Recently stayed 5 nights at Lighthouse Court Hotel (LCH). Appears to be longer than most stays, since we continually saw newbies at breakfast and in the pool area. Our first visit to Key West and for the most part, we made a great choice where to stay. I think the location of LCH is what won us over. You can hang out all you want in the mayhem that Duval Street offers, but to be able to walk home to the “quiet” end of town each evening was the deal breaker.
Room was good, modern amenities, have stayed in fancier, but that is not what you’re there for. Booked the king room so that we could have a mini fridge. So nice to be able to keep a stash of bottled water on hand. Pool was good, pool bar was ok, but wasn’t expecting anything fantastic…..if they didn’t have the bar, probably would have bought my own liquor and mixed my own. One thing that was odd was that upon check-in, you’re given a buy-one g get-one drink coupon, but the coupon only is valid up to $8, and not sure I saw anything but beer on the bar menu below $8, so they end up charging you the difference……OK, so I bought one drink and paid $1 for the second….not a big deal, but technically not buy-one, get-one….
The only downside we did have is oddly enough location related. I know I spoke about how nice it was to be able to escape the circus that Duval Street can be, but we spent a lot of time walking between the hotel and the west end where it seems that most activities were happening (Mallory Square, the marina). So, plan ahead and show up with good walking shoes if those destinations interest you.By: Mike on April 10, 2017
