“One of the best places I have stayed in”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I can't say anything negative about this place. We booked it after a lot of research including reading trip advisor reviews.

Truman Hotel is in a great location, with free parking, large well decorated rooms and a fabulous pool area (which is also where the included breakfast is served). Our room was on the ground floor by the pool, which I recommend as it was easy to get in and out of with suitcases and it was close to the pool.

Key West is clearly not a very big place, and this hotel is well located for walking up Duvall Street and is very close to the Hemingway House.

We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

We Were very pleasantly surprised at how lovely the hotel is and how helpful and friendly everyone was. I say surprised because I kept telling my friend not to go by the pictures because they were probably very old but it looked exactly like
the pictures!
We had a very nice room on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the pool and a beautiful bathroom.
Nick the Manager was great and helped us in many ways includinging making suggestions about sites to see.
The breakfasr was terrific and had many choices and was served at the pool.
We would absolutely stay at the Truman if we go back to key West.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 214 which was perfect and gave us privacy.

I loved everything about this hotel!! 'The rooms are gorgeous and the beds are the best ever.
There fans above the bed which is very nice so can choose to put on the aircon. or the fan.

Outside the room there's a terrace and in the middle of the building there's a swimmingpool. At the end of the afternoon guests would gather there and have drinks together. it's a great hotel for people in their middst 20 or 30.

you walk right in the middle of everything that Key west has to offer.....

The hotel was not very cheap, but I thought it was worth it.

Room looks exactly as it appears, nicely decorated and very clean.Bathroom was newly redecorated and was beautiful. Beds were comfortable and we appreciated the luxury linen and many pillows. We liked having a refrigerator in our rooms so we could eat whenever we wanted. We were pleasantly surprised when housekeeping knocked on our door in the evening withe bottled water and chocolates!! Had a great time looking at all the action on Duval as we walked to Mallory Square.The location is great as it was quiet and loved having a parking space for the car. Nick, the day manager and night manager( he works all the time) was the nicest person and helped us with whatever we needed throughout our stay. The continental breakfast was perfect and it was nice to eat near the pool or on our private balcony.I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Second floor is perfect as you have privacy ( with private balcony). We stayed in Room 214/ Only thi...

This hotel has a great location and is decorated nice. We didn't get into our room until past 3:00. BuT we were able to stay in pool. The rooms are small, and If your on the bottom floor its noisy with the maids in the morning. The clerks in the office are kind, EXCEPT for the night man. He is older and has a very NASTY attitude......the other help, including the maintenance workers were very helpful and kind.
