We were so pleased with our spacious room (with a loft that our daughters slept in), the hotels grounds, pleasant staff, pool, and on-site bar service. The pool-side breakfast was a hit too. The hotels location is great for exploring the island and the parking provided was convenient. We will be back!

My husband and I have stayed at the Merlin Guest House four different times.  Each time, we have had a great experience there.  The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean (and now are updated/renovated), breakfast on the patio is always pleasant and gives us a chance to chat with other guests while we drink our coffee and eat fresh local pastries or cereal. And the Merlin is close to Duval St and everything is very walkable from this location.  I have recommended the Merlin to friends and family and we will stay there again the next time we come!  Special kudos to staff person Kenneth who has been so friendly and helpful to us.

We had a great time in Key West and Key Lime Inn was a great place to stay. Quiet, clean, spacious and with helpful and friendly staff. Right across from Catholic Church so was convenient for mass. Just perfect.

We spent only one night at Lighthouse Court but is was delicious 😃 and we enjoyed our stay very much. Nice apartment upstairs view on swimming pool and Key West Lighthouse. Bedroom was a little small but it was ok for us. Parking place available and we indeed appreciate it. Very nice people at front desk. Free Wifi available. I will recommend this place to my friends.

This was our second visit to KW and our first visit to Albury Court Hotel. We were worried that the location would be too far from everything we wanted to do on foot, but it was perfect. Great neighborhood with local restaurants and the famous Old Town Bakery! The bike rental was two blocks away! After staying on Duval St. this was a nice change.

The room was nice. The new bed was SO comfortable and the new bathroom/shower was a treat. Continental breakfast was a nice way to start the day. The baked goods not great so we enjoyed the yogurt and fruit. Loved having local and national newspapers. I would ask that you post a No Smoking sign out back as nothing ruins a nice breakfast more than a group nearby lighting up at 8:15 am!

The front desk was helpful on arrival and departure. Check in and out was easy. We have already recommended to friends and family.

Regarding attractions etc. we enjoyed Hemingway’s house as well as the Key West Art Museum. Also Cocco & Salem art gallery, the Southernmost Beach Cafe and The Conch Republic restaurant. Also the beautiful Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park and beach. Sooo beautiful!

Thanks for a great stay and we are already saving up for our next trip. So easy to get there from Boston!!

We had an excellent stay at the Chelsea House. We had reserved a queen room and upon checking in, we were upgraded to a king!  The staff at the front desk were courteous and pleasant.  Our room was spacious, comfortable, and clean – the bed was extremely comfy and didn’t wiggle when either my wife or I moved (as some cheap hotel beds tend to do).

Breakfast was good and the breakfast/housekeeping staff were friendly and gracious.  My only suggestion is that maybe the coffee gets put out a little earlier or there is a coffee maker in the room (breakfast is from 8 to 10 and everything was ready right at 8, but coffee…  well, you know what I mean).

We visited the first week of February and by New England standards, it was beautiful weather, but the “heated” pool was a bit on the cold side for us.

All in all, we had a terrific stay and would not hesitate to book a room at the Chelsea House Hotel when we return to Key West.

I traveled to Key West without planning it. They were driving down and I had never been. They had booked a hotel in New town for 4 nights and couldn’t get out of the reservation. It was OK for them, but I wanted something a little better and in Old Town, since I wanted to experience historic Key West. After doing an internet search and calling around, I was referred to the Key Lime Inn. When I called there, I believe they told me they didn’t have any vacancies there and transferred me to their Albury Court Hotel front desk. Malik answered the phone and was a wealth of information. He seemed to know everything about the properties; he informed me of the locations and amenities and prices at each. Also, he never seemed in a rush to get off the phone and had tremendous patience. I had to hang up and discuss it with my folks and when I called back to book, Albury Court Hotel was all booked, but I was referred to their Lighthouse Court Hotel through the reservation system. I quickly booked and we left to check me in since my parents had dinner plans with friends.

What an impression Lighthouse Court makes from the street–what a beautiful property! Laura was so easy to deal with as well as Marie who I had to deal with the next day when I moved from a King to a Queen because of availability. Both rooms were primo! Very beautiful and tasteful…I loved the decor. I was glad to learn that I could use the pools at any of their properties and used the beautiful lap pool at Cypress House Hotel several times before I left. There was a good deal of vegetation in and around the pools, and each was lovely. The day my folks were leaving, I decided to stay longer and chose Albury Court because of its close proximity to Cypress House. Kaya was a doll and I got to meet Malik. What a cute room! As comfortable and tasteful as Lighthouse Court. I am only sorry that I only discovered my favorite pool at Key Lime Inn the day I was leaving.

What a great group of hotels that allows you to experience the real Key West. I intend to recommend them to anyone travelling to Key West whose opinions and relationships I value :-)

We had a very enjoyable stay and would return. The staff were totally pleasant and helpful, from the desk (they were cheerful and enjoyable) to the breakfast by the pool. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Bed was great. They could improve on the breakfast by having a few more offerings but I didn’t go there for the breakfast. I would also add a second luggage stand in the bedroom. Everything else was very nicely done. The price was competitive for KW.

We frequented Blue Heaven for both breakfast and lunch. It has long waits because it is so enjoyable. Whats the hurry if you are vacationing.
