I have stayed at approximately ten different hotels in Key West over the last 35 years and visited a lot more but I certainly found one of the best on January 19, 2015 when me and my wife stayed at the Lighthouse Court Hotel for three nights. Marie, at the front desk, was a deciding factor on our staying there since I knew little about the hotel, its rooms and amenities. She has a sweet smile and was very sincere in her welcoming and did a fine job explaining the hotel and what it has to offer. We were pleasantly surprised with our room, E2, which was spacious, clean with a nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. The breakfast staff was very friendly and cheery. Annette, our housekeeper, did an excellent job. We have been in the hospitality/Inn business for over 32 years and know how important a little gratuity is to good workers and therefore, we tipped your staff accordingly.
We go out of our way to interact with people whether they are guests or employees and found the friendliness at the hotel to be superb. The Lighthouse Court Hotel will be on the top of the list for our return visit and hopefully we will bring our kids with us.
We have tried several of the restaurants in Key West and we always visit our favorites. Louie’s Backyard, Pepe’s and Blue Heaven are among those favorites. One of our new favorites is Santiago Bodegas which we had attempted to get reservations for during our previous visit. We again found it to be difficult to get a reservation although we had success dining earlier. The food was delicious and they had a very nice beer and wine selection. It was so good we went back a second time.
