From the moment I stepped out from the car and saw the building I felt in love. The buildings and interior are beautiful and the staff is great. An extra shout out to Agnes at the front desk, she is very sweet, talkative, fun and mostly adorable. I will recommend this place to everyone I know and will surely come... More

This was our third stay at Alexander's and it keeps getting better. The rooms are wonderful, quiet and quite comfortable. The breakfast, which is included, is poolside and fantastic. You can't go away hungry. Happy hour is so relaxing, having drinks by the pool, just a wonderful experience. We love the location being several blocks off of Duval. It is... More

Such friendly, welcoming and knowledgable hosts. Relaxed and settled in straight away. The rooms are gorgeous, and the pool and jacuzzi fantastic. Loved the nightly Happy Hour when all the guests could mix together and get to know each other. Great stay!

Warm and welcoming. Smart and sassy. I wanna work here. The staff makes you feel local within hours. The rooms and grounds are impeccably clean. Special accommodations were made for us the night we arrived too late for for check in.

This was our second stay at Alexander's after staying at another Key West B&B for over 12 years. We were glad we tried Alexander's last year, and the second time around was even better. We came with another (lesbian) female couple. Alexanders guests appear to be 90% gay/lesbian, with probably 2/3 being gay men (when we visited in March). We... More

Alexander's gets better and better with every visit. But there is really no secret to it. In addition to an outstanding facility, they also have the best staff ever assembled. They make us feel like family. I love to linger over coffee and breakfast by the pool. And they have the best Happy Hour anywhere. Truly an amazing place. Also,... More

I spent four nights at Alexander's in January. While the weather did not cooperate as much as I would have liked (polar vortex even impacted Key West!), the staff at Alexander's was amazing. I loved my room (Room 10). The breakfasts and evening happy hours were fun, a great place for a single traveler like me to meet other folks.... More

Like you, I read review after review that raved about this place. I wondered if it would be as great as everyone said. It is beyond awesome! We booked our stay for next year on our last day as it was the only way to console ourselves about leaving. We will return with the friends we met there. Every need... More

We were not prepared for the superlative experience at Alexander's! We both celebrated our birthdays on March 10. Upon arrival,Jeff was simply awesome.We had parked around corner of White St. Jeff & Michael insisted on retrieving luggage for us. Jeff checked with several nearby restaurants for dinner and also printed maps to them. Upon learning we would be gone to... More

To say Alexander's Guesthouse fufilled our expectations would be an understatement. From our very first phone call inquiring about a possible stay there to checking out at the end of our stay it was a wonderful experience. Every employee made us feel welcome and couldn't do enough for us. The Guesthouse itself was lovely, comfortable and well maintained inside and... More
