“Gracious hosts/Excellent, but quiet location.”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We spent a long weekend at the Weatherstation Inn and had a lovely time. James greeted us warmly and gave us a full tour of the property. Some really nice perks: complimentary water, complimentary parking, and coffee/tea/breakfast. There is a small pool and we took our breakfast out there two of the mornings. There is also a rooftop space to watch the sun set--though the easy walk to Mallory square to observe all that craziness is definitely worth it! Everything is an easy walk: Bahama Village (go to Blue Heaven and the conch shack across the street!); Zachary Taylor State Park; Duval Street--the location of this Inn cannot be beat, plus being tucked in the Truman Annex makes it quiet despite being in the heart of everything. Other than driving to the airport to take the sea plane to the Dry Tortugas (you MUST do this), the car didn't move, we were able to walk everywhere, which I love. Besides the location, the inn itself was cozy and charming--I like old spaces and it's been updated, but still has the character. If I must offer a negative--by the third day, I was a little tired of the breakfast basket (not a huge fan of hard-boiled eggs to begin with!), but it's nice to have a little basket sitting there when you wake up so it's really not a major issue. I would definitely recommend this place and would definitely stay here if I come back to Key West.

Our first visit to Key West was a wonderful experience for us. This quaint B&B, located in a gated community, is within walking distance of all the attractions Old Town has to offer. James and Barbara could not have been more accommodating. It was fun reminiscing with James about the time he lived in New York and the neighborhood we shared in common. I would highly recommend the Weatherstation to anyone who wants to enjoy Key West and still have peaceful nights at this gem of a B&B.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Key West that is only minutes away from the action but quiet when you return back to the Inn, you should definitely stay here. The Inn is so comfortable and the staff (both James and Barbara) could not be nicer, more helpful or treat their guests any better. The breakfast which is delivered to your room each morning in a picnic basket is delicious! The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable with wonderful bedding. Since it is located inside the Truman Annex, it also has more privacy than many other Key West Inns. Our recent stay in February was perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

What a charming B&B. Perfect escape from Duval but close enough for a good time. Service could not be better. Every morning a beautiful picnic basket with muffins, fruit, cereal bars and even hard boiled eggs awaited us outside of our door. Simply amazing.

Room Tip: Anything on the second floor...wooden floors can creak.

Took some time to get to the place but James made us more then welcome. He gave us - for the amount of time that we were to stay - the best way to appreciate Key West. With his instructions, we had two nice days there. The walk along the piers at sunset, supper at the Westin - almost like a french restaurant. The Conch train to view the architecture and history of Key West was worth the money spent, so was the guided tour of the Hemingway Museum. Duetto pizza and Gelato on Greene street was a delicious discovery, the real italian pizza and gelato and an excellent cappuccino . Would have been nice to have breakfast with milk, cereals, and real fresh crispy french croissants instead of the mushy ones. The coffee could also improve. Overall, a very nice place to stay. Expensive like everything in the Key's.

Room Tip: We had the Banana room, very big, King size white bed, white furniture, double shower ! on the main...

The Weatherstation Inn. My wife & I are still boasting about the Inn 4 months after our stay in Key West. First of all having Innkeepers James & Barbara right there for recommendations about restaurants & museums is clutch. Second, this B&B is in such a nice area, away from the traffic of Key West, but only a hop skip & jump to local taverns, the harbors, and Duval street. From the Inn we were able to walk to Harry Truman's Museum, Hemingway's House, and even walked the mile to the Harbor to take a Catamaran for a day of swimming and kayaking. That's a must do on my list. The rooms are unique and I would not hesitate to call James so you can choose a room that's best for you. We liked being upstairs where you've got access to the roof and glorious views. It's convenient putting your own bottle of wine in their fridge for chilling, and the coffee and juice are always there for you. The swimming pool is so easy to get into and we took appetizers and wine poolside. You'll like not having to deal with the corporate rules of a chain hotel. Cool. Casual. Clean. Quiet. Historical.That's the Weatherstation Inn. The way vacations are supposed to be. And ask James for an impression of the famous Cat Man. You won't even have to go to the Pier!

Room Tip: If you don't mind climbing stairs the Upstairs rooms have great views. Nice deck on the upstairs...

Just 8 rooms but all beautifully appointed.
The Truman Museum is a close neighbor and you really feel as though he could be in the next room. Easy walking distance to the throbbing downtown but hidden in a gated community so very peaceful and serene both night and day. Barbara and James are wonderful hosts and really make you feel at home. We hope to return soon and bring friends with us.
