Where to begin? Let me just say that I have NEVER posted anything in my life, but this experience was so AWFUL, I had to write something. Let's start at the source.
The owner is constantly drunk and when he isn't drunk he is apologizing for his ludicrous behavior from previous encounters.(now the name "Bottle Inn" makes more sense) I have never seen, nor heard anything like this in my 28 years. This drunkard had to apologize to me personally, and my friends several times. But this is only the tip of the ice burg. This guy has no class, self respect or manners. I am still shocked to see all these positive reviews after having such miserable experience. The fact that this establishment is still open is astonishing to me. Several times his aid had to come trailing after him and apologize for his distasteful remarks.
The bed was actually comfortable, however when you book a room that is a King and get a queen you tend to be upset, but that is not why we are here.
If you like stained comforters that seem like they weren't washed since the 1990's, then you should stay here.
If you like using the same towel for 4 days b/c there is no service or towel exchange, you should stay here.
The shower (which was 2ftx3ft) has a nice feature that make you feel like you are in prison. Not only is the shower grimy (I had to wear sandals in the shower as I was nervous to get some foot fungus) but you also get to choose your shower temperature. The options are COLD or ICE COLD.
The only positive her is that they had plumbing and running water.
If you like not eating breakfast at a BnB then this is your place.
The "spread" consisted of mangled fruit. 3 stale bagels and 4 pasties. I'm not a math genius, but my party alone would have easily finished all that in a matter of minutes. So this BnB can't even supply a full breakfast for all of its customers.
Not to mention the house was constantly trashed. I guess the owner named it the bottle inn b/c of all the open containers that were left around this house.
People on Trip Adviser. I am not a complainer, and I never post things, but this is why Trip Adviser is so useful. Hopefully you will read this and NOT STAY HERE.
The owner needs to go to AA and maybe a Dale Carnegie course or two before he opens his doors for business.
DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE NICE VIDEOS OF THE ROOM, THAT BY FAR IS THE BEST PART ABOUT THE ENTIRE BnB.
Oh yea, the location is good. But everything else was the worst I have ever seen.
Thank you for your time, I hope this review will help you on your Key West Trip.
