Lighthouse Court Hotel is somewhat of a hidden gem! A prime location, one street from Duval St. in the heart of Old Town Key West, yet it is a quiet retreat. Our week long stay in May was nothing short of FANTASTIC! It was perfect for a couples vacation. The entire staff was courteous, friendly and very helpful. Laura checked us in and she was GREAT! She asked about our interests and provided us with a wealth of information and suggestions that fit what we were looking to do during our stay! We had inquired about bicycle rental for the week and next thing we know she’s on the phone making arrangements with Island Safari Rentals for us! Our room (B1) was clean, comfortable, had several windows for lots of natural light and was just what we wanted. The only suggestion I would have is to add counter space in the bathroom. The lack of made it a bit of a challenge to place/store our toiletries. The grounds were beautiful! The pool was clean. The Mojito Bar & Cafe was delish! The smaller, more quaint setting made it very easy for us to relax and really enjoy our trip and our time together. We cannot say enough about our stay and highly recommend Lighthouse Court Hotel! We are already planning our next trip and we look forward to another stay at Lighthouse Court Hotel!  Thank you!

First of all, I will just say that it was a true joy and pleasure to stay at the Merlin Guest House! I was celebrating my 34th birthday with my girlfriend, Libby. I am from FL and have been to Key West several times. Libby is from Indiana, and has only been to Key West once, when she was a little girl. I flew her in from Indianapolis into Miami, then we drove down together on the morning of June 2nd. I chose the Merlin Guest House because I liked the location, the reviews online, the price range, and the pictures and description of the unit. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Michealle and Linda. They treated us to a bottle of champagne for our room. It was a nice touch! The room itself, we stayed in room 11, was perfect! The size, cleanliness, bathroom, patio with chair areas, community hammock, everything was great! Libby and I had such a wonderful time, we said it was like heaven on earth, like paradise, and a weekend neither of us will ever forget. Linda was very helpful with providing a list of local companies that do bike rentals, waverunners, etc. We would love to come back to stay at the Merlin Guest House and I have already recommended it to my friends and family. It’s a great place and you have chosen some great employees. Can’t think of a single complaint.

We had an excellent experience from the get go with ‘Robert’ at the front desk (check-in/check-out), who greeted us with a big smile and made us feel welcome – What a great guy! He was very attentive to our needs and showed us the room before we confirmed our reservation. Front desk staffer ‘Kezzy,’ who was by Robert at check-out, was also very pleasant. The maid staff also greeted us with welcoming eyes and smiles.  We found the room to be spacious, clean and had no residual odors of smoke or strong cleaning chemicals that some places use to hide smells. Thankful to have none of those odors. The bed however, was a little smaller that the king that we are used to and firming than we like.  The continental breakfast was an added plus, with bagels and muffins, hard-boiled eggs, coffee and orange juice. The cottage setting amongst the trees was very nice and relaxing. Unfortunately we never made it to the pool, but it looked inviting.  We chose the Key Lime Inn for its location, as it was across the street from the St. Mary Star of the Sea Basilica, which was one of the reasons for our visit to Key West. The Butterfly Conservatory, not far from there was the other. Would definitely recommend the Key Lime Inn to others!

Really liked the Cypress House Hotel and the atmosphere. The staff was personable and friendly. Loved our room – it was comfortable, clean and private. We had a sitting area outside our room (#13). Liming Hour was very nice held every evening. What we liked the best about the Cypress House Hotel was that it was adults only. Bo’s Fishwagon just a few blocks away had a great Grouper sandwich. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, it’s not your typical hotel.

Our room had ample space, a comfortable bed and nicely appointed bathroom. The breakfast was fine with the happy hour being a nice little bonus. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located and quite convenient to many of Key West’s most notable attractions. A special thanks to Scott and Melissa.

Not only does the Chelsea House Hotel have a fantastic location near everything you want to see in Key West, but the staff were amazingly professional and helpful upon check-in and thereafter. When I got in the room, I was pleased at how nicely decorated it was with a modern, fresh, Key West vibe – loved it! The room was also really clean, which I was surprised and very happy about considering the humid conditions. But, then…. I dropped something important behind the dresser under the TV… I dreaded moving that furniture fearing my exceedingly comfortable level of cleanliness I had enjoyed would be instantly ruined. However, I moved the dresser and it was amazingly spotless underneath, not a piece of dust and the baseboards were immaculate (A true sign of a clean room). Waking up was just as enjoyable, popping out of my room to a poolside, generous continental breakfast just footsteps from my door. I was thoroughly impressed by the Chelsea House Hotel and am excited to stay there again, or in one of the sister properties. It was a really nice complement to a great trip to the Keys.

This hotel, actually 3 separate buildings, which are quiet, clean, comfortable and affordable. The check-in lobby is not grand, but they have a complimentary cold water/iced tea station and a desk with a printer for boarding passes. The front desk staff was very friendly, but not all of them were familiar with offerings around the hotel area and couldn’t offer a recommendation for camping supplies (I found an Ace Hardware across the street). That’s relevant because this hotel is located conveniently close (2 block walk) to the dock for both Fort Meyers and Dry Tortugas/Fort Jefferson Ferries. Since campers need to be at the dock early in the morning, this is comfortable hotel for the night before a camping trip. Thanks.
