We stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse and were really impressed with the cleanliness of the room and friendly staff. We are looking to go back for a 5 to 6 nights stay at the end of June and will definitely consider Merlin Guesthouse again as our first choice when we start shopping for rooms.

Though we have been to Key West before this was our first stay at Cypress House. Danielle did a great job of welcoming us and checking us in quickly. We loved room 17 with its spacious and comfortable surroundings-wow what a huge shower. Barbara did a super job of taking care of our room-she was so friendly and efficient. The breakfasts and liming hours were fabulous–great food, a chance to meet others and relax.  We would surely tell others of our great experience at Cypress House.

My wife and I visited Key West for the first time on May 14. Even before we arrived the staff was above and beyond when I called to inform them we’d be arriving late, they told me what time the office closed and personal phone number if I arrived after hours.   Arriving tired and a little miffed at the airline loosing our luggage, the clean, well stocked room was more than a little welcome.

The staff made sure our luggage was delivered the next day and were also instrumental in recommending various attractions and even arranged for a taxi pickup and the trip to the Dry Tortugas. Breakfast was always wonderful and social as was meeting around the swimming pool in the afternoons.

As first timers we toured Duval Street, saw the sunset on Mallory square, drank Cuban coffee and took in the sights, sounds, smells and touch that is Key West. I can’t recall an single unfriendly or disrespectful individual during our entire stay. Eating at the Conch Republic Restaurant was something I’ll always remember, even with the bum hitting me up for a dollar for a beer. He too was polite and honest about what he wanted my money for.

We’d love to come back to Key West and unless something drastic happens, we”ll stay at the Key Lime Inn.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our short stay in Key West.  Staying at the Key Lime Hotel was a fantastic bonus!  Our check-in was flawless.  We arrived later in the evening, looking for a good meal and were given several great pieces of information regarding things to see and do within walking distance.  The room was nicely appointed, clean and fresh.  The complimentary breakfast was a plus and a great way to begin our day.  The housekeeping staff was wonderful and our check-out was seamless.  Great memories were made in Key West!

A couple negatives would be the parking and the second story accommodations. We drove down and had chosen to stay at Key Lime because parking was included and convenient.  We found the only spot left on the night of our arrival and left our car parked for the duration.  Because of the gravel lot, there were no parking “lines/guides” and several vehicles took more than one space. I realize this is not the hotels fault regarding overparking a space but, perhaps it’s an area that can be looked into since parking is such a premium on the island.

As far as the second story accommodations, we didn’t realize there would not be an elevator available.  Thankfully, we were okay to climb stairs but, occasionally, my wife has trouble with her knees and this could have been a disaster for us on this trip.  Perhaps someone from staff could contact a guest prior to their visit to make sure that second story accommodations would work for them.

Those were really the only two “negatives” from our stay and both would not keep us from staying there again when we return for perhaps a longer visit.

Thank you for the lovely hotel within walking distance to so many restaurants and attractions.

Cypress House is in a fantastic location, we walked everywhere we wanted to go.  All the staff were nice, helpful and cheery.  The king room w/ porch was wonderful.  We were actually a couple doors down from the main house (#21), which was fine, it felt like we were in our own house.  The only thing I would change is the breakfast, we ended up eating breakfast out 4 of the 5 days.

We enjoyed our stay at Chelsea House.  The staff was very helpful and the hotel was very nice.  I really enjoyed the porch we had that looked over the city.  The room was a bit small, but well appointed.  We really enjoyed that the location of Chelsea House allowed us to walk virtually everywhere we went in Key West.  I would definitely consider Chelsea House when we visit again.

The check-in/out process was very nice and welcoming, as was the help we received in planning activities.  Both the front desk staff I talked with (I only remember Kaya’s name, unfortunately) were helpful and welcoming. I felt the housekeeping/breakfast staff could have been a little friendlier (smile?). The room was clean and nicely cool upon arrival, but smaller and more modern in décor than I expected.  I enjoyed renting bikes, but on a previous visit to the Keys, the place I stayed had complimentary bikes on premises, which was a nice plus you might consider offering. Street parking is a drawback. Breakfast was adequate, but not exceptional. Location was very convenient. Overall, I felt the price was a little more than the value received.

We found the Cypress House comfortable and nicely located in Key West.  The rooms are well appointed and seemed recently updated.  The staff, without exception, was friendly, helpful, and professional – both during and prior to our stay. Our only suggestion would be to make the Happy Hour offerings a little more substantial.  However, we happily rate this hotel as “excellent” and will gladly recommend it to friends.  It embodied the eclectic ambiance that is so wonderful about Key West, without sacrificing any comfort or convenience.  Perhaps one more suggestion would be a few resident cats!
