I am very excited to tell you that my wife’s and my 3 day stay at The Almond Tree Inn was fabulous. After searching through the reviews on Tripadvisor.com and actually other sites as well, we decided to cast our lot with this great place to stay in Key West. It is located right off of Duval Street on Truman. It was so convenient. We walked every where that we wanted to go. There is a Denney’s right across the street, a Subway and a Papa John’s Pizza, as well as a CVS drugstore in a strip mall directly next door. Also, it is only about a 3-4 block walk to Camille’s, or Blue Heaven restaurants. They are both great places to eat, and we enjoyed our meals very much. If you decide to rent a motorscooter or bike, you can do that right across the street, also.
After planning this trip for several months, our arrival was scheduled on July 10th, which was right after Dennis had come through. We had been in Fort Lauderdale since the 8th, and called on Sunday to see if we could change our dates by one day. Carlos said that he would change our arrival date, and that we could actually check into the hotel any time that we got there, which was very good news to hear.
Carlos, Jim and the rest of the staff pampered us and all the rest of the guests for our complete stay. Nothing we asked was to big a task for them to handle.
A continental breakfast was served every morning from 8 to 10:30 AM and contained many pastries, cereal, bagels and the like as well as coffee and juice. In fact, the menu changed a little each day, which made it interesting wondering what we would have each morning. Also, a happy hour was there for anyone that wanted it every evening from 5 to 7 PM. Snacks of all kinds, and wine or beer was available. And as far as I could tell, they didn’t care if you came back for the 2nd and 3rd beers or glasses or wine either.
The rooms were excellent. We had a deluxe king bedroom and it was immaculate. Even furnished bathrobes. In fact, my wife liked the robes so much, she wound up buying two of them.
The grounds were excellent. A beautiful fish pond was on the property containing many great looking fish. There was a nice small swimming pool, as well as a hot tub. And we were able to leave our car parked most of the time we were there, with the furnished parking lot.
If you can find or if you know of a better place to spend your time and get as much for your money while in Key West, I would like to know about it. We don’t know when we might be going back to Key West, but when and if we do, The Almond Tree Inn is where we will be staying.
I tried to download pictures with this review, but kept getting an error message when I hit send, so I can't help you there. Hope this review helps someone else make up their mind, because I know what I went through, trying to decide on a place to stay without ever visiting Key West. We think and know that we made a great choice.
