Our trip to Key West was a sort of spur of the moment plan, and I managed to get lucky by booking the second to last room available for the three days we stayed on the island at Lighthouse Court Hotel. At first I was worried that my rash booking based on the inexpensiveness of the hotel in comparison to other places on the island may have been a mistake, but when we arrived we were more than pleased.

We got to the hotel a couple of hours before check-in but it wasn’t a problem because the staff at the front desk courteously sent us to the bar and pool area to relax after our six hour drive while they finished cleaning the room but we only had to wait for a few minutes before they called us back, saying the room was ready. The room was everything and more that we could have hoped for, it was clean and most importantly, it smelled clean! The bathroom was very spacious and the room was classically decorated and comfortable. Aside from the bed that was oh-so-easy to sleep in, the location of the hotel was everything!

The fact that it was steps away from the Hemingway house was an excitement for me and once we found a place to park our car we could walk just about everywhere we wanted to go because Duval street with all of its shops and galleries and restaurants was only one block away. We’ve only been back home for a week but I’ve already recommended Lighthouse Court Hotel to several friends and coworkers because our stay there was beyond perfection. The only thing that could have improved it was for us to stay longer!

If you want the full Key West experience, Albury Court Hotel is your best bet.  Just a couple of blocks from the restaurants/bars along the Marina & only 10 minutes to Duval Street.  Quaint place that should meet all of your needs.  Clean, comfortable & great location.  I’ll definitely be back.

Our stay at Chelsea House Hotel was absolutely perfect! The service was attentive, kind, friendly, yet not annoying or continuously in your face, as can sometimes occur in an effort to “over-please guests” as I have experienced elsewhere. We stayed in room 19, and the French door leading out to the little garden patio was a very nice touch. Our room was perfect. Beautifully kept, very clean, lovely decor, we were absolutely at home in our room. The surroundings are exceptional; very well kept, tropically charming, however not too precious or manicured to the level of uncomfortable. We were walking distance to everything; the harbor, Duval Street, tons of great little places located off the main drag… we were enthralled by the offerings of Key West, once removed from the serious tourist traps. Chelsea House was entirely idyllic. There remains a relaxed sense of comfort everywhere, and relaxed is exactly how we felt staying here! Upon returning home, we learned this awesome little spot is rumored to be “haunted,” and that added to the charm and appeal of staying in a historic property. We cannot wait to return!

Unfortunately I cannot remember her name, the red-headed woman helping us at check-in and check-out was very friendly and helpful in recommending activities and places to eat.

On our last day she suggested Azur for lunch and, though I am usually cautious about hotel recommended restaurants, Azur had the best fried snapper sandwich this native Floridian has ever had! And as a cherry on top the hotel gave a coupon for a free mimosa!

The room was quaint but very clean and cozy, perfect for a weekend getaway with the significant other. We did have one very minor incident when housekeeping entered the room around 9:30 AM on Saturday, and while both myself and girlfriend laughed it off, someone else could have been caught in a very precarious position!

The location was absolutely perfect, only a few blocks from a marina that served as a wonderful path to restaurants, shops, and of course Duval Street. We were close enough to the action to have 2 great nights out on Duval but far enough away to walk back, relax and sleep well in the quiet of our room.

Weary from fun on our last morning, our check-out time was extended with a simple phone call and we made our way back to reality a little more casually and well rested. As a side note, while parking is not included with the room, there is absolutely no problem finding parking on the street or in the nearby garage and we were there during lobsterfest!

Overall the stay was wonderful and you cannot beat the location or service; we definitely will stay there again on our next Key West adventure. Someone has to enjoy that sun-deck and sparkling pool!

The people you have working there are very kind and considerate. We asked for suggestions on places to eat and were given wonderful places to eat fish (BO’s) and the food from Carolines was great. Our room was a bit smaller than we expected but it served the purpose. Luckily, we were on our motorcycle, or we would have had to fight for a parking place. All of staff were helpful and we really enjoyed our vacation. We would most certainly recommend your hotel to our friends and family.

I decided to take my wife on a special trip for our 35th anniversary.  I made arrangements for a 2 night stay in Bonita Spring, FL, followed by a Sunday-Monday stay in Key West at the Cypress House Hotel.  Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Dennis who explained that our room wasn’t yet ready.  He offered to hold our luggage while we took a tour on the Conch Train.

Upon returning to the Cypress House,  he escorted us to our room.

He unlocked the door and as we entered,  the bed was covered with rose petals in the form of “35”.

He explained that our daughters had arranged for an event planning company to decorate the room and that is what delayed us getting settled.

Dennis was so polite and helpful with directions to most of the sites we wanted to see. The happy hour was delightful and we met some very nice and interesting people.  This location is very central to Duval Street and all the restaurants and shopping one could ask for.

The Cypress House welcomed us and made us feel like we had been there many times in the past.  Our stay, (though brief) was one will will never forget. We will definitely stay at the Cypress House when we plan a return visit.

I had an incredible stay at your hotel. We arrived quite early from our 3pm check in time and your staff went out of their way to get me in a room since I was just staying for one night. It was great being able to check in and not have to worry about coming back at 3. The ambiance was excellent as well. Very quiet and relaxing. I will definitely  be coming back on my next trip down!
