The hotel is two blocks from the center of Duval St. The staff is very friendly. The room was probably the cleanest that I have stayed in the Keys. Walking distance to most Key West attractions. Quiet. Great coffee. There are a few parking places in front. They stayed filled during my weekend stay but I was always able to...

We had a recommendation from friends to stay here. We were on the 2nd floor. Room was adorable, Caribbean colors, comfortable bedding, very clean. Walking distance to everything, but in a quiet section. We also felt very safe. The woman running it was very helpful and friendly- we apologized for running late in checking out- she was very gracious! The...

Looking for a place to stay in Key West that won't max out your credit card is quite a challenge. The Caribbean House helps solve that problem. Yes, the rooms are small...but the are extremely clean. In fact the entire property is very well maintained. The location is perfect, you can walk everywhere. I found the neighborhood to be very...

I usually like big anonymous hotels, but I trusted the reviews of this place. It has a great location with the ability to walk most anywhere. But because it's in the thick of it all, don't expect a good nights sleep. Sound sleepers will do fine. Light sleepers should bring earplugs, a noise machine, or any other distraction. And you...

Thanks Marie for another great stay. Carribean House is a great place to stay. It is cost friendly, good location, pet friendly, and a great friendly host. Yes the rooms are small but comfortable. I ask do you go to Key West for the room or the experience of Duval Street? With its location, you can walk across the street...

Good place for the money small but not expensive at all. We will stay again. This inexpensive place allowed us to spend more money else where and enjoy Key West. The rooms were clean and Marie was more than willing to help with any of our needs

Those who have poorly rated this lodging did not do their research. Here are the facts: the rooms are smaller than a hotel, there are only four on site parking spaces, the room was clean and up to date, the rate was minimum $100 less than everyting else we looked at, a very convenient location for anyone in reasonably good...

If you've priced Key West rooms, then you know this is a great deal. Manage your expectations though—our room was small and very basic, but the great rate reflects that. Perfectly located too (just blocks from Duval Street in one direction and the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park in the other, and just up the street from the...

First and foremost, let us understand what the Caribbean House is. It is a budget friendly option for travelers looking for a bed to sleep in. It is in a great location, walking distance from anything and everything you may want to experience in Key West. My wife and I were already paying to stay somewhere else but didn't want...

First, I am sorry that this nice couple did not like our guesthouse. Yes the room are little but they are clean, we changed the mattresses they are memory foam mattresses now, the guests have no remote control for the a/c but we will change the temperature at they convenience when they ask, at the CARIBBEAN HOUSE all the rooms...

The Caribbean House proved to be a fortunate choice: reasonably priced and right in the middle of things in Key West. The room was very small, but we were in Key West: we only needed to sleep there. The house itself is in good condition and has a very charming appearance. We were just across the street from enjoyable bars...
