“Charming & in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

The Lighthouse Court Inn is located across the street from the Hemenway House and 1 block off Duval Street, which is close to the action but far away enough for some quiet and R&R. We stayed in the 2 level, 2 bed loft suite, which was clean and roomy with adorandeck chairs right outside the doors. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. The pool is a bit small and I would suggest additional lounging chairs surrounding the pool are needed as 7 is not quite enough as so few chairs compels guests to "save" them with their towels early in the morning. The Lighthouse Court also conveniently has a bar serving drinks & snacks next too the pool. Definitely would stay here again.

As a non-beach loving, fair skinned red-head, I was apprehensive and did not share my husband's enthusiasm about taking a holiday to Key West this year. But needing a break from the "real-world" he made reservations & we made plans to go for 6 days including Memorial Day weekend.
Key West is not inexpensive & the "hotels" range from simplistic B & B's to high price resorts... you have a wide variety from which to choose. But I must admit that the Lighthouse Court was a very welcome & pleasant surprise. As a smaller, historic inn, it allows the traveler to have a real feel for a Key West experience. The staff was friendly with good suggestions and recommendations that included the usual tourist stuff, but also some off the beaten path, locals - only, gems.
Room was clean with limited vanity/storage space in the bathroom. Rooms really vary in price as well as size. But who stays in a room when on vacation? The pool is salt water and the hub of the courtyard. There is a small bar/cafe that serves great drinks & light snacks.. Peter or Ray will fix a great cocktail! The only drawback is the bar shuts down at sunset.. but then it really is time to hit the town.
Breakfast is served each morning 8-10 at poolside. Coffee, juice, fruits, hard-boiled eggs, toast, bagles, muffins, cereal & yogurts. If you need something more substantial to start your day, a Dennys is a few blocks away.
Location.Location.Location. Directly across the street from the Hemingway house, the Lighthouse Court is also one block from Duval Street. It's quiet and literally in the center of Old Town. Bike riding to any attraction or destination will take a few minutes.
The grounds are very lush and we'll kept. Behind the walls there are tropical plants and sitting areas that beckon you to relax.
I must say, I did enjoy the trip. Glad I packed SPF 50, drank margaritas & stayed at the Lighthouse Court Hotel.

We stayed at Lighthouse Court for one night in May. It was so quaint! The room was small but had everything that we need for the night. The reception desk personnel were great and so was Pete, our server in the bar. The pool was small but very refreshing. Breakfast consisted of cereals, bagesl with assorted spreads, cofee, tea, OJ. Very nice. I would stay here again if I come back to Key west.

A beautiful property oozing real Key West charm, warm and welcoming and nestled amongst palm trees. It was exactly as the photos on the website we booked with (booking.com). A small very attractive boutique hotel, beautifully designed with island influences, it has a lovely pool/decked courtyard and bar. Our room was tucked around a corner at the side of the property and was really quiet, even with guests in the room above we never heard them. A good sized room, nicely furnished, huge comfortable bed, the room was a bit dusty. The bathroom was small, but had everything you need, would benefit from a small shelf and a couple of hooks as there was no place to put any toiletries or to hang damp pool towels/swimwear, but that wouldn’t put us off coming here again.

Breakfast is served around the pool and is plentiful, a good selection, delish muffins, bagels and good coffee.

Robbie on the Front Desk is super helpful and really friendly, she’s an asset to the hotel and went above and beyond to help us print a document for our onward journey, and was very knowledgeable about the area and gave good recommendations for dinner, sightseeing, Mallory Square, Duval Street, Southernmost Point Buoy etc. There is no wifi in the guest rooms, but its available around the bar/front porch, so no problem. A truly nice relaxing place to be.

The room rate we had included complimentary breakfast, the hotel is expensive for a 3* hotel for Bed & Breakfast. But it is Key West, it's a historic inn and in a superb location, so much nicer than staying in a big hotel chain. We stayed 2 nights and would have liked to stay longer, it was our first time in Key West, we traveled from the UK, drove from Miami and were exploring the Keys. We will definitely return one day. Great location, within walking distance of bars, restaurants, shops and Mallory Square, one block back from Duval. Highly recommended.

Well I guess I should say that we never stayed there. We arrived on A holiday weekend to find we had no reservation. The credit card was charged than was refunded a couple days before we showed up with no noticed. I do not like to leave bad feedback but this was distressing to be in key west on a holiday with no hotel. The lady at the front desk was trying to figure out what happened and found us a room at key lime inn, which was spectacular. Since they are sister hotels, They knocked $50 off one night. Rooms for both hotels were $330 per night holiday cost.

Hello Laura T,

We are very sorry for the unfortunate error with your reservation, as we would have loved to have had you stay with us at the Lighthouse Court Hotel. We are thrilled to know that the alternate accommodations we found for you at the Key Lime Inn exceeded your expectations, and we hope we will see you in the future. I highly recommend that guests make reservations directly with the hotel instead of on-line through other booking companies as you did, in order to avoid unnecessary complications from arising. We're glad you had a great holiday weekend in Key West.

This is a nice hotel with a good location and a very nice garden and pool area. You get much for a good price. The breakfast was not too good though (very simple). WIFI connection was almost nonexistent.

We're really glad to hear you appreciated the great location and courtyard areas at the Lighthouse Court Hotel.

All stays include a complimentary continental breakfast which includes various yogurts, pastries delivered freshly every day from a local bakery, assorted breakfast cereals, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, toast, orange juice, milk, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, and more. It's a pretty great spread for a continental breakfast!

Getting wireless internet access in all of the guestrooms has been a challenge, but we're excited to let everyone know that we have a company working on it right now. We've been told that the WiFi should be available throughout the entire hotel within the next 6 - 8 weeks. Hooray!
