The Douglas House -Key West
Our first stay here. Have done the motel thing...and this was by far a better experience. My wife and I loved it. Private room and porch. Room was cleaned daily..fresh towels and linens.
Very cozy. I would recommend this to couples or if you can get into a deluxe room if you are
traveling with older children. No more than maybe 2. Older couples and newlyweds.
Unique Quality: Gardens were amazing. Liked the private entrance. Parking was very limited. Pool was amazing. Does have a nice continental breakfast for something light in the morning.
Staff was very accomadating.
Directions: It has about 5 houses that are all in one area. With different housing rooms in all of them. Between Whitehead and Duval Street
My wife and I stayed there in July 2004.
They arranged bikes for us immediately and through our weeks stay were very helpful in recommending and booking different activities and dinner reservations.
The room was very clean, air conditioned, and had a refridgerator. What else does one need?!?
The pool area was great though we hardly spent any time there. Key West has so many things to do and plenty of beaches. We just had no time or inclination to go there.
The only negative, and it holds for everywhere not just Douglas House, was the annoyance of loud, misbehaving, ill mannered crotchturds. I wish there were places that adults could go without having to share in the misery of those that have chosen to spawn. Luckily our room face the street.
Unique Quality: The pools were beautiful. Though I'm not a fan of heavily chlorinated water, given the child infestation during part of our stay I suppose it was a necessity.
The staff was always pleasent and knowledgeable.
Directions: South end of Duval in the "gay end" of town. Better to stay there and walk or bike to "party" end of Duval for some a more peaceful neighborhood.
A Key West Bargain
We stayed off-season for only $99 a night. The room was clean, the tv, fridge & air conditioner worked and there were plenty of towels. We even had our own porch. The staff was very friendly & helpful (even booked a snorkelling trip for us). The grounds were lovely - two pools, a jacuzzi and lots of seating both in sun and shade. The only complaint I have was that the shower was tiny, but we more than got our money's worth. The free breakfast is, well, free - bread, muffins, cereal, milk, juice & coffee.
Unique Quality: Douglas House consists of several buildings which share a common yard with a wonderful garden. There's even a koi pond & a tiny waterfall. It's located between Duval and Whitehead at the 1100 block - convenient to everything but far enough down to be peaceful. I'd definitely recommend it.
Directions: Old town, just off Duval.
