The Key Lime Inn is not where we originally booked to stay in Key West. Our first booking double-booked us and let us know a month before our trip….thank goodness! The Key Lime Inn was fantastic. From the instant we pulled into the parking lot I was happy with where we ended up. It is exactly what I would picture when thinking of an inn in Key West. The rooms have the feel of being their own little bungalows. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. Close enough to Duval to wander from bar to bar and take in the surroundings, yet far enough away for a peaceful night sleep. We will definitely being coming back to the Key Lime Inn when we return to Key West.

We really enjoyed our stay. Very walkable to the heart of town and the south side beaches. Very relaxed but still high quality room.

This was our third stay at Key Lime Inn and each time it gets better! Fantastic room, the people there are attentive to every need and very friendly. Won’t stay anywhere else when we visit Key West. Just wish you had more hotels throughout the Keys!! The gals at the desk were ready for us when we got there and were very helpful in finding restaurants in a short walking distance. Quiet location, and very close to Duval and all the attractions. If you want a relaxing stay this is the place!!

This was our first time in Key West. We are use to traveling, know what we like and are sometimes referred to by our friends as “hard to please” or “pickey”. From the first person we encountered at the front desk, everyone was very friendly and professional. Our room was just right…..it fit our needs, was bright and cheerfull, clean, confortable, and up to date. The location of the Key Lime Inn was perfect and gave us great access to things we wanted to see.

Thank you for an enjoyable stay at Key West.

Our stay at the Key Lime Inn from March 4th through March 8th was fantastic. We had originally booked our stay starting on the 5th, but due to forecasted weather issues at home, we called to see if we could check in a day early and the reservation staff was extremely accommodating and was able to get us in. We arrived and were checked in quickly. The room was very nice, with a king size bed, mini fridge and patio. Overall the grounds of the Inn and the pool were great. We definitely would recommend this Inn. Everything was great and it’s very conveniently located to all the attractions in Key West. We can’t wait to come back!

Conveniently located on Route 1, or Truman Avenue, I was concerned about street noise. However, those fears were unfounded. The parking lot and the lush landscape block the noise from the street.

A feature setting this Inn apart from the other beautiful, historic accommodations is the “cottages.” These charming, two-room buildings make a refreshing change from the typical hotel, and also make for a more tranquil setting, with the noise from adjoining guests is only possible on one side instead of four. The pathways around the property are packed mulch, so very quiet and in keeping with the natural area.

The pool is not huge; it’s appropriate for the size of the hotel and has a comfortable area, including lots of shade and tables for socializing. In the pool, there is a ledge running around the inside, just below the water level, which is perfect for sitting or lying, and staying cool.

The staff are gracious and helpful, but allow you your privacy too. Any request was handled immediately, and they were all quietly attentive to an elderly relative, which was so kind.

The wooden rooms are large with high, vaulted ceilings, fans, dark wood floors, plantation shutters on the windows and complimentary furnishings. The king bed was very comfy, and the extra modern conveniences are there too–fridge, plugs in the bedside lights for charging electronics, along with the expected TV etc. The bathroom has a big shower, and the single sink  has a large top for two people’s possessions. Some rooms have a porch off them, and there are sitting areas scattered on the property–the tree bench is a wonderful sport to swing and watch the world go by.

The Inn a convenient location for exploring the island as it’s near bike rentals and the historical trolly and train. I recommend the train over the trolly. You will learn a great deal about the history and architecture, and come away with a good understanding of Key West. The train is not as closed in as the trolley, and is slower-paced as it doesn’t tear around the outside of the island. It’s a more intimate experience of Key West.

A trip to the Dry Tortugas National Park, in a sea plane is back on my bucket list. It’s not cheap, so we opted for half a day. It’s a day trip, no question. The snorkeling is excellent; you can go around the fort itself in the water, there are migrating birds and white beaches. There is also lots of shade in the fort. Take food and drink, as there is none in the park.

Restaurants abound, and we didn’t have a bad meal. The menus are what they read, in our experience.

I was surprised by the calibre of accommodations and food in Key West, we shall be back, and I probably stay at the Key Lime Inn again–I don’t think I could improve upon it.

My husband and I were only able to stay 1 night at the Key Lime Inn.  When I called to make a last minute reservation, they were very personable, helpful and even recommended local places according to my interests.  Check in/out was speedy and the minute we opened our trunk on our car, there was a very pleasant gentleman right there to help with the bags. The room was lovely, comfortable and quiet and updated. Plus a fridge and coffeemaker; nice plus.  Complimentary breakfast by the pool was lovely; and the grounds were immaculate.  Next time I would opt for a room with a porch.  We could walk to famous Duval Street and other areas. Would definitely stay here again, hopefully for more time.

We had a great time in Key West. The hotel was very close to Duval St. ,yet far enough away. The staff was very knowledgeable and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. We will stay here again.

My husband and I were in dire need of a relaxing escape from a stressful past year and the winter cold. My father had stayed at the Key Lime Inn in the past, and when I told him we were thinking of the Keys he immediately told me to call the Key Lime Inn to book our stay. We booked the hotel with a very helpful Randy who put in a request for a secluded, romantic spot with available parking for our rental car. When confirming our reservation, Shannon was incredibly helpful in assisting us with making some last minute adjustments.

When we arrived, we entered the private parking lot and noticed the beautiful historic inn and the adjacent quaint cottages. Our fingers were crossed that we would be in one of those picturesque buildings and Randy had been so sweet to reassure us we would have a very special getaway. When we checked in, the staff greeted us with enthusiasm and informed us that we had the private cottage in the front that we were eyeing! We were very excited but we had arrived a little early for check-in. No worries because they pointed us in the direction of some great mojitos and our bike rental location and called us when our room was ready. We were elated when we opened the door to our cottage to find a beautifully appointed room with incredible light and french doors that opened up to our own private sitting area. The next 4 days were like heaven.

We would explore Key West on our bikes in the morning and come back to lounge in the afternoon at their incredible private pool that was surrounded by palm trees and plenty of lounge chairs. The other guests and staff became fast friends during those lazy afternoons. When we would go back to our rooms to refresh for the evening, our rooms were cleaned and put back to their original perfect state. It felt like our own private paradise and we have missed it every day since we have been back in the real world.

My husband and I have traveled all over the world and this is definitely become our favorite spot of all. Thank you for making our trip such a special one and we hope to be back living the Keys lifestyle (even only for a few days) again very soon!
