We recently stayed at the Cypress House Hotel for 7 nights in celebration of our 10th wedding anniversary. We had a King room with porch, and loved our room. The size was perfect, although I did have an issue with all the light at night. We live out in the country, so I’m accustomed to total darkness at night. The front porch light of our room was always on and is bright coming in those front windows. The last few nights, we closed the outside front shutters, which helped some, but it still had a lot of light coming in the other windows in the room, which we couldn’t access the shutters to. Curtains would do a lot to help with this. Also, the ceiling fan only had 2 working speeds, low or high; just like Goldilocks, low was too low, and high was too high. Other than those two things, we were very pleased with our room and the hotel as a whole. Breakfast and liming hour were very nice amenities. All the staff that we met were very friendly and helpful, and all were knowledgeable about things around town as well.

The location of this hotel was extremely convenient for us. We were only a short walk away from the grocery store Fausto’s, and we also spent a lot of our time in the A&B Marina area, so a very short walk there as well. Our favorite restaurant there was the Boathouse; we went there almost every day. Of course Sloppy Joe’s is a must go when in Key West, and we went there once or twice; same thing, it was a very short walk, so very convenient.

The location of this hotel was superb, and the value that we got, I think was excellent. I would definitely recommend it to anyone planning to go to Key West, and we will definitely be booking this hotel for our next stay! Knowing how amazing of a hotel this is takes a lot of pressure off of future trip planning, because we already know where we want to stay!

I had the most amazing experience at the Chelsea House Hotel. The staff was very nice and cordial. The room was clean and comfortable. The best thing about it, was that it was right in front of the pool, which I found very convenient. Great location, near the main street. I loved waking up to a nice breakfast every day. I loved the hotel colonial structure. Not enough words to describe my stay. I highly recommend it.

Key West has always been a special place for me.  I began visiting KW around 2003 with my then new husband.  We loved KW and made it down several times for celebrations, relaxation, or just to have some fun together.  My husband and I were married just shy of 12 years before he died of a very rare cancer this past Valentines Day, 2016.  He was 3 weeks shy of his 36th birthday.  My husbands parents who also live in Florida asked to keep our 7 year old twin girls for 10 days.  I decided to take a few of my child free days and to head down to KW before picking them up in Southern Florida and flying them back to Michigan.  I needed to feel close to my late husband, and KW is a place that lets me do that.  We have so many great memories here.

I work for the largest hotel brand in the world.  I know good service when I see it.  This last trip in to KW I was not able to get a room at the brand that I work for, as it was pretty last minute and at peak times.  My friend loves bed & breakfasts, boutique type hotels.  We read good reviews on the Cypress House Hotel and decided to give it a go…  boy was that a GREAT decision!

When we arrived we had the pleasure of meeting Scott.  He helped with our luggage, gave us a cocktail even though we had already missed the nightly cocktail hour, gave us a tour of the property, and got us to our room easily.  Scott was more than helpful our entire stay.  He is so pleasant, and I would hire him at one of my hotels in a second!

Upon entering the room I was immediately impressed.  It was VERY clean, modern, spacious, and cool.  There was Champagne on ice waiting for me for my birthday which my friend and I quickly enjoyed.  We were able to enjoy the more than continental breakfast each day, and adult cocktail hour at night.  We were not sure if we would use the pool or not…  well, we ended up using it every night!  It was clean and just the right temperature to cool off after a long day.  One night my friend and I wanted a snack but didn’t want to leave the pool, so the younger kid that was working the desk that night was so gracious and brought us chips and salsa from the fridge.  This service and all the service we received while at the Cypress House Hotel was TOP NOTCH!  Not only have I told many friends and family about this hotel, but I will continue to stay for my future visits even though I have a hotel right on the water at Mallory Square.  Am I impressed?  YES!

Thank you to the Cypress House, the staff, and beautiful KW for a much needed return trip that did not disappoint.

If you’re looking for a great hotel at a good price and amazing service, this is the one for you. The newly renovated rooms are plush and comfortable and the lobby staff were personable and customer focused. Added bonus – the hotel is just a few blocks from the center of town and Duval Street.

My husband and I decided to book a last minute trip to Key West and came across the Key Lime Inn. Super cute, quaint, and had that Key West tropical charm that we were looking to find. When we arrived the staff was super pleasant and very helpful – offered to call cabs, set up reservations at restaurants or anything else we needed during our stay. Anytime I saw any employees on the grounds they were always smiling and saying Hello. After we checked in, we were excited to find that we had our own little cottage – one big room with a Queen size bed, shower/bathroom, tv, and a small deck and outdoor patio area. Not only that, we were able to park the car right in front of the cottage and were only a few steps from unloading/loading our bags. There were chickens, chicks and tons of iguanas on the grounds and in the trees..one really big iguana greeted us daily. Continental breakfast is served outside by the pool and was always clean and fully stocked. The hotel is also located on a main road, about a 3 min walk to Duval Street & a 10 min walk to Mallory Square for the nightly sunset celebration. Plus, it’s only a 1-2 min walk to an awesome scooter rental store (The Moped Hospital) that really makes for getting around the island quicker, easier and inexpensive (parking is sparse around the island and it’s all metered, we walked/scootered to every location and didn’t move the car until we checked out). Would definitely book here again before booking with a regular hotel chain and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

We arrived and were immediately greeted warmly and efficiently by the receptionist.  She was very professional and knowledgeable about the area: places to visit and restaurants to eat in.  Our room was very clean and tastefully decorated. One suggestion would be to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The bathroom had a modern wet room to shower in and was a good size. We had a brilliant time in Key West and would recommend the Lighthouse Court Hotel.

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Key Lime Inn, and had a wonderfully, relaxing and comfortable stay. Our poolside room was gorgeous, and all the staff were very helpful. They even surprised us with a bottle of bubbly for our anniversary!! I would definitely stay there again; In fact, I’m planning to when we come for our brothers wedding in February!! And, I would highly recommend his place to everyone, you won’t be disappointed!

My husband and I just spent a few days celebrating our anniversary at the wonderful Key Lime Inn in Key West, Fl. The room was beautiful, set right by the pool, and was kept spotless by housekeeping during our entire stay. We arrived to a chilled bottle of bubbly courtesy of the friendly staff, to help kick off our celebration.

Breakfast was included and set out by the pool each morning; but, if you’re into some local fare, try Five Brothers Cuban Cafe for some delicious fresh baked goods! You can rent a bike just up the road from the hotel that’ll take you there and to all the other many delightful spots just a short ride from your room😊❤️

We had a great time here for Lobster Fest weekend.  Jacob couldn’t be more pleasant and accommodating to us.  Check in and check out were easy and the morning breakfasts and “liming” hours were enjoyable. Everyone went above and beyond to make us happy.  I would definitely visit again, as this is the second time we’ve stayed in one of their Historic Key West Inns hotels.

We have stayed at the Lighthouse Court Hotel before this vacation, and loved it and this is why we chose to come back here again. We love the hotel, the staff and the laid back relaxing court yard. Great rooms, the bar is great, great breakfast, love the pool and the grounds. The friendly cat and the hen and chicks just all add to it. Very friendly. Love the fact you’re not far from Duval St and attractions. We look forward to our next trip to the Lighthouse Court and we highly recommend it to our friends and family.
