We absolutely loved the Cypress House!  Our check-in was smooth.  The front desk staff were very informational since it was our first time in Key West.  Very easy walking distance to the popular end of Duval Street.  The evening liming was nice.  The first evening we had sangrias and the second evening was margaritas.  The bed in our room was very comfortable with plenty of pillows.  The shower had good water pressure and heat.  The only small downfall we experienced was the street noise and the window air condition was loud and we ran it 100% of the time.

This was our eighth stay at the Merlin (7th for our kids- our first stay was for our wedding/honeymoon). JJ and Savannah are 5 now and have pretty much learned to swim in the Merlin pool. We arrived (late check-in) to a note addressed to JJ and Savannah from the staff welcoming them back – they loved the special attention! Linda, Lee and Ken, as well as the housekeeping staff are always very friendly, attentive and fun to talk to. As always, our entire experience was relaxed, comfortable and pleasant. The room (18) was clean and we had no problems during our stay. We feel like family at the Merlin. Thank you!

We stayed at Albury Court April 18th and 19th.  We chose this location because it was close to the Ferry, and still close to Duval Street.  We loved it there.  The people at the front desk were awesome.  Everyone was so nice and welcoming.  They were great with advice on restaurants  (especially where NOT to go, which is so important to us as we don’t like to ‘waste’ a lunch or dinner when we are just visiting for a short time).  Our room was clean and cool when we came in from the heat.  We are early risers,  so it was great when breakfast was supposed to start at 9:00 am, but was always ready earlier.  Our favorite places that we found were Garbo’s Grill and Blue Heaven.  Both seemed like “Key West” in their own way!  I would definitely recommend staying at Albury Court or one of their other hotels!

What a great stay at a great property!  Check-in was fast and easy, staff were friendly and helpful. The room was amazing…quiet, clean, and inviting. Awesome location in the heart of Key West!  So close to everything. Will definitely stay again and will most definitely recommend to friends and family!

Very nice and quiet cottages with a pool. Two blocks off Duval. My friends and I enjoyed our stay there very much and will come back for sure. Thank you for your hospitality.

Excellent experience at the Albury Court.  The room was very clean and felt very spacious with high ceilings that included a skylight.  The hotel is centrally located and easy to find.

We stayed one night here while in Key West. Upon arriving we were greeted by Victoria. She was very friendly and personable.  We were given one of the rooms out by the patio with our friends in the room right next to us.  The rooms appeared to be recently updated and were very modern and clean.

The patio held a few patio table with umbrellas to keep the hot sun off of you. The pool was clean and we did enjoy a swim.

The included breakfast consisted of a variety of muffins, local bagels, hard boiled eggs, fruit, cereal, orange juice, and coffee. This was set up out on the patio near the pool.  We found it quite enjoyable to relax by the pool while we ate our breakfast.

The only reason I did not give this a review a 5 star rating is because the water pressure in our shower was weak.  I believe this issue was just with our room as our friends, in the next-door room, did not have this issue. I did mention this to Victoria (front Desk) upon checkout and she was very apologetic and said that she would have his looked into. Overall, we were quite pleased with our stay and would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Key Lime Inn. After obsessively researching places to stay on TripAdvisor, Hipmunk, etc. the Key Lime seemed like a great choice based on location and price. We were looking for a non-chain experience, with a pool, and centrally located in Old Town to avoid having to have a car, and the Key Lime fit the bill. The vibe is low key, comfortable, and friendly. Our room was fresh and modern with hardwood floors. Breakfast is laid out each morning by the pool and allows for a nice place to eat although we took stuff back to our room. I’ll say at this point, if you’re not a late night type, you may want to avoid rooms in the 30s as these surround the pool which became the place for 20 somethings to sit and drink with boom box (yes a boom box) pumping out the tunes for awhile. Glad we were on the other side of the property. Some other outside seating was scattered around with the odd hammock as well. If your taste runs to local, B&B type places but with more amenities and friendly staff, the Key Lime Inn is a great bet.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights. The staff were very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. It was within easy walking distance of Duval street, just what we were looking for. Something different from the typical mass market hotel, highly recommend.

My husband and I spent three nights at the Chelsea House in April. We were so pleased with the location, two walking blocks from Duval Street. Although convenient to the Key West party atmosphere, we really appreciated the calmness of Old Town. We rented bicycles for our stay and locked them up at the Chelsea bike rack. Our room was clean and tidy and located right off the patio serving breakfast. The pool and pool chairs were perfect and much appreciated after a long day exploring the island.  Would truly recommend a stay here especially if you want to be immersed in the Old Town atmosphere.
