We spent a night at Merlin Guesthouse this past weekend and were amazed at the quality of the accommodations and the pleasant and helpful nature of the staff. From check-in through check-out, the staff was inviting and responsive to our needs. Continental breakfast by the pool was wonderful and the convenient location had us on Duval street after a 2 minute walk.  I would recommend this to friends and family and will definitely be staying here on my next trip down to Key West.

This was our 2nd stay at a Historic Key West Inns hotel, last time was at the Key Lime Inn two years ago, which was great.  We LOVED the Merlin Guesthouse even more.  It was in a great location a block from Duval, we were surprised with a room upgrade upon arrival to a king suite, the room was large, romantic and beautifully decorated, it had a Keurig and a mini-fridge with a private balcony.  The beds are so comfortable and dreamy, the room clean and the pool was great.  Breakfast poolside was incredible, love those ham & cheese croissants.   The coffee was good and the staff was friendly, courteous and very accommodating.  WE will definitely plan our next stay in Key West at the Merlin or another Historic Key West Inns hotel.  Thank you!

We took an overnight trip to Key West at the last minute and contacted Historic Key West Inns – the reservation was very easy and the person helping us was so polite and helpful.  The arrival was very welcoming and personal with smiles and beautiful surroundings. I would highly recommend the Merlin Guesthouse!  The accommodations were very clean, comfortable and quaint.  It was a perfect stay and we will be back again.

There are many choices of where to stay in Key West, and I believe I made the right one in staying here.  The location was terrific in its proximity to Duval St. and all it has to offer… Check in & out was a piece of cake… The staff were very friendly, and gave me insight into times of day to reserve certain events as they were more familiar with the area… Ham & Cheese croissants were warm & so delicious for breakfast :-)  And there was the pool with jets… so soothing after all the walking (great exercise), and nice to have a guaranteed non-paying parking spot… Yes, I would recommend!!

After attending a wedding in town, we stayed the night at the Merlin Guesthouse. Was impressed with the cottage, grounds, and staff. Within walking distance to some great restaurants and attractions. The only thing was the amount it cost, but quite reasonable for everything included. Could not have found a better accommodation for any less money! Thank you for accommodating our stay!

Had a wonderful time in Key West thanks to the great staff at the Merlin Guesthouse. The rooms are clean and the property is kept immaculate. Very tropical the only regret we have is we didn’t stay longer. Will return without question.

My wife and I came down for our honeymoon and we had the best time! I forget the nice man’s name that checked us but he was great! He really took care of us all week and told us some great things to do! We had a great time and we will stay again when we come back!

I can’t say how much we enjoy staying at the Merlin Guesthouse. We just returned for our 3rd stay 4/26/15. We keep coming back for a reason. The staff is super friendly and helpful, we love the location (close to everything), and it feels like staying at your home away from home. I can’t wait to return to Key West and stay at the Merlin Guesthouse again.

Quaint property in an excellent location.  I parked my car when I arrived and didn’t start it up again until I left.  I walked everywhere I wanted to see.  I interacted with Ken and Cindy who were both friendly and helpful (thanks to both for the restaurant recommendations).  Also spent time with Jordan who was also extremely friendly but not very talkative (he’s a cat).

I don’t know where to begin!  Our stay was top notch.  Ken and Linda were awesome.  We stayed three nights in the two bedroom cottage and loved every minute of it.  The pool, the breakfast and all the little extra touches were superb!  I fell the first day there in town and injured my ankle.  Linda went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable…she is a real asset to your team!  We will be back soon, and we will definitely stay at the Merlin Guesthouse again.  Also, Jordan is such a sweetheart!

Thank you for making our trip so wonderful!
