My return visit to Lighthouse Court Hotel this year was once again incredible. I’m not sure just how many times I have stayed at Lighthouse Court but it’s been a minimum of four years. Originally it was recommended to me by a local, who said it was a great place to stay. Boy, was he right! Back when I made my reservation for Jan 11-17, 2015, I had requested a specific room. Although it was not guaranteed to me, when I checked in, it was available, and I had my favorite King room at the Inn. Also, I had changed my original reservation for 6 nights, to seven nights. Again, there was no problem at all with the additional night. When I arrived a little earlier than normal check-in, I was greeted by the front desk staff with warmth and friendliness, and allowed to keep my bag in a secured closet until my room was available. All the staff of Lighthouse Court are, and have always made me feel right at home. I stay there each year for several reasons. I am a single traveller, and always feel safe at Lighthouse Court, which is very importnant to me. It is also located close enough to everything in Key West, yet not in the hustle of Duval Street.
I was pleasantly surprised this year when I had a lovely welcome back note and a bottle of chilled champagne waiting for me upon my arrival to the room. I had never experienced this in any other place that I have stayed. The entire staff at Lighthouse Court have always been friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to make sure everything goes well for me as well as all the other guests. I was wished a happy birthday by the front desk staff, which added a personal touch, which I appreciated.

I walk to and from the airport to Lighthouse Court each visit because it gives me the opportunity to begin and end my vacation in the most perfect way. I was offered a ride to the airport by one of your staff this year. Although I declined, I welcomed the kindness of the offer. I rent a bicycle at Island Bikes each visit, and use that for my transportation around KW. I spend time at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, not only sunbathing, but sunset visits also. I do go to Mallory Square to join the sunset celebration at least a few nights during my stay. I wouldn’t miss a walk to the top of the Lighthouse each year, as the view from there is always incredible. This year I also went snorkeling at the reef with Fury, which was great.

I am already planning next year’s visit to Key West, and Lighthouse Court will be the place I choose to stay! Thank you for the opportunity of staying there year after year. In conversation with friends and colleagues after my return, I always recommend Lighthouse Court as the only place to stay on the island.

We had a very nice stay at Key Lime Inn.  The hostess, Micheall was very helpful and friendly, guiding us to places to see and places to eat.

Our stay at the Chelsea House was exceptional. We only stayed one night, but we enjoyed everything from the room to the poolside breakfast in the morning. The staff was very polite and helpful.

We would recommend the Chelsea House to anyone visiting Key West.

Thank you for everything.

This was my second stay at Merlin Guesthouse.  I liked my room #12 this year.  I’m so glad the TV was adjusted so that I could see the screen.  The two managers on duty are the same each year and they are great!  (Kenneth and I’m drawing a blank re: the woman.)  They are always  professional, courteous and responsiveness to my needs.  Each was knowledgeable about the hotel and the local area. The housekeeping staff cleaned my room well each day. Check-in and check-out was easy. I have recommend your hotel to a friends but I do not know anyone traveling to KW. I attended the Key West Literary and Writing Seminars and then joined KWLS on its trip to Cuba.

We love the Key Lime Inn! Our stay was a part of our anniversary celebration. We were greeted with “Happy Anniversary!” and waiting in our room was a bottle of bubbly, two glasses and FIVE little love notes congratulating us were hidden throughout the room. (We were still finding them the next day!)

The grounds are immaculate and the service is superb. Thank you Melissa, Michelle, Kezzy and Mark for you attention to detail. Our only complaint (squeaky A/C) was fixed within minutes. The beds are comfy and the rooms are very clean.

This property is close to many restaurants, Duval Street an other attractions, but is a quiet oasis from the crowds. The pool is sparkling, and is the venue breakfast every morning. Swings, hammocks and benches around the property encourage relaxation. The staff even recommended great local restaurants to try.

We will return, and you can bet money we will be staying at the Key Lime Inn. Love, love, love!

We were very happy with our 3 nights at Albury Court. The room was clean and very modern.

When we arrived we had no idea where we could park so we asked Gail who sat in the reception and she was really helpful, she also helped us with restaurant tips and recommended some things to do during our visit, 10 out of 10 for Gail!

The few, and not so relevant, downsides were: sweet cereals at breakfast and the room had thin walls, so no major downsides.

If we were to revisit Key West we would also revisit Albury Court.

My husband and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer! We were in Key West for a wedding and instead of staying at the wedding block of the hotel, we chose this Inn to get more of a feel for Key West and it was definitely the right decision. The staff was super friendly and helpful – they even called us when my husband left our car lights on! The rooms were adorable, clean and comfy. The breakfast was great. And the location ideal. We walked everywhere and rented bikes to explore from coast to coast. Overall a lovely stay and we’d love to leave this snow in Ohio for another trip to the Key Lime Inn :)

This is the second time we stayed here. Love the location we walk every where!
Great breakfast ham and cheese croissants and hard boiled eggs. Blueberry muffins and bagels. Good start to the day. The bed was very comfortable. Our only complaint was an incredibly loud air conditioner, but the rest of the visit was great.

It was my first time visiting Key West and we had a great time. We luckily had a nice parking spot right behind the Lighthouse Court hotel, the room was clean and had everything we needed for our two night stay. We didn’t spend much time at the hotel but while we were there we sat by the pool and had Mojitos (two for one price). Nice breakfast in the morning, very basic but good and the staff let us grab food last min which was nice. Although I’d like to stay on the beach next time this hotel is walking distance to a beautiful public beach at the Southernmost Point.  I hope you book at this hotel, we had a great stay!

The Chelsea House was recommended by a friend and we are glad she did.  The location, staff and room were all wonderful.  We had a great time stopping at many spots, enjoying the train tour and all points of interest.  Hogs Breath and Sloppy Joe’s (PIB of the south) were the friendliest places to stop.
