Everything was really lovely. The units and grounds are kept neat and clean. Breakfast was quite nice and relaxing. I will be back!

We stayed for four nights at the Merlin Guest House.  There are so many positive aspects of this property that I’ll try to highlight our favorites.  First of all, the staff was wonderful!  Linda, Kenneth and Micheall went above and beyond with their hospitality and knowledge of the area.  This was our first visit to Key West, so the information they gave helped us to focus on some really amazing things to do and places to eat.  The room was small but extremely clean and comfortable.  The breakfast poolside was the same every morning, but the coffee was hot and the muffins were delicious!  The absolute best thing about the Merlin Guest House in our opinion, was the location.  We rented a car from Ft. Lauderdale, but once we got to Key West we never drove it for 4 days.  We were even going to rent bikes to get around, but from the hotel everything is within walking distance – what a great spot!  If we ever get the chance to go back, there is no doubt we will be calling the hotel directly to get our reservations!  What a gem!

We stayed upstairs at Merlin Guest House and loved it. Clean, spacious, cool and a nice breeze morning and evening. Very private and quiet. Not much view. Walking distance to everything, never moved the Denali after parking it. Recommend dinner at the Grill across the street. Will go back to Merlin Guest House anytime.

The friendly and responsive staff at the Merlin Guest House helped to make sure that our stay was very enjoyable.  The central location in the old town area gave us a excellent base to explore Key West. My wife and I enthusiastically recommend the Merlin Guest House.

Perfect location! My husband and I and another couple stayed at Merlin Guest House for a second time and we just love it there! The location is great and the whole atmosphere there is wonderful! Kenneth who works there is very friendly and is always willing to answer any questions we have! Also the pool area is very relaxing. We will definitely be back for a third visit!

Great location for access to downtown restaurants and museums, sunsets in Mallory Square, and sunrises at the Southernmost Point and Higgs Beach.  Enjoyed the quietude of the pool in the center of the garden-like atmosphere.  Rooms were clean, and the area was well maintained.

As we stayed 8 days, we would have preferred a little more variation in the breakfast, but I guess that is not a problem for people that are there only a few days.  Rooms were nice. In this age of technology, it would have been nice to have a small desk for our laptop.
