A great place to stay. The staff are so friendly and very accommodating - simply amazing! The breakfast is plentiful, the place is clean and the pool & Jacuzzi are wonderful! Highly recommend this guest house. Just the perfect get a way. Small but just enough. Only about 5 blocks to Duval St.

Pretty sure that this was our 20th (!) consecutive stay at Alexander's, so we may be just a little bit biased. But trust me when I say that there is no finer accommodation in Key West, especially for the LGBT community, than Alexander's. No matter what room you select (and as longtime visitors who generally stay 10 days or more),...

This is our second time staying at Alexander's and our friends' first time. We were quite happy again and our friends were impressed with their experience there.

It was a joy to return to the Guesthouse - and be greeted by name and a genuine smile by every front desk "friend" each time we saw one of them. Since they are responsible for the entire guest house we saw them every where. The ambience of Alexander's is enhanced by the amazingly loyal and interesting guests. At breakfast...
