This hotel has everything you need to enjoy Key West. First is location. Its located one block off Duval Street. Very Quiet. There is a few Scooter rental stores within a block so that is very convenient. Easy access from airport, 10 minutes away.
Next is the hotel itself. We have stayed there quite a few times now and the rooms are all in Great shape. Fresh, no smell and look like they have been freshly remodeled every time we have stayed. They all have AC in them and it works really, really well. They have a Pool, looks good but have never gone in. Their grounds are kept in great shape and the included Breakfast is good, Coffee, OJ, Cereal, Local Bagels, Toast, Fruit and Ham/Cheese thingy’s.
Security is monitored by a Resident Cat named Jordan Del Gato. (Facebook him) He is a friendly sort and can be found making his rounds at night between rooms and the pool area. Think of him as the Old bank security guard sleeping in his chair in a corner.
The Staff, Front Desk and Maids are all very, very friendly and helpful.
The only issue with the Merlin Guesthouse is street parking and rooms are not cheap. Especially the ones we get.( king size room) It can be tough to find a spot. So if you stay, don’t rent a car use a scooter and if you do have a car park it and get a scooter.
The price is in line with every other Inn or Hotel and not as high as the Fancy Hotel chains. We usually get the biggest room we can because we do spend more time in there than say if we were in New York.
So you can find Better, there are a lot of worse places but if the last thing you want to worry about in Key West is your room, Location, Breakfast and Security try the Merlin Guesthouse. You will also love it.
