Excellent hotel, clean friendly staff. 3 blocks from Duval, highly recommend. Good price. Nice staff and good breakfast provided. This hotel is near everything, safe place. Parking is provided and rental place for scooter is two blocks away.

A group of 6 of us stayed here in 3 different rooms and we all had a good experience. The staff is very friendly. It is an historic property that feels updated and fresh. The pool was wonderful both day and night. The walk to Duval is a little far, the walk to Mallory Square is really far, but still walkable. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others.

This was our first trip to Key West, and we were glad to have found the Key Lime Inn. The location is great - just a short walk from Duval St, but far enough away to be quiet at night. We easily parked our car in thier lot on Friday afternoon of the holiday weekend and never moved it until we went home on Sunday. My wife and I are in our mid 30's and in good shape - everything can be walked to from here very easily.

Good things about the Inn - Very Clean, Great Location, Plenty of Parking (Critical in Key West), Comfortable Bed, Reasonable Price for Key West, Awesome Room (Room 12 on second floor) with Great Balcony.

Bad things about the Inn - The AC in our room was very loud - woke me up multiple times during the night when it turned on, The included "breakfast" is more like a bagel and coffee.

Room Tip: We would recommend room #12 on the second floor. Coffee in the morning on the balcony was great!

Just loved this place!
Location - easy to get to on Truman Avenue, no problem parking our car on arrival and did not move it for 5 days as the whole of Key West was walkable from here. Loads of restaurants to choose from and a CVS right across the road for supplies.
The Inn consists of the main reception building, Maloney House and several cottages spread over a lovely site with bark pathways, a hammock, swing and choice of seating areas. It is magical when lit up by night.
We had hoped for a cottage rather than a room and booked a deluxe room as other trip advisors suggested best chance of getting a cottage. We actually had room 11 in the back of the Maloney House. Room was large, spacious and well-equipped with a huge king size bed but the balcony was long and narrow and looked out onto the tin roof of cottages below. Staff advised us to book directly with hotel to maximise chance of a cottage.
Pool area quite small but perfectly suited for an evening dip after a day sight-seeing around Key West and always beautifully warm. The great thing is that there is no bar or restaurant on site so you can take your own food/drinks to the pool day or night.
Breakfast on the deck by the pool was more than adequate - who wants cooked breakfast in the tropics anyway? Good choice of breads, muffins, cereal, fruit etc. and self-service so could eat as much as desired.
Staff very helpful at all times and the only thing that could have been better was if we had a cottage! Would stay here again no problem.

Room Tip: The standard cottages are quite small and do not have fridge/coffee maker. The deluxe cottages are g...

We live in Islamorada and came to Key West to participate in the Swim Around Key West annual event. Our friend, Lighthouse Larry and the Fighting Manatees swim club, based in Islamorada, are promoting the first annual Swim to Alligator Lighthouse this September, in an effort to save the Florida Keys lighthouses. My husband and I were fortunate enough to find a room at Key Lime Inn on Truman Ave ( located within walking distance of most of Key West's fun spots). We were delighted that the website's photos were accurate. The structures are gorgeous old Key West, the grounds lush and immaculate and the staff welcoming, informative and courteous . Special accolades to Alexander ( the great) who went beyond the call of duty and parallel parked my husband's truck for me when he wasn't there. Also, thanks to Micheall, supervisor, who trained Alexander in the previous two weeks. The rooms are clean, the pool attractive, brunch yummy and staff lovely. We can't wait to go back!!!!!!!

We stayed two nights at this hotel. We chose it for its value, free breakfast, and free parking. We stayed in Room 24. The bathroom was decent-sized and it had a small patio with chairs in the back surrounded by a privacy fence. I didn't hear a peep from the other neighbors at night except for slamming doors occasionally. I was impressed with the look of the place and I liked how our room was set back from the street. The continental breakfast by the pool was filling. The only thing I did not like was a strong chlorine smell that stayed in the room the entire time we were there. I thought it was the AC working, and my boyfriend thought it was mold. We didn't figure out what it was. Other than that, I enjoyed staying here and I would stay here again. The front desk staff was very friendly.

We have stayed at the Key Lime Inn on 3 different trips too Key West and will stay again!! The location is great, walking distance to Duvall Street but quiet and very pretty. The pool setting is awesome and the breakfast is great!
