Speakeasy Inn

1117 Duval St , Key West, 33040 USA (Show map)

About

The Speakeasy Inn is a landmark building located in the Boutique and Gallery District of Duval Street where you can shop, walk two blocks to the beach or enjoy a short stroll to world-famous Sunset Celebrations in Mallory Square! This landmark's recent renovation has preserved the original 19th century spirit of Old Town Key West. The decor in these spacious and airy suites is tropical and features hand-crafted queen beds and tables made from original 1876 pine recovered from our recent renovation. It has been restored to perfection, just for your pleasure. Each one, two or three bedroom unit has a feeling of true Key West ambiance. You'll find collectibles taken from treasure hunts on our tropical island paradise and Havana, Cuba. Guests who require special consideration will find "accessible" units available. Amenities include kitchenettes equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster, private bathrooms, HD T.V., free WiFi and outdoor seating areas. We also offer a complimentary continental breakfast, free samples of our famous Painkiller cocktail and discounts on drinks at the Rum Bar! The Speakeasy Inn was the home of Raul Vaquez, who was a cigar selector at the Gato cigar factory. Raul's true passion was rum-running between Key West and Cuba. It's in that spirit that our lobby features the Rum Bar open daily from 11am to 12am (or later).

Fun B&B

Had a very nice stay at the Speakeasy. Room and breakfast were great. Perfect location. Best of all is the Rum Bar - both the atmosphere and the employees. We'll be back!


Great Place

Best place to stay on Duval

This was the second time we had stayed here. We have been nothing but satisfied. Check in is easy. The staff is pleasant. The room we had was super clean. With each stay you get a free pain killer to start off your stay. We highly recommend on getting a hurricane and goombay smash, find a table out front, enjoy the sun and people passing by. Our room was quite at night and was pleasing to hear roosters in the morning. The beds are very comfortable. They have a breakfast as well but we had other plans. We recommend this place to any adults and can’t wait for the next time.


Outstanding

The staff was amazing and helped with anything we needed. When one room was a little loud the staff stepped in and talked with them. The room was amazing and very clean. We had a wonderful stay and will be booking to stay there again in the near future.


Awesome stay

It was in a great location and walked to most locations. Tonya, the property manager, was amazing! She helped us with recommendations for things to do and places to eat (some of which we ate at multiple times during our stay). The room was clean and we loved the balcony. It is a rum bar and so they did have live music. Sometimes it was a bit loud in the late evening but overall didn't bother us or would prevent us from staying with them again. The complimentary continental breakfast was a nice touch.


Great Stay

Very close to South Beach. Good singer in the afternoons. Breakfast was good too.


Perfect Location, We will be Back!

We had 3A, a wonderful little patio entrance off the left side, facing the building. It has a bedroom section, living room and bath with shower. It was clean, pleasant, and had a coffee maker---with coffee refreshed each day. It was surprisingly quiet, being close to the street. The free continental breakfast was quite extensive, even with boiled eggs and excellent fruit. We particularly liked the friendliness, "Captain", the cat, a few of the chickens, and the great convenience either to the South or to the North. We were able to walk almost everywhere. And the cost was about half what we would pay for a hotel room. We will be back.


Our Speakeasy Inn Experience

4.0 on February 24, 2018

We cannot say enough about our stay. It was outstanding in every aspect of rating a vacation resort. The room and surrounding environment was warm and comfortable. Service was outstanding and continental breakfast was great. Everything we were interested in seeing was either a short walk to or boarding a bus with scheduled stops to various entertainment spots. Only 2 blocks from South Beach. We highly recommend this resort. Fran and Anne (2/4/18 to 2/8/18)

We couldn't be happier with staying at The Speakeasy Inn. EVERYTHING about our stay made our trip as enjoyable as possible - Friendly staff, beautiful rooms with cleaning service every day, perfect location, breakfast every morning, with the awesome rum bar attached. We will definitely be back!

The room was very nice. Comfortable bed. Pillows were hard, though. Fridge was stocked with water each day. Breakfast was really good. Fresh and well stocked. Nice to be able to enjoy sitting on balcony and people watching.
