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

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.

5 Star !!! From check-in to check-out we could not have been more pleased. The staff is incredible, with a special thank you to Sam. The grounds and the room were absolutely beautiful. Don't miss breakfast in the morning!!! We will make a return visit.

Very comfortable bed and breakfast style rooms on hotel grounds that make you feel special. Close to pool and beach and Duval street. excellent food and a very pleasant staff. The only issue was the air conditioner in the room was on the noisy side but nothing that a few Rum Runners before bed time could not fix.

Rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. Close to Southern Most Pool and beach. Tea Time and Breakfast was great - good selection of food and beverages. We would most definitely return and try to get an ocean front room. Enjoyed our stay here.
