Awesome little place. The staff is extremely out going and friendly. They will show you the local places to go and set you up with any reservations. Jest tell them what you want and they'll make the arrangements. Nice warm pool and walking distance to everything.
The down side is that that place is a little run down and needs to be cleaned and updated. we were in room number one. The tile floor needs to be professionally cleaned. but the hospitality makes up for it.

Stayed here earlier this month for four nights. Staff; Sandy and Langston are the best. Very helpful and nice to work with. Very accommodating and interested in sharing info about places to eat, etc. Its a fairly old property, but is very clean,with a small pool and a gate which is locked at night. I will stay here again.

Stay here. There, I've gotten that part out of the way. What can you say to recommend a hotel/B&B in Key West? The front office staff is friendly? Of course they are-- they flippin' LIVE in Key West! The scenery is beautiful? Once again, DUH.
But the Alexander Palms is a funky, friendly, lovely little place. I liked the small touches -- every day, the housekeeper would not only make my daughter's bed, she would arrange her stuffed animals to make them "comfortable." The continental breakfast (tropical fruit, bagels, croissants, good coffee and dreamy pain au chocolate) was filling.
But, of course, the real attraction is the pool. Beautiful, warm, slightly salty, and ever-so-inviting. We hit it twice a day for the week we were here (you do the math).
Landon and Rick are glad to concierge for you -- we used them to rent bikes, arrange our Tortugas trip, even find a hot sauce store. Since you're located a block from Ana's Cuban Deli, I'd recommend renting bikes to tour the island.

Fifteen of us, ranging from a baby to some grandparents, stayed at Alexander Palms for five days for a family get-together. It was perfect for our needs. Staff was helpful and accommodating, especially Jonna, who arranged for bicycles, made great suggestions for restaurants and activities, and provided us with discount coupons for a very nice dinner cruise. Breakfast was free, available all morning poolside, with something for everyone. Coffee was really good! The rooms were comfortable, and it was great to have kitchenettes, as we cooked and ate dinner family-style most evenings. Maid service was excellent. The pool was sparkling clear and clean. Room rates are quite reasonable, something we had to keep in mind with a group of people with assorted purse sizes. Granted, it's not the Ritz-Carlton, but it's a clean, quiet place, and it was family-friendly and just right for our group.

We stayed here over New Years. The motel just a few blocks from downtown. The location was great and so were the folks who ran the Alexander Palms. Overall it was a decent value for new years. However the bathroom as tiny and needs to be updated. Additionally there was an occasional critter (lizards) in the room.

There are so many places to stay in Key West it is hard to decide without a friendly recommendations. I lucked out finding The Alexander Palms Court on my own via bedandbreakfast.com . It was terrific! Just two blocks north of Duval near the Southernmost Point (the QUIET end of Duval).
This is a small quaint 50's retro style motel/B&B with a wonderful pool area. The rooms might need some updating but that adds to the retro character. All of the rooms face towards the pool/courtyard. Our room was very clean, the linen was fresh, the beds were very comfortable and everything worked. Sad to say we left way too early in the morning so didn't get to experience the breakfast.
Landon was the best host and even had a cold beer for me when I arrived. I can't say he will have a beer ready for everyone and will probably hate me for telling everyone about that part of my experience. He said I needed a beer after I had just arrived from participated in a running relay race from Miami to Key West. I agreed and asked if he had one. Lo and Behold - he had one last beer in his mini-fridge. Thanks Landon - I'll see you again next year.

I wanted to echo all the other reviews here. It's not the most luxurious place on the island, but if you want that, there are crowded and expensive resorts for you.
My fiancee and I stayed here just in time to get stuck in Key West thanks to "Hurricane" Isaac, and had a blast. The staff are simply fantastic and made sure we were all set for a day of rain and wind, including exchanging personal cell phone numbers, directions to emergency shelters if necessary, and so on. Fortunately, none of that was necessary.
Our stay was great and we constantly marveled at how lucky it was that we checked one last time in the area before booking at a nearby overpriced hotel. The place is funky, the location is great (the quiet side of the island, but an easy walk to the main drag on Duval), and the price just can't be beat. It's also a short walk to Ana's Cuban Deli down the street, another place that strikes me as just quintessentially Key West.
The place has free wifi (with varying reception in the rooms, but plenty strong to sit by the pool in the morning and read the news), a continental breakfast, and endless charm.
We absolutely plan to stay here again when we return to Key West, and you should too.

Over the Christmas holiday, we went to Key West with some friends. This was a holiday getaway and this property seemed like a good option. Our intention was to find a property that was quaint and fun in an area that was close to everything we wanted to do and give us a true feel of what Key West had to offer.
On our arrival and after signing in we were given a tour of the property from the office manager who was pleasant and had a great personality. She was informative about the property and giving us information about things to see and do while in town.
The curb appeal is nice and the courtyard was super cute and well decorated for the holidays. Even if it wasn't the holidays, the area was lush and seemed pretty well maintained. The pool was the focal point of the courtyard with many rooms that surrounded it. Similar to a "Melrose Place" type layout. At night the area was lit with different colored lights which was suiting for this area. They even had Holiday music piped in. Nice touch.
We reserved Unit 9, located just off the pool and next to the office. As far as room locations go, I think it was pretty good. The complimentary breakfast set-up was right outside our room. With the office next door allowed us to have a good Wi-Fi signal which I understand wasn't the case in many rooms. When we first walked into the room, it had a pretty good open feel with a kitchenette off the main room. It had a good sized bed (I believe Queen) and then a futon in the living area which could fold out if needed. The décor was bright in color where the bed was and off white in the rest of the room. One thing that was off was it had a very "clinical" smell. I think it's time to change the chemical products.
The bathroom was "retro" style. It had a new sink and toilet which was nice, however after that it went downhill for me. The retro tile was ok and I understand where they were going, but it has seen better days. What wasn't great about it or the rest of the bathroom was the lack of cleanliness. The chemical smell when we walked in the room was clearly not from cleaning the bathroom. In a word the bathroom was filthy. I can deal with the "outdated look" as long as I know the place I am staying is clean. The room that you would expect to be the cleanest and where the most time should be spent by a housekeeper was not given much attention at all. Right when we walked in there was noticeable hair in the shower, sinks, places on the wall, and on the toilet there was a very long strand of hair. Around the light switch and door frame was filthy dirty. The hair dryer plug was broken and could be dangerous if used. The shower head had calcium deposits that made it so only half of the shower would spray. The light fixture above the sink was not only rusted in many places the bulbs were of different assortments that looks hodgepodge and frankly just lazy. The walls had many gouges as well as the framework that had been painted over which over time it starts to look tacky. Not a huge deal, but coupled with lack of cleanliness, it's not good and starts to make you wonder about the rest of the room. Bottom line is it's hotel 101 to have a clean and functioning bathroom.
The kitchenette was unusable. Why? It too was not clean and had ants. It's no wonder; I was able to find crumbs from a previous guest's food. I will never prepare food in a room that not only isn't clean, but has a problem with insects. The walls were "white" but honestly this would be a great opportunity to get a bucket of Key West colored paint and give the room a cute Key West feel. Instead it was plain and totally drew your attention to how unclean and outdated it really was. When you open the refrigerator, the door was rusted on the top. This is unacceptable. If you can't maintain the appliances, then don't have them.
The bedroom/living area was fine. Given the state of the bathroom and the kitchenette I had some reservations. The bed itself was actually very comfortable. We could have used some kind of night stand as there was none on either side of the bed. The floor lamps were fun and had a "palm tree" look to them and the artwork for the most part was appropriate for Key West, but there was a couple that seemed "garage sale finds" and didn't go. There was a kitchenette table with two chairs by the door which was handy. The bed nook was a nicely painted lime green, but I would like to have seen them take this concept a step further and bring some more color to the rest of the room. A complimentary color or something other than the drab white that just shows flaws would have been an improvement.
Overall, I would say the property is cute but there seems to be a lack of attention to detail when it comes to cleaning and the decorating seems at times inconsistent with the overall feel of the entire property. This is a major fail and probably the reason I would never stay here again.

Adorable little hotel, very close to the southernmost point, and Duval. The pool and outdoor area has tons of character. The staff was friendly and informative. Free communal pool towels, pool floats, and complimentary breakfast that's served pool-side. The room was clean and spacious, with a small kitchenette (room #9). It was perfect for our overnight stay. No central AC but the wall unit cranked out really cold air. Also, there's limited parking... But free parking nonetheless! I would recommend this hotel for a budget-friendly traveler that's okay without having all of the extra frills.

My fiancé and I have found our go to place when we visit. What an amazing experience. The woman at the front desk helped us with everything from breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even a sunset cruise. The rooms are cosy and very cute! I loved the laid back feel, and the privacy. Don't forget to take a dip in the salt water pool. Not a bad walk up and down Duvall, it was a nice way to sight see! If you are looking for a nice retreat without all of the noise, this is the perfect place! We will definitely be visiting again!
