    When my husband and I went to this bar, it was easy to see why this place easily gets high marks.  The Pain Killer is one of the best drinks I've had since being in Key West and the services was friendly.  We chatted with the locals and found an excellent Cuban restaurant just down the street.  You HAVE to go!!!

    My boyfriend and I made our first visit to Key West this past weekend (we live in Miami) and stayed here! Before we even got there the manager called us to make sure we were finding our way ok! When we got there we got the most warm greeting. The owner, who also serves as the night time bar tender is the most welcoming and accomodating woman, and GREAT bar tender as well! The bar has delicious and fresh drinks! :) A great way to wind down after a long hot day! Everyone is so kind and helpful. The rooms are adorable and the location is perfect! Its out of the way of the "touristy" areas, but still on Duval and in walkable distance to almost anywhere you would want to go! We will definitely be making this our go-to place when we want to get back down to key west! LOVED it! We can't say enough good things about it!

    There aren't enough good things to say about this B&B. We loved it! Took a few friends from philly who were visiting us in Miami and drove down for a night in KW. The rooms were big and clean with icy A/C. Loved the continental breakfast, bar and comfy beds!!! The breakfast in the AM was great with fresh squeezed OJ and fresh fruit as well as cereal and bagels, but honestly the star of the show is the fact that we came downstairs and had a drink before heading out and were able to wrap up our night with a drink before bed! We will be back!

    The best in every way but one. The walls are so thin, and Duvall is such a loud street. There's not much that can be done about it, but we had a difficult time sleeping. Great people, and great location, though.

    Yes! Go see Bahama Bob, have him pour you a rum boat (flight). Fantastic. Both the Dark & Stormy, and the Painkiller are highly recommended. 206 and counting rums available.

    I also recommend a shot of Bob's Root Juice, which is a 151 Rum infused with all sorts of spices.

    Once we found this comfortable, quiet little bar, we went back daily during our 10-day trip to KW. Great, fun bartenders, and by far the best rum bar (only 180 varieties to choose from) on the island! We tried the "Root Juice" - holy crap. Great dessert drink = Painkiller, actually made with Pusser's - hadn't seen this authentic drink since Annapolis at the Pusser's bar there! Highly recommend this place! It's on the quieter end of Duval, so nice for beginning or ending the evening!

    Absolutely phenomenal!

    I just got back from staying here and I have vowed to stay at the Speakeasy every time I visit Key West.

    John was hilarious and super accommodating when checking us in and all of the bartenders were amazing. It is the perfect location right on Duval Street and the room rates were a great deal.

    Great drinks, great staff, and great location!!!

    This is a great B&B for Key West.  The rooms are great, clean, and very comfortable.  The staff is what really sets them apart.  Everyone there is so nice and goes out of their way to help and make you feel relaxed.  The Rum Bar is so great too!  Make sure to have Bob make you a Bark & Stormy!

    I absolutely love this place!!! We found it online at a reasonable price in a last minute trip we planned from Miami to Key West on my bday.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because I just don't care for the little old kitchenette in the tiny room.  Get rid of that and although the room is small, it would look more new and spacious.  Other than that a great experience!!!!!  Great location, quiet B&B on duval near all the main spots.  The Rum Bar is the coolest little bar I've been to in Duval in a while.  Small, intimate, a place where you feel everyone knows your name.  The bartenders are a hoot, especially Bob.  But all of them are great.  Delicious fresh muddled mojitos and tasty rum runners.  Def. best mojito in the area!!! (I'll do a separate review for the rum bar itself).  Staying here is worth it just for the rum bar alone!!

    This is a clean B&B with a very comfy bed.  We got a room tucked away in the back, small but SOOO cute.  note, there's no pool - if you're good with no pool then this is the place for you!

    We will definitely stay there again!

    My boyfriend and I made our second trip to Key West together in June. Our first choice for B&B, the place we stayed in the first time we went together, had no vacancy for the weekend we planned on going, so we reluctantly searched for another place that could possibly be as good as our first.

    I Googled bed & breakfasts in Key West and stumbled upon the Speakeasy. We were immediately taken by its location, right on Duval Street but yet not so "in the mix" of all the social madness that can occur at times. When I began to read the reviews, it seemed so many people were happy with their experience there, and I learned that the inn had an interesting part in history as well. All these factors, along with the inn's apparent charm, won us over right away.

    Our personal experience there confirmed all the great reviews we had read. We had a warm welcome at the bar, where we checked in and ordered a drink at the same time! We stayed in their smallest room, which proved to be more than enough space for us. It was perfectly cozy with an oh-so-comfortable bed. The following morning, I walked over to the bar to see if I could grab some breakfast for my boyfriend to have in bed. The woman who welcomed me asked our names, which definitely made it a more personal experience. When I told her I was looking to take some food back to the room, she looked for a tray to give me to help me in taking everything in one trip.

    All in all, we were very pleased with our stay at the Speakeasy Inn. We cannot wait to stay there again!

    I really loved this place. As small as it is it was our first and most favorite stop of the night during our crawl down Duval. Seems to be kind of a local hangout. Even though we had been treated rudely at our hotel for looking like college students this place welcomed us with open arms. We chatted up both the bar tender and some the locals, all around good time.

    The drinks are reasonable and quite tasty. Be sure to stop in!

    During our trip to Key West we went on many quests. Finding the best conch fritter, Pina Colada & Mojito. The first is a useless task. Being a native of Florida their is nothing like a conch fritter from your grandma's kitchen. The second was found in this random ass bar from what looked like a Slurpee machine, damn good though. The third, here at the Speakeasy Inn.

    After taking a long walk to the southernmost point we found sanctuary at the bottom of a rummy delicious glass. Minty, refreshing, limey goodness, all within a very tiny bar, poured by a California native that fell in love with a lovely island. We had a great time rehydrating (so to speak) at the Inn.

    A trip to this bar is not complete with out a shot of root juice.

    Man up and have some.

    This is a place to stay with a bar below.

    A lot of Rums to choose from, but they also have a card that have the common drinks for those of us not well versed in Rum drinks.

    Bartender was friendly.
    Drinks were awesome!
    Bathrooms were a shock, super clean, awesome soaps and lotions and salt scrubs. Smelled super clean for being in a bar.

    Bar, Table, and outdoor seating with umbrellas.

    Fun time. I stopped in here a few times during my 10 day visit.

    Bikers seem to stop in pretty frequently but are a funloving crowd.

    My boyfriend and I had the greatest time at the Speak Easy Inn. The rooms were clean and taken care of. The owner and workers treat you like friends and family and you can not help but to love this place. They have an awesome breakfast waiting for you every morning and on the last morning we were there, we were the only ones left and they made sure we had exactly what we wanted. The rum bar is great and so is Bob. We always found ourselves heading back to the rum bar even with all of the other bars on the street. This bed and breakfast is on Duval street but it is closer to the "quiet end"; it really works out well. You are honestly able to walk everywhere (which we did) but Bob also gave us great recommendations on the best scooter rentals, restaurants and boat rentals. We can not wait to go back.

    p.s. the owner's home baked goods are to die for!

    My cousin and I stayed in Room A at the Speakeasy for a girls' weekend. It was exactly what we needed. It is the quieter part of Duval while still being located right on Duval Street. Clean, comfy and friendly. I will definitely stay here again.

    This really was the most perfect place to stay during our first trip to Key West! It's location is closer to the southern most point but close enough to walk to everything. We were checked in by Bobbie and she was more than helpful and provided us with great information. All the ladies were very helpful but Bobbie was our go to gal. She made us feel very welcome! We stayed in Room 3A and it was absolutely perfect. The room was very cute and came with a kitchenette stocked with cold water. The bed was very comfortable as well. The morning breakfast is so great. The owner bakes fresh coffee cakes along with fresh squeezed orange juice. The "morning glory" cake is soooo good! There are of course all of the morning basics you could possibly want. The Rum Bar is just awesome! Jill was our bartender most of the time and she was outstanding! It doesn't take long for them to recognize you and treat you like one of their own. The quality of their drinks are worth every penny! Overall, we really can't say enough good things about this place. We have found our spot in Key West and will surely be back!

    My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary here.  This b&b is amazing!  Our room,  1a, was a great size and had a wonderful balcony over looking duval. It was impeccably clean and convenient.  The rum bar was a great addition.  Deliciously crafted drinks and great prices. The entire staff was incredibly friendly.  Early check in was not a problem and they held our bags for us for a few hours the day we were leaving.  Location was ideal to attractions on duval and a short bike ride to a nice beach (smathers). Overall 5 star experience.  Stay here before you stay at one of the big chains. You can't beat it!  Thanks Speakeasy!!

    We stayed here for the new year's weekend and I couldn't have been more satisfied.  Great location, amazing drinks, and spotlessly clean rooms.  Barbara and her staff truly know what customer service is all about.

    Awesome little bar, right on the strip. Comfortable seating. Friendly service. Great prices and a powerful Rum Runner and Mojito. Perfect place to sit and take a pause while moving up the strip. I stayed at Southernmost on the Beach, so this was a great stop on the way up Duval.

    My boyfriend and I stayed here over this past weekend for our birthdays. I found this hotel on the BringFido.com website, which will later explain my 3 star rating....

    The hotel itself was quant and well taken care of, and so was the Rum Bar attached. The room was very small, but neat and bright. In my opinion the nightly rate was a bit expensive for the size of the room, especially off-season. Also, they don't have on site parking, but do offer a free lot a few blocks away. The hotel was at the quieter end of Duval which was great. You could still walk everywhere, there was still some action, but it wasn't in the middle of the rowdier areas. It was also a quick walk to the Southernmost Beach, the dog beach, and some great little shops and cafes. We enjoyed going out one night and spending one night on the front patio doing some people watching! We also brought our bikes; there are plenty of places to lock them up on premises.

    My 3 star rating comes from this: I sought out hotels that we could bring our dogs. I found them on BringFido.com which lists their pet rules/regulations. I filtered based on 2 things- no weight limit (we have larger dogs), and ability to have 2 (which we do). Speakeasy's website had no mention of pets being allowed or prohibited, so I emailed them directly stating I needed a pet friendly room. I received a response saying that they had a room available and that there would be a $50 pet fee. No problem. I responded asking what their pet rules were and if they had a weight limit, just to confirm again. The response was, our rules are that your pets are well behaved, that you leave a number we can reach you in case they bark, etc., and again $50 fee. No problem. I paid the deposit and we were booked.

    We arrived and began to unload. The woman then came and asked for our credit card again because she "didn't realize I had two dogs". I reminded her of my email asking of their regulations and her response again was, "I didn't know you had two. It's $50 per dog". I told her that I understood, but that was never stated to me. My boyfriend is a bit more easy-going than me, and paid the fee. Unfortunately, I'm still a bit frustrated. Maybe she misunderstood me asking in the email, but considering there are no rules on their site, that they're advertising "no limits, $50 fee only" for per friendly rooms on BringFido.com , it seems that they should divulge that information to anyone with a pet friendly room.

    All this being said, I'm trying to be as fair as possible. This is a great little spot for a romantic weekend, but probably not if you're bringing your pet. I considered another hotel in my search that charged less for pets and had a pool, so I would have made out better with that choice had I been given more specific information. It wasn't quite worth the money in the end, but it is a very nice choice for a couple or gals getaway, etc... minus Fido.

    I really can't say enough great things about this b&b. It really was the perfect place to stay during my two day trip to Key West.

    Located on Duval St, but not right in the middle of the action. Near the southernmost point, it's only a short walk to all the bars and restaurants closer to Mallory Square on Duval. I liked being walking distance from the bars, but far enough away that our stay was quiet and peaceful.

    Yes, this b&b is on top of a rum bar. This bar is a quieter talk-with-friends-over-a-fantastic-rum-drink than a take-shots-of-rum-and-dance-on-tables bar. We weren't disturbed by the noise at all, but probably because we didn't make it back to bed until after the rum bar closed. The complementary painkiller drink you receive on arrival is phenomenal. It's like a light piña colada with fresh coconut and nutmeg. Mojitos and rum punch were also spot on. If you're looking for a strong drink, order a "Bark and Stormy". Bacardi 151 never tasted so good!

    I was 100% satisfied with the room. It was clean and tastefully decorated like how I imagine a beach house bedroom would look. Our room had a fridge (stocked with cold water bottles), bathroom with a shower and tub, and a TV.

    Fresh fruit and pastries, bagels, cereal, fresh J, hard boiled eggs-- I was happily full after breakfast both mornings.

    Everyone working at the Speakeasy Inn was so welcoming and helpful. The bartenders were so friendly while they worked their cocktail magic. The people were a cherry on top of a fantastic stay.

    Stayed at the Speakeasy for 2 nights! Room 2 back upper level was really sweet and private. Bed was super comfortable. Fridge, microwave and coffee pot are always an added bonus. 6 free bottles of water a day. Can't beat that, especially as hot as it was. Room was very cool! Nice seating area outside the room. Check in was easy and Bobbi & Wendy were super nice and welcoming.  The bartenders at the rum bar below were another story which will get a review of its own. Thanks Speakeasy, for the comforts of home during our stay in key west!

    Second time to stay here.  Will be tough for us to stay anywhere else.  People and accommodations are excellent.  Throw in a top notch rum bar on site with great people tending bar and you have a great place.
