“A historic jem in key west”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We were fortunate enough to be able to spend one night in this great hotel, unfortunately they were so busy with bookings that an extended stay was not possible.We were made so welcome the rooms were large airy and very comfortable, a superb nights sleep and a good breakfast on the patio to follow. This hotel is ideally situated to explore Key West with its fabulous restaurants shops and nightlife. What a gem!!

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Artist House, albeit a short one. With seven rooms we do book quickly, especially now during Key West 'busy' season. Our location, 1/2 block from famous Duval Street, is a bonus for those staying with us.

The Artist House on Eaton has got to be one of the best places I've had the chance to stay. And now I've been there two years in a row. This Bed and Breakfast is a cut above the routine hotels you might choose. Yes, it will be a few more dollars but not so much that it will break the bank. An elegant home with elegant, knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive proprietors. There are about 7-8 rooms and we've stayed in 3 of them so far. Clean, neat, very well decorated. The breakfast, although not a hot meal, will not leave you for wanting as you head out for the day. And at the end of the day before frequenting one of Key West's wonderful restaurants they offer a nice relaxing Happy Hour on the shaded patio in the back. Want to do something special? The wonderful ladies who manage the house have so many ideas and can make a call to set it up for you. The only down side is no one is available for after hours arrivals. But they do everything possible to make your after hours arrival a good experience.

Room Tip: A variety of pricing for all of the rooms. You will not be disappointed with any of them.

We came to the Artist House for four nights and with six other friends - occupying 5 of the 7 rooms. It was truly a wonderful stay that exceeded our expectations. The highlights were:
1. Location - two blocks from the action of Duval, but far enough away for a good night's sleep
2. Rooms - the rooms were spacious and well-appointed - the suites were huge
3. Breakfast in the courtyard - a wonderful place to gather in the morning - it was the highlight for many of our group
4. The Hot Tub - larger than it looks in the pictures, great place to unwind
5. Happy Hour - enough said
6. The Staff - Jo and Laura were extremely helpful and accommodating - they made us feel at home and were quick to provide recommendations or assistance.

Our absolute FAVORITE!! Great location! Parking! Great Breakfast & Happy Hour!! We love Jo, Jess & Laura they are always very accommodating. We love sitting on the front porch w/a cup of coffee watching the world go by! It is so very relaxing sitting out back under the palm trees. They will make dinner reservations, cruise reservations etc. they have bike rentals also. Close by to everything ...with in walking distance of most attractions. Rooms are spacious and charming!

My husband and I just spent 2 nights in the Turret room. Everything was just perfect. They offer complementary breakfast with champagne for a morning Mimosa, bike rentals to get around the island, a friendly staff, and free happy hour. We enjoyed our happy hour drinks outside our room on the beautiful wrap around balcony. We had fun waving at the local conch tours while they stopped outside the inn. The Artist House was built in the 1890's and they say it is haunted by Robert the doll and Anne. Even though we did not encounter the resident ghosts on our visit, it sparked interesting conversations with locals and other tourists. We would stay here again for sure. My only mild complaint would be the noise level you hear from the street, but again, we were in Key West during spring break! Break out of the norm and stay in this beautiful house.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Artist House. Our room was roomy and comfortable, beautifully decorated. Each afternoon we enjoyed the " happy hour" on the patio with the other guests, what a great opportunity to meet others from the USA and other countries. Breakfast in the morning was also on the patio, another enjoyable experience, food selection was great. The house is withing walking distance of all the main attractions in Key West. Jo and Laura are wonderful hostesses, warm and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay, would not hesitate to return.

Prime location, Excellent facility, knowledgeable staff, Courteous staff, Nice Happy Hour, Great breakfast, Bike rentals, I assume the TV worked but I was so busy I never needed it during my 6 day stay, Well respected establishment within the community, Laundry mat 1 block away, Grocery store very close, and Book Store around the corner. Duval Street 1.5 blocks away. Why not?

Room Tip: I liked the Parlor Suite for easy access, on the street but I am used to a bit of street noise.
