Very good guesthouse in "old town" of Key West, comfortable room and bed, clean, happy hour and in general very good staff. The cleaning of the rooms was good but it looked like the staff was a bit stressed. Fantastic breakfast. Warmly recommend the guesthouse.

Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you would consider recommending us! We apologize if the housekeepers appeared stressed at all, they are wonderful, super hard workers and are completely committed to doing their very best, as are all of our staff. Housekeeping is also a very physical job...

Alexander's has it just right .... Immaculate and classy - yet comfy and welcoming. The staff was kind and genuine, and the set-up is just perfect. The beautiful grounds, swanky room and complimentary happy hour drinks (try Jorje's Margaritas) were the icing on perfect Key West weekend. Oh yeah .... We will be back.

Woo Hoo Fantasy Fest is still SO fun after all these years! We love that the People's Parade on Fantasy Fest Friday begins right at the Alexander's door step. This is a GREAT way to see the parade from the comfort of the Alexander's front porch, with a cocktail in hand and a camera in the other...to take photos of...

Service was top notch. They greeted us with a cocktail at check-in. The staff was very attentive. Daily happy hour with free cocktails and the property was very clean. The pool very private (bathing suits required) and upper sun decks (clothing optional). We will be back.

The property is beautiful. Three old homes converted into one large guest house grouping. The service was great, and the front desk was accommodating in helping us to find parking. Parking is tight so I'm glad we only rented a car for our drive down and returned it the next day. I usually book gay/lesbian guest houses/hotels so that I...
