“Beautiful room, great location but OVER THE TOP price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

We stayed one night in a King 'Suite,' wasn't really a suite, just a larger than average room with a pull out couch inconveniently located right in front of the door. We paid over $500 for this suite. I know it was Spring Break but please. This is hardly the Ritz. Loved the location, it was clean and comfortable and the people who worked there are lovely. Don't think we'll be back though, they allow kids (have them but don't want to be around them in KW) and it's overpriced.

We had another great vacation stay at the Almond Tree. The hotel is beautiful ! Every detail is perfect. There is constant personal service and extreme cleanliness on the property.

The rooms have recently been redone and updated. The location is perfect for walking around Duval street. No need for a car, but plenty of parking if you have one.

Would certainly stay again and again.

We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Almond Tree Inn and had a very enjoyable time. The hotel is in a perfect location and appears to be an older style motel that the owners cleverly relandscaped and refurbished in order to turn it into an upscale inn. While I'm not sure if I can add anything that hasn't been said before, I'll pass along what made the biggest impressions on us:

Pro:
Very friendly, very attentive staff.
Wonderful location close to the fun of Duvall Street with none of the noise or associated crowds.
Well cared for pool and patio area.
Clean, beautifully decorated rooms.
Happy Hour with complimentary snacks and at least one drink.
Included continental breakfast with good selection of muffins, fruits and other breads.

Con:
Our room was on the small side, at least in relation to the king sized bed. I would have much preferred more room to maneuver and less unused bed space.
The limited room space meant only one of us could use a luggage rack - I was constantly taking out and putting away my suitcase.
The bathroom door was a heavy sliding semi-transparent panel - attractive but it let the bathroom light shine through to the bedroom. Not a problem during the day but at night it meant you pretty much were turning a bright light on in the bedroom.
The bathroom sink is located in the room, always a disappointment from a privacy perspective.
Due to the bright bathroom light and the sink situation anyone trying to get ready in the morning while others sleep is in a bind - my wife ended up using a flashlight one morning.
Parking is an additional 10 dollars - this seems unreasonable considering the price of the rooms and the apparently sufficient parking space the motel possesses.
The room 'refrigerator' appears to actually be a type of wine cooler - while very attractive it doesn't lend itself well to holding basic groceries.
Our room was on the end of a long first floor row - while 95% of the rooms looked out on the pool, our admittedly more private room looked out on a storage shed of some sort.
The free WiFi service worked well throughout the hotel grounds - except for our room, where the signal was too low to connect. Perhaps using some of the parking fees to get an extender should be considered.
The number of pool lounges is small in relation to the number of guests. While there are barstools and patio tables set up that can handle the overflow, if you really want to lie in the sun you can have an issue. While space constraints possibly prevent adding more, management should perhaps consider discouraging the use of reserving vacant lounges as some guests were doing with their reading materials and pool towels.

When all is said and done the importance of the Pros outweigh the more numerous annoyances of the Cons - we really enjoyed our stay, but some things could be improved.

Thank you to all the Trip Advisor contributors who rated this hotel! I chose it because of the great reviews and we were not a bit disappointed. Everything was perfect! The staff, the service, the spotlessly clean rooms, the location, the breakfast, the happy hour----what more can I say? The hotel is small enough that you are comfortable with the surroundings and the staff from the time of your arrival. We stayed five nights in March and if we return to Key West, we will definitely stay at the Almond Tree again. Thanks to Bill, Sean, and Jose----hope to see you again in a couple years!

Room Tip: We had a deluxe king room, ground level, right at the pool! #105....very nice!

Once again I was able to visit Key West my favorite place in the USA. Spent a week at the Almond Tree and it was again Awesome!!! The staff was so helpful and always went the extra mile. This hotel is in the heart of Key West and you feel like your in your own little world. The pool and hot tub are a very welcome treat, The beds are the best and I believe the pillow was made by an angle, some of the best sleep I have ever had. If your heading to Key West you really need to stop and stay awhile.

Stayed in late February. Welcome relief from our Northern weather. Spot is located right in the middle of Olde Town with all of its activities, yet feels secluded with its own ambience of privacy and quiet. Staff is exceptional, always looking for some way to help. Complimentary breakfast is more than you could ask for. Service and surroundings are immaculate. Pool and hot tub were very relaxing. Elevator for second story was very convenient when getting baggage to room. Bedding is luxurious. Best ever. Even better than at home. Linens are plentiful as well as the amenities, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions. Can't say enough about how well I was treated. Able to relax, read and enjoy my stay. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: I preferred the second floor. No ceiling noise, less traffic and elevator.
