    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.

    Terrific Place to Vacation in the Keys

    from

    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 !!

    Alexander Palms Court

    from

    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.

    Tropical Paradise

    from

    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.

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    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

    priced.

    A Different View

    from

    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

    from

    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.

There were a lot of old crusties on the ferry which was a little surprising given Key West's reputation for being a party town. Still, good to be the spriteful youth on board. I'll take it ! I grabbed some breakfast and a couple of beers on the boat, not necessarily in that order, and tried ...
