This was my first time staying with Cypress House. I was a little overwhelmed at the price at first but quickly learned that the price was right in line (or even below) pricing in other Key West hotels this time of year. Check-in was made very easy by the “loading/unloading” parking space. A staff member even came out to help with my luggage. After check-in, I received a nice tour and was given opinions on where to go and what to see. The room was updated and very clean. I also was pleased to see that there was a gate that locked in addition to the locking room. Breakfast and social hours are nice touches and staff is continuously checking to see how you are doing. The hotel is also in the perfect location…walking distance to Duval, the marina and plenty of restaurants and shopping. I will definitely be back!

We had booked the Hemingway Suite for 2 nights during our wedding, since our reception was across the street at the Hemingway Home.  I can’t remember the name of the gentleman who checked us in, but he kindly assisted with getting all our bags to the room since my fiancé hadn’t gotten back yet from his fitting.

It was a great space with plenty of room for my bridesmaids and I to get ready in.  My now husband & I did our “first look” photos on the private balcony and I think they will turn out great.  Mary Simmons was helpful in setting up a room block for us and answering all the questions I had.

Although our stay was whirlwind and we didn’t get a chance to enjoy all of the amenities, we would definitely recommend Lighthouse Court Hotel, and hope to return for a future stay!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lighthouse Court Hotel.  The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and clean (a bit of mildew in the bathroom, scuffs on the walls that could use a coat of pain). The maintenance staff and housekeeping staff were wonderful and responded very quickly when there was a problem with our toilet. Check-in and out were easy and seamless. I would recommend this hotel to friends. The breakfast was great!

Got a suite for a great price. Only complaint was when we got into room the air was off and it was warm in there but it cooled off fast. Other than that we had a great stay and plan to stay in the future.

We arrived in Key West at 3:00pm perfect timing to check in. The front desk staff was very friendly and gave us some coupons for resturants and area attractions that they recommended. We had great parking close to our room and was in full view of the front desk so felt comfortable with our car parked there. Once dropping off our stuff we set out for a walking tour of the area sights. We were gone until 9:00pm after seeing the sunset, performers at Mallory Square, and dinner. We came back for a jacket and went back out for a dessert of key lime pie dipped in chocolate on a stick! YUM!

Felt very comfortable walking back and forth to Duval Street from the hotel. Appreciated all the lights in the early to mid evening that were around but to tell you the truth there was TOO MUCH LIGHT coming through the wooden blinds which made it a little hard to sleep. Maybe some sort of black roller blind next to the window wouldn’t ruin the look of the room and would help keep the light out. The room was very clean. We would have liked a larger shower head as the shower stall is very big but the shower head very small with very little water that comes out. Since there was only a shower it was hard to wash out hair with little water pressure and flow. Really loved the shampoo, conditioner and body wash!!! THANK YOU! A couple more towels would have been nice too as the towels were still damp in the morning from the evenings shower. There was not an alarm clock in the room but I suppose most people either get a wake up call, or use there phone for a clock and wake up. Would have liked to have an extra blanket as it was a bit chilly that night.( Hard to believe but it was unusually cold that night (FEB)). For a continental breakfast there was a nice variety to choose from and we loved the big Oranges! Since breakfast was only from 8-10 I think everyone came and ate at the same time so people had to sit in the lounge chairs by the pool as there wasn’t enough room from 8-9am.. We would have liked a 7am breakfast but not a huge deal. We went back to the room and decided to check out because the gal at the front desk said we could keep car in lot until 2:00pm which we really appreciated because we had to leave around 1:00ish anyway and didn’t want to have to make it back by 11:00. We wanted to go out and do some additional sight seeing and shopping and meet a friend for an early lunch so being able to keep the car parked there was terrific.

So overall our 24 hours in Key West was terrific and will recommend the Key Lime Inn to all! We never got to try the heated pool as it really wasn’t warm enough to swim but it looked clean and well kept. We appreciated the coffee maker, safe and the fridge that was in the room however we never did use them. Thanks for making our trip terrific!

My wife and I stayed in room 22 in Feb for two nights and it was the best ever. My jaw dropped when we open the door the first time. The room was very clean and beautiful and was very big. The grounds were very clean and neat.  The free parking was great in a town where parking is hard to come by.  Told many friends and recommended it.  I would stay here again!

Thanks,

Bob & Jodi

We just returned from a 2-night stay here and was pleasantly surprised by the condition of the room.  I really didn’t know what to expect but after opening the door was amazed at the modern décor of the room.  The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was up-to-date and the TV was a flat screen.  The front desk staff were kind and friendly and they could answer any questions you had.  You could walk to almost everything.  The only drawback was that it was located on Eaton St. which is very busy.  The cost per night was high but that’s Key West in the high season.  Loved our stay!

My wife and I arrived on a Monday for a two night stay.  One of the reasons I chose the Key Lime Inn was that it was one of the Historic Key West Inns that had parking.  It was also located near the center of old town so we did not have to get back into our car once we arrived.  The front desk staff was efficient and friendly.  The room was clean and very comfortable.  The hotel grounds were immaculate.  The hotel is located off one of the main drags but I never noticed any loud traffic noise.  The first thing we did was take a swim in the beautiful pool.  The next morning we helped ourselves at the continental breakfast served next to the pool.  The food was fresh and good.  Our stay was far too short and we hope to return soon.  Thank you.
