The Key West TDC has been busy advertising and all the keys have been FULL for 2 months now and it's getting worse. The highway and downtown Key West is much busier than you've seen in at the World's.
Your only luck will come if they reduce the rates after Easter like they usually do.
Sandy beach, near Duval, great rate.......isn't going to happen unless you go through Travelocity or one of those travel websites.
Won't mention the name but the smallest motel with no pool but lots of noise and crummy rooms is now getting $290 a night and he turns people away.
If you are seriously looking for more info. you can email me.
Pat in Marathon
Marathon is choice #2, they want to be ON the beach, but we all know that aint happenin'. I personally prefer Marathon, and drive to Key West for evening activities, but then again, its nice to be able to stumble back to the room. If you know of something decent in Marathon that I should look into, let me know.

Marathon is great but a long cab ride from KW Finding one room for one night, no problem, we have 5 couples going. Everyone has a 3 night min unless it's last min. We need reservations for 5 rooms and don't want to wing it. Maybe we just do 3 nights in KW and boat around that area, I was just looking forward to bar hoping by boat, WickedWon and Tonto make it look appealing

Try the Southern Most Hotel on Key West. They have a real nice beach. We stayed there 2 years ago and it was great!

If you want the best top of the line Resort? Stay at the Wyndam Casa Marina. It's without a doubt the BEST place on the island. I've stayed at almost every place before.

The southernmost is a great place to stay
