“Another great trip!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

During our last three trips to Key West, my husband and I stayed at the Speakeasy Inn. We stayed in Room C once and in Room 2 twice and prefer the latter, which is upstairs and towards the back of the building with a shaded semi-private deck. We keep booking there, because the staff is super friendly, the rooms are nice, and the breakfast is tasty (not to mention Bob's delicious Pain Killers in the Rum Bar). It's in a great location near the southern end of busy Duval Street but still close enough to the action to be able to enjoy all the local sights and sounds. Of course, with the Rum Bar just outside your front door, you've got all the fun you need right there! Highly recommend staying at the Speakeasy Inn and Rum Bar!

This is a great B&B. It is close to everything. You can Rent a bike and get anywhere in under 10 minutes. You can walk to the bars, beach and southern most point. My wife and I loved this place. It was our first time staying here. We will definitely stay here again next time we travel to Key West. The owners really take care of the place. It is very clean with great breakfast and rum bar!

What a pleasure, absolute treat! Bob made the best PainKillers down at the bar and Barbara made the best cookies. What a great week. We were in a group of 4 couples and we all stayed there, what a fun stay. I felt like I was in High School again with all my buddies. I highly recommend the Speakeasy Inn and the Rum Bar is just an added treat!! Hats off Barbara!!
Rooms were clean and extremely cozy!

We stayed in Rm4 for LobsterFest 2012. We were told the room was quite small, but we actually thought it was perfect! Very clean.

The southern end of Duval is quiet, but the walk up Duval is not bad at all. Enjoyed sitting out front in the morning watching the people walk by. Or it is a very short walk to South Beach.

Barbara and Bobbie were great. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks for the great vacation. And thanks Bob for introducing us to "Shipwreck" rum. Beth L.

This bed and breakfast is well run and provides a very good breakfast. They have their own well stocked bar with friendly bartender.
The place has a very cozy,family feel and it's perfect for sitting outside with a glass of wine and people watch.
Very reasonable cost for it's location on Duval and distance from the loud bars

Room Tip: The rooms are all good but the back room is small and so is the side,under the stairs room but they...

My husband and I stayed at the Speakeasy in early November 2011 for our first wedding anniversary. We picked the inn based upon reviews we read here, which was a first for us; and I have to say, I was very pleased. We arrived before check-in and were allowed to drop our bags in their office. Our room was clean, and the bed quite comfy. The bathroom was a bit small, but it's a bathroom- so who cares right? The staff was awesome as well! The owner was quite friendly and was sure to notify us as we sat on the porch, that Jimmy Buffett was playing live down the street for free so we wouldn't miss it. Breakfast was provided each morning, and it offered a good selection of items including fresh, homemade breakfast breads, fruit, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, milk, and juice. If we ever go back, we will be sure to stay here again; and we have already recommended it to several friends and family. So go, grab some rum punch, and enjoy the porch!

Room Tip: We had a room set back from the street, and since it is Key West, I can only assume that the closer...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Speakeasy Inn is a landmark building located in the Boutique and Gallery District of Duval Street where you can shop or walk two blocks to the beach or a short stroll to world-famous Sunset Celebrations in Mallory Square! This landmark's recent renovation has preserved the original 19th century spirit of Old Town Key West. The decor in these spacious and airy suites is tropical and features hand-crafted queen beds and tables made from original 1876 pine recovered from our recent renovation. It has been restored to perfection, just for your pleasure. Each one, two, or three bedroom unit has a feeling of true Key West ambiance. You'll find collectibles taken from treasure hunts on our tropical island paradise and Havana, Cuba. Guests who require special consideration will find "accessible" units available. Amenities include kitchenettes equipped with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, toaster, private bathrooms, a large screen HD T.V., free WiFi and outdoor seating areas. We also offer a complimentary continental breakfast, free samples of our famous Painkiller cocktail and discounts on drinks at The Rum Bar! The Speakeasy Inn was the home of Raul Vaquez, who was a cigar selector at the Gato cigar factory. Raul's true passion was rum-running between Key West and Cuba. It's in that spirit that our lobby features the Rum Bar open daily from 11am to 12pm (or later). ... more   less
