Everything was great. I want to thank Beth & Betsy (and Cindy) at check in and reservations who were very sweet and accommodating.

We just got home from a 6 day trip to Key west with four other couples. Originally we were looking for a house to rent but since our plans were, by relative terms, short on the advance we booked the Key Lime Inn since it could accommodate all 10 of us.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by two of their staff which helped with the check-in process. Both reps were very friendly and helpful and in a short time we were headed to our rooms. I use the term rooms loosely because we were grouped together in several of their “cottage” style rooms. They were very reminiscent of lake cottages near Lake Erie, but only in size and arrangement. All were very well kept, i.e. paint, cleanliness, etc. Some had minor issues with door alignment but that was the biggest issue and certainly did not impact our stay.

Inside the rooms were very clean smelling and nicely deccorated. King rooms had a love seat, chair along with a closet and obviously a king size bed. Additionally, they had small decks or porches for relaxing before or after a trip up and down Duval St. Our Quenn room didn’t have the love seat, but that was not an issue at all. Bed comfort was not bad, we sleep on a memory foam bed at home but we didn’t have any complaints. Space in the bathrooms was a little short, but consider that you’re in Key West; everything is short on space!

Our AC unit’s fan ran all the time which actually helped drown out exterior noise. Being a couple blocks off Duval helped too, but I confess that our group wasn’t always ready to end our night when we returned. I don’t think we prompted any complaints for noise but I would have understood if we had. :)

We have never stayed at the same place twice in Key West in six trips. That will change when we go back because we would absolutely stay here again. Having stayed at several of the name resorts, you just don’t get that Key west feel and one of the other B&Bs we visited in town didn’t want a group to come to their place. That was disappointing.

Bottom line: great location, great staff, very good accomodations. My favorite so far.

My fiance and I just got from our trip to Key West during Thanksgiving weekend! We had a fantastic weekend and loved staying at Chelsea House. The staff was very nice and helpful. I called on the way down to let them know we were running late and I spoke to Bryan. He was very sweet and walked me though all the steps for the “late check-in” process. As it turned out we made just before he was about to shut everything down for the night. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The room was lovely and very comfortable. The breakfast that was offered by the pool in the morning was great! Plenty of stuff to choose from for a light breakfast to get you going in the morning! Both houses are beautiful and the grounds are very well maintained. Also, private parking which is a big plus to us!! The only complaint I have is that I wish there was more counter space in the bathroom. We made it work, not that big of a deal really.

Thanks so much to the staff at Chelsea House for your hospitality! And, thanks to Bryan for waiting for us to arrive and for all your great suggestions!

We’ll be back!!

Thanks for everything

We had a wonderful stay at the Cypress House.  We will definitely be back.  The location was so nice and convenient to the wharf, Mallory Square and Duval Street.   It was perfect!  The room was lovely.

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary with a stay at Cypress House.  The property was immaculately kept.  The room was quiet and well appointed.  Staff was very friendly and attentive.  Breakfast was above the norm too. Very short walk to Duval Street.  We plan to make this hotel our place to stay in Key West from now on.

Our stay was so relaxing, from the relaxing court yard to large walk in shower. The only thing I would like to have had was a coffee pot in the room.

Andrea and I came to Key West on Friday, November 23, 2012 and stayed two nights at the Cypress House. Though this was my tenth trip to Key West in the past 25 years, and Andrea’s second though the first was simply a day visit while on a cruise, I had never stayed any place outside of a hotel. This time my intention was to do what I could to introduce Andrea to the side of Key West beyond the Duval Street experience and try to bring a little more historical imagery into our time spent on the island. The centerpiece to that was to stay in an inn somewhere in “the neighborhood” and the Cypress House was my choice. We truly enjoyed the experience.

It was so nice to be away from Duval Street, to readily access and walk the surrounding streets, to try the establishments that the “Duval Crawlers” generally don’t visit, and relax somewhat. I did throw a lot at Andrea by us walking a substantial portion of west Key West but she did enjoy it. Yes, we were on Duval Street (sadly it has turned into any other tourist trap I have been to and has lost so much of its charm of so many years ago, but oh well), yes we found a few new places coupled with a few old haunts, but we knew that each night we would return to quiet comfort of the Cypress House.

The staff were terrific, the restfulness was comforting, the Happy Hour was “happily enjoyed” and the breakfast sparked the start of each morning. We had a wonderful stay at the Cypress House and if and when we once again are able to return to Key West you can be assured that we will try to include the Cypress House, or maybe one of the other related properties, in our consideration for our island habitation. As well, I will encourage others in our circle who might want to visit Key West, to strongly consider experiencing what we did by staying at the Cypress House.

Thank you for helping us have a truly enjoyable visit to Key West.

Cordially,

Marty Piepenbrok, and in concert with Andrea Haze

This is our 3rd, maybe 4th, time staying at Lighthouse Court Hotel and we were very happy with some of the changes we saw on the property.  It’s been a few years since our last visit and we noticed the shaded area was cleared out and hammocks added, plus games.  Very nice touch!  Including the completion of the Mojito Bar & Cafe area!  If there is any suggestion I would make for an improvement is simply start coffee time at 7:30a instead of 8a.  We weren’t the only ones who were ready for a cup of coffee at that time so I don’t feel like the only crazy early riser.  I got some help from a rooster or two.  :-)  Otherwise, we love the property, our room and bed was comfy, and the staff are so incredibly nice!  I love both Denice and Jeremiah who were ever so helpful.  We’ll see you again soon!

My 2nd time staying at the Merlin. I travel alone from Vermont to Key West once a year for Thanksgiving week. Last week I stayed at the Merlin again. Linda and Ken are the best staffers I have ever come across. Both are very personable, friendly and will do anything to make sure my stay was excellent. I love chatting with Ken and Linda has a warm personality and makes you feel at home. The rooms are always clean. The housekeepers are nice and do a great job. The free breakfast and coffee is nice to wake up to. Overall A++ Best in Key West, will stay again. Give Ken and Linda  raise!!
