The Garden House Inn is Key West's most fun inn! Garden House Bed and Breakfast is very centrally located, only a block or two from Duval Street, the Historic Seaport, Mallory Square and Caroline Street, to name a few. We are a fun and relaxed B&B, with 10 rooms, all with private shower/bath. You'll most likely hear laughter spilling around the building from the other guests enjoying the free happy hour. Come over to join in the fun!

Wife and I really enjoyed visiting Key West and the room we had was part of the good experience. Parking was difficult but once parked everything was within walking distance and we didn't move car until we left. Well located, close to Duval Street and the ferry to Dry Tortugas Na

The good: Great location. Window AC worked well, no vermin, continental breakfast (no hot dishes).
The bad: Only on-street parking unless you pay $15 per day (if it's available) for an unsecured small lot 2-doors down. King bed kinda saggy, and the linens could definitely us

I am specifically looking for information on the West Indies Room at the Garden House Bed and Breakfast. Can anyone help?
I have stayed in that room. Clean comfy, and you have the front porch a s"private" That being said, we did have some guests sitting there from time to time. The bathroom was updated and clean, AC was cold, and the room was spacious enough I had my work laptop set up at the writers desk all week. If you are familiar with guest houses in Key West and their general style, this is in the mid to upper level as far as room cleanliness and quality. It would be higher, but Garden House is dated in general, so when compared to the recently refurbished houses, this one falls short (but is typically 60% the cost as well). To mew its a hidden gem. I don't need super fancy stuff and a breakfast, I just need a clean comfy room with a private entrance.

OH crap. We booked that room and are staying there in 4 weeks. When we booked we didnt know that a management company now runs the place. When I called back after booking i was rather rudely told that they couldn't acess the website that is still "owned" by the former owners. I do find that hard to believe. I find the existence of the website to be deceptive. They could at the very least put up their own website for the place. Calling it a B&B seems to be a bit of a stretch from everything I have read here. If we could get our money back and go elsewhere I probably would. I will write a review when we get back. I am praying the management company has paid attention to some of these reviews and made a few improvements. Will let you all know in April.
Okay, so after my panic attack we went on our trip and LOVED IT! Worried needlessly after reading some other disgruntled remarks. Guess what I found out when our taxi dropped us off at the wrong place one evening. There is a similarly named Garden House Inn just a few hundred feet down the street. I loved staying here and have to wonder if the negative remarks I read were about the other place. They had to be. We are actually trying to go back to Garden House. Highly recommend it.

I also have just recently booked the Writers King room, and am now very concerned. Any information at all I can get on this room will be greatly appreciated!
There is a note under your review that states "REvew colleced in partnership with this hotel" It makes me think you were paid or received a kick back of some sort to give a positive review of this hotel. SO I have to ask, what does that statement mean and did you receive any sort of compensation for your review?
I think it was reminding me to post a review on TripAdvisor. Seriously we loved it. In another post I mentioned there is a similarly named place down the street that looks like an apartment building on the outside. I think the negative remarks had to have been about that place. We found out about it when our taxi went to drop us off at the wrong place. If that hadn't happened I never would have known about the two places having such similar names. We are actually trying to go back to Garden House with our adult sons. Loved it there.

We just booked a trip to Key West and I found out AFTER we booked the Writer's Room at The Garden House that the site we looked at is actually a few years old and owned by the PREVIOUS B&B owner. The rates listed are not current and neither are the photos. The excuse the management company gave me was that the current owner does not have control of the website but that if you book online you are redirected to the management co. site so you get accurate info there. After reading these reviews I am scared to death to stay at this place and it seems doubtful they will refund our $ so we can go elsewhere. Hey Managment Co. if you read this, please know that I will give a fair and accurate review after our stay so please, fumigate for bed bugs, make sure the mattress doesn't sag waaay down in the middle, and the room doesn't have a moldy musty smell and cause an allergic reaction. You will get much better reviews that way. Really wish I had gone to trip advisor before spontaneously booking this room....help!

"Avoid Bougainvillea as it's right next to the pool equipment as on a main path to the rooms in back"
"don't pick West Indies room unles you like being woke up at night"
"Stayed in the larger room in front with front porch"
"I don't want to give away the secret of the best room at the b&b...sorry."
"Our choice of lodging was excellent so no worries there. The air conditioner in the room was fantastic! Just make sure you know that June in Key West is not like June in the Caribbean. It is stiffing hot and humid so make sure to hydrate and don't make the foolish mistake I made to go for a walk wearing a black dress!"
