La Pensione Inn B&B

About

La Pensione, a Key West Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of Old Town Key West and is a favorite Guesthouse for many of our repeat clients. Key West, the southernmost point in the continental United States, is an oasis like no other. Set at the end of the Florida's archipelago, Key West's tropical landscape is dotted with stately frame residences, trimmed with scrolls of gingerbread. The island is a visual feast with the mélange of Bahamian, New England and Latin influences that characterize it's famed century-old architecture. La Pensione, a grand Classic Revival mansion, dates from Key West's Victorian Age. Built in 1891 as the private residence of Walter S. Lightbourn, the Vice-President of the Cortez Cigar Company, the elegant 2 1/2 story home on Rocky Road, (later Division Street and still later Truman Avenue), stands today as a tribute to the island's vast cigar making empire. Sun lovers will enjoy the peaceful seclusion of the inn's sparkling pool and lounge deck. Or when you're yearning for a little excitement, Key West's legendary Duval Street is just steps away.

Stayed here for two nights, and the experience could not have been better. The staff went out of its way to help us with any request we had.

Key West Stay

4.6 on May 08, 2017

Staff was very friendly and made us feel welcomed. Staff provided great information on restaurants and night life. The location was a short walk from Duval Street: close enough to walk to but far enough away so you did not get the noise. La Pensione was clean and we found no issues during our stay. We would stay there again.

This was our second time staying here. It is a beautiful home! Roland goes the extra mile, making sure your cooler has ice, straightening up your room. He even hung up cloths that were lying on the chair!! It is a bit of a walk to "main attractions", but well worth it! The pool is a nice bonus after a long day walking. It is a bit noisey right on Truman St, but you are in Key West for god sakes!!!! Love it & will be back next year!!


Overall Great Experience

3.4 on February 24, 2017

We loved staying at La Pensione Inn. It was in a great location, just a few blocks from Duval Street and close to all the attractions. This old Victorian house was just charming and the staff was very helpful with all our questions. Our room on the second floor was spacious and had everything we needed. The breakfast was perfect with just the right amount of options. No need for a huge breakfast when you have so many wonderful dining options in Key West. The only thing I would comment on is that the towels, although provided clean daily, did not smell clean. I would invest in a better laundry option.


Great place

This is a great little B and B. The staff is friendly and always available. The location is perfect, a short walk to Duval but quite at night. This place has become winter getaway must have.
