I thought for a second I shouldn't write this review, however, I can't keep this big secret any longer. The Mermaid & the Alligator is by far the best B&B anyone could ask for. My husband and I discovered it the second time we visited Key West and are forever committed. We've briefly contemplated staying elsewhere but quickly realized what a mistake that would be. The rooms are amazing, the breakfast is served every morning by the owners, and their lovable short-haired retreiver, Havana, is never far away. I've taken numerous pictures of the gardens behind the house but they never seem to do it justice. The birds are in cages amongst the trees and plants and play sweet songs throughout the day. The best part about the inn is coming back to it at the end of a long day on Duval street, dipping into the pool and having a "couple" glasses of wine at wine hour. It's 5 O'clock somewhere! For B&B beginners, regulars, and critics this is, without a doubt, the place to be.
