We checked in with Micheall & Matt. What professionals!  A perfect ‘front’ desk team. The process was seamless and actually fun. We were in a bind – our flights were canceled due to snow and we desparately needed a place to stay. Micheall & Matt actually had to juggle a few things to help us. We were extremely grateful for their willingness to go above & beyond their jobs to help us out . It was definitely one of the best experiences we’ve had (we travel a lot). Everyone that worked for the property was very pleasant. Our cottage was perfect! It is a very nice, clean property in a great location. If we ever go back to Key West we will definitley stay again.

Thanks again to Micheall & Matt for going out of their way & making our stay one of the best we’ve had in a long time.

Only stayed one night at the Albury Court Hotel but very satisfied with our room and service.  Hotel room was very clean and comfortable. Hotel staff was extremely friendly and were more than happy to answer any questions we had.  Would definitely stay again.

We loved our stay at Key Lime Inn. It was a short walk to Duval Street. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were very clean and modern. We would definitely stay there again!

Let me start by saying, THIS was fourth year in a row we have stayed at The Lighthouse Court Hotel in Key West.  So that SHOULD give you a heads up that this will be a positive review. Our positive experience began when I made my reservation with Historic Key West Inns and asked for the closest possible room to the Mojito Bar.  THIS is important for later on in the review.  I was told they would do their level best to get us close to the mojito bar and, in fact, they did just that. Our room was right at the end of the pool, mere steps from the mojito bar. But I digress…

Upon arriving, I explained that we had “accidentally” rented a car for the week so we had driven to Key West.  The ladies at the front desk were quite helpful as they told us where to park to unload and gave me a map to the parking lot 2 blocks away where we could leave the car for the entirety of our stay (After all, who REALLY needs a car in Key West, right?) The desk staff at the Lighthouse Court are always friendly and helpful.

After parking the car, I came back to find the room was lovely! On the middle of the sumptuous king-sized bed was a card thanking us for returning to the Lighthouse Court!  I do not know if there has been some remodeling, but the room was nicely furnished and the bathroom had an AWESOME stone tiled shower.  Everything was well lit, very clean, and the climate control was easy to set and maintain for our comfort. Though we didn’t use it very much, the big, flat-screen TV had a sharp clear picture and nice sound with a decent selection of channels, though I really only watched the Key West Information channel. :-)

And now… THE MOJITO BAR! Yes, it is one of the biggest reasons we come back to this property year in and year out. The bartenders are always very friendly, Mimi in particular this year, and well informed on how to makes cocktails JUST RIGHT! My wife loves their Mojitos and I am quite fond of rocks Rum Runners! They tend to have a few typical beers available, but offered a few more of the “craft” varieties this year.  The bartenders also have a nice knowledge of restaurants and attractions.  Anyone can recommend famous name places such as The Hard Rock Café, or Sloppy Joes Bar, but I like to find places NOT so well known such as Santiago’s Bodega and Charlie Mac’s.  Also, Gary the Cat from across the street at the Hemingway House hangs out around the Mojito Bar/Pool area and very friendly.  For me, a cat lover, that’s a nice plus!

The housekeeping staff is ALWAYS very friendly.  They smile when you ask for something and are always polite.  I’ve noticed that many of them have been there since we first started staying.  THAT is saying something, as a former motel manager, I know it is hard to get AND KEEP good housekeeping and maintenance staff. And the staff at Lighthouse Court are good as the rooms are ALWAYS very clean. I am always impressed with the staff at this property.

Here’s a suggestion for anyone new to the Island.  When you walk down to Mallory Square, and you will at some point, stop and have lunch at The Conch Shack.  Every place seems to have Conch fritters on their menu, but I am fairly certain only The Conch Shack has CRACKED CONCH and it is amazing! Order it spicy with fries and an ice cold tall boy PBR.  Not the best beer, but man does it go great with spicy seafood! Then walk over to El Meson De Pepe. They do have GREAT Cuban food, so keep that in mind for another meal, but inside the building is a wonderful cigar shop with a knowledgeable  staff that won’t try to force the really expensive cigars on you.  After you make your selection, go to the bar outside, fire up that cigar and order a mojito, or an El Presidente Dominican Pilsner beer and relax! :-)

So if you are planning a trip to the Key West, you can’t go wrong with a stay at Lighthouse Court Hotel. It’s so close to the lovely chaos that is Duval Street, with its shops and nightlife, but the Lighthouse Court is so quiet you can relax all you want.  A 10-minute walk in virtually any direction will get you to the Gulf, the Atlantic, the Southernmost Point in the United States or wherever you want to be.  I highly recommend the experience.  Now excuse me, I need to go sit in the cold Iowa weather with a Dominican cigar and a tropical drink and WISH I was back in Monroe County!

Cheers!

No complaints at all! The room was clean and the location was convenient. The pool was heated. Even though the street in front was busy, once you get back on the property you would never know. We were within walking distance of everything we needed and wanted to do. We stayed 2 nights and would come back again!!

We had a very nice stay at the Albury Court Hotel for two nights. Everyone was very attentive and supportive about the parking situation and in helping to plan trips in Key West. The Hotel is about 5-10 minutes away from Duval street, which is a very good walking distance. The room was clean and everything was in very good condition. The breakfast was superior to other continental breakfasts we had in other hotels. Thanks for everything.

It is a fortunate circumstance that my job brings me to Key West on a regular basis. We usually stay at hotels right on Duval Street or one of the hotels on the east end of the island. This weekend none of our normal options was available but a very helpful lady who works for Signature Aviation at the airport suggested we try one of the Historic Key West Inns hotels. We ended up at the Key Lime Inn. It was our lucky day. We were welcomed like old friends and were delighted to find an atmosphere reminiscent of the old Key West. We were just a very short walk from the attractions of Duval Street but our quarters provided a quiet haven perfect for rest and reflection. The morning call of the roosters and the tolling of the Church bells from across the street were the perfect punctuation to a memorable stay on old Cayo Hueso.

We had a wonderful stay at the Key Lime Inn.  The staff went out of their way to ensure they understood what kind of an experience we wanted and directed us to where we could find it.  Michaela (not sure of the spelling) was friendly and funny.  She made us feel welcome for sure.  Definitely recommend a stay and hope to be back soon!

We had a great 6 night stay in room. The room was super quiet which made for a relaxing vacation. I would definitely recommend the hotel to others. All the staff we encountered was friendly. Great location near Duval! We would definitely come back to the Cypress House Hotel again.

Perhaps it was by chance that I booked this room for 5 glorious nights, but I enjoyed the balcony that enabled me to spend time catching up on my literature, politics and news on my iPad, and just enjoying the waving palm trees above, while sunning in between a dip in the pool or a visit to the hammock below. Linda was my favorite staff member and, of course Jordan who ascended the steps to visit on one occasion. The breakfast was just enough to fuel till the afternoon. My fave resto was La Trattoria on Duval with good food and the most attentive staff I’ve found even in NYC where I live. In all, a restorative and relaxing vacation at a pace and tempo you will like to emulate. Oh, and the skylight above the shower is inspired.
