For the most part this bed and breakfast was great, Tracey the property manager was great in showing us around and taking good care of us. The rooms were very romantic and clean, they were directly on the beach and it was close to everything. A quick one mile walk got us from one end of Duval to the other... More

My husband and I had never visited Key West before now, but not only will we continue to go back, we will also stay at the Dewey House every time. Our room had a gorgeous unobstructed view of the ocean and we loved to sit out on the balcony in the mornings and evenings. We also LOVED breakfast. We've stayed... More

I hate to even point out all the great things about this hotel because we want to keep it our secret! Breakfast and afternoon tea overlooking the ocean or while sitting on the front porch watching the locals and tourists travel to the beach or up to Duval (which is a block away) was a highlight of our stay. Everything... More

La Mer still earns a 10/10 after 10 years! My husband and I honeymooned here 10 years ago & we loved it! Wanting to do something special for our tenth wedding anniversary, we decided to return to Key West. I'd heard that La Mer and Dewey House, along with the Southernmost Hotel group, had been sold, so I was a... More

We found La Mer in the Hotel Tonight app and took a chance since for the most part we are not B&B people (too many rules, can't stay out late, meals at prescribed times far too early for our family). From our check in the "Perfectly Air Conditioned" reception to the special beach property that it's located on, La Mer... More

Great location and excellent service. Breakfast on the deck next to the beach is a highlight. On the beach at the lower part of Duvall Street, so it was quiet. Easy to get to the upper part of Duvall by walking or cab.

We headed for Key West without reservations, our usual style, and, in the course of discussing our next stop, "Maria and Sergio," sitting at the next table at a Marathon Key breakfast diner, suggested Southernmost Hotel Collection. So uncharacteristically unpressed for time, we went to take a look and decided on La Mer, which also offers bed & breakfast. Beautiful.... More
