Booked this online the night before- on a whim-GLAD I did! The hotel staff were super helpful with parking (can be an issue). The room is small but cute and clean- perfect for the two of us and property is tropically charming. Rosters were walking nearby! LOVE the location! Hemingway house Cats are right across the street!

My grown son and I went to Key West for a weekend getaway. We found the hotel to offer us a great base to explore the old city. Most everything is within easy walking distance, and the Hemingway House is just across the street. Duval Street is only a block away, but despite that the hotel was very quiet with... More

I have stayed at the Lighthouse Court two times. Each time has been wonderful!! It has a great location, it's quiet, and the staff is super friendly! We stayed for a bachelorette party and everyone in my party loved it! I would definitely stay here again!!!

We recently spent three nights at the Lighthouse Court and were very pleased. Lot’s of positives to share. First, is location. This is the quintessential Key West Location located directly across from the Hemingway House, right around the block from Blue Heaven, and only one block away from Duval Street. Second, is cleanliness. Our room was spotless as were the... More

Great location, one block away from Duval but not noisy. Rooms are being refurbished and the price is really good. For this price though don't expect the works; breakfast is functional and the bar closes at sunset.

Good location across the street from Hemingway Home. Parking is a real problem. No soda machines on property. No vanity in bathroom. Breakfast was good. Mojito Bar & Grill is only open until 6:00 PM. No closet for clothes, only two hooks by front door. Front desk employees were helpful. This being historic property we did not expect the finest... More

We're glad you liked the location and the friendly staff at the Lighthouse Court Hotel. During the daytime hours, guests can always get a beverage from the Mojito Café/Bar poolside, and the CVS which is just a couple of minutes away has a huge selection of soft drinks and sodas. More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Lighthouse Course for 2 nights. We were in C5 (standard room). If I could give this hotel a rating between Average and Very Good for "Good", I would. PROS - great location, smooth early check in with a complimentary cocktail while we waited, quiet, clean, quick response time, free continental breakfast. CONS... More

We stay one night and we were very satisfied. A beautifull setting, nice small pool with a bar. We take the time to relax before exploring the city. Very well located, in the middle of the historical district. We enjoyed our stay and wouid like to go back! Thanks to the staff!

The pool area was nice and had plenty of loungers as well as... More

Extremely small room, noisy air-conditioner, and uncomfortable beds/pillows! It is a shame that the concept of bed and breakfasts have expanded to include any house with rooms. I will probably go back to staying at chain hotels where I have a pillow-top mattress and standard room sizes. Only pluses were the staff, very friendly, and the room was clean.

Hello JKF, We're glad you enjoyed our friendly and helpful staff! Whilst we offer a nice complimentary continental breakfast daily in the courtyard for our guests, we do not classify ourselves as a Bed & Breakfast. The Lighthouse Court Hotel is a member of the Historic Key West Inns collection of small hotels on the island. We offer a range... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lighthouse Court is one of five hotels in the Historic Key West Inns collection and is located next door to the Key West Lighthouse Museum and across the street from the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. Forty guestrooms are spread out within ten buildings, creating a spacious and relaxing environment. Buildings are separated by brick pathways, tropical landscaping, and decked courtyards. The grounds provide many comfortable spots for lounging, sunning, or gazing up at the lighthouse. Guests can relax around the large pool in the main courtyard while sipping on tropical drinks from the pool bar. Just one block off Duval Street, the location affords instant access to some of our favorite things to do in Key West including the Mallory Square sunset celebration, Sloppy Joe’s Bar & Margaritaville. ... more   less
