When my husband and I went to check out, Kenneth at the front desk asked, “Why?”  We did not have a great answer for him.  Our two-night trip to Key West was wonderful.  Merlin Guest House was conveniently nestled in the historic area of Key West, close to all spots.  Their breakfast area, heated pool and porch outside our room were perfect for our late spring visit.  The charisma of our host, Kenneth, added to the charm of the house.  We’ll come again!

The Merlin Guest House was a wonderful choice in downtown Key West. The room was spacious, very clean, and quiet.  The location is ideal because it is far enough away from downtown to be quiet at night, yet close enough to walk anywhere in old town.  The breakfast was delicious and healthy and the staff was courteous and helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.

Had a good and comfortable stay at the Merlin Guest House. Loved the outdoor courtyard. Being a group of 6 found the outdoor area great. Walking to Duval Street or hopping the train was close by.

What a great place! From the cleanliness of the grounds to the friendliness of the staff.  Would definitely stay here again for our annual Key West trip.  Go visit the Bloody Mary Bar at the Blue McCaw right down the street.

We had a wonderful 3 nite stay at the Merlin Guest House. The location was perfect – we could walk everywhere – our room was lovely – very comfortable.  Hope to return someday…

My husband & I have vacationed in Key West several times. This time we each brought one of our siblings and their spouse.  We were able to have such a fun time on Duval but also come back to our rooms and have such an amazing  and relaxing time.  We were so impressed with the staff and accommodations.  We would just love to be able to come back and stay.  Thank you for such an amazing visit!

Just spent two nights at this great hotel in Key West. The rooms contained just what you need, very clean and cozy. Great staff and a nice sun deck with a small pool. The location is great just one street north of Duval Street. We will come back for sure!

The room was great – my only comment is that perhaps not enough space to hang clothes – but who needs to hang clothes in KW!  Staff was great, supplies were adequate and breakfast food was plentiful.   Merlin Guest House is the best location – close enough to Duval St. but peaceful.
