“Great accommodation, lovely staff, fab location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Silver Palms Inn as part of our honeymoon in June! We loved our time at the hotel. We were upgraded to a gorgeous room overlooking the pool and given a complimentary bottle of bubbly as we were celebrating our honeymoon. The accommodation was very clean and the breakfast that was included was lovely. We loved the location of the hotel as we were close enough to all the bars and restaurants of Key West, but far enough away from Mallory Square - fun to visit, wouldn't stay there unless you're on a stag or hen trip. The staff were all friendly and helpful if you needed anything. The pool area is small, but very well looked after and comfortable. All in all this was a great addition to our dream holiday!

The hotel is modern and quiet. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help in anything you asked for. It is within walking distance of everything and I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We were at the Sheraton trying to treat ourselves. Did not like it and hated the location. Went online and found this gem. Cheaper even factoring in our penalty from the Sheraton. Not fancy but very clean, nicely decorated and in a much better location for us. Breakfast included and a salt water pool. Loved it

We were recently stayed at the Silver Palms Inn , The room was up to date ,not a bad size and the complimentary breakfast was nice . Now the other problems were..... We paid for our room in advance but we had to pay an extra service fee $ 15.00 a night when we got there. We thinking it for bug spray . The had ants in our room and reported the next morning to the front desk . Of course we were asked if we left food out (the ants were on the ceiling) that was a No. They said they would send some up to spray. when we got back that afternoon at 3:15pm no one add sprayed or cleaned our room. The maid showed to clean at 3:30 . At 11:00 that night the ants were so many and growing in number we called the desk and ask to be moved. They said No(again we were ask if we had food ) because they were full and sent someone to out room at 11:00 pm to spray . So they did and we got to smell the insecticide all night look . The next morning the ants were back so again we reported it . They said they would send maintenance
up to take our room apart and fumigate . we got back 7 hours later to find yes they did fumigate and they left all the windows and the door to our balcony open the whole time we were gone so that anything that could fly or craw could come in . We were left to stay in that room the smell from all the chemical were overwhelming till the next morning when we check out and yes the ants were back and we now had a lizard that morning. we travel a lot and have stayed in many 5 star hotel even in other countries never have we been treated like we didn't matter till the Silver Palm Inn . Who leave you in a room they just fumigated ???? Oh we do have pictures of these problems.

Room Tip: don't go for the room with a balcony over looking the pool because you will have to look for it...

Dear dorichd:

Thank you for taking the time to write such a candid review about your recent stay with us. We are disappointed to hear that your stay did not meet your expectations. Please understand that when booking through a third party website (i.e. Expedia, Travelocity, etc.) a $15.00 service fee is due to the hotel upon check-in. This is stated on the confirmation letter that you receive from the third party website. As for the issue you had with the ants, we deeply apologize for the inconvenience. Please know that an issue like this does not normally occur at our hotel. We pride ourselves on the level of service and comfort we provide to our guests and it saddens us to hear that your stay was unsatisfactory. Despite what you encountered, we hope you enjoyed Key West overall and hope you come back to visit the island again one day.

We enjoyed our stay here. The only complaint I have is I had booked through bookit.com, and upon checkin I was informed there would be an additional $15 per night "hotel service fee". Plus tax. I was aggravated about this. I felt if you already paid over $200 per night, everything should have been included up front.

Beautiful, clean rooms. Very friendly staff. If staying here and you're a light sleeper, ask for a room in the back of the hotel. We stayed right above the lobby and noise from the street was a little loud in the morning, but not terrible. Only a couple of short blocks from Duvall Street which was great! Have a continental breakfast in the morning, but it is just that. Bagels, toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal. No hot food. The first day it seemed like the food was mostly gone by 9:30 and not replenished. Much better the second day. Free parking. Would absolutely stay here again.
