Great place to stay, close and welcoming

5 on April 11, 2018

We had a wonderful stay at the Ambrosia. The room was clean and comfortable, nice view off the porch. Close to Duval. The staff was very welcome and helpful. The breakfast buffet was delicious! They had quite the variety for anyone's diet. We will definitely look again to stay at this location.

Great Room, Great Location

4.6 on April 02, 2018

We loved the Ambrosia B&B. We stayed in the Alligator Suite (#104). It was a beautiful room, downstairs adjacent to the pool. It has a very large private deck with table, chairs and sofa overlooking the pool. This is where we ate our breakfast served in the Gazebo at the far end of the pool. Ambrosia is just two blocks from Duval St. close enough for convenience, but just far enough to avoid the noise and crowds. Ambrosia is a great choice

What a beautiful place, great location, friendly staff. Will definitely be back!!

My friends and I truly enjoyed our short stay in Bob's Place at Ambrosia Key West. The staff were super nice, the room clean and comfy...highly recommended!

Great for dogs and their ladies

4.0 on March 09, 2018

Had a great time. Although dogs allowed, difficult to find much grass for “doggie business”. At least library back lot was near. Many dog friendly restaurants within easy walking easy walking distance. We really liked “Bobs Place “ with the second floor balcony complete with Key West hammock.

Women and dogs at Bob’s Place

Bob’s Place worked out great for our “girls with dogs “ vacation. The spiral staircase was a bit of a challenge at first but worked out fine. The balcony in the treetops complete with hammock was fabulous!

Definitely recommend

After scrambling online for last minute accommodation in Key West ,I lucked out and got a booking here.Id only been to Key West once before,and really only wanted a clean room with a shower after a motorcycle ride from Miami.What I got was a stay in a very pleasant spot,nice room,well situated to amenities and tourist spots.The healthy breakfast I had before striking out the next day was a very nice touch.

Weekend Getaway....

4.4 on February 11, 2018

This was our first time to stay at Ambtosia Key West. We had a nice stay. Rooms were clean. We were within walking distance to most everything. Breakfast was nice with more options than I expected. Only suggestion i have would be to turn the heat up on the hot tub. We will be repeat customers.

Quiet B&B in a great location

4.0 on January 24, 2018

We enjoyed our stay at Ambrosia Key West very much! We took the Key West Express in from Ft. Myers so it was a short walk from the boat terminal to Ambrosia. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with maps and recommendations. It was a little too chilly and windy to enjoy the pools, but I'm sure if you are there in the summer months, it would be a great way to relax. The rooms are clean and well maintained.

Charming B&B

4.6 on December 13, 2017

We only stayed one night at the Ambrosia Key West, but it was very nice. The staff was very helpful and accommodating.


4.4 on November 14, 2017

2-night stay at Ambrosia was excellent. Great breakfast buffet served each morning in gazebo by pool. Two smaller but charming pools, beautiful gardens and statues, very clean rooms, quiet at night and short walk to the busy Duval Street for shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Staff were super friendly, helpful and responsive. We didn't get there until after the office closed and they had our free parking spot marked off and a welcome envelope waiting for us. Would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful B&B

5 on November 08, 2017

We stayed at the Ambrosia Key West during Fantasyfest and it couldn't have been better. The room was very clean and service was excellent. The B&B was part of the local's parade stop and even gave the guests beads to give out as the individuals went by. The breakfast was also really tasty and more options to choose from than you would get at an average hotel. We will be coming back to stay again!

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful

5 on October 27, 2017

The ambrosia in bed and breakfast is a true Hidden Gem. The location is excellent. You can easily walk too many attractions. The rooms we're very nice, clean and comfortable. We had a second floor room with a balcony. Our view was of the pool and the surrounding area. The staff at the Ambrosia takes very good care of the property and all the guests. Breakfast each morning is served in the gazebo. The coffee is fantastic! You can do as much as you want or as little as you want. Very nice and comfortable sitting around the pools. They supply pool towels as well as sunscreen. In the afternoon, they have snacks and Ice-T in the gazebo. We also rented bicycles directly from the ambrosia. The bicycles were in very good condition and having them available on site was a bonus.

Wonderful Key West

5 on August 31, 2017

Wonderful Key West B&B. Warm, friendly staff. Close to all the acation without being to close !

excellent experience

3.8 on August 31, 2017

We were provided with an upgrade when our shower plumbing failed. The employees were outstanding with advice and service.

Key West Charm!

4.2 on August 07, 2017

Great Location, walkable to just about everywhere. On a quaint Key West street, close to Duval, between the port and the ocean, but just far enough to be quiet at night. Room, grounds, two pools, all ooze that special Key West ambiance. Bicycles available on site for daily rental. Breakfast served pool side was plentiful and diverse. Ice and fresh chilled water complimentary. Really enjoyed our stay!.

Love this place

4.6 on August 01, 2017

Excellant location in Key West. Not to far from the main strip. Rooms are awesome, well equipped, and relaxing atmosphere. Guest services are super helpful.

Ambrosia - Key West

4.4 on July 26, 2017

Very clean and excellent service. Centrally located to many attractions and eateries in old Key West. Breakfast was hot and delicious with a nice variety. Really appreciated that they were pet friendly to large breed dogs (Goldens) for only a minimal fee. Staff went the extra mile to accommodate requests - would definitely return in the future!

Little bit of paradise!!

5 on July 25, 2017

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. The place is fantastic. The people are fantastIc especially Lexi. Her knowledge of the area and personality will make us come back again dor a 3rd time

Quiet Oasis Close to Everything

4.4 on July 14, 2017

A group of four, we enjoyed our two side-by-side balcony rooms overlooking the pool. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help us out. The collection of cottages surrounding the lush gardens and pools was fantastic. So quiet, yet so close to all the action of Duval. In addition to breakfast, Ambrosia provided coffee makers in the room and unlimited cold, filtered water. Bikes onsite to rent were perfect. We had a fabulous visit!

Would Not Stay Anywhere Else

4.8 on July 08, 2017

Like the title suggests, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Key West. We stayed for three nights in the Alligator Room at Ambrosia. What a treat that was! From the spacious bedroom to the large front porch, it was perfect. Yvette is the perfect hostess, very knowledgeable of the area and patient when guests lock their keys in the room. Breakfast is perfect, there's something for everyone and all of it is delicious. The location could not be better. Duval Street and all the sites are short walks away. We parked our car and didn't move it until we left. We highly recommend Ambrosia.

The Best

5 on June 26, 2017

Everything about Ambrosia is excellent. The staff is wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean, and well appointed. The setting is most relaxing, we had a room with a huge front porch overlooking one of the swimming pools. Breakfast offers something for everyone. We would not stay anywhere else.

Enjoyed our stay

4.4 on June 08, 2017

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay over a long a weekend recently. When we arrived we were greeted by name (Teresa emailed me a few days prior asking when she could expect us) and escorted immediately to our room so we could settle in. We stayed in the Havana Cabana room which is well sized by BnB standards. It should be noted that our room was in a separate building across the street from the main compound. We initially thought we might feel a bit detached from the action, however, we never even considered it an issue. Havana Cabana was probably one of the more privately oriented rooms which we valued more than the activity of the pool area. The property and staff just give off a nice relaxed vibe. We spent a couple afternoons in the pool area and Jacuzzi and love the feeling of seclusion from the neighboring properties and street. Complimentary breakfast was standard bacon, eggs, muffins and bagels type of thing, not gourmet but will fill you up. The Old Town location is perfect, less than two blocks from Duval and one block from a grocery store. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again if we stayed in KW!

First time B&B

4.6 on May 24, 2017

Great place. Stayed in Katie's cottage and had a wonderful time. Have been coming to Key West for twelve years and this is are first time in B&B. Ambrosia has us hooked.

Fantastic deck overlooking the pool. Very private.

Great Place to Stay

4.8 on April 28, 2017

The Ambrosia Key West is a great place to stay in Key West, very close to Duval Street. The staff is very friendly, accommodations very clean and comfortable. The breakfast exceeded our expectations. The only negative thing we can complain about was the weather but the Ambrosia had nothing to do with that with the exception of the use of the umbrellas in the room. Would definitely stay here again.

Long weekend get away.

4.8 on April 15, 2017

Perfect place to stay for a quiet weekend away. Close to Duval street makes exploring downtown a breeze. Some great places to eat right by the room. Very quiet location and helpful staff.

Room 111

4.6 on April 10, 2017

Great private location near the heart of Key West.

Loved this B+B, and we're hotel people!

4.2 on March 29, 2017

We wished we had stayed the entire time at Ambrosia, instead of splitting our mini-getaway in Key West between 2 days here, and 2 days at a local hotel. Ambrosia was so lovely, and we will be back. We loved the grounds, the pool, the well-kept, well appointed bedroom suite. The staff were extremely warm and helpful without being intrusive. Breakfast is served buffet style outside in a little pagoda by the pool where quaint little wrought iron tables and chairs await. There was no forced interaction at breakfast time like some B+B's where they force the guests to all eat and mingle all-together at the same time at a community table. The pool and hot tubs are invitingly dressed with exotic plants. One could just sit and listen to the birds surrounded by lush flora while sipping coffee or a tasty cocktail. What a serendipitous little find! And, it's close to all the action on Duval.

Beautiful Ambrosia Keywest!

5 on March 26, 2017

Loved Ambrosia Keywest! Quiet, beautiful, clean. Everyone was super-nice. Breakfast out by the pool was great!! Definitely recommend it!

Great Experience

4.4 on March 21, 2017

We were only at Ambrosia Key West for one night, but the accommodations were great and the staff extremely pleasant. They called earlier in the afternoon to determine what time we would arrive, and had a parking place reserved in the parking lot for when we arrived. I would recommend.


4.8 on March 10, 2017

Lexi made our stay a real pleasure.All arrangements with our package were as promised . We will definitely stay there on our next trip to the keyd

Beautiful Quaint place with a great location and breakfast

Exceptional B&B

5 on February 08, 2017

We were 2 couples and stayed one night. The place is very clean and the rooms large and very well equiped. We had our rooms in the courtyard facing the pool (great) ! There is parking on site and very well located in the center of attractions (walking distance). The buses and trolleys are passing just 2 blocks from the B&B. Very good breakfast served by the pool or interior as you whish. The personnel is really customer focussed and very pleasent from the time we reserved to the departure. We will definately return to the Ambrosia...

Great Location

5 on January 21, 2017

Our first trip to Key West. Loved the location! We could easily walk to many of the main attractions. Room was spacious and breakfast generous and tasty.

Very nice and great location.

4.8 on November 20, 2016

I would recommend to stay at the Ambrosia. The people are very friendly and helpful. They have different units/houses and we were on the bottom floor of an older home. I would say the only negative is the bathroom needs an over haul but it is a older home and comes with the territory. Otherwise the room was spacious, tall ceilings. The breakfast was wonderful, fresh fruit, etc. The location is great, only a couple blocks from main downtown. I would stay there again.

"A home away from Home"

4.6 on November 19, 2016

This place is quiet and comfy, with pools galore and close enough to all the excitement of Duval St & Mallory Square but, nicely "tucked away" to be able to relax quietly and rest! Staff is always helpful and cordial too! My hats off to Lexi & Iveta for all their assistance!

Unconditional Love!

4.8 on November 02, 2016

My wife and I enjoyed staying at the Ambrosia Key West Inn for our 30th wedding anniversary. We walked everywhere due to the wonderful location a couple blocks off Duval and so close to everything. The staff was accommodating and the accommodations were outstanding. From the great location, 2 pools and hot tub, yummy breakfast and the attention to details, we were so impressed. We look forward to staying at the Ambrosia on our next visit to Key West.

A lovely getaway

4.2 on October 24, 2016

My husband and I love driving down to the keys. We are extremely fortunate to live in South Florida! Ambrosia is a hidden gem, centrally located, an oasis. We stayed in the honeymoon suite; the bed was so comfy and the bathroom had a jacuzzi tub. The hot tub was located right by our room, the pool was across the street in the adjacent building. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I was concerned that hurricane Matthew would ruin our plans, but the staff was so accommodating, offering a refund if necessary. Thankfully we were able to make it down. We are definitely looking forward to returning in February!

Great Stay in the center of it all!

4.4 on October 21, 2016

Ambrosia is very centrally located, convenient to all the restaurants and action, yet quiet and serene. The breakfast includes something for everyone, including early morning coffee with muffins and toast, followed by a full breakfast with eggs, bacon, cereals, yogurt, juices etc. The Alligator Room was spacious, and included a beautiful lanai for lounging outside to watch the world go by. This is a must in KW!

I Will Be Back Many Times Over and So Will You!!

5 on September 22, 2016

This place is absolutely amazing!! First off there are two pools and a private hot tub. The Ambrosia is located in multiple houses. I stayed across the steeet in their Tree Top room. I was on the third floor with my own private outside area and with amazing views of lush tropical Key West. My room had a large bathroom, nice size bedroom and another room with a couch, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. I thought their breakfast was going to be some kind of continental breakfast but it was fresh juices, eggs, bacon, fruit, breads, hot coffee choices and cereals. The staff was really helpful with everything at Ambrosia and were always informative and knowledgeable of Key West and it's attractions. My favorite was the girl at the front desk!! I don't remember her name but she was funny, nice and she even stood in a front row car space for me so I could get better parking. I had a blast and will definitely be back. Ambrosia is within walking distance to everything that Key West has to offer and super close to famous Duval St!! I recommend this bed and breakfast to alll who want to visit Key West and want stay somewhere with that historic Key West fun feel... Enjoy !! Erik Leitzes CornerStone Coastal Properties.

Great location and lovely staff

Very convenient pet friendly B&B. Rooms are dated and need a rehab, but staff is friendly and location is perfect.

August Trip to Key West

4.4 on September 06, 2016

Spur of the moment trip to Key West. The Ambrosia was great ! Location is close to many of the popular areas without being noisy. In turns out that one walks most everywhere in Key West, which is great except in the high heat and humidity of August. We will return, but during a cooler month. The Ambrosia will be our first choice, particularly if we can get the Alligator Room again.

Great location and pet friendly

3.4 on September 05, 2016

B&B is in a great location and management are very friendly. Rooms could use a good refurbishing, but the Inn is still comfortable.

Weekend in Key West

4.4 on August 25, 2016

Quickly scheduled trip for a short get away. We stayed in the Alligator Room (#104). It was very nice with a private patio overlooking the lap pool. The morning breakfast was laid out in the Gazebo at the far end of the pool, which was convenient. Everything exceeded our expectations and we will return, just at a cooler time of the year.

A wonderful experience

5 on August 19, 2016

We absolutely loved our stay at Ambrosia. My fiance loved the vintage styling of the place and surrounding area. Much happier than staying at a hotel.


5 on August 15, 2016

Absolutely wonderful. Thanks for tremendous time.

Honeymoon bliss

5 on August 03, 2016

From check in to check out, simply outstanding. Will stay here again!

The Swiss American Connection - We enjoyed!

5 on July 16, 2016

From the moment we made our reservations the staff was exceptional. Before we arrived they helped and made outstanding suggestions on who we should use for our daily excursions. Our group of 19 adults enjoyed the hospitality of the Ambrosia Family! Every room was beautiful and they enjoyed breakfast at the pool each morning! We all look forward to our return visit!

Birthday Celebration

Friend and family greatly enjoyed Birthday celebration weekend.

The Best Place Ever!

5 on June 02, 2016

Outstanding in every way, will be returning for sure!

Awesome vacation

3.6 on May 08, 2016

We stayed in the Tree Top Suite for a five day vacation. The private deck was amazing and the suite very comfortable. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and diligence of the lovely lady who cleaned every day. We had planned to go out for breakfast several mornings but the buffet and patio was so incredible we never felt a need to go anywhere. We were in a perfect location and could walk everywhere. It was one of most memorable stays (and that includes our trip to Europe). We will definitely return to Key West and Ambrosia. Thank you for everything.

second Visit just as amazing as the first.

4.6 on May 05, 2016

Katie's Cottage was big, roomy and everything was in working order in the room. Property is immaculately maintained. Just a couple of blocks walk to Duval's Historic district. Ate the most amazing fish tacos at a new restaurant just off Duval called Sand Bar Grill.

Great location in one the most beautiful and quite streets of Key West. Nice gardens with 2 pools (one heated). Standard included breakfast. No parking!

Very nice stay

4.4 on March 24, 2016

The location of the Ambrosia is ideal! Just 2 blocks off of Duval, close enough to the action but far enough to escape the noise. My wife and I spent 4 nights here in March and we really enjoyed our stay. We already have reservations for next year. They provide a nice breakfast each morning with plenty of options.

An excellent experience!

4.2 on February 20, 2016

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days, loved every minute of it! The service was wonderful, everyone was beyond helpful and kind. The facilities were great, rooms were clean and comfortable, public areas were well maintained. Only problem was the tiny gazebo space where breakfast was offered, too small a space for the foot traffic resulting in some delays. Otherwise, a wonderful stay!

Great place.

Again a great stay!

4.6 on January 18, 2016

Took my two dogs to Ambrosia and just like the first time, the staff was wonderful, breakfast great and my time there was thoroughly relaxing. My room was perfect for me and the dogs and will be the room I want again when I get a chance to visit again.

Where we'll be staying in Key West from now on...

4.6 on January 05, 2016

We've stayed in Key West on three different occasions at three different bed and breakfasts, but this was by far our favourite. Even the value priced rooms have mini fridges and coffee! Our room was huge! And the price was amazing compared to other b&bs in the area. We will definitely be back.

Stay at Ambrosia Key West

4.8 on November 23, 2015

Everything about our 2 night stay at Ambrosia Key West was wonderful. The room, pools, breakfast, and all of the staff we interacted with were above our expectations. It was a very relaxing and quiet place to stay which we enjoyed very much. Our pet bird who traveled with us was welcomed, and we had no difficulty with parking. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Key West. The location of Ambrosia was also excellent, it was convenient to the activities we wanted to do, and also was very close to a full service grocery store for miscellaneous items we needed. Very nice stay. We will stay here again next time we visit Key West. We are a couple that traveled from Minnesota..

Very nice place to stay!

3.8 on November 09, 2015

We just stayed one night, but it was a very pleasant experience from start to finish.

hidden gem

4.6 on October 16, 2015

The more we go to Key West the more we are surprised and impressed with the quality of the B&Bs. The Ambrosia is a place we will come back too again and again. Its quiet, two nice pools, wonderful ambiance.

Overall value

Great location,would return to this bed and breakfast again and stay in the Amelia suite,good food,great staff.

Great Location in Key West

4.4 on October 04, 2015

The location was within walking distance to EVERYTHING! All staff we encountered were very nice. Daily breakfast was very satisfying. We are not coffee drinkers, but others in our party raved about it. Will definitely book there again.

Had a great time!

5 on September 27, 2015

Key West is extremely expensive all around so this hotel is a great value without compromising on the quality! Going back in November :)

Coming back again in November:)

5 on September 18, 2015

This hotel is a real typical Key West hotel with all the wonderful features available and the customer service was outstanding!

Anniversary stay at Ambrosia Key WestWe had a $2

3.6 on September 16, 2015

We had a $200.00 gift card from our daughter and used it for our 44th anniversary. We had a wonderful stay. The innkeepers at Ambrosia were very nice and helpful.Thank you for everything!

Stay here and you'll thank me!

5 on August 25, 2015

Stayed here on a recommendation from a friend who has been coming to the keys for 15 years. Great room and staff. Place was full and I rarely saw anyone so it felt even more intimate.

Wedding Weekend¿¿

5 on August 22, 2015

My family came from several different states to celebrate a wedding, The Ambrosia was the perfect spot for this. There were 21 of us including 3 children and we had a great stay, thank you thank you to all the staff especially Lexie.

A week in Key West

5 on June 02, 2015

We stayed a week and had a great time, staff was very helpful with everything. Breakfast every morning was a great way to get started everyday. I will stay there the next time we come down.

Great place for people with pups

4.6 on May 24, 2015

We love it here. The staff is great and they have pet friendly rooms. They are a little pricier than our go to pet friendly B&B in old town, but when that place is booked and we have a little extra cash on hand Ambrosia is great.

Terrific place to stay

5 on May 23, 2015

We stayed in the Jungle Room (recommended) with a nearly personal spa just outside the door The breakfast was very enjoyable and the range of food was as you would expect A quiet area of Key West and very close to all amenities The Jungle Room was very spacious and well outfitted

Simply the best

5 on May 21, 2015

We absolutely love Ambrosia. The rooms are all ways clean. The pools and hot tub are perfect. Breakfast is the best and the staff (especially Tina & Tim) are always helpful and super friendly. We tell everyone to stay at Ambrosia. Dennis & Jacqulyn Guthrie

Aussies Ambrosia Stay

5 on May 10, 2015

Great place to stay, we had the Jungle Room, walked out the door, down 3 steps to the spa, even mosquito spray was supplied. There was nothing that we were not happy with. Breakfast we help yourself to. Great selection of food, all set up around the pool. Very clean room and a fantastic collection of coffees and teas in room . Plenty of pods for the coffee and teas and if you needed nothing you only he to ask. Water coolers and cups conveniently placed, ice, and pool towels. We would definetly stay again!, Robert and Geraldine

Beautiful haven in the centre of Key West

4.2 on April 20, 2015

Would definitely stay again. Really lovely place, staff could no do too much for us (apart from the grump man who kept slamming our doors shut). Really pretty and very quiet considering how near it is to the mayhem of Duval Street.

romantic weekend for two

3.8 on April 16, 2015

my wife and I were very pleased with the service and accommodations. The location was very central to the popular destinations yet offers a seclusion and peacefuless that truly make it unique. We hope to return soon!

Cuban Room

3.8 on April 15, 2015

The staff was welcoming and very helpful. The location was perfect as it was within walking distance to all main attractions. I was however, disappointed in the room. We paid full value and expected the room to be in a newer state, it felt old.

Another great experience

4.4 on March 11, 2015

My recent stay at Ambrosia was wonderful... as always. We stayed in the Jungle Room the first night. great room with a private entrance. Loved it. The rest of our stay was in Katie's Cottage as we had friends meeting us down there. Ambrosia is centrally located but just enough off Duval to feel like your own little sanctuary. Thank you Tina and Lexi for another wonderful stay. Hopefully I will be back soon!

Highly recommended!

4.4 on February 25, 2015

We stayed for one night in the Treetop Suite - a perfect secret hideway gem up in the treetops! Quiet and calm, you get your own peace. Just lovely! The jacuzzi just down the stairs is a perfect spot to unwind in the evening. The breakfast was good and we could eat it at our own terrace. Ambrosia is really nice, cozy and romantic!

Wonderful Stay

5 on February 22, 2015

We loved our stay at the Ambrosia. Quiet neighborhood but short, convenient walking distance to Duval ST. Our room was amazing and so cozy! The staff was so courteous and helpful. Great breakfast. Everything was perfect! Will definitely be staying again!


5 on February 02, 2015

Excellent Bed & Breakfast in Key West. Breakfast bar is better than most.

Kind and personable hosts

4.6 on January 01, 2015

The hosts provided outstanding customer service from the second we arrived - finding parking for our car, giving us a map of the area and explaining how we could best enjoy our afternoon and following morning in Key West. They even looked after our luggage and vehicle after check-out so we could go on a boat excursion in the afternoon. The suite was luxurious, quiet, private, and very enjoyable. Location was easy walking distance from everything we wanted to see. They even had friendly cats on site - always a bonus for us cat lovers!

Fantastic service, everything else about average

3.6 on November 19, 2014

This is a fantastic place to stay as far as the service is concerned. Extremely courteous personnel, prompt attention to issues, and close to Duval Street. I would say it's a bit expensive for what you get concerning room size and amenities. Also, children are allowed here so it can get noisy if there is a loud child. Overall, I would recommend this location, but I will personally likely look to another place next time I go to try some variety.

Awesome Stay

5 on October 31, 2014

Ambrosia is secluded and quiet, but just steps away from Duval Street. Our room was #107, pool front with chairs outside the room, plus lounge chairs for the pool. The spa pool was also just outside the room and was wonderful. The room was clean and neat, offered a refrig, keruig coffee maker, desk and chair. Free Wifi. The bathroom was spacious with a large closet. The staff was friendly and provided a terrific breakfast. I would go back in a minute.

excellent location and service.

4.8 on October 24, 2014

Stayed for one night in the honeymoon suite and it was amazing. Excellent service, even though it was a last minute reservation. Highly recommended. Thank you for the amazing memories.

A charming B and B

3.0 on August 23, 2014

A charming B and B set in lovey planted gardens, and moments away from the hub of key west. Our stay was comfortable and met our expectations. The buffet breakfast was great and you had a wide choice. However, our room was a little disappointing especially the heavy scaled shower which was very off putting. I would recommend anyone to stay here but pled that the owners spend a little more time making sure the room cleaning is as high as the rest of the service they provide.

I was disappointed by this B and B because the reception wasn't very good, the women didn't smile. Nobody didn't care about our feelings during the stay The shower and the w.c didn't work very well and you could see some insects on the floor during the night and that for 225 bucks a night

Very pleasant stay

Only two blocks from the night life when you return after all the activity on Duval Street you have entered a different world with all the quiet comfort of this hidden gem.

One of the best hotels

One of the best hotels I've stayed in. Friendly staff, clean rooms, close to everything. Great hotel!

Friendly, Clean, and Exceeded my Expectations

5 on July 02, 2014

This was my first visit to Key West, and so I reserved a room here just based on an internet search. Usually this type of risk leaves me disappointed. But, not this time. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. Best customer service I have received in a long time. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was wonderful and even included some hot items. I will be staying there next time I travel to Key West. I highly recommend Ambrosia Key West.

Perfect location in Key West

Great B&B. Breakfast ok with great coffee. Enjoyed our stay - only downside our room door was left open all day by the cleaning lady - a bit concerning when no safe/safety deposit.

Perfect place to stay in the keys!

Ambrosia was just perfect . Far enough off of Duval but close enough too. Clean , quite, comfortable rooms .

Key West get away

The property is lovely and in a great location. You can walk to everything. It was quiet and friendly staff. My room was across the street and up stairs and the room was quite small for the price, although the bathroom was as large as the room. I would have preferred to have been ground level and near the pool or with a private patio as many of the rooms had.

Good location & great staff

4.0 on October 28, 2013

The staff were very accommodating- they arranged to have bikes delivered & even picked up, gave good maps & directions, etc.. Even the cleaning people were friendly. It was nice to have a kureig coffee maker, fridge & microwave in the room. The grocery store was just 2 blocks away. The morning breakfast was good. The location was also convenient. My only complaint was the smoking policy. Guests were allowed to smoke outside their rooms which also meant at the breakfast area & pool area. One man was a chain smoker!!I We therefore left the small pool area- couldn't escape it. We also retreated back to out rooms immediately after breakfast. It can still be offensive even if you are outside!! Yuck! This would be the only reason I may find another place next time.

This was our first time in Key West and the staff was helpful in recommending places to see and how to get there. I felt very comfortable and was surprised at the privacy created in the different areas. Even in the middle of downtown you felt a sense of privacy.

Best Place in all of Key West!

Grounds are beautiful, love that it's pet friendly! Staff is awesome! And you can't beat the location. The free full breakfast is the icing on the cake!

Excellent Location

Our stay at the Ambrosia was excellent. Lexi was accomadating and very heplful. Ambrosia is only a couple blocks from all the hustle & bustle but far enough that you hear any of the noise from Duval St. Loved here so much we have already made reservations for next year. Thank you Lexi.

Lovely place!

We were there for just 1 night and we stayed at the honeymoon suite. I was worried about the parking area for the car, but it was easy to find in the street with their help. Everything was perfect, the room, the breakfast at the beautiful garden, the silent place at night and the restaurante they recommended us to have dinner. Thanks Jenny and colleagues for all the attention.

Lovely place to stay....

I was exceptionally pleased by the hot tub and deck area. How nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors in such a relaxing and beautiful atmosphere. :)

A week-end at Ambrosia

Enjoyed this facility, just wished I had more time to enjoy it. Recommend it for a short or a long stay. Great property, great location, walking distance to everything.

First Timer

I just returned from my stay in the Pool Suite: The Alligator, it was magnificient! It was my first time in a bed and breakfast inn. The best way to describe The Ambroisa is to say that if you were in a coma for months and then woke up you would know that you were in the Florida Keys. It is so tropical and elegant. It is quiet and restful...very pet friendly for my Yorkie. The staff does a wonderful job to help with information and directions. The morning breakfast in the gazebo was first rate...all decorated in a tropical theme. The room was comfortable and gorgeous! I can not wait to go return for another visit.

Great Fun

We stayed for a week and should have stayed longer. Could not have been a better place to stay - staff great - rooms great. Close to all the action in Key West but far enough to be quiet. No need for a car.

A divine stay at Ambrosia Key West

5 on March 07, 2010

My boyfriend & I found Ambrosia on-line (Frommer pick)! Within first moment of speaking with Tina, we knew we'd found the place to stay in Key West. The graciousness & professionalism that was extended during phone conversation assured us that we'd found a gem. The property is a class act, from the accomodations to the breakfast; (yum). We cannot wait to go back again and again. THANK YOU for being the best hosts we've found in a long time. Respectfully, David & Lainie Krantz.

Tropical Paradise

5 on November 21, 2009

My husband and I stayed 3 nights here and LOVED every minute. Christina and the other ladies were so nice. The pool area was a tropical paradise. A breakfast buffet was served every morning poolside from the gazebo. We loved the breakfast! It was the best out of the 7 b&bs we stayed in during our trip. Fruits, pastries, sausage, eggs, toast, muffins, bagels, yougart, cereal, and more! We stayed in a town house that had everything we could need! Great location. 5 minute walk to Duval Street.

wonderful experience

5 on August 18, 2009

The innkeeper went out of her way to work with our travel and dining plans. The room was spacious and the grounds were beautiful. I would definetly recommend it to guests staying at my B&B. Tina was especially awsome.

I'm booking again!

4.6 on March 15, 2009

My hubby & I stayed here in December. Our experience WAS AWESOME! Our room and the grounds were kept very clean & the breakfast was perfect. The staff was very in helpful in trying to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Right now, we're trying to figure out what days in 2009 we'll be coming down to KW so we can make are reservations to come back. CAN'T WAIT :-)

Super pet friendly

4.8 on January 09, 2009

Superb pet friendly B&B. Staff very in tune with the needs of pet owners. Maid service will accomodate to dog owners. Owner of B&B even offered to walk our dog! Breakfasts were great; rooms and grounds beautiful tropical paradise. Entire town of Key West is pet friendly. You can bring your dog everywhere including some museums and plenty restaurants. We will certainly be returning again!

Perfect Key West stay!

4.2 on December 27, 2008

I have never written a review before and must admit that I'm a bit lazy when it comes to that, be it a good or bad experiance. But I must say that this B&B is one of the best I have ever been to, including my stay in several B&B's in Europe. Very accomodating staff, excellent hospitality, great location and very close to Duval St., more than expected for breakfast and superb price for the area and what it has to offer. The hotel offers different types of rooms, all with great Key West style. Fold out couch/bed was a bit uncomfortable in roopm #2 but that is all I have to say that is negative about this place. A must for any stay in Key West!!!!

We Love Ambrosia House!!!

4.0 on December 06, 2007

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay in late October 2007. The staff went above and beyond to help us with everything we needed. Close to everything and yet just far enough away for quiet relaxation. Rooms are bright and beautiful. Breakfast was fresh, delicious, spectacular, poolside dinning, fresh fruit, pastries... We will be back!


3.6 on June 30, 2007

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in August of 2006. The room we originally reserved was not available, so they gave us a larger more expensive room. However, this room did not have a jacuzzi which is why we originally wanted the honeymoon suite. The room was nice, service was good, the breakfast was a simple continental breakfast which seems to be the standard in key west. The pools and outside area were clean. There was off street parking.


5 on April 30, 2007

We stayed here November 2006. The place is beautiful, very clean and a great breakfast was provided. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Great Honeymoon Expierence

4.8 on April 13, 2007

Hi my name is Amanda. My husband Joey and I stayed at the Ambrosia last June for our Honeymoon. The staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. We will for sure be comming back to stay in the future!!! Keep up the good work!
