Positive Reviews

Convenient location close to the beach and harbour

Satisfied visitors agree that this guest house enjoys a prime location within central Key West. Guests say they liked the fact that both the bustling harbour area and the relaxing beach at Fort Zachary Taylor are just a short walk away. They also report that there are plenty of restaurants and amenities nearby.

Tasty breakfast served by the swimming pool

Guests mention that a fantastic continental breakfast buffet consisting of bagels, fresh fruit, cereals, and more is served each morning. They also say that this morning meal is served outside by the swimming pool, which makes for a pleasant alfresco dining experience.

Polite and helpful staff make guests feel at home

The people working at this hotel do a great job of welcoming in new guests and making everyone feel comfortable and welcome, according to pleased patrons. Visitors also say that the staff are courteous and happy to help with any requests, no matter how big or small.

Negative Reviews

Some accommodation here is on the small side

Unhappy travellers report that some of the rooms here a little bit too compact. They also add that the en-suite bathrooms in these smaller rooms lack ample counter space to put toiletries and other items on.

Noise issues

Guests whose rooms face the main road complain that they are disturbed by traffic noise. They recommend travellers book a room on the other side of the property if they wish to enjoy a quiet stay.

Unimpressive pool.

The outdoor pool was said to be very small and some guests who were planning on having a swim were disappointed to find that the pool was only adequate for a refreshing soak.
