Agree with everything written in these reviews. We had an incredible stay. The tranquil pool with nearby self serve wine bar is just one of the amenities that makes this place great. Just close enough to great restaurants but just far enough away too.

You will enjoy your stay at this Inn, It is private and quiet and you can do as much or as little as you want in Key West. No need for a car - we rented bikes and went everywhere - epecially to Ft Zachary State Park.

My wife and I stayed here only one night, only because the hotel was booked. Otherwise we would have stayed longer. This is a Little Oasis in the middle of Downtown Key West just a short walk north of the famous Duval Street. They treat you very special and you feel like family, they helped plan the most out of our stay. The owner is "Hands on" and a wonderful lady. If you want the best experience for a place to stay in Downtown Key West this is the place !

Room Tip: The garden room overlooking the private garden and pool.

We stayed at The Gardens for three nights. It was a very nice, quiet oasis in an otherwise funky tourist town. The gardens with a very nice pool served to create an elegant space, where jazz was performed and piano several nites afternoons a week. We did enjoy the wine tasting bar, which we could access most any time with a very wide selection of wines. In my experience this is a feature unique to the Gardens. Breakfasts were fine. And our room was terrific. If we return to Key West, it will be to the Gardens Hotel.

We just returned from a four night stay. We've been to Key West many times, and stayed many different places. This was definitely the nicest. The property is beautiful and has everything you could want. The room we stayed in was very nice with a very comfortable bed. I loved sitting on the veranda and relaxing. The pool was nice. Service, especially from the bartender, was friendly and attentive. The location was perfect, and I was surprised how quiet it was at night for being so close to everything. This is not a place for wild partying, so if that is what you are looking for, you will be disappointed. But if you want quiet, relaxation, romance, and great service, this is it.

This is our 9th stay at The Gardens Hotel. To say we love it is definitely an understatement! The rooms are gorgeous and so very comfortable. The Gardens are amazing. The staff is friendly and helpful. (Our favorite is Carol, she works every morning and provides the perfect breakfast!). Don't tell anyone else there because they are wonderful too! The Gardens Hotel is close to everything, but tucked away in a private paradise!
