The employees couldn’t do enough for us. Was warm and friendly-like family.  Was wonderful to have breakfast supplied also. That way you can get on with your day!!  The room was spacious and beautiful!!  We have also stayed at their Chelsea House Hotel!  They are both amazing!! We will be back!!!

Just steps from the tourist shops, bars, and restaurants dotting Duval Street, and a short stroll to Mallory Square, the Cypress House Hotel manages to be a quiet respite to an exciting Key West vacation destination. Checking in to this Key West Hotel was a breeze and the concierge provided us a brief tour of the grounds, offered up ideas for things to do, and suggested places for us to go. And because the hotel isn’t very big, we were always greeted by a familiar face when coming or going, or during breakfast or ‘Liming Hour’–the latter, a souvenir we returned home with. Liming Hour offered a different complimentary cocktail and snack each afternoon (our favorite was the Cypress punch) and made for the perfect time to come home from a busy day out, relax by the pool for a bit, and then clean up and head out for the evening.

The rooms were also fantastic. They were updated to be more contemporary but retained some of their original charm (the building itself was from the 19th century). Everything was open, bright, and breezy, making the need for AC pretty limited against the Florida sun.

We can’t wait to go back to the Cypress House Hotel. The combination of location, service, and the hotel itself put our four-day vacation over the top. Highly recommend the Cypress House Hotel for your next visit.

We were married a few weeks ago at another property but we did our room block at Lighthouse Court Hotel. Everything about it was perfection. Our friends and family are still raving about the experience. Every time we’d come back to the hotel we’d see our friends sitting around the pool/lounge area chatting with new friends they had made in our group.

We stayed in the Hemingway Suite – stunning. It’s so unique and the epitome of luxury in Key West. We had plenty of room to get ready on the wedding day. I’ll forever remember walking out to the wraparound balcony to gawk at the Hemingway House on my wedding day. The hotel even had a custom coconut painted with our names and wedding date with a bottle of champagne. It brought a huge smile to our faces!

The location is awesome. Close to Duval and walking distance to both the South and North side of the Key. If you have a small to medium size wedding in key west and don’t want them to have to pay the outrageous resort prices during spring break, this place is a great option! I loved that my guests got a unique feel of what it’s like to be in Key West here. The only challenge we had was at check in. I didn’t realize I had to bring the same credit card that I booked with so they had to rebook our reservations, refund my booking with card and then I had to repay on a different card. It was a bit confusing but all in all we had a wonderful time and that was the only issue; I’d say we had it pretty good!

We popped into the Key Lime Inn looking for a room, and since they were booked,  they sent us to their Merlin Guest House.  Kenneth was so accommodating and kind.  We stayed in one of the front guest rooms, and then got moved to a one bedroom cottage for our second night, which was lovely.  We would definitely recommend staying at this great convenient spot!

We took an impromptu trip to the Keys and booked a last-minute one night stay at the Chelsea House. It was wonderful; great location, friendly staff, chic decor and a nice continental breakfast.  I very much enjoyed the quiet pool area and would absolutely stay at the Chelsea House Hotel again; for a longer stay.

The room was small and perfect for two people and a short stay. It was located up a steep and narrow staircase.  This was no problem for us, but could have been an issue for some guests. However it sounds like this was explained during the booking process (I used Kayak) and I may have overlooked it. Either way, I very much enjoyed my stay and would return.

Loved the room, elegant yet simple, with its own terrace.  The pool was lovely and well shaded, never too crowded.  The staff was very nice and helpful.  The whole hotel was a great place to relax between the morning and evening strolls in the busier parts of town.  I would definitely recommend it just like I would recommend Key West which has become one of my favourite places in the world!

This was our second stay at the Merlin Guest House. Love this place. The rooms are well equipped and the grounds are exactly what Key West is all about. Lush greenery, a pool and a cat who is king. Kenneth checked us in and out both times. He is wonderful and was very helpful. Can’t think of a bad thing about this place with the exception of we didn’t stay longer.

We had such a great time relaxing and seeing the sights of Key West while staying at Chelsea House Hotel. From the moment we checked in everyone was friendly and had lots of recommendations. Our room was across the street from the main building and had its own pool area, which was great. The rooms are modern and the whole area is very clean. It was the perfect location for us and plan to either stay here or one of their sister properties the next time we are in town.

Thanks!!

We just got back from staying at Cypress House Hotel for 2 nights and had a great time! The location was great -close enough to Duval but away from the noise! It was an easy walk to Mallory Square and surrounded by great restaurants. My parents had a room with a balcony and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning and night! Although we did not take advantage of the pool, we enjoyed the outdoor courtyard area. The breakfast was good and the “liming” happy hour was a great bonus! We will definitely stay here again when we go back to Key West!
