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.

Best place to stay!

We loved every second of our stay. The staff is phenomenal. So friendly and helpful! The breakfast was really good and felt like you were eating at home and not a hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pool area is well maintained and water was amazing. The other accommodations like coolers, ice, towels, etc were incredible to have available. I loved everything about this place. Will definitely be staying again!!


Nice B&B

Decent value. Advertised as "TV free", but there is one at the breakfast table. (I am a rare TV hater.) The building is old and therefore not very soundproof in the front. So there are lots of street noises if you get a front room. But the balcony was really nice to sit out on so it was a trade off. Light sleepers won't sleep well here. Pool is small but nice. Staff were over the top friendly. Specifically, Nick was great. I'd stay again.


Love this Place!!

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.

Had a great stay in Key West with 2 nights at La Pensione Inn. We wanted to stay within walking distance of the "action", but weren't looking to take out a second mortgage to do so. This Inn hit the sweet spot for us. We weren't looking for luxurious accommodations ($1000/night), but we definitely have a certain level of expectations. We were not disappointed here, and would definitely stay again if we were ever to return. Nick was surprisingly hospitable, and definitely had a lot to do with making the stay a positive one. He was very knowledgeable, and seemed genuinely interested in helping make the most of our stay in Key West, and at the Inn.
