This was my second time at Pearl's in Key West. I must say, I am going back to Pearl's for Fantasy Fest in October. We had a king suite right by the pool and it couldn't have been nicer. The room included a sitting room, large bathroom and king bed in a large room. The Tiki Bar was wonderful and... More

This hotel really got charm. It consist of several rooms spread across different buildings, and it didn't look messy just charming. The location is on Union street just off Duval street. The south side of Duval street is calm and quiet and still in walking distance from the vibrant life. We stayed in the addict which gave us a small... More

Hello Sigurd, Thank you for taking the time to review our property! Parking in Key West is always a little tight, and many guests do just fly in to avoid that hassle. There are SO many great spots in town for breakfast; our courtesy continental spread is great for something light or quick. And yes, our pools certainly are inviting... More

We stayed in the big yellow building next door the front desk. The room was in the front next to the street and parking lot but maybe because it is the slow season and so not too noisey. Staff was freindly and helpful with local knowledge. Breakfast is free with a few choices.of bread or muffin, cereal, yogurt, fruits with... More

Hello Douglas! Thank you for taking the time to review our property! We are in a great location, so close to so many things here in downtown Key West. Being on the upper end of the downtown area, we do stay a little quieter- even in season. Having gone under new ownership we are working on some our physical flaws... More

I stayed here with my partner before and we loved it...not this time...what a change. I rarely write negative reviews but I'm fully disappointed. I booked months in advance for two poolside rooms for my HONEYMOON. They only had one; when I asked if there was anything they could do (I even offered to pay more money) the woman just... More

Very pretty, intimate grounds (loved the plummeria tree). W had a room with a king sized bed, and enjoyed the size of the room, and the decor and amenities. The breakfast was light, but very nice, and nicely presented. Had the feeling of a bed and breakfast. The location is terrific, close to the southern most beach and Duval Street.... More

Pros: Decent place for the price. Key west is expensive and not many choices. This place is decent. Friendly staff. Location is good, close to everything, can walk pretty much everywhere. There's some parking down the block which is open to non-residents. Breakfast is basic and decent and free. Cons: Weak wifi, and beds were sinking and not comfortable to... More

Rooms were cozy. My only bad comment is the shower was very small. I'm 5'3" and found it small. My b/f is 6'2" and had... More

Pearls was a fine place to stay, but we won't be back just because of disceptive advertising. We stayed in a suite on the second floor of the main building. The room was clean, but had issues. The building is old, and nothing is level or plumb. This normally would never bother me, but the bathroom slopped so much, I... More
