The Mermaid and the Alligator Bed and Breakfast

The Mermaid and the Alligator

Marble Shower Bath Royal Poinciana Retreat Garden Room Panoramic Sun Deck Conch Cottage Caribbean Queen Audubon Suite
This unique BnB offers a full breakfast of course, but it much more than just a bed or another place to stay. Known as your home away from home in Key West Florida, the Mermaid has an ambiance and provide a comfort not found in many competing accommodations. Special features abound in the decor and styling of this very special lodging, as well as complimentary wine as you gather with other guests to plan an evening on the town. The aspects that make this bed and breakfast stand out from the others continue as you enter your guestroom.

The romantic suites are perfect for couples on their honeymoon or weekend getaway. The rooms are private and individually styled. You won't find the average corporate cookie cutter suite here. With verandas and amenities that give you comfort and space, you'll soon realize this is no ordinary hotel room. The plunge pool is heated year round and the place to relax on property.


Mermaid and the Alligator is an ideal vacation destination in Key West. I found the Inn very agreeable during my two day, three night stay earlier this summer. Hotel concierge was impeccably friendly and made sure I had the most relaxing experience possible. My choice of room was the "Caribbean Queen" a suite that included a private balcony.

Accommodations provided include highs-speed wireless internet access, daily complimentary breakfast, and a wonderful pool. Perhaps the most attractive features of the facilities are the gorgeous gardens and patios. I loved relaxing out there at night.

I plan on returning to Mermaid and the Alligator for my three year anniversary during the upcoming spring. I may get married again and renew my vowes at the La Mer and Dewey House just down at the end of Duval st if I can't find a vacancy to stay there. This place does have some world class small inns that are close by or right on the oceanfront.
