“Lovely Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

My husband has never been to Key West and I have only been on a cruise (which I was there for like 5 hours). We wanted to go back and enjoy the sights without being interrupted by drunk tourists. We searched around for great Bed and Breakfasts and stumbled upon the Grand Guesthouse. We were pleased with the video and pictures on the site and the reviews on TripAdvisor. We decided to book. We stayed in Room #1 which is very small, but it was just right for the two of us and our weekend getaway. When we arrived we were first greeted by the house dog, Bailey, who is as sweet as dogs come. She was friendly and lovely. Then we were greeted by Derek, who looks after the B&B. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about everything Key West. He drew on a map all the highlights we needed to hit! He even gave us a two coupons for free Key Lime Pie! We were given wine and a beer upon our arrival. Very nice! We rented two bike for both days because the Grand is 5 blocks from Duval Street. You can walk it easily, but why not ride a bike? Breakfast was continental style and had a very home like feel. I was very pleased with my visit and stay at the Grand Guesthouse!

My boyfriend and I decided to go to Key West for a weekend at the last minute, and I booked The Grand Guesthouse for two nights. We stayed in Room #4, which has a queen bed and private bath. The room was small, but perfect for the two of us. The room was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The grounds were beautiful, with chairs and tables and a hammock for guests to enjoy. The location was good, within walking distance to Duval Street and all major attractions. The staff was beyond helpful as well...we took some of Derek's recommendations and we were not disappointed. Overall, a wonderful place to stay in Key West. We will be staying there again!

We stayed for five nights. Very nice. The room was small, but we had enough space, and it was very clean, quite, and well air-conditioned. The B&B itself is cute, quiet, and run by very friendly and helpful people. Within walking distance of everything. It was a good deal.

We just stayed this past week at the Grand and we really loved it!! It was clean and very comfortable, the outside garden areas were lovely and very inviting to be in!! Everyone there were extremely nice and always wanting to please, making our few days there the best!! We stayed in room #2 which was small but very clean and comfortable, it even had its own little patio where we had our morning coffee and in the evening shared a bottle of wine to wind down after a long day of exploring the island. The only down side was there is no pool but I'm not sure we would have found the time to be in one anyway! It was an awesome place to be for our first of many visits there!! We will be back!!

My husband and I just got back from our trip to Key West about a week ago now and we stayed at The Grand Guesthouse for a week. We had never been to Key West before but after our stay at The Grand Guesthouse we will definitely be going back! Our room was clean, quaint, and exactly what we were looking for. When we arrived Derek (and Bailey) told us where all of the hot spots on the island were and even gave us coupons for restaurants. He even set us up with a reservation for a really great place for our anniversary dinner and had then serve us our wedding cake. It was fantastic! It's not the closest place to the beach or all of the bars and restaurants but it is a real easy walk (or bike ride). We will definitely be going back to Key West and the only place we will stay will be The Grand Guesthouse!

This B&B is an awesome find. The accommodations are very nice and the staff are wonderful. This was our second time staying here and it was everything we remembered from our first trip. The rooms are very clean and nicely stocked with anything you would need for a very comfortable stay.
The grounds are beautiful with a quaint tropical shaded area in the back where guests can mingle or private spots near your room. The bike rentals on site are very convenient and the staff are quite helpful with tips on things to see.
This will be the only place we stay in Key West.

Room Tip: The down stairs rooms in the back have a bit of traffic at breakfast time. If you like quiet morning...

We stayed here for two nights over the easter weekend. The place is immaculate, heaps of character, well located and we really enjoyed our stay here. It was a little expensive for us (we booked three rooms for two nights, which cost around $1450) but we wanted to stay somewhere with Key West atmosphere. The owners were really helpful and gave us heaps of information and everything about the place is well maintained and looked after. We had a great time at this place and in Key West!
