My wife and I stayed there two years ago. The rooms were clean but a bit dated. All adults. Excellent location near middle of Duvall Street but far enough off of it you don't hear any noise. The staff was courteous and the owner would take time out to chat with us as well. BYOB since there is no bar.... More

Our room was very nice. The pool is small, but nice for a dip to cool off. The staff was not overly friendly but they were accommodating. Don't stay here if wild, noisy parties are in your plans. They have a no cell phone rule in the public areas which explains the dirty looks, when I was on the phone... More

What happened!?! We first stayed here 3 years ago and fell in love with this little inn with its private grounds and lush landscaping and great location, (2 blocks off Duval). However, it is visibly apparent that the Heron House needs some TLC. Rooms needs some serious updating, (worn out towels, wall paper peeling, lumpy mattress, dripping faucet, TV that... More

Nice grounds, friendly staff. We stayed in a garden room the faucets dripped and the trim in bathroom needed to be finished. The location is nice and close to Duval street ,just a short 2 block walk. The cost was a little pricey for what you got.

Location was great and grounds were very private and filled with lush tropical landscaping. Nice sun deck with lounge chairs but none around the pool deck due to limited space. The atmosphere is definitely geared towards the retired type of crowd as noted by the "no cell phone" signs posted everywhere and some of the staff could use some happy... More

We arrived around 7pm, a clerk checked us in.Our poolside room smelled so bad and sharply of mold/mildew, but we thought once the air kicks in it will go away. Not so, we both developed horrible headaches, did not sleep, air conditioner noisy, ineffective, cracked floor tiles under a dusty carpet, fan in bathroom super noisy. Requested and got a... More

Just one block off Duval Street, but quietly situated behind beautiful landscaping and fencing, the Heron House has become our inn of choice in Key West. The rooms are clean and cool, the bedding fresh and comfortable, the pool area quiet and shaded. Breakfast each morning includes a daily hot special and stacks of newpapers. The staff is pleasant and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Heron House the end of Feb. 2014 with another couple. We went to Key West to see the famous Great Lakes singer, Pat Dailey at Sloppy Joes. Both couples had junior suites with balconies. The rooms were very large. One room was rather grand but with a smaller balcony. The other suite was... More

It has a beautiful courtyard, lovely cottages, and a nice pool. The courtyard is private and secure from the public. It had bistro tables and wicker chairs. Many guests sat outside with glasses of wine prior to evening out. Everyone was friendly. The interior of the cottages are darling! Very clean, updated, and comfortable. Heron offered a full breakfast each... More
