This is the second time we have stayed at the Lighthouse Court Hotel. The price was right, the location great and we are directly across from the Hemingway Museum. What couldn’t be better? Definitely will stay here on our next visit.

This hotel had private rooms and bathrooms like a typical B&B, but inside the rooms had the feel of a hotel. Our room was located at the top of the back stairway leading to a beautiful pool deck.  The morning breakfasts had many delicious options (hard boiled eggs, pastries, cereal, local bagels, fruit, OJ).  The staff was SO nice, especially Ms Barbara, who was singing a little tune as she walked and so sweet to everyone.

You could definitely tell that many of the historic features remained (antique stairways, doors, and wood), but much of the room was updated to accommodate a modern bathroom, etc.  It was located on the east end of Duval St, and we had no problem walking everywhere (southern most point & eastern sunrises, Duval St. and Mallory Square sunsets, bars & restaurants).  One thing to note, although there was no iron in the room, we were able to borrow the iron & board for the weekend from the front desk.  Also, don’t try to walk to Ft. Zachary Beach… wow, was that farther than expected due to the strange location of the entrance!!  I almost missed the wedding we were there for!

We stayed at Cypress House in Key West for three days in December 2015. We were upgraded to a mini-suite and would highly recommend spending the extra if you can. Our room was large, clean and had a fridge, sink, dishes and an awesome private veranda overlooking Caroline Street. We spent much of our time kicked back in the comfy deck chairs watching the world go by! It’s true that parking is a ways away but you really don’t need a vehicle for much once you are settled. The hotel is 1 block from Fogerty’s on Duval Street (awesome food and drinks) and one block from the waterfront. We spent a lot of time walking along the marina looking at the fish, the boats, and the sunset. It really is an ideal location if you want the fun but not the constant noise of Duval! Staff at the hotel were professional and friendly and the daily happy hour and breakfasts were a nice touch. They even had gluten free cereal.

My only tip for improvement would be to dim the lights on the veranda at night. They were a bit bright for sleeping.

Thanks for making our quick trip to Key West a memorable one. Hope to return soon!

This was our first time in “the Keys”… After our 22hrs of traveling from the UK we were feeling more than a little tired… Upon getting to the reception  a little after 10pm “John” had kindly waited back… He showed us to our room and “wow” we had arrived in heaven… The spacious room was all we needed… A lovely comfy bed with fab bathroom and shower… Very well maintained, very clean neat and tidy… Over the coming days we found it was not just the room that shone… The staff here are some of the most professional, courteous, attentive and thoughtful we have had the pleasure in meeting… The continental style breakfast was nice and fresh everyday… There is plenty of coffee and iced tea on hand all day… We shall be back next year for our winter vacation… And it’s all due to the staff and professionalism they had shown throughout our 9 night stay… You won’t go far wrong at this property in the right place…

Thanks Dale & Sarah R

Where to begin… My girlfriend and I decided to visit Key West for my birthday weekend where I, unbeknownst to her, planned to propose marriage. We booked Chelsea House on a hotel website weeks in advance because the pictures and location looked nice. “Nice” is an understatement.

The location was perfect – a short walk to downtown, but far enough for a peaceful getaway. The grounds and lobby were very well-kept and the staff was extremely kind and helpful. The room was immaculate and had all the Key West charm one hopes for when visiting the island. It had been more than 10 years since either of us traveled to Key West, despite living only 4 hours north in Ft. Lauderdale. It took longer than usual to get there and my proposal plans fell apart, but the hotel, particularly Edy and John, came together for me last minute by placing a bottle of bubbly on ice to await our arrival and create a picturesque engagement, and the hotel did it on the house.

We will stay here every time we come to Key West, and because of the experience, we will wait 10 months instead of 10 years. We recommend you book your stay here as well.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, very knowledgeable about Key West events and places to visit.  Clean and roomy rooms.  Great location to be near all the action.  Outstanding breakfast, with a relaxing garden patio & pool.  Sun decks are a very relaxing place to put your feet up after a busy day.  Highly recommend staying here.  Will be our go to place on future visits.

What a great spot!  I usually stay in a large chain because I am afraid of the unknown. Based on a friends recommendation I tried the Merlin Guest House and I was happy I did!  Very quaint, quiet, and close to everything that Key West has to offer.  Loved it!

Our recent visit in Key West was the second time we stayed in the Key Lime Inn. The grounds at the inn are well maintained, the staff is pleasant and helpful, and the rooms are clean and quiet. Our first stay at the inn had us in a room on the second floor which was lovely. And this time we stayed in one of the little cottages… so quaint!! I would highly recommend anyone to stay at the Key Lime Inn. It is very close to Duval Street (where all the action is), yet it is quiet and intimate. We can’t wait for our next stay!!

We had a great time during our stay at Lighthouse Court.  All of your staff were friendly and helpful.  Especially noteworthy were the services provided by Rose at the front desk.

We had just a few suggestions that we wanted to pass along for your review.

During the morning breakfast, play some classical music outside in the pool area.  I believe a sound system is already in place.  It doesn’t need to be loud, just enough to be heard.

Hold off on the loud maintenance tasks until the two hour breakfast period is completed.

Provide all of your maintenance staff with matching Historic Key West Inns t-shirts.

Thank you all and we look forward to returning again next year.

Regards,

Christopher Blake
