We have spent many years coming to the Southernmost hotel collection and Key West. We have been very pleased staying at the LaMer and Dewey House and in fact we have stay over 8 times in the last 6 years. I would highly recommend the LaMer and Dewey. The only thing I would change is the reservation system should have... More

Overall my husband and I had a wonderful trip. We stayed in the Dewey house and it was very pretty. Everything was clean and it was set in a very private area. Key west itself made our stay 5 star. However when your paying over $500 a night and you go to this particular place because it's beachfront and you... More

Part of a larger conglomerate of rooms and scattered nearby properties, this part of the Southernmost Hotel is truly an oasis, a place to relax and unwind. Plush beddings and modernized bathrooms, their attention to detail, and unforgettable views from your own private balcony, make this a top notch choice for lodging in your trip to Key West. It's very... More

I spent a week at LaMer Hotel & Dewey House during the cold months of Washington D.C. I was traveling alone and I was treated royally by the management of LaMer. It's probably one of the most beautiful B & B's on the ocean that I've ever stayed. It's within walking distance of a bakery where I walked to get... More

Stayed for three nights following a busy time in Orlando at daughter's Disney wedding. Perfect location for a get away from it all break. Room was perfect with own private outside balcony and excellent facilities inside. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of fruit, breads, pastries and a chef's special daily cooked dish. Also enjoyed afternoon refreshments served on... More

Great B&B. Activities at the resort you can take advantage of if you want. Concierge desk very helpful and bikes were available to rent from hotel. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant, especially the Inn Keeper and Property Manager. Two excellent chefs provided excellent breakfasts and food for the afternoon tea.

My wife and I stayed here during our first trip to Key West in July '15 for a week. We loved the location and the room! We stayed in Room 406, which was a "garden view" room but really overlooked South St. It had a small, private sitting area outside the room where you could people-watch the events on South... More

We spent our 40th anniversary in Key West. We stay at the Dewey House. Our room had a balcony that look right out on the beach. The room was very clean and well maintained. All the staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel location was perfect. Walking distance to all the Duval Street activities but removed enough that it... More

Lovely B&B on the beach as a part of the Southernmost resort, so all the charm, location and amenities you could need. Enjoyed breakfast and afternoon tea on the beach-facing patio each day. Luxury rooms in a historic home. Quiet but still active end of Duval street. Friendly and accommodating staff. Took advantage of the concierge service for bike rentals... More
