We booked this lodging after reading the favorable reviews on TripAdvisor, and we were not disappointed.We stayed in a queen suite in the Island City House building for 3 nights in early November. Our room was #16 on the ground floor at the back end of the building, far away from both William and Eaton St. The room was very near where the continental breakfast was served, but that did not bother us.
We had a huge private porch with wicker furniture. The suite itself was beautiful and immaculately clean - high ceilings, crown molding, wood floors. The original charm has been maintained, but with modern conveniences like a flat a screen TV and air conditioning. We didn't cook, but there was a full size refrigerator, range, microwave and coffeemaker. There were some utensils, dishware and pots and pans, but I don't know how easy it would be to cook a very elaborate meal.
We had very quiet upstairs neighbors, but that might not always be the case, because of the wood floors. After all, the house was built in 1880.
There was plenty of street parking on William during our visit. We walked everywhere and did not move our car until our departure.
As others have said, the continental breakfast was fine. There are bicycles for rent and a pool.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped and there are a few resident cats who greet you now and then.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for lodging that is convenient, clean, reasonably priced, beautiful, and that provides a more authentic Key West experience, we would highly recommend Island City House Hotel.
