Douglas House
Ranked #28 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 15, 2013

If you are looking for a Hotel or Inn at Key West you will not do better than the Douglas House. Located in the Upper Duval Street area you find yourself in the quiet setting of ‘Old Key West’. The hotel grounds are tranquil and tastefully landscaped with lush tropical vegetation. The rooms are well appointed, private with comfortable beds. The pool and pool side bar provide an intimate setting without all the noise and activity associated with other venues.

The hotel staff also set the Douglas House apart from other properties in Key West. They are gracious, mature, professional and experienced personnel in the hotel industry. Kris helped us with booking activities and making suggestions of where to go and what to do. He is a long term local of Key West so he is a good source of information.

A few things worth mentioning, if you want to experience the nightlife of Lower Duval Street it is only a few blocks away. Close enough to walk to but not so close that you are a part of the festivities while at the Inn. If you are traveling with pets they do have pet friendly rooms but best to book early. Also hotel policy does not include children as guests.

If you are looking for a tranquil stay in Key West that is centrally located you will not do better than the Douglas House.

When you live in paradise, where to you go to relax? We went to Key West and just loved the Douglas House. Our room was such a huge wonderful surprise. We were expecting small and right on the street. Our room was on the street, but we had a big beautiful porch on sit on and relax and watch the world go by. Our room was huge and so comfortable. With the Douglas House being away from the noise and congestion of Duval, we were able to relax and enjoy our stay. Kris was so helpful in helping us locate restaurants that allowed us to bring our dogs and suggested some great places to try. The 4 of us have been to Key West many times, so we were not looking for the typical Key West experience, we wanted a relaxing visit and we did. The only suggestion that I would have is they need to add more items to their kitchens. Glasses and mugs are too limited. Not much of a selection of pots and pans. You have to check the kitchen before you do your shopping. It is a wonderful place to stay and we will be back.

We have recently returned from our latest visit to Key West where we, once again, stayed at The Douglas House on Amelia Street. This was our fourth stay at this guest house and, as always, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean, comfortable and spacious and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The grounds of this property are really attractive too, there are several little areas where one can sit quietly and read and the wifi throughout means that checking emails etc is very easy. The pool is always clean and inviting and there are several sun beds for relaxing.

Chris at the front desk helped us with the rental of an electric 'buggy' and with printing labels for a package we needed to return via UPS. Nothing was too much trouble.

The location of Douglas House is perfect. Just steps from the quieter end of Duval with a wine bar and a rum bar just across the street plus La Te Da restaurant just steps away too.

We will be back in Key West and at The Douglas House!

We have never felt so comfortable. Room L7 blew us away. Well worth the money. All the staff including the owner were really nice at all times. We booked a week there and ever day was a blessing. We never stay in the same place when we go aboard but we are already making plans on staying for longer next year. Coming from someone who is really critical and likes a fuss that is saying something. Thank you Douglas Inn for making our stay pleasurably. Kriss and J

Room Tip: L7 you will feel like a king and queen. Great balcony

I recently stayed at the Douglas House for my vacation in Key West! Great spot, right off Duval Street. Very clean, and staff was very courteous! Arrived late due to flight delays and The Douglas House assisted in making sure we got checked into our room okay! Overall a great stay, and would definitely recommend it!! 5 STARS!

We arrived in Key West with no accommodations. Stopped at the Information center just outside of Key West and the lady assisting us recommended this B&B as one of her favorite. We booked the Triangle Suite #12 based on her recommendation. We arrived at the Douglas House very pleased with it's location and accommodations. The B&B offers spacious rooms, pool and free coffee and tea all day. B&B is located just off the Duval Street. Shopping, restaurants, bars, beaches all with-in easy walking distance. Would stay her again if in the area.
