“Favorite Place to Stay in Key West!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have stayed at the Island City House on 4 different trips. All the rooms have different themes so it made it fun to stay in a different room each time. Location is great and the morning breakfast out in the courtyard was way better than average!

Island City House is my choice place to stay everytime I'm in Key West.

Room Tip: Rooms have all different set ups including separate bedrooms so be sure to ask about different rooms...

we stayed in the cigar house-beautifully decorated-spacious-well appointed-ex. full kitchen, full bath, large main area with small dining area, large bedroom and as we had a top floor, lovely view from balcony..it was our first trip there and we were pleasantly surprised at the small amount of noise that could be heard from the street.the gardens here are lush and the trees tall and close together so that at even a high level, you feel protected from the street..not that we observed anything to be concerned about. key west's reputation for rowdy behavior hardly seemed appropriate as we observed very little bad behavior from any where in town, even after dark the noise was confined to duval and then it wasn't too bad..we went with a 5 yr old so we stayed away from the bars and clubs after dark-the only problem we had with adults and alcohol was at the hotel itself and a hotel can't control the fact that some of it's guest imbibe too much and keep everyone within a city block awake and concerned..but these guests only did this for one night to an excessive extent and it was raining on their last night in town-it rained a lot and my advice is to plan for alternate means of travel home than the key west airport if you go in the "rainy season"! it's a long drive to miami!!

Room Tip: take the bottom floors if you don't want a cardio workout getting to your room-get a room in the...

We have been to Key West several times. But this was our first stay at Island City House. And may I just say...We loved it! The gentleman that checked us in was very nice. We had a one bedroom, it was very clean and had plenty of room. Having a kitchen was very handy. And my husband loved that they had onsite bike rentals. It was an easy walk to all of our favorite hang outs.

Room Tip: It was handy having a first floor unit. We had a ton of luggage from the cruise we had just been on...

This wasn't my first choice of hotel in key west but turned out to be the best decision I made! A beautiful hotel where we had a gorgeous suite (we only booked a room but this is obviously the standard here!). Location was great - really close to duval st and the nightlife as well as shopping during the day. Only downside I would say is that parking was a bit of a nightmare - took us 45 mins to find somewhere in the neighbourhood to park, however I think this is the case for most hotels here. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again.

We saw great reviews but it's even better in person. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are cozy and a perfect combination of charm and efficient. The location is great. If you don't like the 10 min walk to Duval you can rent bikes and get to your favor bar or Mallory square in less than 5. We loved it!

Just getting around to the review. We had a great time. Shared a two bedroom suite with friends. It was a nice, second floor suite with a porch. Most of the suites have their own porch. The pool area is nice. Location is great. Walking/biking distance to so much. (We rented bikes for the week - very good deal.) I'd definitely stay there again. Great staff, nice breakfast daily. Only glitch was the internet connection was spotty, but then again, there was too much to do to be bothered!

Room Tip: Get a suite with a porch!
