We stayed at the Avalon during February for 4 nights. Our room was delightful, plenty of space and extremely clean. The staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The small dipping pool was fine after a busy day sightseeing. As many have already said the Avalon is perfectly positioned at the south end of Duval Street and... More

We really liked it here. And we would like to come back. And recommende to friends. The pillows were a bit big and there was a kind of old smell in the room, but as a total it was charming. The location is great. Close to Beach and everything but away from det most noisy part of Duval street.

Thank you so much for your stay with us, and for taking the time to review us online. I am so pleased to hear you would stay with us again, and we look forward to accommodating you again. We just put new pillows in the rooms so maybe that was why they seemed big. I will certainly check into the... More

Great little B&B. Loved sitting on the front porch for breakfast watching Duval street bustle. Quiet but still close enough to everything. We parked the car and walked everywhere. Had a wonderful time! Thanks

Wow, what a fantastic Bed and Breakfast. After staying for a few nights at the Atlantis House and being totally blown away, we didn't know what to expect, but we found the Avalon to be a stunning, meticulously cared-for step back in Key West history with amazing amenities and incredible customer service. While a bit pricey, it was worth every... More

this is a warm and welcoming spot at the quiet end of duval street. it is near the sourthernmost motel (which actually wraps around the b&b). it is a still a relative easy walk over to where all the restaurants and bars are, but allows for some escape from all the action for a good nights rest. we stayed here...

Hotel has a great location just steps from Southernmost point. You can feel superb atmosphere of Key West there. Hotel was wonderfully decorated for Christmas time! Night illumination attracted a lot of tourist to make a photo.

We could only stay one night in Key West but by staying at the Avalon we had the nicest possible stay for such a short time and it was mainly due to the comfort and proximity of the B&B to the main attractions of Key West and to the friendliness of Yvonne and her suggestions of where to go.

A strange blend of homeliness and self service...
