Although we have owned a unit here since 2011 this was my first visit. This is probably the most unique place I have ever stayed! The banyan trees, especially in the courtyard area, are the largest I have ever seen! Beware though, if you park under one in the parking lot, be prepared for your vehicle to be thoroughly covered!... More

Location and atmosphere can't be beat - beautiful gardens in the very heart of old town. Modern comfortable units that provide all that you'll need to enjoy your stay in Key West. A great Tiki Bar for delicious breakfasts and lunches, and an easy walk to the best restaurants in Key West.

We ended up at this Inn by accident. The first reservation at another location in town called last minute to say they made a mistake and there was NO ROOM! They recommended Banyan Inn and we got the last room, which was described as a studio with a Murphy Bed (groan). We live in state, and the discount of 10%... More

Yes- we do readily offer the Florida resident discount and also have a repeat guest discount. Next visit be sure to mention you've stayed before! Safe Travels, Jessy More

As soon as we checked in we were welcomed with a smiling face. The check in was quick and we were off to our room. The room was a single bedroom suite with a pullout couch and a fully stocked kitchen. The only thing you need to bring in your groceries, everything else you can think of is there! The... More

The Banyan resort has everything you could want in your stay at Key West. The numerous historical properties that form the resort are situated in their own little oasis but minutes from the bustle of Duval Street and Mallory Square. It is also a stop on the ghost tour but we didnt have any paranormal activity to report ! Located... More

I stayed one night at the banyan and wish I could have stayed more. Didn't get to enjoy any of the amenities due to the nature of the visit. Spent most of the time walking on Duval Street which is a block away. The properties are well kept up. The room was awesome, had a loft suite overlooking the pool... More

We stayed two nights unit #804 a 2 bedroom suite with one bath, a challenge for two couples, do-able for short stay. The living room furniture was really uncomfortable, again two nights tolerable. Pool area was nice, but cigar and cigarette smoking was off putting. Two pools surrounding their Tiki Bar. In season I imagine it would be very crowded.... More
