Believe the great reviews for this hotel, it's truly a gem right in the center of Key West. From the rooms equipped with every need, to the complementary glass of prosecco offered by the concierge, to the peaceful and wonderful garden, to the attentive staff, to the delicious breakfast - this is a place that is hard to leave.

First impressions mean a lot. When we walked into the main house it was pristine, clean, bright and beautiful. The concierge person greets you with complimentary sparkling wine. Awesome! She gives helpful tips to exploring Key West. The grounds is kept very clean. They have a small bar and decent size swimming pool. It was very green and plush around... More

From check- in to check-out, everything was perfect. Robin did not just tell us where our room was, she took us to it, after helping my... More

Our trip to this American paradise started off with no one at the hotels desk and a locked front door upon our arrival. We had been on travel for 16 hours. After over an hour of trying to get someone there to check us in we were shown to a room that was much smaller that we were told would... More

I am very disheartened with this review. There are so many discrepancies that I am confused as to how to respond, but I will try. We ask all of our guests for an estimated time of arrival when taking a reservation. We also email a confirmation letter asking our guests to call us if they will be arriving after office... More

Found this hotel by chance, but SO glad we did. Relax by the oasis of a pool by day and walk to dinner and entertainment in the evening. Will never search for another property in Key West! Staff, accommodations, location...perfect!

The Gardens Hotel is one of the nicer small bed and breakfast style hotels on Key West. The gardens themselves are quite beautiful, and the proximity of the hotel to Duvall is very good. Close, but still quite private and quiet. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Overall, a very nice place to stay, and stands out in a... More

We had two very enjoyable nights here. The gardens are great to walk around, the pool and pool bar were uncrowded and low key. Our room was beautifully decorated and furnished luxuriously. Th location is about a block and a half off of Duval so we never had any noise issues. It is almost halfway between Mallory square and southernmost... More

We spent our honeymoon in the Eyebrow Cottage at the Gardens and it was beyond wonderful! Two years later, we celebrated our anniversary there in one of the suites and it was just as lovely as we remembered. The location is perfect and an easy stroll to the heart of Old Towne, yet the property feels like a garden oasis... More
