Tropical Inn
Ranked #14 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2012

the hussle of duval street is out your front door but behind the door is a private tropical peaceful oasis. A very small B&B that is top notch for quiet poolside relaxation. The rooms with private garden tubs are amazing. Rent a bike that is the best way to see everything without having to walk too much. for a trip on the key west express, it was a great 1 night getaway. They stored our suitcases for us so we could have a carefree day before departure

Room Tip: go for the cottage rooms worth the extra money

My new wife and I enjoyed 4 days at the Tropical Inn for our wedding/honeymoon and were very pleased from start to finish. First, you cant beat the location - just like many other reviewers have already stated, its right in the heart of Duval yet offers a very lush paradise on the grounds. Its simply the best of both worlds! We stayed in one of the cottages which offered an awesome private patio and jacuzzi. All rooms in the cottage were very clean and updated. One thing we loved about our room as well as the others we asked to tour is that they were each unique, inviting, and perfectly Key West. We were set out to get a "true" Key West experience and Tropical Inn was perfect for setting the tone. We enjoyed the breakfast put out by the staff each day we were there and found it to be quite nice. This was our first trip to Key West and are very happy to have found Tropical Inn for our accomodations. I think we have found our spot in Key West for years to come! Thanks to all the great staff at Tropical Inn for a truely memorable experience!

From the moment we stepped foot into the Tropical Inn, to the moment we left, we felt like we were in our own private oasis. The innkeepers, Allan, Jane, Brandi, make you feel just like at home. They were so accommodating in our late booking, that we stayed in the Conch room for the first night, then the Tuckaway cottage for the next three nights. The transition was seamless and each room both memorable.

About the rooms....both were perfect, new, fresh, clean, and relaxing as beyond expected. The pictures online really don't do it justice. The Conch room was beyond clean, new, and the private sitting area was very warming and romantic. My boyfriend and I loved it so much that we didn't want to move. Then we went to the Tuckaway cottage, and that was true indulgence where we didn't think we could get better. The room is a bit older in the sense that it was built earlier in our opinion from the conch, yet the level of privacy , detail, spaciousness, and amenities, surpasses our previous room. LOVED the private sitting area and sunken tub with the French doors!!! Either way, both rooms were BEYOND GORGEOUS!!!! Next time, we want to stay at the Gecko garden or pineapple hideaway, if the savings oblige!!!!

Location cannot be beat here, the proximity to the happening bars are only minutes away, yet the quaintness of the shops and quiet bars and phenomenal restaurants are only steps away. It's in the center of it all with the perfect amount of peacefulness to have an incredible night's sleep

The daily breakfast was beyond satisfying, health and delicious without feeling weighed down or over eating. The pool/hot tub and grounds was beyond peaceful and relaxing.

The bike rentals were brand new and really appreciated Brandi taking the time to map out our own tour of the island.

All in all, we would never stay anywhere else, after our experience here. You cannot go wrong!

Room Tip: If you have the finances to splurge, go for one of the larger cottages..gecko garden, tuckaway, pine...

The Tropical Inn was the perfect place for a couples get-away to Key West. We stayed for 3 nights, and I would definitely go back if we ever return to the area! When booking the trip, we knew we wanted someplace on Duval Street (to be in walking distance to all of the action). The location was perfect; while we could easily walk to the "bar" scene, we felt we were on the "quieter" end of Duval, which was exactly what we were looking for.

They have bikes on-site, which we rented one afternoon to ride around the town. The pool and hot-tub area is so relaxing and we usually ended-up there for a pre-dinner "dip." Speaking of dinner, we walked every night to some fabulous nearby places, and visited the wine bar right next door on more than one occasion.

The inn keepers were friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast exceeded my expectations. Absolutely a fantastic place to stay!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Gypsy Mermaid Room, upstairs. It was a little small, but perfectly adequate for 2...

this is the first time that the pictures of the hotel meet expectations. great setting, calm atmosphere and pleasing environment
the sleeping arrangements were great and the room very clean. the nose level was bad as there were many motorcycles in the area but then again that is what we went for. the breakfast was very well presented and the eating area was even better.
i would have liked the hot tub to be hotter but it was adequate for my wife. the location could not be better and the ammenities were also close by. the staff was pleasent as well as helpful when it came to advice.

Room Tip: the rooms with a balcony are better

Charmin, romantic, peaceful, private, yet in the middle of all the action. The rooms are clean, spacious, and ever so lovely. We stayed at the most economical and yet we had every thing we needed, pool, hot top, back yard. The continental breakfast is not only delicious, you can sit by the pool at the lovely tables for as long as you like.

Room Tip: From the least expensive to the most expensive all rooms hold it's own charm. Check their websit...
