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!

Modern, clean and cool (style and temperature wise). Best pick if you don’t have a car.

Great little place away from the noise of Duval but close enough to walk and enjoy the fun. Great staff, very accommodating.

This is the second year that we stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse. We really enjoyed our stay both times. The room was beautiful and clean and Lee and Kenneth were so friendly and helpful during our time there. We had a very relaxing week and will plan on visiting soon!!

We had a wonderful stay in an incredible luxurious room. The staff were all wonderful and the grounds were magnificent! I would stay there again and again.

Thank you!

My room was extremely pleasant and very reflective of Key West lifestyle. Location is even more perfect just one block away from Duval Street where you can walk anywhere on the island and come home to a quiet comfortable evening away from any crowd and noise. Great staff friendly helpful. Delicious breakfast. A must stay in Key West.

This was our eighth stay at the Merlin (7th for our kids- our first stay was for our wedding/honeymoon). JJ and Savannah are 5 now and have pretty much learned to swim in the Merlin pool. We arrived (late check-in) to a note addressed to JJ and Savannah from the staff welcoming them back – they loved the special attention! Linda, Lee and Ken, as well as the housekeeping staff are always very friendly, attentive and fun to talk to. As always, our entire experience was relaxed, comfortable and pleasant. The room (18) was clean and we had no problems during our stay. We feel like family at the Merlin. Thank you!

Very nice and quiet cottages with a pool. Two blocks off Duval. My friends and I enjoyed our stay there very much and will come back for sure. Thank you for your hospitality.
