We enjoyed our stay once again!

4.4 on May 09, 2016

We visited Key West and stayed at the Artist House. This was not our first time there. Our accomodations were nice, room was clean and kept tidy for us. There is a breakfast which was good - it had numerous options. If the afternoon there was a complimentary happy hour which is a nice plus. Snacks and wine, beer and soft drinks around the pool. All were nice and we had a very good time.


Spring break at the Artist House

5 on April 15, 2016

The Artist House has become our favorite destination! We loved our experience so much last year, we stayed there again this year, and fully intend to stay there next Spring break as well. If you're looking for warmth, charm, and excellent service...this is the place to stay in Key West! Jo, Laura, Helen, and their support staff are amazing!


Great Place to Stay in Key West

4.8 on March 06, 2016

We had a wonderful stay at the Artist House. The location is quiet, yet close to everything you want. We loved sitting in the garden for breakfast or happy hour, which was a nice plus. We stayed in the Morning Room. It was comfortable with a nice porch off of the bathroom. Would definitely come back again!


The Artist's House - Our new "go to" place in Key West

4.4 on January 23, 2016

We had such a wonderful stay at the Artist's House. Our room was wondering, the inn is beautiful. But its hidden secret is the staff. Outstanding and personable service. Just how well you're treated by everyone is reason enough to stay here. Of course, the Artist's House is beautiful also


Great location and relaxing Key West visit

The staff was wonderfully outgoing and friendly and offered different ideas for things to do that met our needs for our visit to Key West.


Great Experience Overall

4.4 on December 10, 2015

The Artist House was very clean and exceeded advertising photos. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was pastries, fruit, yogurt, etc versus a hot bar. It also didn't start until 8:30 which is fine if you aren't an early riser. Other than that, we had a flight change 8 days out and got stuck with an unused night as they have a 16 day cancellation policy. The would not relist the room until we were officially checked out. Location is very convenient to Duvall Street and Old Town Area. Small parking area available for 20/night but a car is not needed if you plan to stay on the island. Plenty of bikes, cabs, and trollies if needed. Great experience overall.

We arrived a day early and Laura found us a place to stay for the night we had not booked there. Extremely helpful!!! The house was what we expected as was the room. Nothing fancy, but comfortable and located in the heart of everything.

Stayed here for a couple days with my girlfriend last month. Everyone that works there is extremely friendly and it's one of the cleanest places I've stayed at.


Beautiful Home and Outstanding Staff

5 on September 14, 2015

I was very impressed with this Inn and the wonderful staff! We were excited to stay in the Turret Room and Laura helped us facilitate a tour that featured the doll that made the house and room so popular! She and all of the staff for that matter were very kind, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delish and I loved having Mimosa's in the morning along with the wonderful buffet! The house is very well maintained and beautiful and full of lovely antiques! I am a clean freak and felt the cleanliness was exceptional! This Inn has ranked the top of my B&B experiences! We will be back again!
