This was our second time staying at The Cypress House and this time we brought some friends.  Enjoyed everything once again!  Friendly staff, clean rooms, great location.  With the weather cooling off the pool could’ve been a little warmer!  Can’t wait to go back again!

We had a great stay at the Lighthouse Court on our first visit to Key West. Our room was clean, the bed was super comfortable! We did get woken up at approx 3 am by crowing roosters…it was annoying, but also SUPER hilarious. We learned our lesson and used the (provided) ear plugs the next night. :)  The bathroom could use additional counter space – not the end of the world – just made getting ready in the morning a bit of a balancing act. The staff was very accomodating and helpful, the front desk lady gave great tips on the best times to go where. Breakfast in the morning was nice: nothing elaborate, but definitely adequate. Location, location, location — it was just a wonderful place to stay as you could walk to ANYWHERE you wanted to be in minutes – but just a tiny smidge set apart from the rowdy side of KW.

Ladies and gentlemen,

In this Email you will find a feedback about our stay at the Key Lime Inn.
It has been our 4th visit at this place within the past 3 years, and we had every time very enjoyable stays. The following criteria made us choose the Key Lime Inn:

1. The staff was friendly, polite and helpful, especially at the reception. The check-in/out processes were good and fast (we had booked online). We would have been even more pleased if the computer had recognized that we had already been guest in the past. It is always nice to hear a “welcome back” when checking-in.
The cleaning staff was very attentive as well. We had our “do not disturb” card hanging at the door, because we did not need any cleaning on that day. We met the cleaning lady outside and she asked us if we wished to exchange our bath towels. So we just gave her our used ones against fresh ones. Very attentive service!
The prices of the overnights are comparable to other hotels in the area, and the quality/price relation is good.

2. The rooms are comfortable, nicely decorated and very clean, point that is very important for us. Having a safe, a fridge and a coffee-maker are other details that of course add to the comfort.
The fact that the hotel is organized in bungalows and rooms on one floor only is another point that we particularly appreciate, especially while traveling with heavy suitcases.
The nice little pool is very enjoyable as well, to relax in between tours and visits.
The breakfast is okay but could be improved. The corner with the breakfast items is just too small, the toasters are located in the far corner of the tables and it takes quite a long time to gather everything, especially when a lot of guests are waiting. 2 days in a row there was no table available to eat at 8 a.m., even though the hotel was not full. People were already queuing before the opening (European guests have 6-8 hours time difference and wake-up very early if they just arrived).

3. The location of the hotel is perfect for our needs. Walking distance to the main street, restaurants and attractions, but far enough from the noise and tumult.
We especially enjoy the restaurant “915” on Duval street and the “Sunset bar” at the far end of Duval street.

4. For all those reasons we regularly recommend the Key Lime Inn to friends and family members planing a trip to Key West.

Best regards

Audrey and Jan Schroller

Chelsea House has a fantastic location just off the busiest part of duval street. It boasts a wonderful continental breakfast with fresh muffins, cereals, yogurts, local bagels, hard boiled eggs and more. The fact that it is an adult only establishment is evident in the tranquil environment, and the service we received, from front of the house to back of the house, was impeccable.

We would completely recommend this place to any small groups or couples as Chelsea House affords you as little or as much privacy and calm as you desire in the ever bustling key west.

We stayed in one of the Merlin Guesthouses Cottages and had a wonderful experience.  It was spacious with a bedroom, bath, kitchenette, and living room with the hide-a-bed we needed.  From the initial call to book our cottage to checkout, the staff members were friendly and helpful.  The location was very good as well, close to the trolley we wanted, lots of restaurant and shops near, and yet far enough from the activity to be very quiet.  Each morning a breakfast of cereals, yogurts, fruit, breads, coffee, tea, and juice was available around the pool along with newspapers on the tables.  I would highly recommend the Merlin Guesthouse and would certainly stay here again.

I have to say that this was one of the best hotels that we have ever stayed in. The room was so clean and inviting. The staff was very nice and they always said good morning or asked if there was anything that we needed. The location of the hotel was perfect and within walking distance to everywhere that we went. I felt very safe. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay for our family.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed two wonderful nights in this charming hotel! Our hotel room was decorated perfectly and had everything we needed including a wet bar area and mini fridge. The room was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable! We also loved the patio area for the complimentary breakfast and enjoyed the fact that there was locally made food at breakfast.

All of the staff we met were very friendly and accommodating. We  assumed parking would be a pain-but it turned out not to be an issue at all.

We’d definitely stay here again because this is also in walking distance to all of the action!

We really enjoyed staying with you all, everyone is super friendly and helpful. Close enough to all the action but far enough away to enjoy some quiet time.  Hope to see you all real soon.
