We stayed overnight at this hotel after having a reservation made by the welcome center outside of key west. I was excited to be staying in a B&B for the first time although the $200 price seemed a little steep. The room we had on the second floor was small, the door didn't close well and had a airspace all... More

It sounds like there was definitely a miscommunication between you and the Visitors Center which called and made the reservation. We are not a "Bed & Breakfast," but we do offer a complimentary continental breakfast daily from 8:00 - 10:00am for guests who wish to partake of it. Also, there is never a way to get a lower rate by... More

Very nice looking hotel spread across a number of properties with onsite parking, but had a more B&B feel than a hotel. Room was very nice but lacking any storage space in the bedroom (5 coat hangers on the wall) or shelving in the bathroom so we were unable to unpack anything for the three nights that we were there....

When we ordered this hotel we fell for the charm. However when we Got here we Got one of the new rooms - they were alright but not old and charming as we had hoped. The breakfast was quite boring - only bread and some oats with a little fruit. It was rather boring. One Day I had a muffin... More

Down here in the beautiful Florida Keys, those of us who live here quickly learn that we can't leave any kind of sweet food sitting around uncovered because somehow those pesky little ants will find it, whether it's in our homes, in your hotel room, at the beach, or anywhere really. I'm sorry about your muffin. The houses that comprise... More

Staff accommodated my daughter and I for a one night stay. Had reservations for the next 3 nights at the Key Lime. Room was small, but exquisite. Very clean. Pool and gardens beautiful! Nice breakfast. Would definitely return.

We stayed at the Chelsea House this past week. It was a nice place. The room was small and clean. we had everything we needed. There was a small mini fridge, flat screen and a very comfy bed. Our room was attached to a wrap around balcony. We sat on the rocking chairs on the balcony and enjoyed watching the... More

First, the best thing by far about this Hotel was the front desk customer service. I believe Lyenny was her name, she was exceptional at what she did and should probably be working at a 5 Star hotel. If you happen to deal with her she will spare no expense at making you feel welcomed. She will show you your... More

We are so glad you loved our wonderful Lyenna as much as we do! She is truly a gem. Whilst the guestrooms are all air conditioned, due to the layout of the buildings/rooms/connecting corridors and the French Doors that stay open throughout the day leading to the pool, the hallways do get fairly warm sometimes in the hottest months of...

Very happy with our stay. My husband and I have visited 2 other key lime inn hotels and so far very happy with all 3 hotels. Staff at the 3 hotels are very nice and helpful. I will recommend the key lime hotels. Very nice and clean/ quiet.

We stayed in one of the king suites and enjoyed having the full fridge and sink even though we didn't use the stove at all; however, we did use the microwave--nice to have those kinds of amenities. Coffee maker in room, too--and a few dishes and utensils which came in handy for those leftovers. Having a real sofa was important... More

Loved it! Our family of 4 had a blast here! We spent 3 nights here and had no problems. Breakfast was great and the location was close enough for us to walk to Duval Street. Parking is free and housekeeping was wonderful. Our room was comfortable and accommodated our family of 4 just fine. The only suggestion I have is... More

We were nervous after reading the reviews as our trip neared. When we booked, the B&B wasn't this low on TA, but a week out, I checked again. My husband, myself and 3 other couples stayed Sunday, June 29 - July 1st (staggering check out dates). We were in rooms 1, 5, 17 and 18. We found the grounds to... More
