“Home away from Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The Key Lime Inn is a welcoming and comfortable place. The room was pleasant and pretty. The bed was a little hard and the room did not have wireless access. Those were the only drawbacks. The location was central and you could walk anywhere on Duvall street.

Hi Cindy,

We're so glad you liked your "home away from home" at the Key Lime Inn as much as we liked having you here as our guests. You'll be happy to know that we have technicians working with us right now who assure us that by the end of next week, the free WiFi should be available in all of our rooms and public spaces without any blackout spots. We're so excited! I hope you will come and see us again next time you head down to the Keys.

This is one of those places you might drive past, but it was a great place to stay. A friend had stayed here the year before and suggested we give it a try. They allowed us to park our motorcycles next to our doors and even provided boards for the jiffy stands. Room were clean and the bed comfortable. Staff was very friendly and the pool warm and clean. Breakfast was good and served outside next to the pool. Coffee was always available in the office. It is about two blocks from a grocery store and an easy walk down town. Will go back!

Right in the heart of town. Sweet little place. Lovely staff. It just feels like vacation. Nice pool.

We would have preferred to come in winter and expected Key West to be unbearably hot. It was, in fact, no hotter than home (DC) and home is not KEY WEST!

Check in process was a breeze. Plus the reception area was very welcoming. We drove from north carolina and it was refreshing to be greeted and taken care! They had water with orange and lemon slices which was yummy after a long drive! We stayed in room 1 a stand alone room with its own patio and privacy! It was slighty noisy by the road but that wasn't nearly annoying as the chruch bells going off like an alarm clock! The shower water was always pretty cool and never got hot. Maintenance was going to look into it. Those were the only negatives and those are small. This place is so close to everything so walk! Customer service is outstanding. When we came back from a long day of snorkeling there wasn't a parking spot so we went to the reception to find out where to go. The best customer service person I ever met saw a parking space across the street and stood in it so we could park. She just did that to help out! Im telling you this was our third time in the keys and we will not stay anywhere else but here next time we come! Thank you Key Lime Inn you rock!

We stayed (unfortunately) only for the one night we were staying in key west. Key lime is a really pretty set of buildings. At check in we were early but still allowed to go to our room which we appreciated after a long drive. Claudine was extremely friendly and upon knowing it was our wedding anniversary she left us little congratulations noted in our room!!! Nice touch. We had a king room which was lovely and cool, extremely comfortable bed, nice little patio area. We had a dip in the pool which was also lovely. I would absolutely stay here again - hopefully next time for longer!!

I was there nine years ago and loved it. When Jim and I planned a trip to Key West I suggested Key Lime Inn. There is a house and cottages. We had a deluxe cottage with patio two chairs and table. The staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Loved having breakfast on the patio adjoining the pool and then going for a refreshing swim. It is two blocks away from Duval. We are looking forward to a return visit to Key West and Key Lime Inn.

Recently stayed 2 nights at this property. Lovely reception area and very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Our room was in the house and was beautifully decorated and had its own patio area with 2 chairs and a little table. The pool is lovely and perfect for an afternoon swim, however it was too warm - it really doesn't need heating when the air temperature is in the 90's! Very nice breakfast. Parking is available, but if you get a space don't move your car again or you'll never park. Inn is perfectly situated for everything in Key West. Would definitely recommend to my friends.

Room Tip: The rooms in the house are away for the pool area so may be quieter.
