Our One Night Break
We were there the day before COVID-19 Keys shut down. The staff was great and pointed out all the amenities. The room was very nice but the bed was small for a guy like me at 6'2".

A Grand stay
Stayed at this cozy, convenient 10 room guest house for a weekend Key West wedding celebration...although a bit of "sticker shocked" when reserving, quickly came to know it was a relative good value in this Florida tourist destination hot spot (especially during "high season"). The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and smartly appointed/ fresh, that you'd have thought they had just opened. Parking in front only allows for 6 vehicles, but ample over-flow parking is less than a block away. John, the manager, checked us in upon arrival and was most friendly and informative. Daily Continental breakfast in the breezeway was more than adequate to start the day off right...24 hour coffee was an added plus. Ignore the "sketchy-appearing" neighborhood on initial arrival as, after all, just part & parcel of the normal Key West overall laid back landscape (and experience). Staff is more than helpful recommending plenty tourist things to see, do and dine. Bottom line, the Grand Guesthouse is a great place to hang your hat when exploring Key West. note1: we really appreciated their quiet, no-disruptive, if you're the type who likes to get drunk/party/rowdy, this would Not be a good fit for you. note2: give Jose's Latin Food restaurant nearby on Truman a try if you like authentic Nicaraguan/Latin food...again, ignore the neighbors and "hole-in-the-wall" appearance...the staff was friendly and the food was Fresh & tasty. A local Latin favorite.

Great place to stay!
Liked everything about the guesthouse but thought the breakfast could have been more substantial. The staff was excellent! Property is in a very quiet part of town and within walking distance to most attractions.

A great find
It’s so unassuming we drove by it. Waze said we reached our destination and we both said “we have?” It was perfect for us. A short walk (15 minutes at a leisurely pace) to Duval St. At the Guesthouse you’d never know the craziness of Fantasyfest was going on. A cute community outdoor seating area where breakfast is served or beer and sangria is served in the afternoon. The room was simple, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The staff was super nice. I wasn’t sure where to park because all the spots directly in front were taken. The woman who checked us in moved her car so we could park in front. If I had taken the time to look I’d have noticed that there was plenty of street parking within sight. Would definitely recommend this place.

Fabulous Key West Retreat
What a LOVELY Key West Retreat for our short stay! The Grand Guesthouse was a nice treat at every turn from the accomodating and welcoming staff, the LOVELY accomodations, great local recommendations and even some chairs and an umbrella for an impromptu beach trip. Set away from the hub-bub of Duval St it is in a quiet residential neighborhood but imminently walkable to every destination on the island! We will return here without hesitation on our next trip to Key West.
