Island House is a welcoming community within the Key West community. The staff was very friendly and outgoing, easy to get to know on a first-name basis, especially the servers at the onsite restaurant, but without exception, made you feel at home from checkin to checkout. Rooms are on the small, intimate side but clean, comfortable and attuned to their target audience. Beds are exceptional; we tended to linger in the mornings. Rooms are on the high side, but viewed as a package (room, food and beverage) not out of line. Onsite restaurant (available 24/7) was quite good; you need not leave the premises unless you wish to. Amenities include impressive landscaping, pool, sun deck, large hot tub and workout room which is small and at times crowded, adequate but could be better equipped; quite a few of the guests are "gym rats." Congenial bar with free happy hour, friendly atmosphere, safe and secure. Felt like I fit right in. Parking is sparse, but that holds true most places on the island.
