Alexander's Gay and Lesbian Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We were not prepared for the superlative experience at Alexander's! We both celebrated our birthdays on March 10. Upon arrival,Jeff was simply awesome.We had parked around corner of White St. Jeff & Michael insisted on retrieving luggage for us. Jeff checked with several nearby restaurants for dinner and also printed maps to them. Upon learning we would be gone to ferry for Dry Tortugas before breakfast time,he secured some yogurt & granola for us along with a coffee maker for our room. Jeff also gave us his parking space before he left for the evening. The outdoor heated pool & hot tub were the cleanest ever and open 24/7. Privacy and security were amazing. Each and every guest professional was dedicated to service. The accomodations are unique with flair. We received excellent service from Vagner,Nina,& Laura,also. The total experience was a wonderful value. We are a straight couple in our 60's and we were treated by Alexander's professionals and guests alike as family. We will definitely return when in Key West.

Room Tip: Rooms #1 & #2(which we enjoyed) may be the best value in Key West.

To say Alexander's Guesthouse fufilled our expectations would be an understatement. From our very first phone call inquiring about a possible stay there to checking out at the end of our stay it was a wonderful experience. Every employee made us feel welcome and couldn't do enough for us.
The Guesthouse itself was lovely, comfortable and well maintained inside and out. We really liked the privacy that it provided in what can be hectic town. The fresh baked muffins each morning where delectible and the cooked to order eggs were a pleasant suprise.
Alexander's Guesthouse should be at the top of anyones list who plans on visiting Key West, we know we will from now on.

Room Tip: We liked the privacy provided by rooms 8 and 9.

Alexander's gives you the best of both worlds: a quiet, luxurious retreat next door to America's party playground. The rooms are quiet and beautifully appointed. A 15 minute walk takes you to the gay bars on Duvall Street. The seaport and most water activities are 10 minutes away; a 20 minute walk takes you to Mallory Square and the word's most famous sunset. Because it is both gay and lesbian, Alexander's provides an open atmosphere but one that is not sexually charged. For men seeking a more "playful" social atmosphere, walk across the street to Island House and use the pool and gym for the small price of a day pass. Alexander's is the best bay B&B that I've ever encountered.

I can't say enough good things about Alexander's Guesthouse! From the savvy, welcoming and knowledgeable staff, to the wonderful accommodations, the experience was sublime! Attentive staff, wonderful setting, great breakfasts, great location, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to get there when you want. This was my second visit to Alexander's and both times were thoroughly enjoyable. Alexander's is the only place I will stay while in Key West.

The property is off the hustle and bustle path of busy Duvall Street but close enough to be in the thick of everything you want or need. The staff is outgoing and friendly and is there to make sure that you feel at home. They make sure that you can navigate the entire town and find all the great places to see and experience. The property is beautiful and intimate. The rooms are lovely and even better in person that seen virtually. The rooms were well kept and cleaned daily. I highly suggest that you visit Key West and you stay at Alexander's!

Room Tip: Stay on the back side of the building away from the street for a bit more quiet.

Alexander's is a wonderful choice to stay and will be the only place we stay when we visit Key West, The facts are as follows: warm greeting by Jeff upon arrival, tour of b/b, our room with music playing , fan and air conditioner on , mints on bed, Jeff brought luggage to our room. Our room was clean and lovely. Breakfast was great, fresh fruit , fresh baked muffins, cereal ,eggs ,etc. The atmosphere was relaxing, fun, whatever you want it to be. This review is not really doing it justice, the place is fabulous, which includes the ENTIRE staff, accommodations , just everything about it ! Thank you to all of Alexander's staff for your hard work and realizing the details make a difference.! We will visit again and again !

My husband and I stayed at Alexander's for four nights in room 13, which was perfect for us. We enjoyed having the privacy of being in the corner of the courtyard. As many others have posted, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.

We will definitely return to Alexander's next year.

Room Tip: Room 13 is well located for people who like more privacy.
