“Excellent Bed & Breakfast”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Lovely, atmospheric bed and breakfast hotel. The staff very friendly and courteous. The rooms and facilities excellent. Really comfortable beds and the rooms impeccably clean. Continental breakfast extensive and served on the verandah outside. The location is very good - but nowhere is far away from anything in Key West! They have parking facilities (directly outside hotel for unloading/loading) and longer stay about five minutes walk away. This is a good thing because cars are not necessary in Key West.

Would definitely stay there again when in Key West.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay in Key West, as opposed to a report to hang out in, this is an excellent choice. We stayed in the small queen, which was certainly small, but the room was nice. A nice continental breakfast on the front porch in the morning, ice tea and warm cookies in the lobby in the afternoon. Nice place, very good value.

It has taken me a while to get around to writing this review but this is due to my own laziness and in no way a bad reflection on my stay at the Avalon B&B, in fact this is only the 2nd review I have ever written and so is testament to how highly I rated this B&B.

Firstly its location was ideal for me and the girlfriend, situated on Duvall Street but thankfully at the quieter end so that we could still walk to the lively spots but then retreat to the peace and quiet once we'd had enough. Also the southernmost point landmark is only a 1min walk around the corner.

The B&B itself looks amazing, it looks so inviting and really has that charming B&B look. The breakfast on the porch was very nicely done and seemed very relaxed and always had enough on offer. The room was a very good size with a beautiful 4 poster double bed. The room felt very safe and secure and didn't feel at all worried about thefts etc.

The customer service we received was exemplary, upon checkin the lady behind the desk was very helpful and gave us all the information we needed, there are even baked cookies each day free of charge which I certainly made the most of, possibly the best cookies I've ever had. A day after we'd checked out I realised I'd left something behind, Yvonne at the B&B was then very helpful in posting this to me at my following hotel location in Miami so that I had it for the rest of my trip and before I then left to return to the UK.

All in all a great place to stay, would definitely recommend and will stay again if I return to Key West which I certainly hope I will one day.

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?
