Just returning from our stay at the Merlin Guest House and already trying to plan our next visit. The on-site staff was amazing with great food and live music suggestions. The pool and courtyard is a perfect area for care-free relaxation. Rooms were spot-free and service was great during our stay. Cannot wait to visit Key West and the Merlin Guest House again!

We had a great room and the continental breakfast was very nice and the people were very welcoming and very friendly.

I highly recommend the Merlin Guest House to stay at in Key West. Just one block off Duval, so close to everything. Great continental breakfast, the staff was friendly and courteous and the rooms were fabulous. Can’t wait to go back.

My husband and I chose this hotel for our honeymoon, and wow did it deliver! We probably had one of the best hotel stays we’ve ever experienced. We wanted to stay close to Duval but far enough away from the noise that we could sleep. The Merlin Guest House was a great choice for us. We stayed in Deluxe King Suite #22 and it was beautiful, spacious and relaxing. I do wish there were more hangers in the closet since we did stay a week but we made do. Everyone at the front desk was most helpful, especially when I called to let them know we were arriving far later than anticipated due to flight delays. I was concerned the room would be given away but was assured that would not be the case and was walked through how to get into our room upon arrival and who to call if we encountered any issues. By the time we arrived the front desk clerk had not quite left and she helped us find our room (it was dark, what can I say!) I was able to go down the next morning and finish checking in — what a breeze! The rest of our stay was absolutely amazing, from breakfast by the pool to housekeeping. I was hesitant at first of staying in a “hotel” for our honeymoon and having to be up and at ’em early so housekeeping could clean but that was definitely not the case here, they are more than accommodating! The front desk even kept our luggage after we checked out until we headed for the airport. We will definitely be back!

A great location and a great room. Spotless! All the staff were welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed the talks with Ken, a fellow Vet. A great restaurant around the block, onto Duval St. called Pincher’s. If you are reading this review and looking for a place to stay, THIS IS IT! Right in the heart of it all and on a quiet location. We walked to everything! We will come back again!

My stay at Merlin Guest House was very comfortable and relaxing.  It was far enough from Duval to be quiet but yet only a block away .  The staff members were very helpful and extremely nice.  I would stay here again for my next visit.

A group of us rode down from Miami on motorcycles and stayed one night at the Merlin Guest House.  The property was pretty and the rooms were really nice and clean.  The staff was very friendly.  If traveling on motorcycles, you need to be aware that the parking lot has thick gravel and no pavement.  So, drive extra careful and you might want to bring a kickstand plate.

Great location tucked away near town.  Clean rooms, quiet, private, nicely landscaped, refreshing pool, well stocked breakfast bar, and friendly & helpful staff.  If you prefer a hot breakfast walk across the street to The Hook.
