Perfect R&R

My husband and I loved the accommodations and location of this wonderful B&B. This was our first experience with a B&B and I must say, it more than exceeded our expectations. So glad we found this place! Benny and Tammy

Honeymoon Getaway

5 on August 14, 2017

My husband and I came across this gem on-line while searching for nearby honeymoon destinations. Boy are we thrilled with The Avalon Bed and Breakfast!!! We instantly loved the charm and close proximity to activities! We stayed in Room 29, the Honeymoon Cottage. It was our own private abode, complete with a charming front porch! The hotel is conveniently located right on Duval Street, the Main Street in town. We walked almost everywhere...restaurants, shops, and attractions. As soon as we checked in, we were made to feel right at home. The staff was exceptional, very helpful and extremely friendly. A light breakfast was served each morning on the spacious front porch. Every afternoon there were fresh baked cookies and a cold beverage to tide you over until dinner., Our only complaint about The Avalon is that our vacation went by far too quickly!!! We highly recommend The Avalon. You won't be disappointed. We cannot wait to return!!!

Avalon- Great Choice!

Our first time in Key West exceeded our expectations. The Avalon was The Best place to stay! The B & B was very clean, staff was very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the two porches late at night relaxing Location is a real plus as it's on the quieter end of Duval Street. Will come back in winter and stay here again! Breakfast was perfect. Something for everyone. Afternoon tea and cookies was delight!

Weekend in Key West

4.6 on August 05, 2017

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Avalon B&B. Although the room was small, it was quite adequate and very clean which is important to us. We also liked the fact that there is no carpeting as I always find that yucky in hotels. The place was quiet so one could sleep at night. Eric, at the front desk, was friendly and very helpful in giving us information on restaurants, activities, etc. The location is perfect!!

Beautiful romantic getaway

Excellent Experience

The experience during our stay at the Avalon Bed & Breakfast was absolutely incredible. The hospitality, amenities, service and atmosphere were excellent. The location was perfect being within walking distance of the beach in one direction and downtown the other direction. The food served for breakfast daily offered a great variety of selections. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of not only the facility but also the helping hands that serviced our room each day. We will highly recommend Avalon to others and look forward to staying again during our next visit to Key West. Thank you for making our time in Florida so memorable.

Perfect Escape

Comfy beds, elegant furnishings, breakfast on the porch, tea and cookies in the afternoon. Located at the quieter end of Duval, within walking distance to South Beach and Cafe, the Southernmost Point, the Butterfly Conservatory and the trolley stop. Car and bike rental conveniently located across the street. Convenience store right around the corner. We loved it and can't wait to visit again!
