Thank you so much. We agree our location is hard to beat. Close enough to all the action without being too close.
Hope you had a good journey home and that your weather is not too cold yet?

I have always been hesitant about staying in a B&B but was amazed with the Avalon. Located in a great place, at the end of Duval, 2 blocks from the southern-most point of the U.S.
Couldn't hear any of the neighbors in a place known for partiers. That tells you how quiet the rooms are.
Mesh tenting over a 4-post bed, a master bed room type bathroom, a nice television and robes to wear just made the experience great. King bed and great pillows.
The breakfast in the morning was fantasic by any standards.
The desk clerk has been there a long time and she can be very helpful. Catch her when she isn't busy and you can get some pretty good stories from her, also.
I only paid $169 for this room. Great value!

Room Tip: Lot of stairs for the 2nd floor so if that bothers you, try for a ground floor room.

Thank you so much for posting such great photos and sharing your comments. We hope this will not be your last stay in a B & B.

Our Key West Innkeepers association logo is "The Key West Way to Stay" and with over 50 members, most of which are in the old town close to, or like ourselves, on Duval Street we agree B & B's are an excellent choice for a stay in Key West.

We are so happy you chose the Avalon and look forward to seeing you again soon.

We chose this B&B because it was very reasonable priced,the staff where very friendly and helpful,very clean and a nice little courtyard with a small pool,the room was very small with no hanging space one night was enough,bathroom was tiny but free tea and coffee breakfast was very simple but ok,parking was free around the corner,would I stay there again yes but pay extra for a bigger room

Room Tip: Chose the cabin which was a lot bigger

Myself and 3 friends had 2 nights in Key West in September and chose the Avalon Guest House.
We thought it was good value for money and the rooms looked spacious for 4 friends sharing a room.
When we arrived the staff were so friendly (the receptionist is originally from the UK and was so helpful!). We unloaded our luggage and then the guesthouse has complimentary parking just 5 minutes round the corner.
The room was huge and fantastic for 4 girls trying to get ready at the same time!
Avalon is located at the quieter end of Duval Street just across the road from the Southernmost Point. I'd say it's about a 25 minute walk down to the other end but it's a lovely walk and a nice opportunity to look at everything.
Breakfast was included here and is actually very good with lots of options!
We would definitely recommend the Avalon to anyone and I would not hesitate to stay here again if I went back to Key West.
The staff are also fantastic at recommending places to go so don't be afraid to ask them for suggestions!

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor which was huge but I think all the rooms are pretty good in size.

We stayed at the Avalon B&B for one night in August 2013. It was not our first time in Key West, but our first time at the Avalon. The B&B was located at the end of Duval Street, very closed to the Southernmost Point and walking distance to the Hemingway House and Key West Lighthouse. The place was nice, clean and absolutely quiet. The room was very comfortable and the canopy queen bed so lovely even if the bathroom was a bit small. The staff was extremely friendly. They also offer tea, coffee and freshly biscuits (absolutely delicious) in the afternoon. The only complain we have it is the breakfast. It was just ok. I think I would come here again. Highly recommended! Sorry if my English is not perfect but I am not English mother tongue.

We spent 2 nights here in room 24, a superior queen room. The room was very comfortable, but a bit small. The entire building was extremely clean. The staff was really friendly and helpful in suggesting attractions and restaurants. Breakfasts were also very nice. The rooms were soundproofed very well. Location was on the quiet end of Duval Street.

Room Tip: Ours was on the second floor in the back of the building.

We recently had the opportunity to stay at the Avalon B&B in Key West, and it was an excellent choice! Located at the "quiet" end of Duval St., this property is comfortable and peaceful. The staff there is gracious and caring, and the morning breakfast on the front porch was a treat. The accommodations are first class without being ostentatious. Each room has its own air conditioner, so temperature control was easy. The property is located within walking distance of many of Key West's prime attractions, such as the Hemingway House and the Key West Butterfly Garden (which is directly across the street). The exterior courtyard is private and serene, and the small swimming pool was perfect for an evening stretch after a long day of sightseeing and enjoying many of the area's attractions. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: If street noise (of which there wasn't a great deal by late evening) bothers you, ask for a room...
