Excellent service, attentive to every need. Beautiful location, quiet, beach resort at the end of Duval. They are doing major renovations next door at a related hotel and this should be done soon, which will only enhance the experience with the new additions and activities being planned. Can not wait to return. Sam and Sam are Great!!

We are very fond of both Key West and the Dewey House. We did miss the very personal attention that the old innkeeper John gave his guests both at breakfast and especially afternoon tea. He was also a mind of information about places to eat and drink. Sam will be very good I am sure with some training and help.... More

We stayed at the Dewey House for 2008 Fantasy Fest. It was a great experience. You had the quiet of a first class B&B, but access to all of the excitement of the adjoining properties that are part of the Southernmost collection. A great blend. The staff was first class.

We stayed in Dewey House for 5 nights in October 2008. The staff at the hotel was very friendly and welcoming. Room 419 was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The beach in front of the room was very clean. Breakfast and afternoon tea were delicious! We will be back!

This is one of our favorite places to stay in Key West. It's a small adults only B&B on the beach, conveniently located at the S end of Duval St, just 1 block away from the Southernmost point. Great service, friendly staff, nice rooms, continental breakfast and afternoon tea & snacks included.

Our room was excellent. We enjoyed the complimentary daily breakfast and afternoon tea at the Dewey House. Employees were very cordial and knowledgeable.

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
