We stayed in the room posted in the above picture and we absolutely loved the experience. Clean, well furnished and right in the middle of town. Its 1 block away from Duval Street so you don't hear the craziness at all. They have a great dipping pool and serve a super continental breakfast. Staff are lovely. Book this guest house... More

This place is astounding and beautiful. Reasonably priced, the staff are polite and happy. I would highly recommend staying here. You're in Old Town Key West so it's off the heavy occupied main streets but so close to everything you can walk and enjoy the old time houses and scenery. There are many trees to keep you shaded during your... More

The rooms are very comfortable and the staff super friendly. Good breakfast every morning and convenient location with walking distances to most attractions. We got an upgrade on a busy holiday weekend. We will definitely come back!

I booked the 2 Bedroom Cottage for my wife, myself and 2 friends. This place was perfect. There was only one bathroom but it was available to the whole cottage without having to go into either bedroom, which was perfect. When coming back in the future we will definitely book this place again.

Freindly staff. Well maintained property. Delightful garden, pool, breakfast area. We stayed in a 2 bedroom house on the property that was large and had private parking. Nice location. Walking distance to many of the places we like to visit while in Key West. Would go again !

We arrived in Key West a little late and were still looking for a place to stay, The rate was reasonable here, so that is what we chose. The rooms were very "cozy" bu well enough appointed and a very comfy bed and sleep. The desk staff was very helpful and answered a couple of questions for us. The breakfast... More

Absolutely loved our stay here. Linda treated us so well. We got a free upgrade to a suite, which was excellent. Very modern, very clean. Breakfast was nice, as was the pool. Parking lot is tucked away in back, down a side street, hard to find if you don't know where it is. Will definitely be back.

This was my first visit to Key West, so I didn't know what to expect. Merlin is one block off of Duval, so, if you're into that scene but don't won't to be bothered by the crowds, then the Merlin location is ideal. As far as accommodations go, Merlin was OK. Nothing bad - nothing spectacular. It was clean -... More
