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.

Relaxing Get-Away

4.6 on March 22, 2014

My husband and I stayed in the Key Lime Loft for 5 nights. It was a bit small, but the attached private deck made up for it. The deck was so private with lots of tropical foliage surrounding it. The cushioned lounge chairs and table & chair set made it very comfy - I could be happy out there for hours! The staff were always very helpful. The pool area doesn't get much sun because of all the tall trees. I wonder if they could cut some of them back? Breakfast was plentiful: lots of fresh fruit and the usual breakfast items, but also every day there was a home-cooked specialty that was always delicious!


Convenient and quiet

3.6 on March 21, 2014

The Tropical Inn is right in the center of things on Duval Street. While there is certainly a lot of activity right outside, inside the Inn is a quiet refuge. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated and we loved having breakfast by the pool. It was also convenient to be able to rent bikes right at the Inn.


Best Weekend Ever!

This past weekend we celebrated our one year anniversary at the Tropical Inn, and it was beyond amazing!! The Atmosphere, the rooms, the Staff, the food, all of it, far exceeded our expectations. Thank you Jane, Brandi, Shelby, and Allen for making our anniversary so special. We are looking very forward to staying with you again! James & Amanda Wolfram
