“Just left Key West (10 minutws ago) and couldnt wait to write my review!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

First... LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! This place is 2 blocks away from Duval and 2 blocks away from water and Mallory Square. The location is the best part of this hotel! My husband and I were able to come and go whenever we needed as it was so conveniently located near everything! While out walking and touring during the day we didnt need to worry about bringing sweaters or change of clothes as we were only 3 minutes walking distance no matter where we went. The location was perfect! We were in room 1 and had our own porch with chairs and foot stool and it was nice in the a.m. to sit out there with coffee and at night to sit with drinks and watch the people walking around.

Second - the charm of this hotel was very nice. It was not a resort and its not a $1000 per night room. For the price we paid we got well worth it. The original wood floors and original structures and walls and painted and repainted walls were gorgeous. My husband is a painter and he was not bothered by the painted walls and decor as he is very picky and specific about that kind of work. Ti y details were chipped paint here or there or creaky wooden floor boards but it adds so much charm and character and its nice to stay in a place with so much history. Our room was very clean when we arrived and was cleaned during the day when we left with not so much as a single thread of our belongings tampered with. If you are looking for character, charm, relaxing environment, clean beds this is your place!

Barely a gripe - 1) Our room was facing closest to duval so noise of motorcycles and go go carts were there but barely bothered us. We kept the a.c. on while we were there so we didnt hear much. Occasionally we would hear footsteps above us but again not so much to be a bother to us. Besides..... im sure we made plenty of noise of our own and we didnt get any dirty looks ;)
2) The sink faucet in our bathroom was very light so if you are an avid face washer I would tell u to get a different room. However the extremely deep and big bathtub paid for it and I enjoyed two soaks while there and even fell asleep in the bath one night! Other than the faucet the bathroom was gorgeous and very clean and nicely restocked wuth towels each day.

Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was staple stuff like cereals and bagels and toast and fruits and coffee and juices but the coffee qas better than the Starbucks on Duval so that says something....

Overall I would definately recommend this place to anyone! When we return to Key West we will definately return to Cypress House. We loved the high ceilings and hanging chandelier in our room, flat screen tv, beautiful decor... qe had a great time! I asked my husband of he had anything to add and he says no.. great times!!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean and modern but had te key west feel still. It's just a few blocks from all the stores and bars. Only 2 complaints. 1) We paid extra for a room with a porch and while we had porch access it wasn't private. 2) You could hear every noise from outside all night long. If you're a light sleeper you probably want to request a room that's not facing the street.
All things considered a nice stay. We would stay there again.

We recently stayed here when we were attending a wedding in Key West. The room was very clean and comfortable. It is the perfect location for everything you want to do. Just off Duval Street, but away from the crowds.
Happy Hour and breakfast was served by Eli. He is a great host. He really added to our enjoyment of our stay. Always a smile, always accommodating.
We would definitely return.

We stayed at the Cypress House for 4 nights in November. We had a queen room, number 11, and our friends had room 15. Our room was on the first floor, had a porch with 2 chairs and a table, high ceilings, nice décor, large refrigerator, flat screen TV, comfortable bed, and a huge bathroom with a nice walk in shower. A hair dryer, soap, and shampoo were, also, provided. The street noise, noise from rooms above, and the stairs going to the second level would bothersome to many because it can be loud, however, did not bother us. Our friend's room was on the second floor and had a smaller refrigerator and a pedestal sink but similar in size and décor, although, I did prefer our room.

The breakfast was decent, although, I would have preferred some fresh cut fruit instead of just a few apples and oranges in a dish and some flavored bagels or english muffins. The daily 5 to 6 happy hour was very good and included a complimentary specialty drink and appetizer(s) - margaritas, rum punch, sangria, chips/guacamole/salsa, cheese/crackers, baked brie, conch fritters, etc. There is a beautiful covered and non-covered area with tables and chairs to use for breakfast, happy hour, or relaxing.

The pool is very nice, heated, and refreshing. A couple rafts and noodles are available, as well, as pool/beach towels.

The location is outstanding . . . close to everything. Parking is a bit of a challenge, however, we managed to find a free spot everyday after spending the day at the beach and then walked everywhere at night.

We found the price about $50 per night high; however, we would consider staying here again and would recommend the Cypress House to others.

We were fortunate enough to come upon a last minute availability at the Cypress House during our recent trip to Key West. The room, which was the former office, had just been converted to a new room. It was tastefully decorated and included access to the front porch. The location was phenomenal to Duval Street, Mallory Square, Seaport Boardwalk and Simonton Beach area, all within walking distance. It is a bit noisy with all of the street traffic as we faced directly on Caroline. The pool and patio area is well maintained and a breakfast and social hour with appetizers is provided every day. The staff will do whatever they can to assist you with your needs. Special thanks to Richard and Dennis who made our stay magical! Looking forward to our stay next year!

I spent 5 nights there in July. The entire staff was very pleasant and helpful including sending several personal faxes for me. The room was very clean and spacious. It also had a nice second floor patio deck but it rained 3 of the days I was there so I didn't use it. The breakfast in the morning was more than the usual continental breakfasts offered by others and early evenings had light snacks to get you to your evening meal. Great location one block from Duval St. All in all a very nice experience and would definitely stay there again.

The hotel was easy to find on Caroline street in the old town of Key West. This is very convenient to Duval, Mallory Square, and other shopping and restaurants. We were met with friendly staff who gave us coupons and a flyer to “Fantasy Fest”. The staff accommodated our request to park our motorcycles close to our room. There was a nice pool in the “courtyard” along with a cabana. We arrived early and our room was ready in 15 minutes of our arrival. Our room was very nice with wooden floors, a king bed, and a modern bathroom with a huge walk in shower. We had a flat screen TV. Later during the evening, we discovered we did not have the access code to the WiFi and the front Office was closed at 9:00 p.m. Be sure to ask the clerk for the internet passcode at check-in. There were no vending machines on the premises. There was an ice machine located by the pool area. We did not have the appetizers in the cabana at 5:00 pm but instead headed for the shops. The hotel clerk mentioned “Upper Crust” as a good place to find thin crust pizza. We ate there and it was delicious! Although the bed was comfortable, we did not sleep well during our 1 night stay. The people upstairs were walking the floor all night. The window air conditioner was not efficient to cool rooms with high ceilings. This is a nice place, but for $200, we’ll stay somewhere else the next time.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 12 which allowed us to park our motorcycles closeby.
