Our stay at this gorgeous and historical [but comfortably suited for modern life!] seafront gem was remarkable. Where else do you get a mix of old-fashioned, slow-moving southern hospitality, mixed with the Caribbean flair of Key West, all in a B+B setting with your own beach in back? Aside from the wonderful setting, the service was exceptional - clean, friendly,... More

Be aware that this property is part of the Southernmost Hotels and Resorts. Although there wasn't construction - technically - at our location there was major construction going on next door at a property owned by the same group. You could hear and see the construction from our balcony and the pool for our property was closed because of it's... More

I found this place doing lots of research. I knew I wanted an upscale bnb and wanted to be on the quieter end of duvall. My room (416) was beautiful; the bathroom was huge. I also had a huge, private and enclosed patio. They had a large mini fridge; the corner store down the street provided what I needed to... More

We have been to Key West a couple of times and stayed in other Inns / Bed & Breakfasts, but this was the best accomodation by far. We were disappointed with the other accomodations that we stayed in, therefore this time I was determined to get it right. Therefore, I booked an ocean view suite at La Mer. We were... More

My husband and I were looking for a peaceful area with an ocean beach while visiting Key West mid-July. We arrived to La Mer midday on Wednesday and left really early Sunday morning. We reserved a garden view room and got our own private porch. Room 406 was very quiet and wonderfully clean each time we returned from the beach.... More

My husband and I stayed at the La Mer house for 10 days and it was absolutely wonderful. We just arrived home last night and I am already looking for another time to go back. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out the service was great. Every night they turn your bed down and leave... More

This was a business trip. That said, this would be a wonderful place to stay on vacation. I got a great summer rate well below advertised on room 401 which was beautifully furnished. Had a great, large, very clean bathroom with every amenity. Room had a little glimpse of the ocean but a porch with chairs gave a better tho'... More

Our experience was wonderful from check-in until check-out 3 days later. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was spotless and well appointed. This place compares favorably to 4-star hotels in it's ability to make the customer experience the best that it can be. We had a room on the ground floor with a garden view but... More

We picked the Dewey House for it's location, and were happy we did, for this spot is probably the best that Key West has to offer. The inn is charming, clean, located right on it's own beach, and on the quiet end of Duval Street. All the action is exactly one mile north, so you can take a cab in... More

The La Mer House was simply perfect. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there for six days. Quiet, classy, comfortable, clean and ideal... Located on the quiet end of Duval Street, it's close enough to the fun, but still quiet and peaceful for a good night's sleep. Since we had access to all amenities of the Southernmost Resorts, we...
