Loved the staff - everyone was SO nice - the grounds - lush and lovely - and the accommodations which were above and beyond what we expected. We were able to book a room with all amenities conducive to making meals en suite and storing snacks and beverages to take to the pool. While this saved a great deal of... More

Walking distance to Duval, water, and many restaurants. We felt safe coming back to the room at any hour. We were able to sleep in and not be awakened by other guests staying at the hotel. We stayed in the Cigar House and had a beautiful view of the grounds.

We go to Key West at least 2X a year for the past 7 years. We don’t stay in a hotel “room”, that’s not for us. This is not a “hotel”. It is better. We like to have a stove, fridge, living room etc. Makes it feel like we live in Key West for a few days. I must say,... More

We loved our weekend trip at Island City House! We drove down from Miami and could not have been happier to be greeted by the friendly staff and cats upon our arrival. The grounds and rooms are beautiful! The property feels intimate and cozy nestled within dense verdant tropical landscape perfectly fitting for Key West. The different houses all have... More

This place was amazing. The grounds were lush and tropical. We stayed in the Arch House Queen Porch and had a kitchenette and living area. Walking distance from Duval St. and Cuban Coffee Queen and quiet at night. But why walk, when you can rent a bike right there! I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT THE STAFF!!! Always helpful... More

We recently stayed 2 nights here and it was wonderful. Very quiet, very relaxing. Rooms are nicely updated and comfortable. The location was great. Hemmingway house was a 15-20 minute walk, Duval 10 minutes walk, Front street 5 minute walk. We lucked out and found a parking space in front so that was great! Will Definitely stay here again when... More

We stayed 9 days at the Island City House for our wedding and honeymoon. From the beginning everyone was more than accommodating with any requests that we had. Located within walking distance to everything you need, friendly staff and beautiful grounds. We had a great porch which we spent time on every evening. All of our guests rooms were very... More

The history of Key West shines through in this beautifully kept hotel set in tropical gardens. This is a suite hotel within walking distance of the old harbor (and restaurants) and famous Duval Street with it's bars and shopping. Our suite had a lovely bedroom with nice linens and updated bath. The kitchen and living area were very functional, though... More

This was just perfect for us! The rooms are very comfortable., clean and included a small kitchen area. We stayed in the Cigar House on the second floor overlooking the pool.We spent most of our time exploring and doing the tourist things. Every day we collapsed at the pool and recovered before our nite out. Quiet and off the beaten... More

We had to switch to this location last minute because the BNB next door overbooked us. They were very friendly and offered us a very nice room with a balcony. The room was clean and spacious, the pool was small but nice, the workers were very friendly and helpful accommodating our bags while we stayed on the island after our... More
