Guest Reviews | Key West Hotel Reviews

Great family-friendly property. Located a block from upper Duval Street, it was a perfect location for me to bring my mother-in-law for the first time with my 11 year old son. Upon arrival, the staff at the Merlin Guesthouse provided everything we needed and they were always quick to help or provide a service whenever we asked.  We stayed Unit 21, the two-bedroom/1 bath cottage. It has a fully equipped kitchen with a full-size fridge, stove and microwave. The one bathroom was functional, but it would have been ideal to have an additional 1/2 bath in the unit. Things to know when selecting this unit; 1) Simonton St. can be noisy at times, so the bedroom closest to the street will hear the cars and the trash truck in the morning, 2) This is historical location, so it does have a historic, vintage look/feel and things may not work perfectly, but if it doesn’t, the staff is right there to repair everything ASAP, 3) This unit has one of the only parking spots “on-property”, which is great with the limited parking in the area, 4) The local cat, Jordan, is very sweet. We knew he was there and we brought some cat treats from home to share with him (don’t tell his parents!). He stopped by every morning for his daily treat. 5) Did I mention that the staff is awesome? If not, let me say it again. They are AWESOME! I would highly recommend this property to any family looking to stay in the middle of it all, with local friends in a comfortable, home-like environment. Thanks to all at the Merlin Guesthouse and I look forward to coming back with my husband the next time!
