“Not Our Cup of Tea”
Reviewed 27 April 2009

I researched for hours to choose the right place for a special celebration during Christmas week. I chose Casa 325. It is a tough place to find and I have to agree about the guy at the end of the driveway. He was painting the numbers or something and that was why we had such a time finding the place.

We made arrangements to have a suite but at first were being sent up stairs to a room. Once it was clear why I requested a first floor room we were taken to the suite we had reserved. Apparently there was some other party coming in and a switch was going to be made without our consent. Those two things didn't make a very good impression but we were determined to enjoy our stay.

The location is perfect. You can walk everywhere and we love being at that end of the street. The price was very high as it was a holiday week but I was expecting a lot from the reviews too.

The suite was immaculate and on first sight great. Unfortunately the furniture was not comfortable to sit on and the bed was not very comfortable either. The air conditioner blew right on us while we were sleeping. It was supposed to be a queen bed but didn't feel much bigger than a double. We have a queen at home so I has something to compare. The suite has a little fridge and microwave which is very convenient. The most comfortable place to sit was the table and chairs in the kitchen area.

There is a really great porch in front of the room that is shared with the suite next door. That was a big issue for us. We don't smoke and the other suite did. They were at the table 24/7 most of the time in their pajamas! We couldn't leave our doors open and enjoy the beautiful weather because of the smoke. We love to sit outside and it was simply impossible unless we went to another outside area to sit. Our bedroom also was right over the maintenance shed/area where the staff gathered at 7 a.m. and then started the leaf blower!

We loved the kitties around the Inn and certainly the location. We didn't get off on the right foot and that was hard to overcome for our visit.

I can certainly see why others would love the place with a large group because you could have the porch and pool area to visit. It just wasn't what we were hoping for and probably won't stay again. Just not our cup of tea.

Casa 325 is a wonderful B&B with cozy rooms in a beautiful manor house. It is conveniently located on Duval street in the middle of Key West's best dining and shopping. We will definitely be coming back.

When we first arrived at Casa 325 the man with the cart that blocks their driveway was extremely rude. He told us we would have to drive around and wait to enter because he was with a customer. (Anytime you want to leave by car the vendor must move his cart for you.) That was not a good first impression. However, when we got to our room in the front building we were happy as it was extremely nice and clean. Our happiness was short lived because we could not sleep until 3:00 a.m. The noise from the street was so loud. Also the people staying in the room above us came in around that time and it sounded like they were still partying in their room. This was the worst night we have ever had while travelling. We really researched about staying on Duval Street and the website said the place was quiet. The front building was not quiet. The next night we were moved to a pool room in the back building. It was so quiet and the room was so big.
We don't know if we would stay here again. It is such a hassle to deal with the cart guy if you rent a car and want to get out and explore the area. Also we would recommend staying in the pool building unless you will be partying into the morning.

I travel to Key West about every three months or so and have for a while. This trip was for my husband's birthday. Casa was recommended by a friend who had stayed there before and what a great experience we had! Mary was wonderful setting up the reservation and making sure everything was perfect. The location was perfect, the room was perfect and our weekend was perfect! We are heading to Key West with friends in July and are spending a week at Casa 325. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Right off Duval St. This is a Prime location. We stayed in Rosie. Mary who works there is wonderful. She will help you with whatever you need. You can not go wrong with Casa 325. Everything is so close.

I've stayed here over the last 10 years and have always found it to be very enjoyable. Georgia and her staff always go out of their way to make us feel at home. The location is in the heart of Key West so you can walk to just about anywhere. The pool is great and very private. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Key West!

I have been to Key West four times. The first time the travel agent put us in a hotel away from everything, the next three times, we have stayed at Casa 325. We absolutely love this place and will always stay here anytime we go to Key West.
It is always spotless clean, the staff (especially Mary) is so nice, and you can not beat the location. We take a cab from the airport to the hotel and never need a car the rest of the week.
I have stayed at this hotel with just my husband, with a group of my girlfriends and with a large group of 15 people both married and single. This hotel is for everyone! You can't beat the value or location! We highly recommend it!
