The hotel is beautiful from the street. But room quality is really bad for the price we paid. Soundproof of the room is very bad. We could hear all the conversation in the room next to our. The pressure of the jet shower was low. Almost impossible to clean long hair. Towels we put on the floor (in order the... More

We stayed over Christmas and thought it was very pricey for what we got. This is a historical building with a great location, parking and great for people traveling with furry family members. And unlike other places they don't discriminate by size (we have a 70lbs Golden Retriever). The rooms are hodge-podge crammed in, to maximize the building and they... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this "find". Booking online is always a risk but we were happy with this choice. It is located within easy walking distance of Duval Street, historic landmarks, and the water. As expected when staying in a 100 year old house, there is no elevator, rooms are cozy but comfortably appointed. Breakfast is served by the... More

My husband and I came for a weekend getaway from Miami. When we arrived the staff was gracious and kind, a room was ready and we were excited because it was very clean and the bed was comfy. They also had plenty of parking which is nice not to worry about our car. We had a great time in Key... More

We were looking for a place to stay with local flair but not a major chain. This was just what we were looking for. The property has 3 beautiful Floridian homes with plenty of Key West character. They have a common area with a heated pool. We asked for a junior sweet on the second floor. In many ways it... More

The grounds are lovely and the staff was friendly, and overall, this a very pretty property, but the amenities that were lacking brought down the overall experience. The room was average...not great, not terrible, but not what one might expect for paying TOP dollar in high season. Loud a/c, loud bathroom fan that couldn't be turned off...the breakfast was very...

We're glad you appreciated our lovely grounds and friendly staff. I'm forwarding this to our team to look into the room issues you mention. I do know by law the bathroom light HAS TO be connected to the vent fan, so there's no way to turn off the fan if the bathroom light is on. It's just one of those... More

We loved to check in at this very well run hotel. A light and wonderful renovated room with ensuite bathroom and private patio. Just what we needed. A scents of old Victorian days. Very good placement, away from noisiest part of town and near enough to be close to all things. Breakfast was ok according to breakfast i US.

Having just checked in to this conveniently located hotel the hotel staff are great. We were provided room 15 at the rear of the property. If you could see the look on the face of my wife and I when we opened the door......... My store cupboard at home is bigger. This is the smallest bedroom I have ever paid... More
