We had a wonderful time at Merlin Guest Houses and Linda and Bill went overboard to help us and make us comfortable! We enjoyed having breakfast under the trees and we all had a great time in the pool too! My only negative would be not having a closet in the economy room to keep the room from getting  so cluttered! Mary did a wonderful job with the wedding and Cassandra the photographer was so nice and did an awesome job getting all the right pictures! Great time in Key West at the Merlin Guest House!

Family and friends came to Key West for a long weekend wedding with everyone staying at Merlin Guest House! The hotel was beautiful and welcoming from the moment we arrived. All rooms were ready and wonderfully clean immediately. The entire group used the pool multiple times a day and it was awesome! Small, cool and refreshing with towels always available. The staff was friendly and helpful! Mary Simmons was amazing throughout the entire process of planning and coordinating the wedding and trip. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend! I can’t wait to stay in another historic inn on our next visit!

Linda and the rest of the staff couldn’t have been any more helpful or accommodating. This was our 3rd time staying at Merlin’s Guest House and have been impressed every time. Jordan is always a wonderful ambassador. We will be returning.

My husband and I traveled to Key West to celebrate our anniversary and were delighted to find this charming inn.  We loved the courtyard shaded by tropical plants and enjoyed our breakfast there each morning.  There is a resident cat named Jordan del Gato who lounges leisurely around the property.  We laughed every time we saw him.  We really appreciated small details like a water cooler for refilling water bottles, the Eco Boutique soaps for sensitive skin, and fresh fruit at breakfast.  The staff is very friendly.  Our room was small with lovely wood floors and clean.  We really liked staying on the back side of the inn with a porch and hammock just outside our door.  We walked all over Key West and appreciated the convenient location.  Thank you for a lovely stay.

We had a wonderful time at the Merlin Guest House – our third time visiting Key West. Our accommodations were the best. Kenneth and the two ladies at the front desk were informative about restaurants, and activities in Key West. I would not hesitate to recommend Merlin Guest House as a place to stay. Our fellow guests were varied, interesting, and most were repeat customers. We liked the king room, and might try the first floor next time. We liked 7 Fish and Deuces Off the Hook – both recommended by your staff. We very much look forward to our next visit.

Perfect stay! Accommodations and location could not have been better. Kenneth was awesome, offering his expertise on where to go and what to see. He was wonderful. Also, the other lady (oh dear I am so embarrassed that I forget her name) offered her historic knowledge of the area. It was like a private tour. We will be back!

We stayed at the Merlin Guest House 7/9 – 7/14. Our room was huge and the bed was very comfortable. There is a continental breakfast every morning, however, if you like to sleep in a little there is very little left. The girl that checked us in was so polite and knowledgeable. She recommended “Off The Hook” which is a little restaurant across the street. The food was fabulous!! Will definitely stay there again.

I had a great stay at the Merlin Guest House. I was traveling on my own but I felt very safe and secure there. My room was lovely and just right for me. I would have liked a mini fridge for cold drinks. There was also no place to hang clothes other than some pegs. However those were the only negatives. All the staff was lively. From check in to check out. Lynn especially was very kind and helpful when I locked my keys (including my room key!) in my car! I def will return to the Merlin Guest House in the future!!
