My husband and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn July 24-30 while we were on our honeymoon. We stayed in a Deluxe Cottage. The property was clean and well-maintained. We did see some damp wood around the porch on our cottage, but that should not come as a surprise in southern Florida. I am sure this is an on-going battle in every property in this part of the U.S. We did not see or smell any signs of mold or dampness inside the room.
This is a quieter part of Key West, with a Catholic Church right across the street. This felt like a very safe location, and we felt 100% safe walking to and from the hotel at night. We only had a car for one night, and we parked on the street near the church without any problems (the lot was full). The location was great- far enough from Duval Street to be a little further from the rowdy bar scene, but close enough (2 blocks) for an easy walk.
My husband and I usually decline housekeeping services when we travel, mostly because we don’t feel the need for fresh linens every single day and we usually tidy up wherever we are out of habit anyway. Housekeeping left us a big bag of fresh towels and extra toiletries just outside our door every day of our stay when we had the “privacy please,” sign on our doorknob. There was a larger trash bin nearby the cottage where we could dispose of full bags of trash. Our trash can had a whole roll of trash bags in it, which was great for changing the trash ourselves as needed. These are small details, but they are details we have not seen in many other hotels.
The AC in our room was great; the week we stayed in Key West, there was no breeze inland, and Key West apparently hit record highs. Every time we walked into that room, we couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief!
Our only real complaint was the temperature of the pool. The pool was so warm it almost felt like a hot tub. Certainly, not very refreshing when the water is nearly the same temperature as the air!By: Jessica Schneider August 6, 2014
