The Inn Keepers are great and professional in everything they do. Nell, Tracy and Randall make you feel at home while on vacation. They will do their best at exceeding your expectations. The rooms and breakfasts are inviting and different every day. The cold afternoon tea and lemonade are a welcome relief in the hot sun when you need a... More

This was the first time my husband and I vacationed in Key West. We went for 4 nights with our friends. They were celebrating their anniversary and I was celebrating my 50th birthday. After many, many hours on trip advisor and reading many reviews of places to stay in Key West, I chose the Lamer/Dewey bed and breakfast located at... More

My wife and I stayed for the weekend and can't wait to go back for a week. The room, staff, beach, pool, bars, restaurants, grounds, location were all amazing. The room was classically beautiful. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The beach was right outside the hotel door. The pool was warm and clean. The bars and restaurants... More

Celebrated my husband's 50th Birthday and met friends to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary. Our room was wonderful with a view of the ocean. I loved the bed linens and towels. In fact I would love to know where the bed linens are purchased. Our room was plenty cold in contrast with Key West warmth. What a treat to... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here to celebrate his birthday. How lucky we were to have such a wonderful place to do so! The Dewey Hotel room overlooking the ocean had a balcony and the room (418) was beautiful and spacious. We enjoyed the breakfast with much fresh fruit and varieties and mimosas and the afternoon tea was... More

First time staying in Key West and was so glad that we picked La Mer and Dewey House as our B&B. We came to Key West to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and friend's 50th birthday. We had a congratulatory note and bottle of champagne waiting for us. It was an absolutely beautiful B&B that was right on the beach... More

My wife and I spent three nights in one of the suites at La Mer during our honey moon. The room was perfect with great ocean views and we really enjoyed the surroundings and staff hospitality. The only thing that could have been sligthly better is the breakfast at Dewey House. There were few options other than American dishes such... More

We just spent 5 days at the LaMer/Dewey House. The location is convenient to Restaurants, Duval St. and Mallory Square (20 min walk) but removed and quiet enough to give you a very different Key West experience. Lovely facility with one of the few beaches on KW and the staff was over the top. Could not do enough for you.... More

My wife and I spent a week at the La Mer House in July. It was enjoyable and disappointing at the same time. Had wanted to stay at the John Dewey House (adjacent) but it had no ocean front rooms available. The "junior suite" that we stayed in was more "junior" than "suite." While we were right on the beach... More

We stayed 2 nights at the beautiful La Mer. We had chosen it partly for the prompt responses reviewers had received from the management. On the 2nd night we stayed, a large SYSCO truck was parked outside our door and the very loud generators were left running all night. We were offered a "free upgrade" that was not nearly as... More
