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...

We stayed at Carribbean House from December 30 through January 10 of 2013. This was our fourth stay at the property. As always, you are greeted by Marie who is one of your inkeepers. She actually remembers her guests from year to year. Everything was perfect as always. We had planned to stay for 8 days. However, because of bad... More

My friends and I stayed at the Caribbean House in August of 2013. I had an incredible time. The rooms are small, but they have everything you need. And they were spotless. I am a stickler for clean and I had no complaints. I was looking for a B&B that could accommodate all of my friends and for a reasonable... More

Our plan is to not stay in the room when we are on vacation. Cleanliness and ecomomy and location, you can't ask for more in Key West and this place has all three. We love Key West and until we strike it rich and buy our own place down here (which is highly unlikely), we will make this place our... More

Charming Caribbean House in Key West's Bahama Village, is a delightful guest house in a fun area. It's true the rooms are smallish but had everything we wanted - even a funky painted loo seat! Marie, the French owner, was friendly and we felt totally relaxed there. Lots of good restaurants on the doorstep: try the Creperie for breakfast and... More

Even though Key West is expensive, this place is not worth 129 plus tax. The house to the left of the building (when you are facing the hotel) has a AC intake that makes you feel, sound wise, like you are sleeping inside a refrigerator. When we asked if we could change rooms, we got the answer that it was... More

To Answer to this nice couple from SWEDEN, that I remember perfectly I am sorry if they had a bad experience in our guesthouse. It is right to say that the rooms are small but as the price for Key West I think that $129 for the end of December and in the middle of Old Town it is fair.... More
