“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Duval Gardens was a great spot right on the main street thru Key West but a few blocks away from the main action that gets a bit noisy and rowdy at night.

The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was a nice continental style with some great fresh fruit and tasty coffee along with the selections of bagels, cereals, muffins etc...

Barbara, the manager on duty at the time, was extremely knowledgable about the area and gave us some great tips on places to eat and visit. She was very pleasant to work with.

The only negative but one that certainly did not affect my rating was that the air conditioner on the wall next to the bed was a bit noisy but since it was almost 90 degrees out it was a welcome to have on all during the night.

My wife and I were so impressed with the excellent service we received from folks here. They went out of their way to be helpful. They were very upfront with recommendations of sites to visit during our two days there. We were most impressed by their making reservations for us on a sunset cruise...the first was full and the second we were able to do.

Bottom line...great people. Place was clean and comfortable...great location. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was a bit small yet the bathroom was larger than normal. It really was fine for us but som...

This was our 2nd time staying at Duval Gardens B&B - centrally located right on Duval Street in Key West. Room was clean, nice toiletries in bathroom, solid basic breakfast, little pool with lounge chairs, large porch in front where guests enjoy their breakfast and can people-watch the passers-by on Duval. Free parking. You'd think it would be noisy through the night since it's on Duval - but it's a little further down - opposite direction of Mallory Square end. I'll be staying there again...

Booked online, was a little wooried but was surprised, very nice bed and breakfast, room was on main floor, queen room very nice and clean. Pool is very small but was refreshing in afternoon. Easy walk to anywhere on Duval street and quiet. Breakfast was very good with a covered porch to sit and relax, and watch the world walk by Shuttle stop across street if you need to ride, limited parking

Room Tip: Stayed in room by pool, note pool closes at 9pm, we would stay in this room again, there is a king o...

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.

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!
