“Quaint Key West style B&B/Great location”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

We stayed in room #16 by the small pool for two nights. It was very nice and clean with a comfortable king size bed. The air conditioning worked well. Since the room faces the pool, it was very quiet at night. The B&B is on the quieter end of Duval. We never moved our car from the parking area next to the B&B. Everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. The breakfast consisted of two kinds of cereal, milk, orange juice, coffee, tea, hard boiled eggs, bread, English muffins, bagels, peanut butter, pastry, and fruit. Everything was fresh and tasty. We were very pleased with Duval Gardens and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 16 is off the side of the B&B away from any streets. It has double doors that open onto th...

The location was great, within walking distance to either side of Key West along Duval street. Parking was limited. Room was very nice, a bit small for the price, very clean and well kept. Had everything you might need except a corkscrew, however, the front desk staff had one at hand. We had a poolside room but the walls were very thin (we could hear the neighbors yelling at each other most of our first night). Pool was attractive but far too warm to be refreshing in the Florida weather.

Front verandah was quite lovely in the morning for breakfast and nice, relaxing in the evening. However, in the mornings it was sometimes difficult to find a seat for the breakfast (boiled eggs, honeydew melon and cantalope, bread and bagles, coffee cake, cereal, juices and coffee, yogurt, etc...). For the price they could purchase a new toaster as one side was broken.

The A/C in the room was loud and very difficult to regulate the temperature. Each room had it's own outside entrance despite being a B&B which made it seem more private.

Room Tip: If arriving with a car, get there early for a parking spot.

I arrived late in the evening when the office was closed. No problems, I just parked my car just outside the hotel (30min parking) and brought my luggage up to the front where I found my key. My room had view over the pool side and was the cutest room I have seen! Loved it! And even if the hotel is located on Duval Street it was not much noise from the street. Great! In the morning I expected an easy breakfast with a toast and some coffee. But the breakfast was awesome! I got cereals, fresh cut fruits, orange juice, some different cakes, bread, bagels, cream cheese, marmalades, tea and coffee. After that I could check in to the very nice lady at the office. During my stay she gave me great advices and ideas what to do and where to see the nice sunset and sunrise. So friendly!
In the morning I took a run and saw the sunrise and then I took a swim in the pool, small pool but warm! And then time for breakfast and this breakfast was as good as yesterday's. They had wifi which is a big plus! Since I traveled alone it was a bit expensive but the entire experience of Key West was so good, so it was worth it! If I get back to Key West I will stay at Duval Gardens again, for sure!

This was my first time to Key West AND my first time in a B&B. It was wonderful! Duval Gardens is very centrally located as far as attractions and the beach go. It's on Duval St. but far enough away from the total craziness. We were there for a family wedding, and had people from under 1 years old to over 80 years old. Everyone had a great time. The rooms were quite spacious (not that we spent much time in them), the breakfast on the porch just lovely, and everything was clean (my biggest pet peeve when staying away from home!). I can't wait to stay at the Duval Gardens again!

My friend and I stayed here in August 2011 and loved it. It was relaxed and friendly. We stayed in the room with two beds and loved the homely feel of the cosey decor and sitting out on the porch to enjoy a tasty breakfast.

The B&B has a pool for a dip, the rooms were clean and the staff super friendly. It's in a great location - on Duval Street but a quick walk away from the noise and chaos when you're ready to rest your head.

Duval Gardens really added to our Key West trip, it was quaint and pretty but not over romantic for us as friends and not a couple. We would definitely recommend it to all.
