About

Artfully blending the hushed privacy of a boutique hotel with the intimacy of a romantic bed and breakfast, The Tropical Inn is a haven of tranquility in a most unexpected central location: at the midpoint of legendary Duval Street, within walking distance of all Key West attractions. This romantic Key West bed and breakfast consists of the lovingly restored main house, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and three charming cottages clustered in a lush tropical garden with a fabulous waterfall pool and spa. Meticulously clean, professionally designed interior and garden spaces are tastefully furnished in a tropical motif evocative of the European colonial era in the East and West Indies. Rooms at this lovely Key West inn have private baths, queen and king size beds, minifridges, ceiling fans, air conditioning, telephone, cable TV, and Wi-Fi Internet access. A microwave oven is centrally located for the convenience of guests. Most rooms feature adjacent porches or decks, and three Garden Cottage Suites have very private outdoor areas with their own spas! A tantalizing expanded continental breakfast buffet is served each morning on the garden terrace. This hospitable Key West B&B is a family owned and operated establishment. An emphasis on guest comfort, personal service, and attention to detail is evident throughout this charming Florida Keys bed and breakfast.

Great Place, Close to it all!

4.2 on August 21, 2015

We stayed here for 3 nights in August. First time to Key West for my husband and I (early 30s). The location was amazing- close to sites, shops, restaurants and bars! Even though it's so close to the nightlife, it felt so peaceful one we entered the building and garden area. We were upgraded to a larger cottage room and the AC was the quietest AC ever! Great breakfast options- breads, jellies, cereal, yogurt, fruit, meat, cheese, hard boiled eggs, OJ, cranberry juice and coffee. Only thing they didn't offer was water, unless you paid for it. Small pool that we used after a night out, and towels to use offsite at the beach and boat ride. Also they gave us complimentary wine tasting at the bistro next door.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are delighted that you were pleased with the complimentary upgrade, quiet AC, and healthy breakfast ... with one exception ... water at breakfast, which must have been an oversight on our part during your visit. Normally, we have single-serve bottled water in the same giant clam shell where the yogurt is served, under ice. We are so sorry that you didn't ask, so that we could have remedied the shortcoming immediately, rather than necessitating a visit to the drink cooler in our honor snack bar. 100% guest satisfaction is our goal, every day. We hope you will give us another chance soon to prove that in a return visit.

Key West Weekend

4.2 on April 26, 2015

This was my first time in Key West, and the Tropical Inn was a wonderful place to stay. It was quiet and the vegetation afforded privacy even when others were on the patio. Coming up on 30 years of marriage, I loved the opportunity to buy a Love Lock. We also appreciated that it catered to quiet couples. My only suggestion would be to include some "out of the ordinary" goodies for breakfast, but perhaps this is due to the hot weather.


Tropical Inn is a great place to stay in Key West

This is a wonderful B&B, beautiful accommodations, great and friendly service and an idyllic pool and hot tub rear yard that makes you feel you are in a tropical paradise. Grab one of the separate cottage/rooms if available. And it is central to everything. We'll be back. N & V


Love this place! We WILL BE BACK!!

My fiance and I absolutely loved this location. Jane, Allen, Brandi and Shelby were so friendly and the rooms were amazing. All up-to-date furnishings and decor. You can certainly tell the countless hours they have spent keeping this place looking like a gem! The location is right in the heart of Key West on Duval Street. We were able to walk pretty much everywhere. Rob and I brought a "Love Lock" to add to the many there on the bird cage. We were engaged in Key West over Mother's Day 2014 and felt it would be something nice to see on our return trips. We will definitely be staying at the Tropical Inn going forward for sure!


Another PERFECT Stay

Two couples felt so at home and comfortable for 3 nights. We never wanted our trip to end! Jane, Allen, and Brandi are wonderful. The breakfasts are mouth watering and the property is beautiful. It is in the best location on the Island and easy to walk to everything. We can't wait to come back!


The perfect place to stay

We loved our stay at the Tropical Inn. We were right in the middle of everything going on bur when you closed the door behind you ..you are transported to your own haven. The pool and gardens are perfect. Jane and Allen made us feel like family and we're such a help with ideas while we weres there.

Downtown in the middle of Everything, yet VERY peaceful!

3.6 on June 11, 2014

My husband and I spent 4 days at the Tropical Inn for our 25th Anniversary and we had the Gecko Garden room. Room was very nice & clean! Looked just like the pictures from the website. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to walk to practically everything and yet come back to a very peaceful & tranquil environment. We had our own private jacuzzi/spa which was wonderful. The whole place is very well taken care of and you see the owners, Shelby & Brandi everyday! The staff are very helpful with any sort of reservations or needs. Prices are very comparable if not better than staying in a resort, plus without all the chaos and noise. We arrived earlier than the check-in time and they had our room ready so we could go ahead and check-in early, which was very nice since we had drove from NC. We were extremely pleased and happy with our stay here and when we return we will stay here again!
