We generally liked Pearls Key, but the room was very "old"... Our Aircon made sooooo much noice we could not get a normal nights sleep. Staff was very service minded and friendly, location is perfect.

Hotel was overpriced and breakfast was very poor. It is very central to Duval Street and is very close to the landmark "90 miles from Cuba.' We were disappointed with breakfast and for $420 per night it is below average. For the price they charge at least put on a nice breakfast and some good coffee.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We do have a great location downtown, close to the Southernmost Point and many other attractions downtown. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed in our breakfast. We do offer different room types at different rates; perhaps on another trip you could look at lower priced options if that... More

I have been to Pearls a dozen or so times over the past 20 years. I was very excited to take my girlfriend there to celebrate her birthday. It is still plastered all over the internet that this is a LESBIAN guesthouse. When I made our reservation over 6 months ago, there was no mention that ownership had changed or... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Pearls went all welcome several years ago; I am sorry it was a surprise for you. Our website does not reference us as a Lesbian Resort any longer, but as we know once something is on the net it is there forever so I'm sure the reference is still out... More

We stayed for 2 nights inthis nice hotel. Clean and confortable. But we got the 3th floor and we had a lot of luggage. It was very hard to climb up all the stairs. The breakfast could be more rich.Nice pool and nice bar on the pool. Near the best part of Key West but in a quiet neighboor.

We booked this hotel last minute and got a very good deal, I was expecting a basic hotel room and instead got a lovely room/suite, nice sitting room, bed room and shower room, two small pools, a jacuzzi and a bar! The only small criticism is that the complimentary breakfast was very basic, but as there are so many other... More

I stayed at Pearl's with my wife when I came back to Key West for my retirement ceremony after over 24 years in the Coast Guard. What an awesome place to stay! The rooms were really nice. Ours had a sitting room which was perfect to have people over. The back patio pools and bar was absolutely fantastic! It was... More

August 2014, and still no rights. No right to marry, no right to adopt, and no right to be at our loved ones death bed. Now we have no right to the last women only space in Florida; Elizabeth Cady Stanton free my sisters again.

This was an excellent stay at a very welcoming hotel in Key West! The service was friendly, accommodations were clean, and the amenities were all we could ask for! Will definitely stay there again the next time we're in Key West.
