We were welcomed as soon as we got in and made to feel right at home. It has a nice wrap around porch and a very cute feeling. Our room was very large but I was disappointed with having just a shower and no tub in our bathroom. I know it's an old home and has been slightly remodeled, but... More

We loved our stay. The pool is awesome. They have bike rentals on property. Light breakfast is included and tons of hot water. The best surprise of our stay was Roland the groundskeeper/housekeeper. Incredibly friendly and so thoughtful with cleaning our room. He folded clean clothes, put dirty clothes in a laundry bag, put our change in a zip lock... More

A friend and I spent five nights at La Pensione. Very pleasant surroundings, good clean room. Good location. Breakfast was the typical continental breakfast but consisted for homemade waffles and fresh fruit and was sufficient to carry us through the day until dinner. Brandon, Nick, Janie, and Roland were courteous and helpful and knowledgeable on restaurants and entertainment. Location is... More

My wife and I stayed there this past weekend. We had an enjoyable time. We found the hotel and room (#5) clean and the staff, particularly Brandon, more than helpful. Yes, there were no TVs or phones and the pool was small, but who really needs them anyway. Heck, You're in Key West folks, just how much time do you... More

I DO NOT ADVISE YOU RISK YOUR HOLIDAY by booking here. Only 3 of the 9 rooms look remotely like the pretty ones on the Hotels.com or the hotel's own website. We booked the last room with only the 3 lovely room pictures as a guide ... and were given the ground floor box room under the stairs with a... More

This inn is listed as a Victorian era b&b. while the exterior of the building is quite quaint, the interior of the building and the rooms left much to be desired. When we entered our room we were greeted by a very mildewy and stale smell of a faded carpet. The remodeled bathroom was unimpressive, and the room furnishings sparse... More

My wife and I stayed at La Pensione for two nights during our recent trip to Florida. A few negatives first: There is not enough parking. I squeezed into the last spot and left my car there during our stay. The exterior could use some sprucing up. There are signs warning that the plumbing and air conditioning are delicate, For...

Have been here 3 times, you feel always welcome. Most of the rooms are large, my favorite room is the tower-suite in the 2nd. floor. Sentrally situated, but some distance to Malory Square and the Sunset Pir. Very friendly host. Slight noise from Truman Avenue, but OK. I will be back here again.

The quaint clapperboard building is located on Truman Avenue within a short walking distance of Duval, Hemingway's House, the lighthouse and many more of the old town,s key features. The Inn has good off road car parking , a valuable asset in Key West. The bedroom, located on the ground floor, included a large double bed, shower and WC. While... More
