My wife and I stayed in Cottage 4. It was immaculate. The gardens and pool were beautiful with a nice pool bar. The wine room was unique and a different experience. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was excellent in a peaceful relaxing atmosphere. Less than a block from Duval but like you were in your own private oasis.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

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.

Returned recently from a long weekend at this most amazing place to stay. Loved how close we were to the action but so far from the noise and crowds with just a short walk. We stayed in the Master suite and loved all the charm and convenience. The balcony is so wonderful with lounge chairs and a bistro table and...

Once again since 2006 we choose to stay at the Gardens Hotel. We are always amazed by how beautiful the grounds when you first walk into the Gardens. The staff is always warm and welcoming whenever we come back to check in. We enjoy staying in the Gardens Rooms which have very comfortable full king beds and a private porch...

We stayed in Cottage #1, which was the perfect size for a couple. There was a nice "living room" type area, and the bedroom and bathroom were comfortable with nice touches of luxury. The front porch of the cottage was perfect for coffee in the morning, or nice shade in the afternoon. The quarters were private, but steps away from...

A great place to stay with separate apartments in a heritage building for a reasonable price. The inn is tastefully and carefully appointed almost with an European flare. The garden staff was most attentive speaking with passion about the plants and the turtles present. Breakfast was simple with scrambled eggs, choice of breads, jams, cheese. A self help wine-bar with...

This is a quaint inn! Very much the Key West feeling of quiet calmness. I could have stayed in the chair on the porch all day. The staff are very accommodating too. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the Keys.

Situated on an acre of resplendent rain forest-like landscaping after a day of Duval, Southernmost, and other crowd-inducing locations the Gardens is just what the guru ordered. We stayed in the Carriage House, room 4A and it was the most enjoyable hotel room we've encountered in quite some time. Amenities abound starting with a very complete complimentary breakfast. There are...

We arrived approximately two-hours early to check-in (from the Key West Express-Ft. Myers), and the staff was wonderful and asked us if we wanted to drop-off our luggage (which we did). The staff then offered us a glass of champagne and recommended two restaurants (both on Duval St) to grab a great lunch while our room was being prepared: Mangoes...

The check in process was a breeze and given a glass of complimentary Proseco! The entire staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was very clean and nice with a balcony.
