“Great location & nice people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean and modern but had te key west feel still. It's just a few blocks from all the stores and bars. Only 2 complaints. 1) We paid extra for a room with a porch and while we had porch access it wasn't private. 2) You could hear every noise from outside all night long. If you're a light sleeper you probably want to request a room that's not facing the street.
All things considered a nice stay. We would stay there again.

We recently stayed here when we were attending a wedding in Key West. The room was very clean and comfortable. It is the perfect location for everything you want to do. Just off Duval Street, but away from the crowds.
Happy Hour and breakfast was served by Eli. He is a great host. He really added to our enjoyment of our stay. Always a smile, always accommodating.
We would definitely return.

We stayed at the Cypress House for 4 nights in November. We had a queen room, number 11, and our friends had room 15. Our room was on the first floor, had a porch with 2 chairs and a table, high ceilings, nice décor, large refrigerator, flat screen TV, comfortable bed, and a huge bathroom with a nice walk in shower. A hair dryer, soap, and shampoo were, also, provided. The street noise, noise from rooms above, and the stairs going to the second level would bothersome to many because it can be loud, however, did not bother us. Our friend's room was on the second floor and had a smaller refrigerator and a pedestal sink but similar in size and décor, although, I did prefer our room.

The breakfast was decent, although, I would have preferred some fresh cut fruit instead of just a few apples and oranges in a dish and some flavored bagels or english muffins. The daily 5 to 6 happy hour was very good and included a complimentary specialty drink and appetizer(s) - margaritas, rum punch, sangria, chips/guacamole/salsa, cheese/crackers, baked brie, conch fritters, etc. There is a beautiful covered and non-covered area with tables and chairs to use for breakfast, happy hour, or relaxing.

The pool is very nice, heated, and refreshing. A couple rafts and noodles are available, as well, as pool/beach towels.

The location is outstanding . . . close to everything. Parking is a bit of a challenge, however, we managed to find a free spot everyday after spending the day at the beach and then walked everywhere at night.

We found the price about $50 per night high; however, we would consider staying here again and would recommend the Cypress House to others.

We were fortunate enough to come upon a last minute availability at the Cypress House during our recent trip to Key West. The room, which was the former office, had just been converted to a new room. It was tastefully decorated and included access to the front porch. The location was phenomenal to Duval Street, Mallory Square, Seaport Boardwalk and Simonton Beach area, all within walking distance. It is a bit noisy with all of the street traffic as we faced directly on Caroline. The pool and patio area is well maintained and a breakfast and social hour with appetizers is provided every day. The staff will do whatever they can to assist you with your needs. Special thanks to Richard and Dennis who made our stay magical! Looking forward to our stay next year!

I spent 5 nights there in July. The entire staff was very pleasant and helpful including sending several personal faxes for me. The room was very clean and spacious. It also had a nice second floor patio deck but it rained 3 of the days I was there so I didn't use it. The breakfast in the morning was more than the usual continental breakfasts offered by others and early evenings had light snacks to get you to your evening meal. Great location one block from Duval St. All in all a very nice experience and would definitely stay there again.

The hotel was easy to find on Caroline street in the old town of Key West. This is very convenient to Duval, Mallory Square, and other shopping and restaurants. We were met with friendly staff who gave us coupons and a flyer to “Fantasy Fest”. The staff accommodated our request to park our motorcycles close to our room. There was a nice pool in the “courtyard” along with a cabana. We arrived early and our room was ready in 15 minutes of our arrival. Our room was very nice with wooden floors, a king bed, and a modern bathroom with a huge walk in shower. We had a flat screen TV. Later during the evening, we discovered we did not have the access code to the WiFi and the front Office was closed at 9:00 p.m. Be sure to ask the clerk for the internet passcode at check-in. There were no vending machines on the premises. There was an ice machine located by the pool area. We did not have the appetizers in the cabana at 5:00 pm but instead headed for the shops. The hotel clerk mentioned “Upper Crust” as a good place to find thin crust pizza. We ate there and it was delicious! Although the bed was comfortable, we did not sleep well during our 1 night stay. The people upstairs were walking the floor all night. The window air conditioner was not efficient to cool rooms with high ceilings. This is a nice place, but for $200, we’ll stay somewhere else the next time.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 12 which allowed us to park our motorcycles closeby.

We stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month. After seeing pics on trip advisor we requested the "library room" it was huge and had so much character. We traveled down on the Key West Express from Ft Myers which made this location perfect. It is on Caroline near where the boat docks and only 2 blocks from Duval where everything is going on. It was very close to our favorite night/day spot (Irish Kevin's). The rooms were very clean, beds were super comfy and the daily happy hour was a great bonus. Eli provided amazing service at the happy hour such a great guy! If you need anything all you have to do is ask. I also love the fact it is an adult only B & B so you don't have to worry about any kids running around while you relax by the pool. I can't wait for our next trip to the Keys, definetly staying here!
