This was my third stay in five years - each one gets better! The common areas are neat and clean and designed for guests to meet each other and mingle. The rooms are comfortable and immaculately kept. Most sights and restaurants are within a 15-20 min walk and there are several excellent eateries within a couple blocks. The morning buffet... More

We have been visiting Key West monthly for years and have stayed at Alexander's every time, so much that we considered it a home away from home. Every person that works there is like family and goes above and beyond to make our trips amazing even after years of staying there. We have met guests from around the world during... More

Excellence at the very best I have stayed in several Guesthouses in Key West over the years and I cannot say enough of how the special the entire makes you feel during your stay. For those that have complaints apparently you have nothing better to do with your life then to complain. From Laura the manager to the entire housekeeping... More

Hands down best hotel in key west, maybe the country! Ryan the bartender was amazing. His drinks were great, he's so hot, and his recommendations for dinner were spot on. Michael was amazing too, so helpful and sweet. I will definitely go there any time I visit key west and recommend me friends. Oh! And the rooms!! SUPER clean! Great... More

We booked this guest house on the strength of tripadvisor reviews. The B&B is about a 20 minute walk to Duval street and has the advantage of being away from the hustle and bustle of the Touristy section on Duval. Pros: The room was clean, although there was a foul odor coming from the bathroom drain. Nice pool and grounds... More

It is true, when you were here, we were going through some transition and clearly you felt the effects of that. We truly apologize that we dropped the ball in any way... More

I am really not sure what all the fuss about this guesthouse is about. We found it singularly disappointing. The room (number 2) was tiny, hardly larger than the bed, could not be properly darkened (no curtains, just shades that did not work properly), had a bathroom with a door that could not be properly closed and had what surely...

We were all so sorry to hear this guest did not enjoy their stay. We all read the Tripadvisor review and were saddened to read this review. Each guest enjoying their stay is our truly our MOST important goal. While we realize we cannot please everyone, we do sincerely try. A review like this is extremely rare for us. Not... More

I stayed at Alexander's for a few days in September. I had a very nice time. The staff are very attentive. The morning food/coffee spread was something I usually missed but I was impressed by the quality and attention to detail on the days I could take advantage of it. Key West was amazingly hot and humid while I was... More

Just back from 6 days at Alexander's Guesthouse. My daughter brought me here as a retirement gift and I am so, so glad she did. She chose it because it was rated #1 on Tripadvison-with good reason. It is a gay-friendly place but certainly not restricted. We are not gay but we are "friends of the community". There were other... More

It was our first stay at Alexander's and after 4 days there we can say that this truly was our best time ever being away from home. Besides the really tasteful designed house, room and pool area it was the very very nice staff that made the difference. We did not feel like being in a guesthouse or hotel -... More
