First of all, I was there with a large group of friends, which made it a lot of fun. It is cruisy and attracts an older crowd. I was fortunate to be in a larger room, as some are pretty small. Staff was friendly. The happy hour was great (4 free drinks for guests from 5:30 to 7pm every day).... More

Hands Down the Nicest Gay Resort I have EVER stayed at. Very Classy place. Friendly Guests of all ages and a very Friendly Staff. If your Gay and in Key West then the Island House MUST be on your bucket list. I only rated the location as average only because it is a little bit of a walk to Deval... More

I get one week off a year (the days between Christmas and New Years) and every year for the past 13 years I've spent it at the Island House. Every time I think about trying something new I instantly start to miss the pool, the hot tubs, the bar/cafe, the frisky atmosphere, and of course the service. Few people actually... More

The title of this review reflects my feelings about this property. Island House is a fun place catering to the alternate lifestyle and one of the few remaining gay guesthouses in Key West. The rooms are well appointed with very comfortable beds, and ample amenities. Some offer private baths and others share with two or three additional rooms. Strangers readily... More

We stayed at Island House in early November for the first time after many trips to Key West. The location is a bit out of the way if you like to walk to Duval or hit the gay bars, but a bike or cab can easily solve that. There are some great restaurants close by though. The staff was very... More

There's a lot to love about the Island House and despite some issues we would totally return. In general the property is wonderfully maintained, comfortable and fun. The majority of employees we encountered were friendly and professional. Wonderful beds/linens/pillows, new gang shower and new padded loungers were some unexpected highlights. Areas that fell short: However clean our bathroom in general... More

The customer service is great was there for the first and was made to feel like we were regulars, the staff are AaMazing, rooms are small and quaint, my only complaint is the lack of food choice, no Vegan/Vegatarian or Gluten choices in this hotel, would have liked to stay at the hotel more for food but was not and...

I spent a good chunk of my professional life working for a major hotel chain in a full-service, luxury capacity. Therefore, I consider myself somewhat of a hotel snob. I'm not unreasonable, but I expect certain things when I am a guest at any lodging establishment. The Island House is a place where a man can truly be a man... More
