My husband and I  stayed at La Mer and Dewey House for 4 days/3 nights in January 2015 and had a good experience overall. The resort is beautiful,  and, based on my observations of other hotels, it is THE place to stay if you are looking for a beach resort experience in Key West (it appears to be nicer than... More

You have to be careful when booking at The Southernmost Hotel Group - collection of hotels - as there are four different 'units' each offering a slightly different 'emphasis' stretching over a fairly large area - ranging from 'quiet and secluded' to the more active and 'party' environments - but with most of the facilities being available to all residents....

We stayed at the Southernmost on the Beach. We upgraded to the B&B section for $35.00. The room was great, the breakfast was good, and the staff was wonderful. The beach was small and a bit of a disappointment. Besides being a bit pricey, the beach would be the only disappointment.

We decided very last minute to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Key West. I contacted reservations via phone and spoke with Jennifer who was incredibly helpful and patient with all my questions - we were after all celebrating our 25th and wanted it to be perfect. I was given several room options within the resort, and decided to go... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Dewey House and enjoyed it immensely. The location is right on the ocean, about a block from the noise of Duvall Street while still being convenient walking distance to the action. The room was spacious with a nice balcony and the bathroom had one of the deepest tubs I'd ever seen. Breakfast was delicious... More

We stayed two nights at Le Mer & Dewey House. Our room was actually on the first floor (street facing) of the Dewey House - Room 413. While a little smaller than I had anticipated, and a little disappointed that a room called a Deluxe garden view really didn't look out on to a garden, we were completely satisfied. How... More

Just returned from a 4-night stay in room 409 at La Mer. One year ago we stayed in a West Lawn facing suite at Southernmost on the Beach. While that was very nice and had a great view, the view and setting of room 409 must be the best and MOST charming in ALL of Key West. It is second... More

We stayed one night at La Mer in a room 2nd floor with direct oceanfront and two more nights at Dewey House. Both houses are side by side and belong to the Southernmost Beach Hotel. We've stayed 4 or 5 times at the Southernmost Beach Hotel, but we never had a reservation, so this time we had to take La... More

We stayed at their B&B while attending a wedding this fall. It was amazing. The property is beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great, too. This is definitely my number 1 choice when staying in Key West.

I paid over $2500 for a 3 night stay between Christmas and New Years. For those prices, I expected excellent service. I realized on the last night of our stay that a bag from a local store was missing. It was near, but certainly not in, the trash can, and the gift inside was wrapped. I went to the front... More
