      Historical Traveler Reviews The Paradise Inn Key West

      The Paradise Inn is Paradise!


      My husband and I stayed at this inn for three nights while we were in Key West this summer. The inn was great. It was really beautiful and the pool, whirlpool and gardens provided an incredible place to relax - and they're open 24 hours a day. The breakfast was good and the staff was very helpful and friendly, and they also had great recommendations for retaurants, activities and the like. The inn is also close (within walking distance) to all the major attractions in Key West without being in center of all the commotion on Duval Street. I highly recommend splurging on this inn.

      Private, Tropical, Very well run


      Stay here you'll love it! Guaranteed!

      Beautifully landscaped tropical paradise. Private, quiet and very clean.

      Not only did they allow us to place our luggage in the lobby after check out, they even provided us with towels to dry off as we waited for a few hours in the pool for our departure time.

      Great honeymoon spot


      My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the inn.

      We spent 8 wonderful days there and were very happy with the service and the accomadations.

      The staff was wonderful! The grounds and suites are beautiful and the on-site parking was a definite plus!



      We stayed for a over a month. Very nice. Will be glad when all the Key West chickens are Sunday dinner. Otherwise, a perfect place with a great pool and hot tub.

      Very Pleased


      Very friendly personel, beutiful rooms and grounds. We never had a parking issue. Everything you want to see, is within walking distance of the INN...however the ocean is about a 10 min walk away. The lure of duval is one street parallel. This allows for access to all the fun, but also gives you the option of getting away from all the action. I felt like our room was constantly being cleaned...a great thing. The staff cleaned around our schedule and always greeted us with a smile. They have a nice little pool and an even better "Tucked Away" hot tub, open all night. Neatly maintained vegetation made your feel like you were in your own private oasis. There were no private balconies. The main one, that wrapped around multiple units, had ample seating and nearly no traffic. Our room was BIG, Clean and Quiet, and we booked the smallest room avaliable at the INN. Would recommend to others.

      Very quaint, lush, clean, pleasant


      The Paradise Inn was just what my title says. The greeting area/lobby was very nice and a good indicator of things to come. The staff was very polite and accomodating; I was able to get a regular rate the last weekend of the season and they let us leave our bags in the office to kill a few hours before our flight after check out. The landscaping was very nice (inspiring might be a better word), the room was very spacious (surprisingly so), the bathroom was very nicely appointed, and when the housekeeper came to our door for turndown, I was pleasantly surprised (haven't experienced that service in years!). All-in-all very much worth the money and I would definitely consider staying there again.

      The place to stay in the Conch Republic


      The service is outstanding, the rooms are comfortable, and the hot tub is, well, hot! This is a great place to stay and highly recommended to all who are looking for a place smack in the middle of town. Easy access to Duval St, Old Town, etc.

      Enjoyed the Royal Suite


      We stay during the low season in the Royal Suite. It was a beautiful layout with two bedrooms and in room bathrooms. The pool was in a beautiful setting and the hot tub too. The grounds truly feel like paradise. We were there late June 2003 and the misquitos were really buzzing and biting- be ready. The suite for this price is OK for up to two or three nights but if you intend on staying longer in Key West (like a week) I would suggest renting an entire cottage with furnishings. While this room was nice and spacious it still had a hotel feel (though no coffee maker !?!!)

      An Elegant Oasis


      Away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street, the Paradise Inn can only be described as tranquil. We stayed in one of the historic cottages and it was lovely - hardwood floors, pleasing color scheme, quality furnishings and plush linens. We didn't take the time to enjoy the pool because we were recovering from a week long diving trip and we also had our 3 month old baby with us. The staff is of course excellent. Overall, our experience was special - we felt that we had spent our money wisely - if you visit the Paradise Inn and don't agree I would be very surprised. We'll definitely return.

      Loved the Paradise Inn!


      My husband and I spent 3 days at the Paradise Inn, Key West, FL and thoroughly enjoyed it! The location was excellent...we never needed our car the entire weekend! Our "suite" was actually a cottage of our own with a white picket fence that was so quaint and charming. Rather than feeling like you're in a big hotel, you feel more secluded since it's your own cottage away from the main building. (I think they have 3 cottages available.) The people at the desk were so nice and more than willing to sit down and talk to us about the best restaurants, attractions and entertainment. The heated pool and jacuzzi are open 24 hours a day. I would stay here again and definately will recommend it to my family and friends.

Each motel room has a lock box next to it, the nice lady gives me the combination and in the span of a minute I am in!

After that excitement we dozed on and off on the beach making sure to remind each other to roll over regularly. We had enough of the sun so we then went on the hunt for some food. We thought we'd grab a little bite to share before we went to meet up for tea. There was three of us so we ordered a nachos and hummus dip. When it came out it was ridiculous. Needless to ...

These biscuits have the texture and consistency of scones. The gravy on board took the guise of a thick sauce. Flavours varied between bacon, cheese and brown flavour!!! Quite a tasty alternative to cornflakes, toast and marmalade!!

      We arrived into Key West around 11. Key West is the Southern most point on the continental USA. There is a Naval base there but their main business is tourism. Cruise ships dock there and people like me visiting.

      It was a definite gem in Key West.
