Great Get-A-Way!

4.0 on June 02, 2012

Me and my boyfriend spent a 3 day weekend at the Heron House in Key West and LOVE IT!!! We had a room right off the pool area with a private deck, The room was lovely, comfortable and clean. The surronding gardens were charming which made you think you were miles away from civilization, but just beyond the fromt entrance was Key West with so much to do. The staff was always available to help but never in your way. We enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese happy hour and the breakfast had a lot to chose from. As much as I want to keep this my private get-a-way and tell everyone not to go...we WILL be going back again and we HIGHLY recommend it!

Great find!

My husband and I stayed here last year with friends. We happen to be in Ft. Lauderdale and wanted to come down to stay for one night. Most places want you to stay at least three including The Heron House. However, they had availability and bent the rules to accomodate all of us. Even though it was a very short stay it was well worth it and the staff was awesome. We are looking to come early 2012 and I want to come back here. It's close enough to Duval Street but secluded enough for a nice relaxing evening. Pricing was reasonable for the quality and comfort received. Well done Heron House!

Loved It

1 block from Duval and just a few short blocks to Mallory Square, the Heron House is a perfect location; close enough to all the happenings, but far enough away to get away from the hustle bustle. This place is perfect for a relaxing getaway...from the mature landscaping to the afternoon wine and cheese, we could not have asked for a place to better suit our needs. The staff was great as well. We will definitely go back to the Heron House.

Good value for money

Nice accommodations, very close to Duval - so easy access to most activities in Key West. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Good breakfast with granola, cereal, pastry, breads, and a hot item each morning. Would stay here again on a return visit.

What a lovely surprise
