Douglas House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Stayed here for 5 nights of relaxation (and to see Key West) after the hectic pace of Orlando. This is a fabulous little hidden gem just off the main Duval Street. The staff were welcoming, the pool area and grounds are lovely (and tropical) and our room (#9) had a balcony area overlooking both. Just fantastic.

The hotel is in the traditional style, small, and peaceful. Our room was lovely, was comfortable and had everything we needed. There are pool towels and coffee provided, plus the hotel is not far from the Southern Most Point.

This hotel really added to our enjoyable experience of visiting and staying in Key West and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: There are rooms of varying occupancy levels but if you are a party of 2-4 then number 9 is the only...

The Douglas House is a true Key West experience. A welcoming staff, beautiful grounds, a nice pool and a room that surpassed expectations. A great price for a room in the perfect Key West location. The pool is not big and I don't think this is the right hotel for families.

It was a wonderful - too short - stay in this little hidden Paradise. The place is very clean (room - pool area). The room we were in was fully equipped (kitchen - 2 beds 2 baths) and very clean.
The staff is very nice and you can find any information a the front desk if you are just paying attention and asking for the right question. People who complained about this place had no idea where they came and accuses people and place not to offer what they were expecting - probably because they have no idea what they were expecting.
We will be back at the Douglas House FOR SURE!!!!

Visited June 23' 2014"
Absolutely perfect. Great location, and our room was clean & comfortable. The staff was very accommodating & friendly. After we returned home, I realized that I forgot a few personal items in our room. A week later, I called Kim & Chris at the front desk, and they had my items. I mailed them a prepaid envelope, and they returned my items promptly. Top notch friendly service. My wife & I will definitely stay at the Douglas House when we return to key West. Thanks again to Chris & Kim !

A little hidden gem. With it's garden sitting area and pool, made me feel welcome. The room was clean and very roomy. Just a few steps from Duval St. Less then 20 minuets walking time to any of the sites in the area.

Perfect location perfect room. First after booking the Douglas house they called to find out if we needed anything and that was two months in advance. After arrival Chris was so good showed us the surround property, serviced us a glass of wine showed us our room immediately started calling around to find an excursion for my wife and I for the following day. Not truly sure why the negative reviews from some travelers. This place is outstanding.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Key West. Right off Duval St near the Southernmost Point with quality restaurants around the corner. Do your self the favor and rent a scooter during your trip. It saves miles on your shoes and is a hoot to drive! The hotel has a small pool in a lovely grotto. The staff is friendly and helpful. STAY at the Douglas House and have a wonderful time. They have several different types of rooms including apartment style with a small kitchen, which is where we stayed.

Room Tip: Call and ask what accommodations are available as they have several types.
