Duval House is a wonderful place to stay in Key West. The rooms are in the style of Key West and the gardens in the back are quite charming. Not only is it on Duval street and a short walk to everything, but the rooms are very clean and quiet. The free breakfast is substantial and the service is very... More

Dear Fellow Traveler, I give you my highest recommendation for Key West's Duval House. When I am in Key West, unlike vacationers, I am working as a performing classical musician. Following an inevitably harried journey to Key West and facing the all-or-nothing performance pressure of classical music, Duval House provides me with a peaceful and calm retreat from all the...

It is indeed our pleasure. So many of those visiting Key West derive such pleasure from the exceptional performances by the South Florida Symphony when they are in town, and we are so happy that you, one of their best musicians, has elected to stay with us during that time. As is true for all our guests, we try our... More

Cost very high for the tiny room we stayed in the staff was unfriendly & not welcoming. We will never stay there again. I have a service dog and I was treated like I have the plague told to wait outside in the very hot weather until they decided whether or not they're going to even let us stay there... More

The Duval House is the perfect combination of charm and location. It sits in the heart of the tourist area, with shops and restaurants right outside the front door and a short walk to the main tourist attractions. We couldn't have picked a better location. Our room was clean and spacious and had a balcony overlooking the gardens. The garden... More

So wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Glad you took advantage of the garden -- we like to think of it as our mini-getaway from the hustle and bustle on Duval Street. We're looking forward to your next visit with us, and hope it's soon! All the best, Kirstin, Guest Relations More

Key West has provided us with an amazing natural beauty for the Duval, and I'm really happy to see you enjoy what we did with the rest. Thank you so much for taking the time out to let us know how we did -- the staff will really appreciate the kind words. We're looking forward to your next stay, too.... More

My wife and I returned to the Duval house for a short stay on 6/1 – sentimentally booking here when throwing together a last minute trip, recalling how we’d stayed at Duval House 23 years prior on one of several prior trips to Key West. Well, let me just say, the old girl has seen better days (and I’m not... More

We're sorry that you were unable to stay and relax with us here at Duval House and are certainly a little confused as to why you didn't bring all these issues to our attention while you were here.

Great location in old Key West. Comfortable bed, nice room, and beautiful gardens. A bit pricey though, should be aabout fifty dollars per night less. Breakfast could alsobe a little more extensive and they ran out of some items. Overall, I would definitely stay there again.

A great choice for a great location in the heart of Key West, we will return. Only 3 stars because this is, after all, a bed and breakfast in an older (and fully renovated) property. While Key West has a small number of 4 star hotel chains, this town is not about luxury retreats. Duval House is a surprisingly large... More

I do have one issue with this B&B, however I will leave that comment for last. The good: very convenient location, with the ability to walk to major Key West attractions. Yet far enough that you wont hear people/road noise all day/night. The rooms and bathrooms have been updated and are nice (we stayed in a Deluxe). The grounds are... More

Very nice and accommodating staff. Room were clean and rustic. Beds were comfortable. Air conditioning window units worked. This has the charm of old Key West. Far enough away from the noisy part of Duval. The gardens out back are serene and relaxing to hangout in at night with a glass of wine.
