This was our first trip to Key West, and we had a fabulous stay at the Dewey House. We had a garden view room, don't recall if it was 404 or 414, but sitting on the side porch we could easily see the sea. The room was clean and large and cool in the 97 degree heat with a comfortable... More

We concluded our honeymoon in the La Mer and Dewy House staying for 5 nights. It did not disappoint! Our room was amazing with a partial seaview, the bathroom was amazing with a big claw tub and shower. The beauty of this place is it combine a charming b&b with the benefits of a large resort. There are lots of... More

This was our first trip to Key West and we were not disappointed. We are so happy we chose to stay at the La Mer Hotel and Dewey House. After initially choosing a garden view room in the Dewey House we then upgraded to an ocean front room (404) in La Mer. The view was terrific! The room is right... More

For us, this hotel was an ideal location. Enough off the beaten track but only a block away from Duval Street. We stayed at the Dewey House which was quite nice. Went across the street to get Cuban coffee every morning which I now miss having. Access to the beach was ideal. Don't expect to see the sunrise because you... More

Once again, stayed at the La Mer and enjoyed every moment of it. We had the advantages and conveniences of the Southermost Hotel while enjoying the privacy and peacefulness of a B&B. Breakfast is fresh, delicious and plentiful. Staff is terrific. The Southernmost Cafe has a terrific server named Ron (Opppps - or was it Don?) And Sam Messier is... More

The Dewey House has all the comforts of a B&B and all the amenities of a resort. The room/bathroom were beautiful, the AC was cold and the staff more than helpful. It is in walking distance of Duvall.

Short but wonderful experience at La Mer! Room and property were perfect - clean, accommodating, professional, comfortable, close to all Duval St has to offer! The room at La Mer was beautiful and comfortable. As pert of our anniversary I ordered the Wine & Cheese presentation through the Concierge - beyond expectation!!!

For the price of a partial ocean view room at Southernmost Hotel in Key West, we got an oceanfront room at its sister property La Mer Hotel, but still had access to all the amenities at the resort - three pools, fitness center, concierge, beach and restaurants. Our room had a lovely patio with two lounge chairs where we could... More

We stayed for three nights and had a beautiful room. The morning breakfast is wonderful out on the porch overlooking the water and Randall was so very gracious. The afternoon tea was such a treat! We enjoyed the pool and the pool bar and would highly suggest you consider Dewey House for your next visit to the Keys.
