Through my almost 20 years of traveling i have never been so disapointet in a hotel that was in this pricerange. We stayed for 1 night in yhe beginning of this year and paid around 400(!) dollars. The rooms are horribly decorated. The air con is so loud, there were maybe 10 kids screaming and playing in the pool untill late which made it impossible to hang out. There was also a sort of security door that banged from the ealry morning everytime someone passed through it.
When i pointed this out to the reception they just didnt bother. They were like " oh ok will send someone up later to check the AC" No apology, no nothing.

The hotel is clean. The hotel can probably be ok BUT when your treated in a bad way it doesnt matter. Walking around Key West later that day to find a new hotel we found so many more hotels that were so much nicer och better priced.

We stayed in a newly renovated room, very nice. The room had refrigerator, hair dryer, ironing board, iron, big flatsscreen TV, free wifi and comfortable beds. Pool and pool towels available. Helpful staff. Breakfast served by the pool. Really good location, close to everything.

One of the best boutique hotels we've stayed at in years. Beautifully renovated with vibrant colors and tastefully chosen accent pieces.

Without asking, we were upgraded to a king suite on the third floor, which is very spacious (vaulted ceilings, separate seating area, large balcony). The bathroom is the size of an additional bedroom with a wonderful rain shower.

Complimentary breakfast is quite lovely. It's essentially a continental breakfast with a luxury twist -- fresh-squeezed orange juice, fresh pastries, peeled hard-boiled eggs, plenty of cream cheese/peanut butter/jelly to go with your toast, freshly-brewed coffee.

Free wifi and parking are also very convenient.

The owners and staff go above and beyond the expected to create a great experience for their guests.

This was an absolute gem! It was in a perfect location, nice and quiet but 2 minutes walk from Duval street and the buzz of Key West. We were a family of 4 sharing a room with 2 king beds and it was a great size for a 2 night stay. The rooms were very nicely decorated and you did feel you were staying somewhere that bit more special than your regular family friendly hotel. The garden and pool areas were so nicely kept and it was lovely to spend an hour or so at the pool after exploring the town. Breakfast provided a good selection to start the day and the seats outside each room let you enjoy your meal beside the pool. If we are ever lucky enough to visit Key West again I would definitely stay at the Trueman.

First time to Key West so first time at the Truman. The hotel itself is an amazing 3 level structure around a central treed courtyard and pool which makes it feel very European. The entire staff was there to please. They keep complex very clean and tidy. We had a corner kingsize room on the 2nd floor which I would definitely ask for again. The room was very clean and well accommodated. And no noice from the outside when you closed the door. There is a wonderful continental breakfast which is set out each morning by the pool with a variety of choices such as pain au chocolat, croissants, muffins, bread as well as fruit, warm hard boiled eggs,yogurt, cereal, coffee and tea. Everything you want to do is within walking distance from this boutique hotel. I will totally recommend this hotel to anyone who are planning a stay in Key West.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper levels away from the pool are quieter.

We visit Key West 2-3 times a year and have stayed at the Truman 3 times. We've stayed in the suites as well as a standard room and couldn't be more pleased. The property is well kept, the staff is the best and the location is perfect!. We'll be at the Truman again in two weeks.
