The Gardens Hotel was exactly what we hoped it would be: tranquil, relaxing, and yet still in walking distance (less than one block from Duvall St) from most everything we wanted to see on our first visit to Key West. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. Our Courtyard room was of good size with high ceilings, which made it...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 March 2017 via mobile

Wow, what a special place. We enjoyed everything about The Garden Hotel. It's a small, unique and fabulous place to stay. We chose one of the cottages on the property and loved it. Truly enjoyed the breakfast buffet and dining poolside every morning. Our only regret was we didn't stay longer.

My wife and I have stayed at the Garden's Hotel in Key West for 12 straight years and it is still worth it. From Nancy checking us in, to Jim keeping an eye on everything, John tending bar, Alicia maintaining the gardens and Kate, sitting with the guests, it is like an extension of our family. The accommodations are great,...

It was a beautiful property and the amenities were excellent. It is within walking distance of the heart of Key West. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The gardens were very peaceful and early evening entertainment was fun and enabled us to meet others

Loved our stay in one of the cottages! The cottage pool was quiet, semi private and very relaxing; only shared with those in the cottages. Wifi was available in our cottage and had no issues with speed. A shared back patio and a front porch to sit, relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Enjoyed walking the gardens and watching the...

This is our 2nd time with The Gardens Hotel. The staff is wonderful. The setting consists of historic old Florida cottages nestled into a gorgeous, lush tropical garden that couldn't be more lovely and relaxing. With the May heat we couldn't wait to dip into their azure blue swimming pool. All amenities were top-notch, including breakfast and Sunday Jazz. I...

We had such a wonderful experience at this lovely B&B! The location was amazing, and the staff was very welcoming. Our room was beautiful and clean, and the outside pool area was amazing. We will definitely stay here anytime we are in Key West again!

Amazing hotel. Perfect for those that want a relaxing secluded environment right around the corner from Duval street, this is the perfect place. Amazing complementary breakfast, bar tender makes amazing drinks and the rooms are so clean and relaxing. Very nice gardens. We loved our stay and will be coming again soon!

We have stayed at the Garden Hotel three times in the last two years. Their customer service is excellent and accommodations are very nice. Their pool, bar and wine room are excellent. The pool provides a very quite relaxed atmosphere. We have notice that there are some signs of facility aging that we hope are addressed.

Thank you for your comments! Yes indeed we are addressing these issues. Our Courtyard rooms will have a remodel in early October. Painting is always a project it seems when we finish it is time to start all over again! Again, thank you for your loyalty to our Hotel and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

This hotel has the perfect location , half a block from busy Duval street yet a very peaceful and beautiful place to stay. We parked our car (25 dollars a day) at the hotel and walked everywhere. We stayed in cottage 3 and it was fantastic. Had a private pool to share with 3 other cottages. Breakfast was continental and...
