane out to the Tortugas today! Have you done this while on your trip to Key West too? It's a beautiful way to get here and you get to see turtles and ship wrecks from the air on the way over. It's a nice way to spend a Saturday. We can help you get out here too, just let us know when you make your reservation. 800.549.4430

Saturday Key West Kookiness & Art Sculpture Parade. We're constantly amazed by our little town. The creativity, enthusiasm and love of art fill us with laughter and joy! Papio's Kinetic Sculpture Parade debuted down Duval street this morning and we really loved these human powered inventions!

Twas the day before Christmas in old Key West, when Jordan del Gato laid down for a rest. He hung out in the garden sunbathing with ease, dreaming of chasing lizards and relaxing as he pleased.... 
Merry, merry Christmas everyone from all of us at our Historic Key West Inns & Hotels ! 🎄🎉

We've decided that it's about time for an afternoon nap in the sun at Smather's Beach in Key West. What do you think, good idea?
