I just returned from a long weekend at Island House that could have been a disaster, as Tropical Storm Isaac rolled into town a day and a half after I did. But it was one of the best vacations I've taken in a long time. I had reserved a cheaper room with a shared bath but still felt like I...

On my first trip to Key West, I stayed at two resorts over 8 days. The first resort was Big Ruby's and the second was Island House. I did this for two reasons. First to save myself some money and second to experience two different places. Feel free to check out my "Big Ruby's" review once it's posted. Upon arriving...

The staff was very professional and polite. Very helpful in making suggestions on where to dine or ordering a cab, etc. The rooms were very neat and well maintained. Although at times it was hard to get hot water to run and the water pressure is always low in Key West. Parking was a bit of a problem with just...

Stayed in Island House for 5 nights! This is without doubt one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The facilities are amazing, the rooms exceptional and the staff are outstanding!

Stayed at Island House for only 1 night which was to be honest far too short! Next visit we will definitely stay a little bit longer. Despite the rather high price tag, we had an amazing time at Island House, met new friends, enjoyed the Sunday afternoon pool party and all other facilities! We found the B&B very well maintained...

Island House is a fun and relaxing place to stay while in steamy Key West (we went in late June). The staff, especially at the front desk, is knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The property itself has a lovely courtyard with a pool, the bar and restaurant and is the focal point of the Inn. Two jacuzzis, a steam room,...

I didn't stay at the Island House but after looking for a decent gay place to have a drink, I went to the Island House. Even if you're not staying in there, you're allowed to go in the bar and have a drink. Bartenders are very friendly and if you want to use the pool, sauna e hot tub there...

My first stay at Island House was a vacation experience unlike any other I've had. What really sets the place apart is certain vibe that is hard to easily define. I agree with others that wrote the place is attitude free; the staff was very helpful and attentive. The weather wasnt the best during our stay which made me really...
