We chose this guesthouse based on reviews we read for our 2nd anniversary. Everyone was attentive and kind. Ken was a pleasure in the mornings. Linda was perfect and wonderful for advice on places to go. Quaint, quiet and only a block off Duval. Perfect place to choose.

The hotel was great. It was clean. The location was great. We walked everywhere. Free parking on the side of the hotel. The staff was very friendly. Kenneth was working on our last day. He made us feel like at home. I will most definitive come back to the Merlin Guesthouse.

There were seven in our party staying in two different rooms, nineteen (19) and twenty one (21) respectively. The accommodations were very well received. Elegant and very well appointed. The rooms were available in a reasonable time frame and the staff was more than accommodating. We have been staying with your organization for five (5) or more years. I tend to forget how fast time passes these days. We will be back next year either at the Merlin Guesthouse or the Chelsea House, which we’ve stayed for several years.

Have a great year and we’ll see you next year.

My husband had to come to KW for work so I tagged along. I was really surprised when I walked in and saw that our room was small but I was happy about how clean everything was. We stayed 2 nights and realized that a cozy room was just fine. We stayed out and about all day so we didn’t need more space in the room. There is no closet but a nice hook on the wall where we hung our things which was fine. The pool is small, adds to the atmosphere and cool off if necessary. It is nice breakfast is offered ( toast, cereal, yogurt, pastries, coffee, oj etc). We sat in the area with table and chairs by the pool one afternoon and used the wifi and both did some work. There are a couple of bike rental places within walking distance and a bike rack at the guesthouse. We had fun exploring KW on bikes. The staff was very friendly.

Side note – We had a fantastic dinner at Blue Heaven. We were seated at an adorable spot under a giant tree with great blue lights around. Later we were told it is the honeymoon table (we have been married 23 years) We felt like honeymooners here. Our dinner was delicious and our server was great. She told us some history about the place and gave us accurate dinner suggestions. We can’t wait to go back

Overall, The Merlin Guesthouse was a great place to get away for a couple of days.

Our experience at Merlin Guesthouse a wonderful.  The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and most helpful.  Our room was lovely, very clean and comfortable.  We loved having our morning coffee on the deck! We would definitely stay there again.

We were in Marathon lobstering but decided to stay one night in Key West. Our room was very clean. The bed was 4 post and very comfortable. Beautiful old wood floors and beams in ceiling.  Although two blocks from Duval, was very tropical, lush and quiet.

I would like to recognize Linda and the housekeeping staff at the Merlin Guesthouse for their exceptional customer service. On a recent stay, several items were left in the room. Without my inquiry, the staff recovered these items and Linda sent me an email indicating that the items were being held and would arrange shipping with me. Although I did not wish to have the items returned, I do appreciate their effort. If the hotel I stayed at in Vegas this past summer had the same level of customer service your staff does, I may still have my pair of sunglasses I left in their room.

I had a great time at Fantasy Fest.  I usually arrive to watch the Powerboat Races. I have stayed at the Key Lime Inn last year and the Chelsea House the year before. Your Inns are beautiful.

I had the master suite room 13 it was great, comfortable, roomy and clean. I am pleased with all of your inns that I have stayed at. They have that Key West charm. Look forward to next year. See you again.
