Wonderful resort with an incredible location, probably the best in Key West. We stayed in an updated penthouse with an beautiful view overlooking the pool and the gulf. Very enjoyable sitting on the balcony in the evenings watching the boats cruise by. Located on the marina and yet so close to Duval street. A car is not necessary in my opinion as you can walk everywhere. There is a shuttle to the airport. Also had a great time hanging out at the pool or on the dock. The staff is wonderful too, easy to talk to and helpful. Be back next year.

We have gone down to Key West twice now and both times have stayed at the Galleon Resort. It's not a "fancy" hotel full of amenities but it's in a fantastic location, has a cute little tiki bar, small (very small) beach and did I mention ...FANTASTIC location! It's right next to the marina, blocks from downtown, on the water...and the staff is wonderful. The first time we stayed there it was just 2 of us and we got a one bedroom - it had a full kitchen, living room, ocean view balcony, washer/dryer. The second time we went there, we were a party 7 - we got a great suite that had 2 bedrooms, each with private bath and then an upstairs loft with 2 single beds and then a sofa bed in the living room...also with a full kitchen, living room, ocean view balcony. It also has a medium sized pool right next to the outside bar & beach. When I go back down to Key West, I will stay here again. I love having the option of the kitchen - not that we cook while there but eating out for 7-10 days straight can get old and I love having the option of picking up lunch meat for sandwiches or even just being able to take leftovers back to the room for breakfast the next morning! it's also next to the Marina if you want to do any parasailing, deep sea fishing, etc. If you do stay here, stop by the Tarpin Bar (located in the wine/sandwich shop across from the hotel) - best drinks I have ever had! Their key lime martini is divine and their espresso martini simply the BEST I've ever had - I want to go back to FL just to go to the Tarpin!

Just adequate accomodation as a bit tired and past its sell by date. But great view of harbour and only minutes from Harbour area/Duval Street. Limited amount of parking and a bit tight if you had a large SUV as we did.
We booked back in March and were asked for a 40% deposit, which we considered a bit steep but maybe that is common in Key West. Also unusual was the fact we had to sign on arrival a list of all the items in the rooms - and the list included everything !!
However, would probably stay again as the location cancels out the negatives.

Room Tip: A higher room (as we had) maybe quieter as the harbour board walk is below, assuming you are on the...

Well the Galleon is by far my absolute favorite resort...Pool,beach,location in key west. However the staff leaves much to be desired.... I am not an owner here, paying for a "hotel" like atmosphere and they really aren't trying to please. Think twice before booking here.....i think they fired the nicest person behind the desk!! Another point....the outlets don't work well....to charge anything one must jiggle the plug till it gets it right!! Not good !!

Room Tip: Don't book your reservations with "Jerry " he's a rock with a voice

Stayed at the Galleon. The facility was not too bad. Parking was a nightmare. No room for any vehicle to park. My car was hit by what appeared to be a laundry cart and left six dents and scratches along entire side of vehicle. Talked to the manager and was treated poorly by him. No help at all with the situation. Had to call KYPD. Would not stay there again!!!

We needed to be in Key West for a wedding so my Husband and I planned to take an extended 3 week vacation driving down the coast from NJ taking in sights, and visiting family along the way since we were traveling with our 1 and 3 year olds. After staying in Hampton Inns Hotels along the way, we were really looking forward to reaching the Galleon which we booked under the impression we were going to spend the week in a timeshare unit that we paid cash since the booking agent told us we couldn't use points. After living out of suitcases for two weeks, we were really looking forward to unpacking our bags and cooking homemade meals for our family. We are RCI timeshare owners so we are very familiar with their level of accomodations. When we finally arrived exhausted and ready to settle in, we were APPALLED to find that instead of a timeshare unit, they put us in a recently renovated HOTEL ROOM in a separate building facing the busy street with two flights of stairs and no elevator, that was clearly designed for partiers, not a family with toddlers. We were clear with the booking agent we had two small children and needed something appropriate. The room was unsafe. It had a utility closet with the furnace and exposed wires behind an accordian door next to the front door so my 3 year old was facinated with. I asked for a bolt to be put in the door stating a safety hazard, and was refused. There was NO DRAWERS to unpack our things! None! Housekeeping brought a luggage rack instead! There was nowhere for my kids to sit and eat their meals! My kids are 1 and 3. They are messy eaters. They ate standing with their food propped on the tiny groovy wooden cocktail table/footstool that was the only thing in the room along with a tiny microfiber couch. There was a king bed, a pullout couch, two groovy 12x12 cocktail tables, and the microfiber chair. After pulling out the couch bed, and setting up my baby's portacrib, we had to push the rest of the furniture into the closet just so we could get to the bathroom! As families with toddlers know, we spend A LOT of time in the room resting because the kids can't be out in the heat long before melting down. Needless to say, our room was miserable. In addition, the only window overlooked a housekeeping service area directly below our window! Staff often would hide in that area sneaking a quick smoke and to chit-chat all day long so I finally had to resort to closing the blinds on the only window in the unit so my Son would quit asking if it was a party! The Housekeeping staff took pity on us and was very kind. The Concierge/Timeshare Sales Mgr was also good, but we met her too late for her to intervene. The location is unbeatable. Next to the marina and good dining, and close to Duval Street. The room decor was beautiful but not appropriate for young children. We did take a timeshare tour and found the real units to be exactly what we had been looking for. For the money we spent, we could have gone to the Hyatt or another hotel accustomed to customer service standards, but we wanted to provide a homey atmosphere for the kids. If you are a partier, this room is perfect. If you are a family, dont fall into the same trap! Once you are there, the front desk staff say they can do nothing to change your room since the owners were already paid. We made the best of our time there for the sake of the children.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights in June. The pool is great. The beach is great. The dock and tiki hut bar is great. Hanging out on the water and sipping ice cold beverages in the sun with some Jimmy Buffet playing was one of the highlights of out South Florida vacation.

Everything was clean and well kept. The service was good too!

We already made reservations in the Luxery Suite for May of 2013!
