Blue Parrot Inn

916 Elizabeth Street , Key West, FL 33040 USA (Show map)

About

The Blue Parrot is a relaxed friendly and quiet house that welcomes all adults (16+). Originally built in 1884, the inn reflects classic Bahamian charm with an overlay of Victorian gingerbread. Sweeping verandas provide outside access to the rooms. It is located just off US1 (Truman Ave), and only 2 blocks from the famous Duval St. Beaches, restaurants, clubs, shops and galleries are all within very easy walking distance. The setting is secluded with lush tropical foliage and exotic plants abound in our gardens. A buffet breakfast is included each morning by our pool, which is heated for your comfort. Our rooms vary in size and decor but all feature AC, ceiling fan, phone, cable TV and private bath. Most also have a refrigerator. Ten minutes from airport. Reservations strongly suggested.

Adorable & Quiet Stay

4.0 on June 13, 2016

I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and it was very pleasant. The room was nothing special but it was very cute and had everything we needed to be comfortable and enjoy our stay. The area was very quiet and tranquil environment surrounding the Blue Parrot Inn. I would definitely recommend to friends looking for somewhere close to all of the action in Key West!


The Blue Parrot Inn is FANTASTIC!

4.8 on June 03, 2016

Key West is an amazing place with its historical forts, museums, and night life! The Blue Parrot Inn enhances all that the city has to offer. Nestled in the middle of Key West, one can easily walk, bike, or drive to any destination in the city. The rooms are large and clean. The staff is kind and helpful. The amenities are wonderful with free wifi, breakfast, and a pool. The Blue Parrot Inn is my family's number one choice while staying in Key West!


Exploring the USA

Though this place was what some would call quaint, it is somewhat dreary. They could really use some higher watt lightbulbs so that you can see. Definitely not a place if you have any type of vision limitations. Make sure you bring your own padlock to lock up your valuables while out exploring. The armoires have a hole for them. If you need a hairdryer or an alarm clock you must get them from the front office. We were in the large suite which was quite roomy. However the TV was only 20 incher and couldn't be comfortably seen from the bed. This place is also a long way from Hemingway's house and other attractions such as Mallory Square. It definitely wasn't the worst place we stayed on our 21 day road trip through the southeastern USA, but wasn't the best either.

Great Hidden Gem!

4.6 on May 03, 2016

Needed a place to stay for a wedding. Found the Blue Parrot and was quite surprised with what I received for what I paid. The room is just a small room with a bathroom, full sized bed. It was all my girlfriend and I needed, for we did not spend much time in our room. The atmosphere there is very great and the pool is an awesome spot to relax with friends. I will say I was quite surprised with this spot and will definitely go back in the future.


Key west in a flash

Although only in key west overnight the blue parrot made every accommodation so that our stay was great! Super rooms, spacious pool and a jungle of a backyard oasis. Would return!


Charm and comfort in Historic Old Town Key West

4.0 on May 01, 2016

The Blue Parrot Inn is a beautiful gem nestled in historic old town Key West, within a pleasant walking distance from all the attractions and treasures that Key West has to offer. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and spacious and with a historic charm. The surroundings are inviting and relaxing. I wish I had stayed longer to enjoy all the amenities that The Blue Parrot has to offer. My only complaint is the absolute lack of parking the inn provides. There are only five parking spaces offered to guests, which is less than half of what the inn holds on a daily basis, and these parking spots are almost never available. Be prepared to park on Truman Avenue, most likely many blocks away from the Inn if you stay here. Overall, however, this was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Key West.


Our first time to Key West

Nice location

4.4 on April 20, 2016

Very nice and close to Duvall Street. Only downside is no designated parking. There are 4-5 spots in front of inn and some close by on main road. Pool was nice. Overall a great place to stay
