Having spend much time prior to my KW trip researching the KWHarbor Inn, our stay there turned out to be much like I had expected.
The location is good, especially if you plan on spending much time at Schooner Warf Bar and the Harbor area. This of course places you near the North end of Duval, thus its many blocks to the southern end. Being that most of the B&B's are centrally located to Duval, none are really that much better than the others when it comes to location, it just a matter of choice. I prefer the northern end.
The Pool facilities at the KW Harbor Inn were sufficient. I selected this B&B due to its tropical pool area, and the Harbor Inn's pool rules. This is an Adult only B&B. The pool is open 24 hrs and topless sunbathing is allowed. The pool, and pool area are MUCH smaller that their website photo's and surround video imply. The Hottub shown there has also been removed, which was disappointing. The grounds of the harbor Inn were very tropical with lots of palms, plants, and everything else that comes with a tropical environment (ie. lizards, and various small rodents).
The Housing facilities were also sufficient. I could see why some may complain if expecting everything to be perfect and modern. This is afterall a very old house, but it still met our needs.
The staff is a hard working bunch, and they do a very good job of keeping the place running and the clients happy.
We were lucky enought to visit the Harbor Inn while it's owner was in town (& staying there). Due to this we were able to see that he truely cares about improving this Inn as many repairs, upgrades, and improvements were being undertaken during our stay.
Unless your just looking to complain or be miserable, I can't see why you would have a bad stay at the Key West Harbor Inn.
