We got a great room, Marie was really helpful and we had a wicked time. The room was simple and clean, no frills but good price. Loved it Also close to the centre so we could walk in. Ace. Nearly 200 words Nearly Nearly Close Done

We found this place on a dog friendly website that recommended it. It is fairly inexpensive compared compared to what you would pay at a major hotel in the area. No smoking in the rooms, there is an outdoor public lounge area for smokers. Not much by way of frills but if you only need a bed and a shower... More

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
