Our first visit to Key West. I prefer the small hotel experience and was impressed by the Trip Advisor ratings and so chose this spot. We wanted something special and so justified the extra expense to stay at The Gardens. As per other reviews, the staff was very helpful and friendly. We got great restaurant suggestions and help getting our car out of the very small parking lot. The bed linens, towels and robes were very nice and luxurious. Breakfast was nice and suited our tastes. We took advantage of the wine bar which is pretty ingenious. However, we stayed in the main house which is charming but noisy. The room and bathroom were quite small. One desk chair besides the bed to sit on. Small hinged, antique desk did not provide a flat surface to use a computer or put down a beverage, and was otherwise in disrepair. Not enough space to unpack; armoire was not adequate. Freestanding refrigerator hummed all night. Roosters woke us at 5 every day. Other guests got up early and we could hear their every move. Pool area was overgrown and there were mosquitoes. I really wanted to love it but overall, I was disappointed.
