Unique hotel. Centrally located in Key West. Enjoyed the casual breakfast and seating areas. Parking was not a big problem.

Awesome feedback! Thank you for sharing your experience at our charming historical guest house. Glad to hear you enjoyed breakfast by the pool area. Parking does get a little difficult to find specially during the high season, special events, and holidays, but fortunately there is free parking on the streets nearby. We hope to see you next time you visit our island.

Very small rooms! Breakfast area only had one table, so we had to stand.

We have many tables and seats at the bar for breakfast, so we're sorry your group had to stand for breakfast. That is certainly not the norm. We're sorry you weren't able to enjoy your stay with us

Great place.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
I stayed at the Palms in Key West in september of 2010. I would recommend it to anyone; the place has a rare kind of charm with its wraparound porches, birds in cages and quiet location on white street. The staff were friendly and accomidating even if it was hurricane season and I was one of maybe three other people staying in the hotel. I was never disturbed and they even helped with the delivery of my baggage. There is breakfast by the pool every morning and it goes late enough for us types who happen to have been out all night to take advantage of. When I return to key west I will definitely be calling the Palms first.

Good choice within a few blocks of Duval Street/Old Town

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, free continental breakfast
Cons: wireless connection poor
Great choice for the price. Bike rental is optional -- but a great way to get into the main shopping/restaurant area. Staff was friendly upon arrival; then needed coaching on the second; and then friendly again on departure day. (Obviously, there were three different people on three different occasions!) Room had sand on the floor from the previous day. Housekeeping made the bed and freshened towels -- but that sand was still on the floor. I didn't want to look, but checked under the bed on departure day. Not the prettiest site under there. The "wireless internet" service they promote is there -- just impossible to get a strong enough signal. I finally wound up in the front office and was able to use their computer to log onto the internet. Overall, great value for the money -- with just a few action items that could have made the stay perfect.
