SMOB or Galleon Resort???

We have never been to Key West before and are trying to decide between staying at SMOB or the Galleon Resort. Anyone want to give us some advice?? We are coming the second week in February! Thanks!!

Would you prefer the quieter end of Duval St or the busier end? SMOB puts you on the quieter side of the island. Galleon puts you right on the bight area closer to some of our favorite spots.

I like the location of the Galleon better. You can walk out the side entrance, cross the street and you are pretty much at Alonzo's Oyster Bar which has one of the best happy hours in Key West - all of the drinks and appitizers are half priced. Then you come to the Boathouse, Conch Republic Seafood Co., the Schooner Wharf bar, Turtle Kraals, and the Half Shell Raw Bar. You are a block and a half off Duval Street. And close to most of the snorkel trips or sunset sails.

SMOB is a resort, Galleon is a timeshare. Something to consider depending on the level of service you would like. Also, read the reviews.

I would choose The Galleon, if you don't care about daily maid service and want a full kitchen, washer & dryer in your room etc. Love the location, and views also.

We loved the Galleon, except that the pool was too crowded doing the day. yes, it is a timeshare property so you don't get the great treament like a good hotel, but the location is amazing. and the sunset are great, especialy from the rooftop (kinda a hidden gem/secret).
