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.
