“Great value in the Keys”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We spent 4 days in Key West at The Artist House on Fleming. We stayed in The Hemingway suite which was roomy enough to unpack all our bags and not feel crammed in. The room provided a sofa (which was also a sofa bed) and a wonderfully comfortable King size bed. The Artist House is a little off the beaten path, but that is what we preferred. If you are going to stay right on the main strip, you will pay alot more. This place is in a nice quiet neighborhood. There is a wonderful bakery within walking distance. Also Eaton St Seafood is only a 3 block walk - best lobster roll I have ever tasted and Azur restaurant right across the street with some very nice selections (and great coffee).
Our room was clean and comfortable with a nice deck outside with comfortable seating. There is a nice little "spa" pool with just enough space to cool off or soak a bit while sunbathing. The staff is friendly and helpful (but not overbearing).
They provide a nice upgraded continental type breakfast with pastry, bread, cereal, mini-quiche and a wonderful variety of fresh fruit. Always seemed to be plenty available, regardless of how early or late we ventured into the kitchen (within the scheduled breakfast time). The only cons are that since the house is old, lots of creaky floors and the room we choose had a small bathroom. But I don't think the cons are enough to reduce the rating to anything but excellent. I would go back to this place if we ever visit the Keys again. Very enjoyable experience!

We spent two nights at this B&B in April 2013 (Whitehead room). It is located in an old Victorian mansion. The room was very nice and quite big. There was an outdoor area with comfy chairs, a (very!) heated pool. The breakfast was really fantastic - one of the best we've ever seen in a B&B. That being said, the bathroom (and the bathtub in particular) was really quite dirty. We were surprised, as that didn't fit in with the rest of the place.

Thank you so much for the great review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do sincerely apologize for the stains in the tub. We since have had the stains removed from this tub and can assure you that it was stains and not dirt. We are happy to hear that aside from the tub, you were able to find the house above average in the cleanliness department! We hope to see you again soon!

Maddie and I stayed for two nights June 10 to 12, in the Hemingway suite. We wish we could have stayed longer! Jo was solo helpful with information on the best places to visit and gave us maps, recommendations and ideas on where to eat etc., along with discount vouchers for them all. We hired push bikes from the House and had the best time cycling around old Key West looking at the beautiful old houses and exploring Duval street....you have to see the street performer, Jack Sparrow, soooo clever. Breakfast was to die for, such a huge range of delights to choose from. To us, Artist House on Fleming and Jo, Jess and Trevor, set the standard for B & B's in Florida. Thanks mates and we WILL be back.

My girlfriend and I stayed here while celebrating our friend's wedding. I was pleasantly surprised by The Artist House on Fleming. The house was cute, rustic and welcoming. Our room was cute and comfortable. When you wake up in the morning, they have a breakfast buffet filled with fresh fruit, pastries and juices. In the afternoons, they have a happy hour at the Artist House where you can relax in their shaded patio. I'm so happy we stumbled on this when looking for a place to stay.

This will be the first place I look to book next time I'm down in Key West.

My husband and I stayed 5 nights in the Artist House. We had a wonderful stay. Jo was sweet and very helpful with recommendations for dinner and sites to see. She also suggested Southpoint divers for my husbands first dive. They were great! Breakfast was always good and our room was clean. We were in the Flager room right next to the front door. One of my only suggestions would be to have a sign that ask all guest to please be quiet coming in or out the front door, especially when it's late. It would also be nice if happy hour was at the house on Fleming as well.
Overall, we would visit again.
And thanks for the champagne! We enjoyed it!

It was our first time in Key West, a beautiful place and the hotel was a very good choice, sometimes the pictures and the description in internet do not match with the reality but this time the hotel was over our expectations, it remember me the beatiful boutiques hotels that you find in Cartagena (Colombia). The bed, the room, and the breakfast were very good, it is a place to come back.

This B&B is a breath of fresh air! It was one of the highlights of our trip! Very clean and nice. Jo was just a joy to deal with. She really made us feel welcome. The breakfast was very nice with a good selection of items. Bicycle rental right at the B&B made it simple to get some bikes and go explore the town. Jo's recommendations for food were great too!

Room Tip: We had the Mallory Room...excellent first floor location right by the kitchen.
