Need suggestions!!

My boyfriend and I are planning a vacation to Key West. We are in out early thirties and love any water sport/activity as well as just relaxing and enjoying a beer and local cuisine. We are driving from Miami to Key West and are planning on stopping for the night in Marathon (Sunday March 4th). Does anyone have a recommendations on where to stay? I would prefer nothing too expensive as we are only staying one night. Any suggestions for dinner or activities? Our flight lands in Miami at noon and then we will start driving.

Check out Continental Inn in Key Colony Beach, White Sands Inn (marathon on Grassy key) and Sea Dell. Takes right at two hours with no stops, but I highly suggest stopping. Go to the "florida Keys" forum rather then just Marathon, and look at the right hand column for links to previous questions of where to stop. Make reservations asap. That's a busy week.

The Holiday Inn is newly remodeled and not right on the ocean so may be a little less expensive. As bluewater suggested there are lots of great places to stop at on the way to Marathon.

Was going to say HI express too, the reviews are good and it's reasonably priced. We are about the same age and booked for Marathon for 4 nights in May here as the rate was very good.

For dinner, drinks, apps or whatever, definitely try Sparky's Landing in Key Colony Beach -- really great place.
