We very much enjoyed our stay at the Merlin Guest House.  Loved the convenient location that was walking distance to everything, but out of the craziness.  The pool area was a relaxing place to wind down – the only thing that was missing was a bottle of wine!  The staff was friendly and very helpful.  Highly recommend!

Check-in with Linda is a happy moment. I was in this hôtel 4 years ago and I wanted come back. I recommend it because it is near Duval and not far from the beach. I enjoy the swimming pool and the garden, the rooms are beautiful and comfortable.

My friend and I were here for a three night stay and enjoyed it thoroughly.  This was my second stay here and it has been remodeled and updated.  We stayed in a deluxe king room and had a separate large sitting area, a nice bathroom with huge skylight and very comfortable furniture.  Breakfast out by the pool every morning was so peaceful.  Front desk staff could not have been nicer.  Michelle was the lady that checked us in and she was there every evening.  She was very friendly and helpful.  We enjoyed her very much and took her  recommendations for restaurants both days.  Michelle even came to our car  when we checked in and helped us get our luggage upstairs to our room. This would be my one and only criticism of the property.  We are “ladies of a certain age” and had just returned from a trip to Spain.  This meant that we each a large suitcase and carryon plus we had case of water, several bottles of soft drinks and some wine to get upstairs.  I feel that they should have someone to help with luggage.  It would have been much more difficult without Michelle’s help.   We both found her to be very nice and thought she went “above and beyond”.

This was our 2nd stay at Merlin Guest House and we had another wonderful stay.  The staff are very outgoing and friendly and Jordan the resident cat greets everyone by the pool.  We cannot say enough great things about Merlin Guest House except you have to stay here and see what we love coming here.

Kenneth and Linda were wonderful hosts and just a short walk to the heart of Duval. Convenience plus. Parked our car on arrival and not used again until we left. 5 stars in my book!

I’ve stayed at the Merlin Guest House at least half a dozen times. It’s the best!! Friendly staff, clean rooms and grounds, perfect location (close but not too close to Duval). I look forward to my return!!!

Location location location !  We had a fantastic 3 night stay at the Merlin Guest House this February. The location is perfectly situated just one quiet block from duval street. Restaurants and shops were less than 5 minutes walk away -so we had all the convenience with none of the noise. We were also equidistant between the beach and the marina and spent ample time at both.

The staff was warm and friendly and check in was a breeze. The room was cute and very comfortable, with the AC on from the moment we walked in.  The hotel was perfect for our needs. We would definitely stay there again.

We booked the Merlin Guest House knowing nothing about the property, thinking we were only going to sleep there so we will take the chance. What a surprise! Not only was the place located in the heart of everything it seemed as if we were staying at a private resort. Everyone on the staff was exceptionally nice and the queen room we had was cozy and very clean. Highly recommended and hope to come back soon.
