Love the Merlin Guesthouse! Will definitely be returning! Staff was friendly, and very helpful. Loved the breakfast. So nice being able to park your car and walk everywhere.  Can’t wait to return!

My husband and I visit Key West for our wedding anniversary every summer- this summer marked 9 years. On our third visit to Key West we stayed at the Merlin Guest House and we have stayed there every summer since. My husband books on-line and we have never had an issue. The only bad part about checking out is that it means that we have to leave. We love the rooms- they are always clean and ready for us when we arrive. All of the staff from the person who checks us in to the grounds keepers and cleaning staff are always pleasant, knowledgeable, willing to share a smile or answer a question-always. The staff have always helped in any way they could to help us to have the most pleasureable experience possible. Anytime we hear of someone taking a trip to Key West we suggest they stay at the Merlin Guest House. I really wish that I had noted the name of the staff on duty while we were there because all of them were exceptional.

Some of our favorite places to visit while in Key West are the dessert restaurant Better Than Sex, Conch Republic, Pinchers, Mallory Square and this year we took the Fury Jet Ski Tour and had a wonderful time.

All in all as long as the staff at your hotel continue to do what they have been doing for the past nine summers I do not have any plans to ever stay anyplace else. :)

Sincerely,

Christina

The Merlin Guesthouse was a great experience for my partner and I. Our room was clean and quaint with the old Key West ambiance. The location was convenient and the staff was helpful. I would definitely reserve a stay here again.

We had a wonderful time at the Merlin Guesthouse. At first I was worried with the parking, but was able to park very easily on the side street. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We really appreciated the suggestion to go to Zachary Taylor State Park. That was the highlight of our trip. We spent our whole day there, eating lunch at the picnic tables, snorkeling, and enjoying the warm water. The cottage was very clean and the daily housekeeping was appreciated. We will definitely stay here again.

We spent two nights in room 20 and had stayed there before.  We were very happy with Linda’s personalized service, from taking the reservation to making sure that everything was OK with me.  It was my belated BDay that I was celebrating.   Breakfast would be the only thing that could be improved.  Different pastries, maybe a waffle or pancake station.  But all very good and will return!

I was joining family on Center Street. I needed a place close by so I could get away for rest and relaxation. The Merlin was perfect. The room was small but perfect for my needs. Bed was comfortable. Bath was stocked with everything I needed. I would recommend Merlin Guesthouse to anyone looking for accommodations that were friendly, close and accessible to Duval Street. Thank you for making my visit to Key West so pleasant.

We had a great stay at the Merlin Guesthouse.  We arrived early because we stayed in Little Torch Key the night before and had to leave by 11 am.  We were greeted  with a friendly smile, they checked to see if our room was ready which it was. Then we were assisted in finding a close parking place .  Linda was awesome!  The breakfast was very nice.  Have already recommended to my friends for a great place to stay in Key West!

We had such great time we had in Key West staying in one of your 1 bedroom cottages. It was a great experience for my family. The staff were very gracious hosts and we loved breakfast in the garden. We are already planning a trip back in the near future we hope.

My husband and I had reservations for 2 nights and enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay for an additional night.  The property is within walking distance of almost everything downtown.  While on the property you have a secluded and quiet atmosphere and you can walk one block down and be on Duval Street.  You have the best of both worlds here.  The staff was great and very friendly.  We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
