Florida Keys in March, How To Beat The Minimum of Two Nights
« on: February 11, 2013, 02:24:43 pm »
First time cycling the keys in March and plan to stay in B&B's, hotel  or motel versus the camping route but are finding it difficult  to keep moving on everyday due to two night minmums required. Does anyone know of lodging along the way that might work for only one night? We're two couples willing to take 1 or 2 rooms if need be and can be flexible where we stop.  Thanks.

I traveled that way with one other cyclist last year and don't remember having this problem. We had a friend provide lodgings in Key West, so we only stayed one night along the keys. It was pricey, I thought, but we saved on other nights, so . . . .  I'm including our pre-keys stay in Homestead fyi. I don't know if you're at all amenable to hostels; but, this is an extraordinary one that I would love to visit again. The beds are just plain hostel stuff -- many bunk-beds in a room. But, much to like in the grounds and company. We had a group-created meal that was just great.
