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. Sure, it lacks La Mer's direct beach access, but The Mermaid & The Alligator is just three blocks from popular Duval Street. 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.
