Our group of 7 women friends stayed in a 2 bedroom & a 1 bedroom cottage for 4 nights.  The cottages were clean and inviting.  Plenty of room to hang out & play games in the evenings.  Starting the day with the complimentary breakfast while sitting on the deck was wonderful!  Coming from Wisconsin, we definitely enjoyed the weather at this time of year!  The location of Merlin Guesthouse was great!  1 block from Duval Street, and a couple of blocks walk to catch the Conch Train.  Very convenient to everything!  Staff was knowledgeable, and helpful.  We would definitely stay here again, and some of us plan to return with our husbands.

This hotel is beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay here! The one bedroom cottage was very spacious with a huge living area and full kitchen. The back bedroom was a little noisy in the morning, and the pull-out coach was adequate but still a couch. The room and grounds are absolutely beautiful with lots of outdoor space to enjoy, like porches and patios. Nice continental breakfast served daily. Great guest service. Parking not a problem.  Walking distance to everything. Lee was super helpful, checking us in over the phone when we were running late! We will be back to hang out on the shady patio and front porch! ;)

The Merlin Guesthouse is a beautiful place to stay. Close yet far enough from Duval Street’s action. Everything was well maintained and all the staff was responsive and helpful at all times. We loved our stay there and look forward to another visit!

Upon arriving at the Merlin Guesthouse we were just in awe at how secluded and serene everything was, from the pool deck, to the hammock and lush landscape.  We could have not asked for a more awesome place to stay especially considering it’s less than a 3 minute walk to Duval St.  The ladies made us feel very welcomed and were not afraid to have fluent conversations which makes you feel like friends. The housekeeping staff was fabulous and always came to freshen up while we were out. A special treat for me was the fantasist breakfast better than what most hotels offer their guest. Be sure to pet the sweet cat of whom I absolutely adored during my stay when I missed my own from home!

This is one of the best and friendliest guest houses we have stayed in at Key West and would recommend its cleanliness and position near Duval Street. We are from the UK and had a very good stay at the Merlin Guesthouse.

Abbiamo soggiornato due notti al Merlin Guesthouse ed è stata un’esperienza assolutamente positiva e che spero di poter ripetere. La location e’ ottimale nella zona centrale di key west piena di ristoranti e negozi. La dimora e’una meraviglia per l’ambiente che si respira,incantevole giardino interno dove viene servita la colazione in mezzo a piante, fiori  e tanta tranquillità . Nel giardino c’è anche una piscina con asciugamani e solari gratuiti e ad uso dei clienti.L’ambiente è piacevolmente familiare,il personale gentile e sempre pronto a rispondere a tutte le richieste. La camera e’ pulita ed accogliente, unico neo la mancanza di un piccolo armadio dove mettere gli abiti  ed una porta del bagno non adatta a garantire la giusta privacy.  Comunque, fantastica key west e soggiorno perfetto!

We recently visited Key West to celebrate our sons 21st birthday! What better place to enjoy turning 21 than Key West! On our trip we were lucky enough to stay at the Merlin Guesthouse! I must say what an amazing place to stay! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the one bedroom cottage 18 and my dad stayed in a queen room 11! Our room was very clean and inviting! It had a pullout queen couch so cottage fit 4 of us perfect! My dads queen room was also perfect! The Merlin Guesthouse is located just far enough off the “main drag” that it is very quiet! We got a great nights sleep both nights we were there! Our rooms had everything we needed so we never had to request anything from housekeeping. The check in and check out process smooth! We  would defiantly stay here again And I will recommend the Merlin Guesthouse to any and all my friends traveling to Key West!! Thank you for helping make our sons 21st birthday one he will never forget! We all can’t wait to come visit again!

My husband and drove down to Key West for one night during our vacation at Fort Myers Beach.  We booked one night at the Merlin Guesthouse and were very pleased with everything about the place.  The property itself was cute.  It had a tropical lush green courtyard with a little pool…and the breakfast out there in the morning was very nice.  Our room was clean and quiet.  The location was perfect…very central to getting to everywhere we wanted to go.  Upon check-in the gentleman helping us suggested where we could rent bikes.  That is a must-do on the island…biking everywhere is easy.  We would definitely stay at the Merlin Guesthouse again (we hope to return to Key West sometime) and we would also recommend it to our friends and family.
