Rented the Cabana room (room 10). Over $600 for 2 nights. CRAZY. Bathroom is super small I that kept banging myself on the wall trying to move around. The room is very small with a queen bed. Facilities are lacking. Lights are too bright. Housekeeping didn't happen even after we were out all day. Will not stay hereagain and will just rent one of the more proper hotel/resort.

Ms. Iman, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. All of us at the Duval House are disappointed to learn that you did not have an amazing time at our property. It is a matter of pride with all of us to provide our guests with an unparalleled experience. I would like to take a moment to address some of the points in your review: 1) As you mentioned, you stayed in one of our Cabana rooms. We recognize that our Cabanas are on the smaller side, which is why they are ALWAYS AMONG THE LEAST EXPENSIVE ROOMS IN KEY WEST. 2) Key West is a resort market and you stayed with us two weekend nights. Whether you stay with us or at any of the other accommodations on the island, weekend nights always trade at a premium in Key West. 3) You booked your stay with us the same day that you checked-in. While we love and encourage spontaneity, last minute bookings severely limit what we can offer our guests. 4) When you booked the room, you were aware that it contained a queen bed. 5) Our Queen Standard rooms, which are ~50% larger than our Cabanas, usually cost ~$10-30 more per night than our Cabanas. Our King Deluxe Rooms, which are ~100% larger than our Cabanas, usually cost ~$20-$50 more per night than our Cabanas. In the future, perhaps consider booking one of these rooms? 6) We apologize, however we do not understand what you mean when you state, "Facilities are lacking." We are a simple bed and breakfast located on Duval St. Some of the buildings on the property were built around 1906 and many of our guests find charm in the history and authenticity of our property. 7) We apologize, however we do not understand what you mean when you state, "The lights are too bright." Do you mean the lights that are in your room or the lights that illuminate the footpaths in our garden? We would appreciate you sending us a note at the following email address, if and when you have a minute, so that we may investigate: frontdesk@theduvalhouse.com. 8) We apologize if you did not receive service during your stay. Our housekeeping staff is dedicated to upholding the standards that we set as ownership. One of our housekeepers would have been responsible for the cleanliness of your room during your time with us and our housekeeping supervisor would have inspected that staff member's work. We do this to ensure nothing, 'slips through the cracks.' While we recognize that we are not perfect and that mistakes do happen, the only reason we could think that you may not have received service during your stay was if you had placed your DO NOT DISTURB sign outside your door. If you had mentioned something to us during your stay, we would have me more than happy to provide service for you room. Unfortunately, it is too late for that and we apologize for the inconvenience. Again, we apologize that your experience with us did not match your expectations. Sincerely, John

We spent 2 nights here in a 3 bed cottage and really enjoyed our stay. We were checked in by Eric who was really helpful in getting us sorted out with parking and gave us some good recommendations for places to eat. The cottage itself was large and clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We would absolutely stay here again.

I wish I could give Duval House 6 stars! The experience exceeded expectations from the reservation process to the location to the staff and the entire stay. The property was beautiful and an oasis in the middle of Duval street. The pool and back courtyard were relaxing and gorgeous. The room was big and clean and the bed very comfortable. The staff were the best, from check in to the daily AWESOME breakfast. They greeted us with a choice of cold beverages of which a great beer was an option. They personally walked us around the property to ensure we were familiar with all of their services, and they pointed out all the things to do in key west with some excellent recommendations for happy hours. There were bikes to rent for a very low fee that were tricked out with baskets and bottle holders. We will definitely stay here again when we return!

Loved it. Recommend and will definitely stay here when I go back to Key West. Diana was so helpful with everything. Always greeted with cold beverages and a smile. Grounds are so pretty and relaxing. Enjoyed a late night swim. The breakfast was SO GOOD. All the people who work there are very nice. Located right in the heart of the action.

Would I stay here again? Yes! Friendly staff that delivers an ice cold beverage to your door right after checkin, friendly, fun staff. Easy to check in|out. Beautiful property, great pool and common spaces. Bed was clean, firm and large. Was this place perfect, no. My room was very small (but I was warned of that before I booked), and it wasn’t super clean. If you are super picky, this may not be the room for you, if you can relax, enjoy and forgive minor issues, stay here and enjoy.

Darren, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I would like to take a moment to address a couple of the topics your raised: 1) If you had mentioned any issues that you were having with the room while you were at the property we would have done everything in our power to rectify the situation. Unfortunately, you did not say anything to our staff while you were at the property, which is unfortunate. We are focused on providing our guests with an unparalleled customer service experience. 2) The room that you stayed in was recently gut renovated. We installed brand new floors and a brand new bathroom. I checked our records and you were only the fourth party to stay in that room since it was reopened. 3) We have an incredibly hardworking housekeeping staff that we feel does an excellent job of maintaining the high standards that we as ownership expect. If our housekeepers miss anything we have a housekeeping supervisor that checks their work before guests are allowed into the room. 4) You stayed in one of our Cabana Queen rooms. We recognize that these rooms are smaller than a typical room at a chain hotel may be. For this reason our Cabana Queen rooms are always among the least expensive in Key West. In the future, please consider one of our Queen Standard rooms, which are 50% larger than our Cabana Queens and ~$10-$30 more per night, or one of our King Deluxe rooms, which are 100% larger than our Cabana Queens and ~$20-$40 more per night. Again, thank you for staying with us. Sincerely, John
