This place is very nice! Especial Chris (host), he's awesomely nice! He gave us a lot of great recommendations in terms of places to eat and water activities. If I'll come back visit one day I'll definitely stay at Douglas House again :)

Perfect location, just off Duval St, but not too close!

We were in room L7, which was very spacious and clean. There's a great balcony..which is described as shared, but is in fact fairly private.

Check in was a very pleasant experience...Chris is very friendly, welcoming and helpful, his colleagues seem a little less so!

Not cheap, but it is Key West!

Needed a last minute room. Found them on Hotel Tonight. Was a great deal. By the way, it was Memorial Day weekend. Anyway, my girlfriend and I stayed in #3. It has a steep loft area but we loved it. It has a huge outside private patio too. Its really a tropical paradise up here. I'm actually sitting in the patio right now writing this review. Staff was friendly, place was clean, I recommend highly.

Stayed here for two nights during our three week road trip
We arrived early afternoon but no problem were checked straight in and shown around the property. We got room 3 with full kitchen and lots of outside sitting area on the ground floor. Large bedroom, well appointed bathroom and living area. Two TV,s one in bedroom, one in living area.
Beautiful gardens and small pool area with complimentary coffee/tea and even sunscreen ! Nice touch!
We were lucky enough to get a parking spot right outside, but the hotel does have its own car park just one block away.
Ideally located just off Duval St and within walking distance to all Key West bars and attractions.

5 minute walk to Hemingway Home and lighthouse and slightly less to southernmost Point
Fabulous accommodation in the heart of Key West

We stayed at the Douglas House on our recent vacation in Florida. We booked the room for 1 night and wished we had longer. This is just such a beautiful place and the location is perfect for exploring key West. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel is right on the corner of Duval St but yet far enough up the street to not be in the middle of the loud craziness but close enough to join in all the action key West has to offer. The Douglas House is made up of many different rooms and several buildings. We had the loveliest 2 floor rental that was so clean and well furnished and quiet. They have a beautiful small pool in a courtyard that is just so lovely and tropical. Gorgeous plants, water falls, pools, Orchids....relaxing. I will definitely be back. Next time for a longer stay.

We just got back from our honeymoon where we stayed at the Douglas House and it was AMAZING!!!! The location was perfect for us since it was on the "quieter" side of Duval, but still near the action. We were greeted by Kevin who showed us around the B&B and to our room, and WOW I LOVED our room!!! It was clean and comfortable and just perfect for our honeymoon! (#14- Bismark Palm) The deck, pool area, and gardens are a beautiful oasis and extremely relaxing in the morning. (well anytime really.) If you need ANY ideas on where to eat and what to do you HAVE to ask Kevin and Kris! Speaking of Kris, let me tell you about this awesome guy. He is absolutely positively the BEST! If we needed anything we just asked Kris and not only would he give us great ideas, he would then make the appointments/reservations FOR us!!! I mean seriously how much more could you ask for?????? He took care of us and made us feel like royalty on our honeymoon which made the stay even more awesome. I can not say enough positive things about our experience there. If we ever go out to Key West again - the Douglas House will be where we stay without a doubt!!

Room Tip: We stayed in #14 which was a stand alone bungalow - PERFECT for honeymooners

We stayed in the Cuban Suites. It was nice in every way. Full kitchen, living room and a loft area with 2 double beds. Having our own washer and dryer was such a bonus. It was very clean and looked freshly painted. Even though these suites are located next door to the main building you can use the pool /garden area which was beautiful. Location was great with a convenience store across the street and CVS a block away. The only thing that could be improved would be adding some more glasses and cooking utensils. We enjoyed our stay. Thank-you

Room Tip: Smoking was allowed outside on the balconies which the cuban suites have 2 each.
