The Historic Tavernier Hotel was built in 1928, the centerpiece of the commercial district of Tavernier, as a hotel and tea room. Built by H.S. 'Mac' McKenzie, McKenzie moved to Tavernier from Miami with the original Standard Oil man, O.M. Woods. Initially, the hotel was built as a theater, in anticipation of entertaining the WWI veterans building the highway. The theater was not successful, and it was converted into a hotel. The building has been preserved in its original glory as it was in 1928.

Once a Standard Oil gas station, the Tavernier Tea Room, now the office and registration and reception area for the Tavernier Hotel and KeysCaribbean Resorts and Marinas.

In keeping with the building's historic past, we have not deviated from its original structure. We have, however, added, guest friendly amenities including pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen televisions with cable, free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, as well as a courtyard for our guests to relax. We have available on request, blow dryers, irons, ironing boards, and incidentals you may have forgotten. Café Moka has joined our complex, offering various roasted coffees, French pastries and sandwiches.

The Historic Tavernier Inn is unique, with a rich history in the Florida Keys
