“Convenient and Quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stayed here August 2-4, 2013. My husband and I had a Queen Suite, which had a wet bar with a mini fridge, microwave, sink and several other things that would have been very convenient had we been staying longer. There was a small couch with a TV and a porch with chairs to relax on. I would not say that the bed was a Queen but it was sufficient though it sagged in the middle a bit. To be honest it was a place to sleep and the A/C was cold which was what you really needed after walking in the blistering August heat all day! The bathroom was nice with a large shower stall. We did not spend a lot of time in the room. We had 2 other family members with us who split a room with 2 queens and it worked out just fine. The pool is small but enough to cool of, the "bar" closed pretty early. Only thing I had was a mojito and it was tasty. Since we took the Key West Express down it was convenient that they had a place to store our luggage until check in/check out. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. I would say that it was expensive but everything in Key West was expensive. An upside to this place was that it was about a block back from Duval so you could take a short walk to Duval but go back to your room and enjoy a little quiet time. We had breakfast each day at the Six Toed Cat which was across the street about half a block up.

Luckily we stayed for one day only. The room was adapted. We hated that it had no outlets for electronic equipment. We managed to find one in the bathroom, above the sink, not the best place to recharge your mobile though, not to mention your iPad. The reception had no plug adapters (plugs are different in other parts of the world) so I had to make do with the European adapter I'd brought. The bathroom is not a separate entity, it's open to the room above your head, so bathroom odors invade the room anytime. This was actually awful. The hotel has only 5 parking spots, so if you've rented a car you may not find a place to park. Check-in is late, at 3 pm, but check-out is early, at 11 am. Though Denice at the reception desk was kind enough to extend that for us as we ended up running late. Breakfast was disappointing, no eggs, plastic knives and forks, no cheese or ham, so if you had thought about spreading anything on your bread, give it up. And they don't supply actual cutlery, even if you ask. Note: of the entire trip, this was the most expensive hotel we booked.

Room Tip: We stayed at room D1, and I was told we got lucky

I travel a lot. I've had the opportunity to stay in some amazing properties. Lighthouse Court goes on the list as a uniquely Key West hotel. The hotel is located just far enough off the beaten path to keep it quiet but close enough you can walk or cycle to just about everything Key West has to offer. The property is old; everything in Key West is for that matter. It's been maintained very well. Parking is, well, challenging. We were traveling with hundreds of pounds of dive equipment, a toddler, and friends. We're not exactly the most nimble of parties. The check-in staff helped us find a parking spot and then went outside and stood in the spot to hold it while we retrieved the car. The staff's performance never wavered from this level during our entire stay. I believe that the Four Seasons could learn a thing or two from the staff at Lighthouse Court. I'd recommend staying here - the pool is central, there's a great continental breakfast served poolside daily, and everything is accessible easily in Key West.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are very small - if this is a problem for you make sure you check out the size bef...

What a gem Key West has in the Lighthouse court. My husband and I had been to Key West in FL several times before and the Lighthouse Court made all the difference in our stay. We were traveling with two teenagers and they put us in a room with two stories. The teens had a nice loft and we all had our privacy! The room was clean and totally up to date with a huge living room, kitchenette, and nice shower. Breakfast in the morning was more than ample, the bar was convenient and we felt as though we were staying with family friends. House keeping and front desk staff went out of their way to make our stay fantastic. Huge bonus having the historic Hemmingway house right across the street and Blue Heaven right around the corner. (Don't miss either) The southern most point and beach were about a five minute walk. Duval street one block over. Just couldn't ask for better or more convenient accommodations. Pool was nice and the whole complex was quiet and nice.

Room Tip: Ask for the two story room if you have more than two quests.

My lady and I spent four nights here and loved it! The hotel is really quite historical thus, the rooms are a bit smaller. However, they are very nicely appointed and comfortable. The grounds are nice and pool area private for afternoon dips. The nice part is that once we parked our car, we never needed it again since you are wiyh in walking distance of almost everything. One block from Duval street, you can walk to any of the great restaurants or fabulous night clubs in minutes. I highly recommend this Inn for the price, location, and convenience.

If you want to stay and feel like the locals this is the place. Perfect location, park your car and you can walk wherever you want. Staff is very friendly. Rooms were nice size. Pool area with Mojito Bar is awesome. Across from Hemmingway House and one block from Duvall Street. You will love this place. Standard rooms do not have a fridge or microwave or coffee pot. But, the continental breakfast is right out your door practically at the pool.

Room Tip: Standard room is one queen size bed. Deluxe room has 2 queen and a fridge and microwave and coffee p...
