An adorable old-fashioned complex that's just what you need for a fuss-free, affordable stay, the Key Lime lets you choose your own style. You can stay in one of the rooms gathered around the modest swimming pool for a classic motel-style stay or you can pick a self-contained cottage arranged around the acre of well-maintained grounds. In the back of the property, its original estate home, 1854's Robert Maloney House, is where you'll find hotel-style bedrooms away from the admittedly mellow social scene by the pool. Although it's right off Truman Avenue, the grounds are green and the energy isn't impersonal or frenzied—you're far enough from Duval Street (about a 5-minute walk) to find peace, but near enough to find food and drink without struggling with a car. Most of the rooms have either a queen or king bed and are done up in a pleasing but not overly plush Florida style—gentle pastels and Bahama-style shutters to shut out the heat. It's relaxing but not super high-end—the staff is cheerful and it cares, but it also steps back and lets you do your own thing—making it a good choice if the last thing you want is to be caught up in the city's heavy-handed overpriced luxury hotel scene.
