We come here every year to escape real life. We vegetate in the beautiful gardens and float in the heated pool in the midst of the greenery. Enjoy spacious quarters in the Cigar House next to the pool. Usually quiet because of mostly adult clientele. Close to everything in Old Town--Don't rent a car. Wonderful fresh fish market across the... More

This was our first stay at the Island City House and we totally enjoyed it. We stayed in the Arch house on the street side. A bit noisy, but we loved just sitting on the porch swing and people watching from our balcony. We loved spending our days soaking up the sun by the awesome pool. The grounds are so... More

This was our first time in Key West! Stayed in the CIGAR HOUSE of the Island City Hotel..............actually like staying in a small apartment with living/dining area, full kitchen and king-sized bedroom. Loved getting up in the morning and just sitting on our front porch (Adirondack chairs) listening to the birds and sipping our cups of coffee! (There's a hammock... More

Great stay, great location, and very clean and quiet. We had a unit with a kitchenette which was great (full fridge, stove, etc.) The pool is cleaned at least once a day and is very clean. The location couldn't be better - very quiet but a short walk anywhere you want to go.

We just came back from 2 nights in Key West. We stayed in the main inn. Loved the people there; loved the location; loved the room. No cleanliness issues. As far as "food" in the room, they put a few small things in there but knowing the property had kitchens in each room meant that you could bring your own... More

We really wanted to stay in the historic district and were delighted to find this place. Our room faced a rather busy street, but honestly by 10pm, it was fairly quiet and we very much enjoyed the porch swing outside our room. We were in Key West during the week, which may be why it was quiet. Parking is on... More

I've always stayed at one of the higher end hotels (aka Ocean Key) in Key West. We opted for the Island City House to both save a little money (retired now) and to try something different. This was probably one of the nicest hotels that I've ever stayed at. Room was average for Key West in price (325+) but was... More

I was so excited to stay here. The website made it look dreamy--rustic, artistic with understated luxury. I booked four nights in early March, with another two at the Key West B&B next door. Upon arrival, all appeared as promised. The grounds were lush and beautiful. The premises were quiet, painted walkways gleaming. Lazy cats lolled about in the shade.... More

We are very sorry for this unfortunate situation. This guest received both a confirmation letter prior to her arrival with the check-out date, and, at check-in, she signed the registration card confirming the check-out date. We felt terrible about having to pack up her belongings, but we had another guest coming in and had no other rooms available. Our front... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cigar House near the pool in the back of the property. the room was actually like an apartment with separate bedroom with king bed and a spacious living, dining and kitchen. It was so nice to have room to stretch out and put our stuff and use a fridge and microwave! The only... More

We just got back from 5 nights at the Island City Hotel. Very nice property in an excellent location. Close enough to walt to Duval Street, the port, or most attractions, but far enough away to have peace and quite. Definitely would stay there again.
