      Based on a recommendation from friends, we wanted to stay at the Andrews Inn. Our stay was going to be several days and unfortunately, none of the Inn rooms had availability for the entire stay. I guess I waited too long. However, one of their cottages - the Eyebrow House - was available. We decided to splurge a bit and enjoy the extra room of a full living room, dining room, complete kitchen and back deck with a Jetted Tub. An additional surprise was our ability to use laundry facilities for free which really came in handy.

      This attractive, well-manicured and neatly landscaped cottage is located very conveniently off Duval Street. It is close to the action and centered between the two waterfront destinations. The look and feel of the neighborhood made us feel that we were residents of this quaint and wonderful destination.

      Parking could have been a challenge since the cottages do not have reserved spaces. However, the proprietor kindly reserved us a spot with his vehicle and after parking, we did not find a need to drive anywhere during our trip. We walked everywhere which helped work off the great meals we enjoyed.

      The only caution I would pass along is that the streets can become very noisy as the bars start closing or their clients reach their limits. We were frequently awakened from 1:00-4:00 AM most nights by loud voices. Of course, without thinking about it, we ended up there on a Spring Break week. So this may account for unusual nocturnal outings. Additionally, this cottage is connected to two other of the Andrews Inn cottage dwellings. If you have rambunctious neighbors upstairs or behind you, you will know it!

      The proprietors and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. As a cottage rental, we did not get to enjoy the "Breakfast" portion of the B&B. However, we did attend their afternoon happy hour and enjoyed the poolside accommodations of the main property. We would definitely stay at the Andrews Inn again - only next time, I would make my reservations much more in advance and stay at the main facility.

      Can't get any better than Andrews Inn

      from

      March 28, 2006 - one week is not enough time to spend in Key West, especially if you have the privilege of staying at Andrews Inn. A quiet inn one-half block off Duval. From the minute you arrive until the minute you leave (which you'll hate doing) you are treated wonderful. The owners, Nancy & Tom, are two of the best people you can meet. They are genuinely good, good people. We were met by their property manager, Jorge, who is the most upbeat, positive thinking person I have ever met. He goes above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. Answers thousands of questions a day and always with a smile and offers great suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. He makes you feel like you've known him all your life and he has a great sense of humor. The inn offers a very nice breakfast, and a fun cocktail hour. A big plus as you get to meet everyone staying at the inn. Really fun! The rooms are very nice, clean and well-maintained. The roosters crowing at 4:19 a.m. every morning can be resolved with ear plugs that Jorge so graciously offers. The caretaker/room cleaner/breakfast setter upper, Luc, is also a plus to this wonderful inn. He is quiet, but very interesting to chat with in the mornings.

      Always amazing!!

      My husband and I continue to frequent the Andrews Inn. We will only stay here in Key West...we are totally loyal! The staff is unmatched and the inn is just so perfect. They do a nice happy hour, a great breakfast on the deck, and they will do anything to help you have a wonderful vacation. There are not enough things we can say about the wonderful job they do. All of the rooms are done nicely and are very cute. The privacy is great in any of the main rooms and definitely at the cottages. Everything is in walking distance and the staff will help you book any excursion you'd like to do or even any reservations for dinner you need. It was affordable and we will not stay anywhere else...we are there for life when we visit. My family had a place on Key West so I feel like I have been exposed to many different lodging options, but this is so much more. This place is a vacation in itself and how you are supposed to enjoy the island. A MUST in Key West...this is how it is supposed to be on a trip down there!

      I hated to leave

      from

      This was my sixth visit to Key West and my fifth to the Andrews Inn. I have stayed in several rooms and cottages and always find them exceptionally clean and comfortable. Five friends stayed in the Sailor House which is a small Conch Cottage a short ways away from the B&B, but still located right off Duval on a quiet street. 2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths with a private deck and hot tub. Full kitchen, and living/dining area. We could not have ask for a more gracious concierge than Jorge. And Blanche and Martin kept our little piece of paradise super clean for 4 days. They continue to impress with their professionalism and great smiles. I am already planning my next trip in November and plan to visit at least yearly, for as long as possible. Lovely, Lovely, place.

      We felt at home at the Andrews Inn

      from

      My husband and I stayed for a week during the winter holidays. The concierge, Jorge, took great care of us and we had a wonderful time. The inn is right near the Truman and Duval intersection, so you are close to everything, but it is down a little alley, so you don't have the noise from the street and it feels nice and private.

      There were a lot of little extras that made a big difference during our stay. We especially enjoyed the daily happy hour and the free use of the hotel bicycles. Jorge reminded us about the need to make reservations for New Year's Eve dinner and helped us get everything arranged.

      Our room, the Pamplona, was beautiful and had a view of the Hemingway estate from the private balcony. We will definitely return!

      Very Nice Place to Stay!

      from

      My husband and I stayed in their Treetop Studio for 7 nights 12/6 - 12/13. This studio is the upper floor of Eyebrow House and is very private with it's own kitchen, bathroom, and deck with two-person hot tub. This unit does not receive the complimentary breakfast, and we did not use the pool although it did look nice and clean. We absolutely loved the owner and Jorge, who were instrumental in helping us make decisions on what to do while in Key West. The location couldn't be more ideal... It's within walking distance to EVERYTHING yet just a little off Duval to make it quiet.

      If you want a clean, quiet, and affordable place to stay, check them out!

      Charming and quiet oasis

      from

      My mom, sister and I stayed at the Andrews Inn for a four day Key West get-away. We found the Andrews Inn to be a friendly, charming, peaceful place to stay with clean, tastefully decorated rooms and a helpful, upbeat staff. Can't beat the location for exploring anything and everything in Old Town. Enjoyed the resident cats in the courtyard and the mimosas for breakfast. This is a great little place!

      This place is perfect!

      from

      The Andrews' Inn is a pretty and peaceful hideaway in the heart of all that is Key West. George was a gracious host and advised us on the best use of our time during our short stay (3 days, 2 nights). This was our first visit to Key West, but our experience was so positive, we will return! The staff at the Andrews' was primarily responsible for this good time, including our new friend, Blanche. Our room was "Venezia". It was small but charming and spotlessly clean. The Hemingway felines greeted us each morning as we enjoyed mimosas at breakfast. We had convenient parking for our car and never used it during our stay.

      Great place, super people

      from

      Just returned from a week in Key West. Stayed in the Eyebrow House which is operated by the folks who own Andrews Inn. The bottom half of a house, it had a great front porch with wicker chairs and a private deck in back with a jacuzzi. Conveniently located to Duvall (only one block, mid Duvall St.) yet quiet and secluded behind a fence and landscaping. The best thing about this place is it's staff. We really enjoyed getting to know KoKo and Peter. They went out of their way with grace and humor. Needless to say we would recommend this to anyone who is going to visit in Key West. There are more elegant places to stay for big bucks but for the money and location it is a clean, well kept, nicely decorated and fun place to stay.

      Peaceful haven

      from

      We stayed at Andrews Inn for our visit to Key West, and it's what keeps us coming back again and again. The service is conscientious but not intrusive. The inn is surprisingly quiet for its location next to busy Duval Street. We could come here and only leave to eat!

      A Key West Eden

      from

      This was our first time in Key West, and we choice Andrews Inn because it overlooked The Hemingway House and we're both cat lovers. The inn did not dissappoint us. It was a true paradise, and tucked out of the way to be truly private, yet in walking distance to nearly everything. The innkeeper was gracious and knownledgable and we're planning on going back there again soon.

      They told us they love listening to us talk. Quite funny. It was such a nice evening, we sat outside under the awning and had steak, roast potatoes & veggies for tea. Very nice. We are staying here for 5 nights.

      We spent our first full day, and Dom's birthday, in the pool. Which was perfect. The sun was out all day, and while the high only reached 67, we were very comfortable. The pool area is well sheltered from the wind, so with the sun and warm pool water we were never uncomfortable. We took a break just before lunch to walk to Fausto's grocery store - a nice local market that offers some ...
