      Historical Traveler Reviews Avalon Bed and Breakfast Key West

      Can't Wait To Go Back!


      I read the reviews on many B&B's in Key West before stumbling on this one. The rates were better than the rest and the review about the cats didn't bother me since I'm a kitty-lover. I couldn't have been happier with my decision. The house is located near the Southernmost point. We stayed in the "budget" room. The room was behind the main house near the pool. It was small but it was extremely quiet and very clean. The canopy beds gave the room a romantic look and they turn the lights on in your room for you so when you get back at night, you have light. I only saw the cats twice, and never at breakfast. It was relaxing to sit on the porch and have a great breakfast that filled my stomache. Doug and Yvonne provided us with tons of information, including where to get a great turkey sandwich. I can't wait to go back and bring my whole family! I HIGHLY recommend this B&B if you want to have an extremely pleasant, relaxing time in Key West.

      Not crazy about the cats


      Hotel was very comfortable. The only problem is some rooms were bigger than others and we did not get the room we had booked 3 months in advance.

      I also didn't like that cats roamed the table where the breakfast was being served.

      It was good because the scooter rental was across the street and a good beach was up the block. It was on the more quiet side so you can have peace or ride the scooters to the other side where the action was.

      All in all I would not stay here again but at another bed and breakfast up the street. There are 132 bed and breakfast places so do your research.

      Laid Back


      Fantastic 5 night stay for family of four. Very cozy, relaxing and clean environment. Terrific staff. Great European Breakfast. Will definitely stay here again on our next vacation to Key West.

      This is the place!


      The Avalon Bed & Breakfast is perfect. One of the best things about it is that is located away from the crowded and noisy area of Key West. Yet, if you'd like to party, is walking distance to it. If fact, everything seems walking distance from the Avalon. The room that we had, although somewhat small, was very nice and romantic. Breakfast was excellent - serve on the porch facing the street. Customer service was friendly and professional. Stay here and you will not regret it.

      It was on the better side of o.k.


      My friends and I just stayed at the Avalon for 2 nights. We were not impressed but not disappointed with the Avalon. In comparison with the other B&B's it seems to be in good condition. Some of them need restoration. When we first arrived we were initially thought to be spring breakers and were not happy to have us. We were not on spring break and were certainly going to pay good money to stay there. The other couple we traveled with paid the same as we did and had a far inferior room. Smaller and not as nice. Problems with bathroom door.

      They have a nice continental breakfast in a.m. . It is on the quieter side of Duval but that's a good thing sometimes. Pool area small, had potential to be crowded but other than us only a few other people. Scooter rentals conveniently across street.

      Awesome Place to Stay


      The B & B is really nice, great location if you don't mind a healthy jaunt to Mallory Square, but what's best are the rooms and the service. The rooms are absolutely adorable, very homey, and a much vacation feel to it. The service is great, people are very friendly. I only wish there was some hot breakfast added to the breakfast menu, considering that one is one vacation, one feels like a sumptuous breakfast once in a while.

      Friendly and Traditional


      Very good B&B on the "quiet" end of Duval Street. Room was on the small side, but beautifully furnished and decorated. Breakfast was extensive, and the staff were very helpful and friendly - we enjoyed it so much we stayed for an extra night!Highly recommended.

      Avalon House


      A wonderful place to stay and relax. Close to all of the activities on Duval Street, but far enough away that it is quiet. Breakfast on the front porch was excellent! The people who ran the Bed and Breakfast made you feel like family. We will definitely stay there again when we go back.

      Attentive and family friendly


      This was our first visit to Key west (april 2003), having visited Orlando many times. and would noramlly stay in large resort style properties. My wife and I have a 3yr daughter, and we noted that many of the B&B properties in Key west specificaly exclude young children.

      Not so the Avalon. They couldn't have been more accomodating, providing my daughter with personal attention, some toys in the lobby area, and a great bed. The room itself was lovely, and based in a charming, clean property. The gentlemean who helped us (and he'll forgive me not remembering his name...but the one with the moustache and glasses) was great. serving us to a wonderful continental style breakfast. as the previous reviewer states...a nice change from the usual heavy stuff.

      All in all, a great B&B and I'd highly recommend it.

      Nice and cosy place


      We went to Key West for the first time in August 2003. At home we found Avalon B&B via the Internet and did a reservation for three nights. But after the first night at Avalon we decided to extend our stay with one extra night.

      Avalon B&B is really a nice clean place and very cosy. The people working there are very helpful and friendly.

      Avalon B&B is ideally located on Duval Street close to the southern most point in the continental USA. The breakfast is served on the porch and it was great to sit outside in the morning while looking at Duval street. The breakfast itself was good with bagels, toast, danish, and fruit. Seen from our perspective it was nice with the selection of bread and fruit instead of the heavy stuff like pancakes with melted butter.

      The pool is small and only 4 foot deep. So if you want a place where you can really go swimming, we think you need to find another place like a resort. But still it met our demands for a place to be cooled down and to relax.

      If going to Key West again we would definitely select Avalon B&B. We can highly recommend this place.

      We eventually came upon a nice looking restaurant on Duvall Street called Fogarty's. We were told that the gracious mansion in the background was once owned by a mayor of Key West. The front garden had been converted to a restaurant, and it was more than pleasant sitting outside eating ribs.
      We eventually made our way back to the hotel and although it was early, it did not take long to fall asleep.

      ... I wanted a small piece of coral for home. We took lunch with us and ate it at one of the parks along side the road of a bridge to one of the keys. LOTS of jellyfish in the water! We stopped at an information place on hwy#41 - walked the boardwalk ... Saw gators, herons, ibis, anhingas... As we were driving, there was a canal/creek much of the way. Here we saw lots of gators in the water as well as many other local birds. We arrived home around 6:30. Unfortunately didn't get out in the ...

Back on board we had pre dinner birthday drinks - Terry and Rick really surprised Tony when they presented him with 2 original stone bottles, from his grandfathers ginger beer factory in South Africa. The birthday dinner was at the Canaletto Resteraunt, the Italian themed specialty Resteraunt on board. An excellent meal was had by ...

      It is fun to wake up and drink coffee waiting for the sunrise and then in the afternoon we do the same thing waiting for the sunset. The sunsets are just awesome.........better than anywhere else I've ever been. I know we are supposed to watch the sunset from "mallory square" but by ...
