We stayed at the Merlin Guest House almost a month ago and had amazing stay. I have lived here for 4 years and wanted to plan a little getaway for my wife for our anniversary. 3 years ago when we first got together we stumbled into the pool area late one night on our drunken walk home and maybe had too much fun in the pool as we were told on the way out we almost got called on for trespassing. Which I do apologize for, that’s not like me. I knew it was something special with that girl…well 3 years and a marriage later here we are! So I of course booked a room at the Merlin Guest House as it has been a laughable memory that we never will forget and was the staple to our first night hanging out which led to us being madly in love.

We absolutely loved our stay! The property is just beautiful and pristine! We almost didn’t want to return home right down the road 🙂 Kenny the guy at the front was more than accommodating! He found out it was our anniversary so he was able to upgrade us to almost like our own little apartment with private balcony! We literally had so much fun that night and just enjoyed pretending like we were young, dumb, and falling in love all over again! We both work in very popular restaurants here and better believe I will def be recommending Merlin to people. The prices were great for key west and beautiful place to stay with awesome employees! Can’t beat the location and the friendly cat that’s there!

Again we thank you for a great anniversary night for two locals who just wanted time away from their reality of home. We plan to try and make little getaways like that more often since we had the best time, so will def be looking at your other boutique hotels! So glad we were able to use the pool properly this time! Thanks again for everything!

My husband and I stayed at the Cypress House Hotel in June 2016.  We were in Key West to celebrate his 50th Birthday.   From the moment I made the reservations to our very last day there we had a wonderful experience.

When we arrived we were shown the grounds and to our surprise a nice bottle of champagne to celebrate his birthday.  Our room was perfect with a lovely front porch for us to sit.  The room is kept exceptionally clean and the bed was very comfortable.

Each morning we were offered a “continental” breakfast but honestly I felt it was much more than that.  Offering an egg dish along with the local bagels, muffins, cereal etc…  No need to go out to breakfast because they offered enough each morning.  Each afternoon they offered a cocktail hour and apps that were delicious and filling.  Everyday was a different island cocktail that was great to have while sitting by the pool.  We took advantage of everything there.

This is my first time ever writing a review but I told my husband by the second day we were there I was going to write one for them.  The staff was very kind and everything was kept so clean.  The staff works very hard and it’s very noticeable.  Since this was my first trip to Key West the Cypress House Hotel has made it very easy for us to make a return trip.

Thanks for a wonderful stay and a memorable 50th Birthday celebration for my husband.  Since we are a family of 5 we don’t get away alone often and you made it all worth it.

My husband and I were so looking forward to our Key West vacation this June 2016. We actually reserved at the Casa Marina Waldorf Astoria resort. However when we got there the room we reserved and the room we got was not what was promised and at $500 a night with all the fees and taxes, we were not willing to compromise. Bottom line this resort did not deliver as promised and we were left with no recourse but to scramble last minute on arrival looking for other accommodations.

We were saved by Denise at the Historic Key West Inns hotels. She found us a room at their Cypress House Hotel and even found accommodations for my husband who has difficulty maneuvering stairs. The transition was smooth and we were so grateful. When we arrived Scott was extremely helpful. He was so taken back by our story, all he wanted was for us to have a better experience at Key West and gave us a free parking pass to the garage. To our delighted surprise he placed us in a room with cold champagne already set for us…(apparently a previous anniversary couple’s reservations that somehow didn’t make it). Well it surely didn’t go to waste and we enjoyed the room and champagne tremendously.

The room was perfect with a very nice bathroom, very clean and modern; most important of all in hot summer weather – the AC was strong! This was the first time my husband and I ever stayed at a boutique hotel with a happy hour. Lol – it was yet another nice surprise. We had a great time at the heated pool and the breakfast was nicely carried everyday we were there. The staff was so nice. We loved Marie who was so kind to us at breakfast time, and we had a lovely lady who gave us fresh towels when we asked. The office staff even saved me when my work reached out to have some important paperwork completed; Melissa at the Cypress House office was so kind to print the forms for me so that I was able to complete and send the forms back to my work. She went out of her way to make our stay perfect.

All I can say is that We highly recommend the Cypress House Hotel and the Historic Key West Inns group. Thank you sooooo much for saving our vacation. It started a little rocky but the Historic Key West Inns team saved us, they took charge, and made sure our vacation ended with a BANG! It was awesome! Thank you once again to the Cypress House crew who were so very accommodating. We love you for taking such good care of us ❤️😃😘👍👍👍

Rooms always clean, optimum location on the island, and very friendly staff. Private parking is definitely a plus!

We have stayed at the Key Lime Inn a few times and each time has been amazing! The customer service is wonderful, the bungalow was quaint and pristine and the grounds are very well maintained.

My husband and I stayed at the Merlin Guest House for three nights in celebration of our twentieth anniversary-and I sincerely feel we couldn’t have picked a better place in Key West. The atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable, both in our room and around the court yard.  All our questions were answered…and we were instantly made to feel welcome….not just by the staff, but a wonderful cat who greeted everyone (I wish I could remember his name!)  The Merlin provided us the perfect home base after doing our daily adventures scuba diving and wandering the nearby Duval street.

I am so grateful to have found you guys…thanks for your hospitality. We will definitely recommend you…You may just see us again!  (By the way, our daughter’s name is Merlyn–so it was extra cool hanging out at a place that shared her name)

I can’t say enough about how great our stay way. The location was perfect. Reasonably priced. Every staff member I met was pleasant, helpful, and always asked what else they could do for us. The breakfast was awesome and not just cereal boxes and juice boxes. Freshly made oatmeal bar, breakfast sandwiches, the works, The room was a great size and the porch was perfect. The room even stayed cool in the hot Florida summer. I’ve stayed in many places in Key West. Cypress House Hotel is the only one that I will return to!!
