The hotel is very well located. The room was very nice, clean, quiet. Good lighting levels and temperature controls. Breakfast was nicely served by the pool. The staff was helpful. Be careful to park in the hotel lot. I got a parking ticket. I will not hesitate to recommend it.

One of the best quiet places to stay in Key West but not breaking the bank. We stayed in room 13 which was really large with large bedroom. Cozy patio and pool. Staff was very nice working hard to accommodate our needs.

We had an amazing experience at the Merlin Guesthouse. The staff was so nice, we were a little late getting in and the women at the front desk stayed late to wait for us to get in. The location was perfect, just a block from town. It was like a hidden secret from the 4th of July madness, very clean  and relaxing. We will definitely be staying again!

We recently stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse. It was a great experience. The location is perfect for those who want to explore Key West. Everything is within walking distance. The Guesthouse is quant and clean. From the moment we checked in until we left, everyone treated us as family. We arrived in Key West from the Ft. Myer’s Ferry Express. It is about 8 short blocks to the Guesthouse, we only had carry on bags and the walk was not a problem, flat, nice sidewalks, gift shops to explore along the way. I would recommend The Green Parrot and Willie T’s if you are looking for music. Both had excellent bands.

Thanks for the hospitality!!

Hotel was very close to action on Duval street, quiet, and clean.  The staff was very friendly and the bed was comfortable.  Parking was limited so once we had a spot we did not move the car- used bikes.

My family, friends, and I recently stayed for a week at The Merlin Guesthouse for my wedding. My husband and I had stayed at The Merlin Guesthouse last year and were blown away by the beautiful rooms, gorgeous scenery, and friendly and knowledgeable staff. We felt very comfortable that our wedding guests would be very well taken care of and would love The Merlin Guesthouse as much as we did. Our guests absolutely loved their time there and are already thinking of visiting again in a few months. The staff were so great and accommodating to all of our guests and were super helpful on our wedding day. The staff at The Merlin Guesthouse makes you feel like family and we were more than happy with our recent stay there. I would highly recommend this gorgeous guesthouse to any visitor of Key West. It’s a perfect place to vacation and relax!

My wife and I couldn’t have selected a more perfect retreat for our honeymoon!  We were greeted with the most accommodating staff during our stay.  Our guesthouse (#15) was the perfect combination of comfort and relaxation -very spacious and private.  Hot coffee, fresh juice, delicious pastries, varieties of cereals and oatmeals, and the local newspaper were provided each morning outside near the pool.  Yes there’s a pool!  The pool was ideal on days when we just felt like lounging in the privacy of the quaint space Merlin has created with luscious plants and flowers.  We recommend Merlin Guesthouse as a place for anyone who is looking for a getaway paradise!

I booked the guesthouse on booking.com 10 minutes before I went to the place, and Linda had our stuff already printed out.  Linda, was an absolute sweetheart! She told us everything we needed to know, gave us our room keys and we were all good.  The room was very nice studio size room which is more than we needed. The room was clean and bed was comfortable.  I wish there was a mini fridge of some sort in this room, but we made do with the ice machine and a cooler I had in my car.  They were very accommodating with my car as well.  The only real issue was the road traffic.  At around 6am trucks were driving up and down which sounded like they were coming through the room.  Im sure if we were in the back of the building it wouldn’t have been so bad, but our room was right on the road.  Not much the guesthouse can do about that, but it sucked having a wake up call at 6am, when I didn’t want one.  Other than that everything worked out great.  The continental breakfast was also good in the morning… They had bagels, muffins, cereal, coffee, yogurt, and orange juice!  Check out was a breeze, and they allowed me to leave my car parked there for a few hours while me and my girlfriend walked around until we had to leave.  Great Place.. would definitely be back!!!
