“Close but not too close”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is more of a motel than a hotel. Check in was super speedy. Plenty of parking. Really nice room, spacious and clean. Pool area a little small but pool itself was nice. Breakfast was OK - nothing great but it was very crowded and a lot of queueing involved to get toast!!
About 30 mins slow walk to Mallory Square and 5 mins to the bottom of Duval St.
Overall, a pretty good place to stay but there is no bar here and no opportunity to get any food which was a shame. It would have been nice to have ordered a drink and some lunch by the pool.
Very attentive staff.

We do appreciate your feedback and please know that this is an idea we can take into consideration for the future to better accommodate our guests.

What a find! We stayed here for 6 nights. The staff were unfailingly polite, friendly and helpful, even lending me a lap-top. The room was large and tastefully furnished with a balcony and roomy shower. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel pool is small but attractively laid out with lots of sunbeds and chairs. Parking was free (a bonus in Key West) and the complimentary breakfast was excellent. The hotel is situated just off Duval Street and you can walk into the centre of Key West in 15 minutes. It is on a quiet street, near to a beautiful church and lots of restaurants and shops. Watch out for the chickens, they are everywhere! We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Was there in July but it was a repeat stay from previous year. It's a newer hotel and within walking distance to duval. Hotel is very modern and clean and for the amenities you would think to be paying more. has a nice complimentary continental breakfast too. Just a couple of blocks off of duval so you don't have to worry about moving your car and having to find

and pay for parking.

This is a delayed review--stayed here in June 2012 with a group of friends. Average room rate was about $200/night. Location is excellent, far enough away from the Duval Street area that the neighborhood stays quiet once you turn in for the night (except for the roosters, which is problem no matter where you are on the island), but close enough that it is a reasonable walk to the main attractions. For our group, the walk from hotel to Mallory Square took us between 15-20 minutes walking a moderate pace. Rooms were immaculately clean, had completely updated furnishings and fixtures. The pool was clean and nicely kept, albeit somewhat small, but overall a pleasant place to hang out and relax. Bathrooms were sleek and modern with walk-in, tiled shower. Staff members were easygoing and helpful. The only complaint I could make is that in the main office/reception area they appear to use a very strong, odd-scented disinfectant that gives a very unpleasant and intense odor of rubbing alcohol. Nowhere near a deal-breaker, just something mildly bothersome that is worth noting for management. Finally, although it wasn't a factor for us since we went at the beginning of the offseason, I took note of, and very much appreciated, the fact that they have a minimum age requirement that appears to be intended to weed out the younger crowd during the spring break and senior week timeframes.

Dear hermwinningham:

Thank you so much for the great review about your stay with you friends back in June. You know what they say...better late than never, right? We'd like to apologize for the unpleasant odor of the cleaning products that were used in the lobby. We normally receive much praise about the aroma of the product we use and are always asked what it is. Nonetheless, we are still glad it has been brought to our attention. We are also pleased to hear that you appreciated our minimum age requirement here at the hotel. We don't have this policy in effect to be mean; we simply do it for the courtesy of our other guests. We hope to see you and your friends again the next time you visit Key West!

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights during F.F. 2012 and it was very nice. We will definately be returning again next year ! Our 3rd. floor room was spotless with a nice island theme to it. As other folks have mentioned the location to the festivities is perfect . A short 8-10 mitnute walk and your right in the heart of the action ! Parking is fine and the staff is easy going and pleasant. We had an issue with our credit card on arrival and the young lady at the front desk was super helpful and helped us get it corrected. The evening before we left the night clerk ( Sergie ) ? Was also great in printing our boarding passes for us and asking us if we needed any help with anything our transportation arragements to get to the airport. Now that's service ! Put your mind at ease and stay at the Silver Palms.....

Room Tip: We had a 3rd. floor room I believe on the south side, and it had pool view to one side and Palm tree...

Just far enough from the madness, but close enough to partake. A great hotel within walking distance of Duval Street and all that Fantasy Fest has to offer. Great to have parking on site, and such a lovely and clean room. Everything worked well. When you are in Key West you have to accept some of the circumstances. I.E. Cockerels in the street. Hence the Hotel provides you with Ear Plugs. Its Key West! Would come here again without a second thought.
