      Historical Traveler Reviews Wicker Guesthouse Key West

      I'm in heaven

      from

      My boyfriend and I just returned from the most wonderful trip to Key West. (From the moment we checked in at the Wicker Guesthouse to the time we checked out.) The place was fantastic. We have stayed previously in Key West but nothing compared to this trip. Wicker Guesthouse was more beautiful then we could imagine. The rooms were large and nicely decorated. The landscaping was gorgeous. Like a tropical paradise. The staff was very helpful and gracious. ( we rented bicycles, went on a glass bottom boat, "ghost tour" all recommended by them) We will definately be back. We are in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with the Wicker Guesthouse.

      LOVED the Wicker Guest House!

      from

      We stayed at the Wicker Guest House for a week during our October 2003 trip to Key West. Even though we arrived after the office was closed, the staff made sure we had our key and map ready for us when we finally showed up. They were very pleasant throughout our stay and helped us out with the best places to rent bikes, eat, etc. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay and both were unique and wonderful. The pool was perfect for floating in and soaking up the rays during the lazy Key West days and the tropical vegetation surrounding the pool and grounds was beautiful. We will always make plans to stay here when we visit Key West.

      The Wicker Guesthouse was better than we ever expected

      from

      My family and I stayed in five rooms at The Wicker Guesthouse during the holiday. It was one of the most wonderful vacations we've ever had and in large part because of this great B & B. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful sending us to great retaurants off the main street and booking a great snorkel trip and "Ghost Tour" which we'll never forget.The property is huge and really is in the center of the historic area. They have a big garden with a pool and tons of flowering trees. The night blooming jasmine was amazing!The rooms are very clean and comfortable with tropcal bedspreads, brand new beds, and colorful art. Our every request for extra pillows, an iron, call a taxi etc were met with smiling, agreeable responses. This Guesthouse in busy crowded Key West is a real find. We felt very lucky to have picked it out of the many available on the web. It is an honest to goodness family run business and it shows in the friendliness and attitude of their staff.

      Best in Key West

      from

      We have been coming to Key West for 10 years- and just had our first stay at the Wicker House. We have previously stayed at the La Concha, the Marquesa and the Pier House- but none of these prior stays compared to the time we spent at the Wicker House. The property and rooms are gorgeous- and the cotinental breakfast, served poolside, is the most civilized event in town. The front desk staff acts dually as a concierge, and directed to me to the finest restaurants in town. The property is two blocks from Hemmingway's House, half a block to bike rentals, and right in the heart of Duval Street- nightlife and bars one direction, and art galleries and the beach the other. Experience has shown- this is the best stay in Key West

      I'll Return

      from

      First let me say that I had a great time and will return to the Wicker Guest House on my next visit. There are a few things though that could use improvement but overall, it is quite delightful. The rooms are somewhat spartan as you might expect. Clean. Not much to put your luggage on. Pretty bedspread and valence. The white walls need some colorful prints. The tub/shower needs new caulking (which is a pet peeve of mine) and it needs a new shower head. Really quiet for having a Duval Street address. The breakfast is pretty weak...mostly empty carbohydrate items. Nice fresh fruit. Could use cereal/granola and maybe some hard boiled eggs...neither of which cost much. (Try Blue Heaven for breakfast in Bahama Village a couple blocks away). Very friendly, attentive staff. Beautiful garden pool area (which can only be used 9am to 9pm which is generally good to keep the place quiet but I would like to have sat out there in the late evening with a drink without disturbing anyone). Breakfast is served poolside which is really quite pleasant. Good parking. Close to everything, far enough away from all the hub-bub. I'll be back.

      My Best Stay Ever in Key West

      from

      We just returned from a one week stay at The Wicker Guesthouse for a large family reunion. I was the only person who had visited Key West many times previously, but this was my first stay at this Guesthouse.

      We had been planning a reunion of our spread out family for six months.

      We all arrived at different times from all over the country.The reservation staff really made this a wonderful stay for all of us. I couldn't stay at the guesthouse I had been used to, as they don't accept large groups! We booked twelve rooms at The Wicker Guesthouse, and they took careful time on the phone to match rooms with the right people. Not only did all their helpful pre-arranging go smoothely, our stay was so delightful, and the property so ideal, that I'll never stay anywhere else. Nothing fancy, some minor plumbing problems that were fixed immediately. But clean and very comfortable rooms of many differing types...the friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever come across, from front office to housekeepers ...a truly lovely and expansive garden with good size, free-form pool. And while everyone in this resort boasts the best location, The Wicker Guesthouse really has it, no lie. Park your car in their lot, or don't rent a car...you don't need it. This is a tremendously perfect Inn, run well and priced right.

      Highly reccommend it.

      Far from the "Ritz-Glitz Resort"

      from

      We found this to be a conveniently located, comfortable, laid back, secure, and nicely maintained compound of "Old Key West"style buildings close to numerous restaurants and watering holes. The quiet, unhurried atmosphere is enhanced by lush tropical plantings. The hosts were knowledgeable and congenial, and parking and car keys were no problem. The pool is more than adequate for a refreshing dip. The most fun, practical, convenient, and inexpensive way to get about town is by bicycle, available a half-block away at the "Moped Hospital" at $4/day, with bike racks on premises. This is an excellent choice for an "Old Town" experience and we will return.

      Wicker Is Paradise

      from

      We have been coming to the Wicker Guesthouse for the past five years, and our stays become only more pleasurable with each visit. With it's location right on Duval Street, a beautiful french bakery, several art galleries, and all of the nightlife that the island is famous for is only a short stroll away.The rooms are clean and charming, surrounding the lush garden and large pool in the center of the property. The cheerful staff is also more than ready to act as a conceirge desk, offering local reccomendations for the best dining and entertainment that Key West has to offer.There is truly nothing so "Key West" as the Wicker House. See you next year!

      Great Location

      from

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wicker Guesthouse. The location can't be beat, in a nice area of Duval Street. It is not fancy to be sure, but our room was very clean and quiet. The staff was very helpful and they do provide parking, which is at a premium in Old Town, Key West. They do have "rules" which provide for guests safety and privacy (and quiet) and they ask that your car keys be left at the front desk in case of double parking. This in no way inconvenienced us. For the most part, we were able to walk everywhere. If you want a comfortable room with an "old town" feeling this is a great place to stay. The price included a nice continental breakfast and the pool was small but refreshing. Tropical plants abound. We would definitely stay here again.

      Not Wicker House, rather Wicker Dump

      from

      I could not believe that such a substandard place would exist in the heart of Key West. It seems that all the furniture has been bought at the local Salvation Army store. The various buildings are in desperate need of renovation. Don't be fooled by the pool: it's size is like a Jacuzzi. As long as you don't have to communicate with the surely owners, you are OK. But beware of them, if you don't stick to their "house rules".With so many lodging alternatives in Key West, no one has to put up with such a third rate establishement at these prices (around $130 a night).

Still in basic hand signaling training the "directional positioning" challenge was well above Mary’s pay grade.

      ... anglicised to ‘West’

      Many of the residents of Key West originate from the Bahamas and are known as Conchs (pronounced 'conks') On 23rd April 1982, The Florida Keys declared independence from the USA and although as a tongue in cheek gesture, the Keys have been known as the ‘Conch (Conk) Republic ever since. I wonder if the leader of the Key West Council is known as the Big Conk!!!

      ... nice just to stand in the ocean water! It would have been nice to have much longer to be able to hang out and enjoy the beach, but it just hadn't been planned in the schedule.

      We'll just have to remember that next time, we want to be sure we plan plenty of time at the beach!

      ... it was pretty choppy out there. At the last minute I decided to take Dramamine hoping to prevent sea sickness. It was still a beautiful day sunny and clear. The cruise was to take us about 6 miles out to a reef and from that spot we were to snorkel. There were 30 to 35 people on board, kids and adults it was a good mix of people. The closer we got to the reef the more choppy it got, that catamaran was rocking and rolling and so was ...
