We researched a lot of hotels in Key West before booking at Merlin Guesthouse. It was such a historic place to stay. You got the feel of old Key West. Not a busy resort. Our room was perfect with a kitchen and 2 separate bedrooms for the 4 of us. We had a parking spot right next to our building, and 2 entrances into our room, we used both! We loved the courtyard and pool area, and the privacy in these areas. When we hung out during the day or evening, we’d run into other guests regularly and they became like our weekend family. The staff was great, going out of their way for requests of extra towels, coffee, etc.
The location of the hotel couldn’t have been better. We were within walking distance of everything! It is only a block from Duval St, but we didn’t have the traffic, noise, etc. We could walk to the Southernmost Beach in one direction, or all the way to Mallory Square in the other. Easy to get to any restaurants or bars, and always easy to find our way back late at night as well! Bike and scooter rentals were just around the corner, but we did not feel that we needed them.
We all said that we will go back to Key West, and we would definitely stay at Merlin Guesthouse again!By: Tricia from Chicago on February 26, 2013
