Cozy Rooms

Pros: - The staff at this hotel were nothing short of AMAZING! They were friendly, helpful, and incredibly wonderful during my stay. - Overall, as a neat freak, my room was quite clean - Comfy bed - Closet area had shelving for bags, shoes, etc. - Location was one street away from the bars on Duval Street, easy walk to many attractions - Hardwood floors and ornate furniture gave a very boutique feel, nice attention to detail Cons: - Size of the room was on the small side for the price, but it was adequate - Shower was so awkwardly small it was hard to wash my hair without banging my head on the other wall - Parking is terrible, there are only six reserved spots for the entire hotel (30+ rooms), and you can expect to park blocks away on the street

Great location. Nice little place.

Only complaint is the comfort level of the bed. If they made them more comfortable it would be that much better.

Wonderful Historical Location

Perfect location, nestled in the historical section of Key West. Staff was very personable and accommodating. Continental breakfast was much more than expected, and the mojito bar was a nice added touch. Would not recommend the Lighthouse Court if you are looking for a chain hotel atmosphere. Lighthouse Court is a relaxing environment offering a perfect vacation spot for those wanting a quiet, friendly, centrally located Inn.

The Blue Heaven is only one block from the Lighthouse Court, a must for Breakfast. Spend the money for their BLT omelette (bacon, lobster, tomato) , outstanding !!

Perfect location

Perfect location - within walking distancce of everything. Rooms small and expensive for what you get - but not as high as most places in Key West. Our bed was awful but staff took care of that right away. Would stay there again but ask for room on front (street side) or at back - ours was on side and had bright light on outside window all night. I need it dark!!

Six-toed Cat just down the street - great sandwiches - too much for 1 person - we shared and were stuffed. Farther toward Mallory Square - Pinchers - great food, great prices. Happy Hour with BYGO all day for the drinkers.

Not worth it.

Arrived early at noon and asked if room was available, I wasn't expecting it would be but was told it would be ready at 3:00 it wasn't ready until 4:00. Simply not worth $249.00 a night. Room is way too small and certainly nothing special. Bathroom baseboard and grout along bottom of shower not very clean. location of room was under stairs with absolutely no view. Curtains on door not very private. There was absolutely no parking, had to walk 3 blocks down to park and had to pay $20.00. Location of the hotel was good and the only other good thing about stay was the continental breakfast was very good.

Great Location

Hotel was central to most of the Key West hot spots. The staff was very friendly and informative. The room was average. Shower was very small. The bed was comfortable and flat screen TV was nice. No bar or swimming in the pool after 10 pm was a downer.

charming, but

location was nice in an historic setting across st. from Ernest Hemmingway's house. The place was cute and clean enough, but very run down.
