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

This place is poacked over the weekend, so since i was way too late to book my halloween weekend i decided to stay during the week. I wasnt lucky coz it was very calm, i would say max 8 guests. But the room and the service is great. Awesome place where i will return on a busier time.

Every time I return I feel as though I am back with good friends. The desk staff are wonderful and all the staff are very professional. With its laid back atmosphere, Island House has always provided a fun and enjoyable vacation experience. The 24 hour cafe is excellent and there are plenty of things to do nearby. The only way...

Loved this place!! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The property was clean, relaxing and everything I wanted from a gay resort. The facilities were excellent, exactly what I needed, and the staff were amazing (especially Mark the barman). There is a carefree attitude, no one bothers you if you don't want to be bothered, or...

My time at Island House was superb. The staff is kind, hard working and unobtrusive. I stayed in a category where I shared a bathroom. I always had plenty of room and even though the resort was sold out, there was never a problem of overcrowding. I always seemed to have the shared bathroom to myself. The décor and fixtures... More

Our stay at the Island House was amazing. The front desk personnel were wonderful. They showed us to our room with a tour of the property. Our room was ready and waiting. This was our new home away from home for the next 9 days. It was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. The housekeeping staff was invisible. When we... More
