What a perfect little treasure. Quirky and a bit ramshackle but for me that adds to the charm. Our host was most courteous and provided us with the means to have a DIY supper sat looking out at the ocean. It really was a beautiful setting and although the highway is close it still felt like a tranquil get away....

This is not a four star resort BUT instead a take you back to where your parents stayed when going to Key West for a vacation, This is a very small Inn BUT yes it is clean. The sunrise is fantastic along with the small quiet beach. Considering the price of other hotels in the area this is very reasonable.

Rachel was very accommodating - which was really appreciated. I wish we could have stayed longer, but did not have any extra time. We stayed in the Key Lime suite. Newly redone bathroom and cozy/fun bedroom. The pool and dock looked great, but didn't have time to enjoy them. We plan to come back!

Initially the staff is friendly and attempted to satisfy. It was my husband and my experience this Inn needs updating very badly. My mattress was old and coming apart also dirty and uncomfortable. In the middle of the night the shower was leaking in the room above us water running down our wall. The owner apologizing and attempted to clean...

Lovely location right on the Atlantic. Very quaint, funky and laid-back, perhaps a bit too much!! Grounds are in need of maintenance, and better outdoor furniture. Our room was clean and bright, beds comfortable, and there was a nice sized refrigerator too! Rachel was helpful with restaurant and sunset suggestions...thank you! Biggest negatives were the mixing valve in our shower...

We stayed here 2 nights while travelling from Key Largo to Key West over the holidays. We will definitely be coming back as the view from the units was amazing & the friendliness of the inn staff was beyond compare. We stayed in two different rooms, as we booked about a month prior, so we were happy that White Sands...

Only thing is I wish the beach was more "swimable" but this was an awesome find with my husband and I. We got a beach front room and stayed a couple nights. The style of the room was cute and tropical. The beds were comfy. It was tucked away from everything else. Nothing better than a nap under one of...

Went for a three day trip. Wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Dolphin room; it is on the adjacent property. The room has a full kitchen, king size bed, recliner, and futon. Clean and plenty of dishes. Large enough so a family of four would not trip over each other.Great view of the ocean and large...

My wife and I stayed in room #3 Hibiscus for one night on the way to Key West, wish we stayed longer! The room was bright and spotlessly clean and two steps from the beach! Sunrise was something I cannot stop thinking about. Can't wait to return!

This is a small family run hotel. It has a beautiful view of the sunrise. Each room is unique. We have stayed in most of them. Our favorite is room seven (upstairs beach side). It has a lovely view of the water from the balcony deck. This is the best place for an early morning breakfast at sunrise. The management...
