“Clean, friendly, excellent location”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

For the price and location, this place can't be beat. No, it has no pool or breakfast, and the rooms are tiny, but it has free reliable wifi (a requirement for us as we always mix business with pleasure), and a safe and friendly atmosphere. There is a refreshment area open 24/7 with free coffee and tea and use of the microwave. Rooms include small refrigerators. Hosts have a few parking spots and will help you with finding others. Although we have never been asked to move our car when we check out, this is common courtesy given the parking situation in Key West. On the last day of our trip, we just move our car to one of the public lots on Front Street when we check out (if we can't find a spot on the street).

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with our stay. The location is fabulous, coffee is fresh, and they allow dogs with no deposit. The rooms are small, but clean. It's a great value. The management was nice and helpful.

Key West is very expensive, but Carribean House provided simple, clean lodging for a good price. There were a few parking spots but also had street parking. Convenient and walking distance to most attractions.

I have stayed there on June 2011 and I had really good experience. The room was what we were looking for: good place to sleep and to wash ourselves after all day of walking, sightseeing ,etc.
Room tiny but clean. Excellent location in a walking to all attractions. We enjoyed good self-made coffee on patio.

We stayed for 4 days in April and wish it could have been longer. The owners made us feel as comfortable as family and all of our neighbors were friends before we left. We couldn't have ask for a better place to spend our time while in Key West. The restaurants and general store in the neighborhood was convenient and fun. We loved Blue Heaven. We could walk everywhere we went and yet enjoy our quiet little neighborhood. I strongly recommend this place.

Our stay was for 3 days. Couldn't ask for a better location, 3 blocks from Duval, across the corner from Blue Heaven, an easy bike ride to Old Town and must-see sights. The owners are fantastic, so hospitable. The room was very clean and the property well maintained. Will certainly stay again.

We stayed here for a long weekend several years ago. The owner are very nice, the place was soooo clean and it was an easy walk to everything we wanted to see. We also were able to bring our little dog which was great!
