Was an amazing way to begin our Annual Keys Vacation!

My friends and I planned a girls get away prior to our weeklong family vacation in Key West. My friend and I stayed here the Friday evening before and were so pleased with the room, staff and ambiance the hotel offered. The parking was great, pool was clean and breakfast was beautifully presented and fresh. I will be making reservations again to stay here. We loved the location, pool, room and hotel!

Warm and Cozy B&B

Loved our stay. Good breakfast, nice personnel and all very clean.

An economically priced quiet and quaint retreat from the nearby bustle of Key West.

I enjoyed my stay at this B&B. It is centrally located and many of the points of interests are within walking distance. I will definitely consider this place again for my next visit to Key West.

Happy with The Palms

Great place

We took the ferry from Fort Myers which arrives at 12, and walked 8 blocks south to the bed and breakfast. Our room was clean so we were able to check in early and put our bags in our room and rest. When we entered the room it was bright and cheery, clean with flat screen tv and quiet ac and a king size bed. The pool was clean and refreshing. breakfast in the morning was adequate, not a full breakfast but the continental offered cereal, and waffles and pancakes to reheat. We loved our stay at The Palms Hotel.

One night stay

My husband and I went to Key West for a short get away. We stayed in the Ash Cottage. It was great! Sort of secluded and quiet, very roomy by Key West standards. We also had our own front porch to enjoy the mornings and evenings on. The pool was large (again, by Key West B&B standards) and crystal clear. The complimentary breakfast was sufficient; well stocked and a decent assortment of breakfast foods. Location was great for us as we were close to Fausto's, 5 Brothers Deli, Seven Fish, etc. Another plus was onsite parking. We will definitely stay there again.

Great Place to Stay!

My husband and I booked The Palms Hotel online and we were expecting a normal room but instead we were in a suite with 1 bedroom 1.5 bathrooms, kitchen complete with everything you need besides a can opener, microwave, sink, and everything to do dishes, 2 televisions, and since we were in the back we got a little patio too. The Palms hotel is a great value because we were comparing other hotels in the Key West area and The Palms was the only hotel that offered free breakfast in our price range. The Palms also rents out bicyles so you don't have to walk or drive in Key West. We left our car parked until we left Key West. The bicyles given to us were amazing and very well kept. When we arrived one of the A/C units was blowing warm air and I went to see if they could come look at it and they attended to the problem right away with the A/C unit being replaced in less than 30 minutes. I will definatly return to The Palms Hotel when I come back to Key West! Thank you to all the staff at The Palms Hotel!

A great place to stay.

I recently stayed in the Palms Hotel during my first ever trip to Key West and I must say, I had an excellent experience. Ben, the front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. When I first arrived, the A/C in my room did not work. After a couple unsuccessful attempts to fix it, they upgraded me to a larger room for the same cost. The poolside continental breakfast was more than sufficient to start the day (especially for free). I certainly have no complaints and would gladly stay there again.
