It was a pleasure to stay at the Merlin Guesthouse!  We loved the location and our room was perfect for a long weekend away!  We look forward to a return visit and stay at the Merlin Guesthouse!

With palms in the garden, small groups of tables, small pathways and a pool with jacuzzi, Merlin Guesthouse is an oasis in the busy center of Key West.

Clean and cozy room, nice simple breakfast and nice staff. Spent 3 lovely nights and will definitely stay here again!

Thank you for a wonderful long weekend.  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the property at Merlin’s.  I think we have as many pictures of ourselves as we do of the cat, Jordan.  We’ll be back.. For sure.

This was my first say at the Merlin Guesthouse and I was VERY satisfied and happy with the hotel as well as its staff. Everyone was helpful and – HONEST! After misplacing my $350 sunglasses, I searched my room everywhere with no success. Realizing I may have dropped them in the bed and that the beds had been made/ room cleaned, I stopped in the office and right there on the desk were my sunglases located by the cleaning staff and turned over to the front desk. I knew that this wouldn’t have happened at a lot of other hotels. VERY HONEST STAFF and WORKERS THERE!!!

Thanks again Merlin for a great stay. I have not one complaint about the hotel or it’s service.

This was our first visit to Key West. Just a couple blocks off the main strip, the Merlin Guesthouse made us feel at home. Had many late nights sitting on the porch relaxing.

Hello,

Just wanted to say that we all enjoyed our stay at your Merlin Guesthouse. The place was just what we needed and very very comfortable.  The only suggestion I would have is that a nice comfortable chair be available in the living room area as
there were 4 of us and the couch truly only sat 3 people.  I realize there was a chair available in the downstairs bedroom
but some sort of nice comfortable chair as the couch was would have been awesome.  Guess in a way it really doesn’t
matter because we really didn’t spend a whole lot of time in the cottage.  The location was perfect and glad to see
because in my previous stays in Key West we stayed at a couple of places that were only 2 blocks from the Merlin.

Another thing we thought would be nice would be to have the breakfast (which was great) served earlier than 8:00 as
we were always up pretty much by 6:30 / 7:00 each morning.

Good morning,

Yes, we definitely enjoyed our stay, and it was all that we expected and then some.  Very friendly staff, clean and comfortable cottage style Inn.  We also appreciated that we could park our vehicle when we arrived around 12 noon, so that we could walk down to Duval Street without having to worry about parking our vehicle.

We also thought that it was a great deal!

Thank you for an enjoyable stay, we will definitely recommend it to friends.

Cheers

The room was lovely and the customer service was excellent – from checking us in early to calling cabs to recommending a local dry cleaner, we felt right at home!

It was great staying at your place. Very clean, very accessible help from staff.  Good shower pressure, good hot water consistency.

Would stay there again.

Thank you.

My husband and I were delighted to be able to find a room at the Merlin Guesthouse for our one night in Key West. We were able to park the car on the street around the corner, and left it there during our stay. The inn is well-situated in the middle of the tourist area, but off of busy Duval Street. The room on the first floor off the porch was small, but impeccably clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed some time in the spa/pool after a busy day of sightseeing. As we returned to our room after dinner, we noticed a cute gecko in the light on the porch. However, I didn’t want him in our room, so my husband plugged up the small space at the top of the door with a towel.

Breakfast on the patio was tasty, with lots of choices. However, I was surprised that at a B&B (and at the prices charged in KW) there were no homemade breads or muffins offered. My husband liked the individual containers of cereal, instead of a large dispenser.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Merlin, and would recommend it to visitors to Key West.
