This is the first time that we stayed at this bed and breakfast. The facility is in perfect shape. The front desk is there for you and very personable. Our room was unique and very comfortable. We had a great time. Two issues that we had were the stairs, which are steep and narrow. The lack of parking is the... More

We spent a couple of nights at the Heron House on Simonton St in KW recently. Our room was on the first floor facing the pool. Our $200 room was modest, read very small. Approximately 10x12, including the built in! In fact the sleeping area was only twice the size of the bath. The bath area was large. The bed... More

We stayed here two nights during our trip. You couldn't have asked for a better location away from the main noise. The check-in was ok, we were offered a room which was the honeymoon room (had booked the most expensive room with a Jacuzzi tub). The front desk told us this was an upgrade but we could have the room... More

Perfectly located, Central to Duval Street & any downtown activity you wish while also being a nice quiet distance away for when you want quiet time. We were SURPRISED to find out there was NO on property parking?! You have to drive around the nearby streets til you find parking on your own, so plan for about a good 30-45... More

We ended up booking for an extra night in key West, because we missed our flight. Heron house was available, we booked it, arrived early the following day and had a seamless and pleasant check in. We were given a room overlooking the lovely pool area. Whilst the furnishings and decor were a little dated and old fashioned, the room... More

Our stay at Heron House was most enjoyable. From check in to check out we had a great experience. I had a special request prior to our arrival and our friend Andy at the front desk followed through on it personally. Thanks again Andy! The property and the pool were clean and well maintained. Our Deluxe Pool Room was clean... More

We stayed at the Heron House probably 18 years ago before buying timeshare property in Key West and we were very happy there so after selling our timeshare property we were excited to go back this year. We were extremely disappointed with the property. Our room was upstairs on the front of the house and extremely noisy. The room itself... More

Heron House is the perfect location for a Key West home base. Close, but not on Duval St. You can walk everywhere in the historic part of town. The garden/pool area is beautiful and breakfast outside was a great way to start the day. The food was nothing special and the coffee was ehhh, but it was great to take... More

We stayed at Heron House Court a few years back and loved it. So this time we stayed at Heron House (as opposed to Heron House Court) again, fabulous! We had a pool side room (#44) which had a double size bed, which turned out just fine. Front desk man, Andy, was cheerful, personable and friendly. All around, perfect stay.

First of all, I want to preface this review by letting you know that I was traveling on military business to Key West, not for pleasure with a significant other. The fact that my trip coincided with Spring Break caused all of the hotels near base to be extremely expensive. I was lucky to find the Heron House for just... More
