Lighthouse Court Key West
ReviewsMy recent three night excursion at Lighthouse Court Key West, was absolutely delightful. The location was ideal. It was right next to a charming Lighthouse in addition to being within walking distance of Duval Street (heavily populated.) A local grocery store took care of all my food needs, saving me the expense of dining at the neighboring restaurants. The pool wasn’t anything special, but the serene locale made the experience exceptional. The staff at the hotel was extremely polite, while also being quite considerate to any of my requests. The hotel was particularly clean and well kept. My only complaint would be that I didn't sleep all that well, but by no means the fault of the hotel. The breakfasts made up for any tossing and turning I had during the night though. I had a few problems with the parking but after a while I found a good spot and left the car there, because I could easily walk to everything right from the hotel. I enjoyed my afternoons sitting at the poolside bar. The bartender was good company and advised me on some sites to see. I actually took his advice and rented a bike from a local shop. The weather was fabulous at the time, allowing me to easily spend a whole day just exploring. All in all, my stay at Lighthouse Court was pleasant and exceedingly tranquil. In fact, I’d be more than willing to stay with them again in the future.
