Where to begin…

This year, my boyfriend and I took our first vacation alone together. We had been planning for months and were very excited. We arrived to the Key Lime Inn where we were greeted by very friendly front desk staff on a Monday afternoon. We spent the rest of the day shopping and had a wonderful dinner at the Conch Republic Seafood Company.

The next morning, while getting ready for the day, my boyfriend had a seizure. He has never had a seizure before I was terrified. I called 911 who immediately came to retrieve him. While still in shock and trying to figure out where the hospital was even located, I received a call from the front desk. The woman was extremely sweet. She informed me that she had gotten me a cab and it was waiting outside. I was more than grateful.

We got back from the ER late that afternoon. I will admit I was slightly freaked out even being in the same room where his seizure happened. When we returned, the amount of care and concern from the hotel staff was more than I could have ever imagined. Everyone was so wonderful. Anytime they saw us for the next two days they went out of their way to ask us how were doing and see how my boyfriend was feeling. They even gave me some fruit the day we got back as my boyfriend hadn’t eaten.

One staff member my boyfriend and I will never forget was Clement. He went out of his way numerous times just to say hello and make sure we were doing okay. He really made us feel welcome. Check out was also great, the women at the front desk were sweet and even wrote my boyfriend a postcard.

After everything that happened, my boyfriend and I felt like we would never want to go Key West or the Key Lime Inn again in order to forget the memory of his seizure, but after the AMAZING service and genuine care and concern we received from the employees we would be crazy not to.

Thank you Key Lime Inn. You made a very scary experience for my boyfriend and I a little more comfortable. You made us feel like appreciated guests. It is scary to be away from other family and friends when incidents like this occur but the Key Lime Inn staff treated us with the same kindness and care that family would.

We spent three nights in April at the Merlin Guesthouse and found it to be clean and well maintained. We stayed in Room 16 which is an upstair king suite. The room was larger than we expected and had a large sitting area with a sectional sofa and 42″ flatscreen tv.  It also had a private deck and was in a quiet location.

The inn is near the activity on Duvall Street but far enough away to avoid the noise.  It is within walking distance of all the attractions on Key West. The management and staff was friendly and helpful.  We would definitely stay there again.

This hotel has a great location just two blocks from Duval, friendly and helpful reception staff, lovely pool in lush setting, and is quiet despite being so close to the action in Key West.  I stayed with my mother and sister for Mother’s Day in a room with two queen beds on the first floor.  The Inn is charming – additions have been made to the original houses that comprise the Chelsea, but they have been done tastefully. The room and bath were spacious and well-equipped – towels were provided for pool use.  The breakfast was continental and plentiful with fresh croissants made locally.  Onsite parking is a real plus.  Would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Key Lime Inn, what a wonderful tropical paradise: friendly staff, great breakfast, clean  spacious rooms and grounds including free parking. Love that everyone has their own outdoor patio area. Two blocks from Duval Street, restaurants and shopping . We will recommend it to all our friends and family.  The next time we are in Key West, this will be the only place we stay.

Our first stay at Key West.   The room was small, but very clean and just enough space for us.  The staff were gracious and helpful in finding where to find transportation,  good places to eat, and also where to visit.   We highly recommend and will again visit Merlin Guesthouse.

I was very happy with my room. It had a lovely, subtle theme and was impeccably clean. I stayed in room #1. We had a porch front and the other guests were polite. The employees were funny and nice. The only thing that was a let down was the breakfast buffet. There was no protein besides hard boiled eggs. There was an abundance of biscuits, bagels, muffins, and bananas. I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before and was told the best part was the morning after. I was unfortunately disappointed in that respect. Otherwise, I really enjoyed my stay.

Exactly what we needed for a short stay! Privacy and closeness to the vicinities we want to go. Will definitely recommend to friends!

Although I was doing business during my stay, I couldn’t help but enjoy the friendly (and funny) staff each day.  From breakfast time through the cocktail hour and even when I needed technical help with WiFi late one evening, I found myself thoroughly enjoying my “workload” while staying at the Cypress House!  This was not my first visit and I hope to have many more!
