If you want to rest and get away from the hustle of Duvall Street, this is a great place to stay. Beautiful rooms and felt like we were staying in a sanctuary. Great breakfast with a friendly atmosphere.

Location is perfect for experiencing Key West's prime restaurants, shops, tourist attractions. After a day of action, come back to your beautiful, relaxing room and wonderful gardens for a drink at the bar or a swim in the pool.

We stayed here for the first time in Sept and loved the location, service, and surroundings. We booked a first floor garden room in a separate building on the property and it was quiet and faced the gardens. The property overall had such lush landscaping, winding old brick paths, whimsical sculpture everywhere, as well as a koi pond and turtle... More

The Gardens is exactly what their name states. Amidst old town center of Key West is this hideaway 'shangri-la' paradise of gardens, pools, outside bar, best breakfast, piano music by local artists nightly and friendly staff! Wonderful atmosphere!

Paradise in Paradise! We stayed in cottage #9 and it was heaven. Everything about the site is just charming; from the turtles on the grounds to sweet Daniel giving wonderful suggestions about the best places to visit in Key West! Our only complaint: the espresso machine was broken and the house coffee was weak!

I enjoyed The Gardens quite a bit. I have stayed in some very wonderful properties and I would place The Gardens as one of my favorites. The rooms and the beds are very comfortable.

The Gardens Hotel impresses with its tree filled gardens, beautiful pool and courtyard as well as its eager to please front office staff. Our room looked out over the pool and was nicely furnished and quiet. Part of its charm comes from the fact that it is an older property with lots of nooks and crannies to enjoy. Lets face... More

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you felt our Gardens were not up to your expectations. They are very old gardens and they are pretty much as is with our light maintenance each day, palm fronds, leaves, etc. They are not manicured similar to a Flag Hotel or resort rather more of a natural botanical.
