Stayed at Keywest Harbor Inn in early February, and was a great place to stay. We booked the Puerto Rico room at the top and had great views of the harbor. The only downside was there is construction going on next door but for everything that there is to do in Key West, you really don't mind the louder noise. At night you can hear all the bands playing so if you really want peace and quiet, this may not be the place for you. But it adds to the atmosphere

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!
Beyond All Expectations!
We just got back from a 25th Anniversary trip to the KW Harbor Inn.
(4/2/04) All we can say is "WOW!!!" We had done a lot of net-searching, etc and decided to give the Inn a try. We were NOT disappointed. It surpassed our expectations. Steve and Alexis provide a beautiful and romantic tropical setting that is extremely private. They are available to offer help with plans but are in no way pushy or intrusive. In fact, even though the Inn was full (14 rooms-no children or Spring Breakers allowed) we felt that we had our own little oasis in paradise. The pool, with its coral waterfall, is warm and inviting and there is a large jacuzzi tucked away for privacy. The rooms are tastefully decorated (with poster beds) and the entire place is immaculate.
Breakfast by the pool is more than you will need to start the day and Happy Hour is much more than wine or beer! The Inn is literally steps away from the harbor and just around the corner (2 streets) from Sloppy Joe's, on Duval St. What a location! We had the ultimate romantic getaway for 5 nights and 6 days at the Harbor Inn and would return in a heartbeat! We hope to return someday soon. We DEFINTELT recommend the KW Harbor Inn if its romance and privacy you're looking for.
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!

... had to o to three places before we found someone with scooters willing to rent to us, and they were great: the moped hospital at Center and Truman streets (http://www.mopedhospital.com). After a quick orientation, we were off on our scooters, breezing along the streets of Key West. First stop was the old cemetery, where we could get a look at the interesting headstones and see ...
... two years ago, we had seen many 'Hemingway' points of interest, so we were very interested in his life in Key West. The house is the largest private property in Key West and at the second highest elevation - about 16 feet above sea level. The house is surrounded by a red brick wall, one of very few in this town of timber weatherboard homes and picket fences. As we walked through the front gate, we were met with a beautiful ...
... with the outdoor gas heaters - it was perfect for a chilly evening. Afterwards we strolled in and out of shops/ galleries ( boy there are many galleries here and quite high end too) and stopped in bars along the way to listen to music. We took the hotel shuttle home. (Cooler and windy today) DAY 4: Rick went for an early ride again. I got ready and read in the warmth of the sun again. We wanted to go snorkelling but thought the water might be too cold to be out in it for 4 hours - ...

It seemed a good opportunity to get The Magic Carpet, my Ford F-350 diesel dually, and its onboard Lance camper, Windsong out of mothballs and back on the road in preparation for the summer journey. The trip to Key West was longer than I expected- it's 1300 miles one way from Shreveport- but an enjoyable one, and I had never been to the Keys.
Lacey, of course, went along and enjoyed her first opportunity to get her ...
100 miles to the west, water everywhere and bridges, beaches, parks. Long, long road..we stopped at some scenic stops and also Bahia Honda State Park, recommended to us, which had a very nice long beach and campsites which we checked out. Walked along the beach, saw some jellyfish, reminded us of the Caribbean waters- calm, warm, aqua blue... Along the way there is a section of reduced speed where the endangered Key deer live. Signs everywhere to slow down and not hit a deer. We were on ...
