We stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse and were really impressed with the cleanliness of the room and friendly staff. We are looking to go back for a 5 to 6 nights stay at the end of June and will definitely consider Merlin Guesthouse again as our first choice when we start shopping for rooms.

WOW!! Small, romantic, clean, private, beautiful, welcoming, I don’t have enough words to describe what we think of Historic Key West Inns. The staff was amazing, the room was small but beautiful, everything was extremely clean. We stayed at one of these inns after our stay ran out at “THE REACH WORLD OF ASTORIA” , and we needed a room to stay for few more nights. Coming from overpriced rooms, ridiculous $20/night parking fee for a hotel where you are paying $800/night , and $70 for a breakfast for 2, we couldn’t be happier with our wonderful room at Historic Key West Inns, with our Included Breakfast and amazingly welcoming staff. Would recommend to anyone. Upgrade from the “WORLD OF ASTORIA” to “Historic Key West Inns”.

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.
