From the moment we checked into the Tropical Inn till the moment we left we enjoyed our stay. The owners are friendly and committed to a positive experience. Room was clean, adorably furnished, comfy bed and pillows and had a great private balcony with both recliners and a swing. Its hard to believe that you are actually on Duval Street...

My husband & I had the most wonderful time staying at the Tropical Inn. We booked a room just 2 weeks in advance and having never stayed at a B&B, had no idea what to expect! Upon arrival Jane & Allen made us feel so comfortable! We stayed in one of the rooms off from the pool (I think room...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tropical Inn, perfect location, well kept and nicely decorated. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The continental breakfast was plentiful and nicely presented. Loved the private back pool and hot tub area. The only negatives were the tiny room, we couldn't easily open the suitcase anywhere but on the bed and the...

The staff were very helpful, the grounds and our room were nice. The location was convenient to everything KW has to offer. The continental breakfast was average. We stayed in the Pineapple suite in the back of the complex to enjoy privacy and hopefully less noise. But be forewarned that even this location in the complex is not void of...

As an Innkeeper who takes guest satisfaction very seriously, it is distressing to receive notice of a one's dissatisfaction when nothing has been said about a problem during their stay, when we would have had the opportunity to remedy the situation. While we may have not been able to rely upon the City of Key West's noise ordinance for relief,...

Tropical Inn is a very cute bed and breakfast. We stayed in the main house and really enjoyed our stay. The pool area was very tropical and the cottages out back looked adorable. The entire property appeared to be very well maintained property. All of the staff was very friendly! Great location right on Duval Street and was walking distance...

The Tropical Inn has a great location on Duval Street. It's very charming, and it's clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful with everything. The best restaurants in Key West are within easy walking distance of the inn.

This B&B is right in the heart of Key West on Duval Street but manages to maintain a wonderful sense of calm and exotic wonder. We stayed in the Coconut Cabana for three nights. A very charming little place. Immaculate cleanliness. Helpful front desk. Easy to get to the bars, the beach, the harbour, the six toed cats. A super...

We were a little hesitant to stay at a bed and breakfast as opposed to a larger hotel with all the amenities. We actually changed to Tropical Inn as a last minute decision due to the location. It was nice to sit on the upper level porch and people watch. The upper and lower balcony and porch were great locations...

The location of this place is perfect. It's right on Duval St. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't use it the entire time. Mostly everything was within walking distance. Any craziness you may experience on Duval St. disappears when you walk through the front door. We stayed in the Poinciana room, which was perfect for us. We...

I’m almost never write reviews about places I stay, but I feel compelled to share my experience at the Tropical Inn, even though I want to keep the Tropical Inn as my own little secret place to visit. I have stayed at the Tropical Inn twice, the first time in September 2016 and the second time in early September 2016....
