“Excellent Staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

The location is great. Comfortable walking distance to Duval, yet far enough away to be nice and quiet. Though the pool is small is serves its purpose perfectly, and is very well maintained. The pool side breakfast is nothing fancy, but it was more than sufficient with cereal, bagels, pastries, yogurt, juice and coffee.
The staff here is the best part! They were quick to politely answer questions about the area, and offer assistance in any way.

At first i thought this hotel was too expensive when a co-worker told me about it but he said it was fantastic. It was just that. A block or two from Duval street, close enough to walk but just far enough away that the noise didnt bother us. The pool is beautiful with water jets and changing colors. The staff was great and take care of your every need. The breakfast is really good, nothing to exciting but good muffins and croissants ect.. The room was spotless and, for lack of a better word, cool. Modern furniture, flat screen tv's, hard wood floors. We stayed in room 402 which is an upstairs-downstairs townhouse kind of room. There was another family staying next to us and we didnt hear a peep from them. The Duffy restaurant is right across the street and it was great also. There is a bike rental shop just up the street with good prices. Cant think of anything bad to say about the Truman Hotel! Pricey yes but you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: room 402 is great if you have kids with you. master bed is upstairs and the kid stayed on the fold o...

This hotel is more like a guest house with a good location close to many places at walking distance and with parking facilities.Rooms are small and basic and air conditioner too noisy . Pool area not so pleasant as breakfast too basic. Considering more than 400 dollars for 1 day I would look somewhere else next time.

Sorry we failed to meet your expectations. We are centrally located and our complimentary breakfast is small - because there are so many great restaurants all around us. It is a simple offering to maybe start your day - we don't profess to provide a hot breakfast and we do not have a restaurant on property. We try to keep our guests as happy as possible and we apologize for not making this guest happy. Thank you for posting.

We went on a family vacation (we're all adults), and our parents surprised us with a three-night trip to Key West. We stayed in two rooms at the Truman and absolutely loved it! The rooms are adorable, and the setting is heavenly. It's very easy to walk pretty much anywhere - I walked to Higgs Beach and we walked up to Mallory Square for the sunset twice. The continental breakfast is continental, but definitely sufficient.

My only small gripe is that smoking is allowed on the pool deck and outside the rooms. It only really bothered me on the pool deck during breakfast - I definitely prefer to eat without tasting smoke - but if smokers decide to sit at the tables outside your room, the smoke can drift into your room. With the international mix that was there while we were, however, I would be surprised to see it become a totally non-smoking property.

Still, I would definitely stay there again when I return to Key West!

Really enjoyed our two night stay here. Very nice room by the pool. Unique idea of serving continental breakfast by the pool. Server very nice and helpful. Man in office also very helpful. We were having problems with our laptop and he was very helpful.

They get it, and get it right. Great location near Duval. Clean well designed and maintained rooms. The pool is great, a real beauty at night. The customer service was excellent. The continental breakfast hit the spot and even the coffee was superior! Best of all was the parking! I hope they keep up the great work, and as long as they do my family and I will be back!

I would like to thank all the staff you made our stay so memorable..well done.
Our choice of Hotel in Key West could not of been more perfect as we were first timers to Key West and so having a quiet beautiful oasis of calm to wake up to and arrive back at night was fantastic . The pool area is excellent and meant that we could chill out completely before walking the two blocks to Duvall and all the fun that it has to offer.
The breakfast buffet was also a great bonus and again was more than we needed to start the day.
It's a first rate Hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone...
