We had requested a second floor room, and this was given to us. It was in the larger building on the property and had a small balcony. The decor was nice, and the facilities were good. Our only issue was a persistent damp smell, and the lack of ventilation in the bathroom. Otherwise the stay was great. The location is... More

The Key Lime Inn cottages were just right for my mom & me at a time when she was having difficulty with steps. The cottage was clean, quiet & private, although I would have hoped for two chairs and a bit more space for a superior queen room. (The Deluxe rooms were much larger with small sofa & chair). The...

When travelling with someone elderly or with mobility issues, it's always advisable to speak with the hotel in advance to let them know about your needs. Not all of the rooms at the Key Lime Inn are designed or situated with movement impaired guests in mind, but we do have two wonderful Deluxe King Rooms that meet ADA standards with... More

Stayed for a few nights, and we enjoyed it very much. Great location, central to many parts of town. Nice room, very comfortable bed. (King) clean and quiet. I didn't turn my nose up @ the breakfast. No, it wasn't a "full" breakfast, but it was fresh, and obviously locally sourced. (nothing in cellophane) My only complaint is the toaster... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Key Lime Inn property. The balcony on the second floor room accommodated my husband's desire to smoke. We did have to park on the adjoining lot, but were able to move close later. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. It was a short walk to Duvall St. , and a quick... More

Just got home from 5 days at Key Lime Inn. We stayed in a superior queen room so we had a small refrigerator. Our room was great - with a nice size bathroom. We loved the rustic feel of the Inn and the small cottages scattered around the property. The staff - from the front desk to maintenance - were... More

This was just perfect! The staff was exceptional. Check in was quick and easy. The rooms were spotless. Breakfast by the pool was very good. Location was centrally located. I would recommend this property very highly. Would definitely stay at Key Lime Inn again.

The Key Lime Inn was one of the most gorgeous little spots I’ve ever stayed in to date. From the friendly staff that met us on arrival; to the cutest little private hut we were allocated and had the pleasure of staying in. Everything was spotless, the interior décor in the rooms were so pleasant my partner and I are... More

After having a little difficulty finding a B&B in Key West that would allow my 4 year old son, I finally found the Key Lime Inn and it was perfect! The trip was a short 48 hr birthday getaway however my son and I enjoyed every minute of it. Check in was quick, very welcoming and friendly, the receptionist was... More

We stayed here for a couple days in January 2015. The location is A+! We loved the fact that we were within walking distance of everything with FREE off street parking. The grounds were well-maintained. The pool was a nice area to relax. The room was clean, but there were a few minor details that could have made the room... More

The website and photos are very misleading. We have stayed at the southernmost hotel, a private B&B and now the Key Lime Inn in Key West. This is the most expensive and least desirable place. The grounds are attractive but the rooms are small, outdated and worn.

Hi Toni, I would welcome your e-mail to msimmons@hkwi.net to discuss your review. I'm not sure if you were looking at a different website and then booked the Key Lime Inn afterwards? The pictures on our website are up-to-date and accurately depict this Historic Key West Inn, so it would be helpful to know which website is misleading. This time... More
