    Exceptional 10.0
    I;d stay here again
    Location was excellent, only a block off the main drag (Duvall) yet quiet. The room was spacious and modern (even better than as pictured). The continental breakfast was more than adequate. And the pool was "so-so" - which actually is about average for close-in B&Bs in Key West. There was also an ice machine and beverage vending machine on property. There was a decent sized off street parking lot, but note that if used, there will be a $21 additional fee added to your bill. Overall a very good stay.
