Nice place for the price.

I would recommend staying here. You can spend more and get something bigger/nicer/newer/etc., but for the price, I was very pleased.

Conveniently located with pleasant Key West vibe.

Pros: Very Key West vibe to this simple, but comfortable guest house.
Location: It's just a one block walk to the center of Duval Street.
If you want to be near Duval Street and centrally located in town, and stay at a very reasonable price, then the Merlin Guesthouse is as good as it gets. The rooms are quite comfortable and should all be remodeled by the time this appears (they were mostly finished when we stayed there in December 2014). Continental breakfast by the pool was adequate as well.
