“My Happy Place”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

What a welcoming place; what a welcoming staff! Alexander's is just like home for me. The breakfast on the pool deck is just the place to start another great day. I also like to meet up with new friends and talk about yesterday's sights and restaurants. The highlight of my day is always Happy Hour when I can meet new friends. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Thanks to the whole staff.

Room Tip: Rooms above the lobby are very quiet. Rooms fronting on the pool offer a beautiful view.

It was our first trip to Key West and we are so happy we stayed at Alexander's. The room was great! Alexanders provided privacy and at the same time provided a daily happy hour to chat with fellow guests! We loved this! Breakfast at the pool every morning was a relaxing way to start the day. Staff was so nice, accommodating, and welcoming! We will be recommending Alexanders to friends and we will for sure be going back!

Room Tip: You really can't go wrong with a room here. They provide a wonderful balance of privacy and comm...

What a great place! We stayed at Alexanders at the recommendation of our friends who had been there before. We will definately return. From before our arrival the staff were accomodating in arranging for a kayaking/snorkeling tour, and offered to help with any other prior arrangements.
When you return from a day out and the staff ask how your day was and what you did, it certainly makes you feel like part of their family.
Happy hour with Charlie is wonderful. He, along with everyone on staff, made it a wonderful first visit. We will certainly return on our next Key West visit. The location is convenient to everything on the main street and within walking distance to the great restaurants and shopping.
The rooms are lovely, well kept, and the pool and sunbathing decks are great.
Can't wait to return.

In a word - Alexander's is amazing! 5 stars does not even do it justice. The staff goes above and beyond to make your stay absolutely perfect. The pool and jacuzzi feel so nice and secluded with all the beautiful landscaping, and staying somewhere where you can actually use the pool 24 hours is fantastic! I can honestly say thanks to Alexander's I had the most relaxing vacation of my life. We are already planning our next trip to this fabulous B&B. It is a true gem in the keys and I will never stay anywhere else when I come to the keys! Thank you so much to the staff for making our trip perfect in every way!

It was a delight to walk through the door of Alexander's Guesthouse again to the very warm and attentive welcome from Jeff (as well as from other staff who recognised us from last time). He soon reminded us about everything we needed to know - that we hadn't really forgotten from our previous stay! All the great reasons came flooding back as to why we stayed here last time; the unique individual rooms, crisp white linen, superb breakfast spread (enjoyed al fresco on the deck) and the daily happy hour and relaxed atmosphere with other guests of all ages. The service is just top notch - we wouldn't choose anywhere else when staying in Key West!

Room Tip: They are all so unique, you won't be disappointed! The only problem is loosing the room you real...

Spent 4 days at Alexanders. The staff is attentive and friendly and will respond before you know it your requests. The house is comfortable, private and makes you feel like your in an oasis. The pool, hot tub are great places to hang out for a quiet relaxing time and then of course their happy hour sets the tone for the evening. This place really does take you away. Even the rooms are all unique and very comfortable. A definite place to go back to.

Wait! This isn't going to be another of those straight couples raving about what a fabulous place Alexander's Guesthouse is is it? Yes! Yes, I'm very happy to say that it is!  We left today after a too short stay, met some really great guests, enjoyed the (extended) happy hours immensely, spent way too long lingering over breakfast conversing with our newfound friends and benefited from the recommendations of restaurants (Cafe Sole, Latitudes at Sunset Key, Santiago Bodega and Better Than Sex among the best) and other activities throughout our brief stay.  We stayed in Room 16 which is a really great and private suite with a private patio and Florida room but next time we won't require such a sanctuary. Jeff and Aggie are fabulous hosts (hostesses) and welcome all with open arms. Mike is a great substitute bartender as he held up through a very extended happy "hour" ( actually four hours) on our last night. And then there's Charlie! A better friend and dispenser of advice and well wishes I have never seen at a lodging facility. I guess the best compliment I heard while there came from at least two from different couples who both stated that once you've been to Alexander's Guesthouse why would you ever want to stay anywhere else while in Key West? My wife and I whole heatedly agree!
