“Perfect position”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Booked on the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviews and it lived up to this. On Duval Street but the quieter part although within easy walking distance of many major attractions. It is beautifully presented and our room was absolutely delightful. The veranda was perfect for watching the world go by in the early evening and proved to be a very social place to be for breakfast. An excellent choice.

Stayed March 2013

booked this b&b last fall...we usually go to KW at the end of feb when we are fed up w/snow and cold weather....the price and location on duval street were just right...expanded continental bkfst in am hit the spot...plenty to choose from, and hot coffee, juice, milk readily available...room was immaculate, and the staff was friendly..jirena, the housekeeper, was exceptional..she even made a few "towel" animals once she had finished our room...all in all, an enjoyable stay...if you are able to get a parking spot, by all means, keep it...only 6 or so for 12 rooms...not everyone drives, though...and there are other free spots nearby...very close to galleries, restaurants, and the ubiquitous bars...

Duval Gardens was a great place to stay in Key West. Very convenient location on Duval St. On the quieter end but easy to walk to all the areas in the historic area. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet even on busy Duval St. Loved the continental breakfast on the front porch in the morning. Loved our stay and would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to others!

We drove from Miami to Key West (thought we'd do a "wing it" vacation)--we're from Kansas--and Feb 14th everything seemed booked and very pricey--well we ran into Duvall Gardens and she happened to have a room with 2 queens and would even take $10 off--what a lovely lady and lovely room (100% better than the one we had just stayed in- in Miami for the same $$) Great walking distance to all the Duvall Street shops/restaurants/pubs and front porch a great place to people watch. Also had continental breakfast on the front porch--basics, juice-fruit-bagels-great breads, hardboiled eggs and tons of coffee--I think I drank a pot myself. It was also nice just talking to the other guests on the porch and hearing their stories. Also got us a parking spot which is hard to get. Only negative which is really not---wouldn't really consider pool a pool--so if you're teens are looking for big pool you need a resort.

We very much liked Key West, this fine place. And the Duval Gardens hotel very good, is perfectly located on Duval Street, but not in that its part where it is very noisy. Nearby beach, and Southernmost point, and Hemingway's house, almost opposite stop of a walking tram, very conveniently. Room pure and beautiful, with a parking was lucky us, and us very friendly met. Wi-Fi works only below, but it anything terrible. We recommend this hotel and we want to stop in is mute again

We stayed at the Duval Gardens January 21st-24th. It was my 3rd time to Key West and my fiance's first, so we wanted to find a nice place near Duval/Whitehead street, it turns out the location of Duval Gardens is not only close to the action, but close to the beach as well!

The location could not be better.

Barbara, the person in charge, could not have been better or nicer.

Fantastic small heated pool

Great spot for a drink on the deck before going out.

The rooms were a little small, but they were excellent and very romantic, much better than staying in a normal type hotel.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are in good placement and have their own private entrance.

Not as far from Duval activities as feared.(Senior Citizens) Very clean, good breakfast, friendly -helpful staff. Large bathroom, comfortable bed in good size room. Everything worked-TV, alarmclock etc. Would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 24 is at the end of the water line-low pressure but OK.
