We just returned from a stay in Key West at the Lighthouse Court Hotel. This is our third time there and we will definitely stay there again when we come back to Key West. The hotel desk staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Actually everyone that works there is very friendly. The grounds of the hotel are just incredibly beautiful. The rooms are very clean and quaint and each one is different.

Love sitting outside and eating the continental breakfast that is served each morning. And there’s nothing like a cold refreshing drink by the pool. We love the location of this hotel, right across the street from the Hemingway house. It’s far enough away from the action and loudness of Duval Street but close enough to walk there each day. Get some bikes as soon as you get to the hotel and explore all the island has to offer. Easy bike ride to Fort Zachary Beach and Mallory Square for the incredible sunsets. Awesome time. See you again soon.

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.

From the welcome desk to housekeeping to groundskeeping, the staff is welcoming, helpful, accessible, and smiling.  The grounds are private, cozy, beautifully maintained, and a quiet retreat from the bustle of busy main streets. The rooms are comfortable and carefully appointed.  Every need is anticipated and seen to.  As a guest, I felt well regarded, welcomed, and cared for.  I hope we can return.

We can’t wait to come back. This was my 2nd stay here.  The last time I had a separate cottage. I’m hoping next time I will as well.

Chelsea House Hotel was a great place to stay. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The staff was very knowledgeable about the local area and recommended some great places to eat. We recommend trying Better than Sex dessert restaurant when you stay here. It was a fun experience. We enjoyed the second pool a lot by our room. Breakfast choices were the same every day but it was adequate. Our room was very spacious and the bed was really comfortable. We will definitely come back and recommend staying here for anyone visiting Key West. You can walk everywhere from Chelsea House. Loved the beautiful setting and the quiet area all around the hotel.

Friendly and courteous staff.  Room clean and pool area well kept.  Was quiet and relaxing on the grounds.  There were tables around outside to sit in the sun or shade.  Will visit again.  Easy walk to everything in the area.

My best friend and I took the KeyWest Express boat to the Chelsea House Hotel as we were referred to this property by another friend. It was very nice and very clean. Super close to shopping and dining.  What stood out to us the most was the excellent front desk help this place had!  Richard was FANTASTIC!  He went above and beyond with explaining fun things for my friend and I to do while we were there. He offered to make several reservations for us and gave us all sorts of tips on how to get around. He was truly a lot of fun to talk to and made our trip to Key West a really delightful one! We will definitely go back!

Only complain I have at all was that there were 3 staff members that leaned over the railing right outside our door on Sunday morning, it seemed like they were waiting for people maybe to finish up with the food so they could clean up.  I don’t really know. Just sort of awkward. Otherwise fabulous thoughts about this hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Merlin Guest House.  The place is situated 1 block from Duval and the garden courtyard makes you feel like you are in an oasis.  The room was beautiful and we loved having our own little porch.  I would have liked to learn a little more about the history of the building and it would be nice to have a different variety for breakfast each day, but other than that our stay was perfect.  I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Key West. Thank you.

We spent 4 great nights in Key West and the Merlin Guest House was perfect for our first visit to the Keys. The hotel has the flavor of an upscale B&B without the upscale pricing. For the dollars spent the quality of accommodation was very good for Key West. The bed was comfortable, the staff was friendly and their recommendations for dinners and activities hit the mark every time. The best part was the central location of the hotel that made it extremely easy to get to any place we wanted to go. We just parked our car in their private lot and forgot about it and the traffic for 4 days! This hotel was recommended by our nephew and we plan to recommend it to anyone who is headed to the Keys.
