Travel Blogs from Key West
The trip from north Miami to Key West should have taken 3.5 to 4 hours to drive. But we made some mistakes which resulted in an 8 hour day of traveling. Some of the days difficulties included: sitting in Miami's downtown core traffic for over an hour; Maya vomiting twice, despite taking Gravol - the second time after consuming a huge fish lunch; …
... we were walking that we drove Hwy 1 when in Massachusetts. We stopped at the 0 mile marker for a picture and then headed down the street to the Green Parrot, a bar on the corner of Southard and Whitehead. After a couple of drinks we decided to call it an early night. I don't think that happens too often in Key West.
Looking forward to a lazy day and a ghost tour tomorrow.

... a way in and out. After we had eaten and about to leave they started feeding the fish.........I have a good picture. There were many Tarpon (they are long and skinny and grow to be as big as 300 pounds) and a few Nurse sharks.......those are the ones the whole family swam with in the Bahamas two years ago. Glad I wasn't in there with them!
We have really only eaten out a couple of times. There is a picture of Ralphie at ...
This morning Dan earned gold stars by getting up and going over to Ana's Cuban Cafe and brining back coffee. I wasn't even out of bed when he got back with it. And it's so good! I can see where it would be really easy to get a Cuban Cafe con Leche habit going. There's a richness about the coffee itself, almost as if it has some chocolate or caramel in it. It isn't sweet but it sure goes down easy!
Since it was a little late (again!) we started packing up ...
... Flagler built a railroad to Key West via a series of over water rail trestles. In 1935, WW1 Vets were hired to help build highway bridges to connect the islands The Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 (a Category 5) ended the railroad. The highway, now US 1 or the Overseas Highway,remains as the connector of all the islands.
On to Key West, since that is where we spent our time. Key West, or Cayo Hueso --translation Bone Island- is the ...
How has this b&b rated in the past?
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
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 !!!
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.
Myself and two fellow travellers spent two nights at the Alexander
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.
