Excellent and extremely friendly personnel (especially Kenneth and the elder Lady whom I do not remember the name) and service, nice pool. Cool heater and fridge quite loud and noticable in Cottage 15.

Dear Julia and staff,

This was the first trip for my girlfriend to Key West and it was a memorable one. I asked her to marry me while vacationing there. The staff, in particular (Linda) was outstanding. When our Ferry back to Ft. Myers was canceled she called my cell phone directly to let me know and made arrangements at a discounted price for us to stay another night. This is HUGE customer service that seems to have disappeared with the times. I appreciated it immensely. The facility was clean, breakfast was very pleasant and other guest were polite and kind. The only suggestion that I believe customers looking to stay there is that rooms 1-6 are located on a main road and the noise is a bit much. Other than that our stay was incredible and we are happy to announce that thanks to our friends Alexis and Charla over at the Floridays we are engaged to be married!

Last year I stayed at Albury Court and was impressed with their facilities as well. I would recommend all of the Historic Key West Inns to friends and family. Thanks for a memorable stay.

My wife and I had a 3 day getaway and stayed in room 16. The room, amenities,  and staff were great. We will definitely be visiting again!

My wife and I had never been to Key West before but after the experience we had at the Merlin Guesthouse we are DEFINITELY coming back!

The staff were amazing (Linda at the front desk was very sweet), the room was perfect and the relaxation we achieved laying by the pool was top notch! And they even have an amazing mascot/pet/inn cat named Jordan del Gato, who we are pretty sure is Ernest Hemingway reincarnated.

Do yourself a favor and stay here when in Key West.

My husband, brother and sister-in-law stayed in the 2bedroom guest cottage (#19) for an overnight in early December.

The unit was extremely clean, spacious, quiet, and comfortable.  The little outdoor patio area was a plus, as was the quick walk to Duval St.

Our check-in and check-out was efficient and pleasant.  The people who we spoke to gave us lots of information and help getting around.

The pool was a wonderful plus and we welcomed it after the walk from the Key West Express dock.

The continental breakfast was delicious!

We would come and stay again and would recommend  it to friends and family.

Thanks Merlin Guesthouse for a wonderful stay in Key West!

Our family stayed in room 15. The room was huge!!! A full service kitchen that was a delight for a family! One quick block from Duval Street and really clean! The small pool was a bit cold, but refreshing after a long hot summer day! The continental breakfast was ok, but terrific strong coffee! Jordan the cat was our adopted cat for the stay and the decor of the room was modern and fresh! We were delighted and will definitely stay again!

This was our first time to Key West, we went for our honeymoon, and this was a wonderful bed and breakfast! We only stayed for one night before heading to Marathon, and Lee was awesome! After learning we were on our honeymoon she upgraded us to a nice little “suite”, room #16. It was beautiful and very secluded, we enjoyed a dip in the pool after a night on Duval St. (even though we were in the middle of town, with all the palm trees surrounding us it was a very tropical feeling!), and a nice little breakfast in the morning. It is only a block away from Duval St and with parking hard to find we could walk everywhere! We will definitely stay here again when we return to the Florida Keys!! Thanks again Lee!!

A group of us stayed here last weekend for a birthday celebration. This place was much more than I expected. We had a King suite room (#16) and the room was beautiful. Clean, looked newly renovated, had a leather couch, flat screen TV, refrigerator, and two air conditioners, and a private porch with tables and chairs. King bed was extremely comfortable. It was less than 2 blocks from Duval street so it was close enough but quiet at the guesthouse. They have a nice continental breakfast in the garden area by the pool. They don’t rush you out if you come down late. As long as people are still eating they will leave it open. Staff was very friendly. The only complaint I would have is bathroom was a little small and the stairs to get to that room.

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.
