“Nice stay”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Went down to Key West for 3 nights and was looking for somewhere to stay that wouldn't break the bank. We picked the Key Lime Inn based on the the price and reviews posted. We found it to be very nice. It is not like a stardard hotel/motel.It has character, feeling like a tropical oasis as you enter the grounds. We stayed in a stardard room,which was very small but clean and suited our needs as we really didn't spend to much time there.The pool was nice and there were chairs, swings and hammocks about the property for relaxing. The free breakfast was basic but fine and enough to get you going.The staff was freindly and our room was ready when we got there,hours before check in time.It never felt crowed here and was quiet at night. It is 2 blocks from Duval on the quiet side.It was a about a 10 min. walk to South Beach and about a 15 - 20 walk to to the busy end near Sloppy Joes, There are 2 scooter/bike rental places right near the Inn if you prefer not to walk.I would stay here again if we come back to Key West.

Excellent location for all Key West activities drinking,eating and partying
Stayed with family and friends in early May and loved it. Booked one of the cottages across the car park which was ideal for us. We could use pool but were not on top of it!!
Breakfast was average but did not need more (typical American continental)
Receptionist Michelle Thomas was very helpful and friendly which is one of the main attributes of a good hotel/inn and she had the same surname as me.
I booked online on the strength of the name!!!!and did not regret it

We always stay at the Key Lime Inn when we're in Key West. The rooms are clean and inviting and the staff is always helpful. We will continue to use this Inn as a base when we visit. It's location is perfect for seeing all the sites and returning to peace and quiet!

Room Tip: We always try to stay in one of the rooms around the pool. We usually travel with friends and we can...

My boyfriend and I went to Key West last weekend with a group of couples. We stayed at the Key Lime Inn from Saturday to Monday, from the moment we arrived and checked in everyone was very nice. We were able to check in 2 hour early which was nice. Our room was small, but big enough for the two of us. We went into the pool as soon as we arrived and it was perfect. This hotel is great because of the location, parking on the premises, nice breakfast from 8 to 10 am (coffee, OJ, muffins, yogurts, croissant and bagels). The only issue that some may find is that the standard room with queen bed is small, but for us two it was perfect. Oh and I forgot to mention that the restaurant "Better Than Sex" is two blocks away, you must check out!

Room Tip: If you are a couple 2 people the standard room with queen bed is perfect. We had room 33 which is ac...

You couldn't ask for a better location in Key West. The Key Lime Inn is an easy walk to all the hot spots... but just far enough from the noise to allow for peaceful nights. We found the staff unfailingly polite and helpful. The grounds are shady, informal and well kept. They offer a simple complimentary breakfast - mostly juice, breads, yogurt and fruit. Parking is free - a real plus in cramped Key West.

Our room - a "King Deluxe" - was decorated simply, but more than spacious enough. The private patio turned out to be a roughly 8' x 8' fenced-in square behind our room, with an outdoor table and two chairs. On cool nights, it would have come in handy. The in-room fridge was a nice extra.

My only real complaint - and it didn't bother my wife - was a distinct musty odor, especially in the bathroom. Several days of brutal humidity might help explain the problem. Otherwise, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: If you value privacy, ask for a room away from the pool.

We chose the Key Lime Inn due to the free parking and it's central location. Everything is walkable from the Key Lime and so central that next time we won't bother with a car. We will be bicycling like the locals! We stayed for five nights and were impressed with the friendly, helpful staff from the moment we checked in. They couldn't have been more accommodating, with tips on restaurants, locals spas, and places to visit. Nothing was too much trouble and Micheall in particular went above and beyond on every occasion. The hotel itself is quiet, with a nice laid back feel. The rooms are very clean and quickly made up every day. The grounds are lovely, the pool is small but clean and the buffet breakfast was adequate with croissants, bagels, muffins, toast, cereal, yoghurts and fruit. We would stay at the Key Lime again, without hesitation. Compared to other hotels on Key West the room rate at the Key Lime are quite reasonable. Thank you everyone for making our stay so enjoyable!

We chose the Key Lime due to its location and free parking and where very pleased with these aspects of our stay, that said at $235 per night it is very expensive for what it is, a very old but (authentic) poorly decorated and maintained group of buildings ranging from cabins to veranda style rooms.
The hotel is in a very peaceful setting and only ten minutes walk fro all the action.
The room was lovely with the biggest and highest bed we have ever slept in, but the room was not very practical it needs some modern fixings as it had only one mirror, very limited lighting (in fact it was dark) and electric wall sockets that where so loose that plugs fell out, it also had a nice private balcony overlooking well maintained grounds (don't lean against the balcony rails as they look as though they might collapse at any minute)!
There is a small pool around which is served a very light buffet breakfast with limited seating, the hotel has a nice ambience and staff are very pleasant.
Overall a pleasant two night stay in a location which we have no plans to return to - sorry Key West not what we expected!
