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

Stayed during the week. Nice quaint place. Our cottage had a full kitchen, living room and dinette plus the master king bed in a separate room. Pool was perfect for relaxing. Staff was very friendly and only one block from Duval. If parking is necessary bring the smallest car you have.

If you're searching for a hotel in key west I would highly recommend the Merlin Guest House. My girlfriend and I have stayed there twice now and both times we were extremely happy with the hotel. Truth is I don't consider it a hotel, it's more of a bed and breakfast. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are clean... More

Loved our stay here! Very friendly & helpful staff. Clean and comfortable rooms with amenities. Outdoor breakfast by the pool and ice tea later on. Quaint and shady, a little retreat from the bustling Old Town. Beach, restaurants etc all very nearby. Really loved it here.

Stayed here for 2 nights in July. We stayed in the queen room which opens to the street. If you have a problem with noise when sleeping book a different room. You can hear every noise from street and the ac is very loud. Also try to avoid being placed in room 4. It's next to the room service room,... More

It was our first Trip to Key West and it was so memorable! We stay in the cottages at Merlin Guest House and were able to use the whole property. They were recently renovated and everything was top of the line! From the moment we arrived, the staff were very friendly and accommodating! The property is beautiful and a quit... More
