The Cypress House was a delight from check-in time to saying good-bye 3 days later.  Staff were friendly and very helpful.  The room was beautiful and had everything we needed available.  Breakfast was nice and the 5 pm happy hour was special fun.  We’ll be back!

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!

Great room, a little pricy but it was season in Key West.

The room was perfect… large, clean, comfy bed and nice bathroom.  It was a perfect mix of historic key west charm, and modern amenities.  The hotels location is absolutely perfect.  So close to Duval Street and all the fun and excitment, yet far enough away to escape and relax in peace.  All in all it was a fantastic stay and I would definitely consider staying there again

Hi

There were 5 of us in three rooms.  The rooms were small but in good condition. The staff was  very helpful and friendly.

We had one night at the Chelsea and we were pleased. The “Irish” welcome by Kevin was pleasant and fun.  The room was basic and the pool area inviting for an AM cup of coffee. Centrally located to all we wanted to do and experience.

My wife and I were guests at the Cypress House and we were extremely pleased with everything from the first greeting with Christopher to our final goodbye with a young lady (with glasses — I do not know her name).  We were treated kindly every time we visited with your staff and were made to feel at home.  I would whole-heartedly recommend your properties and have already done so.  Thanks for making our three-day stay a memorable and relaxing one.  While I’m mentioning people I have  to also give a positive comment to Scott too who helped us extend  our stay by a night because we found this so well.

My wife and I came down Feb 7-10 2013 for a wedding, and stayed in a economy queen room @ the Merlin Guesthouse. The front desk personnel were all nice and accommodating and allowed us to check in early. We booked the economy queen because we didn’t plan on spending much time in our room. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and it was located only a block from Duval st.  We saw most of the rooms available @ the Merlin due to our large wedding party renting the place out. All of them were nice and modern I heard no complaints from anyone. Complimentary breakfast out by the pool was nice each morning and a wonderful way to wake up mingling with everyone. Coffee was strong just the way I like it. All in all we loved the Merlin Guesthouse, and as first timers we fell in love with key west! I have already booked our anniversary flights to come back in May, and we plan on staying @ the Merlin or one of the many other Historic Key West Inns.  Thanks again for a wonderful experience!

My husband and I have visited Key West many times and this was our first visit to the Cypress House.  The convenience to Duval Street and Mallory Square was great.  We were there to attend a wedding at the Audubon House.  We stayed in the King Deluxe Room in the main house on the third floor.  The room was very comfortable and spacious.  One suggestion we would have is if the grout in the shower and bathroom could be bleached.  We know the bathroom was clean, but the fact that the grout is stained in the shower and on the floor does not present well.

Breakfast at the pool was very relaxing and a great way to start the day.

We would definitely look to stay with you again.

This was my first visit to Key West.  I stayed at the Chelsea House.  I would recommend this inn  to everyone.  The rooms are comfortable and the staff was very helpful.  My husband was not able to make the trip so he called the Chelsea to ask their help to have flowers delivered to my room.  He said they were so very helpful and great to deal with.

I will be back.
