Stayed one night with my family. Staff was awesome and more than accommodating. The room was very clean and comfortable, even the couch bed. Close to duval and all the fun but not so you hear noise. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! And they allow children which is a HUGE plus as I have two of them!!!

I had originally reserved 5 rooms for 2 nights and had to cancel 3 - yes we were charged $100 for the 2 rooms we cancelled months in advance and a 1 night stay for the room we cancelled within the 14-day window - all that was clearly on their website and truthfully, the 2 rooms we did have made...

This is the first bed and breakfast I had ever stayed in so I didn't know what to expect. The suites were surprisingly upgraded and peaceful with your own porch. The staff was friendly and accommodating especially because we arrived past check in. It is in walking distance to everything. I would definitely stay there again!

We stayed at the Island City House Hotel on our first trip to Key West. We had no idea what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. It's just far enough away from the busy/crazy Duval St but not so far that we couldn't stroll down at any time. We stayed at the "Arch house" which was very clean, spacious &... More

Our first trip to Key West and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotels. You think you are in a jungle paradise with all the greenery on the property. We stayed in the Cigar House and our room looked over the pool from the great porch. The room was spacious. The bathroom and kitchenette looked like they... More

What a wonderful experiance! This lovely hotel is actually three seperate houses each with it's own look. We stayed in one of the suites in the williams street house. Our private porch was the size of a normal house porch! We had a lovely kitchette, and the rest of the suite was appointed with antique furntiure that really gave it... More

The hotel was Clean and comfortable. The management/owners were very pleasant and allowed us to arrive late and park the Motorcycle on their grounds to avoid paying for parking. The outside area was like a garden and jungle that gave you a relaxed feeling. I highly recommend this hotel when in Key West.

Stayed here for three days upstairs in the Carriage House. No surprises and all was outstanding. I really appreciate the effort these folks have made to provide breakfast in light of the changes by the state government regarding commercial kitchens. Coupons were provided for free pastries at a local shop a couple of blocks down, and they proved to be... More
