The Key Lime Inn is not where we originally booked to stay in Key West. Our first booking double-booked us and let us know a month before our trip….thank goodness! The Key Lime Inn was fantastic. From the instant we pulled into the parking lot I was happy with where we ended up. It is exactly what I would picture when thinking of an inn in Key West. The rooms have the feel of being their own little bungalows. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. Close enough to Duval to wander from bar to bar and take in the surroundings, yet far enough away for a peaceful night sleep. We will definitely being coming back to the Key Lime Inn when we return to Key West.

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at the Chelsea House.  The room was elegant, clean and quiet.  We loved staying close to Duval but out of the “hustle and bustle” of the party scene.  We could walk everywhere we wanted to go.  The staff was extremely helpful with outstanding recommendations for activities in the area.  We especially loved the nature kayaking trip that was recommended.  Thank you for a lovely stay!

My husband and I had never been to Key West and were really looking forward to a few days of relaxing and sightseeing with his sister and his nephew. We are from San Diego, my husband’s sister from Virginia, and her son is in the Navy as a Top Gun Flight Instructor on the F-18’s. It was a wonderful chance for us to all get together in Key West, where my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations at the Merlin Guesthouse. The bed was very comfy, staff very friendly and helpful, the restaurant across the street was perfect our first night during a rain storm–delicious and close!! We have told everyone considering visiting Key West to stay at the Merlin Guesthouse as it was the highlight of our trip–and that says ALOT!!

This was our third stay at the The Merlin Guesthouse.  We’ve been so pleased with your accommodations, staff, and service that we have never considered staying anywhere else (and we all know there are plenty of options).  The location, rooms, beautiful and relaxing courtyard/pool area, breakfast, kind and considerate staff, and of course Jordan make this our ideal retreat.  We recommend your inn to friends and family visiting Key West with every opportunity.  The fact that we see the same pleasant faces each time we return also speaks volumes.   The staff, especially the front desk, has always been more than friendly and accommodating.  We highly recommend the Black Fin Bistro for a great meal.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. A perfect location as it’s close enough to minimize walking to Duval or Mallory Square, but not so close that  you hear all the bar crowds. The happy hour offering was delicious and a wonderful way to start our evening each night! The breakfast was also nice with a good variety of options! Our only concern was the street noise, as our room was on the outside and the traffic noise did wake  us up a few times, but that is out of their control. That being said we would stay again in a heartbeat…we’d just remember ear plugs next time.

In 2014 we stayed at your Cypress House location,… we also chose to stay this february 2015 as well. Cypress House and its staff are everything a Key West vacation should be! The historic home has been beautifully updated with all modern amenities. The pool, the private balconies and porches, and lounge area all are great. The mornings began with a generous breakfast, and by the afternoon, the happy hour drinks and snacks were very much enjoyed…. all gratis too !! I will be coming back here for a long time, and sending many friends and relatives your way as well.

Thank you, Brent and Diana Delaney

Stayed at the Cypress House over Valentine’s weekend. We had a blast. The location is outrageous!! It is so convenient and close to all the action. The staff was over the top friendly and nice and it was the best Key West experience I have ever had, and I have had many!! I hope to return in the near future as I am a florida resident and it is very doable!!

Thank you to the Albury Court for a spectacular stay with my husband from 2/15 – 2/17. We cannot share enough our feeling of thankfulness and the feeling of being blessed by your hotel customer service and staff. The staff was very gracious to provide an accommodating price to meet our budget during what is considered to be peak season. My husband and I recently married on 12/6/14 in which he is active duty Marine stationed in San Diego and I live in Pensacola, FL. (Due to his upcoming deployment we do not live in the same town). So we planned this mini-honeymoon to reunite after 6 weeks of not seeing each other to spend quality time together before he deploys.

My husband flew overnight on Valentines evening to meet me in Key West on 2/15. We arrived at the hotel full of excitement of the feeling of relaxing and spending some fun in the sun. Upon arrival to the hotel, we soon learned how very cheerful the hotel staff was by providing ear to ear smiles and assisted us with the storage of our luggage as we went to visit the nearby shops. Once we checked into our room, low and behold a bottle of champagne with chocolates congratulating us on our wedding and honeymoon. Never have we felt so welcomed with love and kindness by a hotel. We knew our time would be magical together but the staff at the Albury Court Hotel went above and beyond in making our time lovely together. The room was kept very clean and was quiet which we surely appreciated those moments together. I loved the customer service representatives at the front desk with so many helpful tips to spend our time.

Scott and I plan on returning to the Albury Court hopefully in the next year to spend our anniversary. He is currently deployed in Japan but I have the Albury Court to thank for the great, loving memories with my newly wed husband.

Love in Christ,

Carissa and Scott Vigus

We really enjoyed our stay. Very walkable to the heart of town and the south side beaches. Very relaxed but still high quality room.
