“Beautiful Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Wonderful adults only B&B with very large modern updated rooms. Breakfast was different each day. Much better than typical pastries and bagels. Breakfast burritos, sausage egg scramble, and breakfast egg/ham bagels were served on the different days we were there. Location couldn't be better.

This is a recently renovated hotel in a central location for Duval Street and the nightlife of Key West. The staff were welcoming and friendly to us on arrival and at first glance we thought the property looked very attractive and characterful.

However, we were then shown to our room which was not in the main house but in a small outhouse at the back of the pool area, which was the smallest room we had stayed on throughout our holiday trip around the Keys. Whilst it was clean and modern, there were no coffee making facilities, no mini bar, a noisy A/C unit, and poor lighting. The safe was too small for the modern traveller's needs with all our laptops, tablets, phones and mobiles.

Whatsmore, we were awoken on the first night of our stay by a drunken local who attempted to break into our gated area at the back of the swimming pool and the sound of smashing glass very close by at 230am was rather disconcerting, though of course no fault of the hotel itself. We were later told that the guy was arrested by local police but of course we were understandably nervous on our second night's stay.

Breakfast was adequate and freshly served, and really the staff and their welcoming service were the best aspect of this hotel. If we were to return to Cypress House again, we would insist on staying in the main building which looked far more characterful and we suspect had larger rooms than the small swimming pool outhouse we were placed in.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay in the main house and not in the swimming pool outhouse!

My wife and I loved it! We booked the trip for our 2nd anniversary and could not be more pleased with our stay. Their parent company made a mistake an overbooked us so we were moved to this property over a different one and if we ever go back to Key West, we will stay here again. The pool area was nice and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast each morning was great and the liming in the afternoon(happy hour) was a nice touch(especially since I read it had been canceled). Our room was huge and the bed was comfy.

One complaint I've seen about the street noise is true, BUT I only say that because I do not live in a city, I live a mile into a neighborhood so I have no clue what loud is for a city. If it gives you an idea, we were able to cross the street pretty much anytime without regard to traffic because the "busy street" others are complaining about had no cars in it!

I really have no complaints. We loved our stay and would recommend the property to anyone.

From the moment we arrivied at Cypress House we knew we were in good hands. Scott at the front desk was awesome helping us get checked in and giving tips about parking and other information. The room was lovely, modern and antique combined, and very comfortable. We had a room with a balcony and it was great a night to sit out on the balcony. The complimentary drinks by the pool daily was also a nice treat that we weren't expecting and the daily breakfast was delicious and something different everyday. We would definatly stay there again next time we're in Key West.

GREAT location, only takes minutes to walk to Duval street or the pier. The staff was incredibly pleasant and helpful. Our room was very clean and updated. The only negative was that our room was on the second floor and the stairs are quite steep with no elevator. The free breakfast could use some help, same for the free snack of the day - however, something is better than nothing. The pool is small, but clean and refreshing. Loved the house kitty who suns all day down by the pool :-) If you want to be down by the "happening" bars, this is a great spot to stay, you'll be close enough to stumble home but won't have to deal with any of the Duval street noise.

The best place ever! The staff is the best. The room was spotless. So private and quiet.It is so close to everything, you don't need a car, we walked everywhere. Walk out your room and go just a block or two and you will be at Duval Street or the harbors, Mallory square, so much entertainment everywhere..But our inn was the best! Its decorated with beautiful tropical plants, our own locked private gate.We had a nice private deck with pretty patio furniture.The room itself was very pretty, not a speck of dust anywhere. The morning breakfast was perfect,the staff work so hard to make your stay perfect. We couldn't have imagined a better place. We love it there and are planning already to come back. We will only stay at the Cypress House in room 25! Thank You staff! John and Maureen McGraw from Ohio. April 5 through 9th. 2013

Room Tip: Room 25 is very private and quiet. Its very pretty. Perfect!!!!

The Cypress House is a wonderful B&B located just a few steps from Duval Street. It was quiet and peaceful. We spent two days the last week of March at the Cypress House and never heard a bit of noise from the street. The staff (Scott and Dennis) were wonderful and very accommodating. We had a package shipped ahead of time and it was waiting in our room when we arrived. Our King with a Porch was large with a delightful porch and sitting area where we enjoyed our morning coffee/breakfast and evening wine. We look forward to returning.

Room Tip: We had a King with a Porch room number 18.
