    Albury Court - Good value near the Harbor

    by

    On our recent trip to Key West we had a lot of trouble finding a hotel near downtown for under $200 a night, until we discovered the Albury Court Inn, one of four quaint hotel operated by a small company called Historic Key West Inns. I booked the room on their website, then arrived around 3pm. Our first and only problem with the inn was parking... we drove around the block several times before squeezing into a seemingly illegal dirt spot next to one part of the hotel. When we checked in to the hotel the odd front desk clerk said the best place to park was in those very same dirt spots across the front desk.

    When we checked in we were given a small but modern room next to the small swimming pool. The very inexpensive $120 room had a queen-sized bed, a small flat-screen TV, a refrigerator, and free wi-fi.

    From the hotel, we had about a 10-minute walk through a quiet neighborhood to Duval Street, but there are a few bars and restaurants located within a block or two, including numerous options at the harbor. This is a very nice hotel, with good room rates, in a quiet, but easily accessible part of Key West.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is very unique because its 38 rooms are spread out in three or four buildings, some of which appear to be historic homes. Also, one of the bigger buildings is located across the street from the others, so the pool is on one side of Eaton St, while the ice machine is on the other side.

    Directions: Located in a residential neighborhood at the corner of Eaton and Frances Streets in Old Town.

    Historic Key West Inns

    by

    I recommend staying at any of the seven historic inns. I stayed at albury court. I stayed for 2 night and highly recommend staying in an inn because you feel like you are staying in a house instead of a hotel in a historic neighborhood. The rooms come with a fire place (not that you will use it in Key West) and a plasma screen tv and clear refrigirator. You also recieve spa towels to use at the pool and high quality soap (not the cheap stuff) in your room. I would recommend this inn to people traveling alone or couples, but not for families because the rooms are too small for more than two people so I would advise not bringing too much luggage . The inns are also closer in to the major tourist attractions so you will not need a car to travel around, but if you drive in, the inns do not offer parking, but you can find free parking on the street.

    Unique Quality: The shower was very large and the location was about four blocks from Duval street which is the main street in Key West. They offer a basic breakfast for free by the pool which has a nice waterfall.

    Directions: In old town key west on the corner of Eaton Street and Frances Street

More about Albury Court

Good find!

by TripAdvisor Member kettlebombs

After a LOT of comparing and study, we chose Albury Court because it was close to the ferry terminal, the Harborwalk and Duval Street. We took the KeyWest Express ferry into town from Ft. Myers beach and spent a great three days sans car!

Albury Court's staff was very nice and friendly. Our room was nicely decorated and outfitted. The bathroom toiletries were top notch.

The room was somewhat small (Queen Std.), but the bathroom was very comfortable. Very clean and very quiet too!

We will definitely stay at this location for each upcoming visit to Key West.

Hidden Treasure

by TripAdvisor Member kerrykim

We stayed at Albury Court 1/31 - 2/10/2008 and absolutely loved it! The room was great; it had a safe, good sized mini fridge, gas fireplace, wet bar, dinner utensils, corkscrew, glasses, coffee pot, coffee, hair dryer, salon quality shampoo/conditioner/soaps/lotion/body wash. We had absolutely no problem with parking on the street (more convenient then some hotel parking). Staff was excellent, the breakfast was great, and served in the beautifully landscaped pool area . Albury Court is close to all the hot spots in Key West, yet away from the noise! We will stay again and again. We previously stayed at the Westin and were sorely dissapointed.

Best bargin in Key West

by TripAdvisor Member MrValiant

Great location at a great price! 3 blocks to the Harbor Walk and 6 blocks to Duval Street. Nice little pool, continental breakfast, fridge in room, all you need. This property is owned by Historic Key West Properties and they also own the Budget Inn Key West across the street. The Budget is where we stayed in January 2006 and we booked there again but when we arrived they upgrades us to the Albury Court. I would have been happy at either place but our room at the Albury Court was actually a 2 room suite so that was great. The staff was very freindly and hospitible. Highly recommend it and we will be back!

nice stay

by TripAdvisor Member mamalotzaluv

My husband and I stayed at Albury Court in Key West in March. Very clean and quaint. Small pool in the courtyard which was great for 85 degree weather. We walked everywhere. The harbor was beautiful with lots of restaurants. We manged to spend some time at Sloppy Joes, great entertainment, and probably the highlight of our stay was "Danger Charters", a sailboat trip with snorkeling and kayaking and a great sunset on our way back.You won't be sorry if you book a room here.

No Queen Size Bed/Rude Reception

by TripAdvisor Member lingoling

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Albury Court in Dec. 2007. We stayed in Room 24 which faced the back so was quiet. Warning - if you get a room facing Eaton street it would be extremely noisy as it's a very busy road. I knew from the reviews that the rooms are small but when I walked in I thought it was a joke. The room was so tiny, it did not even have room for a chair. You could barely walk past the bed to get to the bathroom.

Most amazingly, the bed was not queen-size, as advertised on their official website, but a double. In fact, all the rooms I saw had only double - not queen size - beds. I was surprised that none of the reviews mentioned the discrepancy. I can't remember the last time I stayed in a room for 2 that had only a single double size bed. It was extremely uncomfortable and too small for two people to sleep in.

Regarding hospitality, the night shift guy was nice and the old lady was helpful and friendly, but the Polish girl, who happened to be one of our earlier reception experiences, was unpleasant and rude. When we asked her about the possibility of switching rooms, she continued to look at her computer and did not even look up when she spoke to us. Was she too busy playing solitaire to deal with clients. While I dealt with her, three people came in to check out. There was no "thanks" or "goodbye" from her when these clients left. She barely addressed any one of them. Her tone was curt and abrupt. I couldn't believe that was the hospitality of a bed and breakfast inn.

I would never go back again. There are many other better b&b's in the Keys. Avoid this one for sure.

Modern B&B with charm

by TripAdvisor Member Escapism_101

THE GOOD:
•Suite – just as depicted on the hotel website. Our suite was a traditional room with queen size bed and fireplace; very modern, clean and decent size for 2 adults @ $139/night
•Bed - extremely comfortable, firm mattress with fluffy pillows. Carpet and tile floor - immaculate
•A/C - that sucker was something fierce. It worked like a charm (our room was an icebox upon arriving which suited us just fine for the heat in Aug!).
•Flat screen LCD TV - perfect size including cable
•Mini-wine chiller / refrigerator - was perfect to keep a bottle a wine, some fruits, cheese and snacks you may bring along on your trip down to the keys
•Lighting - large windows enough to allow a lot of natural light during the day and bright halogen lighting for nights
•Bathroom - ultra clean and spacious with good size shower stall
•Closet – standard size with Iron and board and electronic safe inside.
•Waterfall Pool – very clean; definitely a splash pool like the ones you see at a spa (you can’t dive or do laps!) but it’s good enough to cool off and lounge in for an hour
•Continental Breakfast – served every morning between 8:30-10am by the pool. Many offerings including fresh bagels, English muffins, fruit, yogurt, toast, tea, coffee, orange juice – just enough to start your day!
•Front Desk Staff - Polite, courteous and helpful. Abby your service was second to none! We had to push our reservation back a night and the staff was helpful and accommodating to our unforeseen delay.


THE BAD:
•Having inherited high standards for hotel accommodations from my mother (who worked in hotel management for 25 yrs) I was hard pressed to find fault with anything at Albury Court. Our only issue was having to walk across the street to a sister hotel (Budget Key West I think?) to use the ice machine (there is none on the property) and a couple microscopic ants around the bar sink (the only reason we could see them is because the counter was black marble otherwise you'd never notice. Not a big enough issue to spoil our stay).
•Noise - overall a very quite property with little to no street noise at night. With the exception of a few loud talking guests in the courtyard between 2-3am (returned from Duval Street festival Sat night) the overall noise level was minimal.
•Parking - a bit of a challenge - my recommendation is that once you find one leave you car there for the duration of your stay and travel by foot. Duval Street is about a 15min walk away which is where all the action is. Alternatively, there is a parking garage about a 1.5 blocks away for $13 USD. Be mindful of local parking regulations or you WILL get towed (i.e. where permit / local resident only signs or yellow curbs are indicated). The streets are SMALL so it made it was sometimes difficult to maneuver during high traffic mid-day (most residents / tourist travel by scooter, motorcycle or bicycle for this reason; less hassle). We will definitely rent a scooter when we visit next year.
•Dining Out – Be prepared to spend $$$. A few restaurants were a bit too pricey for what they actually served and we audibly heard more than a few complaints from other patrons while dining. I think it comes down to a matter of priority. If minimal spending is key stick to your average Wendy’s or Outback. If you’re looking to explore your taste buds, then ask for referrals to get the best meal for your buck. When in doubt, there is a Mc Donald’s and Wendy’s within driving distance! lol

THE UGLY:
•Absolutely none! We will definitely be returning to Albury Court in 2008 (most likely with family and booking several additional rooms) as this is now our accommodation of choice in Key West!
•The price was right (we booked through Expedia at $321 for Fri& Sat night stay). Compared to other chain hotels in the area (Radisson etc...) this small Inn beat them out hands down for price and quality.
•We were close enough to all the action of Duval Street yet far enough away to get a peaceful night’s sleep without the fuss of crowds and noise.
•We highly recommend this hotel to those couples (young or old) seeking romantic escape and relaxation with the option of entertainment nearby.

No Problem, Loved It & Will Return

by TripAdvisor Member Lovegetawayweekends

No problems with anything. Desk staff suggested & guided us where to park for FREE with the off street parking & found availablity. Room was very clean, bathroom of decent size, nice walk in glass enlcosed shower & yes, the grout is a bit dark from mildew stains, but I myself live in Florida & know it is impossible to keep grout WHITE all the time. It is the subtropics. Breakfast was coffee, juice, muffins, pastries & fruit, nothing spectacular, but enough to carry you over until you eat a meal somewhere else later. Small pool, but nice. Our room was upstairs in back area, heard some noise, but nothing major & a/c running off/on helped to cut the sound. Walked to Duval, several times & Turtle Kraals: all convenient. Adults only & non smoking in all rooms, but smoking is allowed in outside areas. We will stay here again!!

a little gem of a hotel

by TripAdvisor Member robLansing

My red haired, hot blooded lover and I booked this little gem on line, they are owned by a group that owns some other properties in KW. We had good luck at another one, this one was a bit less money, so we took a chance!

we were not disappointed at all. It was a lovely little room with a great shower. Clean and well appointed. We found parking right across the street (in KW this is no small thing!) a great tv to watch an important ball game... comfy bed. Terrific in every way.

They have a tiny little pool with a water fall.. just big enough to sit or stretch out in... ideal after a hot sweat day of walking around KW.
