This hotel has everything you need to enjoy Key West. First is location. Its located one block off Duval Street. Very Quiet. There is a few Scooter rental stores within a block so that is very convenient. Easy access from airport, 10 minutes away.

Next is the hotel itself. We have stayed there quite a few times now and the rooms are all in Great shape. Fresh, no smell and look like they have been freshly remodeled every time we have stayed. They all have AC in them and it works really, really well. They have a Pool, looks good but have never gone in. Their grounds are kept in great shape and the included Breakfast is good, Coffee, OJ, Cereal, Local Bagels, Toast, Fruit and Ham/Cheese thingy’s.

Security is monitored by a Resident Cat named Jordan Del Gato. (Facebook him) He is a friendly sort and can be found making his rounds at night between rooms and the pool area. Think of him as the Old bank security guard sleeping in his chair in a corner.
The Staff, Front Desk and Maids are all very, very friendly and helpful.
The only issue with the Merlin Guesthouse is street parking and rooms are not cheap. Especially the ones we get.( king size room) It can be tough to find a spot. So if you stay, don’t rent a car use a scooter and if you do have a car park it and get a scooter.
The price is in line with every other Inn or Hotel and not as high as the Fancy Hotel chains. We usually get the biggest room we can because we do spend more time in there than say if we were in New York.
So you can find Better, there are a lot of worse places but if the last thing you want to worry about in Key West is your room, Location, Breakfast and Security try the Merlin Guesthouse. You will also love it.

Excellent stay and service at the Key Lime Inn. From the moment we drove in we were impressed with the overall look and feel of the place. The reception staff was great, particularly Michelle, very friendly. They accommodated my room even though I arrived early and settling in quickly. The room was clean, comfy and cozy with great amenities…..loved the soap, and shampoo and pool towels were left for us ready to go. Loved our room and would absolutely stay again without question.

I had a lovely stay at Cypress House while in Key West!
Staff was very friendly! Melissa was super nice and helped us a lot with city instructions, holding our bags & making delicious breakfast. She also let us stay another hour before checkout, which was a great improvement. Thanks a lot, honey ūüėČ

The room was great! Good pool view, excellent bed, great towels and a mountain of pillows. The hotel location is excellent. Less than a 10-minute-walk from Mallory Square and at the corner of Duval Street – where you can find all the stores and restaurants. If you have a chance, stop by Sloopy Joe’s, it’s amazing! Don’t forget to take the city map with you – you’ll receive at the hotel – once getting lost is very easy.
My only regret is staying only one night. So much to see in one night only! But I sure want to come back.

From the moment upon arrival, I am feeling kindness from the front desk to housekeeping. Always polite and friendly. The room I like to stay in is room 16. Clean and fresh. The grounds are kept well. Pool area is clean and inviting. I like the fact the Chelsea House is close to Duffys restaurant, better than sex desserts and the moped hospital where I rent bikes. The breakfast at the pool area is just what I need to start my day. This is the only hotel I stay in when visting Key West. No need to look any further when I am happy with everything.

I cannot begin to express our delight and pleasure with the accommodations at the Cypress House.  It is such a lovely resort and the rooms are comfortable, clean and most of all the location is truly convenient to all the happenings of Key West.  The Resort staff was truly superb in every way and their knowledge and subsequent recommendations of things to do and places to go was top notch!  I will plan my next trip to Key West and put Cypress House at the top of my choices for room accommodations!  By the way, breakfast and happy hour were quite lovely each day and it was great fun to enjoy the quaint surroundings of the resort grounds!!!

Recently moved to Florida, and had some friends come to visit and we decided to take a trip to Key West. Lighthouse Court is centrally located with the next street over being Duval, close walking distance to everything. From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly and our rooms were ready right away. Our room was a king, so quaint and clean it felt welcoming. Our friends had a double queen efficiency room that was absolutely perfect. Continental breakfast every morning served pool side. What a great way to start a busy day. Upon return, rooms cleaned and fresh towels. A jump in the pool and drink from the cafe/bar on site next to the pool.  Great way to rest and relax for the afternoon before venturing out for dinner on Duval Street and beautiful sunset at Mallory Square. This historic inn, will not disappoint. Located directly across the street from the Hemingway house and next door to the historic lighthouse. My next trip I will be returning to Lighthouse Court.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn over Labor Day Weekend. We booked a Superior Queen room and we were very pleased with our accommodations. The room was spacious and spotless. The pool was one of the largest I have seen in a Key West hotel and very well appointed. The staff were a pleasure and we will definitely be returning!

We enjoyed our stay so much! The hotel was perfectly located just two short blocks away from Duval Street. The rooms were quite clean and comfortable! And the service was great! We needed extra towels one day and they brought them immediately. Breakfast was also convenient and a nice assortment. We spent a lot of time at the pool and there was always cold water and tea waiting for us to enjoy! We will certainly return.

We enjoyed our stay at Lighthouse Court. The room was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Only suggestions I have are curtains to block the outside lights at night and a closet.  The blinds do not do enough to darken the room.  The room we were in did not have a closet.  Otherwise, this was a great place to stay.
