Not at all satisfied. It is run down and filthy. The room I stayed in looked nothing like the pictures on the website. There was mold on the ceiling, hair and mold in the shower, exposed ceiling fan wires and I don't think the bathroom has been cleaned in quite some time.

Pictures are very deceiving, for what I thought I booked. I thought they had made an error so I went to check with them and they told me no that is what I had booked I was quite upset as I could not upgrade to another room that was the only room they had available. Needless to say we started...

We do appreciate your business and understand your complaints with the water being shut off. These were necessary emergency repairs and could not be avoided. The plumber start after noon to minimize impact and regretabley the repair took longer than expected. As for the room size, all our rooms are different and we expressly state these are "petite queen rooms"...

Upon checkin I was unable to use the bathroom because it was broken. Things started to go downhill from there. The entire room has a significant mildew problem and has not been cleaned properly in quite some time. The comforter in the bed is stained and I found a few stray hairs on the sheets. As you can see from...

Hello, Thank you bringing to our attention your concerns. I have shared your photos with our housekeeping department and of course agree that stray hairs and mildew are unacceptable. You are also correct that the A/C should be left on and that is our instruction to our staff to leave it running at 74 degrees. I will have our maintenance...

if you book in advance, be careful about what room s you are getting. We booked and paid in advance at the Keys visitor centre, on the way down the keys. We had seen lovely rooms on the website prior to booking. On arrival we were given what we could only describe as student accommodation. On the demand of our...

We were supposed to stay at the Wicker Guesthouse but ended up at Olivia by Duval. That worked out perfectly! We were greeted by the friendly faces on Andrea and Pat who congratulated us on our anniversary and hooked us up with drink coupons and suggestions on where to eat. We went to Key West for our honeymoon and this...

Inexpensive for Key West; plus located a few steps from Duval Street which is where "everything happens" at Key West. Perfect location Uptown by Duval and Olivia Streets. Special for me is that it is directly across the street from Croissants de France -- the best croissants on Key West per my Vegetarian friends -- and for "Vegan me" that...

Thank you for the very positive review, however I will mention this is not an adult only guesthouse. We are family friendly and not clothing optional. We purchased the guesthouse 2+ years ago and changed the policy at that time. Although we do see mostly adults, oru policies are family friendly. Hope to see you again soon,

I loved my stay here! The rooms were very spacious and nice. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The location of the hotel is great, maybe a 15 minute walk from mallory square and from the best bars there. I would definitely recommend this place.

2 years ago we stayed in the cottage shown with a pool in back. Room was beyond beautiful. The pool is clothing optional so not a place for kids.
