Key West Accomodations

We will be spending a few nights in Key West at the beginning of January. I have not made a hotel reservation yet, as I was hoping to "wing it" and get a last minute reservation (at a somewhat better price than the rack rate) and also most of the properties require 3 nights (we are staying 2).

Now I am having second thoughts, mainly because I am a planner!

I would love to try and stay at one of the inns such as the Gardens, Marquesa, Simonton Court. My dilemma is that there is a deal at the Ocean Key, for $250 for a jr. suite and I am thinking that I should take it.

Thoughts anyone??

Thanks!

There is very few times during the year where I would "wing it" in KW and January is not one of them. Make a reservation.

I'm having a hard time imagining prime properties in Key West having "last minute specials" in January! In fact, you may be out of luck getting in the nice places at all -- especially if over a weekend.

I'd say if this Ocean Key appeals to you and it is no more than the other places are advertising now, I'd go for it.

You should take the offer if it is still available.

To the extent that you can catch a special in Key West, and by "special" I mean find a place to stay at all, is if you can do a Monday night - Thursday night. Apparenly a lot of people drive down from Florida for long weekends and that's when rooms fill up. If you can manage a mid-week or a time that doesn't involve a Fri or Sat night, you might get lucky.

I'd grab the Ocean Key, too.
