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!

Great location, walking distance to many attractions. Room was clean and big enough for a quick weekend getaway. Hotel staff was very friendly and I look forward to my next stay here!

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!!!

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
