Room # 9 is a nightmare, most pricey and most requested. Major sound 24/7, blinds that do not block any light, stained box spring cover. Breakfast was frozed waffles. Coffee & tea was unavailable during the day. Cold staff that were not helpful or gracious. Furniture different than what is on their website. Not enough parking in their lot for... More

May 2007 This was our first visit to Key West and found the La Penisone Inn on the internet and booked it directly. This Inn is very charming, we stayed in room # 6.We wanted to be near Daval st., but not on it, because we're light sleepers. We slept great ! Our room was large,it smelled clean (not musty)... More

Located on the busiest street, you would need to be in a coma to be able able to sleep. According to the inn, our room, #9, was the most requested, and I cannot imagine why. It was like trying to rest in the midst of Times Square, between the trucks and motorcycles whizzing by right under your window, the bright... More

We came to Key West for the first time at New Year's. The staff at La Pensione made us fine like we'd been there many times. Freda and the rest of the staff told us breakfast would be later because they knew the guests would not be early risers. And none of us were. They gave us great suggestions on... More

First, if you are going to Key West, STAY IN OLD TOWN!!! The rest of the city is like visiting Fort Lauderdale or Tampa. Second, Old Town is great! Charming, lots to do, just a great all around vibe. You can walk everywhere. As for La Pensione Inn, my wife and I loved it. It's a beautiful house, has plenty... More

Fantastic pictures on internet, unfortunately we did not see the room before we payd, or we would have left. Specially after one night in an extremely noicy room facing the street. Horrible green smeelly carpet on the floor.

We regularly visit the Keys, and usually stay at the Lightbourn Inn. However, since it is closed, we tried La Pensione. Some of their staff are from the Lightbourn. The service was GREAT, reservations as advertised, room ready on time. We stayed in the (infamous in this column) veranda room #9 by request - we like sipping libations on the... More

We found the service to be very good, with a really good breakfast each morning. The location is good: a short walk to Duval Street. It is on a busy street, and we stayed over new year's eve, so Key West was plenty busy. However, our room was in the back, and we were not bothered by street noise. We... More

When we booked our room here, we did not realize that Truman Avenue is U.S. 1, the main thoroughfare from South Florida into Old Town Key West. In our Room #9, upstairs and facing Truman Avenue, we had to tolerate traffic noise and fumes from a constant flow of commercial and private vehicles. Flushing the toilet caused "pipe chatter," and... More

This room is definitely not worth the $320 we paid to stay here! Although the room was large and in a beautiful old house, both beds were uncomfortable and had creaky coils, the walls are paper thin and the bathroom was very basic with very poor quality toiletries. When I relayed my disappointment to the inn manager, I was met... More
