Favorite Place to stay in the Keys

5 on May 02, 2016

Hands down, our favorite place to stay while visiting the Florida Keys. Not only do I look forward to coming down and visiting my home town, but I genuinely loving coming and staying at the Palms. I recommend it to all of my friends and family.

Relaxing Stay

This is a quiet little place with friendly staff and clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay and believe given the area, was priced appropriately. My only suggestion would be to expand the breakfast menu a bit.

Great !!!!

My wife and I had a motorcycle accident while staying at the Palms. The people went way out of their way to make us comfortable. Great place and pricing. Thanks Phyllis & Mike

We stayed at The Palms Hotel for two nights and had a great time. The staff at the hotel was great, very knowledgeable about great places to eat. The room was clean. Location very convenient to Duval Street. Would stay there again.

Pre-wedding vacation

5 on April 21, 2016

Our family stayed at the Palms Hotel for a pre-wedding vacation. We were only there two nights but definately would return. The staff could not have been nicer and more accomodating. Breakfast was great and the pool is beautiful. Short walk to Duval Street. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Great Location

First visit to Key West and after much research of other options we decided to try the Palms. We were not disappointed with the friendliness of the staff or the cleanliness of the room. We knew that parking would be an issue but found a spot on a side street and left the car there for the 3 night stay. We rented bikes one day and walked the other 2 days as this location is convenient for walking (as long as you are able) to most locations along Duval St. The breakfast had everything we required to get our day started. Coffee was needed earlier than available but just walked to a corner gas station early each morning. We had a fridge and microwave in our room which was a pleasant surprise. The only problems we had was the trash truck at 5:30am outside our window (no the Palms fault) and the internet was mostly nonexistent. The staff said it had an issue connecting to "apple" devices? So my advice is not to bring them! The manager, Dan, was more than accommodating and called me after we left to discuss the issue. We will absolutely return to Key West and when we do we'll hopefully be able to stay here again.

Great place to stay in Key West :-) Thanks

It was our first time in Key West and after some trouble trying to locate accommodations for an upcoming wedding, the Palm Hotel was very accommodating! Simple rooms, simple breakfast, lovely pool, great walking location to most everything. Friendly & helpful staff. It made our entire stay so enjoyable. I would highly recommend!

Great place to stay!

We stayed for 4 nights while celebrating retirement of my husband. Easy to find. We found parking a few blocks from B& B. Next day able to move car to parking area behind Palms. Bikes available for rent- reasoniblity priced and convenient. Staff very helpful. we stay after spring break, so very quiet and restful. Downtown, main attractions are within walking distance. Rooms comfortable since only used to sleep and shower. Great value.
