Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed here early last year and enjoyed our stay. Roman was a great manager and really cared about your stay. The room was simple and we slept well every night. You can walk to everything but is far enough away to be away from the bustle. Breakfast is simple, just breads etc so a quick morning snack. They have bikes there to rent and they are very accommodating. We will stay her again.

Room Tip: Boom well ahead of time

We really enjoyed our stay here, and Roman (as the hundreds of reviews before me have mentioned) really is there to make your stay perfect. Our room was great, perfect for a romantic Key West getaway. If you're looking for a giant flat screen and room service than Key West is probably not the right vacation spot. Instead you have a cute room with window air-conditioner, bathroom, and little TV which I would recommend leaving off for the weekend since there is so much to do in Key West. Ask Roman, he'll be happy to act as your concierge.

I would definitely go back here. It was expensive, but compared to the competition was one of the cheaper options. That's what you get for going during "season".

Heron house is the perfect stay in key west, far away enough from the hot spot too sleep well, but near enough to go there by foot. the stuff is extremly friendly, helps on reservation, e.g. to get a bike to discover the island (a must do!)
i will definitly stay there again on my next trip!

Overall hotel is very clean and well kept , host Roman is truly a customer service oriented rep for hotel. Parking will be your biggest frustration you drive around for hrs looking for a spot. Out of all the Bed and Breakfast I have stayed @ in KW this hotel was one of the smallest and oldest. I would not recommend more than 2 people per room its that small. TV is small analogue no flat screen. Abathroom wall paper around shower area was peeling off bathroom had linolium floor. Quite a walk to Duval street , hotel close to cemetary which makes it harder top find on map. Definately rent a bike, moped to get around and good luck with parking in this area.

Room Tip: no room service available , breakfast is danishes orange juice , milk or tea with toast and jelly, n...

I loved staying at the Heron House Court. There is no question, Roman and his attention to guests makes this stay simply divine. The grounds are quiet and lovely, the rooms well appointed and spacious and the pool is always the perfect temperature. The service levels are honestly some of the best I have seen in a long time in the U.S. Well done Heron House Court. I will be back. Simply exquisite. One note, I think some of the rooms need a bit of TLC, nothing a bit of paint and a little sweat wont take care of.

Room Tip: I stayed in 16. The room was huge with the downstairs living and upstairs bedroom and bathroom. Bewa...

Great place to stay. Walking distance to downtown Key West. Clean rooms, pleasant surroundings.Spa was broken when we stayed there but otherwise great place to stay. The pool was nice and there is a bakery right around the corner with fresh rolls and coffee. Delicious!

Spring break weeks aren't the best time to visit Key West if, like us, you're more into the laid back "locals" lifestyle and cool, quirky people and great, life-affirming experiences the island affords. So to find an oasis like the Heron House Court - which doesn't allow spring breakers - is a pure joy. Not that it's not a pure joy otherwise. This is our 8th stay at the Heron House Court. It remains our favorite lodging experience in the entire world. I kid you not. Small, quaint, quiet, secluded, we'll attended and well appointed...you couldn't ask for more. But the heart and soul of HHC - for each of the 8 years we've been there - is Roman, the Court's Concierge. He makes you feel welcome, he handles everything and anything you throw at him from special requests to bike rentals to dinner reservations to theater tickets to simply making you feel so at home. To us, Roman is as much a part of our annual visits as the sun, sea and the sky. Other reviews here are critical of the quaintness and simplicity of the HHC lifestyle. But that's what we love about it. If you want room service and an on-premise gym and only English-speaking fellow guests and to be called "sir" and "Ma'am" or you'd rather have dinner at Margaritaville than Colombian Grace, well, you probably don't want to be staying at HHC. But I also have to ask why you bothered to come to Key West in the first place. At HHC, you can live like a local for a short while - and be accepted as same. You are within walking distance of Paseo (new Caribbean restaurant), the Old Town Bakery, Eaton Bikes, the Key West ferry, Finnegan's wake, the Armory (art center), Five Brothers, the Coffee Plantation, Blossoms, BOs fish wagon, Sarabeth's, Sunbeam Market, HelpYourself...you name it. Also, if you don't know any of these places, then re-read my last comment - why on earth are you in Key West? Roman can hook you up - and he really really cares! During our stay, a group of tourists from Europe ran into some scheduling issues when their travel agent accidentally cancelled their room reservations. Roman not only booked the rooms he could at the HHC, he also arranged for additional rooms at another hotel (during high-season/spring break no less), and PERSONALLY escorted the group not only over to the other hotel, but to a dinner rendezvous he had arranged so they could all meet at a central location before going to their respective hotels. What does he expect after such excitement - and a 14 hour work day? A smile and a thank you. He is a gem and the hub around which the entire HHC world revolves. There is nothing I'd change about the HHC. If you go there and don't like it, may I humbly suggest that there's something wrong with you? Truly...we're going back in August and again next April. And we wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else. It truly is our home away from home and, I say again, the single best lodging experience of my very extensive travel life.

Room Tip: We like the deluxe kings that open onto the patio with the hot tub...big, bright and beautiful...but...
