“Great Place To Stay”
Reviewed May 8, 2005

We just returned from a two night stay at the Wicker Guest House in Key West. It is actually a cluster of buildings so the rooms are all different. The place was great and the staff in the office were helpful and nice. At arrival, Lisa at the front explained parking and gave us a great recommendation for lunch. I mention the parking specifically because it is in short supply in Key West. As part of staying there, we had free parking that was right outside our room (not necessarily the norm but we were lucky, I guess). As others have mentioned, we did have to leave our keys at the front desk and they were only available to us during the day (until 8pm). We walked everywhere that we went so we didn’t have a problem with it. One thing that we thought of while we were there was the fact that there were 2 car keys on our rental key chain. Unfortunately the rental agency has them on a key chain that cannot be opened. You may want to check this before you leave the rental office and see if there is a way to separate the keys.

We stayed in the Jungle Room for about $170 per night which is not bad for the time of year, the room, and the location. The place is located right on Duval Street (though towards the quieter end of the street) so you are really in the heart of it all and within easy walking distance to everything in that area of Key West. Also, it was very secure because you have to use a code or key to get into the compound. As far as our room goes, it had a very cool décor and a little kitchen area too. Our favorite part was the full Jacuzzi in the bathroom. The picture of a Jacuzzi on their website seems to be the same room. There was also a separate shower that was very small and is not for someone who is claustrophobic. As for the rest of the place, all of the common areas were nice and we even spent a little time on the front porch figuring out where to eat dinner one night. We went down to the breakfast one morning but didn’t eat there. It wasn’t anything special to us but we did go down quite late so maybe things were picked over by then. It wasn’t a big deal because it gave us the opportunity to visit some wonderful Key West restaurants. The pool area was good and had a mix of sun and shade areas to accommodate everyone. The pool itself was heated and we had a great swim there.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to friends. While we will probably not be going back to Key West (so many other great places to go), if we did, we would stay at the Wicker again.

The positive reviews are true. We were very pleased. The Wicker is what you should expect in a Key West Guest House. Period. You feel like you have the place to yourself but yet you know the staff is there to help if you need it, you probably won't. It has every amenity you could want, we had a king size bed, a rarety in Key West, a mini frig, microwave, TV, AC, and yes the pool is heated to a perfect 86 degrees in March. If you know Key West, you know location is everything and 900 Duval is hard to beat. No need for a car. We will be Back!

My wife and I stayed at the Wicker House for two nights in early March of 05’. For frame of reference, I am 31 and she is 29. I was less than impressed with our room. We were in room #1, which is above the office and right on Duval Street. It was noisy at all hours of the night. The décor of the room was bare wood with termite tunnels around all the doors and windows. Luckily, they were no longer inhabited. I understand the island has termite problems, but that doesn't mean I want to look at the damage they caused. The shower was moldy, and the bathroom housed some sort of very small bugs that would crawl around the floor and sink if you looked really closely. Was it horrible? No. It was not worth $169 per night in high season. I would not stay here again.

What a comfortable, private, relaxed place to stay! Walking distance to almost everything you might want to do, great location. Laid back staff, yet good service. We were in a studio room (family) right by the pool. The only reality we had to face was a little noise on the street when the bars closed. Privacy/security to your room, as there are locked gates to the courtyards/rooms and pool.
