We spent 2 nights for our first visit in Key West.  Cypress House Hotel had many of the features we were looking for.  It was a beautiful room- very large and roomy and very comfortable.  The location of the hotel was perfect for us.  Within walking distance to everything.  The hotel had great common areas for breakfast, happy hour and the pool was very nice.  We did feel that breakfast was good but decided to eat out the 2nd morning.  The staff was amazing. Great recommendations on things to do in the area and very welcoming.  We loved this stay and hope to be back soon!

We had a group of 7 couples and stayed at the Chelsea House Hotel for two nights Feb. 1-3, 2017.   The location is close to Duval Street and within easy walking distance to main attractions in Key West.  The staff was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.  The beautiful old buildings had been renovated and each room had its individual and unique charm.  Although the rooms were not large, they were very clean and beds were very comfortable.  The pool area was very nice, lot’s of seating and a good space to relax and visit with our group.  Plenty of parking for cars and motorcycles.  This was our 6th trip to Key West and we will return to the Chelsea House Hotel (previously stayed at another hotel but they have raised their prices to a level we were not willing to pay).

We were guests at Key Lime Inn on January 31st for one night.  We were so impressed with the folks at your front desk, especially MICHELE!  All were courteous and helpful and Michele went out of her way to make our visit more pleasurable.  The facility was very clean and comfortable.  Thank you!

Cypress House Hotel was the perfect place to stay!  The location was just a street away from Duval so quiet enough to sleep but close enough to party on the famous Duval.  The room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space to move around.  Everyone  on the staff was very helpful with directions, parking, restaurants, and just all around a courteous group.  My favorite about the Cypress House Hotel was the “liming happy hour!”  There was a different theme everyday and all was complementary.  You sit outside on the porch with others that are staying at the hotel as well…meeting new faces while sipping on a Key West punch!  The breakfast was perfect as well…nothing to heavy which was nice since we did lots of walking.  Oh, there was also a nice size mini fridge in the room…will definitely be back!

My husband and I enjoyed the exquisite accommodations at the Merlin Guest House.  The king suite was a wonderful retreat for the two of us. Breakfast on the patio provided a wonderful start to our day.  Afternoon tea was a sweet treat.  The bed was just like home and the the decor and bathroom furnishings were top notch.  Check in and out was smooth. Park and forget about it.  We loved walking to everything in the heart of downtown Key West.  We walked to the beach each day and the sunsets were beautiful. We didn’t want to stay on Duval street due to the hustle and bustle.  Simonton street is quiet and is nice to take a stroll on.  Off the Hook Bistro across the street was fantastic and there is small restaurant tucked back off of Duval called Only Wood which was quite yummy.

We definitely will be returning to the Merlin Guest House in the future.

We spent three nights at the Chelsea House.  It was our first visit to Key West, and we booked based on on-line reviews.  Chelsea House delivered on all levels!  The hotel is conveniently located close to Duval Street yet far enough away that you don’t hear the noise.  The house was quaint.  Built in 1891, it is not equipped with an elevator, and that was a bit inconvenient.  Our room was clean and well maintained. It was not a large room, but in Key West, we weren’t planning to spend much time indoors!   We did think it was unusual to not have a clock in the room.  The pool area was lovely!  Breakfast was good.  The grounds were clean and welcoming.  The staff was very courteous and helpful, giving us advice and answering all our questions.  I would definitely recommend the Chelsea House Hotel to anyone visiting Key West.

We have stayed at the Merlin Guest House the past 6 years and won’t stay elsewhere. We love the location, the comforts and friendliness of all of the staff, which is why we return year after year, and why we referred our friends who have now stayed the past 2 years.  Oh, and we LOVE Jordan del Gato!!

One suggestion would be to add more hooks to hang things up so as not to have the room seem so messy.  🙂  Other than that, just keep doing what you already do so well.

We had a great time at the Lighthouse Court Hotel.  Very convenient location.  Our particular room did not have much direct sunlight but the property overall seemed very nice.  The restaurant and bar coupons were also great.

We stayed at the Lighthouse Court Feb. 1-3 2017. Wished we had booked 3 nights. Our check in was made easy due to the kind and courteous staff at the reception desk. Our room was comfortable and very clean. Continental breakfast was included and that was a huge plus to start our day.  The baked goods were always fresh and very tasty. I felt for a continental breakfast it had lots of choices.  This hotel is in a perfect location.  We could walk everywhere from the Southernmost Point to Mallory Square.  Can’t wait to return to Key West next year and we will definitely stay at Lighthouse Court Hotel.

Laura and Kyuell, at the front desk, were extremely friendly and very helpful. Both gave very good suggestions of restaurants in the area and even gave us some coupons. The room was very clean and the housekeeping staff were great as well. Check in and out process was very quick and easy. Even though the location of this property is in a very busy location, once inside the gate everything seemed so quiet. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family. The only slight issue I had was the water pressure from the shower which was not really that big of a deal. Our experience here was wonderful and looking forward to coming back.
