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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

We spent a couple of nights at the Heron House on Simonton St in KW recently. Our room was on the first floor facing the pool. Our $200 room was modest, read very small. Approximately 10x12, including the built in! In fact the sleeping area was only twice the size of the bath. The bath area was large. The bed... More
