Accommodations Guide and Vacation Travel Information about Key West
Key West is literally “the end of the road,” the last in the chain of islands south of mainland Florida. As such, it reflects the aura of Caribbean islands.
Because it attracts visitors from around the world, many national hotel/resort chains have properties on the island, offering every possible amenity. There are also independently-owned luxury resorts catering to the more affluent visitor.
But not all is luxury. Although there is no such thing as a “cheap motel” in Key West, there are guest houses, bed and breakfasts, inns, and small motels scattered throughout the island, some on the beach, others on or near renowned Duval Street, scene of Key West’s raucous nightlife.
Taxi service or car rental is easily available at the airport, and most of the large resorts have limos to pick up registered guests. Because the easiest mode of transportation is the bicycle, many hotels and motels have bicycles on the premises for use by their guests.
For those wishing to come on their boats, Key West and Stock Island marinas offer dockage for private vessels, and many prefer to live aboard their yachts.
Home to Pridefest and Womenfest, festivals for gays and lesbians, Key West offers several guest houses restricted to them—some for men, some for women, many others for either sex.
Vacation rentals are restricted to 28 days or more; there are rental agents and property managers in Key West to help with a rental for an extended stay. Just click on the type of accommodation you need for information that will guide you to the perfect one for you.
