“Great location”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

This was our second trip to Key West and our first stay at Lighthouse Court. The location is great and the pool/bar area is really nice. A few things to note: parking is very limited at the hotel, ditch your car if you can. Since there is a bar and restaurant at the hotel there are signs saying no outside food or drink at the pool. This can get kind of pricey if you just plan on hanging out and drinking by the pool. Another member of our group didn't think that the rule would be enforced that strictly, but I was too chicken to test his theory out. The bartenders (especially Peter) were great. We stayed in room E4 which is right next to the pool. Not very private, but we liked being able to see when our friends and family were up in the morning. The hotel offers free continental breakfast, but is was VERY basic.
Our room was one of the queen suite rooms (or something like that). It was nice to have the extra space, but in the future I don't think I would spend the extra money. The TV is in the sitting room so if you like to watch from bed you may want to reconsider. We had nice hardwood floors, but my sister's room above us had carpet.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

We picked this hotel based on price and mixed reviews on another site, and I have no idea why the reviews there were mixed. I thought this place was excellent, and we'll absolutely stay there again.

It's a block off the near midpoint of Duval, next to the lighthouse and across the street from the Hemingway house. Despite the location, it's incredibly quiet. There's a small but very nice pool, a cafe/bar with friendly staff, and plenty of tables and chairs around the pool and deck. There's a spot with games set up in the back under the shade of a huge tree and the lighthouse that we enjoyed quite a bit. Breakfast is free (it's the typical small buffet, out on the pool deck), and the staff was incredibly friendly. There's also free parking out back, which was a very welcome surprise. Leave your car there, and you won't need it the whole time you're in Key West.

We stayed here for 5 nights. All of the staff were SO friendly! The location is good because it is close enough to Duval but far enough away. Nice and quiet every day that we were there. No rowdy young people by the pool. I will definitely stay somewhere else the next time we go though. I know that for maybe a little more money we can have a way nicer room with a view. There are so many places to choose from, you would think they would at least update their rooms. Remember that you walk a lot in Key West, the last thing you want is a rock hard bed to sleep on every night.

Stayed 3 nights in this nice location. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Pool area is very nice with bar for relaxing. Hemingway House right across the street and the trolley system around town which goes by in front is they way to go. As a last minute trip we booked a lower end standard room and got one of a couple of the few remaining rooms that need a refreshing. Stayed for 2 nights and requested a move to which the staff arranged without fuss even on the busy Saturday night. Would stay again on a return to the great town of Key West.

Just got back from another great visit at lighthouse court! Same consistent service and friendly staff. This was a birthday/anniversary trip and my husband and I never skipped a beat when deciding where to stay! I see allot of different reviews but everyone needs to keep in mind this is not a 5 star caviar type hotel. This a down to earth key west property. Its clean, quiet, awesome staff, beautiful property, and awesome location!!! Not to mention fairly priced. I have traveled and stayed in all types of hotels and I can honestly say there has only been one other hotel that I have actually slept this good at. We spend two days and leave feeling like we been there a week. We hated to leave but we will be back! Already planning what we want to do next trip :)

A really quaint hotel across the street from Ernest Hemingway's house in addition to being within walking distance of ALL the attractions in the area. Parking was available at no cost (small area in the back) which was a nice touch, since parking on the streets was EXTREMELY limited. We visited the nearby fort, took a lot of sunset photo's from that park, saw the butterfly house and (in general) took in the local sight and sounds. Certainly, the price was right....we booked this and our Ft. Lauderdale trip through AAA in April of 2012.

I am a local Key Wester. I won a Gift Certificate to the Lighthouse Court in a fundraising prize package. They honored the gift certificate which I shared with my Aunt. Cathi was attentive and even texted me (my preferred way) to confirm my reservation.
The location is not only on a historic site itself, but across the street from world famous writer, Hemingways House. My aunt was surprise to find she was only 1 block away from our favorite spot on Duval 915 /Point 5 Lounge.
Thank you LightHouse court. ~ Frenchie KW
