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

Greeted warmly by host, Roman, our rooms were clean bright spacious and welcoming. Small tv, giant bed...very comfy. In key west this b&b is located in a quiet street away from the crazy cheesy Duval st. Easy walk to all the restos and tourist spots including the docks. Better to walk everywhere or taxi, bike...driving is a hassle. Nice jacuzzi... More

Have been to Heron House 3 times in recent years but this most recent visit in Nov 2013 was disappointing. The property is not up to prior standards. Water bug in bathroom, slow draining sink, damaged umbrella on sun deck. Sun deck furniture rather old and worn. Buildings need power wash and paint. Sorry to see this as this was... More

I have stayed and visited in Key West before, and thought of trying Heron House, as I have stayed across the street at the Marquesa. I was disappointed in heron House. First there is no parking- and KW is a street parking/pay nightmare, so consider this. The pool side room, was small with a very noisy AC unit. The fiberglass... More
