Yes had an exceptional 4 day stay. From the moment we checked in with Ken till we left everyone was helpful and cheerful. Rooms come with a cat if you like :-) Pool was well maintained. Breakfasts were complete with something for everyone.

Our room was bungalow styled and just right for us and in keeping with the Key West atmosphere. This was a great location with Duval Street one block away. We did all our sightseeing walking and didn’t need a car or bike.

Can’t wait for our next visit.

We booked this trip early in 2014 to join a group that would be celebrating a friends 60th birthday. Once booked our year started to fall apart. First grandmother passed away in March, second grandmother passed in May, bad car accident which totaled our car in July, Mom critically sick with tetanus in August, Mother in law suddenly dies in September and then our Golden of 12 years dies in October. I know it sounds like I am making this up and I only wish I was. So glad we had this trip planned for we were two people who I believed really needed it. We had our 11th anniversary in October but with so much happening we both forgot it.

From the moment we pulled in the parking lot I knew this was going to be a great.  What a delightful place from first impression. The cabins were quaint  and had everything we needed and expected for our first stay in the Keys.  The continental breakfast was just perfect to start each day gathered with all of our friends reminiscing the prior evenings events and making our plans for the current day.  The pool was perfectly maintained and gave us a nice mini oasis. The absolute best thing was the staff and how accommodating and polite they were to make sure we had a memorable experience.  I am a wedding planner and will put this wonderful inn on my list to recommend.  Hopefully life will give us  the opportunity to visit again.

Great location to walk to from the Key West express. Clean comfortable room. Great continental breakfast by the pool. Front desk staff very courteous. Kindly allowed us to leave bag in office after checkout. Would definitely stay here again!

We love Merlin Guesthouse. When we visit Key West, it’s the only place we consider staying. It’s conveniently located just off Duval Street and within walking distance of everything in Old Town. We’ve stayed in many different rooms from the economy on the front porch to, most recently, a guest cottage. All have been great–clean and homey. I’ve been told, as well, that most bathrooms have been upgraded. Our guest cottage was well appointed and featured a full kitchen as well as a private bedroom. The tile bathroom is amazing.

As for the staff, well, all were outstanding from Cindy to Linda to Kenneth to Lee. The housekeeping staff were always friendly and efficient. We felt they catered to our every need.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Jordan Del Gato. He is the face of the property. What a wonderful resident cat! My wife and I look forward to to seeing him almost as much as anything else in the Keys. I know we’re not the only returning guests who feel so about Jordan. He was always at our door to greet us each morning. This year, he took a special liking to our grandson, Deacon. A suggestion: perhaps you could have t-shirts with Jordan’s photo and the Merlin Logo on the back. (Historic Key West Inns would be printed on the pocket). I’ll bet they’d sell very well. I know of two folks who would purchase one.

We’ll return again next year and also be sure to recommend Merlin Guesthouse to all who plan on visiting Key West.

We just got back from a wonderful weekend in Key West.  I took a chance and booked a room at the Key Lime Inn and I was extremely impressed.  This is a first class place to stay.  The room was extremely clean, and very nicely decorated. So much nicer than a commercial hotel room. We had a wonderful experience there, the staff was very helpful and polite.  We are already making plans to a return trip in the Spring.

If you get a chance book your stay here, you will not be let down.  And make sure to get reservations for Better than Sex, a block away..  WOW!!

During our 4 nights at the Key Lime Inn in Nov, 2014, we were very impressed with the friendly, professional staff and clean, stylish, comfortable rooms.  The staff was warm, knowledgeable and charming.  Our room was lovely, with welcome extras such as a Keurig coffeemaker, huge flat-screen TV with dozens of channels, real wine glasses and a ceiling fan.  Housekeeping and breakfast attendants were very helpful and thorough.   Our only tiny issue is why we received only 1 bar of soap for two of us, and never another one in 4 days; we managed, moving it from sink to shower, but it seemed a silly oversight with all the extras in the room.  I am sure would have received more had we asked.  And regarding the sights, etc., we did not realize that the hour BEFORE sunset was when visitors should be at Mallory Square or on the coast; we arrived as the sky went dark, exactly on time.  Perhaps the desk could mention it to new visitors.

Thank you for a very nice vacation in a lovely place.

My husband and I came to stay at your hotel for two nights this past week. We stumbled across your hotel on an internet search and we booked it based on its overall look and the closeness to Duval Street. We were so happy we chose your hotel!

We were able to park our car and not get back in it until we unfortunately had to go back home. We were greeted by a wonderful woman at the front desk, Robbi. She was extremely nice and very helpful. She even gave us an upgrade to our room. Our suite was so charming! Adorable two room suite with a modern kitchenette, an updated bathroom with a huge shower, our own private porch, and one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in at a hotel. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best it could have been so we were able to really enjoy some of the other features the hotel offered but we were able to walk every where from it. The included breakfast wasn’t anything special, local baked goods, some yogurt, coffee and juice. Our stay was so great. We have decided that every time from now on when we go to Key West we only want to stay at the Lighthouse Court Hotel and we will recommend this place to everyone we know.

We had a very nice stay at The Albury Court.  Everything was very much in order, and the room, as well as the staff were great.  The only thing I would change is the type of refrigerator in the room.  It did not seem to have much room in it at all, and we had to throw some food out due to this.  Parking was somewhat of a problem.  One had to catch what one could on the street, or pay for public parking (which is not cheap) down the street.  All in all, it was a very nice stay.

Key West for our anniversary was fabulous. We had an amazing time. Our room at the Key Lime Inn was great. It was decorated beautifully in tropical colors. The Tempra pedic mattress made us feel more at home. The staff were very friendly and knew the area well. They had some great recommendations on what to do while we were there. The Key Lime Inn was centrally located in walking distance to everything restaurants, attractions (Hemingway house, light house, butterfly exhibit and lots more). We will definitely be back and stay at Key Lime Inn.
