My husband and I booked a last minute trip to Key West. We knew it would be a bit crazy since it is near spring break time but this resort was PERFECT! It is in walking distance to most anywhere and is on the quiet end of Duvall. You can make Key West what you want it. We wanted quiet... More

Honeymooner paradise. Private bar, beach, balconies and right off Duval street. The resort is part of a larger chain so you can enjoy multiple amenities in a B & B atmosphere. I would stay here over and over again. Absolutely exquisite.

Excellent location - the hotel is located within walking distance to downtown Key West but far enough away to never hear the night life. When we wanted to see the sights on Duval Street - it was a walk away and we could come back to the resort and get away from it all. We loved the beach view from... More

We stayed at La Mer and were so happy we got a last minute reservation there. The hotel is part of the Southernmost group so we could use all three pools, the beach, restaurants, etc. We had a room facing the street but there was no street noise at all. The room was spacious and attractive with a very comfortable... More

My wife and I spent 4 wonderful, fun filled nights in Key West at this top notch resort. It is located at the quiet end of Duval St., away from all of the action, but we found that was a plus. We rented a car for our stay in Key West, but the car remained parked for our entire stay.... More

The La Mer and the Dewy House have become our favorite places to stay while in Key West. Having stayed all over the island, these two consistently rank at the top of our list. We can't recommend them strongly enough.

These two historic and beautifully-renovated homes sit smack-dab on the one of the rare Key West stretches of sandy beach. The morning breakfast is hearty; complete with fresh fruits, sinful pastries, island-baked breads and quiches. There is always a special made-to-order choice of the day (think belgian waffel or pancakes banana foster or a 3-egg omelet.) You can spend your... More
