Spring break 2013

Hi

I'm planning to spend three nights in Key West (12th - 14th March ) and read that this may be the same time as spring break. Hotels filled with gangs of kids having a wild time and partying I've read. I'm not sure if my planned dates would coincide with this but if they did is this what i could expect or is it over stated?

I think the Best Westerns are likely to be full of spring breakers, so prob best to avoid this trip. Not sure about your price range, but some of the more reasonably priced guest houses you could try are the Angelina Guest House, L'habitation and Papas Hideaway.

If price is not an issue, check the Gardens Hotel. It's a gorgeous property. Also, Tropical Inn and Heron house.

Check those out and call directly to be sure they aren't renting to spring breakers. One of those should work our great for you!

if you go for a B&B with a no spring breakers policy, or stick to ones with higher rooms rates (over $300 night) you could avoid their issues.

The more expensive places also tend to have fewer issues with noisy, partying adults.

Thanks for all the replies and advice. I might be able to book the Crown Plaza using Priority club points so may take this option as Orion-240 suggested using somewhere with higher room rates.

You really don't need to worry about spring breakers, but avoid anyone named Mike, Buster, JoeMass, or Andy!!!!

We will be in Key West from 3/17 - 3/21. It will be our first visit there. We got a lot of great bar & restaurant advise from this forum. Really looking forward to our stay.

We'll be there March 9-15. We are 30-somethings and went for SB last year, too. This will be our 3rd trip to KW, and we're staying in the same place for the 3rd time, the Key West BnB. They are GREAT, affordable, close, but not too close, to Duval, and very friendly. This year, we're bringing our BFFs from home to experience it for themselves. And the best part...all the kids are staying with the grandparents. We didn't have any problem at all with spring breakers. If anything, I think they are a riot to people watch. A couple of things we love doing while we are there...Ft. Zachary beach, kayaking with Danger Charters, eating at the local places, key lime pie martinis at the White Tarpon, museums, and bike riding to explore! I would recommend getting a map and somewhat committing old town to memory so you don't walk in circles after a night of too much fun, trying to find your hotel ;-)

Any room suggestions for the Casa Marina? Pictures of the property influenced our selection of the hotel. Feedback? We will be there for three days starting March 21st.
