“Great hotel at perfect location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We booked a room for five and were delighted to see it was spacious and on two levels. It even had a full kitchen with a large fridge. It's located next to duval street, yet away from the lively happenings, allowing for peaceful sleep. Reception was very helpful to answer all of our questions. We had a great time and will book again!

Stayed April 2015

We were looking for budget accommodations in Key West (based on Key West prices). We settled on Douglas House, located near the the southern end of Duval St. We didn't expect much, but everything exceeded our expectations. Easy check-in, clean room, comfortable bed, quiet area, easy walk around old Key West, good coffee in the morning beside the well landscaped pool area, parking. The rooms are old, but we'll maintained and/or updated. Only beef was the noisy window air conditioner, but it was welcome relief, as it was over 90 F.

Room Tip: Key West accommodations are very expensive. Although not cheap, compared to Key West prices, Dougla...

We did lots of research before we decided on this hotel in Key West. It was close to Duval Street, entertainment, resturants and the Trolly. The staff was very accommodating and helpful in answering our questions and making suggestions when we asked. The pictures on their website are beautiful but they do not do justice to this little slice of paradise right in Key West. The outside areas and pool are so beautiful and well kept, and there seemed to be a little niche for me to drink coffee, read or use wifi, anytime I needed one. Our room was lovely as well. I do wish they had offered a little breakfast in the mornings that would have made it even better. Oh, and I forgot FREE parking!!! Loved this place!

When you visit Key West for the first time, it's important to stay on, or close, to Duval Street, where it "all happens"! Douglas House has excellent self catering accommodation on Duval Street, but just far enough away from all the hubbub to ensure you're not bothered by the noise. Lovely rooms, good service and no need to drive or park once you're there!

Room Tip: All looked excellent, just ensure it faces away from Duval Street

My husband and I needed a room for one night in Key West. We didn't want to spend $300+ which is what we were finding. This room was in our price range. It's located on a side street off of Duval. Close to the action but far away enough to be quiet to sleep. A short walking distance to restaurants. The room is a bedroom and bathroom. Very clean. Air conditioning a bit noisy, but earplugs took care of that. The one negative is the bed was very uncomfortable. Can't comment on the WiFi as we did not use it.

We stayed a night at Douglas House in April 2015 and were very happy with it. Check-in was efficient and welcoming, they had a spot for us to park our car and the room was comfortable and clean. Nice bathroom too. Two minute walk to Duval street, perfetct location.

We didn't try the pool (allthough it looked nice) and never needed to ask for anything extra, but the service we got through check in - check out was good. I'll be happy to stay here again if I ever visit Key West.

We had a room in the building across the street from reception and were very happy with the bed, I see some people complaining about the bed in room 8 (Casa de luces, room L8), but I think they must have changed it because ours was more than comfortable enough.

So glad we decided to stay at this wonderful hotel on our recent trip, staff were so welcoming and the room was fantastic. We stayed for 3 nights and could have stayed for at least 2 more, and we will definitely stay here again when in Key West. Fantastic location just off Duval Street but in the middle of the street which we prefer as it's quieter. Thanks again to Kevin and the staff for making us feel welcome
