Arriving from Miami, we welcomed the offered champagne to calm down. The room was quite nice and well air conditioned. The property is well maintained - although the garden is a little wonderland. A lot to find and pretty nice (the former owner was a garden architect). The location is perfect - in the middle of everything. The staff will... More

Thank you for the review and for extending your stay! Our garden is a wonderland full of beautiful statues, artwork, tortoises, coy ponds, an atrium and a beautiful gazebo to relax in. Being in the center of Old Towne makes things a bit easier. Thank you for the praise of the staff, I am glad to hear they made your... More

Something magical always happens when I go to visit in Key West and it all revolves around The Gardens Hotel. I meet some of the nicest people there that are guests and I am always treated as family at the hotel. If I ever have an issue (which is rare) the concierges are always on the ball and resolve it...

This is a truly delightful hotel. Had they served lunch and dinner we probably wouldn't have left. We stayed for 5 days and were really able to really relax. With only 17 rooms you never feel crowded and there was always space by the pool. The wine bar, which has a range of wines and good prices was self service.... More

Thank you for the terrific review! Such a treat that you were able to be here for a nice lengthy visit. Having an acre of property gives you plenty of room to move around and not feel crowded which unfortunately is few and far between in Key West. Sounds like you had a nice relaxing time with us.

We have stayed for one night at The Gardens Hotel. What a great experience. Perfect stay to explore the charming Key West. We have been upgraded to the "Eyebrown Cottage", a very beautifull studio, with private parking, jacuzzi and very well decorated.

Even though you were here for a short visit, we are glad you got to get away and visit us. The Eyebrow cottage is so peaceful and with it's own entrance and porch and being nestled away in the garden it feels like a home away from home in Key West. Come see us again soon and thank you for... More

I've stayed at many different places in Key West over the years and am bummed that I didn't know about this place earlier! GREAT rooms, EXCELLENT service and PERFECT location! We loved the pool, the bar by the pool, and all of the animals (cats, birds and even tortoises!). Pool open 24-hours and they even provide sun screen. There's a... More

From beautifully appointed rooms to lush landscaping, this Hotel/Bed & Breakfast has it all. Attention to detail can be noted in every aspect of this service oriented establishment with Nancy helping us with every need.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days in September 2009 (sorry for late review) and absolutely loved it. What we really liked about it was the fact that this is really geared towards an older, more mature crowd that appreciate things like wine, botany and jazz (in no particular order :-)) To elaborate, they have a great...

I will begin by saying I work in the hospitality industry so firsthand I understand the challenges of not only maintaining a quality property but also satisfying the needs and desires of different guests.
