Another wonderful trip in spite of the restrictions for COVID-19. The entire staff at Alexander's developed and presented a most easy and confiortable social distancing experience across the entire property. Understanding there would be restrictions and changes in how things have been done for many years, the breakfast process was smooth and efficient. All guests were very respectful of the staff and other guests' space, the bar area and pool were set up so as to gently remind everyone of the need for social distancing...it was all so beautifully done. And, as far as the stay, it was perfect as any stay can be. The staff is wonderful and friendly. I was usually the first one down for breakfast so Paola would put my coffee out--knowing from the very first morning how I like it. As all the staff were coming in, each stopped to say a quiet hello and get on to their work...they are the best!! I have been staying at Alexander's for 20 years on and have never had an unpleasant experience or a stay lacking in expert hospitality. If you are wondering where to stay in Key West, look nowhere else...this is THE place to stay and relax, enjoy, feel like you are truly in Paradise. Thank you, Laura and all the staff, for the wonderful job you continue to do to make a stay with Alexander's a remarkable experience.

I have had the pleasure of staying at Alexander’s Guest House several times over the last decade. This year was different from any previous years due to Covid 19 and a few family tragedies I have experienced in 2020. I decided to make my annual trip even though I was apprehensive due to these personal issues and our worldwide pandemic. My “family” at Alexander’s went above and beyond in taking care of me and of all of the house guests that were staying during my 9 day visit. I can’t express how much my stay there helped me during this challenging time in my life and their professionalism, nurturing nature and attention to safety in this difficult environment we are dealing with at this time was simply amazing. I cannot imagine being anywhere else when I visit my favorite destination in the world. I have been all over the world and if I were given only one place to be for every vacation I ever take in the future, it would be my second home at Alexander’s Guest House in Key West.

Enjoyed a 3 day stay in Key West, staying at Alexander's was definitely a treat! From Robyn, Tim, Daniel and the rest of the staff, we were treated like family and they were very accommodating. The place is tidy and super clean, the pool area was delightful, breakfasts were terrific. Happy hour is a definite to get to know the other guests. Transportation was easily accessible within 2 blocks of the GH for the Duval Loop bus. We definitely plan on returning hopefully next year for a longer stay. Special thanks to Tim and Daniel! B&B we definitely be back hopefully next year for a longer stay!

Omygosh...where to start. The week was amazing. Way more than anticipated. Staying at Alexander's was definitely a treat! From Robyn to Tim and the rest of the staff, they treated us like family and were SO accommodating. The place is tidy and super clean. The food...AMAZING. We were in room 10!! Understood the favorite room among other guests. We certainly saw why upon arrival. We will be back. Hopefully it will be an annual retreat to celebrate. We could not have ask for better! Thanks you guys! See you soon. David & Kevin

Thank you so very much David and Kevin for sharing this! Whoooo hoo! We are so excited that we were able to achieve our greatest wish, which is that you had a wonderfully, relaxing time. Yes, Robyn and Tim are wonderful, we are so lucky to have them with us. Tim and Robyn have a true heart for service, as well as all of our wonderful staff. Thank you for saying you felt our lovely, expanded, continental breakfast was amazing! Almost all of the items are homemade, so thank you...we put a lot of love into it. Super clean is our scene! We even fog all of our guest rooms at every check out and common indoor areas with a botanical product which is non-toxic, but kills 99.9% of all viruses/bacteria and fungi. This, of course, is in addition to our normal cleaning practices...it really does make for a sanitized, clean, fresh environment! Thank you again for staying with us! So glad you enjoyed Room 10...you are right it is a favorite little hideaway here. We look forward to seeing you next time! Laura and All of Your Friends At Alexander's Guesthouse

Enjoyed a week in Key West staying at Alexander’s. The accommodations were modern, clean and relaxing. We’ve stayed at other guest houses and hotels in the town, but Alexander’s is by far number one. We will definitely stay here again. The staff was amazing, especially Tim! The breakfast was perfect and the pool always refreshing. Oh, don’t forget happy hour! Suggest renting bikes during your visit for fun exercise around the town and getting around. The location was perfect and ideal. We had a late afternoon flight as still was able to enjoy the pool! Can’t wait to make it back.
