A Solid 4 Star Experience


The Merlin Guesthouse was a perfect place for me to stay while I was in town for one of my best friend’s wedding in Key West.  Especially as I was traveling alone without family, I wanted a safe place, centrally located and warmly welcomed.  Even though I arrived after the 10pm check in time when your office was open, Kenneth was kind enough to offer to stay an extra 1/2 hour to check me in, hand me my key and show me my room.  The room was clean, quiet, cozy and soothing.  Breakfast the next morning was good assortment of strong coffee, cold orange juice, blueberry muffins, bagels/toast apples, and yogurt.  Perfect options for a lite breakfast to start the day.  The courtyard was beautiful and the tables and chairs were charming and comfortable.  The only thing to make this stay a 5 star was an improvement on the bed and pillows.  My bed had no support in the mattress and the pillows were very thin and uncomfortable.  By the second night, my back was aching as much from all the walking and wedding prep as the no support in the bed.  With a better mattress and fluffier pillows, this would’ve been a 5 star rating.  Staff were great, place was clean, location was ideal and easy to get to everywhere with a short walk, air conditioning and tv a plus, and felt like a very “historic” key west property.  Worth another visit if I can ensure a better mattress!!
