After a Panama Canal cruise we decided it would be nice to continue the vacation to Key West until after New Years. We always stay at the Heron House, location is key. It's probably time for some soft-good upgrades, time for duvets! Great service as always, decent continental breakfast and lovely gardens. Weather was wonderful, it's nice to be able... More

Flew in to Ft. Lauderdale this afternoon. Drive to Key West, 3+ hours, and checked in to The Heron House in the Old Duval District. Lovely property! Very welcoming. Jr. Suite, 2nd floor, with private balcony overlooking the street. Be prepared to hunt for parking places over several blocks. Lovely evening air with a nice breeze off the Gulf.

Heron House has been a lifetime place to stay for me for over 30 yrs. It is perfectly located at Simonton and Fleming Streets in KWF. Nearby you have 5 Brothers sandwiches and many restaurants to choose from. It attracts a European clientele and you must visit the oorchid gardens the owners have procured in the back of the guest...

Second time at Heron House, previously stayed there in 2006. The property is still well maintained with lots of plants and trees. Our room was large, quiet and had a balcony overlooking the courtyard. The included breakfast bar was stocked with fresh baked goods, cereals, fruit and coffee, tea and juice. The location is perfect; the waterfront, shopping, restaurants and... More

So, I want to start off by saying I have never written a negative post on any ratings site.  Ever.  I believe that all businesses have good days and bad and I've never wanted to disparage a place for what could be an outlier experience. However this time, I am going to make an exception. My wife and I were... More

First off: I booked thru Expedia. That was a big mistake: The people at Heron House are very nice and helpful. The room was in the newer part of the property. I should verify the room was nice but needed some minor repairs. And regular up keep and cleaning of the window air conditioners. The dust and mold build up... More

This was our 4th trip to Key West, each to a different B&B, and we will continue our visits with great enthusiasm and expectations. Love KW! From our experience, all B&Bs within the historic district, based on our modest expenditures, are comparatively the same, physically: quaint, hundred-year-old architecture immersed in lush vegetation; relaxing atmospheres; small rooms, smaller baths, and smaller-yet...

Let's be clear... The Marriott this isn't. Each review here is accurate... The difference is in the expectations of the guest/author. We were in Rm 42, second floor, above the office. Overall, it was pretty much what we expected. The gentlemen at the front desk weren't doing cartwheels upon our arrival. No biggie. They were reserved, and reasonably pleasant. I'm... More

First I have been to KW over 10 times and have enjoyed many properties, except this one. You sign a waiver stating that you will not make any noise and if you do they can and will kick you out with no refund. The owner was at the desk and could not even lift his head to say Hi -... More
