Love this hotel! The grounds are beautiful, very nice pool and bar for a lazy afternoon. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. The staff is wonderful as well. One of my favorites in Key West!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Garden Hotel. The Facility was extremely well maintained and clean. It was close to everything. The only thing I have to say bad was when we first arrived the lady at the desk was rude and every-time we saw her after it was as if we bothered her to speak to her. Second we had a misunderstanding regarding no breakfast being served, well because no one told us. Then we couldn’t get stuff replenished easily in our room. I tried to understand it was first week being open from COVID but I felt it could have been a little better organized and friendlier. We ended up avoiding the main house completely to avoid getting irritated.

This is a beautiful property in a perfect location. They have a hotel with a charming pool area, music in the evenings and a wonderful wine bar. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Key West.
