Cypress House was so cute! We loved the front porch unit—lots of “aaaahhhh” as well as great for people watching! The room was large and comfy (even though the bathroom sink area was small and cramped. Additional shelves would help.) I was surprised that the night time street noise was not at all bothersome—a plus! I liked having a little kitchen area. It was more than what you’d expect from a regular hotel room. Just a suggestion: A cup towel or paper towels would be helpful…

The location was perfect–walking distance from the ferry and to Duval Street—even for someone like me who has trouble walking!

Despite the reasons for my 4🍍rating, we will definitely be back!

I really enjoyed the Chelsea House Hotel. Easy location, beautiful grounds and setting, and the pool area was really nice too. I was greeted by a young lady who was super nice and sincere. She really made me feel at home and the same could be said about the other lady who guided me around the following morning. The place is super quiet but only a block from the action on Duval street. My room was a bit small but it was very clean and updated. Would stay again without any hesitation.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lighthouse Court Hotel, everything from restaurants, to bars, to tourist attractions were within walking distance. Great little pool/bar area if you just wanted a low key stumble out right out the door kind of day.

We had a wonderful stay at Merlin Guesthouse. The room was very clean with nice furniture. We got a free upgrade during our stay, which made the stay double pleasant.  Merlin Guesthouse is located close to Duval Street. Everything is in walking distance. Breakfast is served by the pool. It is very nice to sip on your coffee in the morning sitting next to the pool. The staff is nice and very helpful. We would definitely book Merlin Guesthouse again and will recommend it to friends and family that plan to visit Key West.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse Court Hotel. The location was perfect and close to everything. Peter was great at suggesting places to eat and things to do during our visit. He got to know us so that his suggestions fit what we would want to do and places we would like to eat. Best time ever!

The Chelsea House Hotel was recommended to us by friends that had stayed there previously and we have to say that everything they raved about was true!

From check in to check out we had nothing but positive experiences. We were greeted with a smile and given everything we needed to know about the hotel and its location in regard to the favorite Key West hot spots.  We enjoyed the continental breakfast that was served daily and the pool location is a perfect peaceful start to the day. Chelsea House rooms were clean and spacious and we felt upgrading our room to the superior queen with a mini fridge was a great addition.

The Chelsea House is in a great central location to everything and anything in Key West. We LOVED the Cuban Coffee Queen and the Raw Oyster Bar and the Marina was one of our favorite places to relax.  We will highly recommend the Chelsea House to all friends heading down to the Keys and we can’t wait to plan another trip to Key West and the Chelsea House Hotel!

Thanks for a great time!

My husband and I stayed at the Lighthouse Court Hotel for a wedding. What an experience. Everything was 1st class. The room was outstanding. The staff was absolutely outstanding. The breakfast was awesome.  I have nothing bad to say about this hotel.

We will be back in the near future.

The Lighthouse Court Hotel lies on a quiet location within walking distance of the places of interest, the restaurants and the harbour. Rooms are cosy and clean, young and friendly staff. Although we live in a Dutch village, it was a special experience to wake up by a rooster. Hope to visit Key West and your hotel again.

Had a wonderful time and experience staying in Key West and staying at the Merlin Guest House. Kenneth was wonderful – extremely helpful and funny – a delight. Our room was kept very clean by the attentive housekeeping staff – it was a home away from home while we relaxed in this beautiful part of our world. We will definitely  consider staying there on our next trip to Key West.

What a magical place! We had the best stay here…the location is perfect and all the staff were so pleasant. Our cottage room was comfortable and loved our front porch! Located across from Hemingway House and so close to Duval St we walked everywhere ❤️❤️❤️
