Alexander's was a wonderful place to stay & made the trip even better!!! The staff is great & is always there, available & willing to please to make the trip flawless & enjoyable! If I had to choose, I don't know if I could say the facility was the best or the staff made it best!!! Therefore, I guess I'd have to say it was both!!! Jeff, Agnese, Amiee, Charlie & Laura all went out of their way to recommend restaurants, activity guides/companies to make it a perfect trip! We'll most definitely return! Hercules, the resident cat, was a nice host too! :D

Room Tip: All of the rooms are awesome, but if you want a little privacy, #10 was perfect for that! #5 has ni...

My search for a place to stay in Key West ended when I stumbled upon Alexander's Guesthouse on TripAdvisor.

The place is every bit as special, warm and friendly as other reviewers have made it out to be. At the top of the list is the amazingly friendly, helpful and charming staff. The housekeeping crew (a team of 3) gets the job done in minutes so they are never in your way. The breakfasts are healthy and more than adequate and coffee and iced tea is replenished all day long. The tasteful decor, modern kitchen and pool area help to create a relaxing atmosphere and the free happy hour helps bring the guests together and mingle.

The rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable with an in-room safe, mini-fridge, TV, DVD player, phone, etc. There is a nice DVD collection you can borrow from if you've nothing planned or if it is raining and you want to stay in. The Wi-Fi is free and accessible from anywhere in the property and there is a laptop in the lounge that you can use if you didn't bring along your own Wi-Fi enabled device. Pool towels are always fresh and readily available.

Located near the north end of Flemming Street, Alexander's is a convenient distance (about 6 short blocks) away from the bustle of Duval Street (the main street in Key West) and Mallory Square. Rental bicycles are available at the Guesthouse (if they don't have one, they'll get one for you) and make getting around easier, especially during the heat of the day. Bike racks are everywhere and locks are provided. Key West is very flat and biking is near effortless and you get to see more of the sights at your own pace.

Room Tip: There is a drawing showing the location of the dfferent rooms on the Guesthouse's website as wel...

My partner of 50 years and I spent 4 glorious days at the Alexander House from 9/11 to 9/14/12 for our anniversary...along with 2 friends who celberated their 16th anniversary on the same day as ours.

The staff: Laura, the manager, Agnes, Amy, Jeff, et al, were extremely friendly and courteous. The facility is extremely clean and most comfortable. Agnes was a social butterfly making sure everyone was enjoying themselves and had their needs attended to; Amy was a great happy hour bartender and ensured everyone was socializing and having a great time. Laura, the manager, is most hospitable and does all a in her power to accommodate one's needs...suggesting restaurants, sightseeing tours, etc.
The breakfasts were more than substantial...for example, daily home made muffins, home made quiche, eggs, cereals, fresh fruit, several juices, coffee, tea, expresso...great choices so one would note go hungry!
We have been to the Alexander Guest House 4 times and will always go back there and recommend it. We also very much like that both gays and lesbians stay here and that's a big plus.
The B&B is immaculate and the gardens are well cared for. what we noted is that all of the guests introduced themselves to others and had cailh chats as to how their dahy went. That was very different from stays inn other B&B's.

Room Tip: All rooms are large and comfortable. Choose either a ground level or a second floor room. We had ro...

We have stayed at Alexander's during the past 2,years, it has been truly wonderful. Other previous guests have said many times that the excellent service is far more than one expects of a B&B. The cleanliness, decor, pool, breakfast and happy hour are better than the majority of 5 star hotels.
We shall travel from the UK to Key West at Easter because of Alexander's - we can't wait!
Try it - gay or straight - you won't be disappointed.

We just wrapped up our third visit to Alexander's. Located on a quiet, residential street, Alexander's is an oasis in Old Town. The property consists of multiple buildings insuring privacy for guests, while providing opportunities for making friends over breakfast or during happy hour, on the porches and in the common areas. The house is very well maintained and is surrounded by mature plantings and quaint brick walks. The bike racks, inviting front porch and modern touches blend seamlessly with the home's classic interior. To compliment the cool, clean and comfortable atmosphere, the staff is very friendly, welcoming and above all, they anticipate and accomodate your every need; it's personal. We typically take a late evening flight into Ft. Lauderdale, drive down the Keys and arrive in Key West late into the night. They make sure our key, information and room is waiting; we officially check in the next morning. If we need to leave early, that is taken care of too. Twice, we've stayed during my birthday. Without request, they prepared a special celebratory treat for me, my husband and friends - and this year (again, without notice), they had a bottle of my favorite wine waiting for me when I arrived! The Vera Wang beds with fresh, white linens are heavenly, we love the H2O products, convenience of the beach towels, sunscreen, water cooler, wi-fi, movie library, books, magazines, guides, and delicious breakfast spread - the berry nut bread is divine. Need a bike, want to book a tour or make a dinner reservation? Anything - just ask and it's done - at your convenience. Charles and the staff know how to do things right. While Alexander's describes itself as a premiere LGBT guesthouse, I can assure you it is that and more! All of our friends, gay and straight - singles and couples, will not stay anywhere else. Thanks everyone for another fantastic stay!
