The Key Lime Inn was fantastic. The staff were courteous and helpful, and the grounds are cozy and relaxing with hammocks, swings, and a cozy private porch out back. Complimentary poolside breakfast didn’t hurt either! The rooms, while smaller than you may be used to in hotels, were immaculate, with plenty of hot water, quiet at night (I stayed with a fitful sleeper and she slept soundly) and are frankly perfect for a stay in Key West–a place where you better hope you are out and about instead of holed up in your room!
Now, it rained during our visit, and that might have spelled disaster, but because the Key Lime Inn is so close to Duval St. and the popular heart of Key West, we were able to get everywhere we wanted, and without getting drenched or driving anywhere: we toured Hemingway House, stood at the Southermost point, and had the best meals at places like La Creperie, Seven Fish, and El Meson de Pepe. We went shopping and sight-seeing near Mallory Square and were able to easily stop in to the hotel to recharge or change or drop off bags.
Not having to drive to Duval meant we could cut loose and enjoy ourselves (as you should on a vacation) at the local bars. For the adventurous types, the drag show at Aqua is amazing (make reservations). Check out Sloppy Joes for some cool Key West History. Who can forget dessert at Better Than Sex? Truly decadent. All within walking distance.
To top it all off, the staff allowed us to keep our rental in the lot until our checkout at 2pm, even though we had officially checked out earlier. What a relief! And that checkout time is perfect for those who may want to sleep in after a night on the town or snuggle just a little longer.
Thanks, Key Lime Inn! See you soon!
