My 2nd time staying at the Merlin. I travel alone from Vermont to Key West once a year for Thanksgiving week. Last week I stayed at the Merlin again. Linda and Ken are the best staffers I have ever come across. Both are very personable, friendly and will do anything to make sure my stay was excellent. I love chatting with Ken and Linda has a warm personality and makes you feel at home. The rooms are always clean. The housekeepers are nice and do a great job. The free breakfast and coffee is nice to wake up to. Overall A++ Best in Key West, will stay again. Give Ken and Linda  raise!!

We had a very nice room . The area was nice and close to everything. The room was on the street and that was very noisy , we awakened many times because of trucks and other noises. We wished we knew  because we would have picked a different part of the guesthouse. The pool area was great and the the breakfast was very good. We had a great time any way.

We had a wonderful stay and will be booking again for the races next year. The Inn was in a great location and was kept extremely clean.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Merlin Guesthouse. The location was perfect and so close to everything we wanted to see and do. Our room was great! Very neat and clean. I would stay here again whenever I return to key west! We very much enjoyed Jordan and Sushi, your furry staff kitties! Jordan would be there to greet me almost every morning! Thank you for a great stay!

Enjoyed our stay and the location.  The courtyard experience and the grouping of building gave the neighborhood feeling of Key West.  Wish we could return before the first of the year!

Went for my wife’s 40th. The place was perfect to just hang and relax, but so close to the action of Duval St. Could walk every where and they had a place to lock up our rented bikes. The room was great booked a king suite had more than enough space plus a large bathroom with a private porch under cover so we could sit outside during a rain storm. Breakfast every morning on the deck in the shade was great. I would tell all my friends to book this place. The best thing was once we walk our one block off Duval to the Guesthouse it was peaceful and quite.

We had a weekend stay here early this month & could not have been happier. From check-in to check-out, actually pre check-in to post check-out, the customer service is second to none. Always smiling, pleasant, willing to do whatever it takes to make you feel welcome. (not like a couple other not to be named places that make you feel like they are doing you a favor by letting you overpay to stay at their B&B). Our flight landed at noon & they held our bags for us & called us when our room was ready…2 hours before check-in time. There was a huge rain storm the afternoon we checked out & they let us shower & get cleaned up before our flight!!! We stayed in the economy queen room & couldn’t have been happier. Hardwood floors throughout, VERY comfortable bed, good size bathroom. These room share a long covered porch with the other economy queen rooms right on Simonton & are very quiet, especially being on a busier street. If you get up early as we do & use roosters as your alarm clock, you will have to actually set an alarm…we didn’t hear a single one!!!

We turned up around 9pm just driving around. Pulled up outside and a lovely chap showed us the rooms and straight away we knew this was going to be a nice place. We had 3 days. The room was large, clean and well presented. The location is excellent. The pool area was very refreshing and well maintained. We enjoyed breakfast in the garden. We will definitely stop again when in Key West.
