Thanks Marie for another great 3 night stay at the Carribean House. Marie and her staff are outstanding hosts who make sure even the "little things" are no problem. I called her this past visit to make sure I had locked my door and she made sure I had. "No problem". I have many people ask where I stay and...

We stayed at the Caribbean House for three nights toward the end of an extended tour of Florida. Marie and her staff were extremely helpful. The place has its own quaint charm, though the rooms are somewhat small. This was more than compensated for by both the price and convenience. We ended up parking our Honda CRV with our kayaks...

We stayed here over the weekend (2/19-2-22) for 3 nights. It was clean, comfortable and convenient. Lots of reviews mention the rooms are on the small side and while that's true for 2 people (no pets) it was all we needed. There's a dresser and hangers so you can unpack and not have to revisit a suitcase. And the price...

I have visited Key West multiple times and lived there full time from 2004-2006. Caribbean House is the best deal in town. Are the rooms small, yes. However, the rooms are spotless, the bathrooms are updated, and the deck and grounds are meticulously maintained. Key West is easily one of the most expensive places in the country to visit. You...

Ive stayed here several times over the last ten years or so and never have had a bad experience. The price is one of the lowest in key west. The location is just two blocks from Duval. Parking is not great but that problem is everywhere in key west, find a parking space leave your car there and rent a...

The hosts are very nice and informative. The rooms are about 10x10 with a small bathroom. I suggest an upstairs room as you can hear the people upstairs when we were in the lower room. I would replace the unused armoire with a small table and chairs for easier access around the foot of the bed. 2 people cannot pass...

Rooms are small but very comfortable. Prices cant be beat. Marie is very sweet and accommodating. We needed the room cooler and she was happy to adjust it. Housekeeping was impeccable and discreet. Can't wait to go back!

Great location at a great price! Duval and several nice restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is pet friendly and our little pooch enjoyed the stay as much as we did. The hosts are personable and helpful. The hotel has (a limited number) of guest parking spaces, an invaluable amenity in Key West. If you are looking for a clean,...

Marie and Michel are lovely hosts who have put together the best deal in KW. Caribbean house has all the right qualities: cozy, comfy, clean, central safe location and all for the right $. Parking included, too. You are well within walking distance of EVERYTHING from Hemingway House and Ft Zach to Mallor Sq. Petronia street alone contains some of...

Cozy, clean, comfortable and excellent location on Petronia St just west of the intersection with Thomas St where Big Heaven is located. Booking and billing is efficient and transparent. Marie, an ex-Parisian, warmly welcomed me and it was clear from the start that she and co-owner Michel care that every guest has a comfortable stay. The free coffee and 'honesty...
