estancia corta pero muy agradable

4.0 on February 12, 2016

El hotel es muy bonito, cuidado y con una zona de piscina muy agradable. La habitación pequeña pero funcional, y muy limpia. La relación calidad-precio con los precios tan elevados de key west, es muy buena. Lo recomiendo.

Weekend getaway

My wife and I wanted to get away for a weekend in February. We decided on the Palms based on reviews and it was a charming place to stay. Clean and quiet and convenient walking distance to Duvall. It's a great value and highly recommended!

Nice pricey place with little parking

3.6 on February 07, 2016

The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The continental breakfast by the pool was relaxing and good. It was a little pricey for as far away from everything that it is. There are maybe 6 parallel parking spots in front of the hotel and if you don't get one of those spots, good luck in finding another spot. Once you find a spot, you won't want to use your car again until you are ready to check out. So yes, walking it is. Besides the price and the parking, it is a nice place to stay.

The management and staff members were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and serviced every day, the breakfast by the pool was wonderful and we had parking available. Over all a good experience.

Great location! Lovely rooms!

Super positive experience at The Palms. We got in late and ended-up with a room upgrade free of charge! Service was fantastic. And our room was beautiful- living room with spiral staircase to a lofted bedroom. Only downside: breakfast was pretty standard, but this did not detract from our stay.

Convenient, clean, great service

Dan and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make certain our stay was pleasant. Would definitely go back!

Got what I paid for

The site was beautiful and front desk was very helpful with answering our questions. House keeping came by and even when we didn't need anything made sure to check on us. Everyone was overall friendly and welcoming. The room was a bit musty and the Vent only blew cold air so the nights that were cold, we had no heat.

A pleasant surprise

4.4 on January 24, 2016

Our 4 night stay at the Palms was very enjoyable. The staff was responsive, personable, helpful, and very courteous. The breakfast was basic but well done and all the support staff was wonderful. The location is perfect, close enough to the action but far enough away for peace and quiet. If we ever return to Key West we will stay at the Palms again and recommend it to our friends going there.
