Our stay was great from the moment we arrived until our departure. We were greeted the minute we arrived and quickly checked-in. Although we are frequent visitors to Key West, the staff recommended a restaurant that was new to us. It was an awesome restaurant and now on our list of restaurants we will frequent on future visits. We will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn on Monday, July 21st for 2 nights. I really recommend this place, staff was very friendly, rooms were really nice and the breakfast was everything that we needed to start our morning. Very close walking distance to Duval street. Definitely staying there next time we visit Key West.

My husband and I had a great stay at The Cypress House. All staff were friendly, professional and willing to help with recommendations on things to do as well as restaurants to try. The Liming Hour is great- a different appetizer each night and a delicious (alcoholic) beverage. Breakfast was also very good. The main (hearty) breakfast item was different each morning kept warm in Le Creuset in the kitchen. They also served muffins, bagels, toast, yogurt, fruit (apples, bananas, oranges), orange juice and coffee. We felt at home and comfortable our whole stay. We stayed in Room #1 which in in the main house on the first floor (corner of Simonton and Caroline). The room was clean and nicely decorated with a great porch view. Very convenient location for people watching on the porch and going in and out during the day…also close to the kitchen. The one downside- it was a little noisy at night. Our room was close to the front door so we could hear it open and close when guests were coming and going.  There was also a decent amount of street noise. We had a 5 star stay overall and would recommend The Cypress House to anyone going to Key West.

We stayed at Merlin Guesthouse for one night on a quick trip to Key West at the end of our vacation. We had originally booked a one-bedroom cottage for 2 couples, but decided at the last minute to see if 2 queen rooms were available. The wonderful managers were happy to accommodate our request and made our rooms available quickly.

The economy queen rooms were quite small, but beautifully decorated. The only thing that would have been a nice addition in the room is a small refrigerator, but otherwise the room was fine for a short stay. The hotel is centrally located just a block or two from Duval Street, which was wonderful as both sunset at Mallory Square and Happy Hour at Southernmost Beach Cafe are usually on our agenda while in Key West!

The continental breakfast was lovely.  The bagels and orange juice were delicious and extremely fresh. The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful.  All in all it was a lovely stay for a great price and we hope to stay at Merlin Guesthouse (or one of their other properties) on our next visit to Key West.

Highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed at the Chelsea House this weekend and we were very happy. The staff was beyond nice and even went out of their way to help us book a fishing charter.

The room was great, very clean and comfortable. Location was perfect and the parking on the property was very convenient as most places do not have that option. We loved the pool and the water was very refreshing.

The location was perfect as it was within walking distance to Duval Street. This is definitely the place to stay when you visit key west!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently for 3 nights. I had read great reviews and I liked that the inn was quaint and had an historical feel. We loved the location and that we were able to walk to Duval. The only problem was the fews times when we did need to use our car, the hassle of finding a parking spot even remotely close to the hotel was not ideal. The spots in both the Key Lime Inn parking area and the Chelsea House were always full. Our room was #15 and we didn’t like that it was so close to the main lobby and parking area. We could literally here every car drive up and every person walking by. Other than that the room was beautiful and clean. I loved the high ceilings and the little swing on the tree! We will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Key Lime Inn. The room was clean, cute, and looked exactly like it did on the web-site.  We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great value off of Duval Street.

We really enjoyed our time at the Albury Court Hotel. It was a delight to be able to walk to the historic district and the return to a cool, quiet room.

Thank you!

We stayed at the Key Lime Inn for our 45th Anniversary trip and the staff went out of their way to make it special for us. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the staff was so kind in assisting us with things to do.  We stayed in a Deluxe King Room #16 that had a seating area inside with a small porch, as well as several shaded seating areas outside to enjoy. It was very quiet, clean, neat and a couple of blocks from Duval Street which is the main street and everything was within walking distance from the Inn.  We even walked to Mallory Square to see the sunset. If you don’t care to walk, you can rent bikes, scooters or use a cab. The City View Trolleys will take you to 8 points that you can hop off and on at any stop and see the entire city. We never moved our vehicle after arriving.  The pool was very nice and clean with the breakfast bar by the pool in the mornings which was very good and all you needed to get you started on you tours.  We will definitely stay there again.

I highly recommend the Cypress House when visiting Key West. First of all, the location is amazing. The inn is only steps away from the excitement of Duval Street, yet in a quiet neighborhood. Secondly, the room was very spacious and comfortable. Last, but not least, the staff at the hotel was very helpful and accomodating. They truly make the guests feel like VIPs! My wife and I will defintely stay at the Cypress House again on our next trip to Key West.
