Very efficient check in, with advice offered along with maps on where best to go for food and entertainments. The quaint little building with the room – a small one, with a single queen bed – was nicely decorated and clean. Perfect for a single person like me, might have been a tad small for a couple. It was very quiet. The shower was small but again very functional, though the water was cool. Overall the room was about perfect for what I needed from it. Pool area was nice, and that’s basically where the breakfast area is too; that was fine, but possibly, could have done with something a bit more dramatic/significant – offerings were pretty basic.

I’d thoroughly recommend this hotel. Short walk to Duval, bit far from Mallory Sq. but easily walkable for most I would say. But, a very short walk to the Onlywood Pizzeria – proper Italian thin crust pizza made in a wood oven. Fantastic.

This was our sixth stay at the Key Lime Inn. We have never had any issues which were not immediately taken care of.

The location is great. You are about two blocks off of Duval, but far enough away to make it very secluded and private. There is a free parking lot and if that is full, you can park at their other properties which are immediately adjoining on Truman. There is also free on-street parking across the street. Probably about a 15 minute stroll to Mallory Square from the hotel.

The rooms are very clean and if you tend to sleep in like we do, they have late housekeeping available. This year we were happy to find a Keurig in the room and the wine refrigerator was replaced with a real fridge so you can keep your beverages cold. We always stay in the same room with is large and had a nice sized bathroom with a huge shower. Our room (#4) also has a small patio. Our room has a central AC unit which works great.

The staff are great. Period. When we checked out we were asked if there was anything they could improve on, etc. Very personal service.

Breakfast – I have seen numerous comments complaining about the complimentary breakfast. I don’t get it. This is not a Hampton Inn or similar. The breakfast is nice if that is what you are looking for. Coffee, tea, juices, muffins, bagels, fruit, cereal, etc. No, there is no omelet station, but there are a ton of full service restaurants within 5 minutes if that is what you are looking for.

My only negative is the room (at least ours) could use some minor maintenance like painting, etc. WiFi is strongest when  you are close to the office.

Overall, we love this place and will be back!

We loved our stay at the Key Lime Inn. The room was decorated very nicely. We had a sectional with tv on one side of room and nice, comfortable king-size bed on other. There was a refrigerator in the bathroom that came in handy. We were able to walk to Duval Street which was only two blocks away. There was a beautiful Catholic Church right across the street. They served a small continental breakfast by the pool each morning, not lots of choices but fine to get our day started. We would definitely stay there again.

We have stayed at Key West before, and will continue to come back and recommend it to others without hesitation.  Michaela, Gaby, Scott, and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make our stay as wonderful as possible.  We  have had several positive experiences with Michaela, prior, but on this trip, meet Gaby and Scott, and they continued her fabulous service and attention to detail.  We live in South Florida for nearly 30 years, and visit Key West 2-3 times a year, and love talking with them about the restaurants around, and whats new, and what we found.  We share info with them as well as them giving us ideas.

We have stayed in room 37 for the past 2 visits, and this time it was upgraded with new furniture.  All was great, except the weed platform closest to the a/c needs to be rounded or covered with something soft, as it it a tight squeeze, and easy to bang in the night.

Your Inn is a gem, and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else, especially knowing you are able to retain your staff.  That means a lot to us.

Thank you.

Regards,

Lillian & Ed Carifio

We have stayed at Key Lime Inn twice this year and each time it had been wonderful. I can’t say enough about the professionalism of your staff-particularly your front desk staff.  They are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. They have obviously been well trained and are dedicated to the concept of hospitality. We try to get to Key West at least once a week and would not stay anywhere else. The property is beautiful, the rooms are nice and breakfast is enjoyable. However it is your staff that defines the personality of your inn.

The hotel was fabulous and all the staff were friendly and helpfull. As a visitor from England I thought the prices of hotels and restaurants were extremely expensive. Which is probably why Brits do not visit this part of the world so often. Lovely hotel, though.

Great location – centrally located so that walking to Atlantic or Gulf coasts was only 10 to 20 minutes.  The staff – very friendly and helpful in suggestions of things to see, to do, directions and places to eat.  From the desk staff to the person who was repairing the front steps.

Accommodations – very comfortable and quiet with parking ON SITE.  This was very important to us.  Breakfast was good with good presentation – eating poolside – with a good selection of items plus rolls w/ ham and cheese inside them.

The main purpose of our stay was going out to see Dry Tortugas National Park.  This is a must.  The park has Ft Jefferson which is steeped in history and some great snorkeling. We took the boat out and back and they had a great breakfast and lunch on board. We liked eating at Camilles, 7 fish, and Caroline’s plus a couple of other places.  If we ever go back to Key West – we would definitely stay at Key Lime Inn again.

We did endeed enjoy our stay at Key Lime Inn very, very, much.

Only one thing struck us on our tour of Florida:

In nearly every hotel they did the cleaning of the floor or something around us during our breakfast. We think that the cleaning can wait until later or be done before breakfast time.

I have to say that we are coming from Europe and maybe have other ideas how a breakfast should be. We can adapt easily while travelling. Just because you asked what our wishes would be….

Thank you for asking. Greetings from Bern
