We loved our stay here.  We have stayed at their Lighthouse Court Hotel in the past but it was unavailable.  So Key Lime Inn was recommended.  Very charming cottage style rooms.  Very clean. Just a few blocks from Duval street.  We will be staying here again.

During our Florida round-trip we spent 3 nights in Key West. In Cypress House Hotel we would be happy to stay each time again, we were disappointed when needing to leaving (would not say this for 6 other hotels (out of 8) we visited)!

– perfectly located in Key West in short walking distance (3mins) to Duval Street, Pier, Marina, Bars & Restaurant with a relaxing hotel atmosphere (quiet pool, seating locations)
– our room was nicely equipped, clean, large, modern & large shower, nice seating on the veranda
– Cypress House team was very attentive! Special thanks to Scott who guided us to our room & helped with the luggage (When parking our car at arrival Scott became kind of part of our party already). Not to forget the chamber mates. Both we met also took care for the very good breakfast in the morning. Good feeling to see that employees also are happy to work at Cypress House!
– Naturally in the historic atmosphere one needs to be prepared to climb a few old (but still stable) wooden stairs to reach some rooms. Tables during breakfast were sometimes limited.

When having the chance to come to the Keys from Europe we each time would stay at Cypress House Hotel in Key West again!

We thought our stay there was very good.  It was quiet and cozy, very low key – felt right at home.  Plenty of fresh air.  AC was a bit loud, but worked well. Comfortable bed and pillows. Not many plug-ins for electronics, but we should have brought our electrical strip.  Nice to be close to the waterfront and great places to dine out.

Great stay at the Key Lime Inn of Key West, FL.  Rooms are cute, very clean, nice pool area, and a decent continental breakfast in the morning.  We would offer a minor suggestion to have coffee available early (like 6:30am) or so for us early risers.  Great walking distance to Duval Street.  Would definitely stay here again!

An awesome place to stay. Close to all the action but far enough to be very quiet and peaceful. Love the individual cottage feel. Breakfast is great. Grounds are very warm and inviting. Our room was cleaned every day by 11:00am even though we were told to not expect it cleaned before 3:00. Have stayed at 3 other hotels in the past but 2017 will be our 4th stay at Key Lime Inn. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting the true key west tropical experience to stay at the Key Lime Inn.

Traveling with a toddler is never easy but the staff at Merlin Guest House exceeded in welcoming our family! Our little one was greeted by name daily and was even allowed to help feed Jordan, the cat, and the fish. Our morning swim was fabulous as the staff always stopped to say hi and play and never minded the splashes Giada gave them in return. Morning coffee and breakfast with other guests made the stay feel as if you were among family. Quiet and relaxing yet steps away from bustling Duval St., the perfect blend for a fabulous long weekend.

Merlin Guest House was cozy, exceptionally clean, and provided impeccable service. Can’t wait until we return next year!!!!

This is a very quaint boutique hotel (37 rooms/cottages). It is one of the cleanest places we have visited and we are very fussy. We usually stay in larger resorts and I have to say that this was a welcome change. It is so calm and relaxing. They have a continental breakfast in a cabana at the pool which we found to be very enjoyable. We traveled with another couple & they loved it too. We also met some nice people at the pool.

The staff is very courteous and helpful. They are not stuffy but very friendly & recommended some local activities and restaurants. Matt Harris, Micheall Thomas & Helena couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. We felt like we knew them for years when we left. We stayed at the Key Lime Inn in November, 2016, and definitely plan to return again soon.

My wife and I stayed here for the second time recently (we have already booked again for February). We used to stay at La Concha, but repeated episodes of poor housekeeping (after unaddressed complaints) led us to here. It’s a lovely little place and they had honored our request for a specific room. One day, we left the hotel at 9:30 and asked the front desk to arrange to have it cleaned and made up by 2:00, as we expect to come back to the room to rest before dinner. They spoke to the housekeeping manager and assured that it would be done. We came back at 2:00 to find the room not done. After speaking to the manager in person about the problem (there was an obvious miscommunication), he profusely apologized, got our room cleaned and made up immediately (I wish I could clean my house so fast, BTW). He asked if there was anything he could do to make it up to us. I wanted nothing more than for it not to happen again in the future. We come down a minimum of 3 times a year and want to continue coming to the Key Lime. A bit later that afternoon, the manager personally delivered a half bottle of champagne in a bucket of ice as a token of their appreciation for being their customer. We thought that was a lovely gesture and reinforced our decision to stay there now and in the future. We thanked them for it.

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The office staff on check in and check out were so pleasant and helpful. The young woman at the desk printed out our boarding passes for us, so kind. Our room was great, awesome spot, no complaints, breakfast every day was great, we would stay here again and will recommend. Great job👍
