Find 1 Star Hotels in Florida Keys
Experiencing the best of the Florida Keys doesn’t have to put a huge dent in your wallet. If you’re visiting this part of the world on a budget, you can choose from a range of low-priced hotels, motels and guesthouses, even in the most popular tourist areas such as Key West and Marathon.
For added value, choose one of the one-star Florida Keys hotels that offers lots of extras, like free parking and free WiFi, at no additional cost.
The ultimate Florida Keys activity is soaking up the sunshine. Luckily, it’s rare to find lodgings in the Florida Keys that don’t make the most of the balmy year-round weather. Even one-star hotels usually have outdoor pools and sun terraces that you can use for free. And, if you’re lucky, you can bag a room in a one-star hotel that has its own beach access too.
Free Things to See and Do in the Florida Keys
Much of the magic of the Florida Keys is underwater, so pack your snorkelling gear and explore it for free. Choose a one-star hotel in Marathon and you can head to its charming Sombrero Beach. This small but perfectly formed stretch of white sand has shallow waters for snorkelling, shady spots for picnicking and a park for kids, of all of which can be used at no cost. Visit during the breeding season for loggerhead turtles, between May and October, and look for freshly laid turtle eggs along the Sombrero Beach sand.
You’ll find loads of things to do in Key West that don’t cost a thing. There is the famous nightly Sunset Celebration in Mallory Square, for starters. And a colourful buoy marking the US’s Southernmost Point is a very popular – and free – photo opportunity. You can wander down side streets to discover historic neighbourhoods and pastel-coloured conch houses, or explore the 19th-century cemetery, famed for its tongue-in-cheek epitaphs. You don’t have to pay through the nose for entertainment in Florida Keys either. There is live music in the bars most nights of the week.
