My husband and I checked into the Heron House on 8/4/15 and stayed until 8/8. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, the privacy (locked gates around the property), the friendly staff (especially the breakfast lady), and our room. We were on the 1st floor outside of the breakfast lounge and initially were worried it would be noisy but did not hear... More

This is a well run guest house in the heart of Key West with easy access to the main nightlife, restaurants and attractions. A simple but well laid out complimentary breakfast is available near the pool area as is fast free Wifi which can also be connected to from some rooms.

Cozy and clean centrally located B&B. Rooms are clean and well kept even though they show their age. Comfortable bedding and a little noisy window installed A/C. The staff is ready to help, but remember there is no reserved parking and you will have to find space on Simonton St. (try very early morning or late night). For breakfast we... More

This B and B had a great location and the property is beautiful. The room staff was helpful, but the security cameras and office staff were a bit odd and not especially helpful. It seemed the owners are terribly worried about anyone getting out of line, which is impossible in Key West.

It has deteriorated during that time and not enough is being done to maintain the place.Smelly rooms, uncomfortable beds, rotting wood in the front and back doors, cushions on the chairs and couch incredibly stained and...

We returned to this adult onlyB&B after a lovely stay four years ago. Very disappointed on our return visit. The place has become very run down. The room was dusty and felt dirty. It needs paint, lamp shade was broken and dirty. Floor tiles cracked and it needs a deep cleaning. Television was 30 years old. The bed was uncomfortable.... More

Our room was fabulous and we had a wonderful week-end. We recommend this place highly. Close to everything, parking was a bit of a challenge. Once we got a good spot we left the car there and walked to everywhere. The staff was spectacular, the pool was very refreshing after a long hot day walking around Key West. The FREE... More

Our stay here was overall very good. It was easy to find, and close to Duval and the sea port. We were on foot, so this was very important. The staff were very friendly and engaging, and very helpful with any questions we had. The place is old, and needs a little sprucing up, but it was comfortable, safe and... More

Take a step back into the past. Beautiful old house with nice rooms decorated to put you into the mood of the Keys of the past. Our room was spacious and clean. They put out a nice continental breakfast and the lounge area is very relaxing. Location is perfect to enjoy the sights and restaurants of old town without a... More
