Grand guesthouse
This was a lovely little find. Had that cosy feel about it. Breakfast was a delight and the little nook to sit an eat was really nice. Help yourself to tea coffee etc all day and a delightful happy hour from 4-5 each day. Room was very compact but everything you would want in a room.

Key Wests Best
This hotel was everything and more than we expected, it has the charm of the natural Key West. We were in room 1 and had our own veranda.the staff were friendly especially the manager John, he told us about local restuarants that were excellent. The hotel is in a quiet area ,but yet so close to Duval Street and everything, the free breakfast and happy hour with free beer and sangria was a nice touch. Cannot fault this place and if we ever return ,will definitely stay here again

Refuse to accomodate the disabled, steer clear!
It was ok until we were charged $150 because I twice smoked OUTSIDE on the patio. I have MS, they have no railings on their steps & I was unable to get to their small smoking area. The only choice available to me. Smoking OUTSIDE!! Also, we had a service dog for which the required proof, his service dog credentials! Absolutely horrible situation that is blatantly violationt of the Americans With Disabilities Act. They refused to budge on their position because I PHYSICALLY couldn't get to their specified location. Also that location was covered in foliage preventing any breeze & with the Dengue Fever cases happening made me uncomfortable. Being I have a Chronic Progressive illness, I don't need complications. Unfortunately today I was forced to report them for said violations. I will also be filing a civil suit to regain money taken in this "money grabbing" case. They should be ashamed of themselves, they only want the money & care not for the accomodation of the disabled. Stay away from this place!

Clean & Quiet
The Grand Guesthouse was the perfect quiet location for exploring what Key West has to offer. Bikes are available to rent (best thing to do if you want to check out most of Key West). We stayed upstairs in room 7. Nice and tucked away in the corner of the guesthouse. It had a clean and simple separate dining/seating area with fridge (kept our drinks super cold) and microwave. The queen bedroom/bathroom is perfect size for 2. Nice and updated bathroom. The A/C was super cold and quiet. Breakfast in the morning was perfect. The automatic coffee maker grinds a good cup of coffee. They had a nice spread of fresh fruits, juice, milk, cereals, bagels and pastries. The owners are a nice friendly couple and were available if needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful even when I locked myself out of my room the first 10 minutes I was there. Definitely a great place to stay.

Our One Night Break
We were there the day before COVID-19 Keys shut down. The staff was great and pointed out all the amenities. The room was very nice but the bed was small for a guy like me at 6'2".

A Grand stay
Stayed at this cozy, convenient 10 room guest house for a weekend Key West wedding celebration...although a bit of "sticker shocked" when reserving, quickly came to know it was a relative good value in this Florida tourist destination hot spot (especially during "high season"). The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and smartly appointed/ fresh, that you'd have thought they had just opened. Parking in front only allows for 6 vehicles, but ample over-flow parking is less than a block away. John, the manager, checked us in upon arrival and was most friendly and informative. Daily Continental breakfast in the breezeway was more than adequate to start the day off right...24 hour coffee was an added plus. Ignore the "sketchy-appearing" neighborhood on initial arrival as, after all, just part & parcel of the normal Key West overall laid back landscape (and experience). Staff is more than helpful recommending plenty tourist things to see, do and dine. Bottom line, the Grand Guesthouse is a great place to hang your hat when exploring Key West. note1: we really appreciated their quiet, no-disruptive, if you're the type who likes to get drunk/party/rowdy, this would Not be a good fit for you. note2: give Jose's Latin Food restaurant nearby on Truman a try if you like authentic Nicaraguan/Latin food...again, ignore the neighbors and "hole-in-the-wall" appearance...the staff was friendly and the food was Fresh & tasty. A local Latin favorite.
