Had a great experience at the Merlin Guesthouse on our 10 year wedding anniversary!! Staff was very attentive to our needs. Jordan, the guesthouse cat, was really cool too! Great, central location. We will stay there again in the future :)

My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay. The room was small, but very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the continental breakfast and pool with the jets. While on the property you you felt very secluded and relaxed and then once you walked out you were 1 block from Duval Street where all the action was. That gave you the best of both worlds. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone staying in Key West.

Room Tip: Room 10 had a very nice deck outside with a few tables that were shared with 3 other rooms. It was...

First room AC was broken but we were promptly moved to another room. It is very quiet and laid back. You can sleep in, breakfast is available in a small garden area. Location is very close to the main streets of town. We walked everywhere. On the last day we were allowed to leave our luggage in the office while waiting for the ferry boarding time. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. We will stay there again.

A block off duval..with some parking in and around the hotel for those that drive in..
We have stayed in two different suites and one of the small captains rooms. All were comfortable and clean. Service was very pleasant and attentive..the pool is nestled in a garden central to all the rooms..the price is line with the quality and the location at the 800 block makes this a quieter location while still being in the heart of all the fun

Our room was not large but it was spotless, crisp white sheets and comfortable bed and pillows. Outdoor breakfast was relaxing - plenty of good coffee and numerous breakfast choices. The pool is small but it has jets and is soooo relaxing after a day of bike riding/sight seeing in Key West. The poinciana tree overhung the patio and it was in full glorious bloom. The staff could not have been more helpful, charming and easy-going. And there's a hammock in the backyard area! Location is an easy walk to Duvall Street and all in all, Merlin met our expectations for a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Less expensive, smaller rooms are on the front.

This place is transporting! Lush gardens keep it quiet and make it feel special. It is parallel to Duvall by 2 blocks so it is quiet. You can walk everywhere. We stayed in room 11 which is in the middle of the complex. There are some rooms that face the street, these might not have been as quiet. That being said, this street is not a main drag so it's not too busy compared to other places we saw. We would go here again.

I had a very pleasant stay at the Merlin with some friends in January. We booked one of the roomy guesthouses, which had a full kitchen, dining area, two bedrooms and a living room. We very much enjoyed the outdoor spaces with their lush foliage, pool area, hammock and porch swing. The hotel is operated by very helpful, friendly staffers and the breakfast had lots of tasty options. It was the perfect low-key spot for us just a few blocks from the clamor of Duval Street.

Room Tip: If you are part of a group of three or more, opt for one of the large guesthouses. The kitchen is sp...
