Conch-style architecture harks back to this property's circa-1900 origins as a boarding house and cigar-maker cottages. Standard rooms in the main house are small, so opt for a superior room, slightly more expensive but a great deal larger. Airy, bright rooms have tiled floors and a complementary mix of antiques and reproductions, and are tastefully decorated in tropical colors. The guest rooms are nicer than the public areas, which include a pool and a weathered deck.

I booked a room here the day I drove down to Key West and was able to get a really good deal on the last available room, which just happened to be the owner's suite. Excellent room to ask for if it's available. Staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and well-kept. Continental breakfast was great with a lot of variety every morning. Balconys and patios available as well as charming, little pool. About a 10 minute walk to Duval St.,
which I felt safe walking even at night. In a good part of town, only negative is it was sometimes difficult to find parking on-street.
