This was our first stay at Lighthouse Court Hotel. When we checked in the young woman at the desk….did not get her name was very pleasant and explained everything about the property while highlighting our receipt. When she asked if a room on the second floor was okay we said yes, but we’d need help lugging our bags up the stairs. She grabbed both bags and carried them up the stairs for us! We ran into the young man (can’t remember his name – sorry) later and asked for another luggage rack and he appeared lest than a minute later with one!
We found our room to be small and clean and nicely appointed. We only needed a place to sleep and shower so small was fine with us.
We could have used a few small shelves….especially in the bathroom (where there is room for a small side between the sink and the wall)…..for toiletries and a few more places to hang wet suits and towels (behind the bathroom door?).
The air conditioner was loud (they supplied ear plugs but I didn’t mind the hum) but kept the room nice and cool during a steamy weekend.
The bed was really comfy, the shower had nice hot water and good water pressure (yay!), and the supplied beach towels were appreciated.
The café advertised snacks and cocktails but the only snacks I saw were a few bags of potato chips and some not-very-cold sodas.
The breakfast was okay but I would have liked white bread rather than rye or bagels and the hard-boiled eggs had little taste. The croissants had ham and cheese in them to many (vegetarian) guest’s surprise.
The highlight of our first morning was meeting a friendly black cat who we later found out was named Gary Cooper. The second night we came in at about 11 and called his name. He came trotting over, followed us to our room, jumped on the bed, posed for a few photos, took a cat-bath, said “mrow, mrow” and left to continue his nightly rounds. We are cat lovers, so his visit was welcome.
All in all our stay was pleasant. We wanted a clean room with a good location (we were directly across from Hemingway House) and that’s what we got. We are frequent KW visitors so we’ll probably stay there again.By: Debra Duff on September 14, 2015
