My wife and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn back in 1997 for our belated honeymoon. 15 years later the property has undergone a total refurbishment and is MORE Beautiful than ever. The grounds are so quaint and peaceful. The cabin we stayed in was absolutely beautiful..so clean and fresh. The pool was a delightful respite from a hot summers day. 4 days just wasn’t enough, we’ll definitely be back very soon. Key Lime Inn will always be our home away from home. Thank you for a GREAT Experience. True Key West Serenity!

Caroline’s is a GREAT Restaurant! Definitely must have the Local FRESH catch when you go. Dine under the stars and enjoy the heartbeat of Duval Street. We absolutely loved it! Want fun, fresh, and fast? You HAVE to check out Amigos in Old Town…great burritos…SUPER FRESH ingredients.

The Inn was prefect for our 39th anniversary and my wife’s first trip to Key West. It was convenient to all the things we want to do. We did not have to use our car at all, once we arrived at the Inn.

Blue Heaven had the best key lime pie by far. It was also one of the 10 best meals we have ever had.

We just happened to be in Key West during Lobster Fest. One of my favorite sea foods and I did eat my fill. We love being able to walk from vendor to vendor and see all the different offerings.

We have stayed with you two times now and have had a relaxing, no-stress stay. The room is very nice (although the hair dryer didn’t work) and the pool is lovely. Wish a greater selection of fruit could be offered at breakfast along with perhaps breakfast quiche. The coffee needs to be upgraded to a higher quality — New Mexico Pinon coffee is wonderful and would WOW your guests. Looking forward to coming back again! Thanks.

Everything from staff friendliness and helpfulness to room accommodations exceeded my expectations. It was our first trip to Key West and we hope to return and would stay at Key Lime Inn again. The atmosphere of Key Lime is perfect for the area and what I had hoped it would be. The location and available parking was also a plus.

Mangoes had great food and delightful outdoor seating. The Tin Roof was recommended by in staff and was also wonderful. We ate indoors but by a window so we could watch the sunset. Both were excellent in every way!

The tour of the Hemingway home was wonderful. The grounds were beautiful and the tour information about Hemingway and the house was very interesting. Well worth the cost of admission!

We loved your inn, staff, and location very much – also took advantage of our “happy hour” drinks at your sister hotel, the Lighthouse Court Mojito Bar – Brian was fabulous! The only thing I would change about the room would be to add some hooks in the bathroom or in the room itself for hanging towels, bathing suits, etc.

Killian’s (I think) ice cream and fudgery – fantastic!

From booking on tel with Michele, who directed the four of us to a great cottage and a room, to the housekeeping staff to the front desk staff, all were friendly, knowledgeable, competent and gave a darn about our good time. Which we did have. Rooms were clean, breakfast perfect, the pool a nice respite, parking really convenient. Bikes from A&M convenient. And when needed, the AC worked well.

Conch Republic is a fun open-air place, with good food, generous rum punch and fair prices. Schooner Wharf a classic of course.

Hemingway House visit is surprisingly interesting and well done. The Aquarium really hands-on for kids especially, the beaches were an easy bike ride away and the snorkeling even there was fun. The bars and restaurants are all welcoming, allowing drinking and cigar smoking, with live and entertaining music.
Like the tag-line says, Key West is a state of mind.

We visit Key West at least once a year this is the first time we stayed at Key Lime Inn. It won’t be the last, the service was excellent the staff wast friendly and our room was great. Waking up in the morning and walking out to a wonderful breakfast was great. Duval street was just a short walk from our room which really made walking easy.

We are already planning a vacation in Sept of this year and yes it will be at the Key Lime Inn.

We really like the pool area and spent tons of time just relaxing in the water and around the pool. The staff were great and always helped out when asked to. The hotel just did some more upgrades to the breakfast area which really made sense and looked great. We were lucky enough to have a room poolside and were a bit worried about noise but we had no issues. No kids. Yahoooo. We like kids. Just not when were in Key West. If I had to make one suggestion it would be that the hotel put a No Smoking sign on the breakfast area. I think the first 7 or 8 patio tables could be non smoking as well to be courteous to the other guests and rooms close to the pool and breakfast area.We loved our stay though.

If you like music in a great atmosphere then you need to go to Schooners Restaurant. The staff is great too. Turtle Krall has a great oyster deal all day every day for $.50 and the raw bar next door has a great happy hour 430-630. Since we were there by accident biker week we chose to pretty much avoid Duval st. other than a stroll down and back.

Took the trolly conch train. 1 1/2 hour long $30.00 it was informative. rented a cart for 2 hours. 2 Hours is definetly long enough on the small island.

The Key Lime Inn is an extremely comfortable place to stay. Well appointed with an ease unlike any hotel. Parking could be an issue but, not one that couldn’t be worked around.

The restaurants are all very good. The only one we went twice to was Duffy’s. Good prime rib.

Best activity was the trip to the Dry Tortugas. The trip is a bit long but the boat is comfortable and you get a chance to meet some interesting people. And, they fed you. You can walk around, explore, snorkel or do nothing but enjoy the island. Make sure you take the trip on a relatively calm day.

The first minute in the lobby was welcoming and gracious. Our rooms were perfect, clean, decor was right on target with the Key west feeling. Our bathroom was spacious and airy. The balcony for our room was magnificent, in the trees and the birds were very sweat. I loved the church bells. The pool area is set up with lounges and tables and chairs plenty of shade and very relaxing. I was completely satisfied with the poolside breakfast, your coffee is good too. I guess this is not brief….oopse, thank-you for a wonderful place to enjoy and I will and have recommended your place
