3:00 AM - an ad-hoc rendition of something close to "On the Waterfront" occurs outside our window. “Stella”, or whatever female name is being bellowed. “Stella, I'm on my knees. I’m literally on my knees. I’m not like your Ex. You gotta meet me half-way here Stella”. (If you read this blog, you know who you are and you know this is true). Could you have been a contender? Nope – just ...
Next it was lunch at Hog’s Breath Saloon. Nothing spectacular, but passable. Not on my list of places to return to. Then it was on to Truman’s Little White House in the Keys. President Truman came to Key West 11 times for a total of 175 days during his time in office. He said he got more work done here than he ever got done in Washington. Since nothing gets done in Washington that statement is, without a doubt, fact.
We drove to a parking garage at Grinnell and Caroline to start the volkswalk. Piracy was the main activity around Key West before the Navy established a base here in 1823 which cleared the way for a substantial wrecking industry. Millions were earned by lifting people and cargo off shipwrecks along the reef and by the 1850's Key West was the wealthiest (per capita) city in the U.S. We went to Mallory Square to watch the 10:00 am off ...
... he will mention Israel. Had an enjoyable evening.
Today we drove the car into Key West, parked outside the main township, then got on our bikes to ride in to the town. No helmet rule for adults here. I was a bit nervous, as I was following Mike, who was going in and out of people, on the footpath, then on to the road, among
the traffic. I felt like my head was on a swivel, trying to check every direction so as to ...
... ride on, but for some reason we didn't. Instead we tried to hurry the kids along, encouraging them to keep moving.
When we finally did make it to Mallory Square we saw that the sun had gone behind a cloud before it set, so we really didn't miss it. And what we saw as it went down behind the cloud was pretty anyway. There was lots to see at the square - buskers and artists with displays. The kids enjoyed watching the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Key West Harbor Inn
Going back again this year
my wife & I spent our 30th anniversary here last year & we're going back again this July for our 31st. I stumbled on this place while searching the web, and decided to try it out.....what a wonderful vacation! It's so close to the harbor, restaurants & attractions, but once you're inside the gate, it's as if you're in another world.
Laid Back and Wonderful!
We weren't sure what to expect because the B&B does not advertise. But, as soon as we stepped into the carribean courtyard and were warmly welcomed by Steve and Alexis we knew we had made a good choice. The Peurto Rican Suite was wonderful - private, king bed, clean, nicely decorated, private porch, etc. Excellent location - close to everything and yet quiet and private. This B & B is a MUST!
We just got back from a 25th Anniversary trip to the KW Harbor Inn.
Who could ask for anything more???
Thought we died and went to heaven! Alexis and Steve and all the staff were the best anyone could ever hope for. When we return to Key West which is a sure thing ,we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.When you have hosts that love what they do it shows in so many ways. I feel like we have made new and wonderful friends and thank them for a wonderful experience.
Best of Key West-hands down....
Steve, Alexis and Leonardo are the best! From check-in to check-out the experience was wonderful! As a single female visiting Key West for business and pleasure, the gated and private grounds made me feel secure. The gents were most delightful and other guests became friends for the week sharing stories of past visits, etc. This is the best kept secret in Key West...I have visited Key West since 1996 and by far, this place has it all...cleanliness, personable and trusting staff, a great breakfast, happy hour, location is tops, and hosts that will know your name on your next visit.
The very best place to stay!
The Key West Harbor Inn is definitely the BEST place to stay if you want to have the time of your life! Steve and Alexis are incredible hosts, and the rooms, breakfast and happy hour are the best!
Fantastic Harbor Inn
the harbor In is THE best B & B my wife and I have ever stayed in.
There are some fancier but none better. The location is the best, being right beside the harbor and many of the best restaurants. The plantings (very think vegatation) make you feel like you are a million miles from anywhere. Breakfast is very nice served around the pool. The happy hour makes you want to forget going to the docks for sunset celebrations.
Nothing gets better than sitting in the spa soaking with a glass of wine and fine music after a long day of walking around. What a great place. We'll be back soon.
My husband and I spent two days at the Harbor Inn in Key West - definitely not enough time. The inn is very quaint, small and quiet. The foliage surrounding the inn is quite spectacular. A sumptuous breakfast was provided as well as a complimentary happy hour in the afternoon. The rooms are quaint, from small to quite large with wet bars. Our compliments to our hosts Steve and Alexis.
This is the second time that we've come to the Harbor Inn. My thoughts before arrival were that maybe the second time around would not be as good as the first, well I was completely wrong. As soon as we walked into the property it felt like home. The gardens, the room, the whole atmosphere was simply great! No more doubts, this will be our home away from home from now on!!! Thanks to Steve and Alexis and the Gang!John & Peggy
Charming and just perfect!
I stayed at the Harbor Inn in August 2002. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The decor was simple and elegant yet relaxing and embodied the spirit of the Keys. The atmosphere of the entire Inn is intimate and relaxing; very quiet, yet located within easy walking distance to many restaurants and the harbor. They provided an EXCELLENT free breakfast with yummy fruit, as well as a complimentary happy hour every afternoon. The room was very clean and had been recently renovated. We loved the details that the Harbor Inn offered, including the CD player in the room. This is a charming, relaxing getaway and we will definitely return!
