Garden House
Ranked #61 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We stayed here 5 years ago and had an amazing time! This time around not so much. Without Nancy the atmosphere was dull to non existent. Happy hour was 4 beers and week old already opened wine. Pool was dirty all the time, my wife was severely eaten up by bed bugs. This place has taken a turn for the worse. Will never go again.

Having just returned from my second stay in two years at The Garden House Inn and second trip to Key West as well, I cannot help but write a review. The place is great and I am already planning my third trip for 2015! When you arrive, you are greeted warmly by the staff, John the owner both of my trips, but also his assistants. If you plan your arrival to Key West just right and arrive at The Garden House Inn around 5:00 you will be able to enjoy Happy Hour with beer and wine poolside. In the morning, between 8:30-10:30 a.m. a generous continental breakfast is laid out. From coffee or hot tea, to orange juice, to fruit and yogurt, to bagels and cream cheese to, my favorite... cinnamon (or blueberry) coffee cake. The rooms are neat and clean, and the resident cat, Gilbert welcomes you when you return from walking around Key West every day or night. Everything is well within walking distance, from The Conch Republic down to Mallory Square, and from Duval Street, past Margaritaville, all the way down to the southernmost beach and point (the bouy) you can reach it easily on foot, or rent a bicycle from The Garden House Inn, or a scooter or an electric car from a local vendor. Any concerns you have, may be comfortably addressed to the staff. Any questions you have, may be asked as well. I highly recommend The Garden House Inn (and just did to several co-workers).

Room Tip: I have stayed in 3 of the 10 rooms, all 3 were great.

I think all previous reviews are true and vary according to each person's expectations, mine is in between.
-GREAT LOCATION, relaxing and quiet, but needs real general improvements
-owner was very friendly
-room (Bougainvillea) was OK. floor tiles were loose
-pool was really small; leaves, etc., need to be removed every day
-breakfast: meager, no fruits
-happy hour: poor, beer was not cold and 5-6 sharp!

All I will say is that we will never go back. I could write many pages about this place, but it's not worth my time or yours. The location is convenient but the experience ends there. Please be extremely careful.

My husband and I have traveled to Key West many times, however, we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful staff at the Garden House. The place was immaculate and very well cared for. The breakfast was perfect with bagels, yogurt, fresh fruit, coffee and orange juice. Although they are only two blocks off Duval, it was quiet yet centrally located and close to everything.

We had the best time at Garden House. It is in a very relaxing setting. All of the rooms open out to a nice shady pool area. It is convenient to walk to everything. The people that run it are very friendly. We really enjoyed Key West.

Room Tip: This is definately a place we would stay again. Our four night stay was great.
