Reception was courteous and helpful. We had to switch rooms which was discussed at the booking. The rooms were decent with average furnishings, I don't recall any back aches from the beds. We stayed in the house across the street from reception. The first room was located on the corner of the house which afforded a better layout and nicer spot on the veranda. Both rooms where upstairs which lent to a breezy and foot stomping free good time. The second room was just OK. Our first room was just getting by with the decor and appliances, the other was not. Carpet was frayed and coming up from the sub floor and the typical "problems" I don't care to get into. Both rooms did have a full kitchen which we did not use. Breakfast is served in the pool/garden which was nice and quite. It consisted of the standard cold breakfast with coffee/tea and fruit. But was enough fuel until lunch. Parking looked a bit sketchy, it's a small lot 2 min walking distance to reception. We had a rental car, never had any problems but didn't leave anything in the car. We stayed here to get away from the corporate giants and would stay again despite the need for a rehab. Location wasn't bad.

Near the quieter end of Duval St., the Douglas house is a great spot to say on Key West. The price has always been reasonable, we've been back 2x. Almost everything on the island is in walking distance from this place, which is great if you are going to be enjoying the nightlife. Rooms are large and nice - with some recent renovations. Recommended for sure.

Douglas house is a very lovely, nicely kept place. We had a wonderwul time. Rates are reasonable and it is perfectly located. Pool an garden area invite to relax. It's located right off Duval St ,near the beach which is quiet bad. The off-street free parking was really nice to have. All the staff I met were very friendly and helpful.

Place was recommended by chamber of commerce Key West at HW 41. Thank You! Certainly we will come back. Froemter family, Kiel, Germany

The place was very clean, quiet, and relaxing. The staff was extremely helpful got us signed up with a ghost tour and wave runner trip around the island. Really enjoyed the pool and the coffee which was fresh everytime I went for a cup (all day long). The suite (#9) was great with lots of room and it was very comfortable. The location was within walking distance of all the fun stuff and shopping on Duvall Street, yet far enough away from the louder areas that it was quiet. The Douglas House will be the first place I check on for my next trip to Key West, if there isn't a room then I would consider changing dates to when there is ... it was just that nice!

Room Tip: Had a nice covered porch over looking pool and garden area.

We had our Mimi-Honeymoon here and loved it;. Very clean, close to Duval but not the busy section. Appeared to recently remodeled with nice kitchen, bath and living room. It was perfect. Only complaint was the bed (and no not because it was a honeymoon). Just sitting on it made it creek and crack. Not sure why, but the linens, decorations and overall suite was fantastic.

Room Tip: They have free parking and if you know Key West that is HUGE
