Let’s start with you can pay a lot more and end up with a lot less. My wife and I, along with our best friends, arrived via the Key West Express and the hotel was a piece of cake to get to. Directly across from the Hemingway House and next to the Lighthouse (thus the name), and upon entering the reception area we were treated like we had stayed there numerous times.

The front desk staff could not have been more hospitable and friendly. We had a bit of a mix up with our reservation but fortunately your wonderful manager, Abby, came to our rescue. Our rooms were ready early, and even if they hadn’t been, we had the option of using the pool and the bar area. The grounds were clean and tidy and every staff member treated us as old friends. The porch swings were comfortable and relaxing and the drinks were cool and refreshing. The pool ,while warm, still provided relief from the heat. Did we mention how wonderful your entire staff, especially your manger Abby, was? Abby made a point to come around to make sure everything was AOK for us. The rooms were very clean and provided everything we needed. The proximity to Duval Street and various attractions made staying at the Lighthouse Court Hotel the perfect choice.

We look forward to returning Key West and staying with our friends at the Lighthouse Court.

I have stayed at Lighthouse Court three times now and will never stay anywhere else. First, staff is extremely friendly from receptionists to housekeeping staff. They make you feel very warm and welcome during your stay. Gives all you need to know about the island and what amazing adventures you can get into. The grounds are absolutely amazing and feel so secluded in your own private oasis. Highly recommend staying with this wonderful group.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Chelsea House. There was ample parking space in the 3 designated areas and the check in process was quick and effortless.

We were in a second floor room facing a main road and I a little apprehensive about street noise but pleasantly surprised with how quiet the room was. The hotel grounds were well kept and clean. The pool area was very relaxing and quiet.

The only complaint that we could come up with would be the lack of surface space in the room. Suitcases had to be placed on the floor and there was very little space to hang clothes. Bath area was cluttered with our things due to lack of shelving or surface space.

Over all, our room and stay was very pleasant and we would book with Chelsea House in the future.

I was very pleased with the amenities this property offered (wifi, parking, pool, breakfast, dog friendly, etc). The staff was overall very kind and helpful. The property and Expedia’s check-out time are not the same. It was embarrassing that someone from the hotel came to tell us that we needed to check out when we were in the pool and there were other people around.

Short but to the point. The property was very nice and in a great location. I only have two complaints. The TV was ridiculously small for the size of the room.  Secondly, we had some difficulty getting hot water in our room, too many faucet adjustments just to get it to warm. Those are my only complaint. The staff members were very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Would I stay there again?  I’ve stayed at some of your other properties and will try some of the others.

This was our 4th stay at the Key Lime Inn, I have stayed at other hotels in Key West but keep coming back. This time we really hooked up and were in a King cottage next to the pool, we did not want to leave for sure.  Always clean and a great staff on hand, great parking available.  We love to walk and this is located perfectly for walking all over the historic area.  Also near a bicycle and moped rental location.

We will be back.

My husband and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn from Sat June 28-Weds July 2, and we had a nice time for the most part. The room was fine, but we could not open our balcony door upon check in. Fortunately after we reported it, it was quickly fixed. Our room was only serviced once our entire stay–that may have been due to the fact that we tended to do activities very early in the morning, returning to the room around 1-2pm for a rest, which perhaps did not give housekeeping enough time to clean the room in the morning. I also would have preferred for breakfast to be available a little earlier in the morning–maybe around 7, as our morning activities started around 8am, so we missed the breakfast offered. Service was really friendly at the hotel–we got some good restaurant recommendations and we found the staff to be very helpful.

I had read about the hotel on the fodor.com website and had always had good luck with their findings, so I booked this hotel from their review.

I was overjoyed with the accommodations and location!!! This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is a haven for relaxation. It is also nice that the hotel was 2 blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street.

The staff was wonderful and extremely friendly. There was a nice variety in the continental breakfast. The pool was a nice size. The parking lot was full when we arrived, but that was fine since we could park in the adjoining sister hotel - The Chelsea House.

Definitively a pleasure!  Highly recommend!!

This was my second stay at the Merlin Guesthouse and both times I could not have been any happier with my experiences!  From the minute I booked online and called to confirm, the staff went above and beyond to answer any questions and make me feel welcome.  This stay was for 3 nights and we arrived early and our cottage was ready for us and they allowed us to check-in early.  The cottage was very clean and spacious and perfect for a party of 4.  Each morning we were able to go to the pool area for a delicious spread of muffins, pastries, orange juice and coffee.  I would also like to mention Kenneth by name.  He was always very friendly and had plenty of restaurant suggestions when I asked him.  Also, the location is perfect.  Only a block from Duval Street so the walk is very short and easy, but also you don’t get any of the noise or craziness of Duval Street at night!  Overall we were thrilled with this stay and we are looking forward to booking another trip at the Merlin Guesthouse as soon as possible!
