We stayed at La Pensione for a few nights but it was slightly disappointing when we got there. Based on the photos online we thought the room would be a little bigger with more natural lighting.The service was very good however because we mentioned that our room smelled very musty (I think due to the carpeting) and right away was...

For those who like B&Bs this historic home with breakfast included, this may suit you to a Tee. If you really like large chain hotels though, stay somewhere else. The home is lovely with big verandahs. Our room gave out onto one (where the ash trays were not emptied during the time we were there - two nights). The furniture...

We recently spent a night here during our stay in Key West. Older neat looking house. Polite and friendly. We were checked in promptly and then we drug our bags up a long steep staircase to our second floor room. Large sparsely furnished room and nothing matched. No closet to hang things; just a small wire shelf that you can...

If you're looking for an upscale stay this is not your place. But if having a friendly, clean, comfortable and convenient home away from home is what you want, you found it! The staff (everyone!) could not have been more friendly and helpful; the rooms were immaculately prepared each day; the bed was comfortable and the small private pool area...

The location was good as was the breakfast HOWEVER....... We travel often and are very private people. We always put the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door even when we go out. The house keeper completely disregarded the sign, came into our room and touched ALL OF OUR THINGS!!! He rearranged all of our personal items in the bathroom...

I read the good reviews and not the bad - only the good are highlighted on Expedia, Yelp and tripadvisor. La Pensione is not a luxury inn. It is not an a comfortable charming inn. It is an economy, one star bed and breakfast. The rooms are dated and tired. The furnishings are cheap, mismatched and there is no decor...

We were welcomed as soon as we got in and made to feel right at home. It has a nice wrap around porch and a very cute feeling. Our room was very large but I was disappointed with having just a shower and no tub in our bathroom. I know it's an old home and has been slightly remodeled, but...

We loved our stay. The pool is awesome. They have bike rentals on property. Light breakfast is included and tons of hot water. The best surprise of our stay was Roland the groundskeeper/housekeeper. Incredibly friendly and so thoughtful with cleaning our room. He folded clean clothes, put dirty clothes in a laundry bag, put our change in a zip lock...

A friend and I spent five nights at La Pensione. Very pleasant surroundings, good clean room. Good location. Breakfast was the typical continental breakfast but consisted for homemade waffles and fresh fruit and was sufficient to carry us through the day until dinner. Brandon, Nick, Janie, and Roland were courteous and helpful and knowledgeable on restaurants and entertainment. Location is...

My wife and I stayed there this past weekend. We had an enjoyable time. We found the hotel and room (#5) clean and the staff, particularly Brandon, more than helpful. Yes, there were no TVs or phones and the pool was small, but who really needs them anyway. Heck, You're in Key West folks, just how much time do you...
