After our second visit here with other nearby guest house visits to compare it to we are confident we found the best. We just left and already rebooked. The staff are attentive, but not pushy; the rooms are luxurious but not pretentious; the breakfast is special. They offer on site bicycle rental that shrinks the island and is a great...

Reviewed August 3, 2016

Top-shelf. Refreshing. Welcoming. Professional. Genuine. Caring. Relaxing. Pleasant. Unparalleled. Superb. Adjectives to describe the excellent service of Alexander’s Guest House could continue for pages. And that is simply because our stay with them was one of and possibly the best, most relaxing, quality experiences we’ve ever had with lodging—and particularly lodging billed for members of the LGBTQ community and true...

Our first return to Key West since 2010, my 50th birthday and it couldn't have been better. We got a room upgrade, staff were fabulous and every cocktail hour was a great experience. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, gay women and men mixed and just right. We used to go to Big Ruby's in the 90s which is now straight....

Great place, lovely rooms, nice pool, a little small but was definitely fun. Happy hour was always friendly. Just 1 frustration for 300$+ per night, breakfast is really poor. Cereal and toast basically, would be nice to have scrambled/poached eggs etc for the price. No reason why they couldn't do it, they're got a fully functional kitchen.

Very good guesthouse in "old town" of Key West, comfortable room and bed, clean, happy hour and in general very good staff. The cleaning of the rooms was good but it looked like the staff was a bit stressed. Fantastic breakfast. Warmly recommend the guesthouse.

Alexander's has it just right .... Immaculate and classy - yet comfy and welcoming. The staff was kind and genuine, and the set-up is just perfect. The beautiful grounds, swanky room and complimentary happy hour drinks (try Jorje's Margaritas) were the icing on perfect Key West weekend. Oh yeah .... We will be back.

Service was top notch. They greeted us with a cocktail at check-in. The staff was very attentive. Daily happy hour with free cocktails and the property was very clean. The pool very private (bathing suits required) and upper sun decks (clothing optional). We will be back.

We love Alexander's! The staff are great and attentive. Very knowledgeable and make great recommendations. The rooms are comfortable and relaxing! Love the breakfast each morning. They will accommodate any allergies. Each evening there is a happy hour where you have a chance to mingle and meet other guests.
