My husband and I spent three nights at Chelsea House.  The location was ideal, within easy walking distance of all the attractions. Parking was ample, but uncovered. The front office staff was very helpful and professional.  The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. There was no closet, but hangars and hooks were provided for tops and dresses. The pool and gardens were beautiful.  The housekeeping staff did an excellent job.  This is an historic inn, so be prepared to climb and descend narrow stairs.  These weren’t a problem, unless you have limited mobility and a second floor room. Breakfast was the low point.  It was served by the pool and seating was limited, especially if there was rain. The coffee was excellent, but there should have been more selections for breakfast items.  All the cereals offered were heavily sweetened, and there was a limited choice of fresh fruit. Fresh locally made pastries were good. Our two favorite restaurants, both located on Duval Street were La Trattoria and Antonia’s.  We would recommend the hotel for anyone visiting Key West.

Helpful and friendly staff.  Very clean.  Surprisingly quite since it is located in Old Town, so close to the hustle and bustle of Key West. We left another resort in the upper Keys because we were very disappointed with the place.  We decided to “wing it” and found the Key Lime Inn.  It was just what we needed.  Clean and close to Duval Street.  It even cost less than the other resort we left!  Highly recommended.  We will return!

The Key Lime Inn was wonderful.  We got there and were upgraded to a superior room.  It was clean, well appointed, and right off the pool and breakfast area.  Check-in was a breeze and because of the location we were able to leave our car in the parking lot, free of charge of course.  The staff was polite and answered every question we had.  I would definitely book at the Key Lime in the future and recommend it to others.  It just so happens a friend of mine is going to stay there for his honeymoon.  I got back and he told me that he and his wife are staying at the Key Lime so I told him how nice it is.  They are from Huntsville Alabama and will love both the Inn and Key West.

I was a first time visitor to the Albury Court as well as Key West. I had always heard Key West was a one-of-a-kind place so I had large expectations to meet. Well let’s just say that I cannot wait to return! Besides the excitement of Duval Street, the amazing scenery, and the lovely people, my Key West trip was also special because of my experience at the Albany Court. I used to work for a hotel as  a Supervisor so I am very observant when I call, check in and stay the night. Let me tell you from the phone call I made to the day I checked out, everything was awesome. I called on a Monday while visiting Ft. Myers and spoke to a wonderful person (I really apologize, I forgot their name). They answered questions regarding all of my concerns such as how close of a walk Duval Street was, what the rooms were like, and popular area attractions. I had originally made my reservation to arrive Wednesday but I got unexpectedly sick that morning and figured I couldn’t reschedule. Well I was wrong! They let me make my reservation for another day and accommodated all of my needs. This is top notch customer service. I really appreciated that.

Sunday, I left Ft. Myers bright and early and drove to Key West. A little tired once we arrived, we hoped we could check in although it was only 1 PM. I parked on the street and headed on in to check in. Wow the lobby was so quaint, updated, nice and cold!, and the refreshments were much needed. The super friendly woman (again I forget her name) welcomed us and was super helpful. She let us check in and told us where to park. We arrived at the room and were pleasantly surprised! It was gorgeous. It had a very clean, modern, yet Old Key West feel. We loved the ceiling fans – huge plus. The bedroom had two queen beds, a large bathroom area, and a cute little kitchen area. It accommodated four people easily. I also loved the beds and bathroom products- the Rusk lotion was great! After checking in, we walked to Duval which was only about four blocks away in the walk was just so beautiful seeing all the Key West homes along the way. I loved the location of this Inn, very quiet yet close to the action. The next morning we headed over to breakfast and let me tell you this might have been the best breakfast at a hotel I’ve ever had. Not to mention that it was free, it was fresh! I loved the bagels, croissants, fruit, cereal, coffee! Everything was super fresh and awesome! I told all of my friends and family to give this place a try for the breakfast. The courtyard where breakfast was set up was very nice. I loved the pool in the waterfall, it was very relaxing.

I hope to visit the Albury Court again someday and next time I’m visiting Florida I will definitely have to make a trip back. It definitely did not make me want to come all the way back to Massachusetts that’s for sure! I just want to say thank you for such a great trip and I will remember it forever.

Hi,

My husband an I stayed at the Chelsea House 6/3-6/7 2014. absolutely wonderful, clean room, the continental breakfast was perfect for a quick “something’ before heading off to whatever we had planned. We live in port charlotte, fl. an we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, we have been to key west several times, and just stayed in regular motel/hotels.

I searched & searched for the perfect place, I wanted to see and stay in a historic inn, he left all the planning to me! We stayed in the “royal room” unbelievable- so pretty made me never want, to leave the staff so friendly, the pool was perfect, i love old historical buildings an found out we were actually sleeping in the old dining room, so looking forward to coming back again.

I will never search on the internet again. I have your card in my file an tossed all the others, walking distance was perfect- I wanted a place to park our car for fear of having to drive, we only drove to the a&b lobster house and eat it raw bar.  We cant wait to come back !  I have told everyone i know about  the historic key west inns but when we come back again room # 19 is all ours! Thank you again for making my 25th anniversary one that we will never forget.

Sincerely,

The Sniffen’s, tom an donna

Matt and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Merlin Guesthouse.  The atmosphere is friendly and charming.  The room was comfortable and clean, and the housekeeping staff eager to help.  Linda and Lee in the office went out of their way to help us get settled and to answer our questions.  Check in and check out were easy, especially since my debit card processing was held up.  We enjoyed lunch across the street at Deuce’s Off the Hook, dinners at Blue Heaven, Mangoes, and Kelly’s Caribbean Grill.  We will definitely be back!

The Key Lime Inn is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast by the pool. The room was comfortable, spacious, and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a quick walk to Duval and major attractions. We can’t wait to stay again!

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at The Key Lime Inn in the heart of Old Town Key West.  The Key Lime Inn is located just a few blocks from the action and entertainment of Duval Street. We left our car parked at the Inn and walked everywhere we went.  We were greeted at check in by the friendly staff.  Joanne checked us in and was helpful with suggestions and directions for restaurants.  Our  room was a standard queen and exceeded my expectations as far as space and comfort.  The bed was very comfortable with soft linens, the bath towels were big and fluffy and the toiletries were an especially nice quality.  Large towels for the pool were also provided. The pool was large, very clean and inviting.  The surrounding grounds were well groomed, shaded by large trees and foliage and provided a quiet, restful haven.  The continental breakfast was served on the pool deck each morning with patio tables for seating, shaded by umbrellas. The breakfast breads and pastries came fresh from local bakeries. There were fresh fruits, yogurt, cereal, hard cooked eggs, milk, orange juice and coffee with all of the required condiments for an excellent breakfast for visitors on the go.  Nelie, the hostess at breakfast, was smiling and welcoming each morning providing assistance and clearing tables. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay during our visit! I would highly recommend The Key Lime Inn without hesitation and I would stay there again. Thank you for making our stay an enjoyable respite.
