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.

Another visit to Island City House, Key West, why change , location is great , people are wonderful and the rooms are very clean and large for a B&B. There are great restaurants , steps away, a seafood market across the street and of course many local bars.

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

We arrived on the Key West Express from Ft. Myers Beach and only had... More

Beautiful Hotel. Everything was clean, comfortable, it was just great. Gardens relaxing. Owners very pleasant. Would definitely stay there again. We could walk to the restaurants, the shops, and Mallory Square and watch the sunset. It was such a lovely place to stay you hated to leave.

The appartment was very clean, big (2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen) and a privat porch (no 2 - street side). The garden is so nice, with... More

A warm welcome and useful local information from Gaines when we arrived. Provided us with a voucher for coffee and croissants from the local "Old Town Bakery" a few minutes down the road - an excellent place with amazing food. Gaines upgraded us to a bigger suite with a private porch with outside seating area. Room very clean and housekeeping... More
