We had a nice stay in a small house in the gardens of this historic inn. It is very central, so you do everything by foot or bike, but it is not loud there.  The rooms are very nice, modern and clean. The staff is very helpful und friendly, we were really treated as guests. Complementary coffee lounge und cooled ice tea.

We would choose this hotel again, a nice stay.

Where to begin…

This year, my boyfriend and I took our first vacation alone together. We had been planning for months and were very excited. We arrived to the Key Lime Inn where we were greeted by very friendly front desk staff on a Monday afternoon. We spent the rest of the day shopping and had a wonderful dinner at the Conch Republic Seafood Company.

The next morning, while getting ready for the day, my boyfriend had a seizure. He has never had a seizure before I was terrified. I called 911 who immediately came to retrieve him. While still in shock and trying to figure out where the hospital was even located, I received a call from the front desk. The woman was extremely sweet. She informed me that she had gotten me a cab and it was waiting outside. I was more than grateful.

We got back from the ER late that afternoon. I will admit I was slightly freaked out even being in the same room where his seizure happened. When we returned, the amount of care and concern from the hotel staff was more than I could have ever imagined. Everyone was so wonderful. Anytime they saw us for the next two days they went out of their way to ask us how were doing and see how my boyfriend was feeling. They even gave me some fruit the day we got back as my boyfriend hadn’t eaten.

One staff member my boyfriend and I will never forget was Clement. He went out of his way numerous times just to say hello and make sure we were doing okay. He really made us feel welcome. Check out was also great, the women at the front desk were sweet and even wrote my boyfriend a postcard.

After everything that happened, my boyfriend and I felt like we would never want to go Key West or the Key Lime Inn again in order to forget the memory of his seizure, but after the AMAZING service and genuine care and concern we received from the employees we would be crazy not to.

Thank you Key Lime Inn. You made a very scary experience for my boyfriend and I a little more comfortable. You made us feel like appreciated guests. It is scary to be away from other family and friends when incidents like this occur but the Key Lime Inn staff treated us with the same kindness and care that family would.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Key Lime Inn, what a wonderful tropical paradise: friendly staff, great breakfast, clean  spacious rooms and grounds including free parking. Love that everyone has their own outdoor patio area. Two blocks from Duval Street, restaurants and shopping . We will recommend it to all our friends and family.  The next time we are in Key West, this will be the only place we stay.

Just returned from a 2 night stay @ Key Lime Inn. Key West was jumping with a songwriter ‘s festival , a cruise ship in port & the normal Duval St “mania”. My husband had been stationed at the Naval Base 50 years ago & had not been back since.  That said, Key Lime was a great place to come “home” to after touring all day on the “hop on, hop off”!  We were in room 10 & it was clean & well kept & suited our needs. The staff was friendly & helpful & the light continental breakfast served poolside was just enough to start your day. We loved coming back to the pool to cool off after a day of touring & we loved sitting on our palm shaded 3rd floor veranda to enjoy a late afternoon glass of wine!  We plan to return!  Do not miss the Truman Little White House tour & the restaurant, Blue Heaven!  PS-off street parking at the hotel is a big plus!!!

Please thank your staff at the Key Lime Inn for providing us with such a wonderful experience. As this was our first trip to the Keys (from April 28 to May 1, 2014), we really did not know what to expect. Your staff, especially Michelle (sp?), really made this one of our best hotel stays. When we arrived we were quickly greeted by Michelle and upgraded to a room with a patio. The room was absolutely lovely and so clean! The staff was also quick to assist us with any questions. The location was perfect, as were the grounds and the buildings. I really cannot say enough about this hotel and have already bragged to every person that will listen.

Stayed at the end of April 2014 for two nights at the Key Lime in, and it was very good.

  • Excellent location, close to lots of activities but slightly off the main path.  It was easy to find and the fencing/trees makes it feel very private.  Parking was easy and they had nice luggage carts if needed.
  • The room was very nice. We had the smallest space; the only change I would ask for is a refrigerator as standard.  The bed was comfortable, nice shower, and the room was clean and fresh. Having the private back deck was also handy.
  • The front desk was friendly, no issues; we actually had somehow been reserved with two rooms, but they quickly corrected the issue with no fuss or additional cost.
  • Pool was a nice hang out space. Quiet and clean.
  • The continental breakfast was very good. All the food was good in Key West, so standards are higher, but enjoyed it very much.

We’d definitely return – excellent package overall given the price to other compared properties.

The Inn was a last minute decision based on my partner and I spontaneously staying on the Key.  Key Lime offered us a wonderful rate.  We stayed in Room 13.  The vaulted ceilings made the room feel oh so spacious.  However our favorite part was the bench swing attached to the tree near the breakfast area.  It is there that I sang songs arm and arm with the love of my life…. a memory that will forever be associated with the Key Lime Inn.  Upon checking out we engaged in a wonderful conversation with Melissa and Micheall.  They we’re both so entertaining and informative about the island as we grilled then for information.  in a nut shell, our visit was fabulous and we will stay again soon. Thanks for a great memory!
