Stay away!!!
Stay away!!! I come to Key West twice a year and have never had such a disappointing experience. First negative was that everyone has the same key for the front door and their room. So what's the point?! The worst part was the staff. The guy that works there and is supposed to welcome you was the worst hospitality employee I've ever had to deal with. He was so rude and unprofessional. My sister was able to come along at the last minute so we had one extra person in the room. They basically told us that our stuff will be removed from the room if we don't show proof of another accommodation. He kept on arguing that he knows the law but couldn't show me anything in writing. In the mean time there is a brochure in the room that states that the charge for an extra person per double room is $50. And if this was not enough he accused my sister of having a fake Id. Saying "he has worked in clubs for years". The Id is from RI and we are in our early 30's. I guess this is not the only job he's bad at! The whole house and room have this awful stench of mold and body odor. There are also stains on sheets, decorative pillows,blankets and everything is extremely old. The breakfast was also nothing to be desired-soggy fruit, frozen waffles and cheap coffee. There are many great B&B's and hotels in Key West. Spend the extra $20-30 and have an enjoyable vacation ;)

Classic Key West Bed and Breakfast/Inn done right.
BB is always a great choice for couples. A bit of a home feel but where you are still a guest and are among friends La Pensione did not disappoint. It is along Truman A-1 and adjacent to many of the other great Inn's of Key West so you may hear some additional street traffic. The Inn itself is very tidy and the pool, flowers and grounds that are expertly taken care of. We really enjoyed that our room was open to cool Key West cross breezes and we had a nice porch overlooking the pool. A wonderful place to come home to in the afternoon to relax after a day out and before heading out for the evening. Breakfast is available at more leisurely time so you don't feel you have to run down to not miss breakfast. Set up includes coffee, fruit, waffles, eggs. Newspapers, TV and conversation are always a plus but they also had wonderful areas outside if you just wanted to relax in the morning. Don't be surprised if they have your room turned up by the time you finish breakfast and the staff is amazing with little extras! Tip of the hat for providing us a cooler with ice in our room ! Room size was excellent with additional cabinets and closet for clothing. Excellent bed and the room was nicely appointed with kind of an old school Key West feel. Wonderful sitting chairs on the balcony and in the room. Staff can point you ice, coolers, beach towels, etc, (almost anything you might need). Planning our trip back ! Highly Recommended,

Perfect Centralized Location!
This was our very first trip to Key West and I picked this bed and breakfast based on blind faith of the Expedia reviews that I read from previous guests. I must say that we were not disappointed in the least! The location is perfect! Right in the middle of the island, so we were able to walk in any direction to get to whatever we were wanting to do. Our second day, we decided to rent a scooter from the place just 2 blocks south on Truman and that was a great idea as well. But back to the room... The pictures do not do this place justice! We were greeted as soon as we got there and since it was our first time to the island, she gave us a map and pointed out a few highlights. I crossed my fingers as we opened the door to the room hoping we had made a good choice and was instantly delighted! The air conditioner was cold and the ceiling fans were on so it was instant fresh air as we opened the door. We were in Room 7 (the one with the corner round tower) and it is adorable! Double doors open on to the balcony which adds to the charm! The one thing that I want to make sure that everyone is aware of. I had read a few reviews of issues with the hot water (no hot water, etc). We noticed that the shower hot/cold is backward so you have to go opposite of what you are used to. There are definitely not any issues with no hot water as we had plenty the entire time we were there! This bed and breakfast is a hidden gem and you will not be disappointed!

Holiday inn built in 1896
If you like febbreeze smell in your room, getting to " breakfast" early so you can get a banana ( they run out quickly I was told). And have sand bags for pillows, ceiling fans that talk to you all night, traffic noise as if you were in Times Square, this place is for you!!! Hotels. Com needs to correct their web site - the hotel only has " continental" breakfast - you know, batter to make waffles , some stale bread for toast and hard boiled eggs that are in a bowl of cold water out of the fridge? With only 9 rooms they should make a little more effort. It felt as though they were struggling - on the edge of going out of business. It definitely needs some TLC and an infusion of cash. Good luck.

I was very disappointed with our stay. The finishes are very tired. The curtains in the upstairs hall were very old and dated. The carpeting in the room was very old and stained. The carpeting in the hall and the downstairs was also old and dated. The ceiling fans in the room were covered with dust. The woodwork has been painted white and was chipped everywhere. I have an appreciation for old properties, but this one is in serious need of some maintenance. Also, for the price, I expected a tile or stone shower. It was made out of plastic. We had a front facing room and the noise was excessive as it faces a very busy road. The breakfast was okay, but again, the atmosphere was not great. I was excited to stay in an older property in Key West, but due to the condition and the noise I would not recommend it.
