About Us

The Mermaid & The Alligator, Key West

Welcome to the casual elegance of a more relaxed age.  Our beautiful circa 1904 Victorian home is an exquisite example of grand Key West architecture.  Angled bay windows, sloping gables, spacious verandas, and a unique island-style tin roof make this home a Key West classic.  Our inn features nine distinctive guest rooms; each lovingly decorated blending tropical style with comfort and luxury.  Furnished with a sound therapy system, luxurious linens, wireless internet and peaceful surroundings, each room exudes an ambiance of calm and leisure.  Our complimentary breakfast is served poolside every morning, complete with freshly ground Costa Rican coffee, home baked muffins and delicious daily breakfast dish.

Located in the Historic District of Old Town Key West, and only two blocks away from the notorious Duval Street, the Inn is perfectly situated for those who enjoy exploring on foot or bicycle; and for those with a car, we offer complimentary parking. Known as a town rich in culture and history, our staff provides concierge services guiding you towards an unforgettable Key West experience.  And, when its time to wind down and get away from the fray, relax in our tropical gardens and cool off in the spa pool under our giant Royal Poinciana trees. 

During your stay at The Mermaid & The Alligator, our aim is to create a home away from home in a tranquil and historical Key West setting and help you discover the magical essence of our island city.
