Really the only concern we had about the Merlin Guesthouse was the parking and that was addressed the second we walked into the cute check in room that instantly makes you feel like home. Not only did the receptionist check us in but she went out to help us find a spot on the street. Free of charge, hassle and worry free!

Celebrating our one year wedding anniversary they booked us a very quiet and romantic.  It was at the back of the property.  It was the perfect size, comfort level and provided extra kitchen amenities including a little fridge and glasses.

The staff always greeted us with a smile and resident cat Jordan added the perfect charm and character. Breakfast by the pool was relaxing each morning with just enough options for an included breakfast, before setting out to a perfect 5 minute walk to Duval Street.  Quiet enough to relax at night while still close enough to all the night life.

We we truly felt like family and can’t wait to return to Key West.  The Merlin Guesthouse is a huge reason why.

My wife and I decided to go down to Key West for a little R & R.  We couldn’t be happier with our decision of staying at the Merlin Guesthouse.  We were delighted with the grounds, the ease of parking availability on property and how pleasant the inn keepers were with us.  The property is very quiet and offers a pool and complimentary breakfast which exceeded my expectations.  The best part of this inn which really feels like a Bed and Breakfast was the location of the property.  You are a block away from Duval St. and many other great restaurants which is convenient.  I definitely plan on making a return in the near future.

Thanks,

– Mike & Bridgette

This place is perfectly located just one street parallel to Duval St, right dead center of old key west. The staff was great, and the accommodations were wonderful. The room we stayed in was had an updated modern decor, and the property’s patio landscape made for a  beautiful setting to eat breakfast.

This was my first visit to Key West as well as staying at a guesthouse. From the moment my girlfriend and I arrived, the staff was amazing. They are on top of everything and always there when you have a question or need something. The atmosphere was wonderful and laid back. The breakfast was served every morning and it was to die for! Best of all it has a resident cat and the property manager even thanked us for coming to stay. I’ll definitely be back their when I visit!!

We have stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse property on multiple occasions and it is always a pleasure. The staff is always approachable and accommodating and the room was in excellent condition. I highly recommend the Merlin for the quality of the property and staff, as well as the convenient location.

My wife and I stayed at Merlin Guesthouse for 5-nights in May of 2015.  The hotel met or exceeded all of our expectations.  The staff were friendly/accommodating during the check-in/check-out process as they allowed us to check-in early upon arrival and offered to store our bags for us during the day of our departure.  Our Standard Queen room was very clean and comfortable, we loved the hardwood flooring, modern lighting and updated bathrooms.  The jetted pool area was also very relaxing.  Great location, just far enough off of Duval St to enjoy the quiet/peaceful side of Key West but just close enough to enjoy the nightlife only a few steps away.  Jordan (the cat) always seemed to be waiting for us upon coming back to our room at night.  We have now stayed at both the Lighthouse Court Hotel and the Merlin Guesthouse and would like to try the Cypress House Hotel on a future visit.  We would definitely recommend their Historic Key West Inns hotels to anyone traveling to Key West!

We enjoyed a fantastic 2 night stay Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend 2015.  It was our first stay at your hotel and we surely hope it will not be our last.  We arrived Saturday afternoon shortly after the Key West Express arrived from Fort Myers, at about 12:30pm.  We were greeted by a very professional and pleasant lady at check-in and to our pleasant surprise found our rooms for both ourselves and our traveling companions already available for us to check into.  I wish we could remember her name as she was extremely helpful and friendly and even stopped by our tables at breakfast the next morning to see if everything was going well with our stay and our visit.  We found the hotel room and amenities to be spectacular; far above our prior experiences at other area B&Bs (none of which were related to the Historic Key West Inns family).  The hotel’s location couldn’t be more perfect; just one block off the center of Duval Street and in very comfortable walking distance to all our favorite restaurants and watering holes; so enjoyed Blue Heaven and The Green Parrot!  The whole experience was really fantastic and we’ve already recommended it to several friends and are looking forward to our next stay.  Thank you to everyone that made our stay so enjoyable.  Hope to see you again soon!

Talk about a relaxing and wonderful stay! If you’re looking for a place to stay in Key West look no further!! The Merlin Guesthouse exceeded our expectations. The room was immaculate, the location was ideal and the staff was very friendly and professional. The Free breakfast in the morning couldn’t be more relaxing and yummy. I would give Merlin Guesthouse 10 stars if I could. I will most def be booking with them again, they make me want to visit key west again and again just to stay there!!
