This was the third time that my wife, Tracy, and I stayed at the Merlin Guesthouse. We like the coziness of the Merlin. The staff was responsive to our needs. Linda, Kenneth, and Lee were always able to help when we asked for help with a reservation for a cruise or to get some extra coffee. We spent a few afternoons lounging by the pool – the complimentary ice tea was a very nice extra touch!
We also like the Merlin’s location. We were just a short bike ride from wherever we wanted to go: Casa Marina, the beach at Zachary Taylor State Park, Fausto’s grocery, the old harbor, or Capt. Tony’s (for my band’s shows).
We could tell that the hotel had gotten some upgrades: new bathrooms, the ramp from the office up to the pool area, etc. And we appreciated the courtesy of being able to leave our bags in the office after check-out because we had a late flight out.
One small suggestion for rooms with a skylight over a bed. We hope that there will be a way to cover the skylight so we can sleep in a little later in the morning.
Thanks again, Merlin, for a great stay in Key West. We hope to see you again soon.
