“Great Location, Tons of Charm”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

My family recently spent 5 nights at the Simonton Court Inn for a wedding. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the location is hard to beat. Continental breakfast at the pool was not spectacular, but adequate, serving as a starting point for our busy days, not a destination. The rooms are quaint, clean and comfortable. We found ourselves, more often than not, gathering for a glass of wine in a rocking chair on the first floor open veranda facing Simonton Street. Great location, excellent vibe. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Note that some rooms have some daunting stairs to climb.

We had to wait 2 years to go on our honeymoon, and after reviews (and the adults only) we chose to stay at Simonton Court! We loved it. We stayed in the Periwinkle room. It was perfect for us. Close to everything, no need to rent a car, taxi, etc. The staff was great. They helped my mom surprise us with a basket! The breakfast was pretty decent, but being free is always a plus. The only thing I would change is that it starts a little late, half of the days we were there we had to be gone by 6-7 am and breakfast doesn't start til 8.

None the less, we are planning on returning to Key West in the summer of 2014 with my in-laws, and plan on staying at Simonton Court. Thank you for all you do! We had a great honeymoon (even if it was late)!

Excellent service and wonderful breakfast by the pool each morning! Enjoyed the prime location. The staff was most helpful with directions and suggestions as well. A must for my next visit! Beautiful and Historic!

Pleasantly landscaped property. Breakfast: rubber "hard boiled eggs", toaster waffles & French toast, coffee, etc...can only stand one breakfast day of that. I have stayed 3 times here and have seen most of the rooms, bathrooms are extremely tiny and shower has room for one person. Staff: pleasant. We took the time to look at other hotels that have the same location convenience to Duval Street. Prices are comparable. Pretty sure this will be our last visit. We were greeted with a letter that notified us that if we wanted to reserve for next year, there is a two day deposit required on the second day we stayed. As well, there will be a $30 daily increase. Left a bad taste with me... and our large group that vacations there every year did not reserve for next year.

Have stayed here twice - great location close (but not on) Duvall St - really feels like a paradise in paradise. Great facility and excellent service. Smaller buildings or cottages are well worth the extra cost. Breakfast served is simple, but good - each time I've stayed they've offered grapefruit, cereal, bananas, apples and toaster waffles, bagels, English muffins and toast with various jams and spreads.

Beautiful property close enough to everything Key West yet the gardens make you feel far enough away from Duval. Simonton Court is a fantastic place to stay. Everything from the staff to the property was just what I had expected. Only one word of advice... the rooms directly on Simonton Street can be a little noisy with morning/late night vehicles.

Room Tip: Look at the cottages or the rooms off of the main street if you are looking for a more quiet or more...

We just love Simonton Court. The location is perfect. Hidden gem is the best way to describe it. This property had loads of character. The office staff is so very accommodating, they are superb and make you feel like part of their family. This is the ONLY property we will stay at when visiting Key West.
