... board. With an hour till returning, we were on a serious mission to fully take advantage of the free rum punch. Within 10 minutes there was a sudden change in everyone onboard from laid back and quiet to rowdy hooligans. Our friend sam had a unknown rash appear and so asked the hostess to help rub in some ointment. Possibly the best looking we had seen, we all looked on as Sam had the biggest grin. Watched sunset then sailed back into key west by now everyone plastered. Ed ...
... who don't know what these places are. Essentially, Key West was (and still is) about 150 times the size of Exmouth. There are at least three Walgreens, one McDonalds, one Burger King (Hungry Jack's for you Aussies) and many other franchises. We should have known...Amercians do everything big. Regardless of the size and general commerciality of it, Key West is a really neat place. The homes and restaurants have a Victorian ...
... apartments. Many of these apartments are privately owned and rented out through an agency. The complex was a myriad of narrow roads and apartment blocks. The roads were lined with boats and launches of differing shapes and sizes. These outnumbered cars by about 5 to 1.
The apartment block looked like a 70s tenement that wouldn’t look out of place in a London suburb. Our apartment was on the 2nd floor and as we opened the door we entered a ...
I have to admit that Key West was my least favorite part of our trip. Key West itself is pretty great and very interesting. I was fascinated by the stories we heard as we toured the home of Ernest Hemingway. We were all especially interested in Hemingway's cats! I think most of us took more pictures of the cats that were everywhere than we did of any part of the house!
It was interesting to learn about Hemingway's wives and how the wife ...

Both species of red tanager (SCARLET and SUMMER)...and a very cooperative CHUCK-WILLS-WIDOW...Over all it was amazing to watch the migrant stream through the fort and the clouds of terns and Frigatebirds ...

We had everything we needed and wanted - a comfortable place to call home for 5 days and a cozy social outdoors space. The service was terrific and friendly - a problem with the shower was fixed within a couple of hours. The pool area is a lovely space, with lots of sun and shade options. Breakfast is served poolside, which we loved. The other guests were social and we found that the hotel lends itself to a casual friendly kind of atmosphere.

Historical Traveler Reviews Alexander Palms Court Key West
Terrific Place to Vacation in the Keys
The room was great, but the service was even better! We had an excellent staff that provided us with maps, suggestions, reservations, and coupons! My fiance and I had originally intended to stay in another B&B for our next two nights, but were so delighted with Alexander Palms that we cancelled our other reservation to stay here for the remainder of our trip. The location is perfect - just two blocks from Duval, but far enough away from the madness that you can still relax and enjoy a quiet night's sleep when you get home. We were still within walking distance of everything we needed and wanted to see. We would stay here again just for the remarkable staff that was willing to do whatever possible to make us have a wonderful vacation, but the rooms were also very comfortable - and the pool, sparkling. This might not be the most luxurious place to stay in the Keys, but you won't find anything else this incredible for the price you pay. And if you're like us and plan not to be holed up in a room the entire time in the Keys, then you don't need more than the wonderful comfort and great advice that Alexander Palms provides.
Will defenitely come back !!
Stayed here with my girlfriend one night, first week of november. Excellent stay, good service, lovely breakfast. Stylish room, great shower (Niagara Quality). Walking distantce from town centre. Would recommend to anyone !!!!!
Alexander Palms Court
We were originally booked at Blue Parrott Inn. Dizzy young girl gave us wrong room, but eventually turned us over to Alexander Palms court. Blue Parrott not too nice, rooms too small. Alexander very helpful and a very nice place to spend a week at. good breakfest and a very nice pool. Centrally located with a Vespa rental around the corner. These 2 places are owned by the same people who did take good care of us. Loved Key West. October a good month to go, before all the tourists get there.
We have been staying at Alexander Palms Court every year for the last 6 years. Our stay is always a week long (at least) and we always stay over the 4th of July holiday. As always, we had a wonderful experience. This trip was by far the best though. We spent hours by the pool and enjoyed the room and grounds immensely. Landon and Yuri are the BEST and provided us with kindness, lots of information and good conversation. I hope the owners know what GEMS they have in these two staff members !!!
The grounds are very private and secure and secluded behind a wrought iron fence. The landscaping is plush and they have a really nice heated pool. There are actually parking spaces for the guests and that is VERY rare in KW. The pool is quite a nice feature because so many other places we used to stay at in KW do not have them, or they are not as nice as this one. Almost all the rooms look out onto the pool and the landscaping is great. A real tropical paradise.
The continental breakfast that is offered each morning is quite nice. They offer coffee and juice, bagels, muffins and these FABULOUS croissants from a little shop on Duval. They are heavenly....
We will back for sure !!!
One of the best.
Last year I had stayed here in the begining of the summer. The place was very relaxing and, the staff was excellent, they made you feel at home. There was beautiful landscape and our suite was a true Key West style. We had a combinding room and was floored by the whole experience. I have been to the lower keys countless of times, and we have already made plans for next year and I would recomend it to anyone.
Very pleasant experience
We recently stayed 4 days here and had a very nice time. We had reserved a standard room but were surprised when we arrived to find we had been upgraded to a suite at no extra cost. Very nice relaxing pool area. The location is in a relatively quiet part of town, but close enough to Duval Street to walk to when you're ready to shop/party/etc.
Special kudos to Landon for setting up our snorkeling trip, advising us on good restaurants, and generally just being friendly and helpful. If ever we are able to vacation in Key West again, we would gladly stay here a second time.
Nice quiet atmosphere at a reasonable price.
Myself and two fellow travellers spent two nights at the Alexander
Palms Court at the end of January 2004. We found the staff to be
friendly and the pool area attractive and relaxing. While it wasn't the
Ritz I did not expect it to be given the reasonable prices for a two
bedroom/two bathroom efficency, which was what we required. It was in a
quiet area close to Duval Street. I would recommend it if you're
looking for some place reasonable, small, quiet, and with comfortable
beds. I have just recently discovered TripAdvisor, thus relied on the
Alexander Palms own website for booking. I did not feel disappointed or
deceived by their web site, the place seemed laid back and while the
rooms were on the tiny side, so was my budget. I prefer to travel
wisely...leaving money for future trips. I would go there again. And I
did not see any bugs or anything, as another writer thus claims. The
rooms were more on the homey side but by no means dirty, and I am a
self proclaimed germ-a-phobiac and I didn't feel uncomfortable.
Wrote in a few days back regarding a two night stay in late January
2004. Recommended the place for budget minded, quiet seeking
individuals, forgot to add however my sole complaint (which I did not
share with the management but would now like to suggest...To switch
your laundry detergent to a fragrance free variety. i was unable to use
your towels following my shower because of this, the sheets also held
onto the fragrance a little too well but did not overwelm me like the
towels, to which I had to re-rinse off after my initial attempt to use
them. With that said, I still would recommend the place as I found the
tropical ambiance lovely, the grounds quiet, and the tariff reasonably
A Different View
We stayed at the Alexander Palms Court in early February, although I had second thoughts about doing so after reading the previous review.
Everything turned out fine. The room, though small, was clean and comfortable and the pool area was lovely. The bathroom was small, but very functional--nice shower head and the water stayed where it was supposed to. Bed was comfy. Continental breakfast was decent--fruit and sweet rolls and coffee and tea--the usual kind of layout in a place that does not have its own cooking facility. It is my understanding that all but two rooms have kitchenettes and are larger than the one we stayed in, so if space is a priority, it would be better to spend the extra money and get a larger unit, even if one did not plan on cooking.
Worst stay in all of key West
Overpriced, understaffed and in disrepair. This place is bar-none the worst place I've ever stayed and I've been to plenty.
Their website claimed false information, the room was about the size of a walk in closet, the room had bugs and ants, the bathroom had leaky pipes and spraying sink/shower fixtures. The pool was filthy. I hope that was a cigar laying on the bottom!
Friends - do yourself a favor...Keep looking and leave this one alone.
You'll be much better off. This place ruined my stay at Key West.
