Wish we could have stayed here for a week! What an awesome place to stay. Close to everything but with the feeling of seclusion.

  1. Perfect location
  2. Beautiful atmosphere
  3. Wonderful room

…and the list goes on and on!

When we got to our hotel we were there about an hour early, but they were able to get us in a room.  Our room was actually upgraded to a king room from the Queen Room we had initially reserved.  The room was very clean and roomy.  And the room was kept cool which was key since the temperatures were very hot when we were visiting.  The continental breakfast was just right with local bagels and pastries.  The location of the hotel was great just 2 blocks off of Duval and just a little over 1 mile walking distance to all beaches.  We had a rental car and parked it on our first day and did not use it again until our last evening when we went to dinner on Stock Island.  Upon our return there were no spaces available, but the lady at the front desk helped us find a temporary street spot.  We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to the keys!

Within walking distance of Duval Street and other attractions; clean and comfortable. Small pool but nice property, parking lot was often full but on-street parking was available at no cost. A little expensive but good for the area.

My husband and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn July 24-30 while we were on our honeymoon. We stayed in a Deluxe Cottage. The property was clean and well-maintained. We did see some damp wood around the porch on our cottage, but that should not come as a surprise in southern Florida. I am sure this is an on-going battle in every property in this part of the U.S. We did not see or smell any signs of mold or dampness inside the room.

This is a quieter part of Key West, with a Catholic Church right across the street. This felt like a very safe location, and we felt 100% safe walking to and from the hotel at night. We only had a car for one night, and we parked on the street near the church without any problems (the lot was full). The location was great- far enough from Duval Street to be a little further from the rowdy bar scene, but close enough (2 blocks) for an easy walk.

My husband and I usually decline housekeeping services when we travel, mostly because we don’t feel the need for fresh linens every single day and we usually tidy up wherever we are out of habit anyway. Housekeeping left us a big bag of fresh towels and extra toiletries just outside our door every day of our stay when we had the “privacy please,” sign on our doorknob. There was a larger trash bin nearby the cottage where we could dispose of full bags of trash. Our trash can had a whole roll of trash bags in it, which was great for changing the trash ourselves as needed. These are small details, but they are details we have not seen in many other hotels.

The AC in our room was great; the week we stayed in Key West, there was no breeze inland, and Key West apparently hit record highs. Every time we walked into that room, we couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief!

Our only real complaint was the temperature of the pool. The pool was so warm it almost felt like a hot tub. Certainly, not very refreshing when the water is nearly the same temperature as the air!

Our two night stay was lovely! The room was everything we needed and nicely appointed. If I had to make a few critiques it would be the following:

The room felt moist and humid, even with the AC going. As a Floridian though, it wasn’t that big of a deal.

The pool was that warm, not refreshing temperature. Not sure if there’s such a thing as a “pool cooler” rather than a “pool heater” but we need some in Florida!

Now the good:

The hotel was central to what we wanted to be near but far enough from the “action” to be quiet.

The room was very cute and I liked the almost “cabin” feel.

The staff were friendly and thoughtful, and made sure we had all of the info we needed on how to get our key since we were checking in after midnight.

The two for one drink ticket worked out nicely, and we used it after climbing the Key West lighthouse.

All in all, I would recommend the Key Lime Inn!

From reservations to checkout & everything in between, your staff & accommodations were excellent. We were treated like “family”!  Thanks for making our trip so relaxing & our memories of Key West everlasting.

Our stay was great! The staff was so friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice as was the rest of the Inn. Loved the local ham and cheese croissants for breakfast. I can’t wait for my next stay.

We needed a quick get away before taking our youngest to college. This hotel was great. The staff is excellent from the housekeepers to the front desk to the young man taking reservations. The grounds are impeccable, the rooms are updated and clean. The pool was an oasis and having breakfast poolside was awesome. The only thing I would change would be to maybe rotate the muffin, bagel selection on the daily breakfast and expand on the fruit offered. After a few days it does get a bit boring although it is delicious! I can’t wait to go back!!!!

My husband and I came for an anniversary weekend.  We had an excellent experience. Staff kind and knowledgeable about area. Good room cleaning service.  Rooms nice. Bed comfortable.  Only one complaint was the breakfast offered. I didn’t expect a full breakfast buffet but perhaps you could improve it.

Would recommend Key Lime for sure.  Loved the beach cottage rooms.  Thank you

The inn was much as described. Rooms nice and cool, pool very hot, office staff cooperative. As others have written, be aware that the parking lot is gravel and mulch walkways may be difficult to navigate. Also, that linens are changed every other day unless special request made. The porch each room has is very helpful for drying all those wet bathing suits and boat shoes. The breakfast is very continental so if you prefer a hearty breakfast, perhaps check with front desk. By the way, nearby Dusty’s restaurant was recommended as good and close and it was…try the stuffed shrimp with crab. One of its best features is its close proximity to Duval and the main part of town. After looking around once we arrived, we were glad we did not choose any of the large chain hotels farther out and near the street construction.
