Upon learning my best friend (a Key West resident) was giving birth the Friday before a holiday weekend, I knew I had to act fast looking for reasonably priced accommodations.  Since the primary purpose of the visit would be meeting the little guy at the hospital, I thought it would be nice to stay somewhat close to the action. Key Lime Inn did not disappoint. My near midnight check in was a breeze, keys were ready and the room was far larger and welcoming than I had imagined. We even had a private patio. The only thing that would have possibly made the stay better would have been a jacuzzi. ;)

The hotel is just 2 blocks off Duval, but about 10-15 minutes from the busier part of it. Since I tend to gravitate to more locals restaurants on other parts of the island, the location didn’t make a big difference, but I would definitely stay here again. Everyone is so nice and even if the parking lot gets full the street parking was safe and plentiful even on a sold out weekend.

Finnish couple:

Hotel was very cosy. Room with queen size bed nicely decorated, clean.  Big bathroom.

Weather changed rapidly from 83 F  to 55 F during the night, but nice breakfast warmed us. We appreciated hotel´s adult atmosphere.

Staff very polite.

Warmly recommended :-)

From making the reservation to a sweet note before I left Key West, your front desk person, Gabby, was an absolute delight.  Gabby loves her job and that can be seen with the smile, when she sees a person, to her helpfulness in giving out information and making suggestions.  She knew exactly from my explanation what I was looking for.  She gives 110% every day.  Thank you to her! and Thank you to you for having Gabby on your staff.  I look forward to another visit to Key West, and intend to include Key Lime Inn in my plans.  Many of my feelings about my stay are because of the way Gabby handled my inquiries! A special Thank you! to Gabby!

Greetings!  My friends and I had an awesome experience in Key West last weekend.  Our stay at your Chelsea House was enjoyed by all.  First off, the location of the Chelsea House is prime…being able to leave our vehicle and walk around the entire time was an added bonus.  Everyone in the hotel was kind and happy to accommodate our needs at any time.  I will definitely recommend your hotel to anyone interested in staying overnight in Key West and I look forward to visiting again myself.  Until next time, thank you and keep up the good work.  Cheers!

We had a nice visit and liked our room. The renovations since our last stay are really nice. The new fixtures, new furniture and new décor (nice drapes, comfy bed, mini fridge  etc.)  and new pool area are all very nice. It was great we were able to stay in the same room for our stay and got upgraded. Originally we were going to have to move rooms due to what was available. The crew were all very friendly and nice. only aspect that could be improved somewhat was the happy hour. It would have been nice to have more than one item to snack on. One night it was chips and salsa and another conch fritters. Would liked to have had some cheese and crackers or olives too. A choice of beverages might have been welcome also.  Everything else said classy place.  And what happened to the house kitty cat we saw last time? Missed that. Love that there are no loud kids in the pool, and pool is clean, and heated. Very relaxing.

Management note: Sadly, the kitty cat is no longer with us. Lady Bug was quite old and we treated her diabetes for a long time, but it eventually took its toll. We miss her too.

Hi Staff at Lighthouse Court In Key West,
We had a most enjoyable stay at your Inn and will recommend it to friends who plan to visit Key West.  We were delighted to be so centrally located and within easy walking distance of all the sights and sounds of KW.

I would like to thank your staff who were always so helpful and kind when any questions or requests were made.  You all made our stay special.

Happy New Year to you all,
Kathy and Jim Chang

Overall we really enjoyed our stay  at the Key Lime Inn. Check in was pleasant and easy, our room was clean and very quiet. We were well away from the street noise and the pool which was great. The staff were all helpful and friendly. The only downsides were a firm bed and the loudest air conditioner that I have ever tried to sleep through! The biggest plus was the location, just a few blocks from Duval and easy walking to everything.

We stayed our 1st two nights in Key West at the Cypress House Grand Conch Mansion in room 2. Could not ask for a more wonderful room in a perfect location! Walking/Biking distance to anywhere you want to go.

Checking in, Scott was simply the best. Getting our car tucked away in the parking garage and guiding us on a few things to do, and general whereabouts of what the town has to offer. So knowledgeable! The next morning, they called down and had us a bike ready to go in 15 minutes. Superb service!!

Queen bed and updated bathroom was perfect. Loved the decor and they fact that during renovations, they hung on to as much originality as possible.

We did not partake in the happy hour and snacks, but both of us enjoyed the different offerings for breakfast. Each morning, we were not disappointed, and dined by the pool.

Turn down service with new towels was a plus as well.

The 2nd two nights, we were moved down the street a house away. The location is just as great, but this house just didn’t have that ‘feel’ the Conch Mansion did. Our room 22 was a wonderful King size with mini kitchen and dinette with an updated bath as well. This house is just 4 stars for me, cause we were really excited to stay in the other house. I didn’t mention my disappointment to the staff, because we were already moved into the room. You will feel sort of displaced from the original house, having to walk for ice, drinks, or breakfast.

The staff was wonderful, and they may have been willing to keep us in the Conch Mansion if I had asked. So, I’ll take all fault to that.

When we return to Key West, we will hopefully stay with you again.  I hope we will be able to stay entirely within the Grand Conch Mansion of the Cypress House.

Thank you!
