“Excellent B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2009

We do not really want to write a review in case this B & B becomes too "popular", but feel that it deserves a good review due to its overall excellence.
We have just come back from a two week stay at Popular House, as we wanted to escape Scotland in February. From the moment we arrived we felt enveloped by the warmth and friendliness of this house and staff. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated and kept very clean by the very efficient glamorous Tanya ( How does she manage to always appear very happy ) Breakfast was always abundant fresh fruit, fruit juice, bread and bagels, which you would think would be a bit boring for two weeks, but there was a different home baked offering as well every morning ( I would love a slice of David's chocolate cake right now ), which was always a surprise.
The staff are what really makes a holiday destination really special and the staff are fantastic. David and Richard were charming and helpful at all times and as for Lizzy, well what can I say - irreverent, naughty, funny and full of life. Do ask her if she can arrange a Burlesque evening for you during your stay.
We will be back!!!

Just a great place, with wonderful staff and a great ambiance about the place. Staff were excellent, our room was lovely and Key West is a great place for a good time. To sum up, two things; Go to key west and stay at this B & B.

Don't bother looking elsewhere this is just the best place to stay in Key West. We loved the kwbb so much that we have been ruined and could never stay anywhere else now.
It's so bright and colourful and very comfortable.
We agree with all of the previous reviews singing the praises of this real gem
On arriving we were warmly welcomed by Liz and her sweet cocker spaniel Buddy.
Our room on the third floor was spacious and spotlessly clean.
The breakfasts were very good and enjoyed in beautiful surroundings amongst lush plants in the decked rear garden.
We just love this place!

My girlfriend and and I visited Key West for a Babymoon... a final excursion before the "little one" consumes all of our time. 2 nights in Ft. Myers. 2 nights in Key West.

The Popular House is in a very nice location... close to the ferry terminal, close to Mallory Square, and close to Duval St. It was close enough for a 7 month pregnant lady to walk to each of these spots.

The staff is extremely friendly. David, Jody, and Richard were all really nice. They opened up our room for early check-in... and held onto our bags after the 11am checkout as our ferry back to Ft. Myers didn't depart until 6pm.

We had the 3rd floor room with a private bathroom. It was perfect for our purposes. There are no TV's in any room... which was nice as well (and we love our TV when at home). It think we logged about 20 hours of sleep during our Fri,Sat, Sun stay. The room was very quiet.

The only reason I wont give this review a 5 is based on value. The rate was $250/night. I waited until the week prior to book lodging and didn't have time to shop around. *For $150/night... this place gets a 5 plus from me.

We had a great stay!

I loved this B&B!
Great place to stay if you are travelling alone. Staff is sooo friendly, brf is soooo good, especially the fruit and the cakes.
If you are travelling on your own I would recommend the 'nun's room' to you. This a very cute/cozy room with a twin bed.
This place (and Key West) so different than Miami.
