Stayed here twice and will keep coming back. Beautiful grounds, clean beautiful rooms, great location, you can walk everything. Free breakfast and Happy Hour. Friendly staff.
The owner Corey welcomed us at Happy Hour. Captain Kevin and Captain Roy tend bar and share great sailing stories and gave us tips on the beast things to do and places to go.

We stayed here in early May and fell in love with the hotel! It is cute, clean and in the ideal location for Key West! The pool was ideal to cool off in and the Tikki Bar has a happy hour that provides free drinks for hotel guests! That hour is a very happy one! Breakfast is actually very good and it was a joy to sit in the patio area in the morning to enjoy the start to a new day. I can highly recommend the hotel and the room we had, the Andora for its perfect position!

Room Tip: Choose a room by the pool with its own en suite!

I can't say enough good things about the Duval Inn! We chose this location based on the reviews on trip advisor, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! We came to Key West for the first time to get married, and we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing place to call home for the week. The location is perfect, and the staff is more than accommodating and friendly! Don't think twice!

This was mine and my husbands first visit to Key West and the Duval Inn. And we will be absolutely returning to both in the future. Clean, comfortable and in the middle of it all without feeling like you are. The owner Corey, really made us feel at home. Roy is the go-to-guy for great cocktails (try his rum punch) at Happy Hour and for recommendations of local activities. Our room was cozy and clean. The property is beautifully landscaped and relaxes you the instant you step foot in the pool. The staff is super accommodating and helpful. They held onto our luggage for us for 7 hours after check out while waiting for our flight out, let us hang by the pool and enjoy one last Happy Hour. All in all it was one of the best experiences we've had on vacation. We highly recommend a stay at The Duval Inn for a first visit and every return visit. 5 Stars!

There's numerous lodging choices in Key West. One key consideration should definitely be location, and the Duval Inn definitely has a prime spot. Located right off of Duval Street (the main drag in town), it provides easy access to all the prime shopping, restaurants and activities in Key West within walking distance so that you'll never need to move your car (or even have one if flying in).

The entire staff was very friendly, but one member, "Foggy", definitely went above and beyond in making the guests feel at home. He's the main bartender, and there's a happy hour every night from 5-6 (or longer if "Foggy" feels like it) where the drinks are completely free (but definitely give him a solid tip). He makes the drinks strong and provides plenty of stories about the area, sailing and random anecdotes.

When booking, you'll also have the choice of many different rooms. We went for the "Mango" room. The room was a bit tight, but it was clean and comfortable. The housekeeping staff did an excellent job each day on it.

My boyfriend found this online and we decided to stay here for our Key West visit because it was such an amazing price and so close to the hustle and bustle of Duval street. I thought it looked really nice from the pictures, but I wasn't expecting it to be so beautiful and nice and updated when we got there. It was all of those things & more. The girl at the desk/inn keeper, whose name escapes me right now, was extremely nice & helpful in recommending where to eat/visit/go. To get to our bedroom (the Dolphin) you have to pass through the 'courtyard' which is like a secret tropical garden oasis with all varieties and colors of island flowers and spouting water fountains and quaint outdoor seating and a colorfully decorated little tiki bar for happy hour! Our room had a mini fridge, a little flat screen TV, and neat art on the wall from a giant acryllic painting of the Inn itself to some pictures of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall (reminiscent of Key Largo). The bed was VERY comfortable and overall the bedroom was very cozy. The bathroom is only about a 10 foot walk away down the hall and also very nicely updated. The breakfast in the morning is more than enough to energize you for a busy day and it's so nice to enjoy it out in the courtyard. From there, you walk a short 20 foot walk to Duval St where there's so much to do. Overall, the stay was fantastic. It's a quiet, quaint, cozy, tropical little piece of paradise at the Duval Inn. The owners have done an amazing job paying attention to detail and I really can't believe how affordable it was for such a beautiful place to stay in the heart of Key West.

We stayed for two nights at this lovely place. It is really in the centre, steps away from Duval Street and just 10 minute from Mallory square where the famous sunset celebration happening every evening. Rooms are clean and well maintained, shared bathroom is big enough and not overused by others. Pool is a plus and the happy hour in the bar is a nice touch. Kat at reception was extremely helpful and nice but great customer service from the whole staff overall! Hopefully we will have another chance to visit Florida and then that's no question where we will stay!

Room Tip: Seehorse is a cosy and quite room with a good size nice and modern shared bathroom
