“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. Kat greets you each moring with a smile and happy hour is a pleasure with Roy. Cory has done an outstanding job accomodating visits. We have always had a great experience. We'll be back.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the main house and the cottages in the back area. All is good.

Very nice & cosy rooms for a reasonable price!
The breakfast could be a little better since everything is wrapped and kinda "artificial", but I guess that's what a "Continental Breakfast" is like.
Book a room to the yard, cause it could get busy on the street (especially on the weekends) and those old wodden buildings let every noise in.
Would stay here again - very good "bang for your buck". Rooms are clean, big and got the typical Key West theme. Also comes with a nice relaxing balcony.
Parking is available in the back, which is precious in the heart of Duval Street!
We got a good deal on that room via Groupon.

Room Tip: book a room to the yard

We would like to thank this guest for the good remarks, however we are wondering if this review is for a different inn. First of all, we are not on Duval Street, we are on a quiet side street off of Duval Street, and we don’t have parking in back. Our parking is directly next to the inn. Nothing is wrapped in our Continental Breakfast, except for the butter and jams. Take a look at our menu posted on our website. Lastly, we don’t offer any discounts through Groupon.

We wonder if the guest stayed at one of the other inns with “Duval” in their names?

Sincerely,
Cory Hanson
General Manager

The Duval Inn is in a great location of Key West, right off the main drag about a half block and in the middle of the strip. So it was quiet. We stayed for a week so stayed in three different rooms. They were all nice and clean, but the two in the main house upstairs were really nice. Breakfast is pretty lite but good. Everyday is happy hour at 5:00, which was our favorite part of the stay, Kevin the bartender is great, tells interesting stories and makes it a lot of fun! They have a nice pool. The front desk staff were nice and accomodating.

One day we rented a car and drove up to another key and went to dinner at Little Pine Island, it was a nice experience, expensive (about $300 for two) but well worth it. You take a boat out to a private island for dinner. I had checked into staying there but it would have been $13,000 for a week. We figured we would at least go to dinner there while in the area. I would reccomend it.

But back to Duvall Inn, I would stay there again, great location, clean rooms and happy hour!

Room Tip: We liked the upstairs rooms, the one overlooking the pool and the one with it's private entrance...

First time to Key West. Loved this little Inn, great location to the fun stuff in town for getting to everything. Loved the pond like pool, had a nice dip. Beautiful room with ceiling fans sitting table for snacking. Super treat.

Best deal in Key West! My sister and I had the pleasure of staying at The Duval Inn for three fabulous nights. The Inn is perfectly quaint Key West style. The Lauren room was beautifully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff were very warm and welcoming. Especially Bartender Roy (who we fondly referred to as Kevin) and Kat at the front desk.

We loved everything about this Inn. The location, the comfy pool chairs, the patio and gardens, FREE happy hour and breakfast every morning.

We will definitely be back!

This was mine and my husband’s first time at a bed and breakfast so we didn’t really know what to expect. We stayed in the Dolphin room, separate from the main house, and it was lovely. The bed was quite comfortable and the pillows were heaven. We had control of our own AC and could make the room whatever temperature we liked. The shared bathroom down the hall was good as well. It was pretty big, although my tall husband with a wide wing span found the shower a bit tight. The cocktail hour was a nice touch and they had the basics to make you what you needed. We were really enjoying the bed and breakfast experience until breakfast time the next morning. The breakfast was exactly like a continental breakfast at a standard Holiday Inn. There was nothing hot to eat, unless you count toasting a bagel. They had mini little quiches and the bare minimum of fruit to eat – a few apples and orange slices. They had cereal and bagels. We were expecting something a little more from a bed and Breakfast, scrambled eggs at least, but they had nothing of the sort. We had to go out and get breakfast elsewhere. We weren’t the only ones who felt that way either. We overheard another family saying they would have to go somewhere else for breakfast too. I don't feel like you should have to go to breakfast somewhere else when you're staying somewhere described as a bed and breakfast. So overall we give the Duval Inn a 2.5 out of 5 with a wonderful bed and a disappointing breakfast.

nboater, Owner at The Duval Inn, responded to this review, October 1, 2012
First of all we want to thank this guest for their comments on the room and the bed. As to the disappointing breakfast, a continental breakfast is a very simple light, nutritious and healthy meal which traditionally consists of four or five dishes. It is typical to include pastries, yogurt, perhaps some butter, jam or marmalade, juices, cereals and fresh fruit, enough to get you going in the morning. This type of breakfast is meant to be quick and light, not a full meal that will satiate a person’s hunger for many hours. It is rare to find heavy foods such as cooked meat, pancakes or potatoes. We follow this tradition and clearly state on our website that we serve a continental Island Breakfast. If this guest had inquired about the breakfast when checking in we would have been happy to explain our morning menu. We try to please and accommodate everyone but that is not always possible. So that there will be no future misunderstandings on this we have now posted a menu of our Continental Island Breakfast online.

Sincerely,
Cory Hanson
Duval Inn Director

This was a nice inn. One block off Duval Street worked well. We arrived a few minutes before the end of happy hour. Roy extended happy hour a little to allow us time to get our things in the room. Our room was nice and clean. The room was small but well appointed. If you are looking for a sofa and desk in your room, this is not the place. However, if you want a nice clean place to lay your head at a great price this fits the bill. We would definitely stay here again.

Built upon one of the most advantageous blocks on the island, the Duval Inn is steps away from Duval Street, but our poolside lounges are just far enough away from the excitement to coax our guests into peaceful naps. Clean, fresh rooms with all the charm you'd expect from a tropical Inn, yet each room has all the amenities you would find at a modern hotel. Welcome to Paradise.
