Accommodation Advice please...

Looking for clean, affordable, accommodations within walking distance to restaurants & night life in Key West. Does one need to rent a car or can they get to most places by foot, taxi etc.?

You don't need a car if you stay in Old Town. Everything is within about a square mile.

Key West hotels are expensive. Some more affordable choices in Old Town are Blue Marlin or Best Western Hibiscus. There are also lots of B&Bs. Some more affordable ones include The Angelina, Caribbean House, and Wicker House.

Take a look at The Banyan Resort. It's right in Old Town so no need for a car. It's a block and a half off Duval so close enough to the action without being too close.

Look at the Curry Mansion Inn for a great B&B right in the action of old town. No need for a car to get around, but if you have one this is a B&B that offers off street parking.

The rates can vary by high season, low season, even shoulder season, and, God forbid, during one of the many special weeks. When are you going? Are your dates set?

I would also suggest a B&B. We are partial to Key West Harbor Inn for the location and size of the pool. Marrero's also has a good pool but we haven't stayed there since the management change. A lot of pools in Key West are "dipping pools" that are the size of a hot tub. If a pool is important to you then please be sure you check photos. The other B&Bs mentioned here are great suggestions as well. Hotels in KW are crazy over priced in my opinion. We have stayed at the Best Western during one of the special times that pjk mentioned because our B&B did not have availability for our last night. It is just like any other Best Western (not in a bad way, just not the cozy B&B feel) and is perfect if you are wanting a hotel feel on a budget.

You do not need a car in key west if you are staying near Duval. You can also rent bikes too. Last year we stayed at the Southernmost Inn ( NOT to be confused with the Southernmost Beach Resort). It was a perfect location and they had free breakfast and a bar. 1 block from the public beach, and a quick walk to Mallory Square.

Also, we flew into miami, rented a car in miami and drove down to key west. We dropped the car at the airport. Saved us parking fees and car rental fees. We didn't need the car at all, but we also didnt venture out of key west.

This year we are staying at the Southernmost Beach resort, can't wait. Would have done the Inn again but I got a deal at southernmost :-)
