We were 7 friends and stayed 3 nights. I had heard a lot about Duval House and was very excited to stay there, however it was close to awful! First of all the room: we were staying in one of the big old rooms that look fantastic from outside. The room as such is ok, but has nothing special, but... More

This is a very nice B&B terrific location our room was delightful and quite spacious. Off street parking in Key West is a real bonus, be sure to bring a mid size car as the parking is tight. The pool is a welcome spot to escape the hot August Sun

For my second visit to Key West, I decided to try The Duval House - a great decision. Room was quiet, breakfast just right, and the pool was nice. The Duval House is centrally located to a host of sightseeing and things to do; Duval Street, Mallory Square and the Waterfront. The Duval House staff was very friendly. It was... More

Well this isn't what I like to hear! We love the old school charm of our home in Key West, but that charm should never mean dirty rooms and outdated decor. That said, I'll take this feedback and run with it to make sure every guest is getting the top-notch experience people have come to expect when they visit the... More

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.

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
