We were in the Treetop Suite, private and beautiful. We can't even begin to tell you how we felt like we were in The garden of Eden with all the gorgeous foliage and palm trees around us. Geri does a wonderful job of hosting and preparing a delicous breakfast. We met many wonderful people including Paul, Dean, Geri, and Rebecca.... More

Everyday we had a different homemade breakfast, afternoon snack and wine. The rooms were delightful, had every creature comfort you could need. If... More

Words are inadequate to describe The Mermaid & The Alligator! The owners have created a quiet paradise within a couple of blocks of Duval Street. I found this Inn on line and it is as beautiful as the pictures portray. Geri is a wonderful hostess who knows all guests by name. We stayed in the sun room which was wonderfully... More

We have stayed three times now. I have left two other reviews. We love the Bamboo room. It is a free standing bungalow with a large porch. So nice to sit out and relax at night and early morning. We love to invite the great people we meet to come over for a visit. The high standards we have come... More

This was our first trip to Key West and The Mermaid and the Alligator B&B was better than we could have imagined. We stayed in the Caribbean Suite with it's beautiful wraparound porch.... so relaxing. Breakfast was great, fruit and muffins(really good) then a hot entree whether it be quiche, frittata, belgian waffles or pancakes all magnificent. A special thanks... More

The Mermaid & The Alligator is an amazing B&B in Key West! It is decorated beautifully and so clean. I am an OCD neat freak and they went above and beyond every day to tidy the rooms and keep the floors shining bright. The atmosphere is peaceful but laid back and the owners are around to answer questions and recommend... More

The Mermaid and Alligator was better than we could have imagined. Walking distance to everything, beautiful, relaxing bed and breakfast, great service and value. Thanks to Geri who arranged our bike rentals, dinner reservations, boat trip, evening show and made our stay extra special.

My husband and I stayed here five nights in the Caribbean Queen room. The room and house are absolutely beautiful and charming, wonderful if you love century homes like we do! Every morning the staff serves a hot, delicious breakfast by the pool. The concierge Geri was SO helpful with making reservations for us, and recommending various restaurants and site-seeing... More
