Westwinds Inn
Ranked #46 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Booked our room directly on the Inn's website. This place is a hidden jewel in the middle of key west. Within walking distance to Duval street and Mallory square. Room was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy but certainly everything you want in a non chain hotel. Two pools which were also clean and very relaxing. Breakfast in the mornings was a continental breakfast. Milk juice, coffee cereal, and some homemade Danish. Great way to start a day off in paradise. Next time in Key west we will be staying here.

Went to the Keys to dive. On arrival at the hotel, you feel like your in Key West. You must remember, this is not a chain hotel. My room held a flat screened TV, small closet, full bathroom and a queen sized bed (I don't think it was a king). It was decorated in a southern Florida style and had a small window air conditioner. The air conditioner kept the room comfortable (killing the humidity) but strained to keep the room cool.

Hotel comprised of five buildings, had two pools and included a free continental style breakfast in the morning (good deal). A bike shop was located next door (a house away) where you could rent a beach cruiser to tour key west. The hotel was also in walking distance of Duval Street (1/2 mile) and Mallory Square (3/4 miles). If you didn't want to walk or bike, numerous taxis were always flying down the street. The neighborhood around the hotel was quiet and at no time did I feel unsafe walking (of course, always use common sense).

Downside was parking (everywhere in Key West). To find a spot on the street would be a challenge and seemed like everywhere was metered $$$. The hotel did offer parking at a lot down the street for a small fee and would have come in handy.

I would recommend this hotel for families, couples and anyone traveling solo. However, you must be someone looking for the Key West charm and not a chain or have to be right on Duval.

Room Tip: Bike rental shop was located next door. Front rooms, along street, are illuminated by large lights...

We booked 3 rooms with book.com for 2 days. Enjoyed every moment here and enjoyed the amenities including continental breakfast. Pools available were great. Close to Old Town.

People working at the hotel were helpful, except for small hiccup with room cleaning. That was quickly remedied.

We stayed here for three nights on our no-frills honeymoon, and with off-season prices got a fantastic deal. This hotel is perfectly located a few blocks from the heart of the action on Duval Street and the Marina. The morning breakfast is a clear notch above most hotel breakfasts. Best of all, the grounds -- the pools and landscaping -- are outstanding. Step inside and you'll feel instant relaxation. The only downside is that the rooms are somewhat sparely furnished. If you want plush carpeting and walk-in showers, this isn't your kind of resort ... but we couldn't be happier!

this hotel was very accommodating, they go out of their way to be helpful. the rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable and very cool. i highly recommend it to every one. we did not use the pool facility but they were clean, the breakfast was more than enough. if you want parking then tell them at the desk and you can buy a slot at the covered garage a short walk away.

Just steps away to the noisy and busy Duval St, this little oasis shows up.
Two old houses have been prepared to host different large rooms, having two little but lovely swimming pools in the backyard (in which area the breakfast is served between 8 am and 10 am).
In my opion, prices in Key West are overrated, but considering this I really think Westwinds Inn is a very interesting choice for its price-quality relation, as well as for its friendly staff.

A little pricey but it was worth every penny. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and so accommodating. Love the courtyard which has two pools surrounded by tropical plants and trees - very relaxing just to lounge around the pool. I would definitely come back on my next scheduled Rest and Recreation (R&R).

Room Tip: If vacationing as a family, you won't go wrong with the suites.
