This was our 5th trip to Key West and we always choose the Tropical Inn as our place to stay. We have stayed in 4 different rooms over the years and are never disappointed. The location is perfect on Duval Street. We are frequent visitors of the Vino's (wine/champagne) next store. Brandi, Jane, Allen, and Tammy are all like extended...

Our stay was in the gecko room. It was absolutely MARVELOUS. You enter through french doors which have the best room darkening curtains I have ever seen. I have to admit, I packed a sleeping mask because of the massive window on the wall the bed was against because I don't like any light when I sleep. I didn't need...

Stayed at the Tropical Inn during a last minute decision to visit Key West. Great B&B, friendly and helpful staff. Room had a great balcony on the back over looking the pool. Great location to all off the attractions, restaurants and cars.

Impromptu decisions often produce delightful results, don't they? We are so happy that we had availability, as having you with us was a pleasure. Hopefully, you will be able to return soon for a longer stay so that you may fully explore all the wonderful features of our lovely little island. Thank you so much for your kind review!

This was our 3rd trip to Key West and wanted to stay on Duval Street. When we were exploring our options and viewed the Tropical Inn we knew this is what we wanted. Everything was perfect from the time we walked in and met Brandi, all our requests, needs were met. Our room was lovely and we loved our porch/balcony!...

We regret that this guest and her husband were disappointed in their stay at the Tropical Inn, especially in light of the fact that they received a compensatory discount in consideration of the points she outlined. In our defense, I must explain for the readership here that the construction noise that occurred during two afternoons of their stay was the...

We stayed at the Tropical Inn for some days in January 2017 and have booked the Banyan Tree Suite for 3 adults. The room was lovely and comfortable with its own private deck with porch swing. The staff was friendly and we felt very welcome from the first moment. This small boutique hotel is located directly at Duval Street and...

We've visited Tropical Inn several times over the past few years. Brandi and the staff are simply outstanding. The location is ideal, bringing the balance of peace and quiet in the very comfortable room ( just the occasional rooster crowing, which is kinda cool ) and the garden patio, but just a short stroll to the hustle and bustle, including...

We stayed in the gecko cottage room, #11. Spacious and private with good sized bathroom with dual vanities, private patio with private hot tub, "bar area" with another sink, fridge, and microwave and coffee maker. They also supplied paper goods Everything to make for a comfortable stay. Very romantic inn and room with great mid Duval location. Highly recommend

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in the Gecko's Garden. Indeed, there is not another one quite like it on the entire island -- the ultimate romantic getaway, with its private patio with in-ground spa. We hope to have you back with us again soon!

My husband and I have enjoyed our stay at the Tropical Inn. We love our cottage with the private deck for us to enjoy our Continental Breakfast or to just sit out on an afternoon enjoying a drink and listening to the roosters crow around us! There is a beautiful swimming pool to enjoy as well as a hot tub....

What can we say? "Bravo" is about as good as it gets! The only thing we might add -- and we hope you will not object -- is that we are particularly flattered when creative talents such as yourself recognize the labor of love that "is" the Tropical Inn -- indeed, a hands-on family effort.
