This was our second stay at the Merlin Guesthouse. The first time we stayed with another couple in the two bedroom suite. It was amazing! It had a huge kitchen and parking space for our car.  It was very clean and comforting. It made our trip so enjoyable that we decided to come back two years later and stay at the Merlin Guesthouse for the second time. The staff are all so sweet and they make sure that they can help you get around to wherever you like. They told us where to park and just made us feel right at home. Everything was clean and like new. The second time we stayed in a one bedroom with a king bed and a balcony. It was breathtaking! Close to Duval street, close to everything! Can not wait to go back and see what other room we get to add to our stays!

We stayed at Merlin Guesthouse for 4 nights in May. We absolutely loved our experience here! The room was clean and surprisingly large (room 16). The location of this property can’t be beaten, we walked everywhere! Staff was friendly, and helpful at all of our interactions, even helping us find free street parking. We would happily stay here again.

This is my second time staying here and as expected it was great. The only issue i had was the size of room number 8 since i was accustomed to the king suite last time, but either way i will be back. The staff are courteous and attentive and rooms are always clean

I have been trying to get to Key West for years and found a great flight on Southwest Airlines from New Orleans.  I was looking for a place to stay and decided on Historic Key West Inns and the Merlin Guest House.  I checked in and found a wonderful room.  Unfortunately the WIFI didn’t work in that room so Kenneth moved me to a different room which was perfect.

Kenneth did an excellent job of taking care of everything, always checking with the guests and an all around great guy. He was well informed, knew the island and had wonderful ideas on what to see and what to miss.

My trip was better than I expected and I do plan to return soon with my family.  I would highly suggest Historic Key West Inns.

We stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse in May for a week.

We were very happy with the service. Parking available nearby without an issue.
Upon arrival, the staff ushered us quickly through the reception process and into our cool room.
We stayed in the economy room and it was perfect for our needs.
The room was clean and well maintained.
While we were there, we  got information about local tours/attractions and it helped us plan our vacation.

Unfortunately, it was raining during the week we were there, we had to end our vacation earlier. The staff was very accommodating of our request.

The continental breakfast was provided on time. Perfect meal to start your day. I would recommend if they added more non-pork options for those who cannot eat pork for religious reasons.

Overall, we plan to return to Merlin in the future. I would recommend this place wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to be close to the major attractions in they Key West.

We spent three nights in April at the Merlin Guesthouse and found it to be clean and well maintained. We stayed in Room 16 which is an upstair king suite. The room was larger than we expected and had a large sitting area with a sectional sofa and 42″ flatscreen tv.  It also had a private deck and was in a quiet location.

The inn is near the activity on Duvall Street but far enough away to avoid the noise.  It is within walking distance of all the attractions on Key West. The management and staff was friendly and helpful.  We would definitely stay there again.

Our first stay at Key West.   The room was small, but very clean and just enough space for us.  The staff were gracious and helpful in finding where to find transportation,  good places to eat, and also where to visit.   We highly recommend and will again visit Merlin Guesthouse.

My husband and I were invited down to a family friends wedding at the Merlin Guesthouse in May.  It was a very quaint and nice house with lots of character.  Our room was a queen with a pretty four poster bed and beautiful hardwood floors.  A cozy little room but all we needed it for was to sleep and shower so it was just perfect.  Nice pool/jacuzzi that we made good use of.  Having  the breakfast there was a treat since we didn’t have to find a restaurant and there was plenty of food to get you going for the day.  I can’t say enough about the staff and how wonderful they were to all of us staying there.  Three different women tried to print out my boarding pass and with computers it was not happy with anything but they went above and beyond to try and help me.  I would highly recomend a stay at the Merlin Guesthouse if you are ever in Key West.
