From the warm welcome to the sad goodbye, this hotel has so many good memories for us over the years. Wonderful (if a bit small by American standards) rooms, excellent food and great free cocktail hour to start the evening festivities. Pool is ok but there are better. One of KWF's finest. We will be back!

What can I say that hasn't been said about Island House? It is a home away from home for us now. The rooms are tiny compared to Hilton standards ... really, really small like 200 feet and with the huge bed, almost no walking space ..... my partner and I frequently ran into each other getting dressed in the morning....

Our first experience at the Island House was purchasing a day pass while staying at another gay guest house on Fleming, July of 2012. Being bored to death at our current "resort" we decided to spend the day at the Island House. All we can say is WOW! The level of excitement as well as amenities far surpassed anything we...

The hotel was great nothing special. The room we stayed was kind of small for the price we paid. The food was ok ,found better food away from the hotel. The reason for my rating is the staff. I wish they could be a little more concerned with guest request, especially for the price we paid.

Me and my husband spent 2 nights at this place and we should've spent more... The place is the best and the people who work there really helpful and friendly. We met amazing people and can't wait to go back. If you're thinking about visiting Key West, this is the place to stay.

I've stayed at the Island House many times over the past 10-years and always make return reservations as soon as I can. It's a wonderful retreat with an excellent bar/restaurant on site and some beautiful grounds. The rooms, while a tad small for the price, are clean and very well maintained. The location is a bit far from Duval but...

I primarily stayed here because it is clothing optional/nudist. The grounds, rooms, and facilities are very nice. The sun deck is perfect for an allover tan and is misted to cut down on the heat. The service level of the staff was great as well. It is a shame that the restaurant isn't open to the public. It's one of...
