We had a wonderful stay at Merlin Guesthouse. We spend February visiting Florida and decided to head to Key West. By the time I looked for a place, many places were booked. I finally came across this place. How lucky was I, it was clean, neat, and comfortable, has a heated soak pool and is nestled close to Duval Street. They even offer a free continental breakfast by the pool in the morning. What a lucky find. I will look to see if Merlin is available first on my next trip to Key West.

Had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse Court.  Location was excellent, close enough to Duval Street for the action but far enough away for a peaceful place to hang out and for sleeping.  Staff was very helpful and pleasant.  Appreciated the place to park our car as we didn’t need to use it while we were in the Keys.  The pool area was very nice and the entire area was very clean.  Breakfast was nice each morning with normal continental items.  Our room was clean and a good size.  Did not have a closet only a dresser.  Bathroom was large however small shower and there was no shelf or place to put items except the small windowsill.  The room A/C was a little loud and while the air temp was fine it didn’t seem to remove the humidity like we are used to.  Overall the Lighthouse Court was a lovely place and would definitely go back there again and recommend to friends and family.

Great place to stay! Very clean, very friendly and close to most Key West attractions. Walked to Duval and the waterfront several times. Breakfast on the patio was nice. Would stay here again.

We had a very comfortable stay with you. The front desk was extremely helpful. When we arrived, the gal at the desk helped us find a parking place right across the street, because the parking lot was full. The night staff gave us recommendations for really good restaurants every night. Most importantly, when we left an entire drawer full of clothes, your staff called and told us how we could have them shipped to the next stop. We don’t usually leave things behind. We are so grateful you help to correct this error on our part. We will definitely come again!

We just returned from a weekend trip to Key West.  We really enjoyed the Key Lime Inn.  Highly recommend paying the extra for the King rooms in the main house – well worth it.  Coffee on the porch listening to the palm leaves rustle in the breeze – very serene.  Location was great.  Grounds were very quaint and had various sitting areas/hammocks throughout. 2 block walk to Duval and 10 minute walk to Blue Heaven – the best breakfast on Key West!  Will definitely consider staying for our next trip down.

Perfect inn off the main drag- we stayed in a king suite ( #10) with a porch which was very spacious.   I did not see what a cottage looked like but some were available at this hotel.  I ask to see one but they were all occupied.  Check in and check out was a breeze and the staff courteous, efficient, and helpful with advice and directions. The bathrooms were very clean and it was nice to actually have clean bathroom vanity drawers for use.  Refrigerator was located at bedside,  and a very small safe was bolted to the floor in the closet.  Surrounding grounds were private with hammocks,rockers and table and chairs. Poolside was clean and neat with tables, chairs and loungers.  Evening socializing and shared drinks were permitted by the pool. This is where continental breakfast is served daily. Parking was limited but available on street or in their adjacent hotels lots.  Housekeeping was daily and efficient.  Bike rentals were great for traveling the island and located within walking distance of the hotel.  We had a group of 7 so negotiated a very fair price of $10 / day. Smoking is permitted in some areas poolside and on the porch.  I would stay here again and recommend it to my family and friends.

Room Tip: If bothered by late night conversation by the pool request a room farther away. Some units require stairs so if that is a problem mention that at time of reservation.

A few of our favorite places: Saint Mary Star of the Sea Church and Grotto ( the mass was an awesome experience):  Sunset pier and happy hour at Commodores: Mallory Square at Sunset ( look for Bobby) and Duval.

We do not recommend the drag queen shows- we have seen these tastefully done- but found these not so.

I had the pleasure of escaping a brutal Chicago winter for a brief stay at the Key Lime Inn from February 22 thru February 26, 2015. Upon arrival we were welcomingly greeted by Michelle at the front desk. She promptly checked us in & explained all that the Inn had to offer & how to get around town. Daily greetings, directions, suggestions on restaurants & calls for taxis all were provided promptly and with a warm smile. Having never stayed at the Key Lime Inn, I didn’t know what to expect. Rooms & common areas are very clean & well kept & staff is very friendly & accomodating. The only things that I thought were lacking were a pool side tiki bar, inhouse food service for guests & a more conveniently located room safe. Overall, however, my girlfriend & I thoroughly enjoyed the quaintness of the Key Lime Inn. Looking forward to coming back sooner than later. Thank you & God bless.

This was my first time staying with Cypress House. I was a little overwhelmed at the price at first but quickly learned that the price was right in line (or even below) pricing in other Key West hotels this time of year. Check-in was made very easy by the “loading/unloading” parking space. A staff member even came out to help with my luggage. After check-in, I received a nice tour and was given opinions on where to go and what to see. The room was updated and very clean. I also was pleased to see that there was a gate that locked in addition to the locking room. Breakfast and social hours are nice touches and staff is continuously checking to see how you are doing. The hotel is also in the perfect location…walking distance to Duval, the marina and plenty of restaurants and shopping. I will definitely be back!
