My daughter and I enjoyed our first visit to Key West in part due to the lovely stay we had at Lighthouse Court. Everyone on the staff was extremely kind and helpful. The breakfast was perfect….not too heavy, not too light. We both would stay again as well as recommend your inn to our friends and family.

Thank you for making our stay so easy & comfortable.

While in South Florida visiting a friend, we decided to take a little girl’s trip down to Key West, just a one night jaunt (6/2/14 to 6/3/14).  Our experience with everyone at Historic Key West Inns far exceeded our expectations.  The gal who helped us with our reservation was kind and patient, she saved the room for us, until we could finally make up our mind (I called her back within the hour).  We were torn between two of your properties and she assisted us in making our final decision, on the Key Lime Inn.

Upon arrival, before noon; the front desk staff readily pre-registered us and were most helpful in suggesting tours and places to see. We ended up selecting the city tour trolley with on and off privileges as well as a nice narrated tour of the town.  This was money well spent and we were even able to purchase the Hemingway House Tour at a discount through the trolley company. SCORE!

Our trip was plagued with rain and clouds both days.  Upon return to the Inn, the lobby was crowded checking in customers and answering questions, one of the gals at the desk noticed we were patiently waiting, when she found out we were already registered, she excused herself between customers and brought us our room keys.  The room was lovely (2 double beds), clean, and despite its small size, had ample room and storage space for all of our stuff (we girls don’t travel lightly).  Exhausted from a full day of running around, our intent to blaze the town that night quickly came to an sizzling end resulting in us ordering pizza to the room.  My friend was hell bent on a piece of Key Lime Pie, and she consulted with the staff as to the closest place to secure the tangy delight.  A two minute walk to a nearby dinner house and she was back in no time with our desert.

Sadly. we were checking out the following day.  Breakfast poolside was comprehensive.  The area was clean, and staff stood by ready to assist anyone with any questions or needs.  Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful, from reception, to housekeeping, to the groundskeepers and maintenance guys.  Still not done seeing the sights, but still needed to check out, the front desk staff graciously allowed us to keep the car there most of the day and lent us an umbrella for the day’s outing.  We were about 20 minutes late returning, nevertheless, we were greeted with smiles and well wishes for our trip home.

Despite the rain, we had a great time and enjoyed our accommodations.   With hundreds of places to choose from, what sets anyplace apart is the level of service provided and the cleanliness of the place.  I only wish we could have stayed longer. Bravo to the Key Lime Inn and their staff.  I will definitely choose the Key Lime Inn again and recommend to all traveling to Key West.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cypress House.  The room was very comfortable and loved the updated features in the bath.  Everyone made sure that we had everything that we needed and were very friendly and welcoming.  Definitely will be returning to stay again and again.  Thank you for making this the best experience in Key West and our favorite weekend getaway.

We stayed for 5 nights at the Lighthouse Court Hotel in their 2 bed, 2 level room and truly enjoyed our stay.  The hotel is across from the Hemingway House one block off of Duval Street.  Definitely a good location near the action on Duval but far enough away to have some tranquility.   Nice, friendly, helpful staff with an enjoy able continental breakfast in the morning.  I nice little poolside bar offering a light fare during the day.  The pool is clean and the grounds have chairs for lounging and a nice swing.  My only improvement would be more lounge chairs around the pool.  Only 7 chairs just didn’t cut it but otherwise nice place to stay.

I recently spent a romantic weekend with my fiancé at the Lighthouse Court Hotel. We loved the location and the friendly and helpful staff.  It was close enough to the action of Duval Street for when we wanted to hit the bars but enough away from the hullabaloo to have a nice quiet stroll to the Southernmost Point too.  On our return we will definitely stay there again.

This was our second stay at the Key Lime Inn.  We talked about it so much after our first stay, our friends had to come with us this time!  We love the little cottages and overall charm of the property.  It is very “Key West” to us.

Our room was very clean and comfortable.  We enjoyed sitting on our “porch” in the adirondak chairs, it felt like home.

The staff was very friendly any time we visited the front desk; from making dinner reservations to printing out our boarding passes for us – always with a smile.   I even received a call after we checked out to let me know I had forgotten an item in our room.  Excellent customer service!

We can’t wait for our next visit to the Key Lime Inn!

The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful  (especially Kayla).  Check in was quick and easy and one of the two rooms we booked was available early.  The room was small but clean.  The free breakfast had many items to choose from.  Being able to leave our luggage during the day while we waited for the Key West Express was a nice bonus.

Overall, my wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Chelsea House.  It was our first time in Key West and the Chelsea House lived up to our expectations of historic charm meets tropical oasis.  The staff was friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast that was served in the pool area each morning.  Check in/out went smoothly with the folks in the front office offering to hold our baggage before and after check out, so we could explore the town some more. The Chelsea House was in walking distance to all of the great restaurants, art galleries and shops that we enjoyed.  If I had any complaints, they would be minor:  the shower water pressure was just a trickle and could not be increased and one of the posts on our bed was broken. But, all in all, we had a great vacation.  Thank you.

We enjoyed our stay at Key Lime Inn. It was our first time to Key West and your staff certainly was quite helpful especially Melissa. Anything I asked for she took care of it. She helped with our itinerary the whole five days we were there. We didn’t even have to call a taxi. It was done by her. Your staff informed us quite well on restaurants, things to see and places to go. If they did not know the answer they found out for us. As for the location— awesome! Quiet, but yet close enough to walk to Duval. The rooms were clean and the housekeeping staff was always there to please. Breakfasts were served out on the pool deck and quite good. The pool was fantastic and heated made it even better. Checking in and out was quite easy and everyone was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Key Lime Inn as a great place to stay and we will be back to stay there. We are already planning when we can come again. We liked everything in Key West. The food is unbelievable. We ate at most of the restaurants on Simonton and it is quite close.  All the restaurants on that street are great! We rented a moped which made it quite easy to get around. Loved it! Thank you for memories that we will not forget!
