My wife and I had never been to Key West before but after the experience we had at the Merlin Guesthouse we are DEFINITELY coming back!

The staff were amazing (Linda at the front desk was very sweet), the room was perfect and the relaxation we achieved laying by the pool was top notch! And they even have an amazing mascot/pet/inn cat named Jordan del Gato, who we are pretty sure is Ernest Hemingway reincarnated.

Do yourself a favor and stay here when in Key West.

Everyone at the front desk was more than lovely. They helped with any questions we had, gave us plenty of places to go to and were always friendly. They even called us to let us know we had left some things in the room after checkout and held it for us at the front desk. The rooms were beautiful and the hotel itself is very nice. I was very pleased with this hotel stay and would most definitely stay at the Key Lime Inn again.

We spent 5 days here and were extremely pleased. Our guest room was in the main ‘Conch Mansion’ house and was huge, romantic and tastefully decorated. Chris & Scott were very knowledgeable and made you feel like family. Actually, all of the employees here did that too. Breakfast by the pool is different every morning with a good variety. The nightly social hour and snacks are different each day and very tasty. The cocktails change daily–sangria, rum punch, margarita’s, we had them all!  Even though you are close to Duval, it is very quiet and peaceful. We also really loved the Christmas decorations, it felt like we were in a charming novel. We will definitely be back and recommend it to our friends.

My husband, brother and sister-in-law stayed in the 2bedroom guest cottage (#19) for an overnight in early December.

The unit was extremely clean, spacious, quiet, and comfortable.  The little outdoor patio area was a plus, as was the quick walk to Duval St.

Our check-in and check-out was efficient and pleasant.  The people who we spoke to gave us lots of information and help getting around.

The pool was a wonderful plus and we welcomed it after the walk from the Key West Express dock.

The continental breakfast was delicious!

We would come and stay again and would recommend  it to friends and family.

Thanks Merlin Guesthouse for a wonderful stay in Key West!

We stayed in room 2 in the beautiful ‘grand mansion’ house located on the first floor. It is a very large room with a nice bath that has a walk in shower and historic stained-glass window. The room has plenty of storage and one wall has the most impressive built in bookshelf.

Breakfast is by the pool and an afternoon social are included with the room. Breakfast had a hot selection that changed each day. We both liked the huge marble top table in the kitchen where they place the breakfast items. The afternoon social had a drink of the day and varied appetizers.

Dennis, Chris and the staff work hard to please everyone and they were very helpful and made sure all your needs are met. They helped us rent bikes which we used to get all around the island.

This hotel has a great location-close to Duval St, Mallory Square and many great restaurants. At night it’s quiet enough that you think you’re far away from the nightlife.

We would definitely stay here again.

Hi,

Really enjoyed our stay at the Key Lime. We were in room 6.

+ location, breakfast by the pool, staff were excellent and very helpful

- internet signal didn’t reach room 6, had to go to the pool area to connect and next door to their sister hotel the Chelsea House. Wifi that I used there was faster than the Key Lime signal! Also, our room was a little dark with only one window which was over shadowed by the outside staircase.

We recently stayed at the Albury Court on a last minute trip. We were pleased with the professionalism of the staff, the cleanliness of the room, and the proximity to all of the attractions. We have stayed at the Key Lime Inn a couple years ago and had such a great experience! Both of these inns are consistent for value and cleanliness. We will continue to book future trips to Key West at one of their Historic Key West Inns.

Considering that you are two blocks from Duval street, the Cypress House is a peaceful place. The staff was very friendly, had great suggestions on where to go in the city and gave us great recommendations for restaurants too. We really enjoyed breakfast by the pool, as well as, the Liming cocktails every evening. We talked with a lot of the other guests and they were having a fun time too. Can’t wait for our next visit.

We chose the Cypress House based on the reviews we read. Although our visit was cut short due to a death in our family, the time we spent was quite enjoyable. From the greeting at the front desk at check-in to our unexpected early departure, everyone at Cypress House was friendly and accommodating. Special kudos to Danielle who not only provided a delicious breakfast but also assisted in a room change after a first no-sleep night in Room 16. There was nothing she could do about the traffic noise on the street, unruly pedestrians or boisterous next room guests but she could switch us to a quieter inner room. We appreciated her courteous response and were very pleased with Room 7 for our second night.  This was not our first visit to Key West but we discovered new culinary venues as your afternoon cocktail hour around the pool inspired camaraderie among the guests. (Our Thanksgiving dinner was at the recommended Square One Restaurant – excellent!)  Since our departure, we’ve shared the experience with several of our friends and are now talking of returning to Key West in January with another couple. Thank you for a delightful stay and we hope to visit again soon.

Rooms where clean and well maintained. The staff where very friendly and knowledgeable as to what was happening in town during my stay. Located just a few blocks from Duval St. The outside grounds where quiet and a perfect place to relax or take a peaceful swim. I have stayed here before and will be coming back. Would highly recommend this hotel to my friends and those coming to visit Key West for the first time.
