Parking is very limited in Key West because cars were never the main form of transportation in the laid back "island life" of this small, but very popular city. We recommend that guests enjoy Key West by bicycle just like the locals. Many guests prefer to take a taxi from the airport and then get a bicycle at Parrot Key Resort. Resort parking is limited at our property. We have several parking arrangements at the resort, but please understand that the parking can sometimes fill up quickly. If you have concerns, please speak with your front desk agent at check-in.
