“Friendly staff, Great location!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We spent a week enjoying Key West using our mini suite as a home base. Accommodations were very clean. Property was undergoing some routine maintenance but staff was friendly and unobtrusive. Staff was very helpful and offered suggestions for restaurants, entertainment and tips for getting around. The location was perfect for quiet evenings in, as it was only a couple blocks from the Southern Most Beach (the quiet end of Duval St.), yet just around the corner from the main entertainment strip, Duval Street. Mallory Square and the famous Key West sunset is only a 10 minute walk down Duval St. On our last day our flight didn't leave until 6pm and the staff offered to keep our luggage for the day. They even let us hang out at the pool until our cab showed up. Super friendly and thoughtful staff. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Location is the best, room service great, homey feeling. Close to Duval Street but still tucked in the most beautiful side street. But what made the difference was the most friendly, down to earth staff named Chris!!!! What a way to make the guests feel at ease! Knowledgeable, calm, professional.

We just overnight because of a last minute detour in Key West. Well, I regret we did only one night...the venue is awesome, so cozy and perfectly clean. There's plenty of room, the style is the right blend of traditional and modern, the furniture is of good quality. The hotel is quite close to the vibe of the downtown, but apart enough to be quiet and calm. The service is friendly and open to any request, very professional and kind.

I was in Key West in 1976. My how it has changed. Except for the hospitality of the Douglas House. Room was quaint, roomy, and larger than I expected. All the employees went out of their way to answer any questions and help in any way. Room V (for Vendetta) was awesome. Will stay again on my next trip, just hope it's not such a long time between visits.

Douglas House has a great location. Only a block off Duval Street, the Douglas House is an ideal location for downtown restaurants, bars and shops.
The interior courtyard has a small pool and sitting areas that made you feel like you were in a Caribbean resort. The rooms are utilitarian and clean, but what really set Douglas House from the many other lodgings in Key West was the accommodating and friendly staff.
This was my second visit to Key West and my friend and I wanted to take advantage of Key West's many water activities. The staff, specially Chris, was extremely helpful in helping us book the best excursions. In addition he gave out great advice on restaurants telling us about a hidden gem, Only Wood, a brick oven Italian restaurant. So if you are interested in a quiet, affordable, well run, place to stay in Key West, you can't do much better than the Douglas House.

I read the review here regarding the folks who had left a few things behind and the Douglas House returned their items to them...We also left an item behind however when we called them about our left behind item the person handling our call did not offer to send it back to us...I was pretty put off by that reaction to not help us :^(
