Reviewed 16 November 2013

My fiance and I arrived on a Monday, got married on Wednesday and stayed at The Avalon thru Friday. We arrived late but were clearly advised on key retrieval, parking, check in, and our room was lovely! A bit small but we found it cozy and perfect for our "Wedding Week". We got married just after sunrise on Wednesday and were greeted and congratulated upon our return! Since it was just the two of us, we were often off exploring. Upon returning to The Avalon we could relax on the front porch watching the goings-on or sit in the back by the pool and enjoy the breeze! Beautiful and very clean!

Room Tip: Decide if you want to be in the Main House; there are rooms out by the pool that are not attached...

I stayed with my boyfriend back in 2009 (tripadvisor allows only dates back to 2012 sorry for that) and we had nothing to complain except the slightly unpersonal feeling the reception staff gave us. The breakfast served on the front porch was enough to fill your stomach until noon and gave you a good start in the day. Beds were comfy and the old romantic style of the room was perfect for our taste and purpose. It is at the far end of Duval Street so nothing for people who don't like to walk much but as many of the attractions are as well at this end of town just take the bike for the other end like mallory square etc.
I just visited the premises again during my stay in KW this octobre 2013 and nothing had changed. Still a good place to stay.

We ended up at the Avalon because there were very few rooms available near Duval for Fantasy Fest this year, and am so glad we did. We checked in late so they left us instruction on how to get in and where to park, easy! It's in a perfect spot, less than 2 blocks to the beach and an easy walk to all the festivities on Duval. The staff was great, and the manager Yvonne told us the history of the inn which was really fun to learn about. We were in room 26, great room! It was large and had 2 queen beds, and gave us easy access to the amazing 2nd floor balcony. Our windows looked out onto the balcony, so windows need to be covered if others are out on the balcony. The mini fridge in all the rooms is a nice touch. We had brought a bottle of champagne and kept it in there. Everything was clean and neat, the lounge area in the lobby had everything you could want, computer and printer for boarding passes, coffee and tea, chilled beer and wine for sale, and cookies in the afternoon. The breakfast on the porch was fine with us. We are not big breakfast eaters, so the assortment of yogurts, fruits, breads ands bagels to toast, hard boiled eggs, juice, cereal, and sweets was more than adequate. If you wanted a more substantial breakfast there places only a few blocks away. The pool was small, but we used it one hot afternoon and enjoyed sitting outside where there are plenty of lounging spots. Big thanks to all the staff, you do a great job.

Room Tip: Room 26 was big with 2 queens, plenty of room and looked out on Duval.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are very happy you chose to stay with at us at Avalon for Fantasy Fest. It is such a great event. Not only for those visiting us and participating in the festivities like yourselves, but in true Key West tradition it also raises so much money for local charities.

Thanks again and hope to see you next year!

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.

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.
