We loved the Speakeasy Inn not only for all the reasons other reviewers have noted (friendly staff, lovely/clean room with deck, wonderful breakfast and yummy rum drinks) but for it's location.

The Inn is on Duval street, but not the noisy end. The street has quite a bit of foot and road traffic during the day, but not at night. We stayed in the room toward the back of the Inn on the second level and it was nice and quiet. It is also centrally located in a safe neighborhood. We walked to everything!

We stayed three nights...wish we could have stayed longer! Many thanks!

The room was very nice, clean, and had all the amenities we needed. It exceeded our expectations. The Rum Bar is awesome. Great drinks and fun times with a different mix of people. Jill and Bobbie are very helpful and made us feel welcome. We will be back!!!!

We found this B&B using tripadvisor, so it's only fair that I pay it forward now after having been there.
The staff is very friendly and helped us a lot with things to do around the "island", the rooms spotless (we had room number 2 with our own "private" patio, which was a bonus) and the onsite rum bar was just amazing (234 different types of rum !!!).
But, above all, the location was just perfect! On the main road in Key West (Duval Street), yet on the quite side of it. Which meant you were in perfect walking distance from everything without the loud noises at night!

I haven't been stayed else in Key West, yet I'm pretty sure that if I'd ever go back, I'd stay in the Speakeasy Inn again!

My husband and I love the Rum Bar SO much. It's always the first place we hit when we pull into town. Starts the weekend out right! They have THE best drinks.. and the bartenders are always so nice and friendly. We stayed here for 4 days, on the top floor around the back (room 2) it has a private little sitting area outside. This was a wonderful place to stay. Quiet, too! Our friends stayed at the same time the room in the front and they had some sleeping issues, from the street noise.. We had none. Very comfortable bed... walkable to everything. Once we parked, we didn't get back in the car at all. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: I would suggest Room 2 if you like privacy.

We passed this bar several times before we went in. This was a HUGE mistake. As soon as you walk in you feel at home. We sat at the bar with several local guys that gave us great incite to places to go and drink and eat that you don't have to pay a arm and a leg. El Siboney Restaurant was one of them. Do yourself a favor and drop in for a good drink and great conversation.

Been visiting Key West for a number of years now for an annual scuba diving trip. Normally we visit in February or "high season" this time we visited in September which is low season.
Key West accommodation is always expensive and will always be expensive due to the limited size of the island. I've rented condo's, stayed at the Westin and also some lesser hotels.
This past weekend stayed for 3 nights at The Speakeasy Inn and Rum Bar - what a brilliant find!!
low season rates averaged at $140 a night and it's right on Duval St. albeit toward the South end.
I loved everything about this place.
Parking was easy for the car and our scooters and the level of service was 5 star!!
I will definitely be staying at The Speakeasy Inn on my next visit to Key West!
