I'm making a general post since some folks may be interested. I hardly ever read my email on this account and there was an old one in there from last month inquiring about cheap rooms for Tradewinds. Here's a very short list of places I know of around here. And remember to haggle any place. Despite what they may tell you it is NOT high season here during Tradewinds.
I haven't researched their room rates, but these are local mom and pop places you might not know about:

Key Lantern
Drop Anchor
Harbor Lights
Tavernier Inn

If any other locals know of some little spots please post in this thread.

It is a few miles south (20) from Founder's Park, but Sunset Inn & BlueFin on Islamorada is way cheaper. I've stayed there for a week and will go again next week. This is just across the highway from the Islander.

I'm trying to find the relative distance from some of these places to Founders Park, on exactly which Key (or what mile marker) is Founders Park located?

Thanks.

Put the following into a Google search "founders park, islamorada fl mile marker" and you'll have your answer.
