I was pleasantly surprised by this charming property. We reserved one of the larger king rooms which was a sort of stand alone cottage with a private deck. Spotlessly clean and quiet with ample space and a nice firm mattress, the room was a haven each night of our stay. The pool was clean and secluded. The poolside breakfast was... More

We needed a place for one night to catch an early morning flight. This was the perfect fit. The price for the location is hard to beat. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. It's an easy walk to Duval St. yet in a very quite part of town. Free parking is a plus, but a car is not needed.

The Key Lime Inn is a perfectly quaint cottage nestled in beautiful Key West. The staff was right outside their door greeting us as we arrived from the airport. They gave us great hospitality and their recommendations were spot on and extremely helpful. We were two blocks away from Duval street, and from where the Inn is located you are... More

This is our 3 or 4 trip to the keys and we always try a new place. Key Lime Inn was enjoyable. We parked our car and didn't use it again till we left. We were here only for 2 days. The staff is wonderful and attentive! The kids in our party loved the place. They went lizard "hunting" and... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Key Lime Inn on two separate occasions... in one week! The first was a planned stay of two nights. We were so happy with our experience that we decided to stay here again after a brief hop down to KW from Marathon for the Hemingway Festival turned into a "we should probably... More

Location, location.... location. My husband and I stayed at this resort, and were pleasently surprised. Staff are very welcoming. We stayed in guest house #5, with a king size bed, comfy, with plenty of pillows! Very quaint, roomy enough, very clean! Pool is a few steps from each guest house. It is located close enough to Duvall Street, The Hemingway... More

We came here to celebrate my 50th and couldn't be more pleased! The room is delightful! Beautifully decorated, very clean, and the bed is comfortable! One of the nicest things happened today when we were caught in a rain storm. When we arrived back the housekeeper had taken our swimsuits off the porch and put in our room so they... More

Key lime Inn was a quiet and quaint inn. The staff were welcoming and pleasant. The room was perfect, clean and fresh. The pool was a step away. The breakfast was plentiful. Key Lime is about 3 blocks away from Duvall and 4-5 blocks from Hemingway's home. Southern most point is to the left on Duvall, a nice walk. There... More
