“Another Great Week at the KWHI”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is the second time we have stayed at the Key West Harbor Inn. It's location is perfect - easily walkable to Duval St and waterfront dining, but once inside the gate it is still a quiet oasis. The layout of the grounds encourages a social setting, and the afternoon happy hour provides an opportunity to meet the other guests. However, it's still easy to find a lounge chair and read a book.

Tracy and the staff are wonderful, and work hard to make your stay enjoyable. They are knowledgeable about all the local activities and can coordinate everything from bike rentals to sunset cruises to dinner recommendations and reservations. The rooms are comfortable and clean.

We are due for a return trip to Key West in two years, and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Do your homework - they have rooms to suit everyone. Visit the website (they have pictures of the i...

This is the third trip to KWHI for our group. The property never gets old and the staff are wonderful. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable. The location is convenient to the Duval madness and some great waterfront dining, yet very quiet. (except for us guests)

you cannot go wrong with this B&B!!!

Once again I come away from a trip to this inn being very upset that I can only make the trip every other year. There are very few places you can travel where on your second trip you walk through that gate, look at that tropical garden and sigh, "I'm home". There are very few places that give you a feeling where as you load your bag into the cab, you look back and say to yourself...724 days until I come back. Key West is all about a laid back stress free vacation. That's what you get at this hotel. You are close enough to enjoy the craziness without a cab ride, yet far enough away to be able to close your eyes at 10PM and go to sleep. Tracy and the staff do everything and anything to make your stay perfect. It's a cozy B&B in a beautiful historical old property where you will meet other folks, enjoy breakfast and happy hour by the pool, have a comfortable walk to sunset at Mallory Square, have easy walking access to great food and drinks, make new friends and absolutlety want to come back. You will not be disappointed. I guess the best way I can put this is that Key West wouldn't be Kew West if I was staying anywhere else!

When booking do yourself a favor and take 15 minutes to look at the KWHI website. Look at the rooms, they have pictures of almost all of them. Then, take the time to TALK to Tracy. Tell her what you want, chances are she'll be able to accomodate. If you want a room that's quiet and isolated from the pool in case folks are there enjoying themselves into the evening ask her, she has them. If you are like me and want to be as close as possible to the pool and tiki bar, ask her, she has that too. If you want privacy and a big room, ASK, she's got it. Want a view of the harbor? Ask! Get the point! The rooms are generally different, even in equal price ranges. Part of the beauty of this place is that it is NOT the hotel off the interstate. Even the rooms that are furnished the same aren't decorated the same. Different colors and bathroom decors etc.

We have stayed at Key West Harbor Inn many times in the past years and this place continues to be one of our all time favorites. Rooms are bright and clean, grounds are well kept and beautiful. The manager (Tracy) continues to work with guests (returning as well as new) to make sure their stays are all they can be. She makes you feel like you and your stay is important to her. We have found some places we have stayed get complacent with their facilities. Key West Harbor Inn continues their upkeep and improvements. They care about what the guest say and want. We have stayed a few other places in Key West before,but will only stay here now. Who can complain about the large selection of items at breakfast, the lemonade and tea during the afternoon or the Happy Hour!!!! In Key West, location can be everything. This is where we want to stay. Thank you Leonardo and Tracy for making our stay a REAL vacation. God Bless!

We stayed overnight at the Key West Harbor Inn for one night, in the Tobago Room. It was a lovely room attractively decorated and very peaceful. We appreciated cocktail hour around the pool, and the welcoming nature of all of the staff. We would definitely stay here again; we were sorry we were only able to stay one night.

The location of this inn to the Key West ferry is walkable. It is very centrally located, but once you're within the confines, it is very private and quiet. Perfect location for walkers. We loved it.

Room Tip: I would think any room at this inn would be excellent. The Tobago room suited us perfectly.

My husband and I and my parents stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. We had the delightful Jamaica Room and my parents had the Spacious Cuba Room. They were both large suites with King Comfy Beds, wonderful walk in showers with high quality linens and fluffy towels. I love good brand name paper products, they use Kleenix brand tissues and Cottonelle toilet paper, the best! The staff was just so wonderful, Tracy the innkeeper was awesome, friendly and had great suggestions for food and fun. The continental breakfast was self serve and had wonderful choices of bagels, pastries, cereal, fresh fruits, hard boiled eggs, coffie, tea, juices, yogurt and donuts. The happy hour was lovely with guests relaxing around the pool having a delightful cocktail and appetizer. Many umbrella tables and lounge chairs surround the pool and the complex is fenced in for privacy and quietness. The place is just perfect for a wonderful and relaxing vacation. The location is perfect, close to Duval and many restaurants and pubs! The Best in Key West!!!

Room Tip: Every room we saw looked awesome, check out their website for details.

The KW Harbor Inn came highly recommended by a good friend who had stayed there several years ago. We were in no way disappointed. The beautiful, clean, secluded garden and pool were very relaxing and a great way to visit with fellow guests and catch tips for what to do and where to eat. Our second floor room was just right for our needs and very clean. Tracey heads up a friendly staff and she was always available with helpful hints and willing to help book activities and excursions. We highly recommend Captain Alex's Sunset Dinner Cruise. With a fantastic location, great afternoon happy hour, welcome AC and other amenities, we highly recommend this delightful B&B experience in the Conch Republic.
