Stepping Back in Time at The Mermaid Inn, Rye (UK

Save: The Mermaid & The Alligator, Key West This adults-only bed-and-breakfast, with just nine rooms, is also a four-pearl property — but rates are less than half the price of those at La Mer Hotel.

Plus, it serves a lovely breakfast as well as free wine hours, and it's home to a lush garden with a hammock and plunge pool.
