Spending our last days and night in Key Largo, we partnered with the Florida Keys & Key West CVB (on a media trip/vacation) with them arranging our stay at the Bayside Inn. I'd never been and hadn't heard of it prior, but was pleasantly surprised by what we found.
It reminded me of my previous stay in Key Largo, 15 years ago, and the home I rent for a few weeks. That "old Florida" charm with an older setting, combined with Largo's classic old school restful beauty, and a homy feel.
We were given one of two "Suites" overlooking the water. The main building is a traditional hotel look and feel, but I cannot speak to the rooms, while ours was an apartment like setting with a living room area with additional bed able to be pulled down for more sleeping. There is a dining area and small kitchen. Additionally, a bedroom, bathroom and porch overlooking the pool and Florida Bay. A wonderful setting for sunsets and dinner.
Set near John Pennicamp, Diver's Direct and all of Key Largo's offerings, you're in an ideal setting for getting the most of your vacation. There is shopping right nearby for in-room cooking, plus restaurants you can either eat at or do as we did, bring back to the room and eat on the porch overlooking the water. We were even entertained by the next door bar as the singer was decent, but we particularly enjoyed "Key Largo" as we ate. The music ends at an early enough hour, but we were stunned at how little we could hear it in the suite.
This is an ideal location to settle in for a longer stay and feel like you've got a home base. Or for an overnight to just enjoy a little old school Florida. Many of those staying appeared to be outdoorsy, a main stay here in Key Largo, so diving, fishing and the like are popular with those staying.
I think what blew us away was the bed, one of the most comfortable beds I've ever had in a hotel room. I slept comfortably and soundly.
We will certainly look at Bayside Inn for any future visits, but having stayed in the suite, I think we'd try to make that our room of choice as it was ideal.
