The perfect place to stay?

The last time we stayed in KW we stayed at the Heron House and that was 2 years ago. We liked the place a lot but for the money (325 a night) The bathroom was small with some mold in the caulking, wall paper coming off the wall and a Holiday Inn feel to the furniture. The reason they gave me for the wall paper is the mold from the area eats the glue.

We just spent a weekend on the Oregon coast and spent 500 a night for a beautiful room and no mold. Thank God.

Is there a place in KW that you can stay for 4 nights in April which we are planning, that has superior bedding and clean big bathrooms and finally a contemporary feel to the furniture. Breakfast included and a pool would be really perfect. Does the place exist in KW?

We are partial to Marrero's Guest Mansion. Nice pool(clothing optional), has a nice Continental breakfast, a happy hour in the afternoon, and has VERY nice rooms. Room 16 is our favorite, and yes, it has a big bathroom. Only 1/2 block off of Duval.........we think it is the perfect place to stay in Key West...........

I second Shaz, looking for "superior" The Gardens Hotel. Or Ocean Key.

Check out the Dewey House. Just got back and it was beautiful; big comfy bed, huge bathroom, private enclosed patio on the 2nd floor (room416); nice sized mini fridge; at the quiet end of duval.

Without a doubt - Ocean Key House - right in the thick of things, fantastic rooms and bathrooms and wonderful staff. Well worth the $$$.

I'd support the suggestions for The Gardens Hotel.

Beautiful room, (we had an upper Courtyard Room)excellent bed and linens; scrupulously clean. I'd describe the furnishings as elegant and contemporary with the architecture. Bathroom not huge but superbly appointed and again immaculate.

Breakfast is perfectly adequate, fresh and tasty.

Pool isn't large but excellent, open 24 hours and with a screened hot tub adjacent.

Perfect place if you appreciate a private atmosphere with a slightly exclusive feel but yet comfortable.

Staff is friendly, helpful and efficient.

Finally the location places you two minutes stroll from Duval.
