Historical Traveler Reviews The Grand Guesthouse Key West
Gorgeous Bed and Breakfast
I recently stayed at the The Grand for two nights with my husband and mom-in-law over a fabulous week end in Key West. The accomodation made the trip:
- It was centrally located. Close to everything we wanted to see and do without being overbearingly noisy or busy.
- The setting was immaculately cared for, well thought out, beautifully landscaped, and amazingly managed to make the most of every nook and cranny without ever feeling cramped or overstuffed.
- The service was warm and friendly with great advice on local activities and sights.
- Our room was spacious, clean and fresh.
- My favorite: the continental breakfast in the mornings was deelish! And the spa was just perfect.
Will definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a bed and breakfast in Key West.
Hard to Beat!
I love this kind of place: a very good price, a residential neighborhood, 5-10 minute walk from the action. Much more part of "old" Key West. I'll take this (despite the small room) anytime. The proprietors were very helpful and friendly, the continental breakfast was perfect for my needs.
If you're looking for luxury, there are other (more expensive) options, but for me this was perfect.
What a hidden treasure - just down from the old cemetery and away from the crazy noise of Duval. I have stayed here twice and was amazed both times by the friendly/family atmosphere. They have just put in a large swim spa which is unique and FUN. This guest house is close to the beach and downtown and is an amazing value. You could waste three times as much money and not get the same accommodations. See the true Key West. The staff will help you with all the best local attractions.
A "10" in all areas. Conveniently located in a quiet area, clean, and easily accessible to locations of interest. We will be making reservations to stay at The Grand in the future.
Great Little Paradise
The Grand Guest House is a clean,quiet little piece of paradise. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I can't say enough good things. Thanks for a peaceful vacation. Linda and Dan
We enjoyed everything about The Grand and will tell everyone we know of the nice, clean, quaint little bed and breakfast we discovered in Key West
Best of the Best
Thanks to Jim and Jeffrey, the proprietors of The Grand, our mini vacation with our teenagers (17 & 15) was the best trip in the world. The hospitality, warmth, and comfort of this quaint bed and breakfast on the east side of Key West, was just what our family needed to relax. On Jim's recommedations, we snorkled, kayaked and enjoyed a show. This B&B is a hidden treasure in Key West.
Clean, but small room.
My wife and I spent 3 nights here in late January 2004. very nice management and very clean and neat room. but room was very small. we knew this going in and weren't surprised, but after a couple of nights it got to be annoying. the location is ok but is a good long walk to the action end of Duvall St. we took the shuttle bus, which saved on shoe leather, and was especially nice after a day of drinking adult beverages. It was our 1st. trip to Key West so we learned as we went.
probably would pay a little more to get a larger room closer to the action. not bad for the money. we paid $118/night plus tax. they do have larger rooms, which we didn't see, but probably would be a better choice.
The Grand was great!
We stayed at the Grand over July 4th, 2003. A nice, quiet location yet within easy walking distance of Duval. The room was absolutely charming, very clean, lots of attention to detail. The owners and office help were extremely pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend it - a great bargain.
Clean and Quiet
My husband and I stayed here in January 2002. Our room was very clean but, small. There were no drawers and only a small rack for clothes (apprx. 3 feet) in the corner of the room. There was just enough room to walk around the bed. We had to live out of our luggage for a week. The location is very quiet. The complimentary continental breakfast was one of the best I've seen and served on a lovely patio on the side of the house. The two gentlemen that own the guest house were very sweet and willing to go out of the way to accomodate you; however, the woman who worked in the office during the week was rude and unpleasant. Hopefully, she is no longer employed there since she was the only unpleasant part of our stay in Key West. I highly recommend this guest house if you can travel light and use your room to shower and sleep only as we did. I do believe they have larger units for a higher price but, still reasonable. I agree with Frommer's, this is the best bargain and well kept secret on Key West. Compared to the prices of other places to stay, The Grand Guest House is an absolute steal.

So it turned out that the same people who took us our last night were taking us back out against our snorkel trip so it was all aboard the Echo 2 and we set sail. We actually got to have the sails up this time. It was so relaxing and so beautiful. The water here is just crystal blue. The photos don't show it as clear as it actually is. It really is just paradise! We saw pods of dolphins, cool fish, a frigate and a SEA TURTLE! Apparently they ...
... anti nausea meds tonight so we are hoping that tomorrow will be a much better day. Ian was sort of green too but was much better in the afternoon.
As we entered the Marathon Key area we passed by a 7 mile bridge it was very impressive looking. We Bryan and I say a dolphin dancing along with some jet skiis in the same area, I hope see them again tomorrow! This marina is great very popular we are tied up to the ...
... chit chat with John, we headed back down to the pier for the Revivalists, which ended up being a very enjoyable (free!) show.
It was time to head back to puttie after the show, and get situated for the evening. Cue bugs. Oh the bugs. Oh the bugs. Oh the bugs. I didn't know it when I went to bed, but my "honeymoon" with the Keys was over. I woke up to find my shins and feet covered in bites. The noseeums loved me, and my skin did not love them back. ...
... with a big pile of laundry on the floor.. and its starting to feel like home! haha!
We decide that since we are going to be hear for 4 days we might as well head out for the grocery store and pick up a few things.. might as well make ourselves comfortable for the next few days. since we have a fridge a toaster, the coffee pot.. and a microwave.
After finishing up at the store and loading up ...
... size of the ship, the entire vessel vibrated until about 4 or 5 this morning...a new experience, but one I guess we will get used to!
Our stateroom is forward starboard, which means if you are facing the front of the ship,it is on the right side and forward of midship. The bridge is in front of us. Our captain, or Master, is from Sorrento Italy and lives in Rome when not on board the Navigator.
The ship is booked to capacity, so just under ...
