“A serenity bubble just a short walk from the insanity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

My fiance and I stayed a the Inn for Christmas and enjoyed it immensely. A fantastic location just a short walk from Duffy's and a couple of blocks from Duval Street. The Inn has a very helpful and friendly staff and accommodations. Our room (#13) was half of a cabin and featured wood floors, tile by the sink and bathroom, and had a small refrigerator. The bed was perfectly comfy (maybe 3.5 or 4 out of 5). Oddly, there was no microwave, but there was a Keurig with a few K-cups provided. A nice touch. The area next to our cabin had a hammock and Adirondack chairs, which we made sure to use appropriately for napping.

We were worried when we pulled in on our motorcycles and saw the gravel parking lot, but the staff was very resourceful and let us park by our cabin and provided pre-cut wood blocks to use as kickstand pucks. Good thinking ahead, and they had obviously thought through this before.

Most of the staff was quite conversational and would chat with you beyond just a "hello" if you were not in a hurry. The entire place seemed very serene and unhurried. Precisely what we were looking for.

Room Tip: Rooms with lower numbers (below about 15) are in smaller cabins. The higher numbers are generally in...

My wife and I spent two nights at the Key Lime Inn a few days before Christmas. We had requested an early check in after coming in on an overnight flight, and arrived to find our room was ready and staff upgraded us to a larger room. The sectional couch was very comfortable and coffee in the room was good quality. We loved the location - three blocks from Duvall St - everything was an easy walk, but quiet and serene when we returned to our room. The pool was a nice amenity, even if a bit chilly in the shade. Breakfast was adequate - more European than American - but yogurt and hard boiled eggs provided a good start to the day. The front desk staff were extremely welcoming and readily provided directions and discounts to nearby attractions. The bathroom is ready for a renovation (even a fresh coat of paint would help), but was clean and comfortable. We would happily return to the Key Lime Inn.

Just got back from Key West. Stayed at Key lime Inn on Truman st. Great location,close to Duval St but far away enough, to be quiet. The pool is very nice. My only recommendation, is they should have a hot tub next to the pool. They have the room for this. My wife is always cold, so she found the pool not warm enough. Wanted a hot tub. The pool was heated to at least 75, I would say and was okay for myself and daughter. But some people like it hot.. A hot tub would complete this place. Free paking was nice.

My husband and I absolutely loved the Key Lime Inn. The location was amazing... we were able to bike or walk anywhere we wanted to go. We felt like we were in an area that was a little bit off the beaten path but still in the midst of it all at the same time. We found the atmosphere to be so peaceful, quaint, and charming. We were treated extremely well by the entire staff!! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Key West!!

My husband and I stayed at the Key Lime Inn for 3 nights last week. We liked it's location which made almost all of Key West walkable- beach, Duval Street, Mallory Square. The rooms are spread out through several small buildings. We did think it was going to be one large historic inn which wasn't the case but there is no problem with what was provided. The rooms are spacious and with many options such as separate bungalows or larger buildings. It seems to be an ample complex. As we prefer quiet, we were located on the 2nd floor of (I believe) Malcolm which was just fine. It was quiet and clean.
The Inn has a nice little pool that was also clean, quiet and served us well when we wanted to sit outside for a while in the afternoon between touring.
Breakfast is served by the pool. It is continental style and adequate. We do wish it had healthier fare and more local fruit (apples in the Keys don't seem right.) We also had to get used to people smoking outside and had to move to an end of the pool where there was none.
The staff was very professional and helpful. I had a little incident in which I was apparently bitten by something while snorkeling and had an allergic reaction several hours afterwards. I woke up in the morning to a face that looked like a pufferfish and thought it best to see a doctor (caffeine and Benadryl did not work.) I phoned the front desk and they called a local doctor for me. They orchestrated the connection in a really professional and immediate way. I was grateful for their help and that in fact they had such an important resource already established. The doctor does make calls to the hotel. All went well ( and I can laugh about the puffy face now.)
We would recommend the Inn to others.

Stayed for three days and had a great time. Very friendly staff (especially Michelle and Scott) who were there when we checked in. Gave great recommendations for places to est and then made a reservation for us. The inn is very close to all the action, but very laid back and quiet. Will go back again!

I chose one of the larger rooms based on TripAdvisor reviews and was very happy with that; the rooms were a great deal larger and the high ceiling was nice. It also seemed like the more expensive rooms were better kept. The decor were really pretty; simplistic and quiet. Like every other place we stayed in Florida the bathroom had a faint smell to it, but I guess that's just a fact of life in a tropical climate. I spent two ice cold showers before I could figure out the shower; the handle does not only control the water pressure but also the heat; pull the handle all the way and wait for the water until it gets hot; then pull it back until you reach the desired temperature.

The pool was lovely, the breakfast was very simplistic but reasonable; it was served poolside. There is on-side parking. I think we payed something like $200 a night and found it to be good value for money.

Room Tip: Chose one of the larger rooms! (The cost a little extra but it is worth it.)
