“Wonderful place to stay on a wonderful trip!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

My husband and I recently stayed at Simonton with a group from our Yacht Club. It was the perfect place to stay and gather since there were lots of chairs and table by the pool where we could all meet up.
The property is gorgeous with tropical foliage and beautiful flowers. The mail pool was well maintained and a perfect escape from the busy town. We stayed in the Mimosa room. It was very cute, well maintained, with a larger bathroom and a nice little balcony facing the pool. It was perfect for our short stay. The only downside, was the thrud floor location and all of the stairs.
Breakfast was served at 8:30 each morning and everything was wonderful. The staff was friendly and would bring bagels to your table and clear everything once you were finished. The staff was also very helpful in helping to plan outings and make reservatons. They sell discount trolly tickets and make wonderful recommendations. I cant wait to come back and stay again. The rooms are so unique, I cant decide which one to stay in next! And the friendly cats on site were also a nice addition.

We spent 3 nights at Simonton Court the first week of February. The place was gorgeous and the staff was exceptional. The continental breakfast is really so much more (french toast, fresh grapefruit) plus the staff brings it to your table. The location can't be beat. We walked to all the main attractions and the restaurants we chose. In addtion, Simonton Street is quiet. We will definitlely return!!

Room Tip: Allof the rooms we saw were wonderful. It depends on your budget. We called the desk and the young...

We stayed 4 nights in The Gardenia cottage.It was spacious, clean and located right by the big pool & breakfast area. The location is just 1 blog off Duval Street, so heading over there was quick and simple. Highly recommend. The morning coffee was especially tasty!

My husband and I booked a very last minute key west trip. I was having a hard time finding any availability for our Saturday night stay (we stayed 3 nights). But then found Simonton Court and it was perfect for us. Easy online reservations too! We stayed in a cottage - C6B near the main pool. The building had another cottage attached but we never heard a thing. The grounds were lovely and quite the entire stay. The main pool was large with lots of lounge area. Breakfast was decent. The front desk staff was wonderful. They got bikes ordered for us and provided great biking and lunch suggestions. We have been to KY many time but it was great to hear from a local and do something different. We biked out to Stock Island and it was such a fun trip! They also made great dinner recommendations. Cafe Sole was wonderful! The Inn has a great location - close to Duval and the Seaport! But still very quite and peaceful! We would not hesitate to stay here again! Until next time...

We have just returned from a mid January trip to Key West and loved our stay at the Simonton Court--wonderful location, staff and Key West style cottages amid tropical gardens. Breakfast was served around the largest heated outdoor pool (there are several) and a wonderful way to start the day. The cottages started life as cigar workers houses many years ago and have been remodeled and updated to suit the most discerning 21century traveler. A wonderful and warm January break and we will return. Andy S.

It has been a few years since we visited Simonton court, however, we keep saying we are going back...we loved the way this treasure is hidden away and the privacy of the pools/spa's and cottage !! Very romantic, expecially since no children allowed !! Quick walk to all the Key West fun !!

Booked last minute through key west visitor center (thanks Fi) upon arrival we were greeted by Ben and Paula wow nice people! Ben even offered to help us carry our 2 small bags of luggage, continued to give us a tour of their beautiful gardens and pools. We stayed in the Bird of paradise room, small but had a simple and cozy feel too it, plenty of room for us. This room has a spiral staircase to the rooftop what a neat feature! Location was awesome just steps from duval and all the action, but quiet and no roosters to bother us when we wanted to sleep.
The breakfast was a great bonus and once again the staff were super nice and accommodating. The only thing they could do to make things better would be put a more sophisticated locking system on the door to that room others looked very secure ours did not. We felt safe even still and we had no issues. A definite spot to stay again for us would like to check out more of their interesting non institutional rooms in the future! Thanks again Ben, Paula and all the others I don't have names to list.
