We stayed at the Tropical Inn late Feb-early March, and are already making plans to come back in 2 years. The inn was in a perfect location, up just enough on Duval St. to be quiet, but close enough to be convenient to anywhere. We stayed in the Banyantree Suite, on the backside (not streetside) of the main house, so it was always quiet. Our room was very spacious (it had an extra sitting room which was perfect for keeping our luggage out of the main bedroom). The room was extremely clean, and the bed was the most comfortable bed my husband says he has ever slept on! The breakfasts were FABULOUS!! Good variety of items, fresh, and served at a convenient time (8:30 - not too early). Brandi was wonderful at getting us same-day reservations to 2 restaurants (7 Fish and Santiago's Bodega) that I'm sure we would not have gotten into on our own. (Thanks!! They were wonderful recommendations!)
The jaccuzzi was wonderful after a long day of shopping, snorkeling, biking, and eating! Just a word of caution - we went down one night about 10:00 to relax and there was a nude couple in the hot tub. Okay, a little surprising, but this IS Key West, so not a big deal. The only thing was when they left, they went out through the gate, into the neighborhood. I don't think they were paying guests at the inn!! (Maybe the fence needs a better lock!)
All in all, we had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back. We are trying to get a big enough group of friends to be able to rent out most of the inn ourselves.
BTW, if you go, renting bikes is the BEST way to see Key West. EXTREMELY easy to bike around, even if you haven't biked in years (or all winter!) Plus, you get a discount from the inn if you rent your bikes from the place right across the street. What could be more convenient?
OH!!!! And DON'T miss the sunset celebration every night at the pier! It's always changing and always beautiful!
