We love staying here. It's the perfect combination of accessibly and secluded. Breakfast is wonderful, it's one of my favorite pools and the people who work here are always incredibly friendly and helpful. We've always had an exceptional stay and this year was just another to add to the list.

We have been staying at Alexander's for 22 years and it always is a class act. The rooms are comfortable , staff always friendly and will go above and beyond to accommodate in making dinner reservations, tour bookings, and quickly resolving any problems with your accommodations. Most of the rooms have been upgraded over the last few years. It is...

Alexander's is our favorite thing about returning to Key West year after year! I've now celebrated 2 big birthdays, with many other fabulous stays in between and would never dream of staying anywhere else. From the staff to the decor to the great vibe surrounding this place, it's always perfect. They really know how to make their guests feel special...

We chose Alexander's Guesthouse based on the great ratings. These ratings were confirmed by friends of ours after we booked so we felt good about our decision. Upon arrival, we were greeted like friends coming for a visit and offered a welcome cocktail. We were then given a tour of the property and shown to our room where our bags...

A great place to stay. The staff are so friendly and very accommodating - simply amazing! The breakfast is plentiful, the place is clean and the pool & Jacuzzi are wonderful! Highly recommend this guest house. Just the perfect get a way. Small but just enough. Only about 5 blocks to Duval St.

Pretty sure that this was our 20th (!) consecutive stay at Alexander's, so we may be just a little bit biased. But trust me when I say that there is no finer accommodation in Key West, especially for the LGBT community, than Alexander's. No matter what room you select (and as longtime visitors who generally stay 10 days or more),...

This is our second time staying at Alexander's and our friends' first time. We were quite happy again and our friends were impressed with their experience there. The weather was great while we were there so we spent a fair amount of time hanging out around the pool. Our room was a bit small but not too small, especially considering...

It was a joy to return to the Guesthouse - and be greeted by name and a genuine smile by every front desk "friend" each time we saw one of them. Since they are responsible for the entire guest house we saw them every where. The ambience of Alexander's is enhanced by the amazingly loyal and interesting guests. At breakfast...
