“Comfy getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Neat place next to the lighthouse and across the street from the Hemingway House; one block off of Duval. Nice suite tucked away in the back. The only downs; no closet in the rooms, the WI-FI was iffy back there, and parking could be problematic.

Otherwise, everything else was great.

We stayed here for 4 nights over NYE 2012/2013 and while we smacked our heads more than a few times on the low, slanted ceilings and door frames, we were very happy with the grounds, the room, the bed, the shower, the pool, the food and especially the customer service!

The hotel gladly took care of our bike rental logistics, they were always available for a restaurant recommendation, gave us more than enough information on where to go and what to do and every request we had for our room was answered with courtesy, effienciency and speed.

The cafe on site is very cute and the staff is also very personable. We sat by the pool a few times and it was very quiet and relaxing. This hotel is directly across the street from Hemingway's house, but we never were bothered by any noise from the crowds there. The hotel is in the PERFECT location to see everything in Key West. We parked our car in the back of the hotel upon arrival (first come first served) and never moved it until we left. Everything is in walking distance.

I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Not all rooms have slanted ceilings. We had a King bed room on the outside of one of the buildings...

I was in Miami on business for two weeks, and I decided to visit Key West for the weekend. I only stayed for Saturday night at Lighthouse Court, but I wish it could have been longer.

The staff were very friendly at the front desk and were full of pointers for good places to check out for food, drinks, and sightseeing. The bars/restaurants they recommended were all very local-type places - nothing touristy, which is good.

The room was small, but very clean and pleasing to look at. It had a queen bed, a small closet for storage with an iron and ironing board, and small bathroom. My room's location wasn't the greatest in terms of exterior view (window and glass door look out to a wall underneath the second story), but it was located right next to the entrance to the inner courtyard, so I didn't really care.

The inner courtyard is very nice, with a deck/patio area with chairs, tables, and a hammock, and another area with the pool, tables/chairs and mojito bar (which I did not visit). The whole inner courtyard is nicely lit at night, so it's a place you could sit and enjoy a drink with others.

The location of the inn is great as well - one block from Duval St. and just a few blocks down from where the action starts. It's a perfect combo of quietness and peace close enough to the mayhem.

If I have a chance to return to Key West for a longer stay next winter, I will definitely try to reserve here first.

Room Tip: A second floor room would offer both a better view and greater privacy.

We stayed for a few nights about a week before Christmas. The atmosphere of the inn, with rooms centered around an attractive pool area with small bar, was very nice. We were in one of the small King rooms that opened onto the large second floor deck above the pool, with a view of the lighthouse. The atmosphere was great, the room showed a little wear and tear but was clean and comfortable. If you want spotless luxury, this isn't it, but you will find the historic charm that is the essence of Key West. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Very quaint place located in walking distance of just about everything. This is an older place, so if you are looking for modern, this is not it. You can imagine it probably looks just like it did when Hemingway lived across the street. It is clean but nothing fancy. The staff is very friendly and try to make you feel right at home. The pool is small but very clean (it is also salt water) but not busy. The bar is cute and our bartender was very pleasant. We would definitely stay here again.

Very quaint place, though our room was very small. We had a glass door as well. The bathroom wall didn't go all the way up to the ceiling, so...if you are modest and want some privacy, it's not quiet. There really was no room to put your luggage. For the women that many reviewers made, there are no shelves in the bathroom to put your curling iron, make up, etc. Our bathroom was quite large, but just a pedestal sink. My make up bag was in the sink on a towel. curling iron kept falling off the stool. Our TV almost didn't come in well both nights, but we were so tired from walking around all day drinking that it didn't matter. The breakfast was pretty basic, but you don't need much to start your day. Yogurt, coffee, muffins, toast/bagels. The bar was a nice start to the evening. Parking can be VERY difficult, but we lucked out with a spot on Olivia St I think it was? Right next to the hotel. The hotel is very quaint, charming, excellent propertly. We loved it. Staff was friendly too. Few complaints I made are minor ones. I would stay here again. It was our first time to Key West and want to come back. It seems like alot of complaints, but they truly were minor ones, but things to mention because many people need amentiies that don't bother me so much. I would highly recommend it!!

As so many have observed, the location is ideal and the staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are typical of hte Historic District and they blend in well with the ambiance of the Keys. The room we had was small, but tasteful and more than adequate for our needs. The pool area, Mojito Bar, Continental breakfast were all excellent. Not any complaints here. Excellent property.
