We stopped here for a minute to get out of the heat on Saint Patty's day and had one of the best Mojitos ever. It's a small bar, but they have an outside porch. The bartender was extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped us pick some places to eat.

The Speakeasy is our go-to place to stay when visiting Key West. We have stayed here numerous times over the past several years and it never disappoints. The rooms are cute and comfortable, like a home away from home. Big, soft beds, adorable room decor, kitchenette, and chocolates on your pillow. What more could you ask for? Flat screen tv,... More

Found this gem about 8 years ago by accident and have been back 6 out of the last 7 years. The rooms are spacious, even the small ones. All the rooms sit back from Duval so you don't hear much noise. Easy walking to all the shops and entertainment. The staff is kind and very courteous. And now they have... More

This is such a wonderful Inn located right on the southern (and less active) end of Duval. It is so clean and includes a nice breakfast each day along with very helpful hostesses. Sitting on the front porch with a cold beer from their Rum Bar and watching the world go by is my kind of day in Key West.... More

We needed somewhere to wait until a table became free at a nearby restaurant so found this gem of a place. Good quality, high alcohol ;) rum based cocktails served by a friendly bartender. Plenty of other stuff to drink but I've never seen so much rum! Enjoyed ourselves so much we went back the next night.

We had some highs and lows staying at the Speakeasy Inn and Rum Bar, it’s a wonderful place and the people are very friendly and helpful. We had visited the bar on a previous trip so knew what to expect, its a great bar atmosphere and we thoroughly enjoyed the cocktails, especially the Painkillers and the 151% homemade rum, which...

After reading reviews here, we booked a 3 night stay while explorinig Kew West. We were very happy with the accomodations. We were given room 2 which is second floor sitting back a bit off the front. At first we were thinking we would have liked a front view overlooking Duval. However we soon found out that this room was... More

My friend and I planned to stay only one night in Key West, and immediately changed our minds after arriving to this amazing place. The staff was warm and nice. They treated us as if we were their own kids, no exaggeration. The rooms were clean, big, new and felt like home. We had got chocolates on the beds and... More

We were in KW for new year's and stayed here for 3 nights. Very clean rooms and the staff was friendly. Plus, the rum bar with its amazing drinks was an easy stumble back to our room. I'd definitely come back.

I loved the Speakeasy as soon as we pulled up. The inn itself is simply charming. And Barbara and Bobbi were the most gracious hosts. The place is a bargain (compared to every other accomodation I researched), and the extra touches made it even more fabulous. First drink free at the Rum Bar and $1 off all others during your...
