My wife and I needed a quick R&R mini vacation. Having gone to Key West many times in the past we enjoy staying in guest houses vs the the big box hotels. Having stayed at Chelsea House a couple of times in the past, ( which was excellent as well) we decided to stay at the Merlin Guesthouse this time. We have passed it many times on our walk to Duval Street.
The Merlin was perfect from check in to check out. The staff was outstanding from Kenneth to the housekeepers. They were all accommodating. The location was perfect for walking to Duval Street. And surrounding area for restaurants.
Area of improvement I would suggest is blackout curtains in the room (we were in rm 16) and there were lights coming in from all sides. The small refrigerator did not appear to work that well, but since we had a cooler it was not an issue. Bathroom was tight, but it is an old historical bldg. Again no worries.
We will definitely stay again. In fact our daughter is going down to KW in a few weeks and based on our recommendation is staying at another of the Historic Key West Inns, the Key Lime Inn.
Thank you for a nice time in Key West.By: Steven Brotzky June 24, 2014
