key west - where to stay

Help! Looking for a hotel in Key West for 4 nights in September. Don't want to spend too much, but would like to be on the beach -- is that possible? I have been reading that Key West is not really a place to go for beaches -- is this the case? If so, are any of the keys known for there beaches?

The Keys are really not known for or the place to go if you are looking for the nice Florida beaches -

Although Bahia Honda State Park near Marathon (some 50 miles or so from Key West) is one of the better of the few Keys beaches.

Suggest reviewing the Florida Keys and Key West forum topics and here are 2 useful web sites:



Regarding hotels, besides what's mentioned in the forums, you can use the Florida Keys hotels and Key West hotels link in the 'Browse' sidebar to the left while you wait for other replies.

Key West is not a Beach resort. The beaches are also very smelly at this time of year. Smathers beach is the biggest, but you are quite a ways from downtown if you stay there. Check out B & B options to get something nice, reasonably priced and close to or on Duval Street. Try Avalon B & B or Duval Gardens B & B. La Mer & Dewey house ar on South Beach, but are more $$$.
