It is a plus to leave the car in the B&B parking lot because parking is tough and from this innone can walk to most every place of interest. My only somewhat negative comment is that the breakfast was not special. However, being able to sit outside on the porch or by the pool is great.

We stayed at LaPensionne between the 25 Feb and 1 March 2012. It is a very charming old fashioned B&B with very good and helpful staff. Yes the rooms are a little bit dated but it adds to the charm of the place. Everything is very clean and the breakfast is served every morning by a very fun loving lady....

This is the second time we have stayed at La Pensione and it was, like the first time, a wonderful experience from start to finish. The staff is ultra-accommodating and the location could not be more perfect for exploring Key West. I HIGHLY recommend that you plan a visit here!

We stayed here Nov. of last year for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it. If your coming to the keys and are looking for a TV, stay home. There are no TVs in the rooms here and it was quite refreshing and a great way to "unplug". The Inn itself is nice, most folks say it lack charm,...

My boyfriend and I stayed at La Pensione for 2 nights and we were very satified! We had a room that shared the balcony and took full advantage of it! The room was a decent size and had a king size bed. (Not the most comfortable thing on the planet but it also wasn't the worst) We had french doors...

My husband and I and another couple stayed 2 nights at this Inn .We had adjoining rooms from the balcony #7 and #8 . The rooms are large enough but have no charm at all. The bathrooms are not well equipped and we were given plastic cups . The balcony is nice but the balcony furniture is old, uncomfortable and...

We stayed 2 nights at La Pensione. They have parking space which is good (just off the street, so not completely secure). The room is very dated and really old fashioned with ugly carpets and a very very noisy air con that only has an on/off switch so you can't change the speed, timer or anything even though the buttons...

We stayed here with another couple in the two 2nd story king bed suites with the walkaround balcony facing Truman Street. We brought a car but didn't use it and the parking here was free. The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean, ac and ceiling fans and en suite bathroom/showers. With our rooms having french doors to the balcony...

We stayed here twice in two different rooms and enjoyed it both times. The rooms are comfortable and well-kept. The people who run the place are very nice, and the clientele seems sedate (not the Key West party animals you find in some other hotels). They offer bike rentals that are modestly priced and the bikes are in good condition....
