I discovered the Merlin House, by chance.  Was concerned before arriving that it wouldn’t be what we expected.  Was I ever surprised and, especially pleased.  The staff, the rooms, the surroundings, were all great.  The room was very nice and very clean.  All the staff, including cleaning personnel, were friendly and very helpful

My husband and I, unfortunately became very sick, while there.  The hotel couldn’t have treated us better.  The desk clerk, Linda, actually came to our room that evening to change our linens since we could hardly get out of bed.  Everyone was  so helpful and kind.  They certainly went above and beyond.

I can’t wait to visit Key West again ,,,,and we will  definitely want to stay at the Merlin Guesthouse.

I researched Historic Key West Inns online and I feel that our choice of the Lighthouse Court Hotel was excellent. We stayed just one night in the D unit. Next time I want to stay more nights! We got off the Ft. Myers-Key West ferry, walked 3 blocks to Eaton’s bicycle rental and biked over to the hotel. We were 2 hours before check-in, but the desk clerk said our rooms were ready, so she gave us the keys and a 2-for-one drink ticket at the Mojito Bar. She seemed pleased that we arrived by bicycle, and there were several bike racks in front where we had already locked our bikes. I went for a swim in the lovely pool while enjoying my mango drink and the resident rooster.

This is a nice sized place, not too big. It’s got several cottages surrounding the pool area. Some of the rooms are on the 2nd level.

Our room was very clean, the bathroom very large, and we had plenty of towels including striped swim towels. The morning breakfast was more than we expected: coffee, tea, orange juice, fresh fruit, dry cereal & mik, yogurt, ham/cheese croissants, bagels and toast. We split the croissants and toasted them in the nearby toaster oven. Yum! Breakfast service officially started at 8:00, but it was closer to 8:30 by the time everything was brought out. That was not a problem, though, as we left our room at 6:45 a.m. to watch the sunset and found take-out Cuban coffee nearby.

My California cousin will be visiting Key West next month, and I will insist that he stay at the Lighthouse Court hotel.

Thanks to Aylenna and Betsy — their help made our stay in Key West so enjoyable!!  They were so helpful with information about where to eat, tour recommendations and just general information.

Our room was great — on the second floor we had a nice view of the pool, the roof tops and the beautiful trees and flowers on the property.  Our private porch was a great place to enjoy morning coffee.

This place is in the PERFECT location to everywhere! The staff are great and the room smelled so good and was so clean when we checked in. We are DEFINITELY coming back next January. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars is because the bed was quite firm, but later learned that they offered mattress pads for a plush nights sleep. I would recommend this place to everyone!! Room 21- we will see you next year! Thank You Key Lime Inn

When our extended family gathered for Christmas 2012 in Key West, we all stayed at the Key Lime Inn.  We’d booked 5 rooms for 4 nights, and all ages had a great time.  The hotel was impeccably clean, and the patio around the heated pool was a wonderful place to gather.  The staff was cheerful and very helpful.  We got excellent dining suggestions from the desk staff, and location of the hotel was convenient for walking anyplace in town.  We were very pleased with our stay!

Perfect location. Great room. Nice setting. Only room for improvement would be: new upper deck, better product in bathroom, less roosters in middle of night! :)

Loved Santiago and Blackfinn restaurants.

Look forward to returning in 2014!

We had an excellent stay in the Merlin Guesthouse. The staff was friendly and helpful. The Atmosphere with the special style was very relaxing. The room was small but cozy and clean. The open air Breakfast was really good. The location was perfect – calm, one street behind the Duval Street.

We booked our stay here not knowing what to expect except what we saw from the website pictures. Our room/suite was better than we could have hoped-knowing there are much pricier places in Key West. Very comfortable bed, lots of room, private “front porch”, and both AC and ceiling fans, with a nice TV- all made for a comfortable stay after cruising around town all day. We will definitely be back to stay here again!

Danielle handled our multiple unit arrangements without a hitch and all of the staff were professional and friendly.  The pool was ideal, the breakfasts were delicious, the happy hour was appreciated.  The only suggestion is to be diligent in maintenance, especially as it relates to the facade.  One missing rail baluster can degrade the initial impression.  Other than that, I look forward to returning to another HKWI property the next time in KW.

Thanks
