Wonderful we stayed 3 nights our innkeeper Simmona was fabulous. There is a lovely pool area fabulous breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs, yogurt, bread selection etc.. the happy hours included a selection of wine, beer, cheese and crackers etc.. The inn is in walking distance to restaurants such as Duffy’s. The last day our innkeeper was Bellyn and she was very gracious also. During our stay we met many wonderful guests. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I recently stayed here during our visit. We were looking for a place centrally located in Old Town and this worked really well. We picked a 2nd floor balcony room and we are happy we did. The room was very comfortable. It was nice sitting on the balcony enjoying the breeze. The host and staff was very professional and helpful. Our room faced Truman Ave, but the street noise never bothered us. The Inn does keep the porch lights on all night, if the room being lit up bothers you, the shutters can be closed. The pool is a nice benefit. We will definitely look to stay here the next time we visit.

We had an enjoyable stay during Christmas holidays 2018. We found it difficult finding breakfast & coffee spots when travelling through the Keys but their continental breakfast of fruit, yogurt, pastries & waffles was perfect. Hard boiled eggs (already peeled!) was the prefect punch of protein. No vanity in the bathroom which was awkward for make-up, etc and no bathtub as many people like to soak in a tub, but the shower was huge, new and hot water plentiful. Yes, it's true there is no TV as written in other reviews and perhaps they could mention that in their room description but you'll be so tired from sight-seeing you'll crash when you hit the comfortable beds and pillows. The only down-side of our room was there was no outlet behind the headboard for my husband to plug in his CPAP machine. He simply turned himself around in the bed to connect to the outlet at the end of the bed and problem solved! Really loved the chatting with the other guests and sitting on the porch rocking chairs --good job!

The best thing about this Inn was the location , followed by the very nice knowledgeable hostess and the porches! Very pretty curb appeal however inside seemed a bit “tired”, in need of some attention. Carpets clean but older with obvious bleach marks , bathrooms not tiled and older but clean , shower inserts with curtains, some painting would be helpful on the beautiful porch. Breakfast is great coffee and basically continental , bagels and hard boiled eggs with nice fruit on plastic table cloth. Hostess however would go out of her way to help any guest and knew so much about Key West! . Homey, like an older relatives home but with some attention and sprucing up could be so much more.
