I have been there for three times already and it has been wonderful. It is located in the heart of Key West and only two blocks from the main arterie which is Duval Street. You can walk every where you want to. The neighborhood is quite and surrounded with small cafés and restaurant. The beach is very close from the... More

The Caribbean House is the spot ! Good wifi, water was hot, soft towels, great beds, clean and close to everything. Best value for the money.... BTW, book your rooms early and arrive before 6:00... All the Key West guest houses close at 6:00 pm. Enjoy !

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. For the money you will not beat the location in Key West. You are only a few blocks from Duval St and it also has two nice restaurants steps from the front door. The rooms are small but very well kept and honestly in Key West you are not going to... More

Myself and 2 friends went on our bikes to get away for a few days. Being budget conscience, we decided on the Caribbean House. The hostess (owner?) was friendly, and got us checked in quickly. My buddy and I split a double room to further save on costs. The room was on the 1st floor (2 floors I believe), next... More

Finding a decent place to stay in Key West for under $200/night is pretty impossible. I had stayed at Caribbean House over ten years ago in college and decided to give it another try for my and my husband's babymoon. (It is under new management since then, and they no longer allow spring breakers.) The rooms are pretty tiny, but... More

We stayed at Caribbean House for 3 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Rooms are comfortable and are all unique with art and lots of personal touches. I would agree with other reviewers that our room was a little on the small side and we had difficulty storing 2 large cases. Aside from that the host was fantastic, the location... More

I just spent 3 nights at Caribbean House. Helena was serving as the guest hostess and was very friendly and helpful. The room is small as earlier noted but I have stayed in smaller rooms. It is located across the street from Blue Heaven and 2 blocks off Duval St. Most of the attractions are within easy walking distance. The... More

We loved staying here. close to everything. Very clean, room was small but that's ok. We didn't spend much time in the room. Will come back to the Caribbean house. Two blocks from Duvell St. on from State park, close to Mallory Square.

We chose the Caribbean House based on TA ratings and advice from a friend. The location is outstanding. We drove to Key West, parked in front of the guest house (CH has 4 spaces; you can reserve one for $10 per day) and didn't move our car until we left a couple of days later. You can walk to the...
