“Great Price, Great Location!”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

You can't beat the price! We stayed here for 2 nights and really liked the room and the location, being that its right on Duval street. We actually got upgraded to a larger room which was very nice. Breakfast was really good and the owner was really helpful. My only complaint was that the AC froze up and was not working the whole time. But I thawed it out and it was working just fine after that. You can tell the owner truly takes pride in providing her customers a good experience. I would highly recommend this place! If we come back to Key West we will be staying here again!

My partner and I stayed here for 9 days and loved it. We usually stay at a gay guesthouse but we couldn't afford it this year. This place was great. We had room 2 which had its own private patio. The room was nice, Barbara and all the staff were great. The only bad thing is that there is no pool to lay out at, but you can go to other places and do that. Highly recommend it. It is reasonably price, has a nice breakfast and is perfectly situated on Duval.

Been to the Rum Bar multiple times during the last couple years, and always a fine spirits tasting experience. The bar is small and intimate (occupant load of 38, plus front porch) and mostly patrons who appreciate the fine rums...along with other drinks. My first experience staying at the Speakeasy Inn was just a nice. Reasonably priced rooms with a lot of privacy as there are only 5 rooms. Comfortable bed, large flat screen TV, kitchenette (minus cooking surface/oven). If your looking for a bed & breakfast experience, a great place. Barbara and staff were very friendly and accomodating. Location is close to all that is Key West, with a little less crowd. Gratis continental breakfast from 8-10am in the quaint bar area. Barbara's banana bread is fantastic! Without a doubt will be back for the bar and the Inn, and will bring friends along for the ride.

After a terrible day of travel with Spirit Airlines this oasis saved our day. Barb was so nice on the phone that it was refreshing. They got us our room and a drink with a dollar discount. After we got in the room it was a cozy little nook far enough away from the Main Street that we heard no noise. But the best part is the cute little bar attached and the fact that you are right on Duvel street where everything is happening. Next time I'm in key west this will be my place! For these two CA kids it saved our trip.

We stayed here for a girl's weekend away and had a great time. The room was large, spotless, and comfortable. We had a mini kitchenette, a walk-in shower and full closet. Since one of us had to do a little work over the long weekend, I was happy to have free wifi too. We were a little worried initially that the Rum Bar would be too loud late at night but we did not hear a thing. The breakfast was great...arrive on your shedule to enjoy the better than standard continental fare along with some special touches like freshly baked banana bread. We took a tray from the breakfast bar to our room and enjoyed dining at the table and chairs outside our room. It was shaded, quiet and surrounded by foilage - really great way to enjoy breakfast! The staff, Barbara, Bobbi, Jill & Renee are the best. And that drink The Painkiller is somewhat addicting. I hope to return to Key West with my husband in a few months and am hopeful The Speakeasy has a room available for that trip!

Room Tip: Our room had 2 queen beds and was located on the R side of the building if you are facing from the f...

We did not stay here, but we stopped in for drinks a couple times. The bartender, Nick (a fellow Ohioan), was so damn friendly that I felt obliged to leave the Speakeasy a good review. I cannot speak for the rooms. The bar, however, is fantastic. Tons of good rum, some rare, some not, but all reasonably priced. I tried rums I've never heard of, and did a couple shots of obscure rums that Nick suggested. My girlfriend and I even loved the restaurants that Nick suggested. This was just a great little bar to stop into for cocktails before or after dinner. We are no doubt coming back to Key West sooner than later, and this place will, without question, be on the list of spots to return to. Do yourself two favors while here: first, order a house rum cocktail on the stiff side. Second, try a tiny snifter of the Diplomatico. You will not regret either!

We recently stayed at the SpeakEasy Inn in Key West and wanted to take the opportunity to recommend it to other travelers. Bobby and the team took very good care of us.

The rooms are very pretty and well appointed. The location is perfect. Close enough to the action and just far enough away for the noise not to bother.

There is a lovely pub downstairs and many good restaurants in the area. The southern most point is just a stone's throw away.

Breakfast was included in our stay too.

I would stay there again without hesitation. Thanks Bobby!

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
