Delightful B&B tucked away from the noise of the Green Parrot Bar next door. The breakfasts were excellent, the proprietors friendly and helpful, the grounds attractive, and the location convenient to the fun and food of Old Town Key West. My only complaint was the poorly functioning toilets. Other than that, it's a fabulous B&B.
My husband and I went down for a weekend to Key West and enjoyed our stay greatly. Skip and Jen were so nice, helpful, and informative. They were friendly from the moment we walked in the front door. Directed us to nice places to eat and listen to music. The location was perfect. The house felt comfortable and welcoming! Will definitely stay there whenever we decide to visit Key West again.
We stayed in the Ashe Cottage and it was perfect. I room had one and a half baths, a living room, and a small kitchen that had everything we needed. The room was around back so we were secluded from the rest of the rooms and even had our own little sitting area out front. The hotel is also a perfect location. Its in a nice quiet neighborhood but close enough to all the action. We rented bikes from the front office and just rode around on the bikes the entire time we were there. The morning breakfast isn't a lot but was perfect for us. It was just fruit, bagels, french toast which you toast yourself, cereals, and oatmeal. We didn't need much more than that. We will definitely be returning on our next trip.
Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Room was very cute but our bathroom was a little too small. Guests in the pool area were very nice and talkative. It was only a 15 minute walk to duval and you pass some wonder places on the way for example places for dining or the key west cemetary.
The hotel is situated in a nice spot about 2 miles from mallory square and all other attractions but not too far. Bike are available for rent and that is probably the best way to go around. The pool is open until 10 PM which is great and the morning breakfast was also pretty good (boiled eggs/breads/juices/fruits etc.). Rooms are big and they have a common kitchen for guests to cook as well. They have a fridge and a common bathroom for you to shower even after you check out and need to come back. Very nice place with a semi-hostel like feel. I stayed with family and they enjoyed!
From the moment of our arrival and through to our last few moments on the front porch before departing, our Memorial Day weekend stay at Marrero's was nothing short of perfect. Great location, gorgeous property and a friendly, personable staff that was always ready to assist. We will be returning for sure, and already looking forward to it.
The house is in a good location, close to the action. Room and shared areas are ok - but nothing special. Pool is fine, but small. Good friendly staff. Breakfast is just ok - nothing special. Good air conditioning in the room.
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 room was cute, nicely decorated and clean. Lots of towels, toiletries. However the door handle to the room was stripped and it was easy to get locked out, didn't open without the key while turning it. Breakfast was ok. No hot food like you usually get with a B and B. I would stay again. Great value.
This is a stunning B&B with service second-to-none. The employees were excellent. Rooms clean. Welcoming environment. The location is perfect; within walking distance of everything. I would absolutely go back, and I highly recommend this B&B to anyone.
Author's Guesthouse was very welcoming to me and my partner! It was our first time in Key West so they helped us pick and choose some awesome restaurants and necessary sites to see. The Harry Truman room had a nice private balcony to enjoy our morning coffee while overlooking a quiet street. We enjoyed being able to get away from the hustle of Duval street, but still be close enough to walk almost anywhere!!! Great service. Nice and quiet B&B.
My husband and I went to Key West for our second anniversary. We decided to stay at the Coco Plum and I am so glad we did. Our room was very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and even let us have a late checkout on our last day which really helped us since we were taking the Key West Express back. The breakfast was included and it was delicious! There was a simple menu to select from - eggs, omelets, pancakes, french toast and a few other things. It is made fresh to order and was very good. The pool was open 24 hours a day and it was clean and nicely landscaped. We were right next door to the Green Parrot which was kind of loud at night but not unbearable. All in all I would highly recommend the Coco Plum!
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!
Key West is a relaxing retreat often portrayed as a tropical paradise in books and film. In addition to being one of most romantic places to visit year-round, Key West offers plenty to do, see and eat. Follow these tips when you enjoy the sand and sun of the Florida Keys.
What to see:
Follow the Hemingway trail - Pay a visit to the stately home with beautiful grounds that Ernest shared with his family before heading to Cuba. Then head to one of the bars and eateries said to be among his favorite hot spots, including the rowdy staples Green Parrot Bar and Sloppy Joe’s Bar.
What to do:
For entertainment, head to the old-timey Tropic Cinema or see a live show at the cute Waterfront Playhouse. Another must in Key West is to immerse yourself in the surrounding natural beauty with a ferry ride to Dry Tortugas National Park where you can visit the old fort, take a guided tour and even do some fabulous snorkeling. Pay a visit to the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory to see a unique variety.
When you are ready to cool off, head to the beach! Fort Zachary Taylor has an excellent beach, and another lovely one is the quiet Rest Beach. Or for a little more adventure, take a chartered boat for drinks and cruising, dolphin watching or deep sea fishing with Easy Day Charters, Blue Eyed Trader Private Charters or Wild About Dolphins. Another fun activity is to take a paddleboard lesson and eco-tour through the labyrinthine mangroves with SUP Key West.
Where to eat:
Much of Key West’s cuisine is influenced by that of Cuba. Try the fancy El Siboney in Old Town for the most authentic Cuban sandwich or paella. For other excellent Caribbean fare, head to Louie’s Backyard on the water or Blue Heaven Restaurant, which is pretty relaxed in true Caribbean fashion.
