The Mermaid & The Alligator
Ranked #5 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 August 2017 via mobile

This was our first trip to Key West and we were looking for a romantic way to do it. We searched online and found The Mermaid & The Alligator amongst the numerous B&B's. The price, location, and amenities met our needs and we booked it online. We arrived approximately an hour early and were welcomed in as part of the family. We were given a tour of the house and grounds; and then ideas on where things were such as good restaurants and attractions. From that point on we truly enjoyed every minute we were there. The staff was attentive and very helpful, including making reservations and insuring our stay was excellent. The garden was beautiful and a great way to take in breakfast each morning; which alternated between savory and sweet. The garden also provided a location for us to store our bikes (we highly recommend renting or bringing your own, as we parked the car and used our bikes to get around everywhere). The accommodations in our room were comfortable and private. I could keep going on about everything we liked about this B&B; however, you'll have to just book your own stay to find out the rest.

I loved this place, it reminded me of staying at your favorite Aunt's house with the homey feel but also getting spoiled every day. The feeling of being somewhere special and getting treated special as well. Love the rooms, the gardens, atmosphere and the staff. I have mention the Poppyseed Waffles, homemade, all the food was 4 star. I like that there are no TV 's in the rooms it helps you get engaged with the Keys and turn off the rest of the world. Love Love Love this place.

This is a well-run B&B with a great staff and excellent location! Highly recommend it. We spent 5 days there in the summer, and especially enjoyed the deck/pool/patio area.....like living in your very own rain forest! Very relaxing, and the staff was extremely helpful & knowledgeable.

Room Tip: bikes are a great way to get around. Staff can make arrangements.

Located in a 1902 Victorian house with jungle like gardens in back where you have breakfast outside . Each room is different and lovely. We had the Audubon room with access out French doors to the garden, breakfast and the small pool/hot tub. If you check on line you can find good pictures of each room. The breakfasts were quite good, the first morning it was a quiche, the second day ricotta pancakes and the last day it was a frittata. It's located within walking distance to all the action on Duval street. Oh, they also have free parking , we didn't move our car until the day we left Key West. The hosts are very helpful and pleasant.
