We absolutely loved the Dewey House! We had a room on the first floor, which we were a little worried about. When we got there, we saw that our room was right next to the entrance. But- it was actually not a problem. It was very quiet, clean, attractive, comfortable, and very big. We had a private porch off of... More

We were due to stay at the Inn at Key West, but due to it's location we tried our luck here on the off chance. The staff were excellent, particulary John C who is the Housekeeper. He made us feel very welcome and made a room available for us. We couldn't fault this place, the beach front location was ideal,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Dewey House over Easter Vacation. We were extremely impressed! The breakfasts had fresh fruit, coconut pastries, whole grain breads, waffles, fresh squeezed o.j. etc.. Four o' clock teas included yummy keylime pie, fruit, cookies, etc.. Innskeeper John Cline could not have been more accomodating and made a point of sitting down and talking... More

It is said that you should look for reviews from people that reside within your local geography. For instance, someone in Europe may give a hotel a spectacular rating versus someone from New Jersey. As such, let me start by saying that I'm from New York City and while I'm not rich by any stretch of the imagination, I don't... More

We stayed at La Mer for two nights in June whilst touring Florida, it was the perfect loaction. Our room was immaculate and looked onto the beach you cant get better than that! John the innkeeper was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return one day hopefully for longer!!

We got married on South Beach (at the La Mer Hotel) this weekend. I am going to keep this short but it was pure perfection and John the innkeeper is the best! Best breakfast and 'tea time'. We had a blast and my family and friends stayed next door at the southernmost on the beach and though it was very... More

A group of friends went to Key West for a 40th birthday party weekend. Most of us stayed at the La Mer Hotel and Dewey House. What a find! The rooms are beautifully appointed, and they have incredible views overlooking the beach and ocean. They are located at the quiet end of Duval Street, but everything you want to do... More
