We just returned from one of the most relaxing vacations we have had in 10 years of travel. My husband and I stayed in the Roma room at the Andrews Inn for four nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was really friendly and helpful, making dinner reservations for us and making referrals for fun places to go in Key West. We rented bkes from the inn and they were perfect. We had been to Key West before and were looking for a place to stay the felt like the real Key West, not a touristy fake disney style representation of it. We found it. We are not hand out at the hotel kind of people and we totally did on this trip!
The location was perfect, close enough to Duvall to be near the action, but far enough away from the bars to be quiet. We walked or rode our bikes every day and night and felt completely safe, even after midnight.
Happy hour every day was lovely, the breakfast looked fab ( we chose to eat elsewhere on our way to other activities, but we did enjoy juice and coffee). The compound was really lovely with lots of beautiful plants, very well decorated front porches and of course lots of cats! The pool was very small, but it was perfect for our needs ( who is going to be doing laps after sailing for 6 hours?). The room was comfortable and clean with a large king size bed, and beautiful antique armoire, flat screen and writing desk. The bathroom was small, but big enough for our needs.
The only thing that made it less than perfect was the mattress on the bed was very soft and with a bad back, was uncomfortable and the hot water is not really hot, but it was 90 degrees outside! Who needs a scalding shower? I didn't mention it to anyone, but I know if I had, it would have been handled immediately!
We truly enjoyed Jorge and the rest of the owners as well as the entertaining staff (who brought us mangoes!). We checked out at 11am but our flight didn't leave until 5:30, they wer kind enough to let us keep our bikes and swim until we left for the airport. That, my friend is customer service that you no longer find anywhere any more! Really a lovely place to hang out and venture out from in fabulous Key West. We will recommed the Andrews Inn to all of our friends and also will return on our next stay in Key West!
