For the sixth or seventh time in a row, our “group” stayed at the Cypress House during our annual Key West Labor Day weekend.

And as always, from the remodeled rooms to the pool to the staff (thanks Dennis), the stay was excellent. Of course, you can’t beat their location one block away from Duval! Still miss the old happy hour (more food and drink than current regime) though. But for the money, location and amenities, you can’t beat Cypress House.

We’ll be back next year and with more friends!

The staff was great, very knowledgeable about the area. The room was clean and tidy with some beautiful updates throughout. Check in and Check out were very easy. I would recommend the hotel to a friend.

We only stayed one night at the Chelsea House. It was a nice room, except bathroom was a little too small. We had a balcony room on the 3rd floor with a beautiful view of trees and the pool next door. Breakfast was great by the pool.

Staff was also very welcoming. Answered all of my questions and even recommended some great spots. The manager was also great.

The staff is amazing, knowledgeable and so friendly.  Checking in and out was a breeze.  Melissa told us about the best places to go and gladly made reservations for us.  For drinks (Camille’s for their bacon-infused Bloody Mary’s), meals (Better than Sex for dessert) and sunset cruise (Sebago has the best bang for the buck). She really made our trip a special getaway. The individual cabin was beautiful and very clean.  We loved the modern furniture and comfortable layout of the room.   Due to the very warm weather, we were not able to enjoy the cute private patio.  The grounds of the hotel are immaculate and what a bonus to have a parking lot at a centrally located hotel. Very few hotels have this. The pool area was perfect for a dip and it was thoughtful to have noodles for the guest to use. The included continental breakfast was just what we wanted – eggs, yogurt, cereal, bagels, juice, coffee, muffins and other baked goods. My only complaint is that the a/c unit in our room was a bit loud.  We will definitely recommend the hotel to others and look forward to coming back!

Our stay at the Key Lime Inn was wonderful. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room service was very good and very accommodating. The free continental breakfast provided was very good. Free parking was a great amenity. The Inn was in a good location two blocks from Duval Street nearer to the Southernmost area of Duval. Unfortunately my two favorite restaurants were located on the Northern side. I would recommend making reservations at “Latitudes” for lunch and take advantage of Happy Hour at the “Boat House”. My wife and I really enjoyed the food at both places. Key Lime Pie at Kermit’s was also good. A nice and different dessert place was “Better Than Sex” that is located very near the Inn. The Inn is lovely. Wish we had more time to relax. So much to do on the Island and surrounding water. I would recommend the Inn to friends.

Totally enjoyed our stay at the Merlin Guesthouse.  Everyone was very friendly, breakfast great and the spa was perfect.  Anxious to go back when the weather is a little cooler.

My family of four was delighted with our stay. The room was spacious, well appointed and clean. In terms of front desk service, Kaya was especially thoughtful in supporting us in pre-check in and post check out due to timing issues. We will certainly recommend this hotel based on the level of service and accommodations provided.

The property is beautiful, and first thing we noticed stepping into our room is a hand-painted coconut with our names and wedding date on it from Mary Simmons…what hotel does that!?! That was SO special to us we loved it (it’s already being displayed in our living room) We had our wedding party stay there as well and we loved how every room was different and unique. They were amazing to work with and could not have asked for a better place to stay. When we return to Key West we will, without a doubt, stay at Merlin Guesthouse and no where else! :)

We were on the second floor of the hotel for 4 nights (Friday night-Tuesday morning).   Our plane was actually a little late and the front desk called to check on us, which was nice (you don’t get that kind of personal attention at one of the chain hotels- I think her name was Robin. Very personable and gave us a lot of suggestions for dinner, drinks, etc).

Our room was very quiet overall, and was clean when we arrived. The front desk also called to have bikes delivered to the hotel for us. The continental breakfast was fine- plenty of bread, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, milk, coffee, OJ.  My boyfriend had some mojitos at the mojito bar downstairs and said they were good.  Overall it was a nice stay and even one of other guests mentioned they had stayed at 2 other places besides this one, and Lighthouse was their favorite.
