We stayed 3 nights in June 2014, family 2 adults and 2 children 11 and 15 years old. We got a very nice room with two rather large queensize bed so the children could share a bed. The aircondition works fine and even if it was located next to the bed it was quiet. It was really nice and clean... More

This is how a bed and breakfast should look like, very friendly staff and a great location in Key West, next to the ocean. Private parking was included and saved quite some money for 3 days, so that was a nice surprise when we arrived. Room was spacious and bathroom was ok, breakfast was absolutely fantastic and luckily, the bed... More

We stayed at the Avalon in June 2014. The staff was friendly and gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. They also agreed to hold our bags after check-out so that we could continue to enjoy our last day in Key West without lugging suitcases around. Our room was on the smaller side, but with a good price. It was quiet and... More

We were here for 5 nights and it was fantastic. Our queen room was cozy but some may call it small. It was perfect for us. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the house has beautiful South Florida character. It was obviously oppressively hot down there in June but our room was always cool and comfortable.

We stayed for a week and it couldn't have been better. Rooms are exactly how they are shown on their site. We had a double queen 1 night and a standard queen for 5 nights. Both were great. Having a refrigerator in the room was great for leftovers, water, and chilling wine. The pool area was great for relaxing. The... More

This B&B was sooo welcoming as were all the staff. My husband & I only spent one night here as part of our trip around Florida and really wish it had been a longer stay. There was a real old-school boutique feel to the hotel, it was really homely! The room was lovely also and we had a great breakfast... More

The stay was nice the rooms are clean and cool. Cable and wifi. Wine available during operating hours. 3-1/2 foot clean pool.comfy beds. Pleasant staff. I would pick this place again. I wasnt thrilled with breakfast but hey...there are a million places to eat. I also used paradise porters to deliver our bags and they got there safe and undamaged.

Staff were amazing, helpful and welcoming. Clean, comfortable rooms, lovely breakfast and a cool drink & biscuits in the afternoon. Coffee available 24/7 in the lobby. In a great position, quiet end of Duval Street, directly opposite the Butterfly Conservatory - which is a don't miss attraction. Thoroughly recommend Avalon.

Thank you so much for staying and for reviewing us. I am so happy you got to enjoy the Butterfly conservatory. Its just across the street from us, but so many people don't take the time to go through and it truly is worthwhile. More
