Location is great, we have stayed in the Keys before and rented a scooter to get around. There was no need on this trip, this hotel is one block off Duval street. Clean rooms, comfy bed, small bathroom, room was big, we had a king bed. Beer, wine , cheese was a nice touch, but you have to be there...

My husband & I have been to the Heron House dozens of times. Since the last time we stayed in 2014, the place is disgraceful. Blood was on sheets and pillowcases, bar sink filthy, room hall light, porch light and staircase lights all out. Our hall light was replaced, but when we came back to room, glass fixture had fallen...

My fiance' and I booked this place to meet a group of friends for a weekend birthday celebration. Unbeknownst to us, it was also the weekend of the Poker Run Bikers weekend. Awesome! The location of the hotel is great. One block over from Duval but right in the middle of the 2 ends of Duval. It's a quick walk...

Spent 2 nights. I realize that this type of B&B are old buildings but having a bar sink in my room was not as important as having a sink in the bathroom. There was another sink but it was in the bedroom. Every time I used the bathroom I had to open the door without washing my hands. Gross, when...

We went for 2 nights and really liked the location and friendly staff. We visited most of the attractions just walking since it was located just one block from Duval Street. Will recommend to friends and family if they want to visit Key West in the future. Not for kids.

The room was very nice and comfortable. Very light and open with 12' ceilings and French doors. The bathroom was large with a huge Jaccuzi tub plus a seperate shower. I picked the Tropical King room so it was decorated Tommy Bahama style. There is decking all around and there was a table and 2 chairs outside my door to...

My husband and I stayed here Aug 31-Sept 4. The location was perfect, just a block off of Duval St., the staff was very friendly. Now for the bad, the foliage around the grounds I thought was overgrown and with the humidity and dampness from the storms, our first room had a roach on the bathroom counter the first morning...

The hotel is very close to Duval street where all the action in Key West is yet very quiet. The room was beautiful with a huge king size bed. Breakfast Included. Very nice area around the garden of the hotel. Very clean and helpful staff. WE would definitively stay there again. Parking as in most hotels in KW is hard...

This is the first time that we stayed at this bed and breakfast. The facility is in perfect shape. The front desk is there for you and very personable. Our room was unique and very comfortable.
