The Gardens Hotel is a stunning gem right down the street from all the excitement of Key West. The grounds of the hotel are an oasis and we liked meeting the resident turtles, cockatiels, koi and cats. The rooms are comfortable and the beds are like a dream! We enjoyed spending time on our balcony overlooking the frog fountain and... More

The perfect place for a peaceful vacation. You would never know your 1 block away from duval st. The pool was relaxing, the garden is great and the cottage was perfect for privacy. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. Would absolutely stay there again

We intended to only spend 2 nights at the Garden Inn but loved it so much we ended up staying 3. As this place is fully booked months in advance we consider ourselves very lucky. The place is beautiful - not only the accommodation but the stunning garden with its big (heated) swimming pool. We arrived very late and after... More

Although we didn't stay here, the D'vine bar was highly recommended so of course I needed to check it out. Loved this ability to choose what size sample to try of the wide variety of wines. And then to enjoy it in their lovely pool area was perfect. It was mid-week so quite quiet but a perfect peaceful afternoon to... More

This beautiful hotel (more like a B&B) lives up to its name. The beautiful gardens invite you to relax and enjoy a kickback day by the pool or a relaxing afternoon reading a book. We sat in the lighted gazebo one night and enjoyed great conversation. The rooms did not disappoint. Every room has a porch or veranda and we... More

I lived in a different hotel on the first night I arrived here. I feel awful, couldn't sleep well. I wanted to go home at that time. Next morning we moved to the Garden hotel. We got welcome drinks and the staff are so nice that we even checked in three hours earlier. When I entered into Cottage 4, I... More

Greeted with champagne & beer (for the hubby). Wonderful staff, beautiful accommodations, and excellent mattresses. Loved the gardens! Very peaceful and relaxing. Short distance to Duval. Can't wait to go back. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I made a quick one-night reservation at The Gardens Hotel. Once there we were sorry we didn't have more time to spend there. Beautiful and Very clean! We recommend the on-site parking. Even though, if you have a larger car it will be a tight fit. The bedroom was beautiful! And, this was a big deal for... More

I love this place! Cozy, romantic, very nicely decorated. Very centrally located. Only a block and a half from duval. The staff was courteous and helpful. Pool bar is nice.
