We were down for the Key West Half Marathon and a long girls weekend. We were looking for something that could fit 3-4 girls and had a mini kitchen. We stayed on the first floor of Olivia which had a king and queen size beds with a small bathroom. First off, you can't beat the location or the fact that... More

Had a wonderful experience at Olivia...Room 209. Room was right off Duval St. Great for walking to everything. Room was great...don't believe all the bad reviews. It was such a great cozy feel. Had all the amenities we needed.

I stayed here with my wife for a couple of days. It is quite expensive but Key West in general is ridiculously over priced. Our room was OK and clean. The guesthouse could do with a bit of refurbishment but as a place to stay for a couple of days, it was fine. The breakfast, served at the Wicker Guest... More

It was our first time to Fantasy Fest, and we were looking for a hotel with a great location, close to Duval Street. We googled "guesthouse key west" and found Olivia by Duval. The price was (very!) expensive : 850 dollars for 2 nights, no breakfast included. But we finally booked, because we knew that for Fantasy Fest the prices... More

My wife and I have been to Olivia by Duval 17 times since May of 2009. We absolutely love it there. When our friend, Kay, passed away after we left in 2014 we heard that the pale really went downhill. I read a lot of bad things; how it was falling apart, not being kept up, prices were raised, etc.... More

Stayed at Olivia by Duval from 9/9/15 to 9/13/15. Check in was easy, but its not at the location of the hotel. Check-in was on Duval at the Wicker house, which had a parking spot or you to check-in. I stayed in room 206 which was very nice. Comfortable bed nice bath although the tub was cracked and water pressure... More

Upon Check-in I felt like the man checking me in was checking me out. He said I could have free parking if I gave him my keys. I said "no" and he snatched the parking pass out of my hand. I said no I needed parking and he relented. Next we got to our room and it was tiny and... More

There's no parking and paying more for a hotel is worth the extra $ if you get a parking spot. Would be nice if we are offered free bikes or a taxi coupon...we drove around several blocks for 45 minutes and got lucky 3 blocks away. City parking lot at $25 for 24 hours. Thank goodness for location because that... More

Great experience every time, with an "at-home" feeling from the venue to the staff. Plus great location just steps from Duval. Since the first time that I stayed here four years ago, it is always the first place that I call when I'm heading to Key West.
