Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Been going here for 14 years. Outstanding staff - especially helpful front desk/concierge service, and housekeeping, breakfast and bartenders - all terrific. Always super clean, comfortable beds, good vibe, nice poolside. Not too big. Location is excellent in old town - quiet but walkable to water, Duval st etc. nice solid breakfast, always something hot like a strata or omelet, French toast etc.

Property's Favourite Review
I LOVED my stay here, it was our first time at key west and we werent sure what to expect or what really to do. To start, the location is perfect. Its walking distance to everything we wanted to do (or a very quick ride share if we were feeling lazy). We ended up doing a few excursions and late night outs - the hotel was extremely accomodating in providing anything we may have needed. Not only that but the hotel itelf was so lovely. They have quite possibly the best breakfast ive had at a hotel, the pool and hot tub was great after nights out, and a fun sundeck for some extra rays. They also had a happy hour everyday which i highly recommend. My fiance and I are very shy and everyone here, from staff to guests, were so friendly and nice - its hard to not feel extremely relaxed. There was one rainy day and even with that the room felt like a home away from home. The room was spacious enough for what we needed on a rainy day in and there were even umbrellas in the room for our use. Yes key west was a good time, but this hotel and the staff were the cherry to the trip. I would absolutely come here again and recommend anyone to come.

We had an amazing stay at this open-minded and friendly guesthouse in Key West. The staff and managers all make a tremendous effort to make every guest feel special. We enjoyed our time with fellow guests, and the place is good for couples as well as individual travelers. The rooms are delicate, the breakfast amazing and nothing can beat the hospitality. We are not in doubt where to stay on our next visit to Key West.

Always a lovely time at Alexander's. We've been regulars for over 20 years. The staff is the best, the crowd is friendly, breakfast is warm and inviting, and the rooms are comfy. It is clearly the best inn of its type on the island. You won't go wrong with it.

Fabulous as always! Wonderful breakfasts, scrupulously clean, comfortable, well appointed room, and a caring and attentive staff! A longer walk from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street, but that makes it quieter and it’s easy to rent bikes from Alexander’s and bike around. We will be back!! Thank you for everything!

We've stayed at Alexander's probably 25-30 times in the last 10 years, but I think this was the first time we've stayed in December. We usually stay in room #10, but this time treated ourselves to #16. Needless to say not only was the Guest House decorated for Old St. Nick, but the entire town was as well. All the staff members had that extra Christmas spirit on top of their natural charm and attentiveness. How much charm and how attentive...let me tell you...We got there on a Tuesday around 11:30, just missing the breakfast which stopped at 11:00am., and were staying until Saturday. There are usually some nice muffins and breads left over from breakfast that they will leave out for the guest to finish off throughout the day. I know from experience that every Sunday morning they serve made to order omelets of your choice. I said to Paula, the lady who usually runs the breakfast, that the only thing I was sorry about was that we wouldn't be there for her omelets on Sunday. She immediately said, without any hesitation, "would you like for me to make you an omelet now. It's no problem." I immediately said yes and a couple of minutes later had a delicious ham and cheese homemade omelet most courteously made by Paula. Do you think you'd get that kind of thoughtfulness from any other guest house? Of course not. It's the treatment like this for their guest that will always make Alexander's Guest House the finest guest house on the island of Key West. Hat's off to every single worker at Alexanders, but you know it always starts at the top. That would be Raul and Orlando, the owners and Laura the longtime General Manager. Great job on setting the highest standards in all of the Conch Republic. - Tom and Michael

Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. The room was lovely. Breakfast was great - a littlest e different every morning. Fruit, muffins, meats and cheeses, and something hot. Happy Hour in the late afternoon. Nice to meet other guests. It was our first time in Key West and Tim and Robin were very helpful with suggestions and reservations for dinner. We walked everywhere except one restaurant that was a bit far in dress clothes. A number of the other guests with whom we spoke have been coming for years - a testament to the wonderful sense of welcome and care we found the moment we pulled up. Property is well-taken care of. Staff always tidying, cleaning, etc. Loved our stay and would have loved to stay another day.
