OVerall we enjoyed our stay at Tropical Inn. We would highly recommend as very central location and fabulous courtyard with pool, and hot tub to relax at end of day. Rooms well appointed but room at front of the Inn was VERY noisy well into the wee hours of the morning. Continental breakfast provided was a nice start to the...

Vary friendly and helpful staff/owners. Came up with some super glue to repair broken earing an hour before the wedding. Stayed in the Gecko Garden room. Clean, well maintained, with its own private hot tub/pool. Although on a busy block on Duval St., once you closed the door the room was peacefully quiet. Breakfast included fresh fruit, good coffee, fresh...

Another "happily ever after" begun at the Tropical Inn! We are flattered and honored to have been a part of your special day, Mike and Nan! Many couples who have stayed with us for their destination wedding have made returning for each anniversary a tradition. We'd love to count you among them!

Spent a lovely weekend in Key West, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tropical Inn. The innkeepers were friendly, and so helpful. Lovely courtyard with pool and hot tub… Used the hot tub quite a bit. The Inn's location is on Deval Street right next to a neat little wine bar. We ended up our evenings having a glass...

Weathering the trials of life, especially those that blind-side us, demands some healing time. We are so happy to "be there" for guests when we can, in some small way, help in the process. Fortunately, this was one of those times, even if the best we could do was a smaller room than that originally chosen. We are glad to...

My wife and I enjoyed 9 days at the Tropical Inn for Fantasy Fest 2016. You can’t beat the location - just like many other reviewers have already stated, it’s right in the heart of Duval yet offers a very lush paradise on the grounds. It’s simply the best of both worlds! We stayed in the Coconut Cabana which we...

There are repeat guests and then there are Repeat Guests ... the ones who have become cherished friends. Little did we know, when we bought the inn 17 years ago, that we would inherit already-loyal Tropical Inn guests, Mark and Joyce. We have come to think of them more as world travelers who happen to just love Key West, and...

We absolutely adore this Inn. We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and return whenever we can. The Inn is located on Duval street so you can literally walk most places. We didn't touch our car the entire time. A small breakfast is offered with pastries and coffee. There is a small pool and hot tub that is shared and...

There is not a more valuable testimonial than repeat and referral guests and we are both fortunate and appreciative to have so many. We are especially happy to provide the little extra "romantic indulgences" that your husband thoughtfully arranged to make your stay particular memorable. Thank you so much for writing. We look forward to welcoming you again!

Appreciated having all three of us family members to stay together. Wonderful secluded and serene place yet right in the heart of Key West. Breakfast was great every day and the peacefulness of the Inn was amazing especially around the swimming pool.

We are so glad that your dates corresponded to vacancy in the Banyan Tree Suite, as it is our only accommodation that sleeps more than two guests. We limit capacities of the rooms -- and the inn in general -- so as to assure each and every guest the quiet and relaxing ambience your family enjoyed. Thank you for staying...

First rate service with an excellent location. Walking distance to all of the action, yet just far enough away for peace and quiet. The courtyard behind the Inn is paradise with lush tropical foliage, fabulous orchids and the care given to the property and to the guests is top notch. I have been to KW many times, but this is...

Tropical Inn exceeded our expectations. Everything was wonderful and the location (Duval Street) was perfect. Our room was cozy and comfortable with everything you would need down to the corkscrew and wine glasses. Everyone we met was so helpful and nice. The house keeper did a wonderful job.
